With the bug that cost one poor guy 350m, Jagex apologized and then had the gall to say "I gave you an apology, and that doesn't happen very often."
Jagex didn't apologize and Jagex never said that. Mat K did. He was admitting he was wrong and how rare it is for him to do just that, not for Jagex as a company. Surely enough, everybody goes and takes his words out of context.
This is exactly why companies forbid employees from apologising. It is tantamount to admitting fault and the employees actions are interpreted as the actions & thoughts of the company as a whole and not as an individual person.
I agree with everything you said. However, Jagex is too far into the 'abolish RWT' attitude that they won't listen to any suggestions that could lead to RWTing no matter how good they are. One day they'll have to decide whether stopping RWT or pleasing their players is the bigger issue and when that day comes I hope they choose the later.
Seeing such an intelligent person say that hurt me a little. I understand that a lot of people here are naive enough to truly believe the choice is that simple, but please, not you.
It is around 10% of people who pvp, right?
Over 800,000 people regularly PvP? Not including trickers and skillers? I doubt that. Not an attack on you libs, just pointing out numbers. My theory behind all the threads is because they are whingers.
Whoever said 6% of the total population quit in the big RWT updates, I think you are underestimating. It was stated over 100k people cancelled their subscriptions in the fortnight after the update. That represented roughly 10% of the members at the time. Plus how many freebies?
It's Jagex. Making complicated rules for no other reason than to annoy and infuriate people? Well that's simply a British pastime. Try getting insurance on a car in England. Then you'll understand.
I'll see your English insurance and raise you Melbourne! The hoon laws bumped my premium up by $3k.
