No. RS3 is doing the right thing for not polling everything. In fact, in today's Runefest Reveal, Jmods made such a comment:

"I think this shows the problems even OSRS face about polling something complex or new. That's why relying solely on a poll system can be problematic."

Polls can help Jmods in a certain way but they should never be used solely to determine what content to or not to be added to the game. I support Jmods to use their industry and business knowledge, as well as creativity to design and implement content in their games.

However, as I understand it, that's exactly how it's done in OSRS.

So, why is RS3 getting the short end of the stick? RS3 and OSRS are serving two different purposes. OSRS is an attempt to keep people who liked the game the way it was happy. Since its purpose is to keep an existing player base happy, letting that player base veto new content is consistent with that purpose.

Keeping a big existing player base happy... is one way to make money from RuneScape - and RuneScape the game is a service offered by Jagex... the business.

Another way to make money from RuneScape is to bring in new players. To have the game grow, instead of shrink as the existing player base dies off or wanders off.

That is the role of RS3. That's why it gets changes like the Evolution of Combat - which started this whole mess - the NXT client, and other changes that may be distressing to existing players because they somewhat devalue their past accomplishments. And that's why changes aren't controlled by polls in RS3, even if they are in OSRS.


RS3 is not "getting the short end of the stick". In fact, the comment I quoted showed RS3 think OSRS is getting the short end of the stick rather.

If you are playing OSRS you should know they have heaps and heaps and heaps of never-ending problems with their Polling System. It never satisfied everybody. In fact, majority got turned away by minority and caused uproars. They hardly can come to an agreement in passing major polls lately. That's perhaps why OSRS has revealed almost nothing this year in Runefest. Their existing playerbase certainly are not happy.
