    I don't think there ever has been an announcement for squad size rebalancing, only that it has been brought up as an issue.

    Back in the Christmas Q&A 12/10/18 at 26:00 marker, "Ivan asks 'if we are considering any changes to the tournaments to make sure that high level players who have all optional squad size upgrade technologies unlocked aren't being penalized. Can we share anything on the plans?' Can we share anything on the plans? It's a bit like... We are looking for solutions, we have found a few, we just need to pick one that will fit; we are looking at other improvements for tournaments as well... we hope we can deliver for the future as well, there will be restoration spells, lots of them in tournaments."

    the squad size problem is a tough one, i don't see how they can compensate for the players who did all the optional squad size upgrades without creating a whole new set of complaints .. and just reading them saying they are looking at other improvements sends a shiver of fear down my spine

    beta test to start again with RR spells to stand alone on function vs trading out blueprints for them .. won in tournament chests 4,6,8,9,10 at 1 per square upgrade ability on event buildings...seems reasonable
    edit add...the only addition i would suggest is a crafting function that allows players with stockpiles of BP to disenchant them for use on other items and then the what do i do with 50 extra bp is also solved
    then if you have players in a fellowship who want to slow play in tournaments you just boot out and get motivated members

    I like what they're doing... I kind of do feel bad for those who have ample amounts of BP's sitting around.
    My opinion, get some Wishing Wells, and then get some Magic Buildings! Or... spend some $ :rolleyes:

    That was a somewhat recent (Dec, I think) addition in preparation for the restoration spell.

    It was added on Beta back then. It was not on any of my event buildings til very recently either, so it was probably added with the January 28th update to version 1.71.5.

    ^ Great!

    Even if I was pleased with the previous change, of keeping BP's. I was wondering; if someone has all Magic Buildings already, and fully upgraded, why not allow them to do something else with Bp's. Instead of gathering dust for no reason, let them convert to Bp's to upgrade Event only buildings (and/or MA).

    I sure don't want to do that. Especially now that the new Guest Race is in Beta :D

    lol just looked at the beta thread what a shizle show going on with rr/bp/10chests/conversion ratios/no conversions hahaha this is the mess that happens when programmers and developers promise you a fix after they nerf the game silly
    but
    if the conversions are not 1 bp or whatever they become to 1 magic building upgrade i'm out
    if they keep bp's for magic buildings and then do RR spells for event buildings that's ok by me as i wasn't nerfed and i am not in beta where whatever happens is what a beta player signed up for to test for live

    They buffed event buildings... significantly. The set buildings are far more efficient than the Magic Residence + Magic Workshop + Manufactory. And then consider the mana/seed generation. For just three blueprints per tournament I could keep my four frost carved trees current which on its own is all the mana production I will probably need.

    Which would you rather have: RRs enough to cover a certain size; or have the event buildings take up half the space for the same production, and give out only half the RRs as before. The latter is what Inno did, and is vastly superior to the former which the Beta posters keep on trying to bring Inno back to.

    offering me a choice that dosn't exist after my answer is in the post above is just fishing for useless posts

    Huh? The false claim that buildings on the whole have been significantly nerfed since the RRs were initially announced is totally off track.

    The option you were presented is one where option B is better than option A in every way. Inno pursued option B, but originally promised A. This is what the Beta posters have a hard time understanding.

    That's not what hvariidh said, though.
    "this is the mess that happens when programmers and developers promise you a fix after they nerf the game silly"​
    makes no mention of "since the RRs were announced." As for the level of silly in the nerf, one of the cities I abandoned was just entering the dwarf chapter and suddenly had negative 6,000 population, which they assured us needed to be done to implement Blueprints.
