Players don’t mind the change and I agreed a fair matching game is the way to go. But making players to make purchase at first because they want to win in the game then later on remove the advantage of purchase is bait and switch. It’s your old matchmaking forces players whom wanna win to spend their money/Au on it.
Just because Pixonic found out the right matchmaking formula doesn’t mean player’s hard earned game gold/Au must all drains to the sink.
Are you gonna offer this “same currency with deduction buy back” to those players?
