Re: EttenMoors VIP?
Turbine discussed the decision to leave Freep access VIP only in an interview. The reason that there is no Free or Premium option is that Turbine does not feel there any economic value in such an offer. I get the impression Turbine feels that a region pack would reduce their revenues.

Nobody going to pay those prices. Everybody is going to complain about greedy Turbine. It will not be offered.
Like all other businesses - if a product makes sense - it is not offered - it usually because there is a disconnect between what the seller is willing to accept and the buyer is willing to pay.
Another one is that the product would compete with an existing product that generates more money. This is common mechanism of corporate death. Another new company, comes along to sell the new product and wipes the original company out. Since this situation is a monopoly, only Turbine can sell in this market. Turbine does not have to worry about this issue.
