Honestly, this Runefest is probably one of the most successful, in terms of you guys being able to deliver it all, and what you did with the Ambassador was quite interesting, so kudos for those.

However, I have 3 concerns regarding the reveals:

1. Dailyscape reductions

For the love of God, please, PLEASE, actually stick to doing this, instead of shrugging it off and instead increasing dailyscape. One of the biggest issues the game has that it treats you like a slave, forcing you to play X amount of hours every day, or you're missing out on efficiency. Temporarily available rewards should be toned down to a minimum, allowing the player to play when they want and still be competitive.

2. Potential number of patch weeks

Guys, you charge $11 a month with lots of IAPs, and yet you keep delivering less content than when you only charged a monthly fee. Now, I know that these reveals were just for the winter period, but even so, it seems like there'll be way too many patch weeks than is justified, especially when you've already got many patch weeks to compensate for before. If you can't deliver content appropriate to your monetization, then you really should tone down the monetization, because it's simply not worth it.

3. Questing

We've had 2 quests only this year, and from these reveals, assuming that both the quests make it to the game this year, we'll end with a total of 4 - that's embarrassing. Runescape's one of the biggest selling points is its unique quests, and you've utterly neglected that this year as well. I honestly doubt that the two upcoming quests are going to be so 10/10 that they could make up for all the empty months without a quest.

(Also very disappointed that you still consider magical dice worth keeping in the game... sigh.)

---

Overall, like said, it seems like you actually learned to be more realistic this year, but there's still a long way to go on other areas.

BLACKWING, i totally disagree with it being successful, this game has been heavy neglected content wise for months, what they announced should've been expected in terms of being ready as they have already put minimal content in the game as it is.

What im more angry about is the lack of content, and watching runefest reveals just shows we have many more patch weeks ahead.

Don't get me wrong, overall this year's Runefest was unsuccessful (in RS3's part anyway), but that particular individual aspect was IMO successful.
