The current credit rewards for contracts are the same as before the Big update, meaning that the credit values does not scale with the current build.
"Destroy 50 dreadnought - 1200 credits" is less than a normal income match for me and does not really motivate me to go the extra length to complete. The contract can sometimes be very tedious depending on your fleet and ship preference and again the reward for fulfilling a grindy contract, say destroy x enemies with a tac cruiser if you hate playing tac cruiser Is just bad, like really bad.
Will the rewards be scaled up in the future? Or even better, will the rewards scale per fleet you fulfill the contract with?
