1 actual game update (M&S rework)
1 patch week (follow-up to the above)
1 recycled event with added MTX (wolves)

Those are the updates we've had so far in 2019, and this week has been confirmed to be another patch week... sigh. Whatever happened to MTX ensuring more and better actual game updates? Nowadays it's like 1 type of players is satisfied per month, usually PvMers or at least it feels that way (PvMer myself too), when you could satisfy 3-4 types by having 3-4 actual game updates per month, one for each type. You guys have many dev teams there, so what gives?

Please Jagex, if you genuinely can't keep up with the updates, just decrease the monetization already and remove Treasure Hunter & Solomon's store. Whatever the problem(s) is(/are), it's certainly not related to the money you're receiving, since you're always making record-breaking profits. If you can't deliver accordingly to what you charge, charge less.

pretty sure it was voted on weekly updates regular or bigger ones less often, and bigger won. imo we should get 3-4 big updates a year. you expect way too much.

They acknowledged after menaphos that menaphos styled updates are a failure, since the price of not getting relevant updates for too long was too steep. This is why the second and third big expansion they had in mind was cancelled with the second one partially released as invention batch 2. Smaller updates just have the big advantage to provide a wide coverage, while not overflooding the game with too much stuff at once - also can focus attention quite well.

I mean - as long as they do not have too many patch weeks in a row it should be fine if they're releasing 1 medium sized update (i.e. m&s rework, deep sea fishing), 1-2 small sized (i.e. overgrown idols) ones and 2-3 patch weeks or 3 small sized ones + 2 patch weeks within a 5 week timeframe. If somebody expects something the size of the m&s rework each week one should really question their sanity.

I am sorta glad that this summer sequence of 7 or 8 patch weeks in a row last year seemed to remain an exception though.
