#3874734 personalized shops is the very LAST straw jagex

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 08 September 2009 - 11:13 PM in Rants

I believe that this update actually improved free trade. This is a very rare good move made by jagex. However, untill the GE is removed, the problems will remain. They will continue to warp the economy.



I also notice that they are working to get rid of junk, in order to force their highly inaccurate and inflexible GE prices on everyone.



#3765194 Chasing Perfection: Jagex's Quest for a PvP Utopia

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 26 July 2009 - 02:24 AM in General Discussion

You've brought up some valid points. I can only hope changes are made. Current pvp is much more complicated than the old wilderness. Back then it was a simple system. Simplicity is always better.




As I've made abundantly clear, Simple ? British. Sorry.






Lol, it's funny because it's true.



#3765164 Once a great game. A story/Rant for veteran players.

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 26 July 2009 - 02:09 AM in Rants

I already know that, so why would I need to hear it from you? The majority of what comes out of your mouth is nothing but the same crap Grandpa Lou says. "Back in my day, we used to pay 15 cents for a hamburger!" It's called nostalgia. Humans always seem to think the past was so much better than the present. Your name tells us everything we need to know about you.




This wasn't a distant, long dead era. This was less than two years ago. I can't discern anything else of any relevance or substance in this entire paragraph. It's very boring and tiresome to respond to TWO posts, and now you're making me read sensless garbage? Give me a break, please. Keep the wordcount down to a minimum, the eyestrain is too much.



You're right - nobody ever ranted or complained until those specific updates. Everything was perfect! :roll: I have some breaking news. Runescape doesn't revolve around you. Stop making it seem like the updates you don't like killed the game for everyone. Loads and loads of people seem to be fine with how RS is right now. Also, loads of people ranted about stupid crap well before those updates you're talking about. You just seem to think that if it has to do with you, it's suddenly way more important than anyone else's problems.






You claim I said that no one ever complained about updates, but I never asserted that. Nevertheless, you'll find that due to the recent lack of updates there is complaining from people like questers, and skillers and others who normally don't complain as much. It's not just us selfish, rude, ignorant PKers anymore.



I also never even so much as implied that the game was killed for everyone. I am well aware that about 90% of the players of Runescape spend the majority not PKing. However, the remaining 10% that do PK, and the ones who PK regularly, ARE paying customers, and DO deserve to have the system overhauled in a decent way. (or better yet scrapped and brought back to the good ol' days)



#3765111 Once a great game. A story/Rant for veteran players.

[quote name="Moad14"]
[quote name="TheDayRsDied"]I'm getting tired of all this garbage about the decline of "maturity". There was never a period of perfect intellectual greatness in this game (thank god).[/quote]
[quote name="TheDayRsDied"]Was there so much idiocy and ignorance and stupidirty in this game before miniclip? No.[/quote]I'm not sure which side you're on; please explain your position more clearly.[/quote]





If you, during your clearly bizarre, obsessive dig through my posting history, were a bit more thorough, you would find many posts about stupid people, and stupid people being held to account long before I made the "intellectual greatness" remark. I have complained again and again about the possibility that JagFAIL defended people who were killed in the wildy and lost their stuff. In fact, I think the very first topic I ever created was entirely aimed at idiots who whined at jagex because they lost their stuff during PKing. I later learned that the updates were more due to credit card fraud, but that does not mean that the [bleep]ing and moaning from the losers couldn't have played a major part in their decision.



The wildy update did not remove that sort of stupidity (in spite of claims that it matured the community), and nothing ever will. People still complain that they lose items when they lose, and always will. But in recent times, in my opinion, there is a lot more of that kind of complaining. I don't have a "idiocy meter" or anything like that, thats just my opinion.



What I was responding to, and what I have responded to repeatedly, was the nonsensical idea that RS was once some kind of elitist community of fully matured (Look at Compfreak's posts during the time my message was posted), college educated geniuses. I was also responding to the part of Eatrunearrows post that said the community mostly consisted of "smart players". This is an online game, and it was never like that as far back as I played, and probably was never from the first day.

Right, well you and everyone else who opposed me can keep pretending that pumping artifical wealth into the game doesn't inbalance the economy. And you can also pretend that the old system created moreartificial weallth than this one, when it didn't create any.



