So why is everyone mad? Because you couldn't get your raw materials fast enough?


This is the RuneScape community. If Jagex announces a bonus experience weekend, everyone complains. If Jagex doesn't announce a bonus experience weekend, everyone complains.

How dare they give away free XP. [bleep]ing [wagon].. Wait, what are we complaining about?

So for anyone keeping score:
1: Complain about bonus exp weekends.
2: Complain when bonus exp weekends are replaced with promotions like the mad may necklace and promissory note.
3: Complain when they announce a bonus exp weekend that's also available to F2P'ers.


This exactly. I hate to say this, but to everyone complaining:
just [bleep]ing quit if you are complaining about something like this, because you are insatiable.

Dammit Jagex, this is not the way to attract and keep players long-term members. If anything, this is making the loyal players fed up with the constant bull getting thrown as us, and only attracting short-term players unlikely to stay for the long haul.


How their updates for last few months appear:

SOF SOF Solomon SOF Solomon *Lie about how much we care about the game* SOF Solomon SOF *Goes back on their word, harming game and angering players* SOF SOF Solomon SOF.

So they do something different and even offer free players something, and you don't have to do microtransactions to do it.

And you still complain.

I owe you one slap.

I didn't complain about them removing it. Stop generalizing.

Thus, bonus experience weekends are not new? Giving free players something this time is nice, but it is not difficult to see how these do more harm than good.

If you don't believe it is harming the game, at least see that events like this convince a minority to players to stay on for ridiculous hours to try gain the most benefit out of the 48 hours. Its not healthy.

And that last part is bad how? They can play however they want to play. Hell, get bloodclots for all I care. I probably won't even be on this weekend. Didn't even participate in the last 2.

People already play ridiculous amounts of time to achieve their goals, BXW does nothing but mess up prices.

You are 100% correct. They should only make the game playable for a total of 3 hours a day and the accounts be locked the other 21. Because having them available 24 hours convinces people to play as much as they can.

Ok, it seems like people like to misinterpret. And hyperbole.

I have no problem with people playing long hours. Hell, I have played 6+ hour days myself. But that doesn't mean Jagex should actively encourage you to play a full 48 hours non-stop to try get all the benefit from the weekend.

Bad analogy: I also have no problem with people smoking, but I don't believe we should have TV ads which encourage it.

Nowhere do I see them actively encouraging long playing hours. Can you point me to a direct quote please. They make offers available for the weekend so as to make them available to all players (across the world, rather than isolating those outside of the 'ideal timezones'). As for your "bad" analogy, I'll let it side, give how absurd (nearly comedic) it is.

*Points to main post*

Is it really that hard to see? They are offering great rewards for those who are on during these hours. This encourages some to play extensively to reap the rewards only available during these hours. Even if it was not their intention, even if they don't actually say the words, it still encourages this type of play.


Choose to read it how you wish to, if you enjoy these weekends and do not see any negatives then so be it. It's the internet, I am not going to change your mind, nor will you change mine about how events like this do more harm than good.

How could they possibly make limited time events where people wouldn't try to capitalize on the benefit offered? Bonus XP Year? This is not Jagex cramming an incentive into a puny time-slot so they can brainwash us into playing for long hours, these are players who's priorities are so far gone that they'd actually stay up 48 hours straight for extra xp.
