Personally, I feel that if this is a concern of yours for the sole reason of keeping your deed(s) up, perhaps it would be better to ask about reduced upkeep costs that would benefit everyone instead of trader deeds that benefit the select few who have them (DESPITE the amount of effort that was put into them, or that it has taken to keep them operational). I know that personally I am planning on dropping deeds, including one that I have had for nearly 8 years on Inde, simply because of the upkeep costs associated with it, and the fact that I will no longer be able to purchase reduced coin prices from players.
I understand that removing RMT is good for the game and I applaud the devs for taking seemingly drastic changes despite Wurm's history, but I feel that deed upkeep, including decay on deed, should be looked at further, hopefully alongside the upcoming updates and rule/policy changes.
With that said, do keep in mind if you are actively playing, it should in theory still be possible to pay for upkeep and premium in-game with silver earned in-game, but I suspect that it will most likely be substantially harder that it is now to do so.
I think it's because Retrograde has clarified that account sharing between "one or two" people is ok, and people are concerned by what exactly this means, since "one or two people" could be up for interpretation. What if for example, we have a couple who are playing together and share their accounts, and they for some reason lose access to playing for an undetermined amount of time..... can they in theory have someone log into their accounts to ensure everything is ok? I think it's these kinds of things that need to be set in stone, is all, before people are comfortable.
