no one forces you to participate in the event,
if you don't like it, don't use it.

you can earn more tokens doing other stuff anyway,
I've played for 5 hours yesterday, earned over 4k tokens

as for the tedious part, the event is 100% afk, except for that 1 click you have to do every 5 minutes.

if you stare at your screen waiting for the tokens yea It's tedious, might wanna do something else on the side if you don't like that.


Couldn't agree more.

Well said.

You're right, that's why we have difficult bosses like Solak. Limited time event rewards, on the other hand, should be accessible to everyone who were there to participate without locking it behind huge timegate or paywall.


Yet it is available to everyone.

If you choose not to obtain them that's on you.

It doesn't disprove though that you can get them if you just put in the effort.

yea, but the thing is not everyone has the time to put in several hours of grinding a day, how is it fair to them?


Yea, but the thing is lyfes not fair.

So the fact of the matter is ppl need to grow a pair and learn to deal with the fact you cant always have everything you want.

Well done, you missed the point, the point was effort had nothing to do with it.


Couldve just said so as I fail to see how anyone could've came to that conclusion with a comment like that.

Also knowing you, I wouldn't put it past you for trying to make one like that.

Not everyone has the time and/or money to put in the effort on short notice in 6 days.



Then you don't deserve the rewards.

Plus it was announced in the newpost this was happening so you had plenty of advanced notice.

Barnabis said:

The difference is the lack of "at your leisure" instead of "you hve 6 days to do it, giving us a god damn immediate deadline! Get enough of those IRL at my job we don't need that here.


Then maybe this isn't the game for you.

Once again, theres going to be things not everyone can/will complete so jagex shouldnt have to make events catered to those ppl.

i finished my 15k mark earlier this morning. imagine. took me 5and half days to collect all of the 15k point toll to get all of the rewards. the cosmetic looks awesome but the grind for the pack yack follower. absolutely ridiculous. but the bonus exp for DG Herb and Agility is very much appreciated.


You do know you didn't have to attend the event to get the tokens right?

You know you can buy tokens and/or boosts with Runecoins, right?

You know you can buy Runcoins with Bonds, right?

You know you can buy Bonds with gp, right?

You know you can just play at your leisure without any time limit to get gp, even as a free member, right?

So, essentially, the smart ones can prepare themselves to get enough gp/bonds/Runecoins for future events similar to this one. The smart ones don't even have to spend a second in any of these events and still get all the rewards. :)

Because a grind doesn't necessarily mean unhealthy. Saving up for a car irl is a grind too, for most people, but not necessarily unhealthy. It's all about how you go at it and how far you're willing to go. If Jagex started regulating that, putting a curfew on playtime, players would be outraged and rightfully so imo.

You're given the freedom to play the game the way you want to. The price of that freedom is that you take responsibility for your actions and choices. If anything, it's a valuable life lesson to learn from a video game, imo.


Couldn't agree more.

Well said :)

People don't have to play a game if they don't like the content. They can always use their time on "better" things they like to do (e.g. watch TV).

Gamers don't have to play a Jagex game if they don't like its content. There are plenty of games they can play.

Jagex gamers don't have to play certain Jagex game if they don't like its content. Jagex has other games like Planetarion.

The fact that Jagex gamers still piled in and enjoyed the Summer Skill Off event definitely meant they thought it was the better thing for them to do.

Likewise in the forums too, just change "game" to "forums" then you have the same patterns. If the forums of a specific Jagex game doesn't interest anybody, they simply won't post as there are always "better" things for these forum users to do. :)


Couldn't agree more.

Well said.

So to everyone, just play the game how you want to.

Sadly, it isn't as easily done as it is said. There's a reason companies employ predatory mechanics such as time-gating and gambling after all.


Good thing theres nothing wrong with time gated content.

Also im glad jagex hasn't resorted to gambling as of yet and hopefully they never will.

turns out only people who forgot to do research on goods they gave to children think so


Uhh what?

So are you agreeing or?

If not th isn't gambling as you have a 100% chance at getting something.

In gambling you don't. Hence why ppl get addicted to it as they keep thinking they'll get it on their not try.
