Topic: Random assignments balancing
The first balancing pass is now in, which includes:
Objective balance: NPCs, mining/harvesting amounts, transport volumes, artifact areas
Reward balance: NIC, faction tokens, relation bonuses/hits and level progression
As mentioned, the first patch will include level 0-2 assignments only, as that will be the limit for Alpha 1 islands, so those levels are our focus currently. But of course feel free to comment on higher levels too.
One thing I'd like to point out is that when you request an assignment, the info window shows you an estimate for the NIC reward. It's an estimate because it does not yet include the "walking compensation" part, which means that the final reward should be always higher than that, depending on the distance of the objective locations.
