Loopy hit the nail on the head. Jagex wanted a flashy storyline to go along with the release of RS3, but the really should've finished the 5th age quests first and killed Guthix off either last year or this. Then MPD could've been longer, more low level quests, etc. Basically everything Loopy mentioned. Also there's been too much focus on the, well Children of Mah, and not on the other gods, and especially the Godless. No wonder they became Brassica content.
