Increase the membership prices in year 2020.
- Double membership prices, for example 14 euro per month instead of 7.
- Same price per bond but double the numbers of bonds needed, for example 4 bonds instead of 2 for 29 days membership.

Purpose is increased Jagex resources to increase the:
- Enforcement of the rules
- Player support
- Account security

The increased price itself would also automaticly counter RWT because gold farmer bots would have a higher investment cost to run and longer pay off time to just pay for its membership cost before making profit.

The OSRS community in general is older than what it was in 2007 and a lot of people can thus afford higher membership prices. 14 euro for a month of OSRS is quite cheap in comparison to 14 euro for ONE restaurant dinner or 14 euro for ONE entry cost at the night club, and then 7 euro per drink.

The increased membership prices would improve the gaming experience from OSRS and extend its lifespan. Ty.

Actually, it would increase their income as cheaters would have to buy more gold from them to play the game.

Currently, if you are not a hard core pvmers, it takes up to 50 hours to pay for 2 week membership. IF you double that, jagex will lose money as a large percentage of players will be forced to quit.
Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

Well, yeah because PvM is skilled. Why should unskilled players be rewarded? You'd still be able to pay for membership with irl cash. The only losers here are gold farmers. Why are you defending cheaters?

Are you saying you only make 80k/hour? Dont assume that everyone that is not a hardcore pvmer is that slow at making money.

Im a shitty skiller but i made like 400-500k/hour crafting nature runes on my main at one point without even being that efficient, and thats from 1 rune/ essence. At double nats and being efficient its probably around 1m/hr.
Dont make easily botted activities such as skilling profitable

Support. An increase in membership cost might very well create a better game and community. =)

I've only "considered" those an increase would take away (many of which if they were gone, in my own personal opinion, would make for a "better" community and game.. bots for example.. could be wiped out with such an increase.. unless you believe bots make a good community, ofc).

No support for raising prices, I remember when there was a vote for OSRS coming back and to be possibly free if it reached a certain number and it damn near passed.

Quit crying that others do your job better than you lmao. Are you also one of those incompetent nubnubs who cries about outsourcing because others are more competitive?
