What update hurt you the most?

Recommended Posts

I've seen many topics bout people who have been mad at updates, most notably the Pking upheaval, although most of these riots, I couldn't even be bothered with. So I was wondering, what update has most upset you?

Personally, the update that most upset me was the change in the attack patterns of Monks. Why? Because they were the easiest, laziest way to train a def pure. And mine had gotten up to 55 def at monks. Without ever leaving. I've since given up on this awesome pure, because I could just train def the same way on my main.

What hurt me the most was the price limits. I used to merchant(not price manipulation) god amours a lot :sad:

Updates never really bothered me because I understood changes were needed and not everything can be accomplished nicely.

 

But the December 10 (2007) updates with the removal of PK and intro of the GE... RuneScape wasn't the same game anymore. :-(

None.

 

All of them have improved my experience.

 

Even the inflation from the pvp drops allowed me to make my way into glorious cashmaking.

Yup, same here. I didn't think there could be an update worse than Dec 10th 2007 but they proved me wrong there.

99 Attack, Defence, Strength and Hitpoints Achieved January 2005. When it still meant something.

Herblore update. It killed my chances of getting 70 herblore for like a year. I made a nice profit from my banked avantoes though.

PVP statues, 76king, etc. All of the horrible updates meant to cater to lazy PKers that effectively destroyed the economy.

The update that hurt me the most is Nomads Requiem. I like skilling and combat, but I am not very experienced with rehersed fights. I ended up losing a couple million gp due to having to learn how to handle him and keeping up my supplies for doing multiple runs. I like the fact Jagex is taking it a step further like other MMO's with rehersed boss fights (tztok-jad, corporeal beast and now nomad), but damn I think they need to allow more movement time in between the bosses 'special attacks' or changes in their 'style' of attack for players or else they are going to find the simplest route to killing it which is most often tanking the enemy with protection prayers and as much healing as possible.

 

Their best rehersal fight in my opinion was the corporeal beast with its attacks and the dark core. Well, of course people just cannon the dark cores, but it was the thought that counted. For example imagine 5 man teams killing it: 1 man dedicated to hunting the core, 1 man to tank the fight (getsthe bosses initial attention, and during down-time gets food sacrifices, extra pots, etc.) and 3 attackers (geared to deal the fastest and most damage), I've seen similar tactics with the god wars dugneon bosses, bandos in most particular, but I believe thats done more for efficiency and kills than survival.

When they changed Trouble brewing clothes prices to 1/10th of what they used to be after I had got all sets and Phasmatys flag with old price. Hurt me most because it made my playing devalued. I know that updates tend to devalue work done in past by making things easier and faster but.. in this case I have no idea why they made that change. It's not like therer were any reason behind it.

The trade limits did not actually hurt me, they helped me gain items quicker, easier, and cheaper, but I do not like them. I prefer the game prior to those updates.
