Gold Stars are already devalued with few exceptions.
Can you clarify how Gold Stars have been devalued? I think this shows a bit of a disconnect between your skill level you've become accustomed to playing at and that of the average (majority of) players. For a lot of players, getting only 5 Stars is a tough goal, let alone Gold Stars.
