We have here in future game updates an increasing number of very elitist and toxic posts (some of which have been made by the same individuals) asking for 120 all skills or 120 especially in summoning because 1-99 is extremely easy.

This dxp, which stacks with bxp has catered as an excuse to change the game only for ELITISTS - I’m not even talking 99 maxed here or the completionists with 99s all skills with the odd 120s for comp.

I’m talking about the stuck up, head in the clouds 200m or 120 maxed players who think the game should be leveled to their standards based on things like this dxp weekend.

Reasons for why dxp is unfair:

There are those that keep missing on dxp. For me, I can’t participate because I’ve got an extended shift this Saturday to make up for a four day holiday next week. And on Sunday a family meeting at dinner.

Well fuck, I could only participate in dxp last night for two hours after work because dxp started from 8 pm for me and I gotta go to bed at 10 pm for work today.

Even for those that have time to play, doesn’t mean they have times that coincide with dxp does it?

End result: People miss out while others make loads of xp and think themselves gods after getting 120 in skills hard to train like summoning. I’ve never complained about missing out on dxp and wanting to make the game fair by removing dxp completely forever until visiting the 120 summoning threads on future game updates. Nor am I ‘jelly’ about others progressing faster than me. But it broke the camel’s back when those players felt dxp that stacks with their th bough bxp is the normal playing style that justifies the game getting easy and needing 120 in all skills.

It is NOT normal.

And before anyone thinks this isn’t a problem let us take a gander at what these infuriating, toxic and elite posts have got to say:

PS: Aside from the arrogance there are also a lot of untrue exaggerations such as maxing summoning 120 from 99 in one day (some even say 9 hours) on bxp, which is complete bs.

Least toxic quotes. Just very boastful and untrue:


“The whole point of 120 sum is to make it more useful
That being said, it's so fast to lv up that I don't see why not, if you forget the time to gather charms, it's even faster than invention
I support 120 sum”

“its like 10m xp per hour
get 120 slay and its done soo who cares
in my op push all skills up to 120 its not like the game getting slower is it”

“I want 120 summoning, and I'm not even 99!
It's so quick to level playing Runescape now, most skills could go to 120, but they need content if the skill goes that high.”

“Not sure why you mentioned "already takes over 2000 hours to simply max". Summoning takes literally 1 day to get from 13m to Lv.120 during a BXP weekend. (Some even 200m...)
This isn't slayer. I'm all in for summoning. :D

“People managed to get more than 150m summoning exp in a single day during BXPW.
This is somewhat the fastest skill out there. An extra day or 2 on top of the 2000 hours, shouldn't be a problem. Players that play at a slower pace, can aim for an extra 2-4 days.
So yea, I do not see the problem.”

“120 summoning from 99 takes 10 hours on dxp, getting 99 is hardly a feat. The charms would've been grinded out along with 120 slayer and the gp cost is actually quite low. Geyser titans, the most expensive ones by far, only costs 11 gp/xp, outside of dxp. 5.5 gp/xp for a 10m xp/h skill is extremely cheap. No other skilling methods with this xp rates can come close to competing with this gp/xp cost, even on dxp.“

Most toxic quotes:


“But why? There's so much potential and could make pvm more interesting with new and niche abili-
Oh its because you cba to train to 120... ok then.”

“Why is it because you don't have 120 summoning virtual yet? I bet if you did have it you wouldn't be saying no lol.”

“How is that possible lol? I'm only 124m slay xp and not even close to 200m in combat skills, and I have enough charms for 200m summ for coming dxp in September.
Also trim comp'd like you, if that somehow changes things.”

“”Plus, you don't lose max cape if it gets made into a 120 skill.
Plus, what's 90m summoning xp anyways? You can get that in a dxp weekend, in 9 hours.”
Pretty much.
It seems like they arent trying hard.””

Conclusion:


So the solution to keep the elite sectors happy with 99s and cosmetic 120s as originally planned?

Remove double xp weekends and stop bringing them back. Keep the skills at 99 and stop polling 120 summoning or 120 this and that. It is unfair for those without the right time to participate already, but even more unfair when those who could take advantage felt the game is too easy now and want to level everyone’s playing field even though there are those who struggle without such support.

Since some people fail to see the issue, I’ll, albeit reluctantly, shove the threads of main concern regarding the future of rs:

Threads I support:


More Rework Less 120
Don’t Make Summoning 120
Arguments Against 120 Summon
Please Rework the Elements

Something only the elite mobs would say regarding the 120 summoning hiatus we have on future game updates.

Or perhaps one of those who enjoy sadistically curb stomping lower levels who also don’t have much time accessing dxp.

I’ve seen you support 120 summoning (though haven’t called you an elitist just for that), but if you don’t see dxp as a problem for you, why even want 120 if you need dxp to boost to 99 and ‘make it easy for you’?

All I can say is I invested heavily in Mahogany Planks. I did this 7 DXP's ago(I haven't played since then) and made a hefty profit! As it stands now, I'm set to lose GPs :@ Thankfully, not as many as I did when they overhauled Treasure Trails and all the Third-Age stuff I invested in during my hiatus crashed and I lost BILLIONS.

That is true



The rest of the comments are off the forums which means they can should be ignored.

Thats great. You can't benefit from a DXP weekend so lets take it away for everyone. I wasn't able to play on the last one, this one I can...why should I and everyone else miss out?
