For the OP - welcome back. I'd recommend you simply play the game for YOURSELF and ignore the comments here. Give it about 2-3 months. As for the Time Capsule angst? In a nutshell you don't HAVE to buy stabilizers. If you're Legendary you'll get 6 of them FREE DAILY from the stabilizer event. That would be enough for you to open one TC every 2-3 days. If you're NOT Legendary you'll get like 3 Stabilizers daily, I think. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong). OH and the Time Capsules will grant you a GRAND TOTAL of perhaps10-15 SPs if you're fortunate enough to get ALL the feats from them. I haven't been. I think I've acquired around 10 SPs from these and the others are simply too expensive or too rare for me to get. It is SO IMPORTANT that you simply try the game YOURSELF, though. Give it about 2-3 months. The gist of the TC angst on here is that some argue about these TCs as if it's ruining the game as in hiding SPs behind a paywall, or paying for progression. To me? This "Progression" won't make you as strong in DCUO as EITHER of these two: Try the game yourself.
