Awesome changes guys - thank you for listening to the community and striking a balance. This will make running with Powerups much less daunting, and more fun, regardless of song difficulty.
I dare-say this will actually cause a little glut of coins once you throw in the facebook goals, but I'd be lynched by everyone else here if I did, so I'll shut up.
This will mean a total end to the grinding. Biggest loss per song seems to be 150 (unless you're really bad at the game). Usually, playing a song would lose you 50 coins (assuming the usual result over all the songs played by everyone is 5 stars). One 1000 coin goal completed lets you play 20 songs.
The Score Wars payout can easily be farmed by two people working together to get a ton of coins. Even if you don't have facebook you can farm the score wars for an easy 900 (no power-ups, 4 stars). My conclusion is that people are going to start amassing a crapload of coins.

just played 2 songs in a row, gold stars on both, and i only got 300 coins for each? (well 600 for first time play but yeah)
didnt start up the game till after this thread started.
I wish the Rock Band World Facebook app worked in Safari and, especially, on iPad/iPhone. Any plans to fix that? Also I really wish I could see important details like progress on goals from within the game. Weird that you can't.
