You’re having a -very- hard time appropriately measuring the importance of two groups…
“I’m the one guy who has 10,000 hours invested, and I don’t like the fact that these other FIVE share the same rank as me with only 5,000!..”
“We’re the five-hundred players that feel we should have a max rank after investing a thousand hours…”
Yes, DEFINITELY make sure that 0.001% is satisfied… No…
“But what about those five people that feel cheated out of all their time!”
Who cares… It’s the 0.001% of the community… and they are literally your biggest fans… Better tend to that other 99.999% that’s not happy with the current situation.
