So you really think this is the way to make the subscription option so attractive? People will have to pay cartel coins to unlock many other aspects of the stronghold. That micro-unlock model is more frustrating than attractive and has been slammed so many times since the inception of Free To Play in SWTOR. Considering the population decline, they should definitely revisit the nickle and diming. I am a subscriber and get all these "perks" but find it disconcerning that Free To Play have that many restrictions.
It's a time saver/convenience feature...this is EXACTLY the type of thing that should be for subs.
