I sort of anticipated that as a follow up question. I should have included it in my post, but I was tired of editing.
I can let a lower powered player in instead of the alts but I feel that’s a little unfair to them (and not much fun) because they would have to not participate in wars vs the top 3 or 4 guilds that we face. And since we’re ranked so high, we get each other frequently. Why can’t they participate? Because the lines they face would be unbeatable for them. That’s how per blue has made it, not me. That’s why I am completely in favor of a catch up mechanism for lower spenders. That’s why I am absolutely furious by the o7 grind, it just continues to increase the gap. I’d love to have a larger pool to pull from, trust me.
