On the videos: That's good to hear. Am looking forward to seeing the rest of DM's A to Z along with anything else which may come along. (It's been a while since we saw anything from Simon Williams ...)
On the prices: Premium used to be cheaper than VIP and could be bought with real money rather than taking a "via crowns" route. That said, VIP is indeed cheaper than I remembered. Note however that it is, as I type, 270 crowns for a year, and the closest bundle is 225 crowns (which is incorrectly marked as enough for buying a year's VIP), and the next up is 1000 crowns. So to get VIP as cheaply as possible you currently need to do 225 ($25)+ 49 ($5.99)= 274 ($30.99). Is this really "cheaper than ever"? The error on the crowns bundle pricing strongly suggests otherwise. [Edit: Or perhaps not: though the shop says 270 cubits for VIP the "app" says £225 due to "<3 chesscube" month].
Anyway, I see I'm back to 5 videos ... so I have some watching to do!
