I'm afraid I didn't really care for this years' Easter event. I'm still doing it, but I looked up what happens on the OSRS wiki.

It's stupid. Real stupid. Feels like you guys gave up on something that could have been hilarious, 'cause the ending feels...tacked on? I get that it's a holiday event and I probably shouldn't take it seriously. I wouldn't say it's a complete fuckup either, but I just don't think it's that great.

Ah well, the reward looks like one of my favorite RS3 Easter items! That makes up for it!

EDIT: Why, though, did you reuse assets from MM2? That waterfall in the cave under the island is a bit...reused.
Oh, I almost forgot.
Oh, I already forgot.

So you decided to fix skinny arms issue with dragon chainbody. When is the time to do the same for fighers torso? What about fremmenik helmets giving bald people hair? This has been a major issue for years

What exactly is so major about this again? It's not exactly game-breaking...

Stinko pls

Tbh i'm gonna have to agree, and not just because we share 1337 titles which no other mortal is allowed to own.

Same could be said for the event in rs3 this year, honestly. Both feel rushed, unfun, and just kind of lackluster. The rewards are subpar, and the dialogue is forgettable. Wester island looks nice, but beyond that there's nothing really to write home about. All the imagination and what could have been God Ash tier humour was sapped completely from it - I understand you guys are hard at work making Zeah 2: Electric Boogaloo: Codename: Fossil Island (Which come to think about, i hope that's not botched either), but holiday events have always been a staple of the RuneScape experience. And when they continually go on a downwards trend of holiday events being lackluster, (The 2016 Xmas event was just a lazy plug for Xeric) people aren't going to bother to partake in them.

It makes me sad to see the downfall of holiday events in general.

Anyway, here's a meme because its the oldschool forums

Seasonal events take a lot of time and resources, we have a relatively small Jagex team working on OldSchool and they have a massive amount of content that they are working on, naturally they will have been working like crazy to get everything that has passed poll into the game asap. Seasonal events are seasonal, they may be used once and then put in the archives, that's why there are aspects that are used from the game or prior seasonal events.

The ending was a little unpolished I agree, but credit where it's due they've done a very good job of fitting it in during a very busy time for OSRS.
