How can us the playerbase help Jagex come up with anything, like a website or a multiplayer game that is not connected to RS3 or OSRS so Jagex has something to fall upon if either game dies? (Not saying either would).

How do we help them become bigger than Blizzard? My suggestion for Jagex is to resume production on Stellar Dawn. This game could be big as Titanfall if done correctly.

Jagex needs something else other than RuneScape to fill out its portfolio. And this could make the company look better to the Chinese investors and maybe even get Jagex to become independent again.

FunOrb was a failure yes, but we can help Jagex do better. We must help them do better. This sounds weird to say, but why is Jagex so terrified of Risk? Big Risk, Big Payout.

So...

You think crowdsourcing on the forums will come up with better ideas than the brainstorming of several hundred employees who know the industry?

Ok. Good luck with that.

One question though: why have Jagex make new games instead of another company that isn't run by greedy shareholders?

Runescape is unfortunately tied to Jagex, so it can't really be helped anymore as long as it's owned by those delusional shareholders, but there are still plenty of game developers out there who, believe it or not, want to make games that are fun to play and which are fairly monetized (e.g. you pay a one-time fee to buy the game and you get everything in it for that price, a crazy concept, I know). Surely you'd want new games to be made by those guys instead?

Hell, weren't the Gowers making a game of their own? Why not help them instead of Jagex?

We, the players, don't need to do anything special than customers to any business. We just play their games and pay if we want to. Nothing else, and nothing to be worried of.

See how this super streamer of WoW Classic reacted to "WoW Classic is dying"? That's right, he admitted it and said it is just normal:

A new game about Anja would have huge potential. Player would start as a kid and meet Anja at school. Anja would become their best friend and they would grow up together. Who knows what else could be possible. Think about the potential.

I would of course be ready to support Jagex, Jeremy. I'd pay $50 per month if I could marry Anja.
