Personally, I don't think 15 prestige is anywhere near a ridiculous amount, considering you can generate one per day by simply logging in. Being reasonable I'm guessing it might take 20 days to re-do a commander completely for free if you were to attempt to log in to play the game in the first place. If I expected re-doing a commander would be a common occurrance, I would be upset, as I would be if the devs constantly made changes that require prestige.

However, this is the first time, and in addition they started giving it out for free. I don't think they've skewed the prestige market towards it being required at all, rather they quite possibly corrected their own generosity that skewed prestige towards being worth less than it should be.

I can't be mad at them for coming up with new uses for prestige that don't skew balance outrageously towards prestige buyers... or at least not when it's free and the cost for essential things like this are generated over time.

However, I think that in the future it may not be a bad idea for the devs to offer a free re-do for things significantly affected by balance changes. I offer that as a word of advice, as there is nothing that people who've spent time on an online game hate more than change towards a system that hints at further payment to perform what they consider integral services.

Also I realize that sounded arrogant considering it's a free game but it's kind of the way economics is sometimes

edit: By that I mean the integral services would be the constant updates. All in all, I think the dev's handled it very well considering all the situations, and I tip my hat to them.
