Gold Membership
What do we get if we subscribe as gold members? I've looked over the website, and I don't see anything other than veteran rewards. Am I missing something? Also, I downloaded and play the game through Steam. Is it even possible for me to sign up as a gold member, or would I have to re-download the game directly?

Hi there, have a quick look at this if you haven't already:

That details the difference between "Gold" and "Silver" players. There are advantages to going gold and a lot of silver players sub for 1 month to get the benefits of a gold player as some of the benefits will remain after the month is up e.g. the extra inventory space.

Yes you can still be a gold member if you use steam, you just need to log into the your account on the site and go to create/manage subscriptions.

Hope this helps :D

It's a great help. Thank you, Trickster34.

To be honest, there really isn't a benefit that you can't get from just spending money in the C-store, so it's not worth the monthly. Even the vet rewards can be purchased instantly with the lifetime membership, although those aren't really worth the money either unless you plan on playing for a few years.

so short term, you're better of with the C-store upgrades, long term you're better off as a lifer.

Seems like the model is a bit different than originally expected.

For me, my main reason for going gold first (before lifetime) was because I really want the game to do well, which I figure the more people who support it means the more likely it will last longer. That I got benefits for being a gold member just made it that much better.

Basically I am considering it but the benifits aren't that great.
