Jagex Working On Third MMO

Recommended Posts

It bugs me a lot how Jagex (especially Gerhard) is trying to make a different game look bad. What a [puncture].

 

Yes Runescape players always joke about how Runescape is so much better than other games, but I think MMG took it one step too far. What he said was just unprofessional, especially as a CEO. There's no reason to bash other games- if you think your game is better than theirs, then why don't you prove it with the quality of the updates, Mark. Not implying that the recent updates to Runescape are bad (infact, recently, they have been quite good!).

By popular demand, this signature is back- however I currently do not have a blog up at the moment and if I did I wouldn't update it. Sorry, the sig links to nowhere :( .

So we should this 3rd MMO to be shelved a couple of times, redesigned and then released in about 8 years. Sounds about right looking at Jagex's recent form.

He's been insulting Free Realms because Sony was interested in investing in Jagex in 2005, but after looking at their business model and how they created Runescape, they just went and created their own MMO. If I were him and they did that to me, I'd be saying a few more choice words.

Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change. And that infinitesimal change ripples outward-ever smaller but everlasting. I will get forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter-maybe less than a lot, but always more than none.

My opinion; RuneScape realistically has a "good" 2 more years in it, maybe 3 after that at just being nearly the same.

I don't think you've got the right game there. Runescape is still accelerating in terms of growth. Ten years of additional content before ironing out the last bugs and graphics so they can retire it to a server farm seems perfectly reasonable to me, and is very much the type of project runescape is.

Good thing your predictions are rarely ever anywhere near realistic.

I can easily see the benefits of making a third game. As he says, with hindsight so many things in Runescape would have been different but now cannot be changed due to the sheer amount of rants and community upheaval that would have to happen.

 

Runescape cannot have major changes to the underlying mechanics now. It has been out for too long and has to many devoted players for it to happen. but with a third, they could finally make changes people want but would not accept if put into Runescape.

Hmm.. he says 10 years.. but what will happen after that?

 

We can't tell the future, but I wonder what the fact of the matter that he is able to give a prominent figure such as 10 means?

Runescape will be almost 20 years old if it lasts ten more years. I don't think most of us will still be playing to care.

 

But imagine how coveted bunny ears, scythes, and yoyos are going to be in ten years. I imagine most of the tradeable holiday items will be gone as well.

Ten more years is one way to look at it.

$600 for each member they can string along for those 10 years is another way to look at it.

 

And that's just 10 years of planned updates. No telling how long they would keep it up after the end of updates.

Well, $600 for ten years aint bad, when you compare it to a company that puts out a game a year at $60.

Free Realms inspired? That game is for like 6 year-olds...

 

Gerhard called Free Realms "insipid" not "inspired," and criticized Sony for trying to appeal to everyone, but ultimately appealing to nobody. Big difference.

 

Jagex the game that has years gaps in between high level content is one to talk. #-o

What exactly is the connection between high lvl content and not catering to 6-year olds...? And are you kidding me?! We're getting atleast one high lvl update a month now! The next update is elite TT ffs.

Agreed. Remember that various people just like to bag on Jagex like this for anything no matter how off topic it is, tip is to just ignore them.

 

 

As said previously, with hindsight they could make a fantasy MMO much much better than Runescape.

I was under the impression that thirdscape has been known to exist, but no further than that. It has been even less info than what we had of mechscpe/stellar dawn, which is why nobody talked about it.

This isn't Thirdscape. ThirdScape was cancelled as a standalone project by MMG and was integrated into RuneScape as Dungeoneering. The MMO mentioned in the OT is what we at Stellar Dawn Central (formerly MechScape World) call FourthScape and was first mentioned in an interview back in January 2010.
