Feedback regarding the new difficulty formula on Beta and EN servers has been overwhelmingly negative and players have provided extensive alternative options for consideration but have seemingly been ignored. Please provide transparency regarding how the tournament difficulty will be determined.
1. If expansions are included in the formula, I will NEVER buy another expansion.
2. If AW levels are included, I will focus only on AWs that help me and abandon all others.
3. If every research completed adds to the difficulty, I will stop all progression on the tech tree.
If all 3 compound upon each other, what incentive do I have to progress at all? And consequently, if others do likewise, how long will players retain interest in the game?
