First post? ALRIGHT!

I thought the first article on the BETA was a good evaluation and I shared many of the same feelings. I really wish Jagex would let more people in sooner.

The second article about the lost magic of Runescape really hit the nail on the head. I think Runescape has really evolved and gone in a different direction, a direction that is apparently necessary, but in no way appeals to me. As much as I love Runescape, I will never start a new character, it just wouldn't be the same.

Shouldn't Freedom negate the overpowered stun abilities? 15 second stun-breaker for 15 second stuns. Unless there are stuns that are not on a shared cooldown, Freedom should make any stun abilities just minor nuissances.

I read the first two topics, and both of them were great.

About the combat BETA one: I too think it's a bit sad that the BETA isn't used that much. I believe that perhaps the reason to this is the first couple of hours problems. It really was impossible to play for me to play right after the release, and many people like me had waited for a long time to log in and test it. It's also a bit sad with all this duping going on within the BETA. This is the combat BETA, not the rare-duping BETA.

About the magic article: Certainly the old tutorial island and the old start of RS was good. But this new Troll Warzone start is in my opinion much better. If it costs some of the old "magic", well, then that is a price that I can be fine with.

Have been beta - ing quite a lot.

Predominantly negative feedback to give, however - i.e. probably about the 90% mark.

I don't PVP but even the little experience of Castle Wars I had was less enjoyable than I find it now.

Tutorial Island made people learn something. Now everything is just overdirected and micromanaged nonsense. Diving into the unknown is a much more educational adventure than never wandering off the beaten path.

The beta will desperately need a tutorial for all the changes in numbers and combat systems. Too much has changed and it doesn't have direct correlations (difference between +str bonus and +crit % bonus for example) or how to navigate the interfaces properly.. (Hoping a bunch of this is simplified and fixed but...)

Yet, why do I feel as if I would prefer my own, grueling experience over the new one?

Well played. :thumbsup:

Wait, isn't the current tutorial exactly the same as the one we have now? :mellow:
