Yes. I understand why they make these descisions, "good" or "bad". While I may not agree with all of them, I still understand their strategies and I respect them.

Pretty much this. :thumbup:

I guess it would depend on what 'Jagex' is.

As a gaming company, they have moved away from providing an epic game to milking it. While I can't blame them for wanting to make as much money as possible, as a player, I have to wish they wouldn't.

I respect them least in their ability to communicate with players, in a clear and timely fashion. For all their talk about trying to move away from this, they are still a very secretive company. They also lie to their players, and I can't accept that.


But if you talk to some of the people they have working for them, some of them are really awesome people who are really into games. One mod in particular I have gotten a few chances to talk to (with other people) for extended periods of time as they did their other work, and I really respect them, and the other people who work for Jagex who are like them. I even once got a glimmer of what a jmod was really thinking, contrary to the line towed by the company which was kind of neat.

So while I don't really respect the company, I do respect a great many of the people who work for it.

They're a business. To my knowledge, they don't do anything extraordinary (building hospitals in Africa, blah blah blah) and just simply make money for their shareholders. Why would this garner my respect?

tl;dr Nope.

They could be deemed respectable for their efforts in creating an enjoyable game. - it almost sounds as though I'm describing them 5 years ago. I'd guess it's a respect I once had, not have.

I'm not sure if I do or don't, or I'm not taking sides because I don't want to feel like being wrong about something. I think in terms of making a great game they're okay in my book. But a company should be one that is responsible for it's actions. So I guess the question I'm asking myself is if I really consider Jagex a major legitimate company. The simple answer I'd say is they're an unprofessional face, but business is about people; and not just about the ghost of an idea we call business. So no, I don't respect them as a company. But as people, they're individuals who have a lot of communication issues and need to see a relationship therapist. xD

I applaud them for making a game that has kept me, well... On-and-off hooked for almost 8 years. I don't respect them though, too many things they have said and gone back on. I can't respect what I don't trust

I respect a lot of their employers, but I don't respect their current upper management who is seemingly intent on continuing to move the game in the wrong direction despite development continually moving in the right one. (The real updates are actually quite good, but I could do with fewer SoF stuff)

Jagex themselves I can respect however the involvement of IVP has degraded them and forced jagex employees to change their stances...

If, and that's a big if, they bring back ftp high scores they will earn back a little respect from me, although there reasoning for removing ftp high scores in the first place is pitiful.
