TH did so much damage already that even if it’s removed, nothing would change. Old players won’t come back. Current players won’t enjoy the game more. Toning down on promotions and keeping th cosmetic would be a courtesy for the players, but we know jagex too well, that this won’t happen.
To get old player to come back, current players to enjoy the game more, and more importantly to attract new players, games like EVE don't remove loot boxes, they add Mutaplasmids that give random chances to give better drop.
Still think a TH is bad? Still think Jagex is greedy? Look at how the other games are faring with their declining playerbase, finanancial data and players reactions first. Jagex is on the rise in all these categories. Just a few complaints from a few players in these RSOF but almost nowhere else won't change a thing. I don’t care about other games because they are unappealing to me. If only there was a common denominator. Oh yes, p2w micro transactions.
I wonder if mtx is so successful in driving people in as you say, why does osrs have more players and no mtx yet. Jagex is losing on the opportunity of a lifetime there.

You don't care about other games then you don't have to talk about them, but look at all these 85 pages, a lot of the discussions are based on comparison of RS3 to other games. Of course, you have the right to remain silent if you don't want to talk about other games with the other forum users on this thread. Thanks.
OSRS don't have more players. They have more concurrent users online, perhaps but even so their number is dropping really quick for them. It is approaching mid day of the busiest and usually the most concurrent player day of the week, a Sunday but OSRS only shows 84k concurent users, far
The thread only talks about other games is because you keep bringing it up. Osrs have more players, and giving me numbers of osrs players compared to numbers of osrs players only shows that you want to hide real statistics that support my point. 84k players on osrs vs 25k players on rs3 is more players in osrs in my books. So if you gonna start using numbers, at least know what you are talking about.

It was 110k before mobile release. Went up to 150k due to hype. Now people realised that mobile was a dumb idea, so numbers fell back to 110k. Nothing to do with mtx. Any more great questions?
So the RS3 number must have everything to do with MTX but OSRS numbers must have nothing to do with MTX. Very "interesting" logic. Dont change the topic with some stupid “interesting logic”. Osrs has more players, regardless if you think it’s mtx related or not, that’s fact number 1. Osrs doesn’t have any form of mtx apart from bonds, that’s a fact number 2. Runescape 3 has th, Solomon store, runemetrics, mtx featured events, and occasional runepass fiasco, that’s fact number 3.
Now, your argument is that other games have players and mtx = profit. I show you that osrs doesn’t have heavy mtx as rs3, and it’s performing better. Are you going to deny that that is the case?
