I welcome all these new mechanics and alternatives to make the game more diverse and entertaining, but Elvenar has been quite unfair recently to the people who like me, rely on negotiations instead of fights to play. The phoenix event introduced a game changer building with the Fire one, which instantainely increased the tournaments average scores in a drastic manner. But for the people who doesn't fight there wasn't a comparable phoenix for their playstyle, lets say, a Green phoenix that decreased the negotiations costs -30% -let alone -50%- for 10 hours, instead we were given the aureate one that gives you a small handful of goods for a couple of hours in which you have to be highly dependant because you only have a margin of 29:59 minutes to reutilise your factories at least once, in contrast with the vast margin of time to use that gives the fire phoenix. Now we have the Spire of Eternity that adds a nice new individual side of the game, but again I struggle with the negotiations limitations in those encounters which negotiation is not enabled. I dont mind to pay a ridiculously high amount of goods if its needed, its just that I dont have the possibility to do it.
