In my personal opinion, a new region should be available to all and fairly used by all. With such a thing needing a lot of dev time to produce it would be a shame if only a certain group of players could use it to its full extent.
(Also there are other folks who are denied certain game advantages in my opinion but that is all I will say- don't want this thread going off topic)
So how would you suggest thie issue "equal opportunity" of access to be addressed if we can't talk about it when any change is proposed ?
I don't see how anything suggested made anything "unavailable" to all ... any more than currently exists. RThe same could be accomplished by placing the features in any region.
