Tbh the video is best, but if you aren’t able to listen to it:
At this point in time, there is zero need for the lower leagues. Gold 2 and down is a holding cell for ghosts of teams that used to be. Players that are in these leagues can’t attack a lot of the other players because the bases are inactive.
It used to be that these leagues were great for new members learning the basics of the game. However, when Atlas became platinum and above, atlas teams became higher in demand. Lower leagues began starving for recruits. At this point in time, Gold 1 and maybe Gold 2 are the only slightly active lower leagues.
The teams who stand a shot of making it out of these lower leagues as a new team are those who start off as a group with a set plan in mind, and even then they have to start off in bronze.
I propose that at the end of the current Atlas season, Gold 2 and below are wiped from the game’s existence. As stated, they currently serve no purpose other than a holding cell for dead teams. At this time, every team left in game should be given Atlas access. Get rid of the have/have not effect in the lower leagues.
Before, it was said that the whole game couldn’t have Atlas access because it would overload the system. While that is probably true, cutting the dead weight will remove almost 10, 000 dead and inactive teams, leaving only about 400 teams that still need it. Let Gold 1, at most Gold 2 become the new starting point for teams. Then they don’t have to wander through a wasteland in order to get anywhere meaningful.
That’s right. We are talking about almost 10k teams that are just taking up space and have maybe 15 people at the most. Trim the fat and give Atlas to the rest of the meat. It is a part of the game that is invaluable to any team wanting to get new players and any player that wants to get better.
That’s the summary of the video without my beautiful voice.
