You seem to forget the fact, that dry season was a one-time only thing ... and that Menhirs had its test server. Also, it's not only about bug testing [btw, TG manages to screw up even the simplest of things on a regular basis in terms of bugs], but also about testing the balancing. Is the number good? Is it good at all? Does it was it's supposed to do? Has it unexpected and/or unwanted side effects? Also, creating a poll, which is written very biased and while downvoting opinions against it, yields a very inaccurate result. And, you miss a lot of cons and invent some pros. More people in leadership positions isn't a pro at all. This means, that most kingdoms will be lead by garbage and are just a snack for kingdoms with a good leadership. It's not even remotely less biased, premade kingdoms rarely do exceed 60 members and if they do, they will be much much much more likely to be willing to create a wing for the sake of playing together, thus boosting premades even more. It also won't be more competetive at all. Either there will be lots of wings, or, the good kingdoms are now only X accounts, a number which will exceed the number of decent+ accounts anyway, getting rid of the semiactive garbage, which isn't a big deal to fight off.
Also, in the very same thread, that you linked, someone posted very good cons against it, that you simply ignored: Kingdom member limitation
To sum it up (for the other readers, I'm sure you know the post very well, but just chose to ignore it):
- Hard limits force you to make bad decisions like "do I keep an active, chatty noob or do I kick him for someone who does nothing, but build def"
- This won't work after all, there will just be a wing. In T:L it is like this, main ally only gets the win, wings get nothing. There still are metas. T:L is the living proof, that what you propose won't work as intended at all.
- New players are more or less fucked. You euphemize this by saying "it'll take them some time to get recruited by a top kingdom", but they just won't get recruited at all, get bashed, and get farmed. Either this, or they land in the 17th wing of some random meta.
I dislike kingdoms based on pure mass aswell, which you will know if you read the other thread, but this solution is just not working and this thread and poll is biased as hell ... and there are much better ideas and solutions than hard limits, for the most trivial instance, the one Curtain posted in the post I linked.
