    I think many users will be very happy to hear that MindArk is devising a change to the mission rewards system that will allow individual missions to award non-tradeable Attribute Tokens, which can be turned in to an NPC in exchange for attribute points.

    This system would address two of the major concerns we have received in feedback from participants regarding the mission rewards rebalancing-

    1. A larger number of mission creatures can continue to reward mission efforts in the form of increasing attributes.
    2. Participants will be able to choose the best time to redeem their attribute rewards, for example after having skilled up 'naturally' to a certain level.


    We are finishing up the necessary adjustments to the mission rewards formulas and guidelines provided to planet partners to accommodate the new attribute token system and the awarding of fractional attributes. Once those adjustments are completed, planet partners will have the ability to provide everyone with an overview of the new rewards that will be implemented on Aug. 21, so that participants can make informed decisions as to which missions to complete over the summer.

    So basically you've caved in to the loudly whining minority as usual.

    Presumably this also means that attributes will now be buyable via the trading of tokens, which will take away most of the reason people seem to want them in the first place.
    The attribute tokens will not be tradable. Sorry, I should have pointed this out in my previous post. I have updated my post to prevent any misunderstanding.

    @ Bjorn

    Thank you for addressing the concerns of those who have been postponing picking up mission rewards for the reasons you mention. Please, however, make those tokes untradeable or, as has been mentioned, it makes the whole attribute system largely pointless.

    Edit: damn my slow ISP. :P

    Good, that's a lot better than the alternative.

    The fact that this allows postponing of attribute award pick-up implies that the attribute rewards will continue to be in levels instead of "volume" (i.e. tt value for skill chip). Can you confirm this?

    Thank you.

    Hopefully the planet partners will act as quickly.

    So what you're saying is, the opinion of people who have spent 90% of their time for the last 2 years doing missions is less valuable than that of people who haven't bothered doing missions at all. The more engaged with the mission system someone has been, the less worthy their opinion about the mission system becomes.

    Do you want to have a think about that one?
    I sure do!

    It has nothing to do with your time being less valuable whatsoever.

    It's just that not all of us can afford to spend thousands of peds each month to finnish the missions. And besides that, some simply don't have the time to grind all day.

    Personally, I had a plan all lined out about how I was to do the missions and had about 15 attribute rewards still unclaimed. But I just needed more time to finish some 10k's before claiming.

    And that time is now being taken away. That's how I feel about that.

    And how does the number of missions I have done have anything to do with my analysis of the poll results? Do you think I faked the poll results to reflect my own opinion?
    The number of missions has nothing to do with the poll results indeed. But for me it creates a picture on the voting population (read: you). If I was you, I would say the same.

    So, no, I don't think you faked the poll.

    By the way, the reason I would prefer the changes to happen sooner is because I don't want to waste time getting more attributes and novas from the missions I have yet to complete. I would rather have the skill rewards in the new system.

    The nova's are indeed a crap reward, well, more of an insult actually but hey, the end bonus would be great!
