Let's talk about this whole vic thing.

I genuinely don't believe what's been announced these past 6... 7... weeks passes nowdays for 'recent game updates'.

It's just more MTX and future speculation. That's all it is. This game is being bilked dry as jagex becomes aware of the dwindling player counts, and has to entice the payout whales to keep paying out somehow on the road to max.

Could you have imagined this back in 2009? Gold selling? Exp selling? They even lie about the total number of players in-game in RS3! Artificially inflating it with the OSRS numbers despite it clearly being made to look like it belongs to RS3. Unbelievable.

Even this mobile announcement and Vic. Who asked for this? Was there some substantial outcry for a source to dump bought exp into?

I'm guessing not. But hey, now instead of playing the game you can be rewarded for completing transactions! Spin to win! This is ridiculous. Vic isn't a game update, he's a band-aid to cover up the money-extracting endgame before RS3 dies.

This week's update is more proof of this. And as per usual, dissent will likely be silenced or moved to a dead forum to keep eyes away from the truth monetization strategy- i'm suprised that "state of game updates" thread hasn't been quashed yet.

This. Recent. Update Is not. Content.

Vic isn't what players are asking for? Why even have the annual survey if it's just going to be ignored anyway like last time?

And the bankwhales reply. Of course it's in the interest of the heavily invested to deny the reality of where this game is headed.

The player count went down down down from 49k to 12k.... you cannot deny this http://www.misplaceditems.com/rs_tools/graph/?display=avg&interval=qtr_hr&total=1&mid=1567232389

So did the OSRS "player count" went down to 70k from 150k but so what?

Meanwhile the true membership count went up to over 1.1 mil and Active members keep getting attracted to and retained by Twitch promotions.

Jagex is breaking records in revenue and profits too. All should thank Umbral Chests, Lootscape, and MTX, etc.

Sorry to the delusional ones, in the real world companies and their games need real money to survive. They can't give their employees a graph of "playerbase" from just whatever non-Jagex Website as their paycheck, especially when their paycheck "playerbase" graph just shows ONE DAY. :D

Video killed the radio star. Spins and sins made rs3 redundant.


The smart one of course will be the Video star. The Radio star may be dead content becuse they are the dumb one who failed to evolve.

Should Jagex tell us they have sinned many many years when they brought Bond into the game? Of course not because otherwise they would have died. Not that they are holier than thou but they are certainly smarter than all the dead MMOs.

i literally can not even tell what you are trying to say. you can zoom out in the graph he posted to see the player count in rs3 dropping across a 6 year span if that's what you are trying to say? the rs3 player base drops by over 50% across 6 years while OS grows by about 110%
