  1. And this is not to single out the person who wrote this article. It was not only her there were a few posters who rabidly defended every single decision Jagex made on these fan forums. It just floors me to see the person who wrote this article bash Jagex though. It's like someone who has a massive crush on a guy, and actually ends up dating them for the last two years of high school and they fall in love. But when the relationship ends in the natural course of things and they break up to go to college in different states she decides to hate the guy and bad-mouth him and to claim "oh I never even really liked him, what a jerk." For me her rabid support of Jagex and her rabid criticisms of Jagex come from the same place, it's not someone who thinks things through and sees both sides of the story. You don't have to absolutely love something or absolutely hate something life just is not like that. Her opinions are just too immature.
  2. Finally someone who remembers how overbearing and obnoxious the "person in question" used to be in championing jagex. I have no problems with new players joining the community what I do have problems with are new players who blather on and on about how great every single update is even when they can't even access most of the content in the game. In my eyes this was the "person in question". It does bother me now that they are hyper-critical of Jagex and seem to act like they are "the very first person ever to notice that Runescape has flaws." I also think it's extremely ungrateful to leave on a negative tone. The fact is for some moments in time we did play Runescape and we did enjoy it. I do think that new players especially those who are younger still can experience some of that.
  3. How times change. What happened to this fan site? I think it's ironic that someone who blindly championed Jagex in the past in now whinging about how Jagex is going downhill and how they are quitting. This sets an ugly tone for the people currently playing. We've all been through this, Runescape now is not the game I started playing years ago, in fact it has not been since the trade restrictions. In fact this third wave or fourth wave of people quitting in disgust over the game seems so spoiled. They were the ones who loudly championed ALL of Jagex's decisions especially when they were new to the game and now they are the ones loudly complaining about every Jagex decision. Spoiled hypocrites. Runescape is fun to play with a group of real life friends. Who cares about the bots? The magic and the core of the game is still there if you can look past the many flaws.
  4. It's because there are few legit players left. There is little point in levelling up no one really cares anymore. Also when your stat's are good people just accuse you of botting.
  5. And over the 536 tasks I've done, that would be an extra 16m cash that I'd have. ^ and the time spent clicking to collect these coins? not worth it at least the row could have picked up piles of coin drops that would have been a good reason to wear it as it is i'm going back to my ring with the str bonus. i can passively earn more than 16 mill by doing the kingdom that takes less time than doing 536 tasks It's not hard to pick up drops on the way to the next monster you will be fighting, nor is it hard to figure out that you can walk about 2 spaces inbetween each time your whip/rapier hits. So really, the time spent picking up the coins is nothing. You're there to kill the monsters for slayer, if you can't loot efficiently, that's your problem. I also use a zerker ring/fero ring while slaying, like I said, it is really minimal work to click on a ring as the monster red bars, then click on your main ring again after the loot appears. I never claimed that the extra 30k profit per task was faster money than anything else, all I said was that it wasn't an insult. ITT: Inefficient person complaining that a ring doesn't pick up objects for him. Who bothers paying that much attention to the game? I afk slay as much as I can, I can't be bothered to juggle rings and then pick up every measly coin drop. A good update will be to meld the row to the existing stat boosting rings in the game, that this WAS NOT done is a huge oversight. You do realize that if the ring were to pick up coins it would make it more efficient? We do have objects to pick up or automatically use bones, herbs or gems, why not coins. We also need an object to pick up charms, the less clicking the better with make-x why make combatters suffer.

  7. Agreed 1st row drop was uncut dragonstone, after that only like 400gp cash piles, various uncut gems from sapphire-diamond and a nature tally The cash piles are an insult. The ROW should at least just pick up cash drops for you as it generates so many. I would take food over cash drops as well and ROW seems to lower food drops so it's less useful.
  8. Has the ring of wealth worked for you? It seemed to make a difference the first day, I'm not talking about the glitch but just the first day after that. Now it just appears to be the same junk as before coins, a few gems, a few alchables. No outstanding good drops and I have never received some of the amazing resource drops yet. Am i just unlucky yet again?!
  9. how fast will this be nerfed? i can see skillers complaining as resource prices fall even further than with the existing bots enjoy these drops while they last. to bad these new drops weren't linked to slayer tasks only
  10. I think the game won't suck. It's good exposure for Jagex to do something different. It may even be easier to develop a game that already has a back story and tonnes of built in things to do. Hope it won't turn into a Gundam type thing though.
  11. Noticed 200k+ players are on-line. I haven't seen this many players in years.
  12. Are you the Nuke Marine that used to post long detailed posts on RSOF? I think you are describing more of an auction aspect to the GE. I agree with the idea of setting a price range that your item can sell for that makes the most sense. I predict that useless junk will settle down at the 1gp or so mark. Merching clans will be devestated, old style RS merch takes much more thought then manipulating prices through an artificial system. I disagree that there should not be limits on GE bids. I think realistic limits are still needed maybe 100k of something vs the 100 allowed currently. There is so much pure cash held by many accounts in this game, that having unlimited GE trade limits won't be practical. If a gravestone is destroyed before someone returns outside of wildy then it should be lootable. Also the wildy needs to be no rules besides the old one where you can't teleport out after level 20 wild. No honour pker's aren't worth killing anyhow they rarely carry that many valuables. I wonder if old pking clans will be resurrected.
  13. Interesting times. Jagex must be desperate for more players. Will be nice to see the duel arena actually have people duelling. Old wildy & free trade is win. Still not enough to make me return to RS ^ It sucks, all the work and resources that were put into removing trade to the extent that even party rooms were limited to a few worlds. Not to mention how much work went into wildy substitutes. No wonder the actual in-game content updates seemed slim compared to pre-trade restrictions.
