And long time subscribers will probably get shafted by getting nothing.

Well... you are paying more than $5 a month for the year long package. However, that 12 month gold package is actually a steal tbh.

$6.32 per month? Tempting especially with that katana.

Seems like an awesome deal for ukers.
£45 works to:
£3.75 a month vs £3.20-£3.50(?) a month.
And that package contains a good £35 of runecoins, £15-£20 ish of spins and most of the cosmetic gamecard items that u had to spend a buttload to get.

Added Muggi's post to the original and added information to the topic title. Please try to help out next time you create a discussion by putting a bit more than a picture to discuss :P

To be honest I'm not bothered by this at all, it's no different than the promotional crap for the gift cards. But hey! They brought back year-long memberships! *dance*

At least the in game bonuses are cosmetic. Still, I'm curious about the Paladin outfit. That's new, right?

Wow, I always used to buy 12 month packages so this looks great for me.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

You can subscribe with these packages with a credit card. Unless you're talking about the fact that credit card subscribers were screwed out on the items previously in which case ignore this.

Also, I assumed the katana is the same as the original membership card promotion, but that's the ornate katana, this one is the decorative katana.

Requires giving up the loyalty rate to do this. Whether its worth it is up for debate. (in regards to year-long purchases)

You're basically paying $15 (the difference between the loyalty rate and the month-rate with the 12month package) for 2k runecoins and a chance to shake Mod Mark's hand. Yeah you get one extra spin per day, not really worth it

Pardon my negativity, but this smells of a desperation move from a failing company. At least, that's my opinion on the matter. :(

...How is it desperation?

This is normal business crap and hell, I would have thought a kettle-banging die-hard like yourself would enjoy the fact that they brought back a good thing they got rid of (membership purchase for a year).

(EDIT: p.s.: if you're going to post and not expect to be a part of the discussion, why even post?)

The 12-month is a pretty good deal considering you get 2000 runecoins with it. Of course you're banking on the assumption you'll still be playing for the next year.
