I think it is you who is not reading what I say... I never said we should play for the heck of it.Oh, I see what you are saying, let's just play for the heck of it and not ask anything better, because chances are that the changes will bring us only everything worse? I believe that as experienced players we should tell Inno what should be improved in the game. Only a few of FSs go for golden trophies and most of players stir clear of it. Spire should be an important part of this game and most of players don't want to hear anything about it because of their bad experience there. That is why, as players who finish it every week and can afford it, we should tell what can be improved to make other players return to Spire.
I say the rewards ARE MORE THAN GOOD ENOUGH ALREADY
More rewards will imbalance the game more and will then have to be nerfed again.
Getting more people to play the spire is a good idea from a balancing point of view though. Everyone who doesn´t play the spire now is falling behind, because they are missing out on big rewards every week. More rewards will increase the imbalance between players and non players, so unless you can achieve 100% participation (which of course is impossible) more rewards will not increase balance.
So participation has to be increased in other ways instead. That is a topic I would be very interested in discussing.
My first point would be to create a positive attitude towards the spire on all forums, FB pages etc. If everyone pointed out how good the rewards are instead of constantly complaining about how difficult it is, much more people would get interested I think.
Another point could be more help with actually playing, like tutorials etc, that should be linked to in the spire ingame.
