I said that i liked the Bandos :cry: and i just don't like the godswords i guess.... :uhh:



And how big? errmmmm like it would take you months to complete it :-k



just like a game i can't mention here i guess

:<img src=:' /> it will make you say something like: WOW




Go play WoW if you want graphics and vast extensive scopes that aren't possible in Java then. -.-




I don't like WoW but i just want big dungeons, lol

WoW smells like old mens balls 8-)



And my problem is... that graphics ARE possible in Java (we have a topic about this i thought)





And if i want graphics i go to play on my ps3 \<img src=/' />

- Barbarian Assault - Maybe good torso

- Halloween Event - :thumbsup:





BAD



- Almost all quests - no use? Quests rock

- Player make-over - Cmon.. we don't have a nose... -.- Was good we look better now

- Postbag from the hedge - no need to say anything =; Just because you cant read doesent mean the rest of us cant

- Players Gallery - no need to say anything too :| There quite interesting to me

- "Graphics" updates What was wrong with them?

- God Wars Dungeon - huge letdown.. soz. Just because Your no good there? all the items and bosses are awesome

- Lootshare i expected more i guess... like ALL worlds? #-o Just hop?

- Pest Control - No need to say anything i guess :cry: Train somewere else, its not hard unless your a pure.

- Free to Play polls - :uhh: - no real use, sorry Only thing i agree with you on

- Duel Arena - I mean... come on....15 minutes 3k... *cries irl...* if your a truly good dueler win a tournament for money, not 1 duel



Post your thoughts and your lists, and comment!!!!





Thanks.





Btw, it's legal to post.. don't worry








Yeh, are you one of those people that rants about every update jagex makes or something? 'oh noes a new quest i cant do, ill go rant because my stats are rubbish :evil: :evil: '

(the bandos is good, that's true)




Well i got to agree with you... BUT.. didn´t you expect something larger?





Double :|




Larger? The GWD is bigger than Varrock, with 200 NPC spawns. With the GWD came about a dozen high-level items.

Ah, this reminds me about the noob on the Runescape forums who was upset with the quest "Cold War" because apparently his grandparents died in the war. :wall:

Good ones:

Achievement diary <3:

Dragonfire Shield + Visage

Mith Dragons + D full

New Varrock + Museum



Bad ones:

Assist system -.-,

Quest help. I mean honestly, who needs this?

Graphical 'updates' Bye-bye werewolves...

Barbarian Assault. Slightly fun but getting a rune pick from high level gamble kind of ruined it for me.
99/99 Cooking. 1500+ total level. 96+ Combat

I never said we have noses, and how often do you really not wear a helm and zoom in far enough to notice anyway?



On your other poionts, i was generalising, just because you find an update bad doesent mean the whole community does, most of what you put in the bad section many players like alot.



Also, can you not post and double post after every reply? let people discuss?

In no real order



Good:



Making some items untradeable - like the leaf bladed spear and stopping a load of scams.

Experience remaining - handy, removed having to look up what I needed on a calculator

Neitiznot Helm - an excellent piece of armour

Bandos armour - nuff said

Dragon boots - Great

Sara sword - Interesting weapon once I can get my hands on it

Dragonfire Shield - it came out of nowhere and it was awesome

Barrelchest Anchor - Fun and strong

Good plot developments in Quests - it's one of the most important things for me

Barbarian Assualt - Zerker gear is always good.

Ava Accumulator - handy for picking up arrows for you

Lumberjack Outfit - it looks cool

Updated Trawler - Finally it's worthwhile

World Switcher - Simple but loveable

Easter and Egg Bowling :)

The uncensoring of g'day! - Yay!

Achievement Diary's - A decent, new challenge

Dream Mentor - A quest that started making the Quest cape more respectable

The Dark Bow - Ranger's finally have their K.O weapon

Mith Dragons - A tough little customer

Dragon Full Helm - Always nice to come closer to finishing up the dragon collection

Themed Worlds - Finally mini-games get attention!

Shop update - personally I love infinite stock of runes and various other stuff.

Jade vine - A new way of getting farming experience. A godsend for me.

ZMI altar - A faster method of getting runecrafting exp is good for me



Bad:



Wilderness Ditch - It was meant to stop luring? No.

