Random events are alright, but getting about fifteen a day can get pretty annoying. The good thing about random events are that they might reward you with some good items like gems and runes. Prison Pete, Genie, Quiz Master, Pinball and Mr. Mordaut are some good general events that give XP, runes and gems. My most disliked events are Sandwich lady, Drunken Dwarf and Strange Boxes which usally give me useless items like food and 100gp. I think random events are not getting worse, Jagex just needs to change the rewards to something of higher value.
