Really though, it’s getting old. I get the not wanting people to play with your paid DLC content without paying but the game wouldn’t be NEARLY as successful without the modding community. Locking out options like the new faces and other things like that doesn’t do anything for the game but disappoint the community that has rallied around these modders and their mods for a game that, otherwise, has a still Alpha feel like Funcom decided that big PP physics were more important than diversity of content.
Letting your game flourish, I imagine would be more beneficial in the long run.
Sky could be the limit as the platform itself is great, but the delivery is sloppy.
