Absolutely, I agree, it does benefit the community as a whole and I also enjoy stuff like this. I have logged tables of retreats and times it took to get a stun board or whatever.
My comment was misunderstood I fear - it is sad that we as a community think that what the devs have done requires this.
I would say I would have hoped for better communication and openness between community and game developer especially at this early stage. Transparancy.
Instead we are struggling to understand where this game is going and why we can’t really play it anymore and we interpret an allusion @Salty made endlessly because we just don’t get why the game was culled quite like this and we turn to analyze other parts of the game becuase a basic communities trust was undermined.
So, sad state of affairs.
I do not think it is a bad idea to check @Sibelios , just sad that we think it is time well spent or time well invested. Should have just been a patch note - we also adjusted the start board and the shop cause we think it was necessary. Whatever.
