The time token value for the upcoming Ship Token Riot appears to have decreased.  See screen captures for the "prior" and "upcoming" event stores below.

Total time tokens available decreased from 96 hours to 48 hours.  The intel required to collect all tokens remains constant at two million.

CM Chris, CM Lee: Please advise as to whether this is intended or not, and provide any color you can as to reasons.

Upcoming (5-Feb-2018):

    I'm totally discouraged to do any more riots. Maybe... just maybe the 165000 prize this time. If that's how it's going to be from now on, then I won't feel like doing it anymore. Pretty sure many players (who don't look at forums) will just drop it as soon as they see this nerf in the calendar.

    Wow that is a sneaky change

    Keeping the " (x2) " but replacing the actual tokens with tokens worth 50% of time.

    So now we get 50% of token time ****, the Intel remains at 2 million!

    I am assuming that the points payout from target fleets will also remains the same....

    @CM Lee
    @CM Chris

    Is this an error or oversight?

    I mean we already got a reduction in daily BA cut in half... Now this? While the Intel to farm remains the same.... 2 million

    Hey u never know.... :-)

    I ask of a potential error.. cuz one of the module token riots in early January had only 24 hours worth of tokens " (x1) " instead of " (x2) ".

    They did fix it back to 48 hrs or x2 in the next riot.

    Yeah I remember that but this is just clearly a pre-emptive nerf for T7.

    It actually makes a lot of sense. Are players still doing this with less reward?
    Yes? Great, lets keep it this way.
    No? "Oops, last week accidentally the wrong tokens have been put into riot, here, have your old riot back."

    Kix wants maximum time spent in game, maximum money spent in game with minimum reward given out, so it is in your hands how this will play out. Makes sense, yes?

    actually, maximum time spent in game isn't of any worth for them...thats just costs (cpu, power, cooling, bandwidth).
    the main kpi are coins sold and coins spend per player and day. and i think this kpi just went down the last months due to free refit-token.
    they need to make a living from this game, so i cannot blame them on making me pay.

    But giving out something for free and then reducing it without any notice and explaination is just **** up the customers....kixeye is acting like a elephant in a china shop. but the elephant is able to learn and would not repeat the mistake.

    Kixeye, the masters of pissing their customers off. I'm glad I didn't spend time making a fleet specifically for token riots :P

    Kix, our time in this game cost more than this bs prizes!
    Last time i spent around 1 hour non-stop farming with 3 auto-fleets to achieve top prize. Total rep time was ~17-18h.
    Now i will skip this ****.
    Enjoy this riot alone, kix ******.

    At face value this seems to be very disappointing. What I don't know is if point payouts remained unchanged. I also do know what built and fit times will be for the next factor. But if all else remains the same and we only get 2 instead of 4 days for 2 million, I don't know if I will be as motivated to do the entire event as often as I have. I guess I'm glad I took advantage of it as much as I did before this change.  :/

    This is what happens when noobs moan about build times and demand a refit bay. Kixeye will always produce balance, you don’t get something for nothing.

    If anything intel needed should be halved but as we all know kixeye don't give a hoot about their players.

    And where is the refit bay? , reduce the times of alien strike and now the token prizes, kix does not really want players of low or medium level.
