[​IMG] Rohan on the Blessing of Kings blog posted yesterday a fascinating article on player bankers in Star Wars: The Old Republic. I knew of players becoming de facto bankers in EVE Online, but I can’t say it’s common in themeparks. We have BioWare’s free-to-play limitations to thank for this one; in TOR, apparently subscribers pose as bankers for F2P players, allowing them to “deposit” [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.
