Also following Old School when it comes to boss pets too :P.

Am i the only one who has pretty much dismissed or let another update overshadow the october line-up in anticipation for the elf city batch 2? I have been clamoring over it since the release of batch 1. Araxxor and the elf city have been the only updates of recent that ive been ansy about.

Yea pretty much, but I guess it's because they're the only properly meaty pieces of content we've had the last few months. Gone are the days where In an average month youd get a couple of quests, a minigame and maybe a new D&D. Currently if we get one large standalone piece of content a month that keeps you entertained for longer than an hour it's a rare thing.   It's awesome that content like the city and arraxor can keep you entertained for many, many weeks, but its sad thats so uncommon now days.

 

Can't wait for city part 2!

Ports was another one of those updates. Oddly enough it is also relatively shallow.

Maybe I'm not most people, but I'm OK with one groundbreaking update every few months with some filler/less groundbreaking stuff in between. The game is in such a mature state for an MMO as it is.

One major update every 3 months is a fair rate I'd say.

 

It's been a pretty decent year, by that standard.

Subpar for months, though.

Especially after their claims to bring us more quests.

Instead we get half stripped "quests" for the sake of finishing a quest series.

In all honesty, I'd be very much ok with seasonal updates rather than monthly or weekly ones...

It would go a long way in reducing rushed disasters such as Rise of the Red Axe, would see more fully developped skills instead of shells to be later filled in, and you're guaranteed to have at least one jewel of an update like a complete City of the Elves...

It would reduce the regular updates to mere maintainance and the odd Ninja fix.

The only thing they need to permanently have is a playable Beta for everyone (including F2P-ers, since Beta's are meant to be experimented with beyond breaking point) that, like the EoC-Beta, can allow you to import an account without having it affect your main on the actual servers...

Membership revenue, however, would drop by two-thirds since a lot of people will just buy a months of membership when the update comes out, and cancel it for the following two...

On the plus side, the crybabies who can't handle a lot of changes (I'm looking at you 07&Legacy-lovers) get to swallow one pill every three months, rather than 4 a month...

Oh boy, I can't wait to see the shitstorm on the RSOF that's going to happen when Wildy Wyrms are released.

It's gonna be the same self-entitled whining that happened with Ice Strykes and the Fire Cape.

And a fair few of the updates we did get had some pretty unforgivable flaws... like the shards for the new achievement capes holding your bank/inventory spaces hostage until you can finish them, without the option to just toggle them off.

Im intrigued... no one has mentioned it so i will. If both the wildy wyrm update and ports update for weapons both go live we will have a lot of t85 items coming in. We will see a t85 mage 2h and melee mh from the wyrm. That presumably means we have a t85 mage mh/oh, melee 2h or oh and maybe even a ranged 2h.

The quests were pretty lacklustre, I'd say. FOTG and OOAK were awesome, but that's only two quests and they were early in the year. Since then there's been literally no follow up of any kind. We are only getting Zamorakian Heist (a follow-up to WE1!) in a few months from now. Their rate of quests and following up has gone majorly down, and it's somewhat disappointing. I mean Zaros has returned since March, and it's almost the end of the year, and there's been no follow-up of any sort? Lame. No Elder God Quest (which won the PTTP poll) either.

Didn't they say they were aiming for 10 quests this year?

Elder God quest is in dev though. As long as Raven can keep Deg in line it should be good.

Oh that. It wasn't a bad quest, but far too short of the expectations (and the hype that Jagex themselves put around it. They claimed it would be the 200th quest and the biggest and hardest quest to date - it wasn't anything of the sort, and I guess they ended up not meeting their quest target, hence why they decided to put it out way before number 200).

Maybe. They were supposed to release that Armadyl homeland quest around this time of last year, and a World Gate quest as well - both were canned. In any case, Elder God Quest doesn't seem to be coming out this year (it wasn't in the preview stream which mentioned the updates we could be expecting for the rest of this year).

In the RuneFest streams they mentioned this year, and I know Deg and Raven are actually developing it atm (well, Raven has this week off, but they are developing it now.) Can't guarantee it will be this year, delays suck but they happen. However it is planned for this year.

 

Sucks that Rite of Passage hasn't been made yet. It, like many updates, got screwed over when they decided on PttP polls. But I'm hoping with that now in place, and RuneFest seeming a lot more realistic, instead of saying everything under the sun they'd love to do, that less updates get canned or sidelined.

I really despise the idea behind "church of you." I think that they should give you notariety in various perks as you complete quests. They should also use the champions, heros and legends guild as hubs for these perks.

Agreed. Jagex have been releasing way fewer quests than they used to the last 2 years, which simply sucks. I believe that one of the strongest points of this game is its deep and amazing storyline. With fewer quests released this storyline progresses slower. And this causes RuneScape to miss out on the chance of expanding this strong point further. This is especially sad when you remember that we have just progressed into a new Age where there's so much interesting new storyline content to explore. I mean, just exploring the returned Gods' plans for what they wish to do now once they are back could probably take up like at least 10+ quests. And they don't all have to resolve around lore exploring of course. They could include combat, new skill unlocks (coupled with divination etc) and other perks that could be attractive to skillers, killer and everything between.

 

Certainly there needs to be a balance between updates. But I think most RS players agrees on that this low pace of the release of quests needs to be upped. Unless we get a quests' explosion in November and December we will have had another year of 6 (maybe 7) quests. To compare; We got 9 quests during 2012 and 2011.
