Umm I hate to ask, but what exactly do they get to keep? I'm pretty sure the "for fun" bit was what the Dev was striving for. Just a stab in the dark though really."The 'for fun' and fanboys aren't playing for keeps the same way that the hardcore players are."
If what you say is true then apparently those players should be the most patient since they have the most to gain, err I mean keep.
I assume this Forum is regularly archived because if some of the suggestions asked for get implemented, due to vocal noise, it will be good to be able to go back and see what the thoughts of the time were when the new whines begin. It is a vicious loop really.
You know the old addage. "You can Please some..." yada yada yada!
