Overall rating for the month: 3/10 - Awful

+Listening to the feedback of players wanting a world event.

-Going back on your word about wanting to reduce dailyscape, instead increasing it.
-Patch month. There's only one actual game update in the entire month!
-MTX and recycled content still do not count as actual game update.

are we gonna ignore the fact that osrs gets a new skill, another half continent sized area added to the map, and a quest the size of priff?


Hey, I was under the impression that RS3 was supposed to be the *main* game with OS being a side thing for nostalgia addicts. Why the hell is OS getting all the updates while we, the players of the main game, get shafted over and over and over again? At least 75% of all updates are mtx promos yet every actual update we ask for gets delayed for sometimes YEARS. As a veteran player of nearly 15 years this greatly saddens me to see my favourite game of all time being turned into an mtx cash cow and everything I ask for getting ignored. Where the hell are the quests? we had 2 and a half quests across this entire year. where is the bank rework? it has been yearsFFS. Not to mention this is the second No-Update month this year. This is nothing short of pathetic, the entire draw of Runescape is regular updates.

Agreed one update per month does not compare. I personally do not warding in rs3 but would love a new skill e.g archeology or expansion on invention. Also pls make the card events longer than 4 days. It is not cool that Old School seems to get more attention.

I am usually not very critical but this month sounds extremely underwhelming. I mean I don't know why things like a bank rework take this long, or a quest. Have you guys let go like 75% of your staff in the past few years or something?

My rating: 2/10. World event is decent but not even permanent content. Rest is just mtx.

GameJam themes to be discussed starting 18th October includes reducing dailyscape yet almost everything this month seems to be focused on increasing it instead...sure they're all temporary, but they're still all additional dailies for their duration regardless, the plague doctor one especially.

Edit: So, in practice these haven't been so bad - I'm still not a fan of the task card events like plague doctor due to their short duration vs high time requirement, but it wasn't nearly as bad as previous ones this time...with the exception of not having the +2 free skips per prestige despite still having 2 tasks that have daily limits associated with them anyway..
I still don't really like it but I must admit it's an improvement on previous ones at least. As usual the limits it enforces due to very limited skip tokens being inventory only have been poorly thought through though - the dg one was hotfixed at least, but still can't do things like coeden daily if you have even 1 being saved for the next prestige (and with the lack of free skips per prestige this has become far more necessary this time unfortunately).

Hallowe'en event is a daily of sorts but you can catch up if you miss them apparently - 4 hourly reset instead of daily, with maximum entries being the total number of days since the event started it seems. The last couple days are weekend days too to help with catching up. With the shard set to stabiliser it's fairly brief each time too so actually time requirement isn't too bad.

Customer service week is a daily of sorts too, but like the hallowe'en event you can catch up if you miss any and can all very easily be done on the last day if you prefer for these too as each clue is very brief (especially if you have skull sceptre for infinite teleports to a lot of the locations). There's also the 1 off parts of this too of course, but they too are fairly briefly with plentiful time to get them done.

I get you're point but technically osrs only gets that stuff if they vote for it (take a look at the warding opinion forum)! the plague doctor thing is only temporary so it's not really dailyscape! and sorry but you kinda criticized your own complaint you don't know how long an update like bank rework or quest normally takes! Also take a look at who's on jagex's mod list as of late (or more precisely who's names are no longer on it)!

So that's what the tainted shard was about? Nothing to do after Sliske's Endgame? Just another timed event? Along with other timed events?

No updates/news for the mining/smithing rework? And before anyone responds, I'm aware about the beta they had in the first quarter of the year and the fact that drop tables would have to be reworked as well should the skills be reworked. Don't need to remind jagex that it's been more than a year since the announcement of the rework and after beta, they kept it in the dark.

This brings me to the bank rework: using and delaying rs3 mobile as an excuse is not acceptable. If mobile is not ready why delay the bank rework? The bank rework can come to the core game as you work on it for mobile (if you're even planning on releasing it anytime soon) and fix any bugs as well. I understand that it's a huge project but the delays are way to much (considering the very exact day you guys announced it) and getting out of hand. It's unhealthy for RS3.

I play osrs and I'm enjoying it but I also want to enjoy RS3. These mtx/timed events updates need to calm down and focus the REAL updates that will make this game great once more.
