Anyone good at maths? Would be interesting to know how much that would mean I've paid per month if I last the distance. I was in game on day one and am a life member - reckon by 2017 that'll work out as quite the bargain, hehe.

No no no no no. I paid a life subscription on day one - I don't pay a monthly fee. Can't even remember how much it was now - maybe £100? So for every month I stay, it gets cheaper Smile

So, if it was £100, that means that if I stayed 10 months it would've essentially cost me £10 per month, if I stay 20 months it comes down to £5 per month etc. Wish I could remember what it cost and when game started but it's no biggy.

So if we hang in there 'til 2017, it will have worked out at £10 per year, or 83p per month. Bargain!
