Great read that gives a lot of good points. Especially that thing about a way not being efficient not as fast. (Which is why I'm the only person I ever see with a chompy hat).

Moral of the story, can't please everyone, can only try to please a majority of the players.

 

 

 

Hopfully with the new updates, I'm in that majority :)

Good article, but the "Did you know" wasn't all that interesting.

great article. it's been a while since they've been this good. I miss the articles from the editor every week. :(

 

 

 

Anyways, i like how this one will finally explain to a lot of people what i thought of the RWT updates: Jagex is just doing it for the good of Runescape. As a shark fisher, I knew what the bots and RWT's were doing to RS, as the price of sharks fell ALOT when the mass invasion of bots occurred. So, I'm glad that now it's going to be really hard/impossible to make real money this way off of Runescape.

 

 

 

Oh yeah, and once again, Great Article.

People with existing 99s need to lighten up. The game shouldn't cater to the specific people who think making millions of bows is fun.

 

 

 

Because you know what? It isn't. At all.

I liked that article, pretty much everything he said was true. So I said, good job to you =]


EDIT - Signature far exceeds our sig limits but since it's so colourful you can keep it.

Good read...I realized while reading it something..

 

 

 

people got upset about the X-ALL option because they spent all that time clicking away to get to 99....how bout the poeple who may have gotten 99 in mining when there was still fatigue (and you needed a sleeping bag)..now that took perseverence...

 

 

 

But hey...I've never really disliked any of the updates so far...maybe cause I've never been a pker or a merchanter.....I'm personally happy that Runescape put in harsh measures to get rid of the RWTraders and bots. I remember beign quite upset about the shark price falling right when I had finally leveled high enough to catch them. I remember thinking...dang..i just wasted how long for this!?

 

 

 

Anyways, I thought the Did ya know thing was interesting too....lol

A good, well-thoughtout article. but you still didn't tell us what a good update is!

 

 

 

I believe a good update is one that balances things. Skills need to be compared to others. Not other methods of training that skill. I mean, if a new update came out that had herblore xp rewards, and was a great free method of training herblore, I'd consider it a good update!


That's what it takes to be a hero, a little gem

of innocence inside of you that makes you want

to believe that there still exists a right and wrong,

that decency will somehow triumph in the end.

i really loved the 'Kill RWT' update!!!!

 

i trained weeks to get my woodcutting up to 60 so i could cut yews and then sell them for good money, then to get the disappointment of my life when i went to the yews and saw an entire army of bots running around the trees.

 

 

 

then, when i finally got a full inventory of yews, found out that yews weren't that good moneymakers after all

 

 

 

SCREW ALL BOTS AND AUTO-ERS!!!!!!!!!!!


still have to think up a nice signature

We know it's impossible for a game to cater to everyone's tastes at once, and we've seen that Jagex isn't afraid to get flamed in their goal of protecting RuneScape's long-term survival.

 

 

 

In my opinion the best part of the article, and another great read.

Great article to start off the set for 2008, but the Did You Know's could use some work still. This one was better than last week, but I liked them better when they accually could be useful in the game, like in "All In A Day's Work" (Dec 1, 2006, which happens to be the first DYK) "Five Year Runescape Aniversary" (Which made me some money :) ), and most of the other ones from back then.

 

 

 

Oh and the main thing I thought was bad about the Wildy update was the Reverants. They are extremely overpowered. The Level 126 Warrior hits almost as hard as the Kalphite Queen, is poisonous, and can teleblock. The Level 30 Goblin Reverent can hit 15's. So basically, the wildy is impossible to stay in now, especially in the Agility Course, On the balance beam to get in, I lost all my health (72 hp) from the 126, because you can't even protect from him, cause he uses all forms of combat. I miss pkers, they only used one form of combat and gave up after a while :(

I suppose that whether or not an update is truly good or bad is relative to the person judging it. Good read overall.

Good article. Finally.

 

Indeed. Something which made me stay off my life duties for a good 20 mins.

 

 

 

To be honest, on that 'clicking' front, I never saw the justification in the argument anyway. How is adding such a feature as Cook X making the game easier? For something to be made easier, it must have some level of complexity and difficulty beforehand. Clicking until you contract CTS is hardly my idea of 'difficult' as opposed to dangerous.

 

 

 

Simple put, that update was more about making their product safe, and while that particular one was before my time, I've praised Jagex for similar updates to Smithing and Fletching.

 

 

 

A brilliant article that explores the true political complexity of a professional group. You'll never please everyone; just keep an eye on how big that minority that disagrees with you is, and listen to them. That's the key.

 

 

 

:-s Maybe I should submit an artical.

 

Please do. :thumbsup:
