Runescape 3 came 20th of november last year, dunno what are they talking about. Glad I can keep playing Rs2 :)

I wonder when jagex actually realizes that updates like this, actually kills the game.


Only one thing sealed the fate of the game, and that was it's beginning. Now stop it with the RS IS GOING TO DIE IT'S KILLING THE GAME etc bullshit please.
Every update is killing the game. Miniclip was the end of Runescape, remember?


Don;t be silly RS died long before the miniclip gen.
RS2 was the death of it, and rune before that and addy mith and black before that and adding more than just lumbridge before that and adding tuorial island was also a death. The only thing that dies more often than runescape (by popular opinion) is Dr Who.

Face the facts, 07 version (which has less shit updates) has more players than `13 version, that tells you something doesn't it?

Man this game must have 9 lives...

Except it doesn't
http://www.misplaced.../2007online.php
Online user data scrapes for both games clearly shows they have been running around 50:50 (with 07 mostly slightly behind) until the past day or so where 07scape has gone much lower.

So how about you face real numerical facts rather than making up BS 'fact' claims.

Is this thread not pointless seeing as these videos are always covered in the 'update teasers' discussion?

If this would have been a normal update I would have agreed. But since this is the general discussion forum and that this is about a whole new version of the game coming out (even though we obviously know very little about it this far), I think having a thread to dicuss this here is motivated. If the mods wouldn't agree though they can move/close this. With this being such a big piece of news though...I think this should stay open.


Agreed. This isn't exactly a new-quest-is-coming BTS. I think a centralized topic for discussing RS3 is necessary.

Why does every discussion have to dissolve into eoc vs 07 =/

Anyway, this looks like good news :) Finally moving away from java is obviously good, and those screenshots look glorious. I like the idea of their new update style slowly progressing the events that started with TWW, exciting stuff

Because the same 1-2 people keep moving it there.

The things I am most excited about is the tear-and-share docking, being able to move windows and bars around could be very interesting. Also the draw distance. I wonder if that means they will add moving graphics for the models on lower floors (so you can see more than just the static scenery below you.

Because fanboy and fangirl like to take every chance they get. So either continue to tell them to [cabbage] off or ignore them.

Back to topic, I just watch this video (yay subtitles) and now I am pumped. However, having RS3 coming in the summer doesn't leave a lot of time considering we are in March. I'm incline to think this is a late summer summer release. I am excited about everything really, but I wonder how bad having only done selective quest effect you now. It's been discussed that your character doen't really move on until you finish every quest beofre TWW so having done it, every quest I do now before TWW is a flashback. Will they just work on the bases that you have to do every quest from TWW or will you still be able to avoid a good part of them. Also I wonder what the first quest would be?

Early summer is feasible IMO. I mean we've known they are working on html5 and subsequently RS3 since before EoC, the bestiary has almost been out for a month and that uses some of the back engine and we've heard for Mod Pips a while back april beta was planned.

As for TWW:
TWW and all its prerequisites (aka basically most quests in rs) are the past and will soon have heads up when you start to say this.
Playing them now is essentially a flashback to things that have already happened.
Ground 0 no quest Rs as it stands now assumes all the events of those quests have happened and will build on them even in noob level quests.

I don't think so. This would be a perfect way to entice people back while they're off school. If this gets delayed until August they'll have lost a lot of potential membership revenue that could have been generated by releasing it in May or June.

I was brand new at the time, so I don't recall - did they call the first conversion 'RS2' in the beta? I highly doubt they'll end up calling it RS3. Likely just Runescape, old school Runescape, and Runescape classic.

Looks awesome though.

I agree with Kaida here. And to be honest, the sooner they release RS3, the happier I will be. These changes seems awesome :)

Oh. I did not realize there was a planned April Beta. I haven't kept up with most news until later in my P2P (as most of it didn't apply to me). As to TWW, I guess it doesn't matter if you've done them or not then. Good thing thing TWW was made an easy requirement to start, it doesn't a good job telling you what you need to know without spoiling too much.

That's true. I didn't think of it that way...but then even as a high school student, I played more than in the summer oddly...

I know they've been working on it for a while, but I'm just worried something will go wrong as usual. Even with the time alredy put into it I don't want it to head down the path EoC did in terms of how it was handled (rush job). I'd be fine with a delay despite it being announce. There are some videogames I've played that I wish developers delayed long.

and thus my $75 at the end of Decemeber paid off.

And thus my choice to save some money for a 3ds instead of buying the gold pack comes back to haunt me. Not that I regret it :twss:

My $75 paid off...but I wished I saved it and the $120+ i spend on Tomb Raider, Revenagance, and Okami HD to buy a 3DS for the FE and soon-to-be Vita Coffin which is the new pokemon. And I just heard Donkey Kong Country Returns will be on the 3DS too. :|

True enough. I always thought that their original plan was to release EoC with HTML5 thus making a much more clear distinction between RS2 and RS3, but they were pushed into releasing EoC early at the corporate level. After all, the release of HD with RuneTek 4/5 didn't make it RS3. While I realize this will be both a graphical and an engine update I think the addition of the new combat system (EoC) at the same time would have made it clearer. Just imagine what EoC could have been with six or seven more months of development and testing.

Whilst I cant watch the video from where I am currently (curse you college for banning youtube here grr), I'm really excited for this update. I think its going to add just so much to the game and hopefully they won't just use it to go "HURR LETS UPDATE ALL THE OLD THINGS AND NOT MAKE ANYTHING NEW FOR 7 MONTHS"

Yeah. A lot of bugs that we got with the release could have been avoided and some better feedback from players. With that said, while I am worried I feel this will come out better than EoC did, since we've known for some time Jagex was planning this. But still with only a month or two of Beta testing? Given what you said eariler then it certainly makes since for a June releae and even make since why they extended the time to buy Gold P2P into beginning Feb. But as far as I know, only one browser can do HTML5. Not much of a hassel to download Crome to play but do we really want Jagex to be a first mover into this.

I'm excited about it, but I'll be crushed if this turns out as bad as how other content was released because of a rush job.

Damn i had finally got a PC that could run Runescape on max settings and now there is a chance with this update that it will no longer be the case.... This does look to be a pretty great update. Touching on some of that quest talk, I myself have like 100 quests to do now just to catch up , so many that i put off doing them and more slowly pile up....
