This new system screwed Everyone that isn't Bc, has massively over priced big allies & a hoard of charms stacked up. Realistically, it cuts the value of charms unless you have a ton of Bfa to match it. So, how do you get a ton of Bfa? By dropping a few paychecks hitting premium ebs. Then you can only hope other players don't take your newly bought allies before you can massively over priced them to protect your Bfa/charm bonus. Huge bc players with tons of Bfa & charms stay pratically untouchable as they already were. Smaller players relying on charms as Bfa is finiky at best & bigger players snatching the best allies. Just got the equivalent of a drive by prostate exam. Devs make it sound like stripping lb is a easy feat. After you hit bc, you litteraly have 2 things to do with gold. Bank it or invest in allies. This is the literal equivalent of being the smaller sibling, & smacking your older/bigger sibling. They hit back & guess what, it's going to hurt you massively more then you did to them. I'd honestly wager, most lb have a huge surplus of gold in bars. Just in case the day comes that they are stripped. So, you try & they rebuild rather quickly & the retaliation comes. Who suffers more? The bc Account that cashed in a few bars & is back where they were or you. The soon to be victim, they strip you & chances are you don't have the gold set aside to get back up like they do.
