Tip.It Times - 12th May 2013


Recommended Posts

Time for a new release of the: >>>Tip.It Times!<<<






Remember, YOU can write an article for the Tip.It Times! You can apply to write full time, or just submit a "one-off" guest article any time you want! Our editors will work with you to ensure that your article is ready for publication. All guest articles can be submitted to @tripsis or any other Editorial Panel member. For more information, including details on how to apply full time, read this forum thread: http://forum.tip.it/topic/209138-how-to-write-for-the-tipit-times/


I'd like to remind people of the rules pertaining to Times threads:


[hide=Read these rules before posting in this thread]

Rampant flame wars have taken control of virtually every week's times discussion topics. The following guidelines must be followed when posting on this topic. Posts that ignore these guidelines will be removed.


1. You are invited and welcome to express like or dislike on articles and a particular author's writing style. It is not acceptable, however, to flame or personally insult an author. Posts that aren't anything but an attack will be removed from the topic.


2. Spelling and grammar errors can be reported to tripsis by PMing her and they will be fixed promptly. It is not necessary to post them on the discussion topic.


3. Off topic posts that do not discuss the content of that week's articles will be removed. This is not the place to discuss the direction of the times, how much you love or hate the times, etc. Off topic posts will be removed.


By keeping within these guidelines, Times discussion topics will mean more for the Panel and Administration than just a place for flame wars. Flame wars do not provide any useful feedback to the Times, which is mainly what we're aiming for with these topics: feedback.


This policy is effective as of now, November 17, 2010. Any posts prior to the creation of this policy may or may not be removed according to the new guidelines.



When replying please make sure to clarify the article you are replying to! Thanks!


If you spot any typos or mistakes in an article then please PM them to @tripsis. :)


Enjoy the articles!

Haha, cheers to that. Been quite the weekend here aswell.


@First: All lies & deceit! As much as I like helping people out my patience has it's limits (DG), through the years i've lost most of my friends list and ever since i've become a rather solo-player. I'm happy with the direction Jagex is taking at the moment, it are harsh times with nerfs apparent but also exciting times, what does the future hold?

If I could interact with my surroundings i've got my fingers crossed for burning the elven lands down. I liked how you ended with those two sentences :)


@second: i'd rather have different realms we can travel to. I disagree completely unless we are able to run 5x times as fast, I like running around and enjoying the scenery but too much is too much. It's already a hassle and as much as I love this game and the way it looks there's nothing special about pinetree forests in comparison with other games & what's coming out in the future.

@TheFloatingPen, "Fantasy vs. Reality, Part II"

I did enjoy this series. I especially appreciated some hope that Jagex's plans would encourage more community imagination. I agree it's a tricky balance, however: if things get overdone, or Jagex's efforts get heavy-handed, the community seems to retreat more than embrace.


Thank you also for integrating the feedback we had on Part I.


@Dracae, "Stretch!"


Hmmm. When I played the game, I took great pleasure in discovering every means of travel I could unlock. But I remember distinctly some attitudes with the idea that once the lodestones came along, there was little need for anything for anything else.


Stretching the map is an interesting idea, but personally, I'd like to see more underwater content beyond Port Khazard, Harmony Island, Braindeath Island, and Dragontooth Island. It came to mind when V O R K said the following:


: i'd rather have different realms we can travel to. I disagree completely unless we are able to run 5x times as fast


No, we don't have anything that can let us run even 2X, but we do have one thing and that's the Karamja monkey greegree that multiplies speed 1.5X. Now, that's only on Ape Atoll, really but I wondered a long while back why that was the only thing that increased speed: why don't mudskipper flippers (from Mogre drops) increase your speed underwater?


I realized at the time that underwater adventures were still an afterthought, and it seems more so post-EOC. Jagex would need something more impressive than the diving gear, the brine sabre, and the brackish blade (more so since the special attack structure was abandoned). I really do think this would be the way to go-- to take content off land and back into the sea. If they did it right, it could generate some real interest with players, I think. I would imagine it could go right along with new Pirate-themed content as it did before.
