Why can one currency be used in the game?  You have play money, Dabloons, Silver & Gold Star as currency.   At least make the currency you offer interchangeable with each other.   Why can't play money be transferred into Gold & Silver star currency.  I am positive the reason it is that way is to make money for WOW.

It's a free to play game. They have to make money somehow.

Bingo. WG is a for-profit company.

The game I used to play STO, which is free to play as well, you can exchange Dilithium which is in game currency for purchased currency through a in game trade system.  Some people would buy in game currency known as credits and sell it for in game currency dilithium so they could craft.  Like wise others would sell dilithium for credits so they could buy ships in game.
 
Now with that said dilithium is a controlled in game currency where you can only refine 8,000 dilithium per day to provide a choke point to prevent excessive farming in a given 24 hr period.
 
In WoWs, what needs to be done is set up where you can use silver to convert XP on premium ships to free XP.  I have so much XP on my premium ships that I will never convert them because it would cost me a min of $200 to convert it and that in my book is total [edited].  I already purchased these premium ships so why should I have to spend even more of my real money to convert the XP they earned to free XP.  The least they could do is make it convertible by silver, I got close to 1 million silver and I don't even use it really.
 
Another thing is they could do like STO, and use a stop gap but allow in game currency (XP or Silver) to be traded for Gold.  I mean we already have a means to convert Gold into silver.  Why not allow us to convert silver back to gold.  Doesn't have to be the same rate if you are afraid of farming.  Could be pricy but at least give us reasons to spend silver as I'm sure theres a lot of us out there that don't even spend much silver.

I have earned 100 million credits and 1.5 mil exp on a  premium Ship. I can't do anything with these unless I pay real cash ( fair to me WG needs to pay its bills ) What you propose is bypassing the system. One question... Would you let a homeless person to drink your beer and sleep with your family? I assume not. You provide for you and yours as does WG.

many players have over 10 MILLION credits waiting for funds to be transfered into free XP

I'm not a Unicum; I only have about 8 mill or so

we're not talking a few hundred dollars here, but thousands, to convert it all

and if I ever had that kind of money, I could hand out Missouri's at will.

everyone suffers through the same issue; credits piling up that cannot be used

many, many ideas have been put forward as to what WoW should/could allow captains to do with these credits

nothing has really been put into action yet, and most likely won't

but if you really need something, and you have the coin to convert the credits, it can be very convenient

(you see, it's not pay to win, but pay to continue to be competitive in every match)

I am a free to play player and I only have ten slots to hold ships in wows and I don't want to have to pay money for doubloons and I don't want to sell any of my ships. It is a very problematic position for me.
