Weekly Poll: Are you enjoying the changes made to randoms?

Recommended Posts

While I do like the new randoms event rewards, it seems that now that they are finally worth getting I don't hardly get randoms anymore! #-o

They're ok but I think they that you can get any random at anytime is just dumb. If they would have just fixed randoms in the chaos tunnels I would have been satisfied.

I've gotten...

 

 

 

Two randoms since the update.

 

 

 

Evil Bob (which I haven't gotten in MONTHS) while doing As A First Resort, and Niles (Naise office, dood!) as I was leaving Morytania after a ghoul assignment.

 

 

 

It feels like less, tbh...

 

 

 

Once I get onto a computer that doesn't suck (toniiiiiight, yey, my mum's letting me borrow her compy, w00t), I'm going to go pure essence mining and count the number of randoms I get. Whenever I ess mine I average about one abyss every hour and a half.


Balance may be power, but chaos is still pretty damn fun.

Yeah, it's nice, I did miss an onyx bolt tip because of one :thumbdown:, but got 3 grimy snap drags as a reward.

 

 

 

 

 

I've only gotten once random since the update, so it is nice. Then again, I've probably only played a few hours total since the update.

I'm loving the update, it's so nice to be able to fish and look away to post or send a message and not have to worry about an evil chicken or a sea troll.

After 2 years of no gravedigger random and 3 years of playing without zombie dance, I got one while randomly walking today. So yes, I'm very happy with it.

good ridence to those [developmentally delayed]ed random events. The new style ones are much improved and no matter where they spring up there not really gonna get you killed, aand with a lamp each time its perfect.

 

 

 

Although it is funny now that they give lamps each time, everyone wants them to be more common :P

3 words.

 

No. More. Gems!

 

This makes the update for me, definitely. I hated cutting those things >.<

 

I always hated the interruptions too. If I'm going to go for something, I want to do just that, not some random thing Jagex wants me to do.

 

 

 

Though, maybe a way to turn randoms on higher for those who do want them may be nice.

I just find it odd that the Old man now stalks you around the maze. :-#

It's so funny that everyone wants more randoms now the rewards are decent. I reckon it's really good now, though.

Before, when I was smelting, I would get approximately four different randoms in the span of an hour. Now, I get about 1 random in the span of four game sessions. This is probably the best tweak made to the game; even the random that I got was relatively short (Molly), and I got an XP lamp for my trouble! :D

If the rewards had stayed the same, I would be loving the updates. However, now that you can get an XP lamp from almost every random, I wish we had more of them again :P

Hmm, well, in the 4 hours I've played in the past 3 days (first 4 hours in about 5 months, actually) I haven't gotten a random. I now miss them, actually. Which is extremely wierd because almost everyone was screaming at Jagex to lower the rate for the past two years. ^_^'
