What do you guys think will be the "final" MTX update? Will there be an end to the MTX Menace? I'm expecting more off the top of the head Lamp promotions like "Rainbow" lamps and "God outfits" that are overrides that make you look like a RS3 God and will certainly not require Sliske's Endgame despite it being accurate to lore.

I'm not saying I want Jagex to add these brainstorms as a part of their MTX endgame but I am wondering if the only reason Jagex will only recycle MTX promotions instead of endless new promotions is because they actually ran out of ideas.

Not likely, but I'm still hoping.

Thoughts?

It'll be similar to the type of events that are in game. They won't do anything so egregious that it totally ruins the game.

The video game industry is very creative in monetization. There will never run out of MTX ideas.

For instance, the Season Pass which gives Fortnite a lot of money actually was a failed experiment in DoTA 2 a few years ago. Epic just recycled the idea and put it in a refurbished Battle Royale game mode.

There are plenty of old MTX tricks in old school Asian MMOs that Jagex has yet to use. For instance, the all-or-nothing equipment enhancement system where games like Black Desert use, in which you buy special enchantment stones that give better odds than the ones somebody obtain by playing. Successful enchantment gives the gear a +1, failed enchanemtnet gives it a -1 with a chance of totally destroying the gear. This is a very nasty RNG based MTX system but it is not even loot box. :D

There are less nasty but more popular RTS kind of time skip/speed boost system Jagex can use too... like buy a 3 hour skip in your Base Camp for 100 Runecoins or buy a Story Skip that skips a quest for 500 Runecoins, etc.

These are just a tip of the iceberg. There are plenty of MTX tricks in many other games we haven't seen in Jagex's games yet. :D

I guess the MTX endgame to the video game industry as a whole is the removal of monthly subscription or replacement of the access to the entire game by bonus items/perks to the members.

In other words, MTX in the forms of TH, Runecoins and Bonds will be a lot more prominent than they are now. Not this year or next, but in 5 years... :D
