We've had a large number of people request that we keep subscriptions, artifacts carts, and credit purchases open on Imperian after we start doing automatic credit generation on the 15th. So the question is, does it matter if we keep them on?
I'm semi leaning toward the idea that leaving purchases on would be fine. We would probably not continue to do some of the special items, like giftbags. Leaving purchases open would keep a small amount of cash coming into the game which may allow better services and it lets people who want to "catch up" fast to do so.
That said, most people should be able to get a viable combat character fairly quickly with regular play. Getting a second profession will take much longer, but the lessons and credits earned from levelling and achievements should get that first profession and basic artifacts relatively easily.
Anyways, let me know what you think.
