They started doing this probably when they added the Patch Notes subforum.

There is already the Recent Game Update forum, always. Obviously it is the place for discussions of all the current update. It may actually be better for forum users to pick whatever topics they want to participate in instead of replying to just one single stickied thread.

There is also actually a link to the Weekly Update thread in the Patch Notes forums. I think this one is where the general discussion of this week's update goes now.

The thread is still here:

http://services.runescape.com/m=forum/c=tiiHxNOPjJU/sl=0/forums.ws?442,443,4,66076655

The link to it is still in the original Weekly Update News post.

Forum users are obviously still using that thread for discussion as usual.

I don't see anything different other than the thread is not in RGU anymore.

There's a difference (in my opinion) in "Game Updates" and "Patch Notes." Patch Notes usually, and should be, small changes to the game to enhance user experience (bug fixes, quality of life, etc.). Unless they refer to new game content in addition to the patch notes listed, I don't see it really as an appropriate thread to discuss major updates. Regardless, often even small announcements used to have their own thread created for users to chat about it.


Only the names are different but everything else is the same.

As I mentioned numerous times, what RS3 Jmods put up as "patches" are very often updates or reworks or even expansions in other games. Even Guinness World Records recognizes all the RS3 "patches" as world record worthy quality updates. RS3 Jmods are just being humble to call their updates and reworks "patches". ;)

As I recall Mod Poerkie said when they created the Patch forum, it is for the ease of the developers to get feed back directly related to their changes that made, and that's what their jobs are mainly at. Other discussions from different players related to the updates are of course welcome, and can be created in Recent Game Updates.

I hear you, but this still confuses people. They need to make it clearer for us if they're now just considering everything a, "patch." Basically, what this is saying to me is they're only preferring feedback from people who read through the "technical jargon" specifics of the patches--any other type of feedback/commentary is irrelevant.


Obviously not only technical feedback is in the Patch Notes Forum weekly posts. There are all kinds of comments and very few of them are technical.
