Or they can have a model of everything, buy to play, loot boxes, cosmetics, battle pass, real money player trading and everything you can think of in PUBG and still make huge money.
And PUBG's player count declined when they added all that to the game :D

Other "Battle Royale" games with the different models suddenly started doing a lot better at the same time :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Of course the practice of making a game then adding impudent monetisation later on when there is already a strong player base is the only way companies will get people to play games with lots of monetisation. As with RuneScape when it was bought out.
However players do not like this either and developers will eventually be expected to be clear and honest about what monetisation will be added to the game.

Where did you find PUBG's player count declined when they added all that to the game?

What other "battle royale" games with different models suddenly started doing a lot better at the same time?

Let me show you the real world Digital Games revenue breakdown of 2018 according to Superdata:

https://venturebeat.com/2019/01/16/superdata-digital-games-grow-12-to-109-8-billion-in-2018-fortnite-earned-2-4-billion/

PUBG made over $1 billion in 2018. It was the 2nd highest grossing to only Fortnite. Obviously nobody else was "suddendly started doing a lot better at the same time".

BTW, in 2018 alone, PUBG made as much as Jagex made in all their 18 years of existence. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Just logged in, promo gave me 150k slayer xp for doing nothing.

Logged back out.

Treasure Hunter needs to die.

Why would I even bother skilling when it's been devalued so much?

It really took playing OSRS to make me realize how infested RS3 is and how bad it's gotten. How have we gotten so complacent that we think that releasing BiS skilling gear in TH first, then only releasing it under a bunch of restrictions, skill reqs, and grinding months to years later to the main playerbase is OK? Among other things. Darts to instantly kill bosses, max efficiency skilling materials, billions of gold, everything I've ever accomplished in years can (and has) just been bought in days.

Their playercount over time, feel free to look it up yourself.

Fortnite as you said below

Obviously Fortnite did and it's rise negatively correlates with PUBG's playercount :D

Fortnite did that 3 times last year. Looks like the less aggression monetisation makes for a more popular game and successful business model. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

I know I said the F word three times but for the record I do not play the game because I am not an 8 year old

Isn't it great? All your achievements are completely worthless. Unless you play Ironman I guess.

Or OSRS of course. How is it the shittier version of the game with worse graphics, gameplay, less content, less QoL updates has significantly more players than RS3? Could it be anything to do with the P2W monetisation that pushed so many players away? I wonder.

None of your keyword nonsense if "highlighted" anywhere in Fair Play Alliance's domains. For your convenience, I have already pointed you to the REAL Fair Play Alliance site and their REAL CONTACT INFO. :D:D:D

Are keywords always highlighted in T&A's? Are keywords always highlighted in contracts? Are keywords always highlighted in missing/vision statements?

No, so why does me highlighting a word in that statement somehow trigger you?


Are you Nex is Life?

My reply was clearly to Nex is Life. I did not see Urekmazino "highlighting a word in that statement" at all and it doesn't trigger anything at all neither.

Please stop deflecting the topic again to meaning of words again, especially when the posts did not ask you for meaning of words. My last comment on this meaning of word nonsense whatsoever.

I'm sorry, am I not allowed to reply to you on a
public
forum? Are you my boss? Are you an Fmod? Don't tell me who I can and cannot reply to. And who said I was highlighting the word for you? Are you and Nex the only ones reading this thread? Or could I be highlighting for others?

And I asked if you were triggered because of your seemingly agitated response. No, I don't know if you were actually triggered nor did I assume, I merely asked.

And I was in no way "deflecting" anything, what do I have to deflect? There are no arguments nor personal attacks thrown my way. Did you mean detrack from the original topic? How would highlighting a single word in a quote detrack from a topic? How is it physically possible to do so when I offered no input from my opinion to the topic?

You are talking about the meaning of a word, a player (me) and nothing else about this thread at all. Thanks for your comment for the last time. :)

I still don't get why you had to make such a big fuss about me bringing to attention a keyword.

PS I also wasn't talking about its meaning, don't know if you actually understood what I was trying to do.

There is a catch though..... its not worthless if you use all that in game gold to buy Phats from other players.
