what happened to timer? went from 4 min back to 10 min

We had a brief internet outage at the office in the middle of starting the countdown, so half the worlds didn't get it. It seemed safest to restart the countdown for all worlds instead of risking having half the worlds not reboot.

when you combine 2 tentacles do you get back a tentacle ?

No.

Now we must pray that there is a sire disorient change question in the poll

Yes.

where are all of the big updates? Thursday used to be big update day and now it's just combining 2 items, and an agility shortcut >_>

Not every week is going to be an update the size of Cerberus or Zeah, or anything like that. Even if everyone wanted the game to keep changing that fast, there's no way we can deliver big things that rapidly. With Jed working on the Monkey Madness II quest, there's naturally less big stuff coming out just now.

also, why are there so many SDMM worlds now? the hype will die out in a week - 2 weeks just like it did with deadman mode.

And then there will be fewer SDMM worlds, like we did with Deadman mode.

I thought it would of been a better idea to have as few DM worlds as possible to force people to collide which was the point of DM mode.

We thought 6 would be enough at first, but they all promptly filled up with 2k players each. So we added a couple more. We look forward to being able to reduce them again.

Is removal of the Kourend only limit on the Tithe mini-game teleport on the poll by any chance?

No. Go see what is - the poll is open :)

Nice job guys, one further request, is it possible to insert log-out mechanics similar to those of the Fight Caves in Nightmare Zone in order to save progress/potions and money?

For the endurance mode, I think we did something like that. But I'm afraid Rumble parties are rather different, since they're multiplayer.

Why have you made guarded areas unattackable? Its deadman mode, the whole point is that you are never safe.

We looked for ways to avoid it, but ultimately players kept finding themselves attacking without wanting to, and we'd rather sacrifice the (relatively uncommon) game mechanics that involve legitimate combat there instead of having so many people constantly feeling they've been messed up. It's a shame, though.

great job on the guarded zone update by the way, people suicided way too often to kill low levels !

I guess it suits some people :)

Ash, this is digressing slightly but where do we stand with regards to revamping the combat triangle? I know you mentioned previously you had intentions to strengthen mage...

I'm personally very cautious about revamping anything to do with core parts of the old school game. While it's not necessarily how we'd design it today, the combat of OSRS has been described by many players as the thing that makes them play OSRS rather than RS3. I'm entirely happy to have us poll incremental changes, e.g. a buff here, a new weapon there, but even those often get criticised as OP or unsuitable for the old school game.

About the tentacle.. Are we able to keep adding tentacle's to the whip as long as it's below 20k charges?

Yup. The rule is that you can combine any two tentacle whips provided their total charges don't exceed 20k.

Any news about MM2?

Jed's nearly done putting together a bare-bones version of the story. As the GFX arrive from Mod Ghost, he'll flesh it out with the boss fight and other combat, and puzzles, and gradually it'll become a fully polished quest.

Keep an eye on @JagexJed and @Jagex_Ghost to see if they preview anything.

Bro! you can missclick on Safe area Becouse its deadman mode + there was option to hide attacking other people.

Auto-retaliate nevertheless sometimes led to grief.

By the way, there's spelling mistakes in some of the questions...

Thanks. Fixed.
