LOL@"Winding down" x 9000!!!. Perhaps Santa Clause said that. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

RunePass certainly can't get membership. RunePass certainly can't get TH keys and there'll be no instant mega xp for the Biggies. RunePass certainly can't get the actually useful SGS items like bank slots and keepsakes. And more importantly, those who only want instant xp, gp and good looking cosmetics without playing the game much certainly won't benefit.

Sure, it is a blessing in disguise for Jagex, as it is an extra MTX way for more revenue, ala the PUBG style. Words of Wisdom: you never have enough ways to make enough money. :D:D:D

However as a player, I like RunePass although I don't spend RC for it in this cosmetics "only" stage. It gives me an option though. More choices are always good. :):):)

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.


You do know they've said this before right?

Once again, you completely ignore both the context and the content of my post to post some long-winded irrelevancies and platitudes concerning profitability.

Mod Osborne claimed that RunePass is a 'test to see if we can pull back from other things like Treasure Hunter." Pulling back, winding down, either way we didn't see a TH promo this week, and as a successor to fallen nihil style events, this should sell more runecoins and inject less XP into the game.

While I'm not happy with Runepass at its current state (specifically awarding fallen star and lamps, among other items), it holds promise in raising that low runecoin bottom line you're so concerned about. ;) Which in turn lessens TH promotions, as has already been proven this week.

Again, you are arguing about meaning of words and semantics again? But sorry, I have no interest in it whatsoever.

Just to be exactly clear, what I meant was TH is not going away. TH is continued to be promoted. Jagex never said they won't sell TH keys anymore. And the reason? Because TH is 26% of their revenue, almost 10 times as much as RC. :D:D:D

TH promos will stay and RunePass also. They will also start selling game context like quests and new areas. You heard it here first. :D

It is just pay for DLC, not at all an original idea. Jagex actually expressed once they have thought about releasing regions like "The Arc" as expansions but backed off.

Not too surprising the idea of pay for DLC will return to Jagex some time later, and within that idea, why can't there be a Quest+ package? ;)

As long as it is accessible with existing currencies and not a big must pay real world $$$ price, I don't see any problem. :D:D:D

I haven't argued any semantics in that post, so you may wish to read it over a few times and try to get a grip on what my post actually says and not what you think it says.

And, just like you state, runecoins aren't making as much money, and thus runepass is set to raise the runecoin to TH ratio in terms of profitability.
