Dunno if you heard but you finally did the microtransactions poll and it turns out no one likes them.

Any comments as to why you have a game full of them? Any comments on the "90% enjoy them" comment. How is Mod Mmg? How are IVP these days?

I heard they did a
cosmetic poll, not microtransactions poll
in OSRS. The cosmetics could come totally free to players without them doing anything like in Jagex's previous Book Of Face Promotion with FB.

Only 60k out of Jagex's 8 million active players voted and 30% of them voted yes with 40k-ish or
0.5% of Jagex's total active players voted no.

Neither game has a total of 8m players. That's just the number of accounts created in the last year and bot accounts affect that number too. Even WOW which is alot more popular doesen't have 8m players why would runescape have that many?

Jagex officially reported 8.0171 million active users and 1.0813 mil members as of the end of the first quarter of 2019.

Why would Runescape have that many? Jagex said the main reason was because of the huge surge in players coming to the game in the 3rd quarter of 2018 under their promotion with Twitch. They added some more with OSRS Mobile release too.

What specifically about RS3's MTX you have a problem with?

The XP/Key from treasure hunter is abysmal and absolutely no one uses it as a serious training method because you'd go bankrupt. The cosmetics are entirely buyable from the use of ingame cash via bonds, bar a few untradable items.

And if the logic is "I'm mad I can't get the 1% of those items that are cosmetic and unattainable", then I'd hate to inform you about holiday items, items won from community events, and the fact I'll likely never have a blue party hat no matter how hard I try.

There are a few specific greivances that I have issues with, but judging by your stats for RS3, I doubt you'd ever be able to guess them, and they're being slowly fixed over time, infact, come end of the month, none of them will even exist.

Meanwhile, feel free to buy your XP on OSRS by selling bonds on the G.E, cos it's exactly the same MTX there.

So you're saying they should reopen the poll to allow the other members to vote.

Why are you talking about IVP two years after they stopped their involvement in Jagex?
Also the statistic said that 99.71% enjoy (read: play) treasure hunter. So if you wanted to not be counted in the statistic you would have to not use your free treasure hunter keys.

They do the same thing with all their statistics in regards to anything. Every player who has killed any boss just once will be marked as a person who enjoyed the update that released it.

Jagex isn't going to comment the real reason for it, because it'd be bad PR for them: the problem with RS3 is that its playerbase is both too addicted to not quit and also too tired of complaining about MTX to keep complaining, so Jagex gets away with cosmetic and P2W MTX in a P2P game through psychological means. In comparison to OSRS, the playerbase already quit once before, meaning they could do so again, and they still throw a fit at Jagex for the slightest of unnecessary monetization additions, so Jagex is having a hard time trying to subdue them too.

That said, Jagex could still slowly but surely fill OSRS with MTX, but it'd likely be a lot more difficult for them to do it there than with RS3, since the OSRS players were already able to throw away their progress before.
