Just did a small sample of beacons here's what we got. 10 Light Indi STAR beacons: 11K hightech, 26.6K Indi No more than 30 of each fragment 1 escalation. 10 Medium Pelestial STAR Beacons: 9.7K HighTech No more than 30 of each fragment 2 escalations. 1, yes 1 Medium Pel 1 Stripe (NO STAR)Beacon: 30k common kernals 150 damaged frag-75perfect. took us twenty minutes to run the 10 and like 3 min to run the 1 stripe. In my assessment the Star beacons are a waste of time since T2+ no absolutely no value. We were pretty demoralized having pretty much wasted an hr of our time. anyone have a sample for medium 2 stripes. For being the 2nd hardest beacon in the game light star beacons are pretty worthless. Zoom beacons are still a huge waste of time. My suggestion is allow us to combine beacons at a depreciating value. For example, if i were to combine two Star beacons(1 strip) instead of getting the 200% value instead give it a value of 175% and if i were to combine it again with another beacon give it 225% of the reward and have it tier.
BeaconA+BeaconB=BeaconD @175% reward. instead of 200% you lose a quarter of the value
BeaconC+BeaconD=BeaconF @225% reward. 50% loss on the beacon
beaconG+BeaconF=BeaconH @250% reward. 25% loss of value
Instead of wasting time doing these small beacons allow us to combine for bigger reward be a little faster, but taking an overall loss. at the cost of 4 beacons you only get 250% of the reward. This would give a reason to buy beacons from the token shop. And Maybe you gotta produce these @ a terminal @ a price(another nic sink)
What do yall think?
