No one is permanently losing the old rate unless they lapse membership. Kimberly is talking about getting 12 months for higher than the grandfather rate, but her poor choice of lose effectively made everyone confused.

The only reason they're doing this is to lure people into buying 1yr membership so players will be tempted to keep playing (it feels like they've wasted their money otherwise) rather than quit.

It's not just Kim's miswording that's making people question if they're going to lose their current membership rate, the RSOF topic on this is full of people asking the same thing. It's at 10 pages so far with no official answer.

Check out my blog to read the Adventures of a Big Damn (F2P) Hero.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

That doesn't mean it's not a great deal, particulary for people without the grandfather price. Every single subscription/Microtransaction bundles in the world work like that. You get more bang for your buck the higher your commitment is. If you dno't want to buy the 1y bundle, then don't get get the slightly mroe expensive normal rate, everybody wins.

I've been paying prepaid for years (without ever going f2p in between) and I still have the old rate.

If you have a credit card auto subbing for you then it buys new when you have a few days left.

So in other words if you buy 1yr pack then your autosub will do nothing for a year but start subbing again after.

I'm very positive you won't lose your old rate.

I believe you lose old rate when going f2p for longer than a week or so.

This basically says after the Premier period is over, everything goes back to normal.

All this really confirms is your existing days of paid membership will be stored until you use up the years membership from the package, nothing about cost of membership.
Gold package sounds amazing but i'm still dubious until I know 100% that my old rate will be honoured.

I'm still paying 4,60 euros a month as well just like many here.
12 months cost me 55,20 EUR in comparison to 64,95 for the gold package.
I wouldn't mind paying ahead for a full year like I did before many times, but not when I have to pay 10-15% extra for some cosmetics and a daily spin...
They haven't made it clear either if this deal would upgrade my 4,60 to 6,95 a month.
That would include a price change from 55,20 to 83,40 EUR for the year after that. I assume the worst case scenario, which in my case would cost me 37,95 EUR in 2 years extra, or over 8 months I can play extra with my current price.

I've been paying $5 for like 8 years. Even with buying cards in between I've kept the rate. I even got hacked, had subscription cancelled, and emailed jagex to get it back a month later. So I'm not worried.

Peace,
Vann

1. Like it has been said so many many times before, your old rate will not be affected by purchasing the Gold Membership, if you were paying 4.60 before, you will be paying 4.60 again after the year, should you decide to purchase the Gold Membership. You will NOT lose your old rate.

2. Not everything in SGS are cosmetic, the 2000 rune coines are enough to buy all 5 bank boosters.

Loyalty points are awarded to me 3 days after my direct debit when my 30th day of membership comes around, DD takes payment on the 27th day.
LP should theoretically be awarded every 30th day your a member. it has nothing to do with payment date.


I am pretty certain it is based on the date you sign up for Loyalty Program, not the 30th.

Hasn't been confirmed yet by Jagex that you won't lose it, it is assumed by a large part of the player base.
What Jagex did confirm was that bank boosters could be bought with Loyalty Points. Still waiting for that day to come....

I can confirm you won't lose it. I bought a 6 months membership for 4 months deal last christmas from Jagex, my subscription fees after the 6 months were the same as before.

Unless the Bank Boosters you can buy from LP stacks with the Bank boosters you buy from RC, I wont be spending a single point of LP for bank space when it eventually gets released.

With the $5.95 I am paying right now, I am paying $3.55 extra for the 2000 rune coins, which sums to about 30c more each month. I took that over waiting for LP bank space, because I needed the bank space now, not several months down the line.

The gold package is pretty sweet of all the 'vanity items' all that is missed is Golden Katana from the Amazon US wallet game buy thing, the Ice Mask from last years 'buy 2 for 1 membership now and get this mask free' thing and the Carnival Headdress given out free whenever that event was.

Carnival headdress wasn't even a game card item, so not really sure why you included that in there.

The only reason they're doing this is to lure people into buying 1yr membership so players will be tempted to keep playing (it feels like they've wasted their money otherwise) rather than quit.

Yeah, good thing that isn't a bad thing.

I didn't mean the date the 30th, I meant my DD goes out on my 27th day of membership, and my LP's get awarded on the 30th day of membership, that being said my DD could be the 24th September making my LPs the 27th September as an example. Sorry for any confusion in my first post