People whining over every update - every single update, most of the times, completely unnecessary

The Tower of life - boring much?

Jewellery update - just wasn't as good as it could of been

Hasta's - woo, how lame!

Impetuous Impulses - Caused hassle for getting my Hunter level up because of tons of people aiming for level 83. And in the end, the loot isn't all that great. And my own complaint, I've never even seen a Dragon Impling <.<

Duel Arena Update - I don't bother but I do understand it's struck a nerve in a few people.

Pest Control update - personally I hate how Jagex have messed it up for Rangers and Magers

Slayer Monsters - A vast majority of the ones from this year are just a hindrance for assignments and just not worthwhile in the slightest.

Assit system - Good for stopping scamming, but it just doesnt seem quite right to me.

The agility icon - lol

Don't bash the guy for expressing his opinions, in his opinion he didn't like some of the updates, if you disagree say something along the lines of 'I thought so and so update was good actually, heres why...' Theres no call to tell him to go play another game or call him a moaner.

Almost all updates this year have had positive effects for me;



GOOD



Clan Chat

Very useful, also makes your 'scaping experience more fun if your in the right chats, while your doing something boring and repetetive.



New Prayers

Good for the majority of players, improved max hits and accuracy.



Quests

Can't think of many but umm.. Dream Mentor was good. Lunar spellbook needed expanding imo.



Assist System

Very useful for people who need raw materials transformed, and ofcourse the other person gets the EXP. They made this update very wisely so that it wasn't over or underused i think.



Barbarian Assault

No other mini-game like it, very creative, fun for some, some just want the achievement at the end of it. Great looking body which saves you 50k if you die in the wilderness. \<img src=/' />



God Wars Dungeon

Ain't been down there yet because i wasn't around when this update came, but the Godswords are a positive update aslong as they stay at a high price, if they get quite low PvP combat will be overpowered by Melee.



Halloween Event

Compared to some of the previous Holiday items it was a good looking one, not very creative.. but then we chose it! :D The emote is nice though, overall nice update :)



PC??

I thought this was late 2006? :o Anyways... overall i think it's positive, ofcourse like everyone i liked the easy training. But there is more to explore in RuneScape, fighting different monsters and it's deffinately improved the popularity of Slayer again, which prevents bad prices on new Slayer items. (Good imo)



Duel Tournaments & Staking Changes



Duel Tournaments - Great fun, although it costs a bit, if you win you get a lot more back from it. Encourages using some of your best gear for good fun and rankings. Though it's not very good for lower players, but there has been a lot of lower-aimed updates recently, we deserved one. <3:



Staking Changes - I can see it from both sides, doesn't affect me much, and i personally see it coming out in the end as a positive change. I think staking isn't a good way to play the game, it becomes the only thrill for some 'scapers and they end up being addicted to staking.



I can see it also possibly encouraging real life gambling, but I won't go into that.

I see the staking change being a positive change after people have forgotten about it and started to live with the fact it's gone.









So there's my views on 2007. Not a bad year for updates at all IMO. :)



Looking forward to the year ahead, the Summoning skill and "The biggest update since RS2" - If summoning isn't that.. :<img src=:' />

Yay. Staking is dead.



Yay. PC is dead.



Yay, the game is finally comming back towards skills. Maybe in a week I can add....



Yay. Merchanting is dead.

I shall take my flock underneath my own wing, and kick them right the [bleep] out of the tree. If they were meant to fly, they won't break their necks on the concrete.

So, what is 1.111... equal to?

10/9.

Please don't continue.

Duel arena is the worst update in this game's history. Accomplishes nothing and destroys a lot. Beats pure essence by a longshot.

Well theres alot of middle ground i will try an sort through most of that.



Good

Barbarian Assault - Love the Torso, Hat and Gloves.

Dream Mentor w/ new Spells - Great addition.

PC Update - Stops fast 126s with 30 Slayer.

Clan Chat - Should of been eairler oh well.

Diares - Something to do and people can find things they didn't know were there.

Slight Graphics updates - Every Bit helps

Tournaments - Only good bit about that update.



Bad

I don't hate any update that 'doesn't bring anything new' because every bit helps imo.

But yes the Duel Arena - Duh