  14. They're not hard to figure out if you have common sense. I finished the event.. Still a useless waste of time. You know you could just .. NOT do it ? I do all the events. Well that's your problem. If you don't like events, don't do them. *shrugs* events are just a waste of an update they could spend time working on USEFUL and PERMANENT additions instead of some stupid crap you do for 5 minutes to get a emote If they want the event to be "fun" they should give you the option of skipping the tasks and just give away the emote and the souvenir. This is how rewards started out they were more drops and didn't force you to do mini-quests. People like getting holiday items to show off how long they have played, you can't just skip a year.
  15. I don't want or expect anything. I get my hopes up, they get dashed. :wall: I will take next year off and then when I return in 2012 if the world hasn't ended at least there will be a year's worth of updates I can pick and choose from. I will never play another Jagex game again, good luck Stellar Dawn.
  16. ^ I will NEVER ever play another Jagex created game. They are an inconsistent company. I created a similar thread to this a few weeks ago :blink: Look it up if you are interested. I think LOTRO is a proper MMORPG that offers a lot, but so far it hasn't lured RS players as of yet. But who can resist Frodo & the rest of the fellowship, the storyline is epic :grin: Tip.it even has a old fansite for LOTRO that hasn't been updated since forever, maybe they should restart updating it : http://lotro.tip.it/
  17. Oh young one, you weren't around when the RSOF forums USED to have great guides. A few were stickied, most were bumped or eaten by the page 50+ monster. The frustrating part was that the people making amazing guides were rarely rewarded for the time and effort they put in, Jagex could have handled it better, now they seem to reward people randomly for breathing with a forum modship. I remember Gen (or Gem or something similar) who wrote an amazing slayer guide that was used by almost all the top slayers at one point.
  18. Yes, without the fan sites I never would have bothered levelling skills. I wouldn't have bothered doing quests either as it would be too annoying to keep gathering things as you go through the quest without a reliable guide. The combat system is simple and afkable but for skills it's best to know experience rates so you can see how long a 99 will take, and costs for various levelling methods etc. It's shameful how there are so many mistakes and a real lack of information on the RS official site. Their game manual is not user friendly at all. So is Jagex compensating you guys at all? The people running the fan sites? You deserve a percentage in royalties at this point :thumbsup: My expectation is without these fan sites the game would have had fewer players but a better community as most people would have been playing because they like challenges with a smaller community you would get to know people. There would be less botting as well because people would not care about levels or GEEPEE.
  19. Well, most games are aimed towards the 12-16 year old players, and I think even Runescape is too. And I can even see some adults falling for it. A lot of games have adult players in mind, runescape being the exception is aimed for 12 year olds, which a lot of us started when we were 12-13 and stuck around til were adult players Runescape is not aimed for 12-year-olds. In real life I knew of some kids as young as 8 years old playing. Usually they would see their older siblings playing and would join as well. At that age they aren't ashamed of RS and tend to recruit their friends to play as well. It shocked me at first when I saw this little kid controlling a char that was fighting in t'zahar especially because he had decent gear. I did find it funny that their dad called the game "run" "escape". I do think RS does crossover to a few different age groups though because if you just want to chat there is that feature or if you just want to skill or just fight.
  20. ^ Agreed. Also if botting was stopped in its tracks the number of players would plummet. Currently people bot on multiple accounts at the same time as they play their main or do other stuff on the Internet. There is now such a culture of botting its almost like if you can't beat them join them. RS almost needs to allow legit botting officially to make it fair for normal players like letting your char woodcut while you are not even logged on or something. That way it takes away the grinding aspect of the game too.
  21. Inconsistent decision. It was a nice gesture to allow high exp f2p access to forums as a reward. Now letting any f2p almost use the forums is a joke. When they implemented this they should have added a section that f2p solely can post on and restricted them from other parts of the forums. In what century willl those RS forums be overhauled to begin with, it's not user friendly and barely lets the user's personality come through.
  22. I've been noticing that some other MMORPG's are becoming free for basic gameplay. This basic gameplay still offers a tonne of content. They also sell items or gold so may be generating revenue from that and are offering premium membership. Still these free mmorgp's are impressive and now include Everquest the one that started it all and LOTRO. Will this massively impact RS? Especially if WOW were to become F2P as that's the game most players seem to compare to RS.
  23. The sounds are funny, but even more because jagex staffers did not seem to catch it, or those who did notice the interesting sounds said nothing. It could also be when the sounds are played together, like when a guy attacks a girl it's just more obvious that the sounds are way too suggestive. Jagex still gets my $5 a month for their amusing, unnecessary updates that break far more content than it fixes.
  24. For one it should not sound like ooooooohhhhhh like oh I like that please continue. Like I said the current sounds seem far too pleasurable. Why would girls moan and grunt like porn stars while attacking or being attacked! :!: And it shouldn't sound so soft like the female is a wimp and weak and not fierce or intimidating. Fighting sounds should sound aggressive and like hey back off I want to attack you and win, so the sound should be more aggressive and violent and not so soft and undangerous. Females can make attacking sounds pity jagex didn't try to find some that could do so. I don't think the guy sounds are bad they sound tough like barbarians and they are fairly short sounds that don't sound like moans.
  25. Did you write this after hearing girl characters sounds? No way would a girl make those sounds while fighting or even doing martial arts. Just go to pvp and attack a girl, then come back to me and tell me those sounds are normal fighting sounds. :shame: They are normal for other situations but not fighting.
