Stipend needs to be given on Dec 1, not "anniversary day".

The whole point of staggering the stipend across the whole month, has it's answer found in the dilithium exchange. If everyone got their stipends on the 1st, it would cause a pricing instability. C-Points would buy less dilithium as everyone competes to be the cheapest price on the exchange, and it wouldn't be as attractive for people to spend c-points on, if the market struggles to recover. Cryptic's financial future relies on that exchange being more attractive for those paying for c-points to sell for dilithium. They have a vested interest in keeping the exchange rate as stable, and as high as possible.
I think Cryptic would be far more likely to agree to starting the stipends mid-way through a month (i.e. the day lifetime pre-releases were first sold) than having everyone's stipend being received on the same day.
