(Plato's Response to eRepublik)
Day 2410 of the New World

Now, Plato, I have an idea for you. I think you will like it.
Your solution to the blunder you made makes sense from the Gold-spent point of view. You've essentially issued a "recall" on defective Bazooka parts, and you are to be commended.
But what your solution does not do is placate (and yes, it is spelled correctly in the title of my article... It's the latin form...) the people who spent the first hours of the tournament tanking heavily in pursuit of your originally promised rank bonus points. I know exactly how you can make it up to them... and it will turn you into a hero everywhere.
It's simple. Merely convert all Energy Bar awards into double bars.
Yup. Give me 2x Energy Bars instead of 1x Energy bars starting with the very first EB reward at 4500 Prestige Points, and all the way down the list.
Now the people who have tanked extra will be rewarded something for the extra tanking they did. It isn't the exact same bonus they were pursuing - you took that bonus away, and while you've refunded the Gold you haven't "refunded" the tanking. No, it's not the same exact bonus they were pursuing, but's its a decently dynamic equivalent.
Double energy bars would TOTALLY refund the extra tanking.
Oh, and btw, this tournament will have just gotten THAT MUCH BETTER as a result.
Trust me, Plato, this will fix it. It will be the most epic decision you will have ever made.
