Nice, well written articles.

 

I myself have not volunteered to write an article about this, since beyond my higher regard of the average RS player then the numbers by AJgex suggest I should have i don't actually have a fully formed opinion.  The Subject is too complicated. Reading the articles did help a bit.

 

Like the first I do not believe at all this will stop goldsellers.. and since I do not believe Jagex is ran by idiots they know that.

I also do not believe Jagex numbers, not only the one disproven by the author, but the others. No way does 40+ % of players buy gold. I do not believe Jagex can actually know the true number that exactly either. If they could actually track these things they should have taken the iligal money bought + a fine. That would quickly make goldselling undoable, without bannign the players and losing revenue.

An other if.. if I am wrong and over 40% of players did buy gold, then there is something else seriously wrong: that means Jagex can NOT detect jack doo doo.. because  that big a part of the RS populous would not take a risk with their account.  Maybe I am naive, also because I make my feelings about cheating quite clear.. I might not get told about it much..

Whatever the case.. it is a mess!

Almost as big as the mess of words I am making rambling on here..

 

Where I do not believe the problem addressed by the second article will likely become as urgent as written there, I do totally agree Jagex is borrowing against the future..again.. I must admit, I had not thought of that part yet, but it makes sense.  And yes, its is 'again' they already sold a load of long term subscriptions to many of us, including  me that were payed in advance.  It is logical they need money to operate, but I keep having this nagging thought in the back of my mind that this is more about paying large dividends to investors then about improving and running the game.  Not something unprecedented in modern business, is it?

 

Like several of my earlier articles have claimed I believe this game of ours is not altogether healthy, since it is topheavy, lacking a big enough influx of new players. These kinds of developments and drawing a lot of money out of the game will not help!

The worst part about it is they put the game on the Grand Exchange, home of the Ponzi scheme and short-sellers galore.


99 dungeoneering achieved, thanks to everyone that celebrated with me!

Ts_Stormrage and sees_all1, your articles this time get two thumbs up from me. :thumbsup:

 

Jagex has definitely taken a shotgun to their foot, and they haven't felt the pain from it yet. :twss:
