Given that this is ES production (so an increase in PPO should be irrelevant), don't you believe the disproportionate number of high scoring forwards (as reflected in the stats leaderboards) compared to lower scoring forwards which arrived from overseas would skew the comparative scoring between top line players and low line players? The amount due to such an increase in the comparative quality of top line forwards vs. low line forwards would not seem to require further adjustment for difficulty.
