Here is a new idea I thought I would entertain here. I was on the kick about what to do with 1* trainers that are still available without being able to convert them to trainers since the 25.0 update.
The crux of that thought was that they took away the ability to convert food and survivors alone into level up XP. Most of y’all just came out wanted to drop the idea of 1* all together, fine
how about this then allow the workshop to craft gloves and shirts with food and wood. There seems to be consensus that gloves and shirts are often in short supply and now without 1* its only going to get worse. So allow a way to convert extra resources into something that helps generate 2* trainers.
