Honestly... I like the idea. Two things though. 1) If its Truebox, no deal. I won't waste my time setting up multiple computers and playing Daybreak's Reindeer Games. 2) I would highly suggest you also take the opportunity to go Free Trade(FV loot) on the server. You claim its Cancer? Well... the server is already well past the expansions where that thing really mattered because currency-based raid loot isn't that far off, and everybody has a full set of starter gear better than the droppables that sold well. Either way, everything of note is instanced, so none of it is required to buy. Here is where you show it either kills a server, or maybe it helps it. Both of those things would then act as catnip and make the server less a late-stage Phinny-Clone, and more its own thing. Which, given its a surprise entrant into the TLP swepstakes, it should really be its own thing. Sadly, what is more likely is its an attempt to shore up Phinny's numbers... so if it falls by the wayside, it can be merged into Phinny with no issue. As such, we'll probably get a bs clone, at which point people wonder why you wouldn't just start on Phinny to begin with.
