Its getting a bit out of control and obvious
The past 3 EQs have had these sections of many empty tiles between defenders for no reason at all. I don't get the point in these as they are various lengths apart. The two on the right are so close together but nothing there while other steps are further apart.
Do EQs require a certain range of energy the devs have to stay within? If there were defenders on these I'd understand more but it's just empty and extra steps to have extra steps.
