Is this really what you guys do to RuneScape gold people who have backed you for over a decade and a half? People who have supported you via all the other purchases, and promotions throughout? I was willing to wait for delayed content, broken promises, significant mechanics changes, bonus loot/boss/etc weekends drastically devaluing loot and the merit of getting pets/achievements I grinded weeks to get and helped friends and clannies get, the MTX spam, and other sources of revenue. Yet you're willing to spit in my face over $3.50 a month?
Jagex has netted... a lot off of me, and I really don't regret that. But could've made A LOT more off me new job with way higher salary was the main reason I haven't been playing. But nope. Gotta be miserly over membership fees instead. Mobile has been a blast, and I was greatly enjoying it even dropping for bonds constantly because my RNG luck is cursed, and it was fun anyhow going at it with people that are that damn good at utilizing their loadouts to get those occasional times you're dropping them in a 3/4 hit.
But instead of showing love back to us who have enjoyed the game so much, and given you so much back in financial resources, you guys want to charge AAA prices and stiff your loyal player base thinking it will benefit your masters with level 1 mining. It won't. I was genuinely thinking of trying to mop up in Solomon's store things I lacked and diving back heavily into RS3. Guess what? I can't see that if you guys are willing to just stiff me over something this minor.
***I don't think I should be exempt just because I spent more old school runescape gold I think anyone who has been a supporter of you guys for so long shouldn't be hosed like this. Most people can't afford to blow money on a video game like I can and have. Jacking up a price on people who have been loyal for so long, is a demonstrably stupid business practice. It doesn't matter if they've just been a $5/month supporter since the RS1 days who can barely afford it or an occasional MTX cow like me. It's why I've helped clannies out from time to time. We love the game, and feeling like Jagex doesn't care if we stick around or not because we couldn't/didn't pay/play for a month or two because of RL commitments is frustrating and just plain sad.
