Was I negative? My bad ... to be clear, I think Fizzer does a great job, after all it is a 100% F2P game.
Fizzer also managed to improve the active artifacts without ruining the passive artifacts, so why wouldn't he be able to do the same for memberships?
No reason he couldn't, I'm just pointing out that in all the time that WZI has been around, that he hasn't, and if were to, it might not be straight-up net new benefits (like 'Stats'). I could also point out the times he has given stuff for free but didn't have to (Clan Wars, WZIB rewards, free stuff for installing WZI app, tournaments with WZI powers as prizes, etc, and of course the oldies like raffles & coin wheel).
So in a sense, (hypothetically) taking away something that is free isn't even taking something away. It's just no longer providing it for free, which isn't the same.
Perhaps part of it is that he just hasn't come back to show a response and provide an opinion on whether he even agrees that membership should apply in some capacity to WZI, so imaginations run wild on what is really going on.
