    Love this. This will really help folk like me that would otherwise forget to buy something every month. It gives us a savings plan of sorts too with the COTOs to buy larger things. Very glad you guys are doing this.

    Awesome. I'm glad they took the recent threads suggestions about it to heart. I'm definitely in and also would love to see more tiers for different rewards.

    For anyone who actively plays the game, this optional subscription looks like a pretty good deal.

    And if I buy this today, I assume it counts towards my 5$ spent on today's telethon?

    This is great for those of us who don't mind throwing some change at them but can't seem to prioritize telethons on their schedule.

    Excellent.

    I think there should be additional subscription tiers. $20 a month would be a sweet spot for me.

    I had to get the 2018 birthday cake so no subscription for me. But it looks like a great value.

    There is, you buy the sub and get telethon rewards, cotos, potions and stuff. Then you go to the add-on store and buy more.

    I used to do that when there was store credit so I could save up for something over time. But, alas, store credit went away.

    Realistically store credit isn't really needed anymore.
    With so many things available on the coto vendors in game you can get 90% of the add-on store this way.
    The only thing it really effected was bundles and I hope these make it onto the coto vendors in the future, either that or break them down so you can just buy the components.

    I think $9 is a good price. Its on par, more or less, with other subscription models (a bit cheaper, actually) but its something that everyone who actively plays the game can probably afford.
    I don't think there's really need for higher tiers, or at least, nothing super-expensive - or you'll price it out of range for most people and feed the "pay to win" contingent.
