From Gold to Silver?

I know the silver members have fewer of everything, but if I were to stop paying a monthly subscription, what would I lose and what would I retain?

For example, if I have 72 inventory slots as a gold member, and they are all full... what happens to the extra items once the subscription ends? Or do the 72 slots remain?

Just wondering... Thanks in advance for the help!

    You will retain all inventory slots. However, your EC cap will go to 10m. You will not earn any extra EC until you purchase the EC cap from the C-Store or drop below 10m.

    I had seen the difference matrix, but it is vague in spots about what is lost and what is kept; hence the opening question.

    So, it sounds as if the cap gets reduced, but the inventory slots stay... what about the Account Shared, character slots, dilithium refinement caps, etc?

    Thanks again!

    Character slots and account bank will stay along with Extra bank slots and inventory slots, being able to refine more dilithium will be lost I believe

    I never bothered with the extra dil refinement, but the rest I can confirm.

    i can also confirm this, although if you were subbed for 800 days you still get to refine the extra 1000 dilithium every 2 days as it's an' 800 day vet reward.

    Basically, the only things you lose out on are your Zen stipend (not worth $15/month) and the EC cap (which can be raised again through the C-Store), as well as auto-refining in case you actually use that feature. Your Veteran rewards counter also stops while unsubscribed (but you keep any and all earned rewards) and any characters created/leveled after you stop your subscription don't gain the subscription benefits until you re-subscribe.

    Not much. Gold is worth it for one month to permanently unlock all your bag slots but once acquired, they stay for good. After that gold is kind of pointless. Do a one time purchase to raise your credits limit and you will hardly tell the difference. Bear in mind you're limited to 3 char slots with free but any additional ones you made under gold get grandfathered in. Make them before you switch.

    Thanks all for your comments... Just getting to the point where money spent could have been invested into a lifetime sub...
