I've decided after reading all the messages in the anti-bot thread to change my accounts to free. I have an account that is 840 days entitled. Do I need to create a sim in TC with that account before amnesty to get my skill locks or will any sim I create afterward have the skill locks? It's not worth it to pay $9.99/month. It will be more profitable to me to change both my accounts to free ones, play in TC and buy $20,000 worth of EA Land cash. That's more than I could hope to earn anyway with the limits that they have put on the game already and I don't have to sit there and make jams the whole time I'm playing. I can socialize and have FUN without all the work and play free.
