If you don't want your perks don't use them. I paid for my tier 5, I would like to keep my tier 5, I pay for tier 3 patron I'd like to keep all my bells and whistles thank you very much. This is not to disparage those who wouldn't use them, or don't like them, it is to ensure that someone remains vigilant on that wall protecting the benefits that donated for, with the idea they would always be there until Microsoft flexes and removes even those abilities. You may not want to fly today, but six months from now you might want to use it in a pinch, and by God I will fight to make sure that you have access to those things you paid for. Discussing perkless servers is a slippery slope to having your perks removed in the middle of the night, something none of us agreed to when we donated our money, or continue to donate.
