The more I think about this, the more I just feel bummed by it. Yes, I get CCP's logic. It is the right move from a resource stand point.
Still, I cared far less about my characters when that were just a picture in the top left corner. Captain's quarters gave me a way to connect to my character on a better level. The 3D model isn't the same. The captain's quarters better connected me to my characters and helped pull me back. A bland portrait and a spinning ship, one of many that I will lose, it's not the same.
Yes I know this is at the emotional level, but that is part of what gets me to pay. So again, I get the logic, it makes sense, but it is still a sad loss.
