Trial Characters and Influence

OK, if you remove everything but subbed and training characters from influence you will be removing:
  1. non training subbed alts (one on a DT account and 2 on every normal account)
  2. all trial accounts current or not
  3. any currently non-subbed accounts

The likely result of this for some of the more established groups in game is a significant reshuffle and a reduction by up to 50% in the number of active companies as people move characters from unviable companies into more viable ones.

Is that a bad thing? No idea.

Minor point. The initial effect of this will be minimal on longterm bigger settlements with hundreds of thousands of bulk goods in store. It will also have minimal effect on new companies. It will however be an issue for medium companies/settlements that have not built up much in the way of bulk goods and relying on influence from unsubbed previous members to maintain their settlement level.

So in other words, kill off the middle class? smile

Pretty much smile

These changes need to be done slowly in stages if you don't want to nerf the fledging middle sized groups.

Bigger settlements will be annoyed at the resources expended on holdings and outposts that will be wiped (though a single feud by someone just to be annoying will do that anyway) but their huge stockpiles of bulk goods mean it will not effect their bottom line in any substantial way.
