    There are diminishing returns for premium players in regards to going vip

    The longer a prem stays premium and the more he/she buys (perminately)
    the less vip is worth to them.

    why pay 15 a month for races and classes you OWN, same for adventure areas..
    if you already own them.

    So to say...well, just go VIP wink wink...is stupid for a well invested prem player.
    Thats like saying...pay 15 a month for elete/hard open privilages, because all
    the rest of the stuff we already have.

    First off, a smart VIP, who actually intends to remain VIP isn't paying by the month unless there are financial concerns. Most of us are paying $9.99/mo., taking advantage of the quarterly or semi-anmual rate. The best price is $99.99/yr. if you can swing it (I cannot, yet). This drops the rate to $8.33/mo.

    Figuring at the semi-annual rate I consider myself to be paying about $5.00 for the game and the balance pays the standard price for the 500TP I get every month.

    This thread really seems to me like its calling for more VIP bonuses so its more valuable to everyone.

    It's a stealth take over

    -or-

    Reverse psychology at its finest.

    Either way I'm in favor of giving both groups more love. Problem is how do you give VIP's love without causing an imbalance to the game? Premium is "easier" because they have to buy everything just to do what VIP's get for subscription.

    I would say just increase the free TPs VIPs get every-month from 500 TPs to 700 TPs or more. This won't make the game p2w and I bet this will attract many more players.

    I dont see this happening, from Turbines monkey making point of view. A more likely thing, imo, is bonus TPs,
    awarded at milestones of continuous months of subscribing. Say at at 3, 6, 12, 18, 24. The bonus points will be larger for each milestone. Other ideas for making VIPs feel more Important are
    1. random gifts, ether items or TPs.
    2. Something similar to the "Free item of the week" but just for VIPs
    3. Cosmetic items that are exclusive to VIPs, at least for a period of time
    4. Have a special event, such is Risa, opened to VIPs a day early.
