Thanks, @I_like_pie - some interesting points!
That’s very true… but a wholesale closure of MW wasn’t on the cards at that point.
Multis is a problem, when they are 3 out of 45 players. However, a small percentage of multis in a much bigger player base isn’t that much of an issue; assuming they are operating independently.
I suppose the key question from me is around the short-term plan for the game. If it’s going to be an increasingly inward-looking game, where 40 or so players show each other how (relatively!!) good they are at the game, then it doesn’t hold much attraction for me.
Is there a desire to grow the game, and allow new players to join the community?
