My biggest complaint is the "loss" of otherwise good bases. Some of these bases were favorites of ... well lots of people. We seem to have a repeat of a long running theme: Everyone wants to play on base X instead of bases A, B, and C so it throws off the larger map game. But instead of fixing bases A,B, and C so they are more fun, they instead mess with base X. When the changes are complete, sure less people play at X. But not because ABC are better. The game as a whole is less fun to play. So we continue on playing base ABC. Dev gets the impression they "solved" the base X problem when they didn't. If new content is needed, make new content. Don't wreck the old content just because it's the easier way to do it. I hope we aren't struggling from some Ego. Be willing to admit when a change isn't working and revert it. And don't beat yourself up about it or let it stop you from trying again.
