Is honestly not all that special to me (Keyword here being TO ME)

Now, grab your seats ladies, gentlemen and Yu-gi-oh addicts (No I don't play it)



Combat diversity beta? Didn't ya'll already announce that beta a while back? Not even a real update cos that update won't be launching in to the game officially any time soon.

Summer escape? Basically winter weekends but without the minigame bonus. Amirite?

People still do clan cups? I'm amazed at this revelation. Oh wait. Given we are in 2019 I'll just assume those type of events are more dead then Trouble brewing or team dungeoneering outside of leeches.

Vic the trader? Whoop-de-do. More recycled stuff. Truth be told I'm amazed ya'll didn't lock it behind the bond summoning feature. +1 for that at least.

Splat pack? Don't we already have something extremely similar to that on SGS? Oh well, least its' not a TH lootbox exclusive.

Annual survey? Another one of those? Why do you even bother?

Bank placeholders? That was supposed to have came out back in 2017. Sad part is it's not even coming out this month.

And don't forget the summer 'skill-off'? How could we ever forget the grind to 15k in less then 8 days event?

2 more days to grab the summer special? Please, if you had a decent aura that came with it like you did other times I might have been inclined to grab it. Alas, disappointment seems to be the running theme in life as of late.

We also still have time to grab our tickets for the best runefest ever? Didn't ya'll also say 2016s runefest would be a amazing time, Oh yeah, I remember ya'll saying that and look at how 2017 turned out. I still remember this post, by the way. I can't believe I used to browse on Facebook. Oh, heres that post:

https://www.reddit.com/r/runescape/comments/7mnb9u/this_facebook_post_did_not_age_well/

Well that's about it for me. Now if you'll excuse me, I'ma go watch Sailor Moon and maybe a bit of Pokemon.

Ciao!

Yeah all i saw was MTX MTX and.... MTX.


This also confirms the article from Pcgamer was a lie about fossil island, jagex gave them false statements.

We would agree that regardless of the profitability of the loot box trade, the risks associated with them are worryingly high

So, 1 content update (Weapon rework)

Then a summer week event to keep players playing/attracted.

and the rest is MTX...

Disappointing..

They didn't talk about the beta (since that is already out), they talked about the full release, which will apparently launch some time here in August.

No. Right now we have no plans to remove the frequently occurring free Vic the Trader."

As seen there, they never did plan to remove the regular Vic when they introduced the portable version (for now anyways).

Like how ppl don't read anything at all.

Portable Vic was just a promo and I hope it happens again.

Nothing special but content like Bank and Weapon Diversity Reworks are what players asked for.

Bank Rework is actually a bonus update as previously Jagex prepared to do it after RS3 Mobile. And don't forget many players, including the ones in the forums said it is their most wanted update.

Kinda reminds me of that another "live service" game that had a "road map" the company was supposed to follow for months after the game's release... Anthem I think it was? Jagex pretty much had the same situation: promising things when their previous promises left much to be desired, making people doubt them and, surprise surprise, Jagex didn't commit either.

If you look at the Month Ahead video, during that part of the video, only the portable Vic is seen. Now, if Jagex was more trustworthy, it could be easy to believe that it was just a coincidence, but Jagex strives to push the MTX ever more aggressively, and they've gone back on statements with "right now/for now" wording before (because using those words can easily distract people who are unaware of how Jagex operates, whilst allowing Jagex to easily back out), so it wouldn't surprise me at all if only the portable Vic made a return this time.
