This confirms (more or less) what people suspected for weeks, but this is one hell of a bombshell.

Well, this explains the 10% friend xp boost thing, the RWT return , the loyalty points ... and many other crapy things big companies like to do.

No virus here.. Why people distrust others so much.


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.

Did anyone bother to actually read the article past that part? They have a new Research & Development department, and Andrew does not own any part of Jagex anymore, but acts as their Principal Architect.

Back on Topic: We already suspect Jagex is no longer under the Gower brother's control. Even though Andrew still plays a role in the development of Runescape,

he and Paul simply don't have any significant power over Jagex anymore.

It's probably just from the advertisements judging the fact I did not get one and I have ADP installed.

Company buyouts happen all the time, just hope the new investments prove substancial to the games and future games development.

The link is clean as far as I can tell.

 

To sum up the article, Andrew and his bothers sold their shares in Jagex but have set up 'Fen Research' which is 90% owned by Andrew. It is focused on development, working with Jagex Technology. Why and how is unknown.

People distrust others so much because just about every single day we get multiple topics in GD created by a new user who joined 2-10 minutes before posting the topic. About 90% of the time the topic will have a link to a phishing site. That's why I never click any links that people post. If they couldn't bother to actually post the picture rather than the link, or couldn't bother to copy and paste the article in quote tags, then it isn't so important that I need to view it.

Whaaaaa...... :uhh:

 

But.... but..... no......

 

This blew my mind, even though it happened in 2010.

 

...I don't know what to say.

 

I hope they don't kill Runescape, but the Gowers were my last hope. :unsure:

As one of the responses to the article said:

Andrew does not own any part of the company he founded, according to the charts. That speaks volumes more than a PR release.

I weep for the future of my beloved RuneScape. :(

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

This is old news as far as him selling his shares, but "Fen Research" is interesting.

To respond to the contents of the article, I'm very surprised that the company is no longer in the same shape it was before. Then again, I can't say I'm surprised judging by the updates recently - those that deviated from their original principles anyway.

The good folks at stelldardawncentral were responsible for all the past charts about jagex ownership - and finally there you have the new chart for 2010 ..and wow.

 

Andrew Gower now owns a whopping ZERO percent of Jagex, the rest 2 Gowers own less than 5%. Venture capitalists now own 90% of Jagex...

 

Basically, RS is an abondoned game and Jagex an abondoned company.

 

I just don't know what to feel anymore. I always wanted to blame Jagex for doing the fake wildy "poll", letting the bots and RWTers get completely out of control, and come up with all of these stupid, insolent RWT schemes to extract more $ off RS. But now, I can see that it was never the Jagex I knew from 2002-2009 - it was the bunch of investment bankers who couldn't give a [bleep] what RS turned into as long as they got enough cash off it before they sold off their shares too - leaving the company to go bankrupt and the game to die.

 

Well [bleep] them. [bleep] their asses. They could never understand how much this 'game' meant for me and many others over the last 10 years before they decided to stab, rape, and brutally hang RS on a pole. And Andrew - I wish you could have at least told us - left us a goodbye message before your demonic investors took over then raped the company and game to pieces.

 

Lost,

angry,

profoundly sad,

but perhaps no longer in shock...

 

time to quit, people.

Which there is nothing wrong with in itself.. However these are not "good" money hungry investors... If they were good investors they would know that meeting the customer needs and wants will increase their profits in the long run... ... These are short-term investors..
