I think the biggest problem is that royal lands territories suddeny becomes the most rewarding territories to own, which follows a reslly weird line of design choices lately.
Reward from a royal terri: 384
Reward from a anglia terri. 408
Neglible difference in reward, however royal fights are done in t6 gear and blackzone gvg’s are fone in 8.1/8.2 gear.
The cost if fighting in blackzone is 10 times more, but reward is the same.
