http://services.rune...eek-new-website

We’re proud to present advance details of our completely overhauled website, which will launch at next week’s update, with loads of new features and a community-editable wiki at its core!

As announced and shown in November’s Behind the Scenes, the website will have a distinctive new look, including a brand new RuneScape logo, a darkly cool colour palette and a thorough re-structuring of the front page, putting up-to-the-minute information to the fore.

One exciting addition is an all-new Events section, where our Community teams will be able to advertise events and direct you straight to them with ease, using integrated calendars, mark-able maps and a wealth of other fantastic features.

The news section, in particular, has been streamlined, with increased prominence on the page, and the integration of other news sections. Dev Blogs, for example, no longer hide behind the main news feed and can be seen right alongside other news articles.

The old manual has been transplanted into a new, wiki-based format and will form the core of the new website. With the exception of a few key pages maintained solely by Jagex staff, these pages can be edited, and visual assets can be uploaded, by RuneScape account holders who meet certain baseline requirements. In you, we have an amazing community, from those with a decade of RuneScape experience and knowledge to fresh new faces, and with this change we’re empowering all of you to pool that RuneScape nous for the community to use.

We’ve made these changes, and a whole range of others, to make the new website a slick, convenient resource for the whole RuneScape community, but you’ll have to wait until next week to see the finished result!

The RuneScape Team

In Other News...

- Along with the release of the new website, we will be making hi-scores a members-only feature.

This is for a number of reasons, but the main one is to keep them fresh. We want the hiscores to feature players who will compete with each other, tooth and nail, for hiscore glory. There are many dormant accounts within the hiscores that have not played for a very long time, and this will give new arrivals in Gielinor a shot at hiscore fame alongside the grizzled veterans on equal terms for all.

We want the hiscores to reflect the full range of content that RuneScape has to offer, and hope that they will be a big draw to the full, members’ game for those interested in high-level RuneScape competition on a level playing field.

- We’re pushing back the Wilderness graphics update mentioned in Behind The Scenes, so it’ll no longer be out in November. We’re sorry about this, but it‘s necessary in order to schedule in some of our upcoming anti-bot measures.


I'm curious to know what you guys think about the upcoming RuneScape Wiki set up, how you think it will affect fan sites, and whether or not you will continue to use Tip.It for your game information. And of course.. Jagex is actually cutting back on the features F2P have with the removal of F2P from the high scores. In addition to the regular concerns, F2P will no longer be able to use dynamic stat signatures or use or calculators' auto look up features.

I don't agree with highscores being P2P only, where is the recognition for those in F2P that have trained for years? Make the Highscores show F2P stats if they have 1.5k total plus or more than 250m total xp

It's like...it's like they really, really dislike F2P all of a sudden. :S

Why remove the highscores for them? Inactive accounts is a bit of a weak excuse - they can link the last date logged in to your highscores and say, 'if you haven't logged in in X days, you'll not appear in the highscores anymore'.

I'm also not that thrilled about their new design. But meh, I can't pass judgment on it just yet.

Truth be told now, I'm not sure what Jagex is even.

[EDIT] I totally forgot about this. Wiki? Doesn't this kind of mean they're hugging fansites with one arm and stabbing them in the back? Not sure I agree with this strategy either, but at least Tip.It has a glowing community that I can always lean on (so I won't leave).

Indeed this does kinda screw free-to-play players, such as myself, over, but on the other hand, I have almost anticipated actions such as these from Jagex to further encourage people to get Membership.

Day by day the company is becoming more and more money hungry, I only hope they stop at some point.

If you don't care enough about rs to play $6 a month, why in the world would you care about highscores ?

Also, what is the purpose of a business but to make money ? Jagex's goal isn't to be nice to people, it's to make money.

Think about the 200M stats ranks, those will be mostly gone also if you have a 200M stat and are f2p and then come back you will be on the bottom again.

I'm glad I found League of Legends, it's a much better free game than Runescape :thumbup:

For this reason I refuse to give any money to Jagex, they don't deserve any of the money they have right now.

This old argument again. There are people who actually play F2P because they like it, maybe even more than the P2P version. And yeah, I paid Jagex money through another account mainly because I wanted to say thanks for the great game F2P is.

And yeah, I have a F2P 200m skill and not so noobish ranks in most other F2P skills. And I'm really mad about this. :(

If they really make the hiscores P2P-only they won't get content from me in the (german) wiki. You can probably only edit the wiki as P2P anyway...

<facepalm>

If you've ever PKed before in F2P, or wanted to check up on the stats of someone who claimed to have such-and-such skill, or you were a pure F2Per and proud to show it, you'd only begin to understand the degree of fail in both Jagex's decision and your statement.

I really can't agree with the highscores being p2p. It would make far more sense if there was a 'minimum activity' limit for f2pers. Active F2Pers are needed to encourage people to become members, and are a large part of the community.

It's like they occasionally forget why there is such a thing as the free game. Learn your own business model, Jagex.

While I like the fact that inactive players won't show up in the highscores I dislike that they skip whole f2p. What this means is that someone with 200M stats can't take a break without keep paying, also it means that active f2pers get punished for nothing. Just make it so that you have to get xp or minigame points every 3 months (enough time to go on holiday)

Also why can't they make it that you have a f2p highscore and a p2p highscore? They could even limit the f2p highscore to the top 500k players

"The World's Most Popular Free MMORPG" indeed, gotta love that phrase.

Ah so Jagex should cut off potential revenue streams so that f2pers don't get into unfair fights.
Thank you for showing me the error in my thinking.

You ignored what I was actually saying. Unless large amounts of FREE players stop playing because of this, then it was a smart business move.

Jagex just alienated their most loyal fanbase. Seriously, for every legit free player there were 16 bots. Who else would put up with that?

99 dungeoneering achieved, thanks to everyone that celebrated with me!
