Faction VP rewards going down? (Android)

On two occasions the listed (and received) VP rewards on faction missions for this event have gone down for me. Right after I started making 2750 VP a mission it dropped to 2250, and then a little later it dropped to 1800. I've since crawled back up to 2250, but I've never seen this before and I'm pretty sure it's a bug.

There's not much I can offer in terms of repro steps, unfortunately:
  • Android (Pixel 3)
  • 4 Shuttles
  • On a lark, I decided to open 5 missions of each faction from the get go to see what would happen. All 15 were successful, and the next batch I opened were all 3 hour missions. (I can't remember the VP cost, but presumably 1200).
  • It's probably just RNG, but I've had atrocious luck on this event, with a number of 75%+ successes failing. Sometimes your luck is just bad, last Faction event I had incredibly good luck. So I don't think this matters, but I figure with so little to go on I might as well mention everything that's stood out.

I'm not looking for recompense. I'm on track for B-4's gold outfit, which is all I really want. And it's taken minimal extra effort on my part. I just want to report the problem.

  • If too many of your shuttles fail, the difficulty of the missions (and in consequence the VP reward level) will decrease. Maybe this is what happened?

    Also, if you open a shuttle transmission without sending it, that transmission remains at the VP level you were at (say 1200) until you use it or it expires. So if you send a bunch more missions, improve your VP/mission up to 3500, that old one is still going to be 1200 even if you send it after the higher ones came back successful. Could this be what happened to you?

    This must be what happened. Looking back at the wiki more carefully, I'd missed that right before the table.
