Seriously with this BS paywall-locking every single remotely useful thing.
Alliance storage requires 10,000+ alliance points AND only people paying for a membership can use it.
Oh yeah, and you can't give items to friends, either. I get that this type of pay-gating every single useful aspect works in the east, but it's pure BS to lock basic functions that EVERY OTHER MMO HAS behind a paywall.
The less functions you give me for free, the less I want to pay, because every single thing is just another 'encouragement' to buy a membership instead of..you know..making a game worthy of being paid for.
