We are considering introducing a quarterly subscription option. If you are not a subscriber, we would appreciate your feedback on this.
- I am happy with my current ad supported free membership.
- I would be interested in a quarterly membership, even if the total annual cost was slightly more.
- If I choose to subscribe, I would opt for the current annual subscription option
Like most responders here, I am happy enough with the current arrangement.
There was a non-sub trial tournament some time ago, which I entered. Found myself with six parallel games (and IIRC eight to begin with, as I had some games running when the tournament began), instead of my usual three or four, and my attention plummeted, and naturally, so did my performance. And, unfortunately, my enjoyment. So I have no reason to get a subscription for the extra games.
What's left? Clans, sieges, ladders, none of which I am missing with great sadness; forum avatars and titles and similar details, which would be amusing, but are hardly worth shedding a tear over; and vacations. Being able to plan a vacation would be nice, but up 'till now I've been able to do without. I plan mine quite a while in advance anyway, so I can plan my games around them.
tempt me is if the &*#^#& banks would not add a surcharge to international payments, so that if I pay by money order or cheque (no cc or paypal here, mate, and certainly not over the "trusted" net to the "trusted" old USofA), either I or RHP has to pay 30% of the subscription fee to what are, after all, legalised fraudsters. But I don't see that changing any time soon.
Perhaps I'll drop a postal order in the mail next time I'm over in Blighty, but I've no idea when that will be.
