ofc after recent situation, i have new relatable words but listen,
the problem which needs to be target Nr.1 - encourage new players to contest and slow down a bit ancient farm not in LoT so you really want win CS for PvE damage boost.
remove cc4 anc drop, low drop in cc5 ( max 5% ),
but about new player encouragement, i thought about it for a while, but the problem is there is still ways to abuse it ( cant attack golds if more than XX PvE points, level, etc. ).
after 8 - 10 weeks, when some players got bored, some shit happens. every server the same story.
we need new players and tell them - try, contest GGD ( for example ), some synergy and you can do it...
otherwise game becomes unattractive for players who started later ...
