This is good update , will help newer accounts to join the game.
Oldies should really stop complaining , its not fun if there are only 10 people fighting.
high STR accounts can fight in 4 5 terrains now , while low STRs can only fight in 1 or 2 at most
I hope admins make this permanent
Sorry friend, but I complain since I don't understand how communism affected this world so much that so many people nowadays think that equity would be giving anyone the same despite of his commitment. Equity is giving everyone equal chances to show commitment and make the difference. The day that commitment won't be important anymore, we'll see the true "Mayhem".
More on the topic: Plato won't make permanent a change that will put his best customers at the same level of people who struggled a lot less than them to be as much important. Since many would permanently abandon the game, and all of them would permanently stop buying.
And anyway the game would go crazy. Just imagine Serbia suggesting to its players to choose just some terrains, since the CP will use them to attack Croatia. The day after Thailand will choose different terrains (the same that have been chosen from Croatia) and airstrike Serbia that won't have enough influence to defend their regions, since the terrains are decided from the attacker. So, while Croatia is being wiped from Serbia, Serbia would be wiped from Thailand. Without any particular effort, I'd say. And should a country decide to ask their players to spread their points all among the skills, to be equally weak in all the terrains? xD Come on! And what is funny in watching every battle going on with 95% domination on the attacking side, everytime? Is that even playing?
Let's try to avoid the clash of the game: modus in rebus
Mayhem can be great to help newer players to make the difference in some rounds, but if it became the standard, the chaos would make all of the wars totally senseless, and noone would benefit with it. Please read my previous post and think of a different balance.
