I did not see anything posted in the patch notes, Dev Diary, or other forum/website post that Turbine should be using to convey official game changes. Yes, there is a note in the game on the Maintenance panel that states that. That is really not good enough. Does the Abandon button take you to the Maintenance panel where the note is? Or does it just abandon the house without showing you the note? (I have never used the Abandon button since I have no intention of abandoning the house and do not want to test if there is an "are you sure" present). Unless the note is shown to you during the abandon process, it is useless. This represents a major change to the way the game worked. It should be stated in the patch notes, some official post that everyone should know to see what the changes are. Not put only in the game in a window panel unrelated to the note.
