They've expressly said you can not access your stronghold through your ship, or your ship through your stronghold.

Each stronghold does have a landing pad, but it's not accessible to a player. You can place ships there, and the player-ship model is one of the options. However, it cannot be accessed.

Wow... so what perks do you think are acceptable to be sub only sheesh... there needs to be appealing incentives to get people to sub. Making only option no one cares about isn't a way to go, but added convenience, you can bet its incentive. I have many reaspns to sub, this would add another reason to the list.

You are patient and wise to not be drawn into the petty bickering and banter that goes back and fourth, but I would imagine it is amusing sometimes in the BW offices.

You also know that DarthDymond is likely to now quote you in his sig saying that you said, "everything DarthDymond said is correct."

Another way to look at it is the F2P model here is just the biggest, baddest, longest trial ever.

If you really like the game, sub, it is as simple as that. The restrictions on play are meant to be long and petty, or no one would sub.

Frankly, I think too much is given away for free as it is. I also would like to see a super premium sub option for $30 a month, that adds additional perks including removing all travel cool downs, adds another 10 toon slots per sever, and a few other things.

I'd pay it.

Actually I was thinking about adding this to my sig:

Oh don't worry, if I did it would be an addition, no way I'd be replacing my LoK shout-out.

I still wish I could do some form of ship customization like furniture or some upgrades to the outside of the ship like color and so on. But housing is a nice addon ether way.
