For years, people have been asking for character retirement to get a portion of their credit value back for new characters, and IRE have been adamant in denying any sort of permanent credit transfer from old characters to new.
If possible at all, I'd love to hear the reasoning behind this policy change that lead to the option for players to use character retirement in order to get credits to spend on new characters. Personally, I think this is something that might revitalize peoples' interest in the IRE games, or even give old players an opportunity to branch out and try one of the other games.
Also, I'd like to hear the playerbase's opinions. I have some Achaea characters I could retire for a fair amount of credits, which I'd potentially use either for another Aetolia character or one of the other IRE games. Anyone else considering taking advantage of this, and if so, what're your plans?
Kudos to IRE and the management of the games for going through with this. Really nice surprise.
