Some of the points said by Jagex (gonna keep updating this)

- No big updates this year is partly the fault of the Evolution of Combat
- The XP lamps have been checked very carefully, they are so rare that they don't really give any big advantage
- The big advertisement of Squeal and Solomon has been too much, so they are trying to tone it down
- The squeal and Solomon don't take much development resources
- IVP hasn't really affected the amount of microtransactions, and microtransactions have been discussed for about four years in Jagex.
- They are trying to advertise more players to RuneScape
- Runefest 2012 is NOT going to happen, because they want to focus on game content. Hopefully in 2013.
- Squeal money is going to RuneScape, not transformers.
- RuneScape 3 mentioned!
- RuneScape was in terminal decline from 2007 to 2010, 2011 was the first year they managed to stop the decline.
- 80-90% of people are using the Squeal of Fortune.
- Squeal of Neptune was the most used promotion of Squeal.
- Solomon will not have game-enhancing items.
- Squeal won't have exclusive high gear items
- Jagex does think it's wrong that you have to pay extra money besides membership fees to get Solomon stuff, so they are trying to find new ways to give loyal members the items or Runecoins.
- Updates coming further along the way will be teased about later.
- Jagex doesn't want to raise membership price anymore and doesn't want to have immersion breaking ads in-game
- Horses/mounts are not coming any time soon, if ever.

What irritates me is that they used Youtube for this. I know they've done more live Q&As prior to this one, but I would like to see the next on justintv or something. Chatting during the live Q&A is so much fun...

EDIT: Yo jagex staff who are reading this, give MMG a light slap and tell him to be a bit louder please!

I'm guessing RS3 is the move to HTML5?

It might. I think it might be that + the mobile platform.

They said it was the first time they've even brought it up, so I doubt it.

Did I hear them say "...terminal game in 2007, 8, 9,...10...?"
"Fight for what you believe in, and believe in what you're fighting for." Can games be art?

They said it was the first time they mentioned RS3 as the name. Remember that originally RS2 was just 3D avatars in the RSC world but was developed further into RS2.

Maybe now all the SoF and Solomon haters will stop whining. It's quite obvious micro transactions were introduced for a reason.

Like I said before in another thread, I doubt RS would still even be receiving regular content updates if they weren't generating different forms of income other than membership fees.

They are considering adding limited items (summer items, katana etc) to Solomons store once promotion period is over.

I had to AirPlay mirror from iPad to TV just to get it at a volume I could hear.

So far really ineterestnig, they summed up pretty much everything i thought was happening behind the scenes, ie micro transactions take low resources, they wouldn«'t be adding exp or gold to the store (even though I still think they should sell pendants there), item to gold trasaction was bad management, etc.

The thing that got me was Squeal of Neptune as the example of SoF being really successful for cosmetics and not for gp/xp.
Yeah cause everybody bought spins to get the super attractive Fish Mask, not because it's set to be a discontinued item that has the potential to be worth a good 20m+ in a few years. It is literally like the worst fact to pull out as 'proof' people buy it for cosmetics that the best selling period was the one limited time promotion that had the potential to pay out millions of gp if you can wait and sit on the item.

Also about no big updates it was good to hear that they have been a lot more depth into each update and that (alongside EoC) is what has held stuff up, but that in the next few months we should start to see the pay off of these big things coming. Plus was nice to hear that they are going to try and talk a bit more about things more than a month ahead so we can see what is coming up more.

- The XP lamps have been checked very carefully, they are so rare that they don't really give any big advantage

And that, kids, is what we call denial.

"I can't take my credit card and effectively buy XP."
God that was painful to watch. Watching MMG talk about micro-transactions was just like watching Mark Zuckerberg talk about privacy.

Very true.
Since around July I have been keeping my stat gains in my sig.
Agility, Construction and Prayer are entirely from SoF.
Summoning is mostly for SoF with added trolls, promissary note and fealty xp.
Prior to July I got like 85ish prayer to 90 from mostly SoF as well.

I mean it IS nice to see them being more open and honest about the microtransaction stuff; but that one fact is such bs. Also it was the interesting backpedal on the news post where they did say 90% support SoF and they back-pedalled it to 90% utilise. Which is what we all figure out in the first place because its blindingly obvious that if you log on and a button flashes in ur face going amg free stoof click me click me click me you are going to do it.
