When this next Update lands, please don't REMOVE any characters from Shipments. If you add an additional row of new characters to give the older players some new goals, that's a fantastic win-win.
But as a newer player, I worry about the additional gulf that would open up if the character I was farming suddenly became unfarmable from Shipments. It's enough of a disadvantage being behind due to finding this game later than others; to be unABLE to catch up would crush my interest pretty quickly.
That's all, I'm having fun and look forward to continuing, I just hope the Update focuses on being a positive addition and doesn't do anything to hinder or deprive players!
