    • Account security, customer service, and bot detection all improved recently.
  • Free accounts starts with less bag slots/character slots than paid accounts.
  • No map wide chat for free accounts.
  • Whispers every 30 seconds.
  • You can access the trading post but can't mail stuff to other players.

Thank god they're limiting WvW entry...  Somebody would have to put a lot of effort into trolling other servers.

I presume this means they can't enter WvW until they're level 60, but wouldn't it be hilarious if they were downleveled to 60 while in WvW? :lol:

I thought they'd be scaled to level 60 in WvW as well... my reaction was "poor sods are going to get slaughtered"

On the bright side, we can convince the new players to upgrade and join our armies.
