I asked this before in a Season 2 thread, but it kinda got lost, so creating a new topic.
Do we know if it will be necessary to complete Season 2 in Hard mode to unlock whatever might come next (Atlantis Base, new buildings, Season 3 etc etc)?
Or will just completing Atlantis in normal mode be sufficient to progress?
I ask because I am as far as is possible with Normal mode, but I have only bothered to do 2 or 3 provinces in hard mode so far. Should I get a move on?
I realise I am missing Atlantis tokens by not doing the hard modes, but is that the only downside?
