The only problem i see with the so called over scouting is, when we're at lower chapters. I don't know how many rings scouted are needed to get 15 tournament provinces. I only do 10 every tournament for 5 rounds, which gives me 2100 points. So the only problem is the tournament costs. There's no limit to scouting. The only things there is, is that after 457 provinces, we don't get any expansions. I'm at 426 at the moment, so i will soon hit that point. I'm at the beginning of Constructs. There's only a problem if we in tournament do many provinces. So up to which ever ring gives those 10-15 provinces, it might be a good idea not go to far. But after that, it's only if we do many provinces in tournament it matters. EDIT: PS: Everyone thinking this thread starts a bit odd, is right. It has been taking out of context from another thread and put here by a moderator. And now of course it is missing there. It concerns the scouting quests in events. Especially the feedback on Summer Mermaids running now.
