So you're raising the price of VIPS, and yet I think most would agree this year for VIPS has not completely fulfilled the value we paid for VIP?

Not to mention most of the updates throughout the year have been very underwhelming, meaning that we mainly didn't really any real value from it. Some would argue that the VIP could save money throughout the year, and this is true, but the fact that you sold VIP status outside of its "exclusive" timeframe devalued the VIP package a significant amount.

Prices from last year:



Prices this year:


(Note it does say: You can find out exactly what benefits the new Premier Club will offer later this week.)

Now, I'd like to make this clear, this is not a rant post, this is simply a post stating how I feel, and what I've rapidly seen people express themselves towards VIP membership.

Before Jagex release what benefits the new Premier Club could offer, I think we could point out what we as users could improve upon the benefits of VIP as I feel from my personal experience the rewards (from the vault guard in the grand exchange) had been very linear and catered towards the updates, when I was not actually interested in some of them. This means that I had no choice on what I was getting, and I had to miss out on the extra perks and I was not fulfilling my benefits of being a VIP member, and this makes me feel a little underwhelmed. I think these types of rewards cater to specific players, for example, Solaks VIP items, this definitely could be improved, allowing the others to actually feel like their included in some way because after all, they are paying for this package.

Cosmetics:

I think there is nothing wrong with reusing cosmetic items at all, Overwatch does it and many other games do it but add new cosmetics, don't just reuse old items, you need some way to cater to both old and new/ other players who have and have not claimed them.

Improve the monthly draw

I don't think I have even heard anything about this. If you're reimplementing this, please make a post on the front page each month who/ what they won. I think Each month Jagex should allow everyone a fair chance by posting a deadline to enter the giveaway on their Homepage to a specific forum that only VIP members can enter.

What does the VIP World give you that no other world does?

Maybe add something to this? It doesn't have to be perks, it could be something we have never seen before? Excite us Jagex.

In-Game Badge (Star)

I have a big issue with this Badge. Consistency needs to be added here. I think if you're buying the membership VIP Package you should be awarded the appropriate star.

Gold package = Gold Star
Silver package = Silver star
Bronze = Bronze star

Other peoples experience has been In my personal experience, most people don't like seeing this appear in their chat window, perhaps change the star to an easier eye appeal.

Premier Club-Exclusive Q&As

If you're going to include this into the VIP package, please full-fill it. Maybe backstage Twitch streams with Mods access to VIP members only?

Price

The largest concern to most people is whether it's worth paying for the package or not, with the price of normal 12-month membership (£62.99) and VIP package £54.99 you save £8.00 total for the entire year, although I think this will be fine for some people, I do think to dish out £54.00 for the year for some people should give them more reason to purchase the VIP Package.

As of right now, I cannot give you any more information than this as I have no idea what we are getting in the VIP Package.

Selling the VIP Package in the middle of the year? AKA the Summer Special 2018

During Summer 2018 a lot of us are curious why we even purchase the Premier Club now that if it could possibly be bought again in the summer of 2019, I think we all felt that it wasn't "exclusive" anymore when some of us paid a full amount for the package when we could have paid half then and the other half later on, although we didn't that this would be available again during the next part of the year, we all felt, a little conned, well at least I did!

It does make you wonder if Summer Special will have a re-release of the upcoming towards the Gold Package exclusive benefits, in both terms of prices and what "exclusive" content will be offered and then later released again at reduced prices next year. I think this is worth keeping in mind until a Jagex mod will say "we won't sell premier benefits again throughout the year".

Agree. The perks are average, at best, but the price is in the high end. I will most likely not renew my VIP this year. (And if I can't go back to my grandfathered rate I may reconsider if I should keep playing.) 114/120 thief, no Ralph.
