can we get a usa bh and pvp world that is more in the center of the country than the west coast?


being in the center of the usa and using a west coast usa server is equivalent to living in ukraine and using a uk server, let alone living on the east coast of the usa

WOW you implemented a failed poll question regarding the weapon categories. The question failed and you implemented it anyway. Why even bother doing polls anyone? I am legitimately upset about this update. Your attack style interface changes have sucked so far. OSRS the most difficult game of 2019 no easyscape allowed!!

The problem most people have with the attack style interface is not knowing which category is what. The actual problem is they 'think' they have it set to one style, but might not.

How about letting them see what their settings are somewhere. It could be an NPC or some setting under one of our interfaces. Just somewhere to access and change the default settings would be nice.
My Suggestions:
Cross Minigame Reward Shop - waiting since December 26th 2013
Spelunking - non-combat raids

It's nice to see mini-games being worked on for the first time in a long time. I would love to see Castle Wars get an update. The rewards are extremely outdated. Back in the day, you could hop to almost any world and find loads of people playing. Now, there are only two themed worlds, 334 being the only "busy" world. Back then it was all about fun, now it's about fun AND experience/rewards. I'm not saying add a bunch of BIS equipment to the CW reward shop, but I think adding rewards that would encourage more people to play the game should be considered. Instead of hosting a DMM tournament that's almost solely based on luck, host a 5v5 CW tournament with like 64 teams, two loss elimination. I would love to see that.

It passed with 77.8%... They have told us countless times that the websites poll results arent accurate because it counts the skipped votes. You have to do the math yourself for the real %. If you add the yes and no votes together you get 52,427. Now divide 40,805 by 52,427 and you get 77.8%.

Regarding the Tithe Farm minigame nerf which I responded on in the last blog but didn’t get an explanation on. Here I repost

“I am just a bit sceptical about the Tithe Farm minigame. Has it been thought through to how this layout would be changing the rates at which you can farm the plants in Tithe farm?

In my personal experience on my farming training, I have been using 3 patches from south to north on both sides that is 6 patches in total, I would be able to do them in a circle and reducing the walk as much as possible, harvesting 20-24 plants every round. (20 plants would require those 6 patches as I would only use half of the 2 southern patches( or northern patches if you like).
Therefore this change seems to me as having ruined that method, which wasn't the purpose of the Hosidius rework in the first place (I am sure I am not the only one who used this method for farm training as I found it on Youtube).

My suggestion to make sure that the method can still be used is to change the Tithe farm to 3x4 patches instead of 2x5, because it would also make it able to race your friend who can do the same method with you.

I hope you consider my view.”

Still wondering why the tithe farm nerf hasn't been addressed. I proposed a solution months ago, before the change even took place.

Miu said:
I can do over 20 crops at once with the current tithe farm setup.

Under the proposed tithe farm change, I doubt that would be possible. And if I were to attempt such, I'd pretty much be locking out another player from doing tithe farm on that world.

If you increased each crop row from only 4 patch slots to 5 patch slots, you'd pretty much give everyone what they need.
Don't forget – RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!
