Vip players getting various benefits, which is absolutely(!) justified, they might even deserve more, but that is not the topic here.
But isn't it maybe time to also thank the premium players, which saved the game from closing in 2009? And I am not(!) talking about those premium accounts who invested 5 bucks to buy one pack or class. I am talking about those premium members, who bought every single adventure pack, expansion, class, race and account upgrade. Maybe it is time to grant them a little bonus or status between premium and vip, maybe +3-5% xp when vip get +10%, so they do not feel that subclass as I think they do now. But maybe I am just dreaming. And it might be hard to implement. But it would also force premium player who almost own everything to buy everything possible.
I would also pay for some of the perks vip get, like changing destinies wo running to fatespinner etc. if you only provide them as unlock. I even would go vip if I start to play ddo from the scratch. But I will not go vip since I already own all content, so that will never happen, maybe I am too rational or bullheaded. Just a few thoughts. Great fan.
