24-Apr-2010 - Jagex Presents... RuneFest 2010

Recommended Posts

It'd be more for the train.

 

I tried booking a train somewhere once (Looked in December, was going away in Feburary), It was around £110 at the student rate.

 

Accomodation costs..Well..Depending on the area of London and the place, that'd set you back a fair bit. Since they say central, I can assume it'd be pretty pricey.

 

Am I the only one who thinks it's pretty stupid of them to say "Please note that alcohol will be available at this event, for which proof of age will be required. Because of this, the event will only be suitable for our adult fans." I don't see why having alcohol there only makes it suitable for adult fans. Perhaps they should just say "We're putting an age limit for player safety, those under this age must have a parent/guardian/someone over 18 present."

 

Personally, I won't be attending, not my sort of thing really (Well, I guess it's because it's RuneScape) and I've got a plan for the week before that. Plus it doesn't seem as fun as some other things.

I'd rather have Jagex 'lie' about the age limit due to alcohol than open it too younger children with supervision. Parents won't want to take their children to a place with alcohol, so we can assume that there won't be hundreds of 12 year olds hitting you with a stick and spinning around like a moron.

 

With older people there, Jagex can start to lose their reputation as a game for children, which was one of their goals.(stated in the Tip.It questionaire thing that was sent to them.(i think :geek:))

 

 

Question 10

 

My final question regarding content in the future is - how far is Jagex going to go in reaching for the older teen and adult "WoW" market? A few years ago Jagex stated publicly that most of their customers were males under 15. Most parents are happy to send money to Jagex knowing that they cared about their child's safety (no, I don't mean "waahh I lost my party hat", I mean sharing phone numbers and school names etc.) Will Jagex continue that commitment?

 

 

 

First and foremost is our commitment to the safety of our players, whatever age they may be. We want Runescape to be a safe and enjoyable place for all. That being said, there is a desire to shift to a slightly more mature setting. We’re not talking about obscenity and nudity, but we don’t want to patronise our players so much. The changes won’t happen overnight, but what we may see are quests with more serious plot and player decisions, puzzles that require more thought, and a reduction in player pampering.

I agree with whoever said there wouldn't be much to do there.

Jagex is quieter then Johnny Tightlips about their future updates, I REALLY doubt they would give some unique ingame item or something to people who came, and tbh I'm praying since there's going to be adults there won't be any RSOFers freaking out "PAY 2 PKK!1!"

Am I the only American who is sitting here reading this and thinking: "Wow...people take trains?"

 

Anyway, is the fan base really large enough to hold this kind of thing? I've got a feeling its gonna end up being Jagex + 100 fat old nerdy guys sitting around in a room that is way too big for this event. Anyone else get that picture in their head?

I can see it now.

 

Jagex: "We'll take some questions from the audience."

Random 14 yr-old: "Why'd you take away the wildy and free trade, BRING IT BACK!" (this times 100).

Jagex: *facepalm"

Looks awesome. I may attend this. Depends on the cost. I dont really want to go on my own so it really depends on the cost of tickets. Travel. If hotel be necessary.

 

Be interesting to go to a convention for runescape.

 

Might have to buy some t-shirts beforehand lol.

Most of the fan base is in the US, but I suppose London is closer to their JaGeX HQ. Eh, whatever. Someone bring back some pictures.

No proof of this.

Other than typical US logic of we are the biggest country therefore we obviously are the biggest/best/most of nething.

So I guess we can ignore the fact that a large majority of the servers are US based.

Do ittt. Tipit power!

 

Btw for anyone looking at getting the train, Advance tickets are usuall put on sale 3 months before your required travel date, so look around May 28th into early June and you can find some great deals. For whoever was trying to travel from Scotland, Glasgow?

At the bottom you can see when Advance tickets for Virgin Trains are available.

I dont know the drinking age in England, but ill assume its 21 like in America.

 

 

So this is for players 21 or older that live near London and have the money/interest in going.

 

Yea looks like extremely few players will be going...

Since they removed location tags for like 98% of the servers and they have been on and offline we have no way to say for certain where they are.

Equally will US being home to most server hosters and that fact it is geographically bigger are factors. Plus server location means very little, as proven by the fact that if you have decent net there is virtually no ping difference regardless of location.

Be best to have 18+ I guess. Otherwise all the kids will be like "Wildy Riot in the Multipurpose room in 20 minutes!" :roll:

Even factoring in a generous margin of error that's pretty conclusive.
