It's been sad news to hear recently that not only was one of the most requested updates, bank rework, cancelled, but on today's livestream, it was revealed that the loyalty points rework (though mostly about auras in practice) has also been cancelled.

Because of the those announcements, and the fact that dailyscape reductions weren't mentioned in the 2019 introduction (despite being advertised in the past), and the fact that you (Jagex) seemingly haven't been doing anything to reduce dailyscape (rather the opposite, increasing it), can we get a status update on if dailyscape reductions is still something that Jagex is working on, or has it also been cancelled?

I'd really hope not, since dailyscape is a major issue in RS3 right now, but at least you (Jagex) should be honest and open about it and tell us if you're still actually working on it or not.

At this point, what hasn't been shelved?

Anything they promise or have promised cannot be taken seriously.

Right, hence why we need them to be consistently honest, so that they might be taken seriously again. :P

In one of their last developer Q&A's, they indicated that their goal for now is "any new content, we will try not to add more dailies"

With 1 team focused on M/S for 16 months, another large group of devs focused on getting 2 games on mobile, and all the other BS, I'm not stunned that reducing dailyscape hasn't been a priority.
Heck, with the current gamebreaking bug on Shooting Stars, and the major rework on M/S ... maybe they'll yank that from content.

I recall something along those lines before, but how far back it's tough to say. I also remember how they used to talk about e.g. nerfing caches so that they wouldn't be so OP and thus be less dailyscapeish.

But really, when you think about it, dailyscape reduction isn't as demanding when it comes to the amount of work it takes compared to the other projects you mentioned. Most dailyscape content could just outright be removed: daily challenges, summer/winter/dxp weekends, daily auras etc. They only powercreep the game unhealthily, and the game would be better without them. Unless, of course, it's Jagex's intent to keep damaging the game, hence why this inquiry to know which way it is.

Good old Mod Shelf taking all the projects..
For real though the M&S was a high focus project so things should be coming off that shelf.
