I'd like to know the criteria, not so that I can make the shortest mission possible, but so I can simply make sure my missions are acceptable. I'd be rather annoyed if I made a mission and it didn't meet the criteria. What do you do then? Start guessing at what's wrong with it. You could add extra enemies, way points, and conversations. And have no success. Perhaps all you're missing is 1 custom costume or something like that. Playing guessing games is not fun.
I've read that the mission needs to be at least 20 minutes long. I have no idea where this was posted in the forums since I was told through twitter. My question is, assuming that 20 minutes long is the criteria. How do they know how long a mission takes? A mission could take 20 minutes if you read all the text but less if you just skip through it.
