Coin Limit Will Be Removed for F2P Accounts

Starting November 13, 2012 (expansion launch ETA), Free and Silver members will no longer have a coin limit on their accounts! The introduction of the Krono brought to light how difficult it was for F2P players to purchase or sell Krono from other players. SOE listened and responded quickly; this change has been on the beta server as of two days ago. The full announcement is available after the jump.

It's an exciting time in the world of Norrath! Beginning on November 13, 2012, there will no longer be coin restrictions for players with Free and Silver memberships!

"We're always looking at ways to make sure our Free and Silver members are getting a good value now that we're Free to Play. Lifting the coin limitations is one way we're doing that," says Producer Holly "Windstalker" Longdale. "The launch of Krono is a really exciting feature for us, and we want to make sure all of our players will be able to participate in the program (buying, selling, and trading Krono in-game). After hearing that same desire expressed from the players directly, we knew it was the right time to make this change and remove the coin restriction."

Free and Silver players had previously been limited to a certain amount of gold coin per character level. They will now be able to accumulate an unlimited amount of coin on each character.

Now all the prices will go up. I get tired sometimes of hearing free-to-play players brag about how they can do everything and not pay. I am beginning to wonder why any of us should bother to pay a monthly fee.

With all due respect, any free-to-play player who brags about being able to "do everything" hasn't played very deep into the game. As a free-to-play player myself, I can attest that the lack of a shared bank, a huge limit on classes/races, and being unable to equip legendary items are just a few of the issues that I've encountered, and I'm only level 42. I do agree that prices will go up, though. I'm very curious who Kronos are intended for; it seems to me that anyone who spends the amount of time required to have enough coin to buy Kronos is likely a loyal enough player to buy a membership anyway.
This is great...but what about EQ1?

I hope they remove the coin limits in EQ1 as well. This is still a nice change, but would make sense that if EQ1 is also selling Krono (which they are) that they would have to remove the coin limitations from their Free/Silver accounts as well.