Everything else is identical, except that this one inbalances the economy and the old one didn't, and somehow, this one is better.



#3763655 Stuff I hate about RS

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 25 July 2009 - 05:43 AM in Rants

I've been playing RS for awhile now, and here is just what really annoys me



Price limits

trying to work the ge but having my character click out of the window and run away all the time

language filters

the stupid formula for getting stuff pvp



feel free to comment or add to the list






Yeah, we used to have no price limits. They are here to stay. The formulas are, too. They might tinker with them from time to time, but they are bascially here forever. Expect the formula to become more bizarre and ineffective as time goes on.



The language filters are a little annoying, but do you ever really need to use those words to do what you need to do?



The GE situation happens to me too, I don't know why that happens.



#3763648 Love it or Leave it

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 25 July 2009 - 05:36 AM in Rants

I think it is better aimed at the serial complainers, who constantly post rants about every small detail and update.



Still think it is funny how they still play a game they think that little of. :lol:




Perhaps they are complaing about the fact that the update IS nothing but a small detail.



#3763638 Once a great game. A story/Rant for veteran players.

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 25 July 2009 - 05:32 AM in Rants

This isn't a story, it's an accurate depiction of exactly how everything went.



You can babble on, but these things caused huge imbalances in RS. It was all so much better before these dreadful, ill-considered, sloppy, low quality updates.




I can't put my finger on it, but for some reason you remind me of the grandpa from the Rugrats.




Oooooooooh, you're so clever. You're so witty. You're so sophisticated. Is that what you wanted to hear? Are you satisfied? Then piss off.



You and your little pals can keep spewing your sloppy arguments, and i'll keep tearing them apart cannonballs tear through wet cardborad.



Was there ever an inbalance before a certain few updates? No. Was there so much idiocy and ignorance and stupidirty in this game before miniclip? No. And, before that particular bad update, did jag have to spend so much time "fixing" pvp? No.



People are trying to personally attack Eatrunearrow in order to dance around the merits of the argument. It's obvious.



#3763204 Once a great game. A story/Rant for veteran players.

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 25 July 2009 - 01:07 AM in Rants

I've played since November 2001. This "story" is a load of [cabbage]. Lol. That's really all I can say. What's wrong with Third Age being the fabled armor instead of Rune. What's wrong with Combat being the profitable skills instead of Mining\Smithing. Are you saying you liked fatigue?


Agreed.

#3763183 Love it or Leave it

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 25 July 2009 - 12:59 AM in Rants

Yes, there a number of posters on here who just can't come up with a good argument, so they have to resort to the "Love it or Leave it" argument.



As far as i'm concerned, people aren't going to be enthralled with every Jagex update, and if you can't make a decent aregument against someone who doesn't like a given update, then you just need to step aside.



#3763168 Chasing Perfection: Jagex's Quest for a PvP Utopia

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 25 July 2009 - 12:52 AM in General Discussion

Lots of the people who quit did not quit right away, they slowly quit as they became bored with the game. This number is not countable, but i personally know many who became bored with the game and cancelled.



That update totally and forever unbalanced the Trade System, and pvp. Since you will always need an unbalancing, unpredicable factor in order to throw off an RWTer, you can never have a truly balanced economy as long as PvP is a part of it.



Very big mistake to do what they did, as far as pvp is concerned. Total disaster.



#3761392 08-July-2009 Mobilising Armies + patch notes

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 24 July 2009 - 09:21 AM in General Discussion

Astounding. You actually used a small number of facts in your response this time. Good for you! This post might take effort to demolish, however minimal.



[quote]Lol, Omali isn't even ranked on MA high scores. He hasn't even played the game and he is judging it to be good. Even though Thedayrsdied is usually wrong, I guess Omali is wildly off the mark this time, lol.[/quote]



That was just brilliant, except the part about me being "usually wrong". You completely ruined a perfectly good post with that little aside. Why did you say that? How am I "usually wrong"? What the hell does that even mean? I have never lost a single argument, although I did lose my temper and make a complete [wagon] out of myself multiple times. Have you ever even read many of my posts? You are obviously nothing but a loser, I am not "usually wrong".



