I couldn't find anything anywhere stating that the autoscaling was getting removed, so I'm making this post as a last ditch effort.
Was the scaling system removed? I mostly play this game with my father, but I have more time to play it solo than he does, so I'm usually a much higher level than he is. The scaling was the main thing that allowed us to keep playing together without the time investment difference becoming too much.
Did I miss something? Was it removed? If so, why?
