Everything is very new to all of us right now. Some people are struggling to comprehend some new bits within the game and we all don't really know if the update is good for the game or bad for the game or how we really feel about it yet. All will be revealed in due course.
One thing I have seen people talking about is the Daily Rewards and how they have been nerfed. Firstly, what is a Daily Reward? Oh yeah, a VP Reward. A reward for the number of Victory Points you have, which is the key measure in the game with how high up the overall scale of players you or I sit. The higher your VP score, the better your VP reward. Makes sense.
So you've opened your VP Reward Boat today and instead of 10 Shards (as an example), you now have 7 Shards as an option. "WHAT THE BAJEEZUS?!? SUPERCELL, WHY HAVE YOU MESSED WITH MY BOAT?" Let me explain...
So in conclusion: Daily (VP) Rewards have been BUFFED. However, only if you want to gain 5 VP to open the chest. If not? Then your Daily (VP) Rewards have indeed been nerfed to what you were used to.
Morale of the story: you're supposed to attack in this game. This is SC's incentive to get you to do it. Choose not to and I'm sure you can still get by, but they've made it harder and slower for you.
