This is pretty much a less than raw deal. I don't see the purpose of getting rid of group slots vs actually putting in a proper prune old users function. The land fees aren't even discounted for start up either so this isn't really going to push out that many new users hitting premium. The group gifts are all no-mod billion land impact stuff and there are no real incentives for the casual user to ever get premium to this date. The icing on this mess is that they're removing the quarterly options for premium.
