Tip.It Times - 27th June 2010

Adding the word "personally" indicates for whom the writer is speaking. Simply saying "I" is inconclusive. The writer could have been saying "I, as a member of the Supreme Court of the United States of America" or "I, as a woman," or any of a thousand thousand other possible combinations.

If you use "I" you already are telling the reader for whom you are speaking. Anything else is irrelevant, it's just wrong.

They "fixed" it because it people paid a cheap amount of money for decent boots. Jagex didn't want people to pay a cheap amount to get boots of that quality.

 

And honestly, inflation obviously didn't happen if you looked at the prices. That leaves jealousy that some people made money when *you* didn't. Way I see it, it's no different then if these people went to barrows or GW and got a great drop there. People who object to some people making a small fortune on this are, in all honesty, probably just jealous that they didn't get their piece of the pie, no offense.

Well, if you say so... But that wasn't the stated reason Jagex gave with the update. If they're now saying that's the reason then they really should think things through before doing them so that they actually know why they're performing an update and can be honest with us from the start. As far as I (and pretty much everyone else I know) can make out, there was nothing wrong with the system as it existed. Nobody actually used the boots in place of dragon/rune/addy boots etc on a regular basis outside some very rarefied occasions, so it was all entirely unnecessary.

 

I don't believe you can accurately predict the impact of any one event on the Runescape economy after so little time and with a complete lack of data. All we (you and I both) have are assumptions. I'm willing to make an educated guess which seems to support the blindingly obvious fact that an influx of billions of gp WILL have an effect of some kind on the economy regardless of how small that shift may be, especially when compared to the daily impact of overpriced pvp drops and the like.

Hahahahahaha. Okay seriously this was too easy, if you say "I" at the beginning of a sentence, you don't need to put "personally" before the verb you are using. When using first person we already know that whatever you say, see, etc. is going be yours.

I personally believe you have no English skills

 

Does your ego feel better for that?

Well i have a pure named 2nd damage and i had maybe 50 boots. I refuse to alch them or do anything with them cause of how ridiculous this update was and how after i think i can call my self a rs vet (since yoyo) there have been 2 significant other updates that i despised these though were needed in some sense the trade update was needed for sure and the other one the change to pest control which each sparked huge revolts but were necessary and after getting over my intial anger from these i realized how important it was to make the game fair. But this, this is just flat out ridiculous jagex in the past has been like gods hand controlling fairness in this game which in my opinion has done a great job since it first started way back in 2001. but not in this update making these boots jump to 45k an alch is the worst update that jagex has ever ever done. worse in sense as it allowed people to earn millions of gp in no time at all and as a mercher i dont really care about the whole impact on the ge prices as lets say it introduced say 4 trillion gp or so maybe less stop and think about a few things... 76trick, real earned pvp drops, boss drops siglies and such, normal drops, all this is introudced each day and now that we are about to reach prime play time for most people that play rs ( northern hemispheres summer) we will witness a substantial increase in all prices but that is just the annual increase as people begin to play more, this does not get me mad. What really pisses me off is how long i worked in order to make my cash on my main magicsetter who had about 300m and yoyo and all that jazz but this took lets see hmm 6 years... this is just obsurd people could have played for say 6 months and have more money than i have made in 6 years from around 750ish alchs. oh and i heard another thing thats been getting me really upset if its true seeing as jagex has alot of its employees that play this game they updated the price in order for account to make cash which is just ridiculous they go all on about price manpulation and how scamming is bad and all and boom what do they do change a price for boots that should be like 200gp to 75k and there reasoning "these accounts have had the ability to make this amount of cash we just made it easier for them" i dont know about you guys but since i mainly use my pure and buy boots i have never NEVER seen anyone sell boots for more than 25k and thats just for one pair for a desperate match. it should be 7.5 k which is an understandable price not 75k just too much.

If you actually want anyone to read that, might I suggest you become re-acquainted with your 'enter' key at the very least.

I think one person noticed the cheap price of Climbing boots and thought "WTF this is to cheap!", changes the price, community goes crazy and Jagex later gives the excuse the person responisble thought.

 

Now my problem with that is:

Why did only climbing boots get changed?

 

And what the point of Climbing boots? We had to do a quest for it.

 

And of course:

Who will buy climbing boots now. It's basically a useless item.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

CLIMBING BOOTS:

+2 Strength bonus

Costs 75,000

 

 

RUNE BOOTS:

+2 Strength bonus

+12 Stab defence, 13 Slash defence, 14 Crush defence, +10 Summon defence

Costs 102,000

 

PRICE DIFFERENCE:

27,000

A price enough to pay for Rune boots good defence stats.

 

RESULT OF THIS CRAP

Another item [bleep]ed up and now useless.

 

 

WHAT JAGEX WILL DO?

Take down price of Climbing boots to somewhere between 10,000 GP to 30,000 GP

And you sir, are one of the annoying nitpickers I talk about in my article, and therefor your criticism is often ignored :D

I thought you wanted criticism...

I do :) but if people focus on the grammar and spelling, instead of the message the article brings, then you're not going to convince me you've read the article the way it was meant :)

Explain, then, how both these sentences are true and how you would clarify them, if at all. They are both the same speaker and used in the same paragraph.

 

" I, ________, wouldn't urinate on Paul Reiser if he was on fire."

 

"I, ________, would work to keep Paul Reiser alive using all means available to me."

 

You just don't like adverbs, is that it?

I agree with TS. Unless the article's grammar and spelling is terrible, noone should complain much. The articles are supposed to bring discussion on issues with Jagex, not on grammar and spelling.

 

Like i have said, Rachyas article sums up what we already know, so i found it boring.

 

Oh and if anyone want to grammar/spell check my writing, PLEASE DO. I appreciate the critism!

First, sorry if I got the quote part wrong, I think I did it correctly. Second, I'll see if I can get my wife to look over your stuff. She's a professional transcriptionist and really knows her spelling and grammar. Why do you think I never ever use the often accepted abbreviations? I'd get in trouble!! I'll have to try to talk her into it, she knows nothing about Runescape, and so has little interest.

Random note, wasn't sure where this should go but...

 

"...that if you have your varrock teleport setting for the G.E, that anyone using your house portal will also be teleported to the G.E.? (Thanks to joerlegacy!)"

 

That DYK is repeated twice on the DYK archives, thought that should be noted.

 

Sorry if this doesn't belong here!
