Positron has stated that the entire base system is being looked at.
"Two of the biggest complaints we see about the base system is “Stuff is too expensive” and “It takes us too long to get a base that does anything useful.” Statesman and I have looked closely at the data. We have looked at various Supergroup sizes and how they have been earning Prestige since CoV launched. One thing became clear, and that was that players were not earning Prestige at the rate that we had expected them to."
" In regards to Rent: This is one of the items we are looking at closely this week. The "glass ceiling" was a design decision to prompt SGs into recruiting more members to get past it. It's fairly obvious (and has been for months) that you all universally hate the idea."
This is good news for groups like us that are about having fun and enjoying the game, and not just inviting people purely for prestige earning. News as it comes down the pipe can be found here on our Forums, as well as on the main CoH forums.
