Jagex Company Status: Active - Proposal to Strike off

Recommended Posts

Please keep this shit out of general discussions. This has absolutely nothing to do with Runescape.

 

This post intrigues me. Why exactly does it matter where this post goes?

'Cause no one ain't got time for pre-apocalyptic ramblings - in real like or in virtual reality for that fact!

 

No one is making this into an apocalyptic anything except maybe the people who don't want to discuss it.

The saying food for thought comes to mind.

I totally forgot about Pliigi/SDCentral until now. Is Stellar Dawn still going to be a thing? (I see their website is still up with "coming soon").

Stellar Dawn was not cancelled. It was 'paused' until better times to leave more resources for Transformers Universe development. I assume once TFU is released and starts bringing in $$$, they will resume work on SD again.

Yeah, I figured the penalties would be much stiffer than that.

Too bad there is no Jagex discussion section and this does not really belong into offtopic either.

As others have said, I doubt that this will really impact Runescape in any kind of way.

 

@ Cheefoo

 

This is the GD section, and this is really the only appropriate board for this kind of discussion.

Please keep this shit out of general discussions. This has absolutely nothing to do with Runescape.

Last I checked, Jagex owned and operated Runescape.

Yea, what does an issue affecting Jagex have to do with RuneScape? I mean, it's not like the two are connected.

 

I doubt that they will shut down Jagex. The investors wouldn't let this cash cow die so easy.

 

Maybe we should have a Jagex General Discussions forum. We seem to get a new thread about this kind of stuff every few days.

I'm honestly not sure there's enough to warrant a separate section of the forum just for Jagex-specific updates. But feel free to start a new topic here and suggest it.

This fine will translate to more micro transaction/lower quality updates passed onto us to compensate for monetary loss

 

EDIT: nvm saw the fine amounts lol

Any one item bought in Solomon's General Store was probably bought enough times to cover the costs for even the 6 month fine...

Can anyone access this thread? I'm trying to figure out if it links to the high level forums or to some kind of private Jmod/Pmod forum:

We used to have a Jagex Section where there was a General Discussion board and a Mechscape/Stellar Dawn board. It was a good idea then, but became dead in a few months.

I'm guessing he didn't actually read the article I wrote, since I say several times that Jagex would never be shut down because the procedure means Companies House doesn't view them as actively doing business, something which is pretty hard to miss for the biggest MMO developer in the country.

So they're three months late as it is, and they're being given another three months to pay with no further financial penalties? Can I get that same deal on my bills? :lol:

 

Still, it's good to see that the size or popularity of a company has no bearing on enforcement of the rules. :thumbup:

Jagex claims 'most successful year' despite late financial report.

RuneScape developer insists it will file its accounts soon as Companies House makes proposal to strike them off.

 

cba posting the whole thing, here's the link:

The report's finally out...3 months+ late.

 

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B5iRY6C8tGKLcGhlblVoN1hkbUE/edit

 

They had bad numbers indeed. From a basic skim, they had a 9.5 million pound loss for the year. They still have about 10 million pounds of funds left.

 

They made a point of including a seperate, not required pstt of the report basically saying how successful they were until March of the year (6mil pound profit) but for the whole year still managed to come out 9.5 mil in the red. I don't actually remember what happened around mar 2011...

 

The people at stellar dawn central will probably read a lot more deeper into everything and write their analysis.

The way I read page 4 is that they had a loss of 9.9M in a 9 month window, but still had a fiscal year end profit of 6.7M.

 

I do look forward to SDC's analysis since they're always so good at plucking the right info and graphing it.

The fiscal year ended Mar, so the 9 months is between Mar and Dec..that's the 9.5 mil pound loss. So however you look at it, Jagex was in the red that year.

 

Someone needs to dig up exactly what happened Mar-Dec 2011

No idea if this is related but bot nuke was released in late 2011, they were also chasing lots of websites with lawsuits, these websites offered RWT/botting.

I think reading it at a skim as a lose is flawed. I mean granted PR etc but we know they invested lots in some big lawsuits past year or so and Jmods have mentioned that they have been reinvesting most of the profits to expand and start new ventures.

 

We really need more account knowledgeable folk to pick through and determine what money went where to see if the existing businesses turned a profit within themselves; opposed to the overall picture being a loss which could be due to investment.
