@Versheenah, unfortunately, we cannot implement a lot of your suggestions. Our game isn't set up in a way that will let us send out polls to every new player, and some players would see it as inappropriate even if we could.
The truest experience of even odds is in Ranked PVP and Guild Wars, as I have said before. I have been as transparent as possible regarding our AI, RNG and any changes to them. The changes that we have implemented have made the game fairer in Ranked PVP and Guild Wars. While you might want the game to behave this way at all times, a large amount of players do not, as they feel this isn't a fun game experience. We need to take into account many different points of view when we make changes.
Yes, you can unlock difficulty levels as you level, but these are only to do with the opponent's stats. The game eases you in, as there is a lot that to learn when someone starts playing Gems of War for the first time.
