Originally the earlier announced plan didn't go down very well.
They were removing the 500 station cash a month and instead replacing it with a choice of a item worth 2000sc. If you didn't pick a item, you would loose out for that month.
People complained, whined and moaned and surprisingly SOE listened.
The new plan sounds great:
They are removing the $19.95USD all access plan and making the standard $14.95USD subscription the same as All Access. This means if you subscribe to SOE you get subscription benefits for all their online games ( excluding console games ).
That's Everquest 1& 2, Planetside 2, Vanguard and many more.
As well as 500 SC.
The weird thing is you need to claim your station cash each month. All of the above games are still free to play as well.
Good job SOE for listening to your players. I'll be looking at the subscription when Everquest:Next is released.
