Not worth it if your on either of the old rates unless you value the extra stuff that high.

The 150 k loyalty points is tempting but looking at the rest of it it's kinda meh. 

 

I care little for pets because I find they just get in the way of me skilling and cause more misclicks than I already normally do.

 

One more extra spin on the SoF isn't that enticing. I budget $5 of every paycheck I get towards buying 450 which generally lasts me through all the promos that I would like to participate in for the entire year combined with dailies and random rewards.

 

2400 total world is as VIP as I really care for as it is.

 

Cosmetic items are also kinda meh, I really only wanted 3 outfits (one for mage, melee, and range) and I have those already. 

 

In other words I won't be joining this year.

I will be buying this for sure. Even though the 'rewards' are not that great I still think it is worth, especially since it is cheap for membership.

Except it isn't cheap for membership. If your at the current ratse $7.95 it works out to be almost the same, if you have either old rate $5 or $5.95, then it is an awful deal.

My bad. I still did have had the 'new' rates though. And I still think it is worth it, even though most of you guys seems to disagree.

You can always just toggle it off. I will get the gold pack again this year for sure :)

I really want to know why this package comes with pet pigs, lol. Did Mod Mark have anything to do with it again?

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

I got it because the cost of membership was slightly cheaper than what I was already paying, and because it largely caught me up in terms of Auras. I quit playing right after auras came out and recently returned, so while other people had hundreds of thousands of points I had none. This at least lets me get a couple nifty auras.

It doesn't sound like I'll be able to toggle off others' badges. Pmods and titles are bad enough, thank you very much. It would be much better if Jagex wasn't slapping RWT options on every little thing, that goes for everything already in the game and every new release.

From what I understand your membership will stack. Once one runs out it will revert to prior membership paid. (For instance, if you were ever to somehow use two 30-day membership cards at once, they would accumulate.)

 

At least, that was the response I got last time when I emailed them before picking up the Gold membership last year.

They've been shoving RWT stuff down our throat consistently since SoF came out and constantly since Solomon's. It's been over a year of this now so I'm not sure why this was the breaking point for you. You can always just not buy the stuff they're putting out there.

while 2013's items were actually worth going for (2012 was "okay", and they kind of gave away the "better" version of paladin in that beginner's quest), if you already have them from your premier membership last time, there's really no point to signing on since you'll get 2014's items if you wait until the next cycle

 

the loyalty points, while perhaps controversial due to the frontloading of said points, can be said to represent the extra loyalty required to sign on to this game for another 12 months without actually bothering to see if it's worth staying on, although given the upswing in world events and the increasing amount of "endgame" content plus the addition of what feels like the last skill of runescape, is perhaps a ticket to some kind of closure, although that is probably wishful thinking

 

that being said, you're still going to miss out on the pet if you don't get silver membership (which is a good halfway meeting point for collectors)

Not necessarily. This package doesn't have the promotional items from 2012 and before, the next one might very well not have those for 2014.
