    Default Free gold roll for VIP? It's unfair!

    I decided to become a premium user and purchased lots of TP when I bought MotU Expansion. at that time, the exclusive benefit of VIP users is availability to quick-access Heroic Elite. I could give up to be a VIP user and lots feature, so I took all things, shared bank, challenges and most packs of quest, Races and Classes, and so on. It's enough for me even if I didn't get that VIP exclusive feature.(and giving 500 TP per month)

    later some months, developers gave a new benefit to VIP users, 10% exp bonus - same to endless 10% exp pot... Well, until the time, I was not angered, just gotten envy of VIP users.

    But for now, FREE GOLD DICE for VIP users? are you kidding? are you gonna making all premium users mad who has their reasons to give up becoming VIP? I purchased about over 200 dollars, and It could make me a great VIP user to play the game well, but I passed it by my thought. but It's something getting me.. eh.. well... hah.

    It's not that I don't agree your plan to give a new benefit to VIP users, but at least I just want to take some reasonable reward for becoming a HEAVY premium user, and other ppl would do also I believe.

    as well, It's not that I suggest every premium users should take the reward. I'm saying about heavy premium users who could become a VIP user enough but gave up it.

    If live, VIP would take 48(12*4 weeks) Astral Shards per month, and that can be calcuated to 360 TP(7.5 TP per one AS. the ratio is from DDO store). It's not that suck.

    If you like a perk that the VIP subscription gives, than go sign up. I am happy that VIP is getting love after all this time.

    if I spent $200 on the same things that VIPs get for their $100 sub, I would re-think my strategy.

    I think Turbine must be realizing how unimportant VIPs have felt the past couple years and giving them some perks like the gold roll is very much needed. the bigger issue they still need to work on is the part about access to packs, races and classes. perks are nice, but lets focus more on the meat of the sub.

    How is it unfair? Anyone can access it just be VIP its a little perk and helps make up for other things. And I haven't seen the news about it except for this thread

    Boo frickety hoo. Really? You think that vip is too special? Vip has been getting steadily less "i" since f2p went live. They add a tiny perk (which isn't even on live yet btw and probably won't even make live) and you get all boo hoo? Good luck with that.

    VIP still means 'Very Ignored Person'.

    Good they have an advantage over Premium or F2P regarding this. Still, it is not something I consider being worth for subscribing a VIP account.

    Default VIP still a bad investment

    Since VIP give up money every month for an ever increasingly, bugged game Warner Brothers had to give something to VIP.

    Well, I've thought VIP is good enough, but It looks like not in fact as you guys said... anyway, my main topic is that heavy premium users should take more benefit unlike normal users. I didn't say I don't agree developers' plan to put more features on VIP, but at least I'd like to see something as I gave up becoming VIP when starting DDO first.

    You'd know VIP is much efficient for new players on DDO. It's much powerful at starting game newly, and cheaper than lots TP to get all things. but lots TP is high cost, so difficult to purchase, and it makes ppl to play the game difficult.

    Of course, I agree "lots TP" is more efficient than VIP if time goes. but what I'd like to say is always that.

    I'm premium and while I'd kind of like to see Turbine reward those of us who have made a 'significant' expenditure, I'm not going to begrudge the subscribers what Turbine gives them.

    Yes, that's the point.

    I'm sure it will come live.

    They copy/pasted daily dice to lotro, but they gave their vips free golden roll per week, now they're copy/pasting again :]

    Too bad they haven't gotten around to copy/pasted the Visual character creation/cosmetic system and the far more competent Crafting system.

    As for VIP getting a new Minor perk...good for them. Personally I think VIP is a misnomer though there not anymore special than anyone else its just a different payment option it should be Free, A-La-Carte and Subscription

    Do you also complain when someone who subscribes to the same magazine which you buy at the newsstand not only pays less than you, but also gets the magazine delivered directly to their home?

    Didn't think so.

    I don't think my $10 per month is a bad investment, and I don't mind paying for the expansion. Turbine has given me a game that I routinely spend 15-20 hours per week in. I feel I'm getting my money's worth. I used to pay over $100 oer month for Cable TV. (most Americans do this), and most normally grumble, but are never as visciious in their whining as people are about this game that costs a mere fraction.

    I've dumped cable TV, and don't miss it. I would miss DDO if that was gone. So...I gladly pay my monthly sub fee to upport this game that gives me so much enjoyment.

    +1 well said sir!

    I have been VIP ever since I started playing the game nearly a year ago (more or less), I think had maybe a week or two at most when I wasn't VIP and have been VIP ever since and I sincerely think the cost is nothing compared to other things these days. I buy the 3 month option which equals about £21 GBP which to me is a frickin' bargain for a game I play everyday and get a lot of enjoyment out of. Yes it's bugged to hell but development costs time and money so I like think I am doing my bit when I renew my sub every 3 months.

    This is worth getting mad over but still not worth subcribing over I take it. At best it's a paultry benefit to encourage participation in the use of astral shards.
