The reason I didn't post the link is because several years ago when I used the forums it wasn't allowed. Citing your source was considered "advertisement" which of course was ridiculous...
Heck, your post would be taken down for posting a youtube link. I wasn't aware things changed.

The reason I shared that article is you asked how FTP could work for RS3, that article gives a very detailed account on the many tactics and avenues availabe to Jagex to make it work.

The key points made make it clear and easy to understand that it indeed can work but it requires planning. The stategies involved also share many similarities with RS3 so Jagex could build upon those strengths.

It also talked about retention and encouraging daily visits with daily rewards.
The article lists many different choices, you wouldn't incorporate everything listed and the article makes that clear by defining MMO's, FPS, and farmville.

It's not always short "daily" visits as you cherry picked too, as mentioned, it depends entirely on what genre the FTP game is. To quote:

"Design for a (very) long duration of play. In F2P games, the longer someone plays a game, the higher the chances he will purchase items. Designing a game that will keep players active for months is a challenge we are no longer used to. Apart from MMOs and multiplayer games, the design trend during the last few years has been to provide players with intense but brief game experiences. Therefore, we must learn once again to develop long-lasting games. The design objective is to get players to play often, for brief periods of time and for months."

Aside from the spelling error in the title, this is an interesting idea, and probably one Jagex has actually considered. While F2P on RS3 has been expanded recently, and could easily continue to be expanded, (which I am in favor of) I don't think that its time yet to open up the entire map just yet.

I don't see this happening until Jagex has another game going to be the cash cow to replace the loss of Runescape membership income.

In addition, even if you opened up alot or all of the content (ala Darkscape), you're still going to have content that won't be played because the current meta of players don't go towards it or the content is outdated (ie: most minigames)

Plus it would be a lot of time and resources *cough* *money* *cough* to make the content F2P.
Why?
Because there is a lot of content in game to have to switch over.

but like 4 real tho, the RS3 community isn't growing


okay and ask we have been asking for 26 pages. how will this help the longevity of rs? or be sustainable

you have already stated you dont care for profit.... just the number of players which is a big flaw in the plan. as if the increase of pleyers doesnt sustain the now full free game. it will soon end up being a dead game with 0 players

you cant seem to get your head around that. which is why we have been talking profits.... for this to be reliable it has to make profit. and you said you dont care for it. so why should we care for this?

It's about the long run, more active players on RS3 the less likely for the RS3 servers to go down.
What are F2P things that are fun? List them.
No one's at duel arena, cross your fingers if you want to play dungeoneering with a team.Fist of guthix ... Trash.


After 26 pages you played politician and wouldn't answer a question that not even Jagex can fix. Go cry to a mod and manipulate them to delete post with financial facts and theories.


How will you increase active player count ?

Also I do want to add, I don't care how much money Jagex makes (probably cause OSRS is killing it brah )

oh i have no idea. word of mouth has gotten a few players. but im not the one making the claim that something will work. you asking this is distraction. nor is it helping why we should make rs3 ftp

its not a case of "ohhhh tenebri doesnt know" = we should make rs3 ftp

not at all so stop asking questions that hold no relevance. im here on this thread (about making rs3 ftp) as to show why its a bad idea. shame you cant understand that. shown by you asking this question


kind of like saying

this guy is guilty of x

some dude saying no he isnt. everyone going oh yeaah??? so who did it?

pointless question
