Since season 6 started I've run at least 57 exploration cluster mini-missions, but only one of those has been an Aid the Planet mission. I'm curious if I've just been having bad luck with the RNG choosing my missions, or if anybody else has experienced this as well.
I'm fairly certain the Cryptic servers are telepathic. Every time I go into an exploration cluster, it gives me exactly what I don't want. A few weeks ago, I went in looking for a space combat mission to test a build, and I must have gone through 30 systems before I got one. More than half of those were Aid the Planet.
