There's no promise that you'd stick around after coming back from a hiatus.


A person who came back from a hiatus to experience a very new, very large update has a higher chance of resubscribing than one that is already subscribed for 12 consecutive months and was probably going to keep it that way.

And in the context of a beta, that shouldn't matter either way.

That's a neat way to thank consecutive members. They definitely deserve some praise on this. Yes, consecutive members will tend to keep paying, but you still don't want to piss them off. This was a good move, I think.


Still think it should be members who have X months on record and an active membership on the 1st.



good idea. still keep it at 12 months but it shouldnt be consecutive. that would allow a lot more people to acces the beta which means more bugs found and what not.
i dont see how restricting Beta testing to consecutive subscribers and 50k ppl is beneficial when it could easily have 200k + testing it

Keep in mind the cost of running servers. In addition, current players are most likely to have a better understanding of the current state of the game.

50k interested people who have not been members for 1 year is quite a large amount.

Be surprised if anyone who wants to doesn't get access.
Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

I'm confused. If someone is going to be subscribed and will continue, how can one exceed the other? At the very least, they are equal. You can't go higher than a 100% chance.

And in the context of a beta, that shouldn't matter either way.


Well, and it doesn't, does it? Members can play every weekend, along with 50,000 other players who are selected for continuous testing and the year+'ers.

Server costs for MMOs are minimal. And the current state of the game doesn't matter when you're testing an overhaul.

If somebody is subscribed 12 months in a row, chances are they'd be subscribed even without the beta.
If somebody recently came back from a long hiatus, chances are they'll be more inclined to keep their subscription after trying the beta. Or less inclined to unsubscribe, depending on your point of view.

If the people who will subscribe regardless continue to do so...how exactly does that automatically mean they're entitled to less perks? So far, everything that Jagex has developed on promotional sides has favored new growth. What I'm trying to say is it's nice that they're paying attention to those who have stuck with the game continuously for a period of time. Keeping your current customers happy and drawing in new/returning customers is a balancing act, and this restores some much-needed balance to those who have been continuously paying.

I'm not sure exactly what there is to get upset over.

I'm not upset. I do have an account that has been subscribed for quite some time. But I do feel like the requirement could be expanded to include people who have maintained many months of subs in the past.

The graphical updates are not related to the combat rework update. They just continue to update a part of RuneScape graphics with every update. Think Rimmington, Gnome stronghold, tzhaar area...

Didn't buy sof spins. If anything, you'll be ostracized for your disloyalty to the mighty Overlord.

More excited for the graphic updates than the combat update, to be honest. :/ Looks nice, I guess. And I also like how they're rewarding their loyal members with the full beta and whatnot. Neat little move by Jagex there.

I like getting rewarded for having an unlapsed membership for the past seven years; I'll admit I was feeling a little left out what with all the new subscriber and card-redeeming benefits. ^.^ And I think that since every member gets access on the weekends regardless, it should be just fine.

Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

also says how long on ur loyalty page.

ive got 11 months :ohnoes: :ohnoes:

says my next payout (loyalty ponts) is in 4 days so hell ya ill get to BETA test :thumbsup:

whens BETA open??


Be careful not to mix how long you've been a registered member in the loyalty shop vs how long you've been a member. Unless you started being a member at the same time as you signed up for the loyalty shop, it won't be the same. :P Mine also says 11 months, but I've been a member since 2007. The loyalty shop has been out for 11 months.

Also agree with Sorator.

If you post on the RSOF, it says how long you've been a member for under your avatar image.

I'll be getting in as soon as it opens. |^_^|

Mine says July 2008, but I've taken several breaks since then. Most recently in december for around ten days, and then in August for around a week. I'm not sure if that's consecutive membership.

It is, as you get a 14 day cooldown before it breaks your chain and removes the "member since" from below your name.

(Atleast I think it's a 14 day cooldown. Couldn't find it anywhere. I would assume they will go by the same counter as the one which displays your time on the RSOF though.)
