It's a start, but needs more work
I have 190 cores. But i agree the way the cores work drives players away, hurting player pool. Also drives everyone into patrol mode which leaves me soloing everything. Which is a fun challenge for most things. Until you need teammates who are not potatos for gambit prime and reconing teir 2 and 3. Then that is annoying solo. Forget raiding all my raiders are on patrol mode waiting for a hvt. Alot of my good raiding friends have long gone.
