    free trial users had no cap on skills before R49. How would you suggest I rewrite this?

    isn't 'Can only advance skills up to level 50 (previously there was no cap)' sufficient?

    I'm just not sure where the 'out of 120' comes in or what that means.

    120 is the max skill level a player can realistically achieve (hence the brouhaha about me setting my skills at 200 when crafting the gear for the charity auction recently)

    Well, in WOW you can play until a named LVL, too. From there you have to purchase the game. May be lvl 50 (SotA) is too much for testing - we will see ... Actual I have no idea, how much of the story a new player could do and what lvl he can reach after he've done all paths?

    I consider this more true on the crafting side than the adventuring side, but id consider 120 pretty high ive got many of my primere skills locked at 120 its just not worth going much higher imop.

    Good job team, this is a Brass supported tactic.

    Ah, no wonder I was confused. There are several players in my guild alone that have skills over 120... So i was confused why that would be listed as a cap.

    The simplified statement you fixed it to is much clearer.

    Also, to get snarky... Players can realistically only achieve max of 120??

    Do you not follow this community? As I mentioned there are plenty of examples of people going higher than that, and we arent even launched yet.

    Edit. To be fair its possible lots of people lie about thier skill levels

    But in WoW you can level up to 20 from 100 that blocks 90% of the Game Content. In Shroud you could play with a full group of adv 50 prople and do 90% of all content that is in game now. Major differences.

    @DarkStarr
    If this is only a trial for testing, why are they able to use the Add-on Store and buy items they mostly can not use anyway?

    Most of what you point out is off.

    • Free Trial Changes: Free Trial users can now only advance each skill to level 50 (previously there was no cap on their skills). Also, they are now limited to the Courage Path only (previously there was no limit to story). Note that we are switching trial users from the Love path because data shows that starting players with a sword is easier than starting them with a bow. NOTE: With these new changes in place we are now going to leave the Free Trial in place all the time starting on 12/20.

    So no they can't play 90% of the all the content. And if they didn't have access to the store how could they purchase from Poratalium? Also, as was stated in the announcement, any $5 purchase in the store gives them forum posting rights, which do NOT come with the Free Trail.

    The short Main Story is only a fragment of the Game Content compared to all the other quests and scenes who are in the game. Doesnt mean to lock them out of the Store to buy the Game, just show the other stuff after they bought the game. They do not know what they can use in trial or not. I also have never seen a 5$ Forum Post right crap in any other game forum and think this is totally garbage. It locks out people with questions about the game.

    Thats why i do not debate any further, but that is my feedback to your R49 Changes: If you change the Trial System, pls also change to 5$ Forum fee and improve the Trial limitations more to avoid botting before it goes live.
