no ya don't ;)  you've forgotten about "detection_filter" which is what the old 
in-rule thresholding is now called...

eg: alert tcp $HOME_NET 21 -> $EXTERNAL_NET any (msg:"LOCAL.RULES FTP 
Brute-Force login attempt (1) -- BLOCKED DESTINATION"; 
flow:from_server,established; dsize:<100; content:"530 "; depth:4; 
pcre:"/^530\s+(Login|User|Failed|Not)/smi"; classtype:unsuccessful-user; 
detection_filter: track by_dst, count 5, seconds 300; sid:100000001; rev:5;)
