Regretfully many of the most popular MMORPGs still have subscription on top of all the other forms of MTX.

WoW, ESO, FFIV, Black Desert, etc... just to name a few.

Oh! For most of them you have to buy the boxes first although WoW just made Battlechest free last year.

So you see? Jagex is just trying to make their games similar to their peers, while their peers are trying to make themselves even more similar to each other.

Monkey see, monkey do. That's why you get all these super duper content in form of bonus-whatever-events and all kinds of MTX in all of them.:)

The official promise in 2012 was mtx=more content, more than weekly? Where is it? Don't promise something you can't deliver on. Removal of TH aids is only a matter of time. The most hated man in all of JaGeX. Greed is NOT Good! MTX bad.

That you keep insisting Jagex lied to PC Gamer shows up your bias. It is just as likely that PC Gamer got key facts wrong (poor games journalism is hardly uncommon), or that the release plan changed after that article was written, or a number of other things.

It was also not supposed to undermine actual game content, meanwhile the BIS cape in F2P is a discontinued TH item...

Would that be the starfury cape?

Yep. Way better stats than teamcapes or even veteran capes.

Do you people realize it is 2019, not 2012? Starfury Cape and whatever the 2012 Jagex people said are subject to opinions of consumers who live in present time - 2019, not the ones who still think it is 2012?

In 2019, players like live events and free-to-play (aka pay for in-game purchases only when they want, but not when the companies force them to pay through mandatory retail box fee or recurring payments In other words, what Jagex is offering TODAY is what the general consumers of this video game industry go for WITH THEIR WALLETS.

Jagex are both shameless and liars. This is known.

I would be ok with patch weeks, if they actually patched anything meaningful. Anachronia was barely touched/tuned despite all the backlash regarding BGH, it's easy to say "we fixed 100 bugs" when 80 of them are typos.

I think most players in the poll asked for more overhauls and less new stuff, while we sit on dozens of dead skills, minigames, and generally dead content. latest patches didn't solve anything at all most of the times.