[quote]Really? Numbers? A few people whining? My numbers: Those who are still playing and enjoying the mini-game, numbers that far outrank those who are complaining about it.[/quote]



I suppose that if you took the raw numbers of people currently playing on a MA world, V.S the number of people complaining on here, MA would look very good. Unfortunately for you, not everyone who plays RS posts here. Proportionally, the number of people complaining about it here, as opposed to the angry loud mouthed crew of defenders such as yourself, is not favorable to MA.



I suspect that as soon as the novelty wears off, MA is history. Its a rather dull, repetitive game, according to those who have actually played it for a significant length of time.



[quote]I've seen people with decent spoils of war at higher ranks. While the mini-game appears to be more of a money-sink than a reward generator, I will concede that most of the rewards are small boosts, while being more similar to Castle Wars offering exclusive costumes. As for it being "bug infested" that's something you have to expect when pushing new boundaries.[/quote]



Castle wars offers small boosts, but people like castle wars. It is a widely liked game, wheras MA is a bad, sloppily released game. there were too many bugs in this game, it should have been checked better. It was a very terrible release.



[quote]Nonsense. I give the same advice to anyone; If you're not enjoying the game, then stop playing it. If you really believe that Jagex fails every time, then stop giving them your money. Why raise your own blood pressure and rage when there are a myriad of other MMO's on the market? Give your two cents, and if it isn't followed up on, quit. Hell, pick a smaller game like Darkfall where you could probably get some 1-on-1 time with the developers.]/quote]



Its your trump card, your typical argument: ZOMG EFF U DON LIK3 IT TH3N QUIT3 T3H RS D00000DZ!!!111!!!111!!!. Honestly, though, I have a hard time coming up with a good argument against it. Why should I raise my blood pressure? The answer in my case is that while I find most of the updates here to be uninteresting, I still enjoy some of the remaining parts of the game that they haven't butchered, like Slayer.



You made the statement that people should give feedback to game developers. As an example, I and many others said the PvP system was horrible, and BH wasn't that great either. Apparently those complaints registered with Jagex, because they tried to change it, and they keep trying to change it.



There is nothing wrong with me registering my opinion on the game. For example, I am well aware the style of PKing used in the glory days of RS PKing will probably never return, but I would like it to be as simmilar as possible. And thousands of others registered a simmilar opinion. And guess what? JagFAIL (thanks, eatrunearrow) responded to that. They ended BH and announced a goal to fix the problems and make it more like the wildy of old. They responded to all of those "stupid whiny kids" you always rant on against. In the end, They did it rather clumisilily, but they did DO IT.



You say you don play RS much anymore, but I do play because I like to do the Slayer skill. When I am doing slayer, I come on here an complain about updates I don't like. When you are uninterested in updates, you don't play, or play minimally. That is just a difference in preference.



#3757187 08-July-2009 Mobilising Armies + patch notes

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 22 July 2009 - 07:35 PM in General Discussion

Oh, it's you again. I was hoping that you had left in the intervening time that I had not posted here, but apparently you still haven't found anything better to do. I'll demolish this foolishness point by point. It is rather obvious that you use elaborate, multisyballic words to pump up your empty, emotion driven drivel.

Considering it's the first of its kind, I'd say it's a very good update. They took a lot of chance with this mini-game, and it's turned out to be a quality mini-game.




A statement that obviously contradicts the general consensus here regarding this horrible game. There is an overwhelming number of people who make a one-time posts condemning the game, and then leave. The few defenders of the game are loud mouthed and angry, but that does not mean that they've got the numbers on their side. You have your vile little attitude, but I have the numbers on my side.



It was an idiotic assumption, yes, but your idiotic assumption. As for the gameplay, premise, rewards, delivery, concept, and idea, that's your opinion. And considering your pension for whining, not an opinion that can be taken seriously.




The game was released in a horrid, bug infested state. That covers "delivery". There were many bugs, which seems to be a tradition for Jagex in recent years. The general consensus was that the rewards and the gameplay were rather stale, according to the majority of players here. I konw that you have little regard for the general consensus, but it is there. I will concede that the other points were just opinion.



And yet you're still here. Feel free to leave whenever.




