Was the Fossil Island Expansion in RS3 added too late? OSRS beat us once again to the punch although we did beat them for Menaphos and Prifddinas. Was there any way the Fossil Island Expansion could have been added earlier or is now the only time it could have been added? And for the love of god, please do not add another (elite) skill this early.

I don't know whether "too late" would be the correct way to describe this. Time will tell whether this will be good content that will be playable for many years to come, or whether it will become dead content within a few months. Hopefully there are things to do that keeps players coming back.

Also, what's wrong with adding an Elite diary? It will give players something else to do, especially those that have high levels and completed a lot of quests.

An Elite Diary is a 1 time playable content that requires full exploration and may require quests and skill levels to obtain an outfit piece and benefits.

An Elite Skill is something like Invention. The OP does not want a new skill, had nothing to say about diaries.

Anachronia is going to be added just in the right time for the month of Fireworks and Celebration.

Not that sure about "Fossil Island" though.

Different games have different content. One may ask if it is too late to add cosmetics to OSRS? Perhaps it is too late because RS3 has beaten OSRS long ago and now OSRS suddenly knows they need partners and Mod Sheen said OSRS players asked for cosmetics things too...

So, different games have different content. I think in RS3 most players think maybe it is a little late for the game to get fascinating modernized content such as Big Game Hunting, but there is nothing being too late or too early. It is the quality of the content the players enjoy that counts... it is the quality of the game Jagex's Partners approve that counts even more... :)

Anyway, I think most players will ask if it is too late to ditch the damn dumb outdated uninspiring training methods in Menaphos when they see the modernized RS3 content.

Ah, I misread the OP. *facepalm* I thought it was "diary" instead of "skill". I agree with this then :P

What do you mean "beat"? Neither game wins something by having content first, that the other then gets. If anything, it's better being second, so one game can learn from the mistakes of the other.

It's not too late. Hopefully there will be Menaphos-like city quests that require a lot of seeds so that sweepers get a pay raise again!
