Pest Control is now completely nerfed for high levels. 35% of the exp and 1:45 minimum per game? That's the new definition of NERFED.

Wow, unlike what they did with fletching, potion making is still just as fast, if not faster, to train now with Make All :shock:

To get rid of the warning messages you have to go through and accept it FIVE times. On the sixth time you can check a box which makes it disapear.

I suggest reading the whole article, people on the lvl 100+ boat get 4 PC points. You're right about the time difference since most games were under 45-60 seconds and it now almost tripled in time but only gained 40% in xp.

That's a lot more points per game! We obviously can't give as much experience per point if points are that easy to get, so the amount of experience you get per point is now 35% of what it used to be. You may be wondering what will happen to the Pest Control points you have collected already - we thought of that, and you will still get to cash in your old points at the old rate. (Phew!)

I seriously felt the hate going through me when I read about all the new "make X" options. And I was thinking Jagex was making the updates better, I'd rather have truck loads of useless updates then this. What's next "Afk X"?

Since mine will get locked, might as well post here.



People should read the articles. The high level boat gives 4 pc pts per game, the medium 3 pc pts and obviously, the low boat gives 2 pc pts per game.



I don't mind the changes to equipment. A full Mage set = 30% more Magic Attack. =P~ Even the Range one is good also. However, you need a whole set, which takes a while. For me, that's about 300 games in the medium boat for a whole set if I am right.



I'm glad the xp was nerfed, I feel like laughing in every pure and PC products face and see the looks on their arrogant faces as they read this and realise they have to train properly like we all do. :twisted:

I think that this is a great update. Stops all the PC products, pures etc. from getting super fast xp. Having said that though, although the games will last longer, there are 4 times the number of points going now per game, so the clans should still be ok.



I never agreed with people getting free mage and range xp by simply levelling melee stats, and I am glad that they have changed it now. About a year too late, but a good update nonetheless. Going to check out the rants forum now, should be a good laugh :)



I might actually be prepared to play PC now. Althought I think that I will go for the armour rather than points as my armour case is only missing a few sets.

ok taking into consideration the above you would get 140% of the previous xp reward (not mage or range tho) considering good worlds could do <50sec games. it now takes twice as long due to the new setup. Your still only going to get 70% of the previous reward in the amount of time.



based on that it would be a 60% loss???

Ahem all the high lvls moaned about low lvls ruining PC and wanted this so no one can complain now about the change since that what they wanted. Like I always said if you do it to PC you won't find it as inviting as you think without the lower lvls to take up the amounts in the boat.

I posted a topic in RSOF. It was called Jagex Are The Saviour's Of the world, or Jagex Are The Worlds Saviour's...1k characters. ^^

--------------------------------------------------------------------



Finally, the true value of what jagex tried to implement with pc can be observed and valued highly. Although Jagex should really take out that lesser exp for rangers and magers.

Hmm... they improved and ruined pc.... let's do some math?



You get 35% xp per point, you get 4 points per game (100+)

this will give you 140% xp that's 40%more than normal pc, you would think:



but... :

jagex says this:

One portal will become unshielded 15 seconds after the game starts, then another every 30 seconds, until after 1 minute and 45 seconds every portal is unshielded.



so.. that will take you 1:45 sec to complete a game, it used to be 30 seconds?



1:45/30 sec -> 3,5 times slower than it used to be, so you could get 300% xp in the time that you get 140% xp now.....



Weird?

You might have noticed that 'make-x' for smithing is missing - do not fear! It is still being worked on and will be brought to you soon.


I do fear, Jagex, I do.

it seems you know some difficult maths...

so, what is the conclusion? better or worsen now?



if compare to (previous) 1 min games, is it still worsen?
