You completely changed two iconic locations in Runescape for anyone who has previously played the game. Lumbridge and Draynor village are probably the two most visited cities when you're a noob, and you changed them both without a poll, and when not a single person asked you to.
The pub at least uses the same building, and could have possibly passed a poll if it laid out the reasons behind the change and how it will help new players find their way.
The dock next to the iconic willow trees in Draynor, however, is a huge mistake. It ruins the look of the entire area, and moves the ship over a miniscule amount. Why is there suddenly a ship leaving a brand new port when there is literally a port right next to it that was perfectly fine? Not everything in this game has to be changed so that people will find it easier. Exploration is one of the main points in an MMORPG, and you're slowing killing that off by changing up locations that have been untouched in decades. Honestly, use your heads and revert it and find another way to help out the newer players, rather than dismantling everything that was nostalgic about the game piece by piece.
I wish I could have been a fly on the wall and know who to blame in particular, but this is absolutely ridiculous and the entire team is responsible as far as I'm concerned. Soon you're going to have the people that care about the game no longer caring, because it certainly seems like you're just catering to the mobile players now and in effect ignoring those that have been around forever. If you don't poll things what's the difference between this and how we ended up getting EoC?
The updates lately are becoming a serious problem and as a community manager I expect more from you than what we are currently getting. There needs to be more communication on all platforms. It's okay to be wrong and make mistakes, but it's not okay to gloss over them and ignore backlash when it doesn't fit with your narrative. Step up and do the job.
World Rota Change, w24/w25 don't have as much lag issues as related to w19/w18 as bh worlds , majority off people can pk fine on both w24/w25 that isn't case for w19 ,it lags for even some us players who prefer uk worlds , instead of having non laggy worlds both open , can you instead do something and maybe have both w19/w18 open as bh worlds.
You can even ask any bh streamers/pkers about this.

The ship has no business being in Draynor. For all they years i have player (since 2005, new toon) Draynor has had no dock and honestly does not need one. Moving the ship from Port Sarim to Draynor makes no since and does in fact destroy the old fabric of one of the last unspoiled areas in the world. Consider moving the ship back to Port Sarim were ships belong.
