This is a sensitive situation as there's no "easy way out". On one end, yeah, the rich get richer. ArcanePiranha has more XP than Australia has predators. At the same time, I'm sure ArcanineParasect doesn't want to regrind that either. [hr] Here's what I see as the cons to sharing (by which I mean, shit you earn now goes towards V2, and what you earn on V2 comes back to V1): 1) Less motivation to keep playing if you already have a ton of rewards. This can be mitigated by adding new rewards. =O 2) Rich get richer. 3) Easy for hackers to claim they played the other version. (a bullshit, cop-out reason but I'm adding it so you can't) [hr] Here's the much heavier list of pros: 1) Those of us who have 30k xp after nearly two years of playing and gain xp at the speed of smell don't really want to have to do that again. In addition, crazy people like ArborealPanini don't want to regrind their six million pesos. 2) People who discover V2 as their first SC2 NOTD game can go back and play V1 and not feel like they are wasting their time. As it is, once V2 comes out there's a good chance V1 will fall into obscurity. That doesn't have to happen if we pull V2 off right. 3) It's a much needed olive branch to our already embattled new players. To our new players, 1000 xp is a chore and I've seen newbies ragequit NOTD altogether because they lost their 5000 xp bank. [hr] There's a third option, as well. If, for whatever reason, you absolutely refuse to allow shared banks, we could always "pull a BioWare." If nothing else, if you have a notdbank5, you can be given some sort of bonus gravy on your first game. I stand by being allowed to share banks but, being so far from urgency, we have plenty of time to discuss it.
