Personally kinda wondering when they ever blatantly stated themselves that Ship 4 would be fresh start. I mean yeah I am annoyed that, as a PC Player (I don't own an XBox) I had to wait a stupid amount of time to play this in the North America Full English version. However, that doesn't mean I am going to cry for a "Fresh Start" because inevitably you are going to end up earning gear or items that are just as good if not better (In terms of both stats and appearance, trust me, the Closed Beta stuff is only good as merit nothing more) than what was handed out.
You guys really have to calm down on this whole "Fresh Start" thing. First it will be "Make Ship 4 a Fresh Start!" then people will have connection issues, download issues, etc. and demand Ship 5 be a "New Fresh Start" and so on and so forth.
Guys, this game is like Final Fantasy 14. PvP and Competition are not contributing factors to how enjoyable this game is, if anything PvP is a bit boring and needs a lot of work. Calm down, realize that it's just some stupid cosmetics they got because Xbox called Firsties. The first to play are often the first to quit as well. Before you know it you will see less and less.
As for the argument of "But My Economy!!!!" get over it, you guys aren't going to fix a Game's economy by having Fresh Start. Whales will buy the AC, Star Gems, and what-have-you, then they will sell unwanted cosmetics on the Player Shops for high prices because that's how things go. You want a stable economy? Become a functioning community, setup a Trade Network with rules like "Set Outfit Prices according to Gender, Color, etc. and no higher or so and so blacklisted blah blah", and MAYBE you can make the Economy work in game. But that won't happen. Because we are humans. We are greedy, we like pretty things, and pretty things beats our greedy needs.
