I can only report what I am hearing Mihai. People are struggling and some are giving up. Just because determined people can do it does not mean it is not a problem. Certainly, some find the challenge interesting, but, too many good players, imo, do not and that is the problem. I agree it needs to be higher than on a classic server, but, there is a fine margin and I believe that at the moment the level is a little too exacting. It is a question of balance, not of either or.
If a player gives up then we should listen to the reason that they give for doing so, surely?
And, Yes, we are on the same server.
