    So.... any chance of a "gold free" or "gold limited" masters qualification server next time you run a challenge like this? Then we could see who the real star players are? Or is there a reason why this isn't possible?


    Please don't get me wrong - I don't have an issue with the idea of purchasing gold. I understand the business model of in game purchases enabling "free to play" games to get the technical and player support that makes a game worth playing, and I happily purchase gold myself (I find playing without a plus account annoying!); but in the context of a skill based challenge, high gold expenditure makes a big difference to peoples' potential result.

    Stupid question - don't judge me! I'd like to play, just to be part of it. But I work (as do many) and have limited play time and. So a) is it even worth me signing up and b) am I going to drag my friends down with me?

    Shut my thumb in the door and now look at it!

    I'm playing the USA Rocky Mountain scenario, and just getting used to the up-grade. Nice to see the career engine in use at last!


    But (and I'm probably being really thick here...) I'm struggling to see who's station I am visiting when picking up bonuses for other players. Where is the player name hidden?
