Halowa all!

As you probably know, this is an incredibly exciting time for both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape. As such, we have been trying to increase our visibility with you guys, and will be trying out a new set of play test days - here at the heart of all things RuneScape, Jagex HQ!

These play tests will be providing vital information and feedback, allowing us to improve upcoming content.

We will be hosting a number to play tests on over the course of October, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and we can't wait to get you involved!

We want to open the opportunity to yourselves to apply, and you will be selected based off the answers to the questions given.

Here is some important information:

1) To apply to come to these play tests you must be 18 years or over - we will require you to bring ID to prove this.

2) You must be available on one of the dates set, you can select multiple dates - but we would require you to attend.

3) Applications will be open until the 12th of October. You may only apply once.

Those who are selected will be contacted via telephone, from a member of the Jagex Team; before a formal invitation is sent we will ask further questions on the call. Don't worry, this isn't an interview! We just need to make sure you fit.

If you match our criteria of what we are looking for, an offer will be confirmed on the phone and then more details will be sent over email.

4) Any player who is selected to come along would need to make their own way to and from the Studio, at their own expense.

5) You would start at the office at 10am and finish at about 4pm. It would include a Studio tour and lunch at the office.

6) Any player who takes part in a playtest will do so under a Non Disclosure Agreement.

You can apply here, using our helpful Survey Monkey; all of your personal information will be deleted after six months.

These are not the only invite days we will be planning, so don’t worry if you don’t meet the current set of requirements. More chances will come!

Good luck!

Kind Regards,

Community Management Team
Community Manager! @jagexpoerkie

Wow, a company as profitable as Jagex still can't even pay for the travel expenses of their free QA workers, when there are companies that not only pay for the travel expenses, but the working hours as well. Come on guys, you can well afford it; stop taking advantage of the passionate playerbase by making them pay to work for you. > /

I'd really like to know what Jagex thinks is an interview then, because I'm pretty sure that under the normal English language, that right there is what you'd call an interview.

For once, I agree with everything Blackwing says.

Imagine asking for free QA and not even paying for the trip to HQ. I know the actual JMods can't do anything about it, but the people on top are 100% treating this game like an easy cash cow and dont give a single fuck about the players.

I think it's amazing what Jagex is doing. Sure, they don't cover the expenses but you have to realize that, if they want to make this a regular thing, it'll add up to a lot of extra costs. Try seeing it from their perspective as well. It's really unfair to call them out on something like this, they're doing a great thing by involving the community.

Surely you must be trolling?
Literally every gaming company I know covers the expenses of the players if they ask them to help them with testing.
Also, looking at the numbers of profit Jagex makes a year they can easily fly over a couple of players, hell they could even offer them a fulltime job and stay at a fancy hotel.
This is just another case of corporate greed, nothing else to it.

Nothing unfair about it. You're asked to travel there to do free labor. Playtesting is an actual job that people get paid to do when done properly.

I'm no expert but im quite sure this would be a short call from not being legal in some countries to have people do work that they're not being compensated for in any way.

I'd love to pay $1-2,000 to briefly travel and playtest future dead content - sign me up, please!

Kidding, of course :P. C'mon Jagex, this is silly now. You'll keep getting the same locals negating any form of feedback variance if this crap continues. Ya'll know what you're doing.

I would like a free vacation from Canada too please.


I would be interested in knowing how many people apply, and how many are accepted. I'm also curious about how feasible would it be to do these test days over the internet. Is that something that might be considered in the future?
