RuneScape will never downgrade to a free to play game. Realistically, Treasure Hunter isn't game impacting unless you're spending hundreds or thousands of dollars in keys for xp, even then we don't have the statistics on how many players are actually buying keys at those rates and even then; why should it matter how they spend their money?

I don't see the correlation between new players and the assumption they'd invest in MTX. Considering how most games are nowadays, a majority of new generation players probably won't care. Look at WoW for example, you can literally buy your way to level 100, buy tokens for in-game gold, all while its $15 a month to play, on top of having to purchase WoW itself and its expansions. I don't see an outcry in their community.

If you feel P2P + MTX is a turnoff, that sounds like a personal problem. At the end of the day, I don't devalue my account or my grind because you envy or feel cheated someone spent money to get where you/they are.

You got trolled. Belgium government has never said it is gambling and they never said they are going to do anything all. You can go to the same website and find another article correcting that April Fools mistake. I guess the Belgium government has probably given their editor in chief a wake up call. ;)

You may also wonder what happened to the UK Parliament Petition thread? What doesn't anybody bump it up anymore? The simple answer is UK has already responded a couple of weeks ago... and you know the result already. Sorry...
NOTHING

So why not improve the game for new players to encourage them to keep playing?


Tells me not to derail thread and does the same thing.

Ironic.

Whos to say new players wont enjoy th and actually stay because of it?

Yes i know the same could be said about the other side but once again, you think you know how other ppl will react when you dont.

Good question which is actually answered repeatedly by the players themselves who hate TH but instead of quitting, they bought Primier Club memberships year after year.

With or without TH, players will still pay. Only idiots will remove TH to make themselves less money. :D:D

If TH is really "bad" for PR, why do these people who think it is "bad" PR still pay for Primier priviledge in a "bad" PR game? Does it make them part of the "bad" PR? :D:D


I 100% agree with this^.

And you know why this game is actually not "dying"? That's simple. It is because they continue to make money from these "dying" players. :D

You are seriously mistaken, on this thread P2P will ALSO complain AGAINST this removal of TH idea, while on the other thread mostly it will be F2P who would complain AGAINST my idea of making TH P2P only. This guy has like a larger audience that is going to be affected by this idea of his.

Jagex's financial statements show that even if they removed *all* MTX (yes, all of them, not just TH), they'd still be making profit each year, so no, it is not needed, and they could easily remove TH and keep the game running. Of course the jmods are going to say that TH is necessary, but those are ambiguous statements to put up a good face in the public; the numbers they provide in their financial statements however, do not lie. > )


W/e the truth is, th isnt going anywhere.

TH is MTX. SGS is also MTX. Jagex and its employees live on MTX.

TH is optional. SGS is also optional. Nobody is required to pay any real money, or better yet, they can earn gp in game and use TH and SGS for no real money.

To me, there really should not be any argument on SGS vs TH. They are just game features that players can choose to have fun with, or not, with real money, or not.

When rational people have time to sit down and think, they probably will come up with the same conclusion of some Polygon editors. No matter how much they hate MTX., no matter how many 9000 word articles they write to blast MTX, no matter how unfair they think the world including the rating agencies like ESRB are giving them the cold shoulders...
in the end they still realize everybody is allowed to conduct their business, provide their ratings, and play the games the way they like to. The bottom line is they can't change it, so they will just have to live with it.

What real world evidence shows Jagex will make more money from subscription if they remove TH? We only see the responses of the 30 users in the forums and some of them like TH too.

30 x $8 x 12 < $3000 a year.

Yes, everybody can suggest but good luck if you think Jagex really care about that $3000 a year that (1) isn't guranteed, (2) they will pay on time and (3) they won't charge back and remove TH that gives them a fortune? :D:D:D

Declining members? Big fat stupid joke as I have mentioned REAL WORLD FINANCIAL REPORTS showed members have been rising and are expected to rise this year and at least next. Oh should Jagex be shaking in their Ranger Boots if all these 30 players in the forums quit. :D:D:D

Says theyd make more money, yet shows no proof.

