I am not sure I fully understood your message but from what I gathered. I also don't understand your logic.
Too much? Even if my number was a bit too high. We are talking about a one time reward for a currently impossible mission.
If anything I think I was too small!
5 modifiers!!!! Now that is a prize!!!!
If it wasn't clear before. My logic is the following.
Effort required equates to deserving a higher reward but not so high it is destabilizing to the game state.
And the effort here is extreme. Even if the task is simple. It's gonna take years! I mean I have played for over a year and am barely 3/4 there. I don't expect to be there by the two year mark.
Funny enough. I am a collector and was doing this even with no reward (had the 1500 long before they updated it).
So I don't make this remark in the sense that I was cheated. I don't care if there is no prize. But if you are gonna give me a prize. Give me a decent prize. 1k digimoney is almost insulting.
Heck 10 burst caps would have been nicer. Or as I said. 5 digimodifiers. Lol.
By comparison. I feel 10k is almost too small but at least it would be large enough to feel like a prize.
