1460 SH BUFF Discussion

Why are people so insistent the game will die without 1460SH BUFF that will make getting alts to 1415 much faster?
Who will this buff benefit at the moment?
Seems like this buff just benefits whales ATM.
I’m 1445 and I just spent 100$ on the game so far and I’m trying to figure out why everyone complaining is a F2P player asking for the SH BUFF.

A lot of f2p players have hit 1460 and they want to get their alts to 1415 which is understandable. But I feel like the reason why they don’t want to release it yet is that it’ll create even larger gap between players. But who knows
