If we take the shades off for a moment the game is still technically in pre-alpha for just a little while longer. You can't possibly know that.. you're already judging future episodes that haven't even begun based solely on an incomplete product. This doesn't change the end-game scenario. You'll eventually surpass the scaling and come right back to the same problem. You can't really punish them by nerfing them just because they have more time to play.
