"From midday on July 25th, anyone who buys the 450 Treasure Hunter key package will also get a free Umbral Chest, each of which contains a guaranteed purple prize! We’ve also buffed the other rewards you’ll find inside. This offer will be available until midday on August 22nd."

Seriously? Is this a prank? (I know it's not). But to even consider spending $110 for a chest after this lackluster update seems ludicrous for the change at some protean logs? Yes, I know there are other purple rewards. The problem I think Jagex is missing is the players see the potential of how spectacular this update could have been. If you want me to consider mtx then don't make me frustrated beyond belief and fix the stuff that is so bad atm. We all know you can produce great updates and content because you've done it. Start listening to your player's and do better testing before releasing these updates so that all level of players can enjoy them. A game is supposed to be fun, not tedious & frustrating.

I'll definitely be more inclined to get more mtx offers if things are improved.

I think this promotion is for players who have fun in Jagex's update.

Obviously, they won't spend money in a game if it is no fun to them, right?

If these players are willing to spend a decent amount of real money to buy 450 keys, obviously they are having fun with the game and its great updates. Good for them to have extra bonus from Jagex. :)

Fair point. And there is a lot I do enjoy in the update, however, it has a lot of issues that imo if tested properly could have made this a spectacular update. Some of recent updates have suffered with the same problems on roll-out where things are not as advertised and some things definitely more frustrating than fun. Most of us pay to play, so asking for more mtx in light of this recent update, is poorly timed. I’m thinking more from a business perspective, so why would you not want to maximize the number of players willing to invest further in the game because they love what has been released?

Jagex makes red prizes purple for these promotions. Watch out.


Sometimes when you are lucky, your prizes on the RED slot can be
PURPLE
quality.

And don't forget whatever you get out of an
Umbral Chest
is definitely
EXTRA BONUS
on top or your regular prize. :)

It's not april fools it's jagex, gotta be in the top 3 of the most moronic companies to date.

@Dilbert2001, the OP makes a very good point, If people are having an enjoyable experience they will most likely end up investing more money in MXT's.

So why they felt overhyping this content not even implementing basic QoL updates that players should never have experienced, Agility times, No not ask again messages, Tick log for flowers, information on Dinos, locations, you know basic things any good company would do.

Everything bar the graphics and music just seems lazy and unprofessional, poorly designed, weak, tedious.

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

If you don't like the content, you just don't play, with or without MTX.

Again, it is the same promotion of 450 TH key package but Jagex obviously added a bonus Umbral Chest as well as improved the prizes. What do players have to lose? Nothing. MTX Haters are going to hate but they have nothing to gain or lose as they won't buy MTX anyway. To those who enjoy the content and buy this 450 key TH package, they are definitely getting more rewards than before. It is simply an undeniable fact.

And how do you know the other players don't like the content? AFAIK, there are far more players enjoying this update that not, especially those from all kinds of social media.

Bye then. I am sure Jmods are listening and replying to all the rational people. That's why we have all these updates today. And to reward their appreciation of the game content and monetary support, Jagex is also sweetening their TH offers. How nice! No wonder they made so much money off MTX. :)
