I think the price increase is too much for what we're given, and what many people need from webflow. I teach a class on webflow and considering that the students now need to spend $23/month to learn how to launch a site in webflow is pretty unreasonable for them. And the student plans for webflow don't allow the students to publish a CMS website.
I think a good solution would be a "portfolio" plan - with less cms options, and less form submissions. Just enough to make a nice portfolio site, but remain affordable.
