'Mastery rewards and ranking stats are not available for this playlist.'
I'm guessing that SongPop doesn't have logs on stats and rankings for 'old' mastered playlists and why there are no badges for them. Understandable, it all began back with Songpop 1, things were more simple then. Funny, it seems now we have a kind of playlists BC and playlists AD, considering the introduction of mastery rewards.
Players are now motivated to buy, play, master new playlists and win new badges. Which is kinda OK, but at the same time, I feel kind of a discouragement towards these 'old' playlists.
My suggestion: anyone who has mastered playlists before badges, SongPop should award with a badge by default, retroactively. No rankings, just one badge appropriate with the theme/genre/decade. Or, maybe even more generous, provide a choice between two badges. Example: mastered 90s alternative? Choose between rock badge and 90s badge. Best basslines? Choose between rock badge and mixtape badge. Signature songs? Pop badge or top hits badge. And so on. One star badge, nothing fancy.
As for players who are yet to master these 'old' playlists, set no rankings, just display one badge to win (or choice between two of them). And leave prices at 399 and 249. Comment me wrong, but I guess this would certainly bring more diversity and motivate new players to buy and play old playlists.
