We are near the end of the first season after a major change to how leagues work. The members of this forum have been pretty vocal that it was not a great change.
How does it stand up outside this forum? Are there any surveys of the broader player base?
Am I right in generally summarizing grievances as it being too expensive (resources and cash) to be competitive and as such rewards being less generous than in the past.
I’ve been thinking about what I would do if I had a magic wand to change the league. All I really can come up with is to remove the competitive aspect, and basically treat it as a very long milestone like experience that rewards active players.
I recognize that removing the competition is really a reversal of the core changes meant to encourage competition, especially at the top ends.
I don’t really know how to reconcile the gulf between letting the top players wail on each other and giving the much larger “average” player base a chance to grab some nice rewards.
