Unified Currency, Take Two

As I mentioned last week, WAR is moving towards a unified RvR currency instead of having 25 or so separate ones.  Lead Developer Keaven Freeman has been on the forums discussing the issue with players, which has resulted in a new plan.

The nice thing about this plan is that vendors would not have their own conversion table, which ended up making items more expensive.  You may notice the Early Adoption column, this would probably be a weekend (announced beforehand) where you get a special conversion rate in order to encourage people to convert their currency.

As with most any change, not everyone agrees with this route.  I doubt there will ever be a consensus regarding any change in WAR, but at least there is a dialog going on between players and developers.  In the end, that is what really matters, even if it doesn't go your way.
