Sad to see Jagex doing this :-(


Thanks for your thoughts. It's important to emphasise that Block * Load is a completely separate studio to RuneScape, and this particular event has taken up no development time our end.


If I'm not mistaken, this game was worked on by Jagex? If Runescape is made by Jagex, to say it's completely separate would not entirely be the case then. Resources that could have went to Runescape has instead went to Block * Load.

If this is the case, please use resources to improve Runescape, not some game that has nothing to do with Runescape.

Lol... as if other game companies only do one thing... Really? They have separate teams working on separate games.

Yep, I know they do. These teams have worked on games such as Transformers Universe... which is now gone. Remember Mechscape? Stellar Dawn? Scrapped. They do have FunOrb, but do you know anyone who still plays this game which has not been updated for years? All I see is resources wasted on these games that could have gone to the one that I pay for. I don't know about you, but I think they should stay with what they're good at; Runescape.

Are you joking? Lol.
"All I see is resources wasted on these games that could have gone to the one that I pay for."
That's kind of selfish of you!
Realize just because you don't play it doesn't mean other people don't enjoy the game.

Jagex is a gaming company, not a runescape company.

And the mods who work on RuneScape do just that - they work on RuneScape. No resources are taken from RuneScape and given to other games. New hires are made for the other games.

RuneScape is not affected by Block'n'load, and if there was no Block'n'load, there would be no difference in resources. They are separate.

In other news, played 10+ games and got dwarven warsuit in Block * Load but got no email for the RS outfit even with a confirmed email :( Sad.

I don't think Gi*u is suggesting that resources are being actively diverted from RuneScape to this new game. The point being made is that in the past, there have been a handful of attempts by Jagex to break into a new gaming market and generally speaking they have not been as successful as one might have hoped. So the money might have been better spent on hiring more people to work on RuneScape.

Of course, success is achieved by continually persisting through failure. Time will tell whether or not Block * Load does well. I have no reason not to hope for its success and will be trying it out for myself once it finishes downloading.

I want to cry.

Development team isn't the issue. We all know the Jmods hired to work on that are separate from the Runescape team. But this isn't the concern. The fundamental problem is MONEY. If this game doesn't succeed it's more monetary funds poured down a well.
Players paid membership, bought bonds, spent money on Treasure Hunter and Solomon store and where does all the money go?

Down a money sink you've created yourselves Jagex.

Please, give it some rest and rebuild your finances before making another game. Also you need some time to recover lost reputation.

Please.

This is an advice many players have given. Although at the end of the day it's your company so we can't make the decisions.
