The soft cap is bad system. (Criticism)

The idea of the cap is to make sure that people who play 24/7 don't rush so far ahead of the average player that people feel the way Schedd does now-- that he's been left behind and can't catch up.

Sure, but I don’t think it works. And it’s unneccesary. Let those people max out as quickly as they want, and then the rest of us can catch up as quickly as I want.

Right now, the system is even more rewarding to players that can play 24/7. Players that can’t get screwed, and it’s even harder to catch up than it was before.

Maybe I’m too cynical, but in my eyes, the sole reason for the soft cap is to prevent streamers, the folks that determine the narrative surrounding the game, from doing everything within a week or two and then bitching that there’s nothing to do. I guess it accomplishes that goal, at the expense of the rest of us.
