On Reddit, user LicensetoIll revealed that “ farmers are making us lose planets “. He also highlighted how leveling up, collecting samples, or just getting rich quick can negatively impact democracy and Super Earth.

Other players stressed that the post and public service announcement “won't change people's minds.” They went on to talk about how developers could encourage players to complete full ops: “The only way to make campaigns successful is to give players worthwhile rewards. If awarded major orders, special armor, medals or samples. More people would focus on order and that would compensate the farmers.”
