That quickly? Seems as though your hatred towards MTX didn't run so deep after all, if you'd celebrate for that. They could still do some promotions in December without involving an advent calendar, or there could be a new level of hell waiting in January.


Well, I say celebrating in the same way as we may celebrate a tiny victory. Because I'm expecting this to only be a tiny stay of torture until December when it'll flare right back up again. If they keep the promos away through December, it might show just the tiniest pinprick of light.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting it. I'm just saying that even the tiniest bit of hope is worth clutching onto.
Fullblown non-playing lurker since 26/06/17. May come back if both the devs and the MTX team get their bloody act together.

I'd call it a calm rather than hope given their history, but yea, we'll see what happens.

wait.... isnt MTS like 50% of their revenue? that could be bad if they remove it

just saying

That'd be incorrect sir. Jagex's financial statements are readily available to everyone on the internet, so go ahead and use that Google search engine. Statement for 2017 obviously isn't available yet, but from the 2016 and 2015 statements it's very clear to see the following:

1. MTX as a whole (not just TH) made up ~34% of their revenue in 2015 and ~36% in 2016, not 50%.

2. On both said years, even if they had completely removed all MTX (and bear in mind also, we're not asking for all MTX to be removed here, only TH), they would've still made quite a lot of profit. Heck, if TH hadn't existed back then, they might've made even more than they did without it due to people quitting the game because of TH.

3. In 2016, the membership revenue and # of member accounts had increased compared to 2015, so a decline in playerbase is no excuse either because there was no decline when they started pushing out TH as aggressively as they did. The controversies with TH didn't start this year, the situation was already terrible in 2016, with 2015 showing signs of it happening.

So in conclusion: no, removing TH wouldn't be as bad as you think, Jagex would easily survive without it.

Don't you all see the big flashing arrow every time when you get a TH key token drop now?

I don't think I need to tell you how much more Jagex want you to go hit the TH button. :D


That might be a bug.

What bug? It tells me I earned a key and the flashing arrows invites me to click a button to win a big prize. ;)
