For those thinking this may just be some money-making racket:

That may be so, but they are still trying to break even. I think if they really want to make it a success they should accept they will make a loss.

Indeed, I agree. I wonder how many people they really expect to be attending if they can figure out they'll make no loss...

55€ for flights and 86€ for the ticket. 141€ for a little RuneScape party. Sounds quite expensive.

After reading today's update, I kinda want to go. I am pleased that there will be Runescape themed food and drinks, it would make the event more memorable.

 

Pick up lines anyone? I thought of some last night. :P

Many of the activities appear to be geared towards kids, yet the age limits and high cost mean that they won't be much in attendance.

 

So the target audience for this thing appears to be... really immature adults who like wasting money? I guess I should go then. :)

Er, I thought this was going to be an adult orientated thing, given the alcahol and age limits? I'm definitely not going now.

Email about the tickets came today. They are done via ticketmaster not direct from Jagex which means it costs another £5 almost per ticket. Just gets worse.

So 80£ per ticket + plane back and forth for 2.

 

That ends up as a total of £477 for one weekend. Thats... alot. :unsure:

 

 

1400USD plane ticket and hotel stay + 80BP/120USD ticket + food = alot more.

 

I should get a working visa and stay there all summer then come home after RuneFest.

I didnt add in the hotell cost or price for food, but yeah a flight from the US would cost much more then mine would.

Does anyone know of a close airport to the event's location? Right now I am set to arrive at Gatwick on the 27th at 10 am. There were like 5 airports to choose from in London and that one sounded interesting, but if there is a closer airport, I would prefer that.

 

Depends where you're flying from really. Gatwick is the main airport for the south of the UK, it has a tube line that goes straight from the airport into the centre of London too.

 

Actually Heathrow is a lot bigger than Gatwick (think it's got 3 more terminals).

 

I would really love to go but £75 is simply too much (Even though I wouldn't be paying accomodation, food or travel) unless I get 6months + membership and a Stellar Dawn beta key I won't be going =(

 

(quick little story I got membership in Feb last year after Jagex said that members would get priority for the Stelar Dawn (then known as mechscape) beta. 13 months later and I'm still waiting...)

I'd love to go.

 

But I live in the U.S. it would cost me at least $1500 to get there and back with flight, hotel, and food, and ticket price.

 

Sucks for Americans, there will not be any in attendance.

 

I love this game, but thats way to rich for my blood.

Haha yeah, i actually meant Heathrow in my post, not sure how i got the two confused since i've lived on the piccadilly line for the past 5 years which goes right to Heathrow. #-o

I wouldn't fly on heathrow: prices of planes landing there are probably 2-3 times as big as when flying on smaller airfield.


First they came to fishing

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

 

Then they came to the yews

and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

 

Then they came for the ores

and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

 

Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.

I would like to go, but I'm not willing to fly to the UK, unfortunately. It's really too bad; if I lived there, I would definitely attend. :(

I will be buying 2, maybe 3 tickets on Friday.

One for myself, one for my partner (knows nothing about RS) and maybe one for my forums as a give-away prize.

£150 is nothing, only 2 days at work or so.

 

AMG YOU'RE SO RICH LEMME KISS YOUR FEET. <_<

 

 

 

I'd rather go to a music festival with my money. Hello Bestival!

it's all gonna be skinny nerds or fat nerds looking for hot chicks, and fat chicks looking for hot guys. No offence to anyone, but its much like the eurotrip nude beach scene, if you catch my drift. Besides, Runescape is like a crack addiction, sure its really fun, but do you ever want to talk about it?

Actually comes to a total price of £82.25 :mellow: You have to select a delivery method, only method available is being emailed the tickets and you print them out, and that costs an extra £2.50, on top of the £4.75 ticketmaster fees.

 

Besides, i won't be ordering until i know where it is. "Secret London Venue" isn't clear enough for me atm, I like to know exactly what i'm doing, where i'm going, how much it's going to cost me etc. etc.
