# 1 Flatten the World
07-19-2010, 06:58 AM
I humbly submit that to alleviate the sparseness of players in some Fleet Actions and PvP tiers, we should flatten the world. That is, use the existent squad technology to adjust the level of all players that enter a given Fleet Action or PvP queue to some target level and allow them to all play together. By eliminating tiers and level banding, this would increase the population in these instances across the board as well as add a new and interesting dynamic in the diversity of ships and abilities that would be brought to the fight.

If there's concern that the contribution of players level adjusted up or down by a large amount would be skewed, you might consider boosting or penalizing player contributing based on real level vs. target level, but this is an exercise for the designer.

Thanks for you time.
