Seems we hold differing opinions on the subscription vs Free2Play or as well known, Fee2Play, if I understand this statement correctly... I 100% pray this does not turn into a who wants to be a superhero ~ Fee2Play. Straight subscription keeps the game field equal. Fee2Play is a crappy setup for the current generation's impulsive attitude. Fee2play works in games that are incident type battles... aka, World of Tanks. MMO wise, Fee2Play loses integrity in players whom would otherwise invest time into a character to keep some reasonable level of responsibility. I think at one time they were discussing small merchants with a Fee2Play setting for inconsequential items while operating as a subscription. If that is the case and someone wants a showy glitter colored armor, more power to them. Heck, I may even have interest. However the KEY is inconsequential. I agree Xenoph. I hope there are some release notes on the crafters angle as well. I imagine it is in the near future.. least I hope.
