May-11-2012 - The Evolution of Combat

Recommended Posts

Last week you may have spotted Mark talking about an exciting addition to RuneScape coming your way. The eagle-eyed among you might even have seen some of the teasers weve released over recent weeks. It gives us great pleasure to announce that the evolution of combat is well into development and will be coming this summer. In fact, this update is so huge it promises to be one the largest content updates in RuneScapes history!

 

At RuneFest 2011, Mod Chris L and Mod Rathe discussed the ins and outs of the current combat system, its pros and cons, and the changes that we and you - the players - would like to see. Weve been working hard since then to completely overhaul and upgrade the combat system; to make it more fluid, interactive and exciting for everyone, and to lay the foundations for the future!

 

As this is such a significant evolution of the game, well be running our first ever BETA test, starting in the week commencing with the 25th of June. We value your input, and we know you are the best people to tell us what works and what doesnt.

 

Next week we'll be sharing many more details and how to get access to the Beta test, so check back in with us and be ready to mark your calendars for the big day!

 

This is your chance to impact the shape of RuneScape's evolving combat system by giving us your feedback. When the full launch occurs well be re-defining RuneScape and taking the game play and excitement to a whole new level.

This makes me want to buy a nice arsenal of combat gear since it will make things interesting.

 

I hope it makes combat more skill-based than luck-based.

Well, I can say I am excited about it. Almost reminds me with the massive graphic update a few years back. Should be fun to test and whatnot :smile:

I'm surprised they didn't do this earlier. Think of how many bugs could have been prevented by player testing. More importantly, think of how many bugs that made it live wouldn't have been blamed on Jagex QA.

Action bars anyone?

 

I guess not much to do until more info is released next week.

I think the problem is that they often want to keep thing secret too, to stop people being able to benefit from price changes which may occur due to an update. And to be honest, the RS community isn't one I would exactly trust with a secret.

Guessing/hoping it'll be a beta-server where you get a blank jmod style account on which you can pick any stats and any gear.

Glad they're doing this. I wouldn't want to imagine what would happen if they had released the entire rework without player testing...

Really glad they are putting out a Beta for it. I wonder what you will have to do to get your hands on playing the beta.

Based on the 1 previous beta test they did (RS2) I'm gonna guess there's a 12/10 chance of it being members only, especially since 90% of the combat mechanics, gear and bosses that matter are, and will remain, members features.

After all, one the community's best features is knowing how to exploit things in creative ways. :lol:

 

Yeah, I will assume most will do the beta just for the playing experience and it'll be members only based on the RS2 beta back in 2004.

They value our input.

 

Who they kidding ????

 

I think they should be spending more on the cheating bot issue.

 

They seem to have no time for the honest player.

Maybe I'll actually log in to try the new system after it's implemented. Either way, I'm actually somewhat excited.

Yeah cause the big up-coming optimus botnuke 2.0 that they have been working hard on is not at all working on the bot issue...
