Temporary Workaround for No EXP Glitch
I found a workaround to the exp/reward issue, sort of. Look for planets with a lower player count. The majority of players are focusing on the major order planet.
Which is the one that primarily is not recording rewards properly. Bot planets or bug planets that are not part of the major order work better.
I have absolutely no issues finding matches, getting earned exp., or rewards when fighting automatons.
If anyone finds other or better solutions feel free to comment.