Empty drivel from a very sad man with no real points to make. I don't have to be enthralled with every update that Jagex releases. Or, as eatrunearrow cleverly pointed out, a better moniker would be JagFAIL.



That's because you don't have the intellectual prowess to do anything other than whine and complain. You prefer to watch because it's the only option that won't make you look like even more of a whiny, uninformed child.




Nonsensical blithering. I certainly have the intellectual prowess to to prove my points with facts, unlike you apparently. No, I watch because I am not a game developer, and thus I don't have the credentials to make any meaningful suggestions. And watching is considerably less boring and exhaustive than coming on here and tearing apart a bunch of ignoramuses like you.



Recipe for internet success: Call those who disagree with your whining "fanboys", and call them ignorant. Disregard the people who actually like it. Make no real points. Success!




I didn't disregard them, I debunked their mindless drivel, and their pile up and smear of eatrunearrow. He probably doesn't care about the blabber that goes on here, but I couldn't stand the idiocy any longer.



#3756369 08-July-2009 Mobilising Armies + patch notes

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 22 July 2009 - 09:24 AM in General Discussion

another horrific update. This game took nearly a year to develop and it is a very bad joke. What a disaster. Very low quality. I thought that this game would bring back the glory days of RS, but what an idiotic assumption. Bad gameplay, bad premise, bad rewards, bad delivery, bad concept, bad idea. It's a good thing that they took their time, though, it saved me from having to see this for another few months.



Between Jagex's clumsy attempts at PvP updates, and this nonsense, it looks like this game is going far down hill. It's just a total disaster, unless you are a fan of cooking or RC. They are always runnning around desprately trying to balance out the game, when the solution is so easy. It's rather fun to watch them struggle with their own gigantic egos and their unwilllingness to admit their blatant failures. To respond to the inevitable moaning "why don't you solve the problems" I perfer to just watch the show.



Once again, I see people trashing Eatrunearrow. This time, they slammed him even though many people agreed with him. it's just the usual mindless drivel against him. Probably just a bunch of fanboys who cannot stand to see any attack against something that they are so desprate to defend. Maybe they are simply too ignorant to understand what he is trying to communicate.



#3752062 How nerdy is Runescape

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 20 July 2009 - 02:11 PM in General Discussion

Yes. I would never reveal to anyone that I played Runescape. I have special set up with my computer so that people can't see my screen from an angle, and that gives me time to hit a keyboard combination and change the window if they are coming towards me or entering the room.



I always play runescape on my laptop in my back room, and usually only when my girlfriend is out. She is grateful that "you're not conrolling and you let me do whatever I want", but I just use the time to do all of these wierd little nerdy things that I like doing.



Another one that I do is when I read books, I keep the book in a shallow desk drower that I can quickly push in if someone enters the room.



i do not think that this is childish or immature, or any of the other descriptions that are being used to describe it by these selfish elitists who keep saying such things. I think that we all have things that are better kept concealed, and in my opinion, it is selfish and immature to reveal them.



#3626757 wilderness ditch

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 29 May 2009 - 05:16 PM in General Discussion

k thats not really luring, and the ditch doesnt prevent luring. It was there just to inform low level peopel who didn't know about the wild from loosing items. Now when you eneter bounty worlds you get a manual. So why keep the ditch?






Because there are revenants in the wilderness which would likely reduce a new player into a pile of moldering bones. It's still one of the most dangerous areas in runescape for an inexperienced, or unprepared player.




Ankous are dangerous for new players. Lesser demons are dangerous for new players. It's made very clear. There is a warning message. There are warning signs. There are guides on the runescape website. If all of this fails, if a higher level player sees a new player approaching the wilderness, he might warn them. Even if that player in question dies, he has a minute to get his very low value armor that he can probably earn back in 10 minutes, anyway.



At some point, risk is just a part of the game. It's not unfair, it's not blindsiding a new player.



#3626737 wilderness ditch

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 29 May 2009 - 05:01 PM in General Discussion

They never needed a ditch of stupidity in the first place, it was an idiotic idea. The ditch is a failure, it was a disaster for gameplay, and they ought to remove it immediately.



The stupid trade system and the GE does a good job of protecting people who can't be bothered to think about what they do before they rush in and do it. Let's get rid of this Ditch of Stupidity, this monument to every thing that is wrong with the game.



