My biggest fear with this deal is that they are proceeding to fast, and when it is ready to transition, you have to transition to carry on playing, or do not transition, and can not play.
eg When DCUO transitioned, they announced that the Authenticators were not useable with PSS1, and so I would imagine that DCUO players who use the Authenticators would not play any more. If they made it optional so that you could still log into your SOE account and use the Authenticators, then that would have been better. Then when PSS1 were able to get Authenticators working with them, then to make it non-optional
The other thing is that everytime security is mentioned with PSS1, there is just silence, meaning that the security is not going to be crash hot., and could even be worse than SOEs security pre May 2011.
The deal could end up being good, but they forcing us to move before they have everything in order. It is one thing a MMO not being finsihed at launch, but not getting security ready is irresponsible.
I will only transfer to prossiben if they say their security is the same as SOEs or better, and they dish out Authenticators. Or if I decide I want my ID to be stolen.
I just hope they see sense, and if the deal has to go ahead, then they make it optional to stay with SOE until everything is worked out with PSS1, and everyone feels that PSS1 is just as good as SOE or hopefully better, and then make it non-optional.
