It's interesting to monitor the effects of changes. Since Plarium exuberantly reinforced the Jotun troops during SH Siege (tower 5 and up) and since the last legendary checkpoint (the one with the rune coins) during cvc is far out of reach at Asgard level, there is not a single clan in my kingdom that still does thier SH Siege during cvc. And this kingdom is strong, never loses fury or kvk.
LOL. Good idea Plarium!
Why don't you raise the cost of seasonal items another bit more. Nobody will bother any more.
