Hey look, taken directly from the homepage. I'll let you figure it out on your own. I even did the scary math for ya!


The facts in question can be found at the top of any runescape.com webpage. Hope this clears things up for you!


Yes, the fact and only fact that is shown on the top of any runescape.com webpage is just the current number of Jagex playes, not their total population. That we all know and has been clarified by Jmod Rowley.

Stop strawmanning. No one ever claimed concurrent players were the total population.

Good whatsoever then.

There is still no sign to show RS3 population is declining, right? If not, show it then. There is still no sign to show OSRS has more actual players then, right? If not, show it then. :D:D:D

TH is not going to be removed for the very obvious $$$ reason.

TH is obviously still going and everybody can see in game. Mark your calendar.

Jagex is actually making TH a better and better deal by the week. This week, we see Prismania being upgraded with bonus xp in the last 2 days.

A week or 2 earlier, Umbral Chests debuted alongside TH keys in Twitch Prime offers.

Players love loot boxes, and Jagex know it well. :)

TH is not the sole form of microtransactions revenue, yet it's the one that has the heaviest impact on the game in terms of content and "integrity." If jagex wants to see active players rise up, then TH is the one to go. It's all a matter of what's worth more. A few whales, or an active playerbase. Currently Jagex is opting for the former, but it cannot last forever.

Have they? I didn't notice. Seems Jagex has no longer been posting in the Treasure Hunter forums, nor have they posted treasure hunter updates on the main page in over a month. Seems like they finally realized that aggressive MTX is a bad look. Of course, they're still addicted to that pay2win $, but it's a small step.

TH is considered gambling! Random chances at rewards. If someone used real money to buy keys and open chests with random, unspecified rewards then it's considered gambling. There are highly sought after items in TH that require random chance to obtain.

One day, governments will crack down on this bullcrap. Unless you specify EXACTLY what I will get from a chest, then it will always be gambling.

I had to stop my self a couple times from buying 200 keys to get lucky items, 200m gp, or some pay2win bonus xp.

I love RuneScape but TH is just predatory loot boxes.

I actually came on the forums because I don't see Treasure Hunter plastered EVERYWHERE all over the home page.

That is refreshing and nice actually.


Treasure Hunter is like wanting to go to my favorite restaurant, that I had gone for years, and having to slog through endless rows of slot machines-just to enjoy what I once had. Or going to your favorite restaurant every day and having to refuse an advertisement for a casino that's shoved in your face.



I really dislike TH. But I stopped complaining about it, and just play other games now.

I used to play this game a ton. But TH is just repulsive. It makes me want to run away every time I see some gigantic monetization window appear.

I haven't logged in a while, I'm betting I am still forced to see the treasure hunter dialogue box every new day. Why can't that be toggled off?

You can't because it is fun and an important game feature and Jagex don't want you to miss any fun game features.

Everybody always sees TH among other game features and news on the last GUI before he clicks the "login" button to get into the game too. You simply can't turn these important news and game feature reminders off.

Turning these reminders off won't take TH out of your mind anyway because you are going to get free TH key token drop from playing the game anyway.

Jagex just want you to have fun with all the interesting game features, and TH is one of them. :D
