If you have managed to miss it / do not read the front page, recently jagex have a news post

02-Nov-2011 - Woox16 vs Dominion Tower: Fight!

The Dominion Tower is a deadly new arena in which players can battle some of the fiercest enemies in RuneScape history. Who better to face this challenge than the bane of boss monsters everywhere... Woox16?

Woox16 needs little introduction, but here's one anyway! He's taken on the terror of Jad with no items and a single prayer point, as seen here. He's killed the Corporeal Beast without food and without any stat draining. He soloed the sinister Nex, and was the first person known to solo the Corporeal Beast.

Woox16 will be taking on the bosses within the Dominion Tower and seeing just how long he can stay alive. Of course, what fun would there be if we didn't throw in a surprise or two?

If you'd like to watch Woox16's progress, and be the first to learn how you could earn some epic loot in the process, then keep an eye on our dedicated forum thread and the RuneScape Facebook page all of this week!

Is supporting specific players like this a good idea, where normal players can't even link videos to the rsof.
Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

I agree it isn't right but I kinda see where it could be going - People do enjoy e-fame and to be mentioned by Jagex in front of Hundreds of thousands of people would be pretty crazy. So some e-fame hunters will strive for this and contnue playing alot (= more subscriptions = money) to try and achive something worthy of a front page mention and thus, becoming e-famouss

As long as this is a chain of continuous events, meaning that prominent players will get featured, I see nothing wrong with it. Plus, I'm interested in the challenge.

In the hands of jagex - No - As is apparent.

But otherwise its a good idea.

(Wd Woox though - For certain various achievements. Not too keen on some that jagex listed (Being jagex fault putting it on front page and condoning it.) but personally I dont care either way. )

..Its very..enlightening on jagex part what they condone nowadays heh. Not surprised.

I have tbh though. If I was one those members who cant log in right now I wouldnt appreciate this 'PR' action on front page while very little info about logging in. =s (Maybe best to waited.. Manners and all. Irrelevant if its different departments..It just 'looks' bad on their part.) Gratefully im not having logging in issues. Just a tower of bugs. ^.^

Again wd to Woox for a mention.

This is a silly little scheme if ever I saw one. Suppose they want it to balance out with Jiblix's e-fame for reasons that didn't do them many favours.

It's pretty much the same as what happened with the video maker guy that I can't remember the name of...
Waste of time in my opinion, why would I bother watching someone else play when I can play myself and have more fun?

Why can't the Big Bang be done by the hand of God?

It could have, but it is next to impossible because it also could have been caused by the flying spaghetti monster, or one of the other infinite number of deity possibilities.

Pretty much what Yay0siris said. I personally like that Woox is getting some attention from jagex, but that's because i don't care about myself getting that attention.

Besides, this isn't the first time jagex have interacted with him, woox duo'd nex with a jmod. (Attempted to as soon as it came out and failed as expected)

I look forward to whatever these 'suprises' are that will be used, but i don't think the video will be interesting besides those. Woox works by doing something 10000 times and taking the best clip, which is obviously amazing. Live isn't as good.

I don't especially like it - as I've said elsewhere, I think it's a rather silly person in their marketing dept going "omg look wat we can do with dat facebook thing" - but it really doesn't matter to me. I barely keep up with the game at all when I'm going through inactive phases; I certainly don't pay attention to who's famous for doing what then either (and during my active phases, I'm too busy playing, lol).

Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

Who.





Cares.

I mean, really? Of all t he things to complain about, we pick this? They've approached a high-profile, very respected PVMer (PVM master?) to traack progress and give 'tips' in DT.

Here's an idea. If you don't like it, don't partake. It's going to help some people, so how is that at all a bad thing?

Edit: Re: E-fame

He's already got e-fame. Already people flocking to him whenever he is in game, already huge numbers of followers and love over YT, so I don't see how this will be "helping" him TO e-fame.

Manifesting more? Maybe.

I don't see what the big deal is. Honestly, I'd never heard of Woox16 before today. What they need to be focusing on is fixing the login issue so many us are having.

Bug/glitch=nex has no HP/doesn't hit. Safespot=/=glitch.

I thought he quit.

Either way, not a single care was given this day. Although I find it interesting that they're taking this direction with community videos. Not sure if it should be on the main page though...

Wouldn't you be a better candidate? What with getting to and beating jad without prayer of any kind? :razz:

Ever since Woox said he quit and made a big stink about it, I just lost all interest in him. Of course he didn't quit, he just felt like making a big scene as if he was really important or something. Now he's being yammered about by some Jagex goon who decided to post about him on the home page. Whatever.

Woox isn't really all that amazing, he just fights bosses a lot, and does it non-stop until he stumbles upon a good strategy. That's rather impressive in it's own right, but nothing too special. I'm sure there are lots of other talented (and I use that term loosely) boss hunters out there in Runescape who just don't get nearly as much attention. Why? Woox is a drama queen.

Honestly don't see anything wrong with this, sure a lot of people are jealous and some feel that he may not be worthier than themselves to get special attention from Jagex. I feel that there is nothing wrong with Jagex recognizing some special players with unique achievements in the game.