So this is false.

). And OSRS does have MTX in the form of bonds. You seem to be under the belief that TH is the only form of MTX that causes cash to flow into Jagex's pockets.


Ofc some might consider bonds MTX, but most of the OSRS ppl youd ask would say otherwise.

You are sadly mistaken rather. I don't have to say it the 9001 times that OSRS or even Classic or Whatever don't matter in Jagex's BIG PICTURE. They are projected to make 50+ mil profits in a couple of years with not just the current RS titles but more under their current monetization model. They don't care about the $5 or $10 a month from the 30 players in the forums, especially when they can see with their eyes closed that their business has been going up and they have been setting world records and winning prestigious rewards in the game industry in the faces of the hot air blowers who have said "Runescape is dying. MTX is dying since 2012". :D:D:D

Killing 2 games slower isn't better than killing 1 game faster; they'd both die in the end. The real best solution is to remove TH on RS3 and focus on Solomon's store; that way, both games can live! > )

I mean it is still MTX after all ;)

Miu, you are still arguing about semantics without any data of your own. For the 9000 times, it is still your own opinion without any data to support your claim "SGS would of course become more profitable if it had more cosmetics". Where did you get the "of course" from? :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Good thing Jagex knows their business. That's why they made more money from MTX and among MTX, TH gave them more money than the other 2 means in 2017. That's the fact. :D:D:D

Good thing Jagex already told everybody twice TH is here to stay. Good thing Jagex amplied their statement by physically adding TH to the event calendar, hence establishing TH as a regular RS content instead of just a distraction. :D:D:D:D:D:D

Don't like that? Too bad but nothing you can do except don't pay TH and don't look at the TH events in the calendar. :D:D:D:D:D:D

Miu, in other words, you still have no real data to show but just your own hypothetical scenario.

You still don't realize Jagex doesn't care who play RS3, OSRS, both, or none as long as they pay.

And you are still here in the RS3 forums and not in the OSRS3 ones but just look up the Calendar please... Uh oh... TH is still running and you are still here. :D:D:D:D:D:D

So, just like I predicted, IF jagex was seeing runecoins not doing too well, they could add additional features (i.e. runepass) to make it more marketable. Shauny is even discussing winding down on TH promotions, so it seems runepass was a blessing in disguise.

The problem with removing Th at this point in the game is that it's been in the game far too long.

Yes that includes the SoF too, they've taken their tole on the game and have already given an unfair advantage to many players, for example allowing famous youtuber A Friend to max with ease.

Many others may have also done this.

Meaning any new players will be at a disadvantage.

No support.


Pretty much.

Miu said:
And how long were rat pits in the game before they were removed?


You're pretty much comparing apples to oranges at this point.

Miu said:
f you acknowledge it's an unfair advantage, then it only makes sense to get rid of it.


Just because something unfair, isnt a reason to remove it.

Same could be said about literally anything.

Example, IMO comp cape is unfair so it should be removed right with your logic?

Going strong? You mean MTX and Jagex's profits? :D:D:D

Despite how much people "hate" MTX, they still spend a lot of time playing this game, even after they are maxed.

Yes, very interesting article. It only means EA is willing to spend more $$$ on legal fees than they will otherwise lose on taking away loot boxes from Belgium. They must have a reason to spend more $$$ and many years of time.

Most likely, their Sports community called for it. Likewise, the 2K Games Sports community voiced their opinions.

Suppose if Jagex followed the event of this idiotic ATVI saga and reduced MTX/loot boxes, they might be in serious trouble if a month later nobody else would pay them a cent. What would happen next? Most probably they would have to get rid of a lot of employees instead of adding new ones. They would also have to move much quicker into new projects.

TH did so much damage already that even if it’s removed, nothing would change. Old players won’t come back. Current players won’t enjoy the game more. Toning down on promotions and keeping th cosmetic would be a courtesy for the players, but we know jagex too well, that this won’t happen.


As much as i can see why ppl dont like it, this is how it is sadly.

So either deal with it or move on.
