After several patch, players keep decreasing. It's obvious that fixing balance won't bring players back. adding contents won't make big difference.
Core game play need to be changed.
- make it less cheesy and spammy. : reduce income rate. reduce population cap.
- remove weird and complicated systems : power core, escalation phase should be gone.
- less meat grinder : Elites, AOE skills should be toned down more.
- remove MOBA maps
I truly think this is only way to save the game. If core game play don't change, it's doomed.
