As a returning runescape member I honestly cannot wait for mobile to be released I have done a ton of research and watched others play the beta version and so far I am not disappointed and genuinely wish to play and give feedback daily regarding Rs3 I hope I'm picked as one of the lucky people to participate in beta
None the less I would love to be part of the testing phase do you have any suggestions or things that made playing on phone or tablet easier? Do you think its only going to be good for skilling? And how did it run on said device?
I think the interface is fine honestly, you might not find it as easy to do big bossing events, but general chatting and skilling works great, and people have still gone really far with killing Telos on it, I just wouldn't recommend trying it personally.
The performance of it runs really well, there's a lot of optimisations that can be done for the mobile devices that don't apply as much to PC's where they're far more noticable on bigger screens. The main problem, development wise, is the Android phone GPU market is hell. You can't tell people to "just update their drivers", the game has to work around the flaws rather than rely on them being fixed.
There'll be an uncapping of the beta at some point in the future, we don't know when, but it's expected the next beta push won't have any hard limits (bar being a member).
I think it's quite neat as well to see some of the problems that occured when developing the game, cos it shows just how trippy engine work can get at times.
Do you think they'll open up beta to everyone or a select amount? Those are some pretty trippy pictures! Also from what I've seen the interface doesn't seem bad I'm sure there is room for improvement but, it works. My plan is to push mobile to the max doing everything from skilling to bossing quests and much more.
From how I interpretted the last article they released on this, the next time they change the Android beta limits, it will go from the current 75k users to however many want it, but they need to be RS members to use it.
For iOs, there may be a beta a few weeks prior to full release and it will be significantly capped due to Apple restrictions, I think you can never go above 10k and you have to use other apps to manage the beta installs to even do it. Not 100% there though.
I have beta access and so far on my device it has been running fairly smooth, i even have dungeoneered on mobile without any major lag or random crashes. Being a beta i am sure Jagex will be still tweaking things before it goes live to all users.
