They could have balanced it way better back then, I personally think it all got ruined when the person in charge of the sales was new and he had no clue what he was putting up for the very first perm items.
Must have been an impressive time for him, like on short term it seemed like a great profit. Afterall it worked the other way around.
It was a matter of time when wolf modes became unplayable and even human matches became so unfair that new players never stood a chance. The game has made it till this year because of some big spenders out there. Always the same players have kept up the game buying insane amounts of AP. I can't name a single person that joined after 2015 that still plays.
I noticed that immediately once I joined a match.
H vs W was my favorite mode too, which is pretty disappointing because its very difficult to play as a Wolf now.
It hope they consider releasing classic WolfTeam.
