No facts, I am for a game of equal footing, I am just agains your change unless conditions are met.
I am not elitist in that regard. but I am against change for a tiny part without looking at the whole picture.
One tiny portion of players having 3 or more full Simia Sapiens that only require 3 pet foods, while "the whole picture" of players don´t even have one of them is not a "equal footing".
We players that don´t posses the amount of brown bears you´ve got are not a "tiny" part, we´re the majority my friend.
Your vieuw is too narrow. you only look at 1 single thing inside the tournament imbalance and ignore all other imbalances.
I was one of the main players that complained until languishment the no welcome tourney changes, I even got 2 bans in this forum by that exact reason, I absolutely know how these changes affected players like me and you.
In this manner I exposed you some solutions, in which you´ll be able to still have your OP B.Bears, one would be as simple as InnoGames letting players like myself to craft new brown bear bases, with a limit to them, we´ll all have ( with money involved or not) the possibility to get the amount you´ve got and none will touch your bears imba stackability.
All will win with this. But you didn´t accept it. Making the tournament part of this game tedious, bored, discouraged and unfair for the vast majority of players as it is now, and just competitive and enjoyed by some.
The fact is a chapter 18 account cannot compete in the tournaments right now
In my world there are several players competing in the top 10 that now are in the 18th chapter, one of them is always between the first 3... And he´s an exceptional player and also a friend of mine, but he´s there because he´s got 2 fire phoenix and several brown bears. The same for many of the top players.
And please read the prior as an anecdotic and isolated case in my world, to have a final conclusion I should gather all the results in every world inside elvenar since 2019 (I could do it, when I do have more free time)... But my assertion is not far from the reality.
You only seem to willing to fix your problem and want to ignore the others,
As long as you do not look at the whole picture, the whole balance bla bla argument becomes mood.
Blaming others and victimizing talking are not arguments tho.
And I answered you with plenty explanations, figures, and solution ways with respect of your imba brown bear stackability and the need you (and ME and all players in this game) seems to have with respect of the penalty in tournament/Spire for every research, expansion and AW upgrade. And still the players with multiple brown bears will have a huge advantage over players that don´t posses them.
To continue with the response....
