Hi @Davin_Studer ,
Short answer to your question: Yes. In my experience, Jira Align is meant for big teams - where big team means 50 - 125 and up.
If your group is on the smaller side, then Jira Portfolio and related plug-ins might make more sense for you.
Longer answer: The structure of the pricing, if you read it carefully, is 30 active users and 120 integrated users (for a total of 150 users of two flavors). This is for the smallest option, as you stated.
An active user is someone working in Jira Align - typically Scrum Master/Product Owner up to executives. They are actively using Jira Align on an often daily basis for planning, tracking, decision-making, etc.
An integrated user is someone who is working in Jira and whose work syncs to Jira Align for metrics and tracking, but doesn't use Jira Align personally - think dev team members. They do now reap benefits from Jira Align in the form of info such as:

That being said, I don't know if the pricing tool contains the only options or is representative of the range. You would need to speak to a Jira Align sales person for details.
Disclaimer: I am not an Atlassian/Jira Align employee and can't speak for them as to specific pricing options or future functionality. I am sharing what I know from my four year's experience implementing Jira Align/AgileCraft as a former AgileCraft employee and independent.
Hi @Davin_Studer - There is a very robust connector for Jira Align to connect with Jira via the Atlassian Jira API. One of the parameters is how often JA polls Jira for changes. We recommend setting it so JA pulls all changes from Jira every 7 minutes. Any changes made in Jira Align to issues linked in Jira push from JA to Jira within 90 seconds of the change being made in Jira Align.
Last week in San Diego, Scaled Agile Inc announced the latest version of their SAFe framework (SAFe 5.0). It was an awesome reveal and I'm curious what you all think about the new framework and...
