While I have been interested in these topics, while contemplating how I would want to phrase my opinions and ideas I have come across a couple of posts by others that fall near 100% what I would say anyway. So rather than just posting the same thing in similar words, I am pointing everyone to their words.
EVE Online – Ship Rebalancing
Star Wars : The Old Republic – Legacy System
Honestly due to the drawbacks on the Legacy System with a character limit of 8 and the legacy is Server specific I will most likely be spinning down my SWToR account for 6-months to a year just because while I like the game there is just nothing in there really causing me to want to level to cap.
