Diminish characters? Unless there's an "age" tracker that makes no sense. If you can hit level 70 with minimal grinding (starting from when I may ask!) then you're only trimming what the player can do and likely may want to do. That doesn't make it a level cap, that makes it a truncated game. They could be playing it
instead of, thanks to the cap, not
. If they put in the time, why shouldn't they get the results? Obvious Bad Calls like that are why fans make modpatches.
They didn't have a level cap in WL1, and I think the game benefited from it. I could call it in at the end of a week of on again/ off again playing and jump a dozen levels. Just another way the open-ended ending of Wl1 was better than the "game over, it's over" of WL2.
The only angle that a level cap in WL2 should be allowed is if WL3 takes the level cap to a much higher number- for all the "'port your save file" players. Run, be free, destroy!
I for one hope to port my save in WL3 and hit the ground running.
