everything but the 30% Auction House thing and the remote control for nodes is already on the shop. You can get a days worth with loyalty points too.

  Looks to me like their version of a subscription.

you also get 7 free days of this for the attendance award at day 28... so it looks like you could get 9 days of this per 28 days played without paying a thing.

I feel like it was a little much putting this in, I hope they change it or take it away, not buying it feels like I'm losing out and giving out free limited ones isn't gonna help, you'll just get annoyed when you don't have it. Just my two cents

It's all temporary with the 'sub' purchase though. If you just paid for those things on their own you'd get them permanently. The only thing you'd miss out on is that 30% AH and that can be gotten without paying, albeit not all the time. I get why they did it, but it seems like a stupid purchase to me. The break even is roughly 4 months. you can get that stuff for 4 months (and then it goes away) for $60 or you can drop the $60 on the individual purchases and you get the benefits till you uninstall. i guess the sub version puts it on all of the toons instead of just 1 toon, so it may still be good for an altoholic.

This is the only way to get the Merv pallet.

The weight and inventory slots are in addition to the individual purchases.  Representing the items in the package as replacements for the individual versions is misleading.

You can buy 1 100 lb weight increase per toon.  This package is a means to get a 2nd.

That is also misleading. you can only buy 1 100lb weight increase, but you can also get a 50lb, 150lb, and 200lb. (and although expensive you can use 3500 points for up to 4 50lb increases per toon). all permanent. I still hold that if you plan on playing for at least 4 months you are better off buying the static ones than the 'sub'.

Looks like a standard sub less cash shop currency. You don't even have to buy it either really, a lot of the stuff you can buy separately and permanently.

The only issue I see is they don't know how to calculate tax...
