This should be fun. :-k
Next task will be to see how much we can glitch it. :lol:


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...

I think it's really great that they're opening this up to a player beta test before going live with it. :thumbup:

Is it just me, or have they bringing in progressively better updates so far this year? Yes there's been the odd back step (SoF and Mark's bs response), but overall things have been getting better. They really seem to be working hard to make up for last year's descent into Hell.

Awesome. This put a smile on my face. I hope I can participate in the beta test, I'd love to do a lot of testing on combat Magic.

It's hard to balance being angry with them for their bull they've pulled over the last few weeks, and the honest praise they deserve for a move like this.

Glad they're doing a beta test for this... will know whether to train combat as much as possible now or wait til the update, depending on whether it seems good or not.

first ever BETA test

First ever? lolwut. I'm pretty sure I played RS2 beta before.



If they pull any of that you-have-to-be-a-member-to-help-us-with-beta-testing stuff...

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.


RS2 beta was free to play for the last few days.



Since mod mat k left good things have been happening rofl..

What has a mod working in the customer support department have to do with anything?

Not that it is a big deal but it's Interesting that they choose to call it the first ever beta test, as if they weren't aware of their own history.. Sounds interesting nonetheless.

Sorry but I have not read anything positive along those lines at all, sort of saw something about Optimus but it was just in the fact
that it was in very early testing stage.

I hope they finally repair the F2P Combat Triangle with this. It's too far beyond overdue, especially since Magic lacks things like climb-by-level attack speeds, damage improvement, etc. ... That, and it really sucks to get melee'd to death in F2P as a mage because your place in the Combat Triangle seems to be intentionally devalued. :|

On other notes, maybe we'll finally get to see first-person views and/or some direct keyboard-based movement becoming part of the game? Possibly even manual configuration of hotkeys for those who could use it, seeing as not everyone can really use parts of the current config? :huh:

Really? Cause my account was created on RSC and I didn't get members until after RS2 launch and I don't recall being allowed on the Beta at all.

@Washac
It doesn't matter what you have or have not read, they are keeping details quiet (like with the first bot nuke) so bot devs don't get a head start on work arounds. The fact, however, remains unchanged that they ARE working hard on it. Also that info seems wrong, in the Engine team QA like a fortnight ago they said optimus was 'weeks rather than months' away, so most take this to mean we should be seeing it go live sometime in June or July.

Kinda agree. Also, the effigy nerf seems less bad when you consider how close the RuneSpan was... Of course, if they were really smart they'd have released the effigy nerf a week after the RuneSpan came out.

The SoF thing seems more like something the investors forced on RS. Can't entirely blame them considering how profitable it must be.

Should be interesting.
