So with everyone constantly upset about the constant promotions, I thought it was time I put my two cents in. I am indifferent about MTX and here's why:

I have a busy life, I work 50 hours a week and have very little free time. As such, whenever I find an hour to kill and log in to Runescape, I don't want to do hours of tedious grinding just so I can actually be capable of doing what it is I wanted to be doing all along. So what do I do? I purchase bonds to sell on the G.E. and proceed to use this gold to level my herblore so that I can get overloads, things like that. I earn enough money an hour at my job that I have plenty of cash laying around, I live modestly and am not particularly materialistic. It is much more time efficient for me to buy my gold rather than earn it the honest way. Most of you think this defeats the purpose of the game and ask yourself: why even play? I purchase bonds/ spins because it expedites the process of being able to do high end content. I am paying to skip a large portion of the hours it takes to earn the hundreds of million gp that it costs just to spend 12 hours to actually level herblore to 99.
I included this little bit so maybe help some of you understand the side of the people who you despise, it's because I value my time more than my money. Runescape is a great casual MMO and fits right into the niche I am looking for, however certain aspects of the game are far too monotonous and repetitive.

Now that i've made my support for all this clear let me tell you my problem Treasure Hunter in and of itself is an alright thing, but these constant promotions that make TH 5x more rewarding is a joke, as well as bad for business. Nobody is buying keys when there isn't a huge promotion going on. Jagex has dug themselves into this hole where if they want MTX revenue, they HAVE to be running promos because the customer has become accustomed to it. Rainbows End particularly upsets me because 1 thing: wining 200m on the 7x multiplier....

finally someone who gets it.

More MTX on a daily basis means less and less revenue in the end.

But with constant promos I am less not more inclined to buy keys. i might get if there is a new outfit or something. But just xp promos or "rare" *cough* items like rainbow capes and parasols i just don't seem to care about. When they had the dg outfit, i did buy keys. I didnt with wc as i hate wc but with most of the other promos for outfits i bought keys. Even the arc map one i bought keys. But silly cosmetics and xp which imo is pretty easy to get anyway does not intice me to buy keys. The richest person is not who has the most. It is who Needs the least.

you can only sell ice to Eskimos for so long. Eventually they realize their ice is just as good.
