1 Exactly that is the IDEA.
Creating something new to fix underlying issues that drove people away in the first place
Editing stats and the like wont address the issues that make the game frustrating for new players and in turn causes the abysmal player retention rate this game has like low level players being matched vs high level admirals with maxed ranked ships or the frustration of renown grind for a "narrative" that dosn't exist
new players get +100 renowns more for battle.
And if people want to play "equal" there is ranked.
So the Idea is, "ranked is pretty dead" , so we can use that "ranked mode" for events.
Equal footing events game mod ? Like 2000 points battles, but all ships are without upgrades and abilities ?
And the upgraded ships you do usually use are locked ?
Yet again its easy to make and people could respond about balance and so on buy such event, so the next one is better balanced.
So we have a fun mode and people play ranked again, for example to have 2000 points battle.
