I don't think you can create a 20 minute mission where the mobs just kill each other. There's a limit of 25 enemy groups, which means 12 on each side, and I think the fight will end long before that point. I could be wrong, however. Maybe if you only used battleships it could take that long.

I don't have a problem with missions like the Nagus Dailies personally. However, I think it's problematic that the Foundry rewards still encourage the playing of shorter missions. Ideally you'd get the same reward for spending an hour playing three 20 minute missions, or one 60 minute mission.

For that reason, the current change is really just a hack to fix the problem of console clickers. A more comprehensive change to award exp, etc, based off of mission duration would be much better.
