Treasure Hunter = Soul Gem
Solomon's Store = Reality Gem
Runepass = Time Gem
Bonds = Power Gem
Runemetrics = Space Gem
Buying tickets to runefest with bonds = Mind Gem

Jagex has completed the MTX gauntlet. What's next for the mad game developer?
Perhaps when they snap their fingers, half of the current RS3 population will simply quit from the excessive MTX?

The point is how can we solve jagex's revenue problem to not have to rely on MTX?

Well, I don't know how the gauntlet works, but if I can guess how it does, then this definitely fits: Treasure Hunter turned the game into a soulless cashgrab. You chose well with this one. :P

Simple: remove the MTX which will result in increased membership revenue.

It apparently doesn't rely on MTX. It mostly comes from Subscriptions according to what they said at some place a while back.

But even then, I'd have a hard time believing literally anything that was said at that place given how in that same meeting they said RS was not a addictive game which is ridiculous.

@ Blackwing.

MTX will never be removed, it's too late at this point. Asking the heads of Jagex to remove MTX would be like asking literally any gamer to quit playing Runescape or literally games in general forever. It just won't happen.

I thought they removed the ability to go to runefest by paying with bonds...? 8 200ms. Founder of Jamandy52 skilling clan. Love skilling. Love minigames.

What a weird comparison you just did there... I mean, a gamer who stops playing games forever would no longer be a gamer after the fact, but a gaming company that develops games for profit changing how they make that profit from their games would -- get this -- remain a gaming company that develops games for profit. :P

But yeah, I've said it before and I say it again: only thing certain in life is death. Thinking that MTX is an absolute because it has made an intimidating appearance in the industry doesn't make it larger than life, especially when all it takes is one human being to delete the MTX part of the code from Runescape. We might be living tough times in RS3 now, but whether it's due to enough many players slowly but surely voting with their wallets, the government catching up with the times and adding regulations (not ideal but the company would reap what it sow), or whatever else may happen, just like people thought your real-life wealth would never impact your success in Runescape, times will change, sooner or later.

Either go find a single player game to play, or play Jagex games like they are single players games and ignore all those who pay for MTX.

Every big and sucessful multiplayer games has MTX now.
