    now i really want to swear at the dev team.

    I'll sub for as long as I continue playing (until sometime next year when real life plans should work out).

    For now I'm just working hard in RL and preparing for a final base or two (or maybe three tops) while I play in-game. I literally have no other reason to play now otherwise.

    I'll miss you and my other in game friends but I just couldn't deal with DCs garbage same old same old grind. The new generator mods made me so angry when I haven't even finished the last ones. The repetitive formula for the episodes (weekly kill xxx things, weekly defeat these things, daily do the same 4 missions, etc) just got to me. I literally did one day worth of it, saw a NEW freaking focusing element, and logged off, went and cancelled my membership. Just no.

    I'm not planning on quitting... the question is whether or not I'm going to continue to subscribe as a "legendary member". Quitting isn't on the table yet, although moving to premium might start the process.

    This. This is why I like the game. It's *MY* characters, but in the comic book universe I love. I adore being able to play my own character inside DCUO. Having to say goodbye to them would be/will be difficult. I don't want to quit just yet.

    But I don't feel like I'm getting my money's worth from the subscription, particularly with time capsules undermining all that a subscription stands for (getting access to everything for one price).

    I *want* to support the game. But I cannot justify the cost when it feels like the perks are barely worth it and all the effort of the development team is on time capsules. I'm really, for the first time, thinking squarely that I'm going to stop subscribing. This thread is successfully clarifying my position. Thank you to everyone who has responded.

    Nothing happens to your league. I don't know about the character thing because I have not downgraded to Premium once I went Legendary. I'm sure someone here has the answer. As for the loyalty points, since there's not much to get in the marketplace (seriously guys...come ono_O) you can use them to buy Stabilizer keys to support the ones you'd get from the stabilizer event. That's about all I can add to the decision you're weighing. I know it's not as compelling as you'd like...but in the end only you can decide your reasons for whether to support as legendary or as a premium. I just know that personally, I NEVER want to deal with the cash limitation. I tasted that limit when I was premium way back in 2012...and I can STILL clearly remember how not-fun it was.

    Thanks Khalon. I have never purchased a stabilizer and I never will. I made that decision the day the stabilizers were announced.

    The cash limitation is a serious problem, but I know ways of working around it and, again, I don't feel like it's a problem worth $15 a month. What is more likely to happen is that I'll lose interest in the game because of the cash limitation and eventually, quietly, stop playing. I don't know for sure that will happen, but it does seem the most likely path. As much as I adore playing my character in the DC Universe, I won't be flouncing when I leave. I'm passionate, but I only argue when I think there's a chance someone will listen. When I leave the game, I won't care enough anymore to complain. I always note the people who are announcing they are leaving - they really care. They care a lot. They are hurt and angry, and that's why they complain. I fear I'll just let my disappointment drain away until I'm gone. This is just the first step.

    I think I've made up my mind. Daybreak will have to do something extremely impressive in the next five days to convince me to subscribe again. I just don't see it happening.

    I must say that batman gear looks amazing, but.....I think regarding new things to come, I think we are alittle too fixiated on auras and materials, I was hoping more base items, trinkets, maybe a new iconic power unlock. Etc. But nonetheless good stream.

    As for op, I wouldn't unsubscribe, I would atleast wait till earth episode comes out and the see if you want to continue, because it just won't feel the same as a premium, you would want to quit trust me lol.

    As for the marketplace being underused, totally agree.

    A lot of people are struggling with the same question. Its still a good game but we've all just seen a lot happen over the years.

    Well, when they are more excited about the new Time Capsule than fixing their game these questions should be asked.

    Just go Premium for a while. If you feel you want to start your sub back up, you'll always have that option.

    I've been a member since the game came out and I envy you. If I drop sub I lose everything. Since as a member you couldnt purchase dlcs and such. Im on the 30 every 3 month plan and honestly if it was 15 a month (45 every 3)... I would probably just quit the game. I think you should buy the dlcs you enjoy and stop membership unless you really are sure that unlimited money is worth it. I only keep mine because if I drop and decide to re-up then it would be 15 a month and not 10. For you that isn't an issue.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. I feel exactly the same way. Ive stuck around here for almost 5 years now and atm im right on the edge of quitting. This doesnt even feel like a video game anymore. It feels like a casino.

    I didn't mind time capsules at first but the whole thing has just spiralled out of control.
