Potentially implode the entire Runescape 3 economy in a single night, why is no one talking about this?

Jagex is reassuring us but I'm not at all convinced, obviously the update is gonna blow up in their face but the question is how? If this update happens without a hitch it would have to be a near miracle and the first time in the modern history of this game. Literally every big update had game breaking bugs, but this one directly effects the economy and the cost of literally 1 overlooked item could cost individuals or the entire economy several billions of gil.

There's no way an update this huge would not completely destroy the economy.

This update is directly intertwined with mining/smithing rune items, their alchemy and the gp that is generated is one of the main pillars of this entire economy. It's a complete restructuring of this entire economy which has existed since the dawn this game has began.

It's like the entire human race moving off oil or the gold standard as the basis of our entire economy, except this is all within one night. Several industries are affected not just mining/smithing but also the Nature Rune market, etc. Some could literally completely collapse overnight if they are suddenly made completely obsolete.

In fact the only method Jagex has proposed to insulate the economy from this atom bomb is to personally compensate every last citizen of Runescape by replacing the stockpilled objects being updated, with another random item of similar gold value.

Do I have to explain even explain how absurd this is? There is no real world analogy I can make for comparison to this and I have studied History and the financial details of ancient societies and their economies, even the Pharos did not believe themselves this omnipotent as to control an entire industry of their economy at a mere whim.

This is like Iraq going off of Oil or Japan not making videogames and Anime. At this stage you have to ask legitimately? You could show a financial analyst the details of this economy and they would go insane. Did they bother to consult anyone? Any kind of financial specialist on how to safely implement such gamechanging technology with having the smallest possible impact to the economy? I'm gonna wager no...

This is the financial equivilant of chopping off a limb and waiting to see if you bleed to death. It's a fatal wound on the entire economy. Are you that freaking blind?

As you can see from the happenings of this recent clue scroll update, it does not exactly inspire any confidence this one will go off without a hitch...

At this point it is even not farfetched to conceivable they are doing this on purpose, they are British after all and are literally killing this game with their incompetence.
