Does time spend on cryptic maps count?

I played a mission that involved talking to 3 Ferengi in Drozana.

If this time does count, then you could make cryptic-map-missions that just idle to collect 10,20,30 hours of play time, while idling on the map and doing DOFFs or auctions.

If this time does not count, then missions on cryptic maps are punished.

And another question that should be done is that if you calculate the missions playing in elite mode, is not the same and the duration thereof. I always play in such elite fighting and last longer. Like my missions, I calculate the time it takes to see how elite, I have to calculate the length of time it takes is not correct, it should be for the amount of interaction and fulfill goals. It is assumed that you have put in foundry lately counting items and objects that you put on the map should be used to determine if a mission just to get resources or a mission is actually playable.

A greeting.

Pardon the language, but English is not my native language and use a translator.

I also have 2 missions that I am sure people are not doing in less than half an hour but still don't qualify.

I am fairly certain from my experiments that they do not.

Good.

Again I remind the devs that this still does not work properly, I know some of the ones by Cryptic have solved it, remember not only the 10 artists who write in your forum and twitter are what create assignments and creators are not only in English.

A greeting.

I'm suspecting an issue with how the average time is calculated.
On further investigation, my mission is showing this symptom as well. I think it would be difficult (if not impossible) to complete my mission in 20 minutes, much less fewer than 15.

That's less than 3 minutes per map.

Mines at 71 reviews now and is still red texted!

Did you play it on your own a lot while testing? This includes stuff like finishing the first map, publishing and then playing through it quickly completing all the objectives.

Zorbane:

I played it extensively, but only while it was unpublished. When I test published it (for group combat tests and so forth) I always cloned it and published the clone instead to avoid contaminating the "gold copy."
