Auto battling is not a option as there is no parameters for it other than attack the same location or players and thats going to annoy the hell out of players
The players are not showing a interest in CR because they are being farmed constantly so thats creating the issues of players not doing CR
Suggestions by players that we merge servers to put more opponents in CR, is not going to work as thats going to increase the number of players that do not do CR... and it also means that players are completing for the same titles in the merged servers which means less oppotunities for players to grow their characters
Cross server CR is coming.... thats part of why we opened the servers the way we did. and yes players complained because we did that and suggested that we stagger them, which we could do... and then have players complaining because there is too much of a gap between servers in cross server
auto battling in CR is problematic because players will get farmed and ask players to stop attacking them, players will say its not me, its the auto battle system doing it so I have no control over it ......and there is also the fact that the red tickets are valuable and hard to get so they require active game play.......
As for the stance that we need to reconsider making the game easier before players leave the event and the game..... ahhh its already happening, because players do not like being farmed in cross server by players they have no chance against and because its so hard for them to get points because of lack of players..... hence cross server is coming
