"The chance of clues swapping or progressing into the same clue has been significantly reduced. This change has been made with particular thought for those using the Globetrotter outfit."

I would like this clarified in the hopes than I am misunderstanding it.

To receive the same clue twice in a row was always fun.
We'd report it to our clanmates.
"Hey I just got the same clue twice in a row! :D"

This was not something overpowered, it was rare & a cool happening of clues.

If I am reading the update right, this will no longer happen.

It wasn't something overpowered, it was something fun.

I'm very disappointed with the person who decided to reverse this, if I am understanding the update correctly.

I guess - especially for rerolling it is a good change - if you don't want a specific clue (so much you would reroll it), you really wouldn't want to see the very same one after a reroll.

As for regular progression it was a fun sight (I even had some talk to NPC one on a master one thrice in a row), but I guess I could survive it being gone. It wasn't that common after all.

It doesn't mentioned removed, just significantly reduced, so it's not an impossible outcome. I have still received back-to-back clues involving digging between those 2 benches south of the Legends Guild clue, but it's definitely quite rare now.
Hard -> 3a Range Top (#357), 3a Full Helm (#439), Barrows Dye (#1755)
Elite -> Shadow Dye (#510), Barrows Dye (#680, #1567), 3a Druidic Staff (#969), Sack of Effigies (#972), Ice Dye (#1539)
Master -> Barrows Dye (#480)

Which would make receiving the back to back steps even more exciting now since its rarer! Meaning OP should be happy for this change, right?
