I think the important thing for me is sustainability and that like the mentioned the value of the rewards you receive will relatively be the same.
It is a hard decision to make but I think they're trying hard to carry everyone along. It ain't easy taking management decisions especially when a lot hings on the reaction of players.
We are earning for playing and I think that in itself is great. We just have to wait and see how things pan out.
I think the game is evolving for the better and for future expansion which to me is important too.
