I support this for a couple of reasons:
1. It makes the donation system more tidy, and cleans things up a good bit.
2. You can now choose to pay a 1 time payment, and get some epic perks, or you can choose a re-occurring payment which you can cancel at anytime, with some awesome perks.
This makes the donation store a lot simpler, and also puts the ability to cancel the VIP payments in the players hands.
Also, if I see anyone complain about the fact that you lost your Gold VIP, I will harass you, Sour literally stated that you can keep your Gold VIP for the time being. It's $25, chill.
