Well perhaps not you guys but the Japanese programmers could, you know, make it worth while to actually play alteil and not just mirage master. I don't know how often I see old friends sign on to my friends list and I'm like "hey so and so is back" then I look and it tells me their playing mirage master. Well they got to get that out of the way but then they'll play right? Then I look again, and they've signed off.
With only the best of the best players being rewarded for playing in actual alteil, for the vast majority of players it seems the only area of the game worth playing currently is mirage master. If there were actual rewards for playing alteil itself, even if your losing more then your winning, we might see alot of these ex-alteil players, now mirage master exclusive players, return to Folrart. And if the arena was filled with more players who previously were getting their butts handed to them every game, now these players with weaker decks or weaker skills have a higher chance of actually playing each other and thus getting more wins and perhaps enjoying the game more.
I mean I've won FAR more then I've lost, my record is still pretty decent, but even I admit that when I run into a string of players whose decks are clearly superior to mine and I get repeatedly trounced the feeling of "wow I just wasted an hour of my life for nothing" is pretty depressing. Some times I shrug it off but some nights I find myself wishing I'd just played my game of mirage master and called it a night.
However if you still got something significant just for playing, even if your losing, the feeling might not be quite as severe. Heck if they don't want to increase the amount of gran thats given out each week then try taking it away from mirage master, maybe cap the amount of gran you can get from mirage master at 10 and make an extra 10 gran available each day for playing alteil itself (maybe a gran per game played, max 10 per day)
So to sum up:
We have enough players who are level 10+, thats not the problem, the problem is for too many of them there's no motivation to play alteil itself when it likely will give them no rewards but mirage master will.
