Hi all,

After seeing how this years raffle as handled in September, I think it has been made clear that events like this affect the games integrity.

1) This event actively encourages trolling. Jagex has ignored criticism from previous years and made this raffle easy to rig. This has resulted in some players (Mostly one player) rigging the system, diluting the reward pool for legitimate players. As there is only a set amount of rewards, actions like this should be against the rules. However, both Jagex Moderators and Forum Moderators have stood in support of this kind of behaviour.

2) The way this handles shows Jagex's true intention. Jagex have chosen to focus on maximizing their profits rather than protecting the integrity of the game. Some updates are made to encourage trolls to participate (E.G the Spamming banner from Solomons). jagex should be avoiding these kinds of situations where they sell trolls an ability to trol further for money, however there hasn't been anything set in place to stop this kind of behaviour.

3) If actions like this are encouraged by a lack of action, people will retaliate in response. As seen throughout the month, others were making fake threads saying they have 300+ accounts as an attempt to bait players. Since the forums encourage these kinds of posts, they are actively inviting these kinds of trolls. I can foresee that next year when the raffle is added again (Because lets face it, Jagex will add it again), this kind of trolling will happen on a much larger scale.

4) There was a lot of backlash in the beginning of the month from this. Jagex covered up the backlash by having more backlash in other areas (As players focus on MTX's). Keep in mind that Jagex don't just care about maximizing profits through only microtransactions, but by adding updates for trolls to utilize.
Don't stand up for whats allowed, stand up for whats right.

As a grand buyer of bonds for real money and selling them for gp, noty keep the alt armies. Don't trust a rose by it's appearance, it's thorns will still sting you.

It's the same with humans, some have opinions and some are just crazy.

Since OP is muted, here are the New Rules (Modified From the original rules as well as Recommendations from a F-Mod):

1) Try to give critique or feedback related to the raffles implementation


2) If you disagree with the poster's opinion, rather than argue with them create a new thread with your own opinion.

I am quite sick of the updates that are designed to gain more profit despite their main purpose being to troll.

Examples

- Achievement spammer banner
- Drakes
- Raffles

Maybe my current stance doesn't appeal but I do agree with whom I assume is OP's alt above me that the raffle does need improvement and that their purpose is more to make money than to let players have fun. I wouldn't call it a troll update like the others his or her alt has listed because it's more of player intent to misuse the updates as opposed to Jagex encouraging trolling rather than making money.
