The frontpage news and forums have nothing on it yet Reddit has blown up with complaints and people quitting the game over it.

From what I can tell itís:
An additional form of MTX
Must be purchased with real world money (not rewarded to loyal members, summer special members or premium members
Will be available to Ironman
Cosmetics can be purchased with it (unsure if a Solomonís, old treasure hunter rewards, new treasure hunter rewards or literally Solomonís 2)
Itís getting a 2 week trial run

Please link topic/jmod posts. Or better yet, jmod reply

Pretty much it's a system where players will be able to complete ingame tasks to earn treasure hunter rewards. Theres a free track and a 'gold' track which offers more rewards and possibly highly sought after rewards. "All" mtx items will be brought back one way or another according to them.

Don't worry about the reddit bs. Everytime a mtx update or post by a jmod is posted, there's controversy on reddit with players venting out their rants on how they are quitting after playing the game since 2002. Yet we all know how that ends.. they continue to play lol. Just ignore it and move on.

Yes, it is another form of MTX but since it is said to be payable with runecoins, it means real money purchase is not mandatory thanks to the fact that gp can be converted to bonds and then runecoins.

It is also cosmetics only, unlike some games that offer similar MTX products.

So at this stage, I think Runepass is more palatable than similar product in many games.

It's a MTX where you pay a monthly fee to access various cosmetics.

Sounds like the most fair MTX to be honest as there's little to no gambling involved. If you enjoy cosmetics then it might be good, but if you're like me and find little to no value in wearable items that don't grant bonuses or simply change the look of whatever other thing you're wearing, then it's the easiest thing in the world to just completely ignore.

If I have to pull-up a seperate window just to see what gear I have equipped before rushing off to do some task, that's an inconvenience since without overrides I know what I'm wearing just by looking at my character - but each to their own.

Maybe move your thread to the MTX forums. What with MTX not being updates.
