Is it really the first time for you? Previously there were the optional squad size upgrades (removed guest race specific resources, so whoever cared to produce them for future activation wasted time and resources). There was also some recent (ok, not that recent) chapter with extremely expensive resources in its first quarter or so - they lowered the requirements and it was done long after its release.While I am glad that some people don't have to make the badges for the AW researches now that that requirement has been removed, I'm rather upset that I had to endure it. Guess those of us that finished Chap 18 ahead of the release of chapter 19 get the Chump Award for doing so.
This isn’t a critique (of Inno or even of you). Sometimes these adjustments are necessary. And I think it’s good they were done, even though I was hit by all three of them.
