Okay, so I haven't thrown up an idea in quite some time:
How about introducing a second tier of Iron Membership in Achaea at, say $34.99? For people who really want to invest in the game and reap the rewards quicker? Just as an illustrative example:
*5 Lessons per Day per Character when you login (Same)
*100 Bound Membership Credits per month
* 5 Additional Bound Membership Credits per month which caps at 75 credits per month (rather than 50)
* 15% Bonus on all credit purchases (currently 10%)
* 5% cumulative XP Bonus every month which caps at [I want to say 50% but that actually sounds quite a lot] more than the current
If balance is needed, perhaps after hitting the current Elite Membership Cap, the increment slows down. So 5 credits per month up to 50, then an extra 2 credits per month up to 75.
I suspect this will be a love-it-or-hate-it idea!
Tvistor: If that was a troll, it was masterful.
I take my hat off to you.
