The biggest problem is that it seems that their metrics simply tell them "people aren't playing these, we should get people to play these by nerfing STF Dil and increasing dil rewards here."

It feels like Cryptic only ever looks at one half of the problem with any particular system or piece of content when another large glaring issue is either ignored or goes unnoticed.
