News: Top RuneScape Geography Guru Announced!

Recommended Posts

Last week we asked RuneScapes geography geniuses to tell us where five Chocatrice campaign posters had been posted around RuneScape.

 

Hundreds of you demonstrated your skills by correctly identifying all five locations, but with only one signed T-shirt up for grabs, we needed to randomly select a winner. And that winner is...

 

Magus Xerces!

 

Congratulations! Magus Xerces is now the proud owner of a slightly soiled (but massively signed) Chocatrice campaign T-shirt. Well done, sir; we bow to your RuneScape-based geographical knowledge.

If youd like to see whether you got the correct answers, you can find them on the competition thread.

 

Finally, thanks go to Gizzy Gazza and Dartron for their excellent Chocatrice poster bombing skills, and if youre waiting to see who won the most epic Easter battle of all time - Chocatrice or Evil Chicken - all will be revealed very soon!

RuneScape Geographer and Keeper of T-shirts

 

Congrats from me! :). Did anyone actually try this? I didn't...

To be honest, I didn't even knew there was an event like this.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

Personally, I find myself angered by this event, having known about it due to the RS front page news feed. With how Jagex set it up, only a player who is/was a P2P'er can have any chance at completing it and entering for the shirt prize. Jagex should have made it five locations in F2P that anyone could find, and they shut out their F2P community from entering by not doing so. The whole thing was not fair towards a good chunk of the RS community, especially the whole F2P community, and places disgrace on Jagex for launching it without thinking about this issue. :notalk:

In the current regime when has Jagex ever cared about F2P?

You make it sound like running through a few level 87 monsters is hard which it really shouldn't be at your level.

Most of the time with t-shirts, they use a pretty girl to wear and show it, I really hope Jagex does have prettier staff on their team than that girl. :s Honestly, she's not wrong, but I can't say she has an attractive face. :s

I entered this. Quite easy overall unless you've never been into new Burthorpe.

 

None the less, it was all in good fun. Not like that other competition where you post your avatar chathead with one of the new tatoos from the SOF and you go in the draw for lifetime membership.

The girl is the model for the shirt. I think she's quite attractive. Dunno what your problem is. :P

People should stop making sweeping comments about the girl pictured. There is nothing wrong with her and attraction is entirely subjective, to you she may not be pretty, but that does not mean she is not pretty period. Besides why say anything about her appearance if you don't have anything nice to say, that's just douche.

"I don't find her attractive and you do, and seeing as my tastes are clearly superior and well defined (as I get all the chicks all day every day), you are a lower class peasant with poor sight and low standards of the opposite sex. Now excuse me while I go to the grocery and judge everyone."

Hi

 

Sometimes I just luv you so much dude <3: (on a strictly platonic level that is...)

 

Whether or not the girl is pretty will always be a matter of the eye of the beholder.

 

Now back to the topic...

Dear [name of girl in picture],

 

Due to the behavior of certain unnamed individuals, I apologize for ever making this thread.

 

Sincerely,

That's exactly my flaming point, LJ13. If Jagex wants more F2P to convert to P2P, bluntly insulting and demeaning F2P'ers with things like this contest is very much NOT the way to go. :shame:

I fail to see how it insults or demeans F2Pers that they couldn't enter the contest. It's kinda a given Jagex are going to prefer giving away free stuff to people they actually profit off of.

 

I can certainly see the case that F2Pers should perhaps have some more contests and such, but I do not see it as an insult or demeaning that this contest happened to exclude f2pers due to the poster locations. There's been contests before this and there'll be ones after it that F2Pers can get on and equally there's been contests before that F2Pers couldn't get in on. It's basically just an extension of the standard P2P vs F2P practice, if you don;t pay for P2P you don't get access to all the content, which in this case happens to be a contest.

Free to play is insulted by everything Jagex does, including free trials of membership.
