how many more players would they need to reach to make it viable economically. (better than with members) with ad revenue and everything else that was discussed earlier

do you have these numbers?

and do you have any numbers to clarify that jagex will reach this player base?



The ad revenue question, no specific number if Jagex is making let's say 1 mill a year , then they should compare their income from F2p scenario to the membership scenario.Just compare numbers, once again I can't travel to the future for us.

Sure meme your way out of this. Since you can hold an argument rather than throw a tantrum
We've explained the Fortnite thing, just go back and re read if you want.

Tenebri, good thing I'm here - I'm a math guy, so I got your numbers :P

The fact is that ad revenue brought in was negligible the last few years they had ads, so we can't really use ad revenue as a proxy.

According to surveys conducted among gamers, between 16% and 29% (depending on the survey) decide to buy microtransactions in games they play. Also, about 80-85% of most game company's microtransaction income comes from about 10% of its players.

If we assume that the average microtransaction income roughly equals 1 membership, that means that RS3 would need to multiply the numbers of players by 4-5 for the money to equalize at current rates.

If, as I suggested, Jagex instead leaves about 20% of the game as P2P and leaves membership as an option for that, this number reduces drastically.

To incentivize MTX more, Jagex would also likely have to alter the types of MTX offered. Much of this focus would likely be what many players call "Pay 2 Win" but is pretty essential in any game that uses only MTX for income.

I'm not advocating at all that making more of the game F2P is a magical fix to the decline RS3 is experiencing - it may just be a band-aid or temporary solution. But I am glad that someone is at least discussing solutions. For too long, everyone (including Jagex) has hid their head in the sand. (Hell, Jagex is making ANOTHER MMO, hasn't their millions they've wasted developing other games taught them to STOP? That's what's eventually gonna do RS3 in.)

oooft 4-5 times

if the assumptions are correct.

ouchies

It wouldn't be a gamble with the right marketing, and Fortnite is not the only example, just a good reference for its populariy. Another big success is League of Legends which is Free to Play. “League of Legends” is a massively popular game worldwide, with huge followings in some countries, including South Korea.

In January 2014, the game had 27 million active daily players, 7.5 million concurrent players at peak times, and 67 million active monthly players.
How many did RS have in 2014? Not even a fraction.

League of Legends, the wildly popular multiplayer online battle arena PC game is "free-to-play" as well. But "free-to-play," like "freemium," doesn't really mean free - last year, the game generated over $1 billion in microtransactions.

It's laughable how little you know about FTP games success.
I bet you can't belive it, a FTP game made 1 billion in 1 year.
