Maybe next they can give us a log in game where we play one of those games where you have a car that has to dodge back and forth on the road to get around obstacles, and give out xp lamps based on how long till you crash.

 

Don't speak it into existence...it would be scary, but ironically more fulfilling. Loved your post though.

 

On another note, did anyone get above 30fps? I managed to pull 5fps in the lobby yesterday when no one was speaking. Hope they get that sorted soon.

...Alright, the Elf City update lured me back to RS over a year ago.

I have heard from multiple people that the 'Lucky' items are degradable. Can anyone confirm?

 

If that is indeed the case, I can't see this hurting the market after everyone realizes and the panic'ers stop panicking.

And so the world will end. I think a victim of love rather than hate, for love's ever been the more destructive weapon, sure.

I noticed they offer things like the Katana or other items you had to buy membership cards with as prizes. I like that

They aren't degradable. All the high end items such as Bandos/Arma are identical to the normal versions other than the fact that they're untradeable.

This and the start of movable screen parts, were the best part of the update.

Anyone else predict that Jagex will soon just close down F2p and make the game require a subscription to play?

Do you have any way of confirming that statement? Screen shot? Mod Quote? I'm not saying you are untrustworthy, I would just like definite proof.

As another point, it has no lore, and doesn't actually exist since it has no game location. I greatly dislike the idea of adding content that doesn't actually fit into the game itself. The fact that it doesn't actually fit into the game at all is my major objection to this. I can live with the other stuff, but its like someone got high, thought this would be a good idea, and thumb tacked a flash game onto RuneScape.

That is actually a really good point (the lack of lore). It would be nice if this actually fit into the same somehow with a story or purpose.

I once met a man named Jesus at a Home Depot. Is this the Messiah returned at last?

 

And i once beat someone named Jesus in a chess game. Does that mean I'm smarter than the messiah?

No.

 

At this point, I really don't think that's going to happen. They have too much to lose by doing that.

I don't think so seeing as then they would like "lose" their Golden Joystick award for No.1 F2P MMORPG.

It's totally a way to get new members. I got a slayer xp lamp on one of my f2p accounts and you literally can't claim it unless you subscribe. You subscribe or discard it.

 

No biggie right? Imagine getting a divine. You better believe you're subscribing for that sucker. (Or discarding, learning what a divine is, and crying yourself to sleep.)

Also I wonder what would happen if you Pked a "Lucky Armadyl godsword"

 

In the FAQ it says that Lucky items are destroyed on death.

 

They aren't degradable. All the high end items such as Bandos/Arma are identical to the normal versions other than the fact that they're untradeable.

 

They say they are identical stat-wise. They don't mention anything about whether they degrade or not.

This. Why not add it as a booth at the traveling circus? It would fit in better as a carnival game, and might entice more players to search out the circus each week, to get free training experience along with a prize (and encourage new players to do more exploring of the map).

I'm more interested in the new items introduced in this update than the typical doomsayers that always get attention with every update. Too bad that the items are so rare that we have so little information about them.

No, Jagex enjoys their "number one Free to play MMO" title too much and the recently added incentives to become a member would be rather pointless if they were going to scrap the whole free-to-play game. Take a look at the PC gaming industry, Free to Play gaming with optional subscriptions/micro-transactions is still a growing trend.

Lol, that's absolutely hilarious. :)

 

 

As for the update, I got 50 + 50 gp...which seems to be actually really common.

 

I personally don't have any problems with the update as is, but if it turns out the rewards are common then there may be an issue. I don't expect that to be the case, though.

 

Good luck to everyone else spinning away. :thumbsup:

Yeah having f2p and potentially winning awards for being No.1 F2P (although I think most judges seem to judge based on the p2p version of RS) Is basically free advertising. Take f2p away and they lose a huge chunk in their marketing.

Mainly, I don't see WTF the point of this update was, or is? What are they trying to do?

A much better implementation would be that u get the icon and it's an incoming NPC Contact type dealyo from abyssal services or w/e that then teleports you to Yelp's place; much like a random event.
