With increasing the prices of bonds and th keys this will give ppl less incentive to buy keys and get membership, allowing bond prices to rise. While More $$ is good for Jagex This might discourage others from getting membership or buying th keys. Question is Will the price rise mean less consumers? The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.

TH keys have always been terrible in terms of value proposition, so I highly doubt that the key buyers are going to reconsider buying more keys in the future with the increased price, since they haven't cared about it so far. (And let's be honest, if TH continues its current pace, it'll still get more brokenly OP than before.)

But as for new players/people paying just for membership? Yeah, they're probably going to struggle even more to get new players, and existing ones are surely going to reconsider buying membership again if they let it expire for more than those 14 days.

yes but jagex doesnt care. theyd rather have 2 customers that are pro mtx and will spend money no matter what then 5 anti mtx who will only spend rl money for membership IF that

Not really since you can buy TH keys without Bonds and Jagex can run more and/or sweeten deals on key packages. They can also improve the payout of TH. They may even make TH more appealing for the same real money price with much better items.

The rate hike is mainly on the membership side. Bonds have to go up in price to adjust for the rise of membership prices. However, if you intend to farm gold to buy bonds to use on TH keys you will be negatively affected too. :D:D:D

If they see key sales go down they will just make the promos more OP to compensate :) LEVEL BOOKS are coming! :D

Shut the hell up, don't give them ideas.


That's not any new idea. It actually happened to MTX every time after a price increase the last few years. :D:D:D

Sort of better xp or other forms of payout after the price hike in keys in June, I suppose, but not instant level boost and such.

At least, accordingly to Jagex's Company House filing, they expected MTX to rise gradually, for instance, from this year's 36% of total revenue to 41%, then gradually go to 50% in a couple of years and then pull back slightly to 47%.

So, yes, higher % of revenue and profits from MTX the coming few years to catch up with the rest of the peers from the game industry, but it won't be instant shoot to the moon. :)
