Looks like they improved a LOT of things since when I last played. I might actually have to jump back in and see what's up.

So it supposedly dropped.  But I completed daily step and no DT - so not working.

The release notes noted that each daily stage was 25DT - nope.

OK, so I am clear - the details I read indicated that if I completed one of the daily requirements - 25DT.  Like kill 10 LBM.  That is not working.

As this has pissed me off - back to Defiance! (and the bullet sponge)

So seriously - am I way off?

The info I read indicated that each of the daily and weekly stages would provide a DT reward (25/100).  What I am missing?

That does seem weird. I'll try getting a weekly cache here soon and see what happens with me.

OK I think I knew this but - another brain fade for me

The daily assignment has 4 parts, each part can provide 25 DT (Combat assignment, Crafting assignment, Dark Zone Assignment, Survival assignment.
The Weekly assignment has 3 parts and each part has multiple steps - Weekly assignment, survival assignment, underground assignment.

I had just finished a part of the weekly assignment, not all 4 parts.

Anyway, I have 1200+DT now still trying to figure out what I want to optimize next.
