Can we please keep this thread on topic? There's already a thread up about the state of the industry at large, we don't need to keep making allusions and false comparisons to other games.


Hmm... I see a lot of people have already made comparisons to other games, starting with WoW comparisons from page 5, post 1 ...and on Page 9, post 7, user Miu replied to somebody's WoW comparison...

There are countless comparisons to different games all over these 78 page and growing thread, with user Miu gain, quoting articles related to a bunch of different games such as Forza 7 on Page 19, post 7. :D:D:D

Hmm... obviously Skull-Inky was not the first one who talked about Activision games or trying to keep making allusions and false comparisons to other games.

Why move on when its discussing the topic?


Exactly. If everybody is bringing other companies into the discussion of this thread, including Miu, and nobody inclduing OP and the Fmods said anything otherwise, perhaps this thread is actually meant for such discussions. :D

For that reason, I want to further reveal the actual reason for the separation of Bungie from ATVI... and it is:

Because Bungie reduced MTX including loot boxes in their Destiny 2: Forsaken expansion for unrevealed reason. However, players failed to buy the game after the first month. I think we know the rest of the story, right? They terminated their CFO for unrevealed violation of his contract and then a few days later they also terminated their publishing agreement with Bungie and instantly extended their partnership agreements with Netease to 2023.

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. O_o

Hi everyone, regarding posting about other games, it is allowed as long as it isn't to directly advertise them, such as "hey, go play that game..." or providing outside links to them.

Mostly though, if a thread posted in a RuneScape dedicated forum starts to mainly talk about other games then it will belong in the "Off Topic" forum, therefore, instead of removing any posts talking a lot about comparing with other games, I would like to encourage to get back into the discussion at hand and focus on the game and Jagex more instead.

Thank you. :)

I originally did not support the removal of TH, but the promos are getting completely out of hand. They need to focus on actual content and not promos. What is wrong with them? You know what they should do? Look in Existing Game Content and just fix everything mentioned in there.

Edit: I still think they should at least notice the things in there.

Actual game content and TH promos are 2 different things. Different development teams work on these 2 different beasts too.

M&S reworks, POF, the latest quests among many things most Runescape players enjoy have nothing to do with TH promos at all.

Too many players depend on the P2W/MTX crutch to advance in the game; sadly removing TH would most likely cause more players to quit than return as both:

1. The damage has already been done, ruining any real potential for a sense of accomplishment as even after a removal there will still be those players that used P2W to get ahead and stay there.

2. Everybody that DID want to continue playing switched to OSRS, and most likely won't return even after TH's removal.

Besides, it's not like there wasn't already illegitimate P2W/MTX in the form of RWT (especially rampant at the highest level of players) already. All Jagex did was make it easier/safer/cheaper for the regular player whilst taking a cut for themselves.


I originally quit many years ago because of the initial introduction of P2W completely undermining my accomplishments and achievements by allowing someone willing to drop hundreds (potentially thousands) of dollars to do what I did in many years in a freakin' month.

I came back after seeing OSRS on mobile whilst switching games, and after the initial nostalgia wore off I got burned out having to start all over and decided to check up on things in RS3.

Now so much XP is thrown at you even without paying to get ahead that doing the latter seems kinda pointless imo. Not to mention there's so much frivolous bullcrap e'rrywhere that in all honesty; who the fuck cares anymore? Worry about your own yard rather than just griping about how your neighbor's is greener cuz they dropped money on it to make it so.

The only "prestige" is reserved for ironman style accounts, as anything else you're just seen as having paid to get to the top. If people wanna blow their money on something that's not even real then I say let em, eventually the game will die like all other games and they'll be left with nothing except wasted time AND money.



Like many people I wish this path had never been started upon; but it's just too late now really.
