HOW 2 GET PEOPLE 2 PLAY GAEM:
step 1: add level 30 shards
all you gotta do is add level 30 shards, with gear increasing + level at the rate it currently levels by. keep the textures the same i dont care. dont even bother adding affixes for the new shards keep them as the level 15s. and just use the SAME algorithm that the 1-15 scales off of now. but just extend it out to 30. players will have to push their skill to unimaginable limits and cause people to be absolutely on the grind. literally all that needs to happen is add the gear with the same textures and everything just higher + levels, and use the same difficulty algorithm that is used for 1-15 but up to 30 instead. 30 would be very very difficult maybe even not possible who knows. the player base would work and push to as high as possible. showing a true skill and its farmable good gear rewarded by high skilled gameplay. players will push themselves and have a whole new experience. this seems very possible and low effort to add. and would add a TON of new fun and content.
