    Hi all
    Are their any tournaments for non members? if not why not?

    A non-subscriber has max. 6 games, so it would be difficult for nearly all formats (even in a duel sometimes you come into a group with two palyers giving you a total of four new games).
    Sometimes there are tournaments for noon-subscribers, where you can even win a subscription.

    Could the site be altered so no subscribers could play in a tournament yet still have a limit on games and site access??

    Let's face it, it's not a matter of breaking the bank to stump up the required $30 odd if you're so so keen on getting FULLY involved here...pester 'site ideas' if you're of a number that would prefer quarterly payments but pay you must to take advantage of the myriad tournies on offer...there are lots of benefits to a subscription and if you don't like it within 14days, get your money back..
    That's my RHP advertising 'duties' done, I should get paid for this

    it's $40 now. some people are probably still playing the old price of $20 if they're still using the same card, obviously there's a lot paying the not so older price of $30 that you mentioned. hardly fair imo, there should be one price tier for all subscriptions. new or old.

    there used to be a monthly sub option, for $5 for something, obviously you could abuse it. pay once load up on games and not renew for months. they should bring back a similar thing with a games cap though, for people unwilling to commit $40 for a full year but who want to experience some of the benefits of a subscription. say $10 for 3 months with a cap of 30 games or something.

    Why do you want subscribers to be unable to play in tournaments?

    As you are a non sub and UK based a few simple questions

    Do you have the cheapest possible broadband package?

    If not, why not change and subscribe to RHP using the money saved?

    Did you go for a few drinks at the weekend?

    If so why not cut back on 1 drink per nightout and subscribe to RHP using the money saved?

    There are plenty of ways to save the few £'s it costs to be a subscriber so rather than moan about wanting this and that as a non sub, pay up and get the perks.

    Why?

    If you pay your car insurance you get different rates the longer you are claim free.

    No difference with what RHP are offering - its a long term loyalty discount.

    that's an unfair comparison, you get your car insurance cheaper with no claims because you're costing the insurance company less than those who have made previous claim/s. the service on rhp is the same for all subscribers regardless of how long they've been on the site, why should you or anyone else pay less just because you found the site before someone else? it's unfair on the potential new subscribers who may feel dishearten by the fact that there's people paying less for the same service as them.

    and it's not a 'long term loyalty discount', as soon as your card expires you're back to paying full price. for you this could happen next year while someone who joined two years after you who also got the lower price will continue to pay less as their card has a few more years before it reaches its expiration date.

    your favorite take-away that you visit often increases its prices, you enter at the same time as a new customer. do you get the old prices as a sign of loyalty or do you get the same new price as the new customer?

    the payment structure on rhp is ridiculous.
