Reading about the pending changes to the queue system earlier today struck a mental chord with me. Beyond the rewards, and lack of choice between ground and space, and my gut-level aversion, my first thought was “this change is really meant to be a behavioral change in the way I play the game.” Put aside for the moment that many long-time players make an implicit … Continue reading An Abundance of Queues and the Paradox of Choice
