Definitely an awesome week! I enjoyed reading all four articles:


Xp Cap: I definitely agree with you. I never understoof why they have done it like this, and their excuse for the members' doors in dungeoneering is pathetic. There's still a lot left to be done here.

Storyline: yes, yes and yes! I'm on my way to the questcape at the moment, and it really makes a world of a difference if it's some random quest like one small favour or one that actually has a story to appeal.


Fictional 1: You, sir, are awesome. I thorougly enjoyed reading those detailed descriptions, and until now this is the best fictional I have read. Period. I hope there's more to come =)

Fictional 2:Looks interesting, but I guess I'll have to wait to see how it evolves. No comment atm.

For those that have embarked on the adventure that is reading the 1st part of the eight-parter: the real story is yet to begin :)

So I understand it if you cannot comment on it ;)

I would like to ask you to (and I will ask this for the next 6 weeks too) to rethink and repeat your thoughts on it by the time it is finished (somewhere close to new years)

I really agree with the statements in the f2p dungeneering article. The 'not-followed-consistancy' irritates me when dungeoneering and even makes me stop playing it whilst it should be a high valuable form of gameplay.

I Love fictional articiles, as i rarely read the other articiles as i find them opinion pieces and most ppls opinions don't match
But ye looking forward to the rest of these 2 stories <3

Don't let me down ts_Stormrage, you got somthing quite interesting with your story going

I don't know which mod did this. I don't know why they did it. If they're looking for money, I can tell them I don't have any as I'm a student. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over 4 years of RuneScape. Skills that I have worked hard for and people like them can't take them away. If they give me my particles back now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for them, I will not pursue them. But if they don't, I will look for them, I will find them, and they won't like what'll happen

Sees_all's article was amazing, it really helped convey the feelings of that 5% who are cursed with higher combat on f2p worlds. =D>

In any case I would also like to applaud the creative pieces... They were pretty fun to read

You're too kind.

Lets first bring this one to a proper end...

And by then I'll probably want to write editorials instead of fictionals, cuz thats what I normally do (this is the first proper fictional i've ever written)...

But I promise you that if I get a good idea; I'll write it down :D

Considering that level 3 leechers - who I consider a different breed from real level 3 skillers as night is different from day - are the player-found solution to the 50% experience cap, Jagex will likely not do anything else about it or put their fix at the very, very bottom of the priority list. But good on you Sees to air the dirty laundry, so to speak.

Nothing more permanent than a temporary measure. Heh. :roll:

Thanks for the positive comments. I however will likely not be able to continue writing my story until Christmas break in December, as my classes are very demanding of my time, and have even caused me to stop playing Runescape.

The editorials were a good read, and brought up some interesting points. I can't imagine trying to get through Dungeoneering on F2P with the severe limitations Jagex has put in place.

Ts_Stormrage, I like what your writings reminded me of as I read it. Growing up on a farm all my life, we lived out in the bush in the middle of nowhere, near a lake. I could relate to the need to get enough firewood for the winter, to have to catch fish (as we do it every winter commercially), and the hunting of animals (generally deer) to fill the freezers. I love when I can relate to the story, even in a small way because it brings me into the story. I'm looking forward to how the story develops over the course of the next few weeks. :thumbup:

I was pleasantly surprised by Sees_all1's article. It clearly explained an inconsistency in Jagex's policies without just ranting and, better yet, addressed the solution. It was nice to see an article that commented on an article rather than just explaining it, and was one of the best Times articles I've seen in the past couple of months. Kudos to him/her.

My comment wasn't just directed at you but all story makers here at Tip.it, But yes I am a fan of your writing Ts even if sometimes I may not agree with it.

What i'd love to see personally is a fictional story based on the events that happened in While guthix sleeps, Nomads Requiem, and The Lastest elf quest (temple of light?, not sure)

I don't know which mod did this. I don't know why they did it. If they're looking for money, I can tell them I don't have any as I'm a student.

One of the not so 'typical' articles, finally. Sees_all should be nominated for the Editorial panel, in fairness. Actually agreed with most of the points addressed. (Damn long though, 1477 words!)

This is why Free to Play worlds is so... unappealing. Inconsistent, laggy, and just plain irritating.

About the other articles; I never read fictionals, I'd rather read a novel. The quest article was a bit of a drag, couldn't be bothered to read it.

Ok, we get it, there are about 5 of you regulars who don't "waste their time" reading our fictional pieces. There is no need to remind us about it every week we post one. :wall:

I definitely agree with the dg article. Now with occult and warped floors, no high level P2P player would use F2P. Granted that people who haven't reached that point would then use F2P worlds until then, SA's recommendation of some sort of scaling factor would make much more sense.

I'm pretty sure there's a lot more than 5 people who skip the fictionals. Don't kid yourselves now ;)

As for the DG Article: I completely agree, and I was genuinely surprised when I found out that f2p worlds still had the members doors. Another example of Jagex having poor communication and consistency.
