28-Feb-2012 - Squeal of Fortune

Recommended Posts

Lol at all the squeal of fortune bugs, Jagex released a greedy update and got some of the worst glitches unleashed because of it. Kharma is a [bleep]

 

Bugs? Did I miss something?

A few staking bugs, and this trade bug where players can remove items in the 2nd trade screen, and the other player won't be able to see it happen.

I lol'd at my rare and super-rare items today. The super rare was a dragon chain. The normal rare? A dragon plate. :P

This whole thing looks and feels stupid.

 

The animation although well, uhh, animated, is so just cheesy. The rewards are: garbage, more garbage, Not-even-good-enough-to-be-called-garbage and then a bunch of items that you will never get that also dont make any sense.

And dont even get me started on the blatant members advertising

 

I at least hope they made it not 100%(theoretically) random, and did put some form of balance in it. By the gods, if it was 100% random, one guy could be rolling 50 million gp a day when someone with just the same level of skill and determination could be bringing in 50 gp a day.

Personally, I think people make too much hoo-ha (sp?) out of nothing. It's a silly little update that can give you free things. Yes, some free stuff is terrible, some are so rare you are more than likely to never get them but so what? This was never mentioned anywhere by Jagex (as far as I know), it's not meant to be a massive update like Tzhaar rework and new cape. Get over yourselves and enjoy some random stuff.

The thing I don't get. If the animation really doesn't make a difference to the outcome why isn't it animated in the game engine properly? So clicking the squeal of fortune button teleports you to an instanced area where you can pill a lever and see the animation rendered in the proper game engine instead of the silly cartoon graphics.

Now that it's been a few days since the update, i'll ask a question we may have a better possibility in answering:

 

How rare are the rare items? I've not been keeping up with the related threads perfectly, but I still haven't seen any first-hand rare spins. I have also not seen many pictures of second-hand rare spins, which tells me they are in fact just as rare as I first expected.

They tweeted yesterday and said that someone won the first head tattoo but haven't named anyone else as winning and top prizes. Make of that what you will...

There was pic of a head tattoo on this thread(around page 13 I think?). But yeah, rare means rare and tbh if someone had heard of more than a few cases in this short amount of time it would be waaay too much.

Is there a timeframe on this or is it here to stay? Been away for so long, to come back to this it just doesn't feel right. But hey, a lot of things don't feel right about RS anymore before anyone accuses me of being prejudiced against goblins

Those pictures were provided by Jagex on the official wiki. So they aren't instances where the items were actually won.

Try searching for help on the RSOF or sending in a bug report here.

How much xp did it give you, and what was your fletching level?

Updates like these make me feel angry, it got nothing to deal with RS.

Last time I was just walking around with a noobaccount and just by walking around I slowly received money :S?

I meen honoustly, this is not the game I once liked any more, not even close actually...

 

I actually hope Jagex will lose a big bunch of players soon because of trash like this, throw all the bullshit overpowered weapons away and go back to 2004 or something.

Not liking the update is one thing, but hoping that they lose business because they're trying to appeal to newer players is petty and makes you look like a vindictive child. RuneScape has grown to the point of games like Final Fantasy XI, where the sheer amount of content thrown at a new user is overwhelming to the point where a slow start can cause someone to log off and not return. God forbid Jagex throw an insignificant amount of gold at a player and provide them some starting tools so they aren't completely lost as to what to do.

Those reds are WAY too high a %. I've personally spun 36 times over a number of accounts and not once had a red. And the rest of the forum seems to have similar luck.

Yeah, I've spun probably over 100 times on all my accounts and the best I've gotten is a couple medium lamps. No one has a drop sample size large enough yet, but from what I hear, most people are talking about 1/10000 for the 'grand prize'.
