Frankly, I'm bored to crap with being forced to sim 90% of the time because of the rule change. Targets are harder to come by, and when you find one, it's like Christmas come early. If the protections stay as they are, it's extremely unlikely that I will continue to pay to play. Definitely not on a new server. As Evo's Fenix profile puts it so perfectly - "This game is extremely boring with the new garbage protection system. It's like they want everyone to be a simmer. I've never been so excited to log on to see a base attacked or an occupation stolen, simply because it means I can finally do something."
