I think it's a bit of a stretch to consider non-subs 99% of the game's population so I feel my point stands. I don't see them alienating 99% of the game's population with a highly restrictive gearing system.

Until I read something that indicates otherwise, I am not going to go buck-wild nerd raging over changes I know basically nothing about. People can continue rolling in hysterics if they want, by all means it's their choice I just think it's better to relax and wait till we get more information.
I only sub off and on. When I sub, I grind GC. When I go back to pref, I level chars. I have no complaint about this system. Prototype/artifact gear is fine for leveling.

What I find amusing about these supposed charitable complaints asking for non-subs to get GC is that many prefs can't use artifact-level gear unless they get the authorization. That's been a thing since F2P was released. There's ALWAYS been a gear distinction between subs and non-subs [unless you get the unlock]. Yet I've rarely seen a sub insist that non-subs should be automatically granted artifact gear authorization. This issue is only an issue for subs who don't want to pay for their subs anymore and still earn GCXP.

Well, in my case, I currently feel kind of burned out. And this is a thing CXP can't heal.
I'm still a subscriber, but I just wish I could pause that for a while. I've begun playing Deponia instead, although I'm already halted with the first few puzzles.

That's probably why bioware is about to nerf conquest by "improving" the conquest system in upcoming patches.

Predicted it during the livestream announcement, the changes will negatively impact people farming conquest system.

I expect the trend will continue. - Yes there may well be a new tier to grind or craft for, and it's a cynical way of making people re-earn what basically they had previously to keep them subbing and logging on.

BW are a business. They're in this to make money. - ticking off a large section of population isn't good business sense.

There is a difference between ticking players off purposely and ticking players off because the the players are unwilling to adapt. There is a distinction that puts the blame more on one side vs the other, and you clearly still dont understand it.
people will adapt to conquest nerfs but that doesn't mean they'll like them.

What kind of conquest "nerf" do you mean?

People were mad and griped about 5.0 when it was announced - when it was in testing- and when it was released to the players. We had a massive exodus from the game and it left the devs with their pants down.

This game has a long history of the devs believing they know more of what the players want than the actual players do.

To counter the valid arguments the players made what we got in return was meme worthy. "It will be exciting" "Never know what you will get" "we can tweak the drop rates."

Perhaps it would be best for these devs to not just hear us but to actually listen to us for once.

This latest "crafted endgame gear grind" is a gigantic dumb idea.

Vendors guys... tokens, a sure thing... RNG should NEVER be involved in gearing in an MMO. You grind for results... not the possibility of a result.

This game has not had enough new content to warrant new gear. New gear is not content!
