I'm also of the mind that removing stuff seems dumb, but I also accept I may not be well informed.

I heard on a stream that the reason they removed ma & are considering removing trouble brewing etc is because of the effect it has on new players - for example the gameply may be outdated or it might just not make sense with some current stuff or other.

So I'm in the same camp as you guys but I accept they may have better researched reasons as to why they are looking at stuff like this.

Whaaaat? Why the flying duck would they remove TB? I'm still cross about MA but MA had camera and balancing issues against it, I suppose, whereas TB has none.

Sure, sabotage is controversial and the rewards (as well as brewing in general) need new additions, but the gameplay is brilliant. TB is really, really fun, much more enjoyable than one might expect at first glance. Also, ignoring the afk'ers, it's pretty populated during spotlight, there's always people coming to hosted (e.g. Mod Lee's) events there, and with some effort you can find a team normally as well. And there's no bugs or anything, gameplay is pretty much perfect (apart from sabotage I guess), except stuff could really benefit from having left-click options. And of course 20 new achievements would be neat.

It's quite plain that whoever came up with the idea of removing it has never played it.

It was admittedly a terrible quest overall , but to outright remove it (as opposed to rewriting, then reworking it) doesn't bode well... "The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits."

I imagine that a lot of minigames are on the chopping block in the coming years regardless of quality. Dead content and all of that. I personally would prefer if they just adjusted rewards to make most of them actually worth the time to play (because, let's face it, it's all about the gains these days), but that would require more effort.

I'm not a huge fan of that quest but I'm just sick of Jagex removing stuff in general. They need to cut it out. Unless it significantly hinders player progression (and only then), they need to stop removing content. Even in the cases of content hindering player progression, they need to try to rework it first.

Frankly, they're either just falling into laziness or trying to appeal to Comp'ers. Maybe a bit of both.
