That is true, sadly...You know what's exciting? Not having to make space for new AWs. Thanks for giving us garbage that I will never pollute my city with.
I do hope AW's gets a rethink, or something.
Some of them look fantastic, but they don't bring much to the table (for me), beyond that.
I wish AW's either:
A: Make it worth the space, so you have to choose between it or an Event building.
B: And/or, make it a choice of the same building (AKA, artwork), and you get to pick what it does/offers. (Maybe at every 10 levels?)
C: Or increase the freaking grid space of our city, so we can enjoy the artwork, even if the AW is lackluster. (Enar's Embassy is my nemesis with this)!
I love it for how it looks, but I hate that it's so huge & so meh. (I know the point was made about mana on demand). It is an outstanding point & it is giving me pause, to reconsider it...
Meanwhile, extra space in my city is so tempting & smexy!!!
Lovin' your post.
