So, how long will it take you to get to level 250?
aka: how much grind for the Glasses, Pacifier etc.
Getting to lvl 250 will net you all the special rewards once, including the glasses in the end.
To simplify I assume 3 types of players:
Type A: Wants to progress as quick as possible.
Type B: Wants to progress, but also wants to deliver good results.
Type C: Wants to be perfect in accuracy (haha try that, with the current control questions).
My assumed stats for the types are:
Type A: 50 EP average, needs 10s for one cycle on average.
Type B: 75 EP average, needs 20s for one cycle on average.
Type C: 100 EP average, needs 30s for one cycle on average.
Reasoning: Type A will click as little as possible. Type B will be frustrated with unsolveable control questions and only click when totally obvious. Type C will put a lot of effort into getting even the most weird control questions right. Currently I’d say Type C is a hypothetical Type, because 30% of the control questions make absolutetly no sense.
Now for the juice, how long do they need to get the Glasses:
7 full Days and 10 Hours to get to Level 250. That is 178 hours and a bit. Or 22,25 full days of 8 hour job.
9 full Days and 22 Hours. That is 238 hours or 29,75 full days of 8 hour job.
11 full Days and 4 Hours. That is rougly 268 hours or 33,5 full days of 8 hour job.
Okay, what about other rewards you ask?
Reward :: Time it takes Type A / B / C
Suits (LVL 200): 115 hours / 153 hours / 173 hours
Enforcer BPC (LVL 150): 65 hours / 87 hours / 98 hours
Pacifier BPC (LVL 50): 8 hours / 10.5 hours / 12 hours
We all know #project-discovery is not to make us spacerich or anything. It makes sense. But this progression structure is just a joke.
TL;DR everyone who was afraid their Enforcer would be worthless can relax. Even if people decide not to care at all about the goals of Project Discovery (Type A) they’d still need to grind 65 hours with 5 clicks in 10 seconds or 117k mouseclicks to get it. (Which is still better than the required ~1 Million mouseclicks for a Type C player getting to LVL 250)
