Either way JAGEX is gaining money which will be used on the game we're all here ranting over.


Have you...been playing the past few months? Have you seen the amount and quality of updates, or the lack thereof? Like, let's look at the time since October. Outside of patches, know what permanent content we've has since then?

We've had the Combat Pets, some updates to the systems (Tooltips / Revolution), and the Evil Dave quest.

Take a step back and really look at it. Unless I am mistaken and there's a big update I'm missing, those are the ONLY updates that have not been temporary promos or events.

"The money is being used on the game." Really. Really?

Tell me, exactly what percentage of the revenue made from The Lootbox Infection is going into updates, as opposed to the corporate overlords mandating this? Really look at the updates we've been getting and give me your answer.
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 don't agree with your view on that, there has been a lot of qol & ninja updates, which are real updates.

If you were claiming everything has been introduced bug free then your view would be valid, they've moved in a direction to fix stuff, which I think is good for the longevity of the game.

Ninja & qol directly add to enjoyment of interacting with content.

You realize it takes time to create content right? They don't just pull it out of a hat for us.
And who in this game actually does know the percentage of Treasure Hunter revenue.
What a stupid question.

Where else do you think it is going? What company would hire hundreds of people to build a game and keep updating it for 17 years, and pay them out of their own pocket? Nobody.

...Kay, I WILL put my hands up here, and say that I do half-agree with you. Yeah, they have been putting a far bigger focus on QOL/Bug fixes. Thing is, in the past they were doing a lot of bug fixes per week AND getting out updates as well, but I do see your point.

Uh, yes. I know it takes time to make content. I also know that they were managing it just fine up until last year or so.

As for the percentage thing, I meant it as a rhetorical question, and I wasn't meaning it as "How much of Jagex's revenue comes from TH", I meant it as "How much of the TH revenue does Jagex actually get to see, as opposed to the investors?"

Which leads into the final point. I fully see the employee's wages as money going into the game. Again, what I was getting at, was that I'm assuming that the lion's share of the profits are going straight into the Chinese investor's wallets.

It would be nice to know that the profits, or at least the vast majority, are being re-invested.

Banks in Australia (& likely worldwide) have a really bad reputation, & they are always doing these pr ads to say how amazing they are.
There's 1 in particular that makes me laugh cry vomit.
They have this really positive sounding person telling us that almost 80% of profits are being re-invested (& how fantastic that is!).
It makes me ask do we have so many stupid people that this is an effective campaign?
I'm outraged when I hear that ad, because all I hear is they're taking over 20% of their combined tens of billions of dollars in profits every year right out of their customers pockets.

Just an aside.

What happened to removing Second Chance Tuesdays?

Oh look, Rainbow's End is back! On Tuesday, for one day!

And stop giving ingame pop-ups! Membership was meant to remove the ingame advertising.
