I see only one "highly dramatised conclusion" about the milking and death of RS. Everything else he said (bar [bleep]ing about audio) were fairly reasonable conclusions to make.

We can barely make out what they're saying. The audio complaints are "reasonable".


It seems like he was trying to say they were only building up their tech and deliberately trying to kill Runescape to move onto their next game. That seems pretty ridiculous to me. But I could have read that wrong, in which case I hope Highlanders clarifies :)

Oh, he certainly did say that.


No I said that what it sounds like, not that it was so. If the game is 100% profiting from MT then he should be able to say it plainly. Him correcting himself to say that the studio and tech is where the money goes is suspicious and leaves the door open for all sorts of conclusions.

I don't think the audio is THAT bad, yes the mics were turned down too low at the very start but like a couple of minutes in they noticed and cranked em up, with youtube and my laptop set to max volume I could easily hear 90% of the video and it was just the first couple of minutes which I could hear when I strained (or at least enough to fathom what was being said). To me it just feels like people are watching like a minute saying can't hear it and giving up because if you can't hear after they turned the mics up a few minutes in then you got issues!

Although they may have increased the volume after the first few minutes, I still had a difficult time following them. Perhaps my speakers are not as loud as others, though.

He's saying that the funds are being rolled into different departments, just like they said they rolled membership fees for botting accounts back into the anti-cheating departments. It's not profit if they're still covering other costs. It still has the potential to be largely profit (not 100% because they still have to pay the mindblowingly high 4 devs, plus any animators/coders/etc who work on SoF stuff) but it's not being used for that at this time.

It sounds pretty reasonable to me though it does tick me off they won't say that in plain english.

Clougie and Paul M were fine the whole time. I had to max my volume to hear MMG - his mic was bad. But then my ears were blown off when the other two spoke. I don't kill my eardrums with earbuds like most people my age do/did, so this was really irritating to me :P

"90% of players utilise sof" I wonder why... Possibly something to do with fact it wont bugger off until you do.

Since we are semi-forced to spin to get rid of the spam, advertise in there might just be a good idea! - They like suggesting. Remove spam elsewhere..

End of the day I aint that impressed by the q/a as I still have to deal with the things that are negatively effecting the game/my gameplay.

A minor example. I dont have an actual photo of some of the stuff so I just quickly put this together. Its alot like the real thing for when I log in nowadays.

Honestly, that's exactly what I did. If I watch a video, I'm not going to sit there straining to try and hear what's being said for more than a minute or so before turning it off. This is why you do sound checks before the broadcast, not during.

Besides, I knew the rest of you would fill me in. I got the highlights without all the filler. ;)

Eh, I'll take their word for it ever since that guy who was posting the reminder for the end of the alchemy amulet promotion was mysteriously silenced a minute after the post, and it was removed with no trace left over.

I'm assuming someone posted a thread reminding people of the promotion and the thread got hidden, but I have no more information than you.
