Changing wiki page to reference latest tweet regarding subscription[edit source]

I think we need to change the "It will not be a recurring subscription", as the latest images by andrew himself on twitter show-cases that it is indeed a time variant subscription. -

"365 days left", the article listed as source reference is older than that which andrew has posted on his twitter himself, with no additional clarification it is misleading to state one or the other.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Demonly (talk) on 13:10, 23 March 2024 (UTC).

To further quote the article: "One of the key differences is we're probably not going to do auto-recurring payments," There is no reference to it not being a recurring premium pass, just no "auto-recurring payments" which is vastly different than having to purchase it every time you run out, this could also potential be a hint at there being a bond type system similar to runescape, and further reading into the article "Everyone's got their millions of different streaming service subscriptions," Gower explains. "The Netflix subscriptions, Amazon Prime subscriptions, people are getting a certain degree of subscription fatigue. So we've decided to just make it a non-recurring payment. You can just buy a pass, get the premium, it's not like a commitment that you're then gonna have to pay that forever." still doesn't state anything about having to buy it again after time runs out. Just that it's not a commitment that you have to pay forever because he doesn't like how recurring subscriptions are setup to be predatory against people (they auto renew)  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Demonly (talk) on 13:22, 23 March 2024 (UTC).

// End of OP

Adding on to this, I absolutely agree that we should adjust how this is written or perhaps exclude it all together for now as it seems that we don't entirely know how it will function. It does appear that it will be a Premium Pass rather than some sort of renewing Subscription or Membership system, which leads me to the possibility that the Pass might be something that lasts 1 year versus potentially the design iteration in the interview being something that never expired at the time. Overall it's really hard to say with the information contradicting itself at this point and the game still being in development. --Digitalspork (She/Her) ♡ (talk) 14:30, 23 March 2024 (UTC)

Hey both! Thanks for raising this - I've edited the wording to say it won't be an "automatically recurring subscription". I think this lines up better with the information currently available from Andrew's Twitter account, while not infering too much from his recent screenshot which seems to suggest it will function like "game time" from World of Warcraft where you can add additional days/months/years to it.
