Instead of pushing out tower and dragon tiers so fast that ordinary folks can’t follow along what if one of those 6 month cycles was put on pause and we got something else?
New research and forge items. End game players would able to get points for breeding eggs and we have some new and interesting buffs. Defense stuff beyond Dark Flak?
Finally fix towers. End game players could recycle those archer towers. (Look, nobody cares if its 100 to 1 exchange ratio. Just get it done!) End game players could still get Fort points.
Make Divines useful during this period. Since there wouldn’t be new tiers, PG would have incentive to make all of the sigil dragons useful and interesting unlike the past junky dragons that really are nothing more than speed bumps to the real ones. Slyphen, Jarl, Dreth, etc.
Pipedeams all of it, but I think it would be a welcome change of pace.
PS (Edited to address mythics) Whatever seasonal mythics PG wanted to publish could have evo stones for the next tier, just not usable for 3 or 6 months. PG could really focus on making the game stable and fixing so many issues during this time.
