Meh. If this is anything like when Champions went free to play, I won't have access to all the stuff I previously earned with my account, including the characters I put alllll those hours into.

F2p games end up costing more than the regular ones...that's what I would say if I was a forum troll.

Actually they have said former players will retain anything they have purchased or earned via Vet Rewards, plus receive more toon tokens than the default two based on the amount of time you previously played. This means you can unlock your existing toons or create new ones.

I got a 15-day "come back to us and play!" trial in an email today. I will probably reinstall and give it a whirl for a couple days.
