What strikes me is that we receive less and less prowess after an attack on Berimond. Also, as a player you have to buy more and more rubies, if you want to participate somewhat with the "big players". This means that the players who do not have a large income and can therefore spend little, can absolutely not participate in the race to the top.
Conversely, we can say that GGE is actually killing her own game, since players will drop out because there is hardly any challenge left in the game. While, if we have to believe the surveys ..., GGE wants to offer equal opportunities to everyone, so that there is a lot of challenge in the game.
or ... is it me, am I wrong? I have been playing the game for over 8 years ...., but I really don't see that GGE is listening to players, especially to the experienced players.
