23-Jun-2011 - Introducing: the Members� Loyalty Programme!

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how I feel about these. I really hope they don't think that just because some of us have been members for years that we deserve stat boosting items. I'm fine with cosmetic stuff and emotes, those are obviously irrelevant to anything training related. The ROFL emote actually looks good, emotes and such is the sort of things I want to see out of this update.

havent got time to look a tthe whole thing, but it looks good imo.

 

1 small question- do we get rewards for being members when the updtae goes live or only start getting them when updating membership after the update is live.

 

Only current members will receive enough Loyalty Points to immediately make the most of the new equipment slot. To take full advantage of this and all the other rewards available, subscribe today!

Doesn't that sort of contradict this:

 

Q. Will I get Loyalty Points for any previous membership?

A. Unfortunately not. I refer you back to the following example:

 

"If you made rewards so that a 9 year member wouldn't be able to instantly buy them all, then it would take 9+ years for anyone to get enough points which isn't ideal.

1. link comes up as dead for me

2. i dont think so because i think it means membership current as of the release date and not redeemed after release


if the world didn't suck, we'd all fly off into space

Hopefully one of these auras can be applied to my Chaotic Rapier to make it less of a boring wimpy stick that just happens to hit like a truck... :rolleyes:

 

 

Rather fun and harmless looking stuff, which is good. I'm hoping they never offer stat boosting items or skill levels, either for points or cash.

Yes, but in the last two months alone, there have been far too many contradictory statements to take even official statements as literal fact. It's like treading through a waffle house (sorry, it's lunchtime and I'm hungry :( )

 

...

 

Anyway, interesting stuff. When I saw the new emotes I wasn't sure to laugh or curl up in a ball. It's all cosmetic though, but that's cool anyway.

I didn't notice until the end of the clip there was the aura there too. I wonder if it applies with regular bolts and arrows as well. o.O Or with chinchompas... Oh god, glowing chichompas. XD

Wow, who picked the music for that video?icon_razz.gif

 

Either someone who doesn't care, someone who can't hear or someone who has no sense of musical beat whatsoever. :P

I'll buy the most useful aura/addition first, or the one I like the most depending on if ALL things in the shop are cosmetic.

I think the Cannon was firing a Karamanthulu at one point, or however it's spelt :P

 

Looks ok, but kind of annoying they made it look like an update then said "It's a video for next weeks update yaaaaay!" <_<

Personally, I wouldn't mind if not all of the rewards were cosmetic. Nothing wrong with an aura making my C Rapier have the strength bonus of a C Maul. :razz:

 

 

I'll probably be getting an aura as my first item, then maybe an emote next month (or another aura assuming there are multiples).


99 HP, Attack, Strength, Defence, Summoning, Ranged, Herblore, Prayer, Agility, Magic, Slayer, Fletching, Fishing, Woodcutting, Mining, and Thieving.

It's pretty much confirmed that they will have stats or boost you in some way.

 

Depending on how long it takes to obtain useful rewards (yes, I know that Jagex says we can take advantage right away... but I'm not going to spend all of my points on an aura of herpderp when I can get something useful by waiting a few months/years/decades), I will probably never buy any of the cosmetic items or emotes.

I hope they mean you can buy every possible aura from just one month of membership (or at least, the best ones in each category or similar).

I'm hoping this was more of a sampler than an actual preview. I would like more creative auras brought out on release, but since it's in its beginnings I can't really impose these expectations. And, speaking for myself, I'm not overreacting. Don't say "everyone" or absolute words because it comes off insulting to most people.

I don't really care much about these costumes or emotes so I guess I'm going for the aura then! :thumbsup:

Okay, three things:

 

1. how many times can you use a aura, can you use it on different items?

 

2. if used on a ammo for a ranged wep what happens when that set of ammo runs out?

 

3. what happens if you die with something with an aura, does the other person get it if in pvp, can it be looted, does it dissapear on death?

I once met a man named Jesus at a Home Depot. Is this the Messiah returned at last?

 

And i once beat someone named Jesus in a chess game. Does that mean I'm smarter than the messiah?

BOW TO THE NEW MESSIAH

Why do you assume you attach it to an item? I know that's kinda what it looks like, but they will have their own equipment slot.

I was thinking that the equipment slot would be for the different outfits and the auras would be attached.

I think its going to be more like a ring/small item where if you wear it the weapon you have equiped will start glowing.

 

Speculation YAAAAAAY
