      another silver sink but affect normal players not mega alliances, sad! while mega guilds/alliances make tons of silver from every asset in game u guys nerfing normal players, whats next buy lp,focus,fame???
      No nerf they can introduce will ever affect vets and alliances in any meaningful way, as they have more money / gold than they need anyway.

      So in the end, all money sinks will most likely "hurt" the normal player more, which is intended, as then the more casual people will have stronger incentives to buy gold with real cash.
      Once the pandemic is under control and the user numbers dwindle, Stillfront will push the game into a direction that generates more income. That might be surprise boxes, more money sinks, premium packages, etc. Who knows.

      Enjiy the game while it still is in an ok state.

      I'll hold to earlier statements, I do not believe SBI has any goddamn clue on how to properly manage an in-game economy that is entirely reliant on real world purchases. Their entire objective now is not to give players an enjoyable experience, but to increase their own profit margins. They seem to alienate a certain group of players every single update, its either HCE players, or crafters that get the end of the stick. You're really buffing corrupted's again and again? Making sure the streamers that bring in revenue for you get handsomely rewarded. And paying for it by taking away potential silver from crafters, or bm resellers, and from new players now having to pay significantly more for auto respec. Come on guys, who is making these decisions? Hire an impartial economist or let the goddamn sandbox actually play out. I'm sick of these updates where you're trying to fix the economy when its clear nobody who works at SBI knows how to properly influence economic trends and maintain economic stability.

      One of the best patches ever.
      No more riding to Black market, just pick the silver from the ground.
      Corrupted nerfs (Black Market, Tomes, rats) hit hard.
      Try to fix the reset meta soon and it will be ok.

      Way to go SBI.
