This surge in base XP missions have effectively made one of the big reasons for purchasing premium time null. If the base XP missions persist I will quit buying premium time altogether. Premium time is meant to reduce the grind, at the expense of the player. Base XP missions negate that. I am not saying that it doesn't have other benefits but i does reduce it's value immensely. WG seems to be doing every thing they can to get me to stop spending money here. Well, they get their wish, Embargo on.

The players run Barter Town, not WG.

By "surge in BXP missions" you mean Twitch missions for European Tokens? I expect this to be of limited significance for most players. Only the more active players watch forums/twitch.

Prem times main draw is to speed up grinding. Given all the tech-trees, plenty of players have plenty of grinding to do. I doubt releasing more BXP-focused missions will reduce prem time purchases.

I purchase premium time to speed up the grind for leveling up ships and making faster credits. It has never been about mission xp. I will continue to purchase premium time even if every mission was base xp. I think mission xp and premium time really have nothing to do with each other for the majority of players.

Twitch missions, some KOTS missions, EU containers, directives and other previous missions. It will reduce my premium time purchases.

Premium time has no effect on base xp

 

My point exactly, I buy premium time to shorten the grind, base xp missions make it so my spending money on premium time is less value, so why buy it if it doesn't shorten the grind.

Or you can just play the game and whatever bonus you get by doing it is a nice side effect

Lolwut.

 

Dude, Base XP missions have zero to do with your grinds, commander xp, free xp, and credits. It literally changes nothing about what you actually do. Then, factor in all the credits, xp, free xp and commander xp missions we do get, and your premium time becomes invaluable.

 

Stopping your premium time over base xp missions is only going to hurt your grinds, not help them.

Base XP only help with some of the missions and daily grinds.  You still gain additional XP and credits using modifiers to increase your earning potential.  Premium is a modifier that significantly contributes to earning, especially for credits, which are always in short supply.
