blackwing would you rather have dailyscape reduction as this summer's expansion or fossil island in rs3? Remember this is jagex they can't do both.

Can't answer that, since it's an illogical question: reducing something doesn't expand it. If Jagex reduced dailyscape in the game, it'd at best keep the game roughly the same in terms of available content, and at worst remove some of it, which goes against the idea of an expansion that adds lots of new content.

But I can tell you this: I'd much prefer dailyscape reduction prioritized over the fossil island in general. As long as dailyscape is as rampant as it is, you don't have time for permanent content much anyway.

It's just a lazy manipulative try at player retention and it is failing horrrrrrrably. It's like some jEAgex higher-ups went to some fancy conference and got thought all the latest manipulative bs and figured out, hey, we can fuck all deliver fun and engaging content to the player base, we will just smother them with this bs + mtx, teehee, arent we the smartest. The most hated man in all of JaGeX. Greed is NOT Good!

Well, funny you should say they went to some fancy conference, because a few years back there was this "let's go whaling" conference where it was explained how mobile games milk their players for money, and one of the tricks involved what's essentially dailyscape in Runescape as well:

This recent bs will come back and bite them in the ass at some point, luckily. I give it max 1-2 years with the dwindling player base as it stands. The most hated man in all of JaGeX. Greed is NOT Good!

Didn't you and the usual few make similar prediction of "max 1-2 years" more than 2 years ago in threads like this?

Hmm... Jagex is making more and more money actually now >2 years later... Hmm... Dwindling "player base"? Hmm... RS3's "player base" is actually increasing the last few months. Perhaps you see the dwindling "player base" from another game? :D
