RE: Game Economy, Rental Exploit, Incentives and the Future of Splinterlands
In my opinion, collection power cap for the leagues is at the root of the problem. I don't see any reason why shouldn't it be deleted entirely (change my mind). The system can self regulate, because eventually players with more cards will be in the top leagues.
I am in bronze and I have no incentive to play because I earn more DEC by renting out the few cards I have, and it is a tough decision if I should buy more cards to get into silver or just rent them out and stay in bronze forever.
Furthermore, you should take into account the disappearence of bots after the second update.
