Default Re: 115 AAX plugins included?

I will answer my own question here since I just read the FAQ which I should have done in the first place. It looks like if I let the included 1-year subscription/plan expire into perpetual, I will lose a good portion of the plugins unless I renew or rent the complete plugin package. That just blows me away that if you buy a Carbon ($4000) and then buy the Ultimate perpetual ($2600), you'll still lose access to plugins like Reverb One, Eleven MK II, and Green JRC Overdrive after a year unless you keep paying. Yes, the plugins are only $50 a year, but again, I don’t do subscriptions. I would buy them outright if they gave me the choice. It sure sucks that you almost have to get a lawyer to go over the fine print when buying something from Avid
