In the past (late 2011 - mid 2012), the average NOTD game time was about 75-90 minutes for completion. The speed bonus was set at 3600 game time seconds then (about 50 minutes real life time). The speed bonus was designed to stretch teams to perform at 110% capacity - requiring more micro, making trade offs in recon/missions and better team coordination. Today, the average NOTD game time is about 45-60 minutes for completion. This is partly because players are better and mainly because we've redesigned to improve gameplay flow and incentivize faster games. We've hit our goal here in getting the average game time to where we want it to be. All this while, the speed bonus time has remain unchanged. We've heard from some players that getting speed bonus has been relatively easier in the past few months - even in pubs. With that, the speed bonus time will likely need to be brought down a bit from the current 3600 game time seconds. I'm proposing a 10% reduction to 3,240 game time seconds (about 45 minutes real life time). Any violent objections?
