Who is in charge of the spotlight? The only place you can check it, to my knowledge, is the runescape wikia page, so I am guessing it is their doing. Shouldn't Jagex have an official spotlight?

Second, there is no fight pits spotlight planned in the next two months, which makes me think there isn't one for fight pits. The rotation seems to start over after two months, so I think whoever is in charge of it omitted the fight pits mini game, either by accident or on purpose.

If anyone can speak to these issues it would be much appreciated, thanks.

Anyone with me? I am trying to start a motion to make fight pits popular again. I feel like it is a good game. It doesn't get a spotlight though, I think that might be a mistake. I don't see why it seems like runescapewikia runs the spotlight calendar. Shouldn't Jagex be doing that? Maybe I am wrong. Well what do you guys say?

I think this spotlight thing is a big deal. If it is runescapewikia organizing it, it is a big deal. Shouldn't Jagex be organizing this? Maybe we should make it a game content suggestion, since it is not doing the best job it is supposed to be doing, namely providing a spotlight for all the game's minigames, like fight pits. That's why I think Jagex would be a better organizer of the spotlight. I don't know who is organizing it at this point though.

So, I found out there is a spotlight announcement in the game, by the clan wars portals. I still want to address the fight pits issue. There should be a fight pits minigame spotlight. I remember in 2007 when it came out, it was a fun thing to do. I think we should bring it into the spotlight rotation, there is really no reason I can think of to not have it there.

I think this made me laugh a little more than it should have... :P


The RuneScape Wikia is a separate website and is not affiliated with Jagex, although is supported by them. When the minigame spotlight system was released back in May of 2014, Mod Hunter (I think it was?) posted a list of the rotation on the news post. As that news post has vanished long ago, the RS Wikia just created a bot on their website to record the rotation, since the only 'official' way to check when spotlights is, is by using that god awful minigame interface, and then manually counting the days to figure out the date of said spotlight.

Also, Fight Pits is a dead minigame with no rewards (apart from the hybrid top piece). The playerbase these days only care for rewards, and which gives the most efficient XP/GP, so adding Fight Pits to the spotlight will just keep it as dead content.

If anything new were to be added to the spotlight rotation, I'd prefer Deathmatch..

I feel like it shouldn't be dead content, though. It is a good place to train pvp, and learn the abilities in pvp situations. I think deathmatch is good for that also, they should both be on the spotlight. It would not be so hard to come up with rewards for these minigames. I think even that the spotlight should be consolidated, having more than one game be on a spotlight at once, like the skilling minigames; great orb project and trawler, and then the pvp deathmatch and fight pits, and then the multiplayer pvp castle wars and soul wars, etc. I think even clan wars should be on the spotlight, to get clans more involved in some multiplayer activities, and meeting new clans.
