They said it would happen last year, and I guess it finally is here. I hope they give a break for users who already pay a pretty big monthly fee, maybe to include it or discount it with something like the $50 a month option. I like having it, but it isn't something I want to put another $20 or so a month into, when BV is almost irrelevant in today's hobby. As most already realize, the BV doesn't mean a whole lot...but the way the site is run, it is actually an important factor.
It could actually be a good thing in the long run with people just paying market value, I dunno...
