I'm really fond of the 30 minute countdown timer as oppose to the 10 minute countdown we used to have. Thanks to whoever made that decision.

Launching Raids kinda prompted it. Though there's also a warning on the Chambers' entrance on Thursday mornings, telling you that you might prefer to come back another time.

no hidden updates this time?

Can't think of anything. When we've done a mid-week hotfix, sometimes we do a different version of the code for the permanent solution, since we're very limited in what changes we can make via hotfixes, so there'll be a few of those thrown into the update silently, but no actual behaviour is due to have changed.

Nooooooo! My void :( Why can't we just have an option for both?

If the poll for changing it had failed, that would likely have been the next thing to try. But a pretty substantial supermajority of players seemed happy to have the change applied directly without needing to introduce alternate forms of the items and a recolouring system.

the prices of the prayers were fine they're the best prayers in the game why make them drop often and make them dirt cheap.

I think there's a very wide gap between their current prices and "dirt cheap".

mod mat k said he would hotfix it at the last q&a stream thanks for the great updates

I don't remember him saying that; it has never been possible to hotfix new items into the game, so any such offer could not have been serious (or sincere).

.... i was hoping for this update... its realy annoying to buy it compeeting 30players.... or more can u guys please do anything about it (for ironman)

I'm personally more inclined to introduce items from actual gameplay where possible rather than making it all about clicking on a shop. We've got some actual content designs in mind for a source of those items too. However, if my colleague says he's going to hotfix something instead, I won't stand in his way.

How come you change things like prayer scroll drop rates without polls but then poll these clearly more important things like slightly changing the colour of dark crabs or adding a couple new afro wigs to the game?

We didn't exactly poll you on the original rates of those scrolls. It was pretty apparent after launch that the design we'd chosen wasn't suitable, and when we've just released something that's clearly unsuitably balanced, it makes sense to address it rather than enshrining it permanently in its bad state. Apart from such fixes, yes, we do expect to poll new features coming into the game - and while cosmetic stuff isn't important to some players, others feel very strongly about it.

but why cant ironman get it from nmz shop?

Bear in mind that in late 2014, when Iron Man mode was being designed via a series of blogs and polls, there was a strong sentiment that NMZ was an unsuitably easy source of stuff, and not appropriate for Iron Men. This may be because the minigame itself hadn't been around so long at the time, and had more AFKing than it does now. I'd be open to changing the Iron Man restrictions there, by the way.

What about all this lagg last week, alot worlds i loggin i get connection lost, and lagging so bad...

The sysadmins are doing what they can to block the cause of the network disruption. While players occasionally wonder why we're doing game updates when all that's going on, frankly it's not something the OSRS team can help the sysadmins do better, so cancelling game updates wouldn't help.

As for your bank closing while you're logged in, I'm afraid I can't guess at a cause from the info available there.

If you world-hop, you are indeed logging out anyway. Your login session on the next world is completely separate.

Any idea why the prices of silver ore and silver bars have dropped to almost 1/4 what they were? Is the new silver jewelry acting negatively on these prices rather than positively?

The number of those items coming into the game was huge in the weeks leading up to the update, since players went out of their way to get lots of them in preparation for the update. And now they perhaps have too many.

The aim of the update was not to make the items cost more. The aim was to give them more use. Which they have. Frankly, if we'd just wanted to make them cost more, we could have just set their alch value very high, in minutes.

It should be an item only the true pvmers can afford, they'll pvm and therefore get rewarded with an exclusive prayer, but thats just my opinion ofcourse.

It's not exactly common now, just a bit less phenomenally rare than before. And the difficulty of completing a raid to get it has not changed in this update. Though where you've said "only the true PvMers can afford [it]", that suggests you're linking in-game wealth with being an elite PvMer, which isn't necessarily the case.

Changing drop rates aren't a good thing to do and its very unprofessional.

Leaving unsuitable drop rates permanently and refusing to consider that they might be wrong would also be unprofessional, but thanks for your feedback.

Could we ever see the idea of instead of being sent to your re-spawn when killed by Zulrah you could just be teleported outside where you can reclaim your items?

Frankly, the fact that you can reclaim stuff when you die to that boss means it's already relatively low risk, and we're not in a rush to make it even more convenient.

But wish it was polled first be for it was changed, like jagex did when they polled trying to fix dragon defenders pink tint.

It was. Poll 50, question 4.

You missed to spelling clay golem for your list, there are 12 golems on the image and 11 on list

The original golem (which happens to be roughly clay-coloured) would be the 12th you're seeing.
