Thanks for listening to the community! I know you guys get a lot of flack but in my opinion this is exactly what I(we) signed up for. Runescape is an ever evolving, ever growing and changing experience. some desicions better than others. but making a public statement in response to feedback, often "colorful" in lagunage im sure, is outstanding.

I'm on your side jagex, if I wasn't, I wouldn't play. Can't wait to see what unfolds in weeks/months/years to come!

Just because Jagex listened to the community, it doesn't mean they will act on it. There is only one way to end Treasure Hunter, that is for people to stop buying up keys and making the stakeholders money.

Right now key buyers are as bad as bots as they are enabling Jagex to suffocate the game with TH promotions. This includes people that take those surveys or watch advertisements, Jagex is still making money off TH and that is BAD BAD BAD!

Don't buy keys on Treasure Hunter, if you do Jagex will only make more TH promotions :(

You keep messing up because you sit there and try to analyze data. No real game designer cares about that nonsense, they just make cool things that become popular. What have YOU done Osborne?

The biggest issue that I have, is that some of the more interesting promotions requires people to buy the most expensive key package to obtain the rewards.
more than 300 keys for beyond the arc promo, more than 300 keys for the lucky item promo (which only guarantees 1 RANDOM reward).

Simply put, if the paywall is TOO high, then there is less demand by players to purchase keys to finish a promo. So lowering the costs might make you appeal to more players.

Initially I thought the arc promo required around 40-50 keys (5 chest x 8 maps) for the rewards. Even if was 80, I was willing to consider buying keys as the rewards looked cool.

I was also willing to buy keys for the butterfly promotion, as the necklace and teleport really appealed to me.

But it was too expensive for me to consider!

I don't mind a constant stream of promotions, as I don't feel attracted to 99% of them, but in that one time I actually am interested, the costs are too high for me to spend over some pixels.

Hopefully a rerun will be given of these promotions with our current progress, just like the recent '2nd chance'-promo's

I was actually considering blowing all my earned keys on the promo myself. Then I checked the forums to read if there were any customers that were ripped off. Sure enough there were and the complaints were well versed.

So with this latest Treasure Hunter promo Jagex has once again proven that this is all just empty words.
Just a post intended to appease the angry masses, while not having any intention whatsoever of actually listen to what they are saying.

Typical

When we first sat down to design The Arc ľ Chapter One, we wanted to get the gameplay right and we were more interested in giving you satisfying XP rates than item rewards. We got that wrong. You need more than just XP rates to tempt you to play ľ in the case of The Arc ľ for up to 30, 40 hours.


And yet we still got the shitshow that is Menaphos.

You've either learned nothing, or you just haven't cared enough to avoid making the same mistake again.
The fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, Fulton, and the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
