I won't go into all of my opinions on the new content, but I will say that it is a very big disappointment to say the least. It's mostly style over substance.

You've posted higher revenues than ever, yet the content seems worse than ever. Can we please get some proper investment and receive a truly large and meaningful expansion?

Here are the pros and cons of the update, in my opinion:

Pros:

- Exploration is encouraged to an extent
- Cluster tasks are a good idea and should be implemented for more Slayer Masters
- The Island itself looks nice
- Herb Bag
- Laniakea
- New cutscene style
- Elite Hunter Skilling outfit is finally available

Cons:

- Big Game Hunter
- Agility
- Empty map (not many things to discover)
- (Minimap) Map is poorly represented, can be confusing
- Slayer monsters
- Same old resources, mostly in worse locations
- New Miniquest
- Island smaller than expected
- Base building lamely implemented
- Hardly any examines

You do realise your cons are everything they were hyping? :O lol

According to PcGamer and other news articles more content is planned over the next few weeks. Something jagex failed to mentioned to the players on any of their official platforms, that is so morally wrong.

As for the investment, This is standard practice for many gaming companies these days, excuses like "mxt is needed to keep the game growing", "investors don't interfere with content", Investors are an important part of keeping the game alive. We know this not to be true at all. Greed, greed, greed.

We have had minimal content for months now all leading upto this. Frankly i don't understand how BGH made it past the concept, it's horrid, Jagex standards are clearly low.

We would agree that regardless of the profitability of the loot box trade, the risks associated with them are worryingly high

The island needs way more shortcuts to navigate. Just trying to walk from the boat to the camp was a nightmare.

Oh look another dead end that could have been an agility shortcut.

I think the intro was beautifully done with the 4 people following you. But that enjoyment after the intro quickly fades with how many dead end paths the island has.

I'm curious what exactly we will be spending currency on once everything is maxed.

Ports you can make scrimshaws, poh you can sell animals to other players.

This stuff seems to be self contained. Cause if that stuff doesn't have a recurring use its kinda useless to keep gathering stuff down the road.

I think the visuals of the island are beautiful. But far too much dead space. And sadly with how distant each resource is, I feel like people would just opt to not wander around a jungle compared to going to some dock in karajma for tuna.

More Pros:

- Big Game Hunter is pretty fun.
- Agility is decent enough
- Empty map (not many things to discover) My bad, I forgot to look around.
- More Slayer monsters, more loot.
- Same old resources, mostly in worse locations with unlockable deposit boxes nearby
- New Miniquest, Hurrah!
- Island smaller than expected bigger than the Wilderness.

You Left some things out, so I fixed it for you, there you go.

More Cons:

- Big Game Hunter is not pretty fun.
- Agility is not decent enough
- Empty map (not many things to discover) My bad, I forgot to look around. Its so big it takes 20 minutes to find base camp while having fun resting and running out of energy.
- More Slayer monsters, more garbage under tiered loot.
- Same old resources, mostly in worse locations with unlockable deposit boxes nearby that requires moar currency grind.
- New Miniquest, Hurrah! (sarcasm)
- Island smaller than expected bigger than the Wilderness so more boring walks

I meant the reverse so I fixed it for myself, there I go.
