I’m all for the greater good of the game of course and am glad that you’ve thought of a way to curtail tc piracy.
It will, however, change the way I play (not a bad thing to change). I do hope you allow dead worlds to remain or give ample warning before deleting old servers… will need to prioritize now.
The nostalgic part of me thinks it will be sad to lose access to some incredible worlds with beautiful builds that are “dormant” waiting for someone to jump start them again. So many great worlds. I visit some on occasion for reference or just to play where it’s a bit peaceful. I love when friends take me to see some of their impressive servers that died out for this reason or that. Of course, this is a smart thing to do (cost effective and necessary), but it will be sad to let go.
