*sigh*
So guess it's more pay-to-get-more-access, especially in groups mechanics.

Marissa, they won't reduce them down no, but a person can't make any more characters. They did a post where they said they had a few people (Just a few) with over 40 characters from before pre megaserver, they still have all there characters. They should for the forseeable future.

How so? Just because that stuff comes with the F2P drop doesn't mean you'll have to pay for it. It's a huge content drop with lots of new stuff to make the game more attractive for new players, F2P is just a part of it.

Basically, paid accounts will level up faster (more rested XP and XP bonus) and gain rep faster, and gain more money faster (currency drop bonus, more slots in trading, lesser costs in crafting materials due to the better chances of creating the item desired).
They gain more space (housing plot, bank slots and character slot limits), which just reduces the maximum number you can gain. If you have over 1000 Items placed in housing, have more than 2 characters or more used bank slots, they won't be removed when you move to free account. You just won't be able to add more items to your skyplot or bank or create another character.
Also you gain priority access to the queues.
Otherwise, all trade skills, all classes, all dungeons, all raids, all battlegrounds and all game areas are fully accessable to both paid and free account.
Paid members just have a little "premium status", which is fair I think.
Won't change a lot for me: as long as the game is fun, I'll pay, simply to support carbine.
(Also, for questing-lazy people like me, the XP bonus is a must x) )

I think the concern on the "pay-for-group access" is more referring to the guild/warplot/circle restrictions.

Yeah. As with all options, I don't think you're gonna get kicked out of gilds and/or circles. So it's basically "Pay one month, unlock and create all bank items, characters, craftings, skyplots, circles and guilds you wanna have, back to free account", so you can still be in 5 circles even with free account.
The restriction goes to joining, creating and inviting.
So free account basically doesn't forbid you access generally, it just makes it static, like "play with what you have".
