    Disappointing. Is this a mobile game now?

    Also, which perk gets me better server performance?

    "You won't lose a level when your character falls in battle."

    Does this mean you don't lose experience when you die, or does it mean you can only get down to 0% of a level (before rezzing)? Or does it mean something else?

    This is how you show that you don't appreciate paying customers to entice more people. Sweeten the normal monthly sub with perks. Don't build a new monthly sub system.

    By paying money for the perks you want to buy.

    I can tolerate monetization through cosmetic loot crates.

    I am not fond of monetization through in-game power bonuses. (I can understand a 10% membership experience bonus but nothing beyond that).

    So, like, whatever to everything except the following: "Enables an additional slot in your inventory."

    That NEEDS to be two slots. My OCD can't handle one slot just hanging out there on its own. It's just not right. I'm tweaking just thinking about it. Hold me.

    I already spend enough on a 22 year old game. The fact that we are paying subscribers should get us these perks without an extra fee. You want to push people away keep doing crap like this

    neat. any ETA on when they go live?

    also, that one extra inventory slot is gonna drive me nuts too, odd choice!

    Conceptually, paying to gain raid currency at an accelerated rate makes me uncomfortable. I don't think paying money beyond the standard sub should accelerate end game progression. In fairness, XP potions kind of already do that, though non-evo XP is fairly trivial to acquire at end game.

    That said, sub prices haven't increased in a long time, so I can appreciate trying to add some perks to soften the blow vs a flat price increase. These certainly could be a lot more pay-to-win than they are.

    from someone who has played EQ since the beginning I have to say this is a terrible sales tactic. It will only go down hill from here GL.

    Marketing failure in the making.

    is this the official start of going full pay 2 win? Is it finally time to walk away from this game after 22 years? I thought destroying the way taunt worked was the worst decision made in 15 years, but someone said "hold my beer" apparently...this is very disheartening for the game.
