I am suggesting the following changes.
summary: (short version)
option 1 (best option to get Loyalty and Iridium in one contract - no cooldown) RECOMMENDED
Only contracts for rank 3 , 6 , 9 , 12 and 15 should automatically feature Iridium bonus with regular loyalty vouchers, listed in one single contract.
Notification window will display all the rewards in one single tab.
Iridium contracts for rank 3 , 6 , 9 , 12 and 15 should be added/merged with regular contracts , which would mean that we still have 15 contracts instead of 20 per each subfaction.
There should be no separate or duplicate contracts of the same rank (currently rank 6).
Cooldown times for those contracts should get removed, if you’re a member of corporation.
No cooldown bonus applies to Loyalty/Iridium contracts, which means that you get Loyalty/Iridium reward at the same time, after you complete it.
Premium License does not affect Iridium bonuses.
option 2 (best option to get Iridium independent contracts - no cooldown for Iridium only**) ALTERNATIVE**
If you wish to keep Iridium contracts separate, as we have them now (rank 6), you only need to add rank 3, 9, 12 and 15 and match the requirements/descriptions from loyalty contracts.
This means that Iridium contracts (Win 1-3 PVP/PVE battles) will become obsolete and also a bit harder to complete.
Only contracts for rank 3 , 6 , 9 , 12 and 15 should automatically feature Iridium bonus.
Iridium contracts only give you Iridium bonuses and not Loyalty rewards at the same time, in one single notification window, since they are separate.
No cooldown bonus only applies to Iridium contracts. Loyalty rewards will keep the cooldown bonus, which means that you will have to wait from 1 to 18 hours to get them active again.
Premium License does not affect Iridium bonuses.
What changes then with option 1? (detailed)
You just get Loyalty and Iridium reward combined, listed under one single contract.
Iridium contracts have no different specific requirements, since they are now merged with the regular contracts.
Once they loyalty voucher contract/s is/are fulfilled, the Iridium contract/s will automatically complete as well.
Unifying (merging) regular loyalty voucher contracts with Iridium ones with no cooldown required also means faster and more easier access to mark III upgrades in general.
Rank 3 , 6 , 9 , 12 and 15 contracts applies for all subfaction’s factions.
Only 5 contracts would get affected, which means that you still have 15 contracts for each subfaction’s faction. Those have no cooldown period, but only for the members of corporation.
If you are not a member of any corporation, you will not receive any of those contracts in general, or they will be disabled. The contracts will be inactive/greyed out.
If you are a member of corporation, you will receive a reward, paid in full. However, 80% of the total Iridium goes to corporation fund automatically, so you only get 20%.
What changes then with option 2?
Everything is the same as with option 1 , but with some important differences.
Iridium contracts are separate from Loyalty contracts and have no cooldown, if you’re a member of corporation.
Loyalty contracts have regular and independent cooldown time after completion.
Cooldown time for regular contracts is from 1 to 18 hours.
Empire - Legion, Wardens: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15
Federation - Armada, Vanguard: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15
Jericho - Raid, Techs: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15
warning: This option is ONLY AVAILABLE, if you joined corporation, or if you founded one.
20% of Iridium stays with the owner of the deed, 80% goes to corporation fund automatically.
Rewards for those contracts: (5 affected only, 6 times total - one branch for each subfaction’s faction - total of 30)
full reward: 100% corporate membership share: 80%
rank 3: 10 Iridium (no cooldown) Corporate membership: 8 Iridium (no cooldown)
rank 6: 20 Iridium (no cooldown) Corporate membership: 16 Iridium (no cooldown)
rank 9: 30 Iridium (no cooldown) Corporate membership: 24 Iridium (no cooldown)
rank 12: 40 Iridium (no cooldown) Corporate membership: 32 Iridium (no cooldown)
rank 15: 50 Iridium (no cooldown) Corporate membership: 40 Iridium (no cooldown)
Only the results below count for the player.
These are the final numbers.
This Iridium is yours to keep.
final reward: 20% remains - your share
rank 3: 2 Iridium (no cooldown)
rank 6: 4 Iridium (no cooldown)
rank 9: 6 Iridium (no cooldown)
rank 12: 8 Iridium (no cooldown)
rank 15: 10 Iridium (no cooldown)
important emphasis: Cooldown times for Iridium/Loyalty contracts should get REMOVED/EXCLUDED , but only those mentioned contracts, if you prefer option 1.
Cooldown time/recharge duration for Iridium contracts ONLY stays active , if you are NOT a member , or the founder of corporation.
If you prefer option 2, add the rest of missing Iridium contracts, with the same requirements and keep them separate, as stated above.
