I have a lifetime sub and have not played it for over 6 months. I intend to go back and see what the changes are.
The game lacks a bit in the space travel concept for me.. I do like the space battles, though I would prefer to have a real 3D environment (don't know if they have done that yet).
Definitely worth a look if its going f2p for those who have not yet.
Ciao for now (from the white cow)
