Why are we getting yet another one of these weekends in the summer? After the Menaphos DXPW, Jagex said there will only be two a year ( Feb and Nov) or something like that. Now once again we have another one in the summer?

Why the heck do we need three DXPW's a year?

I'm starting to feel like a certain person is right: Greed is killing the game in slow and painful ways.

Stop injecting these DXPW's every time you have a slow month of content ( yes the " big summer update is coming next Monday, but shouldn't that be enough content to not justify another stupid DXPW?)

They dump in double xp weekends to make up for the lack of quality content. When I logged in last week there were only 4 people in my world, and there hadn't been an update.

Just stop? Jagex is just getting started. We had "half dxp" with the song of seren, expect more half dxp's in between dxp weekends in the future.


Waiting for Diet Double Dew sponsored XP weekends.

I really hope not :/

What is the point of this DXPW? Unless its going to count for the static one in Sept. If not.. we will be having 2 DXPW's in the span of 2 months lol

Didn't that already happen last year? I distinctly remember a surprise November DXPW after one took place in late August or mid September. Wasn't that last year?

In that case, we've already had 2 in the span of very few months, and we've been having 3 a year since Menaphos' release.

All that said, I agree with you that it's too much and that I'd like them to rein it in a little. I'm not surprised, though, and knowing Jagex I don't expect them to.
The best things in life are hidden. You have to seek them out! :D

They up the number of DXP Weekends (and TLE's) because they know the modern player isn't interested in the grind.
Offering up more and more of the DXP weekends allows for players to remove a major portion of the grinding in order to get to the next bit of content.

Bare in mind, it's not that I'm for this many bxp weekends either since I consider such an event to be physically unhealthy forcing a player to do it over a fixed time period over a limited time period.