Oh, and I guess the message isn't good enough. No, we need a ditch to help people who are too lazy to read. This is a bunch of crap. The ditch needs to be scrapped.



#3611659 Another boneheaded move by Jagex

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 22 May 2009 - 03:37 PM in Rants

It annoys me that there are only a few worlds, it would be nice if they would just return the wilderness on every world to that situation. This probably wouldn't be possiblew because of credit card fraud concerns.



#3611651 D Claw "Noobs" Ruin the joy of pking?(For the being atked)

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 22 May 2009 - 03:33 PM in Rants

I don't like PJers, but they are and have always been a major part of PKing. Sometimes you can get a few good fights without them. It was a higher possibility in the old wilderness, and you can sometimes fight without PJer interference in a few little areas now.



People who learn to counter and deal with PJing are the people who eventually spend most of their time PKing. The people who don't are the people who you see with 17 skillcapes.



#3611642 ~~~ Jagex's Mass RWT Ban Cover-up ~~~

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 22 May 2009 - 03:29 PM in Rants

They were hysterical about RWT, I'm not suprised that there were random bans and blunders.



#3611640 Ever been robbed by G.E?

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 22 May 2009 - 03:28 PM in Rants

Probably just another glitch from the failed GE system. It was rushed when it was slopped together last year. It combines inherent flaws with massive failures and glitches.



#3611635 May 20th: New Slayer Monster Information.

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 22 May 2009 - 03:23 PM in General Discussion

The new monster does not necessarily have to drop a peice of mage equipment. Spiritual mages are magic based have nothing to do with dragon boots. Dark Beasts use Melee and Magic attacks, but drop a Ranged weapon.



If it is a dragon item, It might be the kite. I do not think that the drop will be anything ground breaking. I'm guessing the monster is a conduit to release some long overdue item, like an alternative strength training weapon to the SS.

Yeah,we need another good strength training weapon over some new mage equipment,right? :roll: :wall:




I didn't say I think we needed one, I just think that falls into the pattern of the type of items that jagex releases.

Dark Beasts use Melee and Magic attacks, but drop a Ranged weapon. Kurasks use Melee attacks only, but drop the Mystic Robe Top. the only two monsters that have close connection to their drops are Abyssal Demons and Cave Horrors.

#3589520 Items Kept on death, and other odds and ends.

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 12 May 2009 - 07:02 PM in Rants

The reason you lose valueble items is that the low alch value items are in higher demand. People die and need them, so there is more of a market for them.



We should not change the system to GE value. When you die, you already have a very good chance fo recovering lost items anyway, unless you have trouble getting to an area in 40 minutes. Death is a joke, there is practically no peantly other than getting a free tele to Lumbridge, Falador, or Camelot.



#3581488 I </3 Price Manipulators

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 08 May 2009 - 04:48 PM in Rants


Blame the GE not the people... What idiot wouldn't take advantage of something when its placed in front of them?


Let's take this logic and change it.



Blame the gun no the people.... What idiot wouldn't take advantage of something when its placed in front of them?




Don't be silly. You are comparing apples to oranges. Cheating a system and shooting someone are two very different things. If you want to make a valid analogy, take the time to think of one.



For example...



U.S. housing market. People took advantage of bad loans and intentionally inflated the market. Who is responsible? The people who took advantage of the system, as well as the regulators who allowed it to happen.



Who would be responsible for a Runescape economy crash? Merchanters for cheating the system, and Jagex for allowing it. It's human nature to take advantage of something. It's the job of those in charge to stop it before damage is done.




People aren't going to let an advantage go just becasue it violates "video game morals". if Jagex does not take emergent gameplay into account when they develop, that is not the fault of their paying customers. If you release a very poorly designed, easily manipulated pile of garbage, you can't just expect players to "be nice" and not abuse all of the glaring problems with the system.



They can fix a problem, but if they just expect a problem to go away because of bizarre video game morals, the problem will just continue forever.



#3581467 Screw Merchanting Clans.

Posted by TheDayRsDied on 08 May 2009 - 04:29 PM in Rants

You can thank the failed GE for these scam clans. The clans are failures, I doubt even 20% of the people in them actually make money.
