Just ran mars again and I got 2400 dil. It's strange that it's back to paying out 2400 dil without bonus hour today when it was paying out 2100 dil with bonus hour just a day ago. It seems highly improbable that a foundry change made nearly a year ago was responsible for such a huge change in pay out in just a single day, but I suppose it was just bugged and it got fixed.Thanks Bran. (and cryptic team)
Yeah, ran a foundry mission today too, same one that had been reduced before, is back up to what it was before that late sept/oct patch. /shrug. Dunno what was going on. Will re-test to confirm tomorrow, but I guess whatever was changed, got changed back lol.
Well, it seems like everyone is having different results. I run Sword everyday on 6 different characters as part of my dilly farm. A couple of months ago, I noticed the reward go up to 2400, non-bonus hour. It did NOT matter how long it took me to do the mission, whether I blew through it in 7 minutes, or went afk in the middle and took a 1/2 hour, 2400 dilly. Period.
Now, it's down to 1920. Consistantly. Funny how that math works out to exactly 480 dilly missing. I really think this deserves to be looked into by the devs. There is something either a) Wrong, or b) they are not coming clean about.
This game is farmy enough to lose that dilly. That's all my entire game has become. Farm, farm, farm, and it's getting old.
I think it had something to do with the foundry mission mass republishing that had to be done when S8 launched. It's likely that this reset all the average play timers on the spotlight missions and those who played them when they were republished simply sped through them, unintentionally lowering the reward. I could be wrong but it seems plausible for the moment.
