I bet that almost nobody will read this wall of text.
Whats stopping serious spenders from buying linari, gold and honor stat points... A lot of those items are in hero chests/crafted/etc and basicly you need only few or several items from honor shop... Then we have alts problems. I can easily see myself spamming new walls all day long just to get free honor...or raiding towers. I like your ideas but I think its best if we shorten this list to things which can not be abused and will apply to all stages of the game... things everyone agree should be there...shorten our requests to 3 at a time and one sentence without so much theory...
Here is an example of what can be removed: Hero animations
They were added as safeguard because it was possible to use same skill twice... I won't go into details but you could leap twice with Rufuo and land on the castle during siege
I have seen passive skill do this only once(Grimms). Nonetheless this feature will stay as it is.
Login gifts just started so i guess you can remove that for now. 1.9 , 1.10 also.
