You may ask how do you reach this conclusion? Well its fairly simple although I do not know why people at Cryptic didn't forsee this but you have no end game so when people play thru enough characters they will simply just uninstall the client with F2P players seeing that the only things being added are cosmetic things to buy. So faster leveling = faster speed to end game = no end game = no customers...
Actually, my math on both gold subs and C-store purchases shows that their income is going to be reliant on people having as many VA 1 alts as possible and our ability to really maximize the dilithium economy is also going to be reliant on having as many VA alts as possible.

In some ways, whereas this game has historically focused on a small number of alts, the new system really pushes everyone back into the City of Heroes playbook which says, roll as many alts as possible... with the added push to do dailies and dilithium conversion on each alt.
