I just wanted to put these here because for one this suggestion got the most views out of all the ones posted.
And I still think this is a good idea.
Additionally, with the new influx of players, this should be taken into consideration. I believe this is the only way to keep a constant player base, seeing as most of the community simply does not have the time they used to. It is healthy for all of us and will give many people leverage when it comes to work/school. Not only this but reducing the amount needed to grind for this game I believe is vital to see it either grow or stay alive.
