So, as we discuss "Favor" rewards in another thread, I have advocated a bifurcated system. One for your in-game characters which affects them directly (the current favor system) and a second which rewards your ACCOUNT.

The main change would be that 32 point builds would be removed from the favor system(edit: drow too).

I would propose Turbine establish a reward system for players based on the length of the subscription and perhaps use of premium services. This would be similar to a reward system offered through traditional retailers and product providers.

Solely as a starting point, open to suggestion, it could look something like this:

3 mos. consecutive subscription: Drow unlocked
6 mos. consecutive subscription: 32 point builds on 1 server
9 mos. consecutive subscription: 1 free character transfer between servers, 1 free name change
12 mo. consecutive subscription: 32 point builds on all servers
15 mo. consecutive subscription: 1 server cross character bank slot (1 panel)
18 mo. consecutive subscription: 1 extra character slot on 1 server
24 mo. consecutive subscription: cross-server special optional "title" for all characters, chance to change the appearance of a character of your choice.

Yes, yes, I know some of this is not yet available and would have to be implemented, if possible. But it is a thought. I am sure my fellow forumites can be creative and give me some other options. :)

1 caveat - No rewards which directly affect gameplay or character advancement - those are for the in-game favor system.

EDIT: I am open to modifying the system to include credits for bringing people into the game (I believe Turbine currently awards you playing time for this) or paying and using premium services.

I like the favor system exactly the way it is now. So a change in unlocking drow or granting 32 point builds simply for playing the game is something I am not in favor of.

I kinda like it, but leave in the favor so there is 2 ways for people that come and go.

I agree, I am not advocating a removal of the current in-game favor system. I am simply saying remove "account" rewards for 'character' rewards for the in-game system.

Sure, why not? :D

No, but you can get a free cup with your favorite ddo character on it with every 8 gallon or more fill up.
