It’s 2020, and I’m still finding misinformation online—posted within the past year!
Maybe things changed with the GotY release, and I’ve not played this far in many years, but my recollection tells there are SHORT and LONG challenges, and only the SHORT challenge offers meaningful reward in the form of an additional skill point. I remember there is nothing to be gained from doing the LONG challenge, beyond an “achievement” of some kind—that it is so long and difficult as to be a waste of time.
People are still posting that you can get a skill point for the LONG challenge, ans that you can get four skill points altogether; two in PT 1 and two in PT2. I think those posts are trolling—but maybe something changed with GotY.
SO WHAT IS THE ACTUAL DEAL?
Very confused by the wiki as well: It’s “mechanics” section is vague to the point of near worthlessness, not mentioning how to start the actual missions, how many rounds and waves there are, or the reward, either. Why is the wiki so vague?
As always, thanks for your time and assistance!
