    Just thinking out loud here....

    Replace it with "Diplomatic Immunity" - allow nerve to regenerate to +xx above maximum while traveling.

    +1 per upgrade

    Players in HoF factions with +40 max nerve would pretty much not benefit, but it would offset one of the big opportunity costs for younger players traveling long flights and losing natural nerve regen.

    Edit: fat fingers and phone make typos!

    I agree with Goober. If no one is using the upgrade it needs to be changed. Maybe the travel time reduction doesn't feel right, and that is fine. But if it is just there for "flavor" it might as well not be there at all. Pointless content is bad content.

    I don't understand that, if it's just not being used, why does it need to be removed? It's not actively causing anyone any harm by being there. I definitely have a different mindset there.
    Any comments to my ideas?

    Any thoughts on replacing it with a hunting skill increase tree?

    A universal item discount would be cool, but way too powerful with UAE items. Would it be possible to have a tree that reduces the cost of flowers/plushies? (Leveled up with flower/plushie purchases)
    Excellent & well thought out ideas...
    So that'll definitely be a ched no :)

    My take is that old, outdated, useless contact is bad for the game.  It creates the illusion of choice, where there is none.  Torn already has far too many instances where one thing is so obviously the best so "do it or else."  You regularly talk up how you want there to be multiple pathways to success in torn and an upgrade tree no one uses, which provides no value would seem to be diametrically opposed to that point of view.  

    That said, I do recognize that dev time is limited. A rework of the tree might not be the best way to spend time, especially with Ranked Warring apparently around the corner. Maybe a better option is to simply remove it and put a sign up that says unavailable for the time being (sort of like some of the company specials). Sure, removing the option would make it look like torn has less content, but unused content is very close to non-existent content.
