Please don't do that Jagex. I hate that sort of thing in castleville and the like, people buying big levels instead of working for it. You get too much of that in real life already. Please let runescape remain an honest place.

most likely referring to items similar to ice mask or katana, if it is even implying that at all.
Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

For some reason that article was edited I think. It originally said:

Speaking today at the Free to Play Summit in London, Rob Smith said it was ‘not desirable’ for Jagex to charge customers for microtransactions as well as a monthly subscription to RuneScape.


And then later said they might consider it if the audience is happy with it. But the core of the article (which Jagex promoted on their Facebook saying "Look we're resisting microtransactions!") was that Jagex would resist the temptation to switch to microtransactions and would continue with their subscription model.

Also read the article title:

Runescape studio resists virtual currency temptations

They don't commit one way or another to microtransactions from that small, small quote in the article. I'd say, don't overreact to this news, but don't stop building the nuclear bunkers.

Link title, OP is a troll.

Also Jagex said years ago that RuneScape is incompatible with microtransactions, but their future MMOs may be built with the model in mind.

Guys please. Don't point fingers saying he's a troll or he's an idiot, etc. Maybe he just didn't notice/take in the title. There's no need to get rude.

Not to validate the original "slippery-slopers" but most people have become accepting of gamecard bonuses which would have more than likely been the "first step" to a "gentle introduction"...
That said, you should change your title to something with less exaggeration. It's quite misleading and will probably lead others to believe that microtransactions are ACTUALLY here.

If anything the expansion to more platforms and partial or total abandonement of the now crutch-like Java are far more interesting to take from this.

Oh I can see them eating dirt for doing this..but I don't think that will stop them.

This is just going to affect EVERY player in RuneScape. Whether it takes months or years (if the game even [bleep]ing exists that long, stupid Jagex), I wouldn't be able to guess.

Locking this since the thread was created with a different idea in mind and it no longer really applies. If anyone wants to create a new thread to talk about a different aspect of microtransactions (speculating, etc.), you're welcome to.
