Theyve been launching around lunch time on Mondays recently. So I would guess around 10-12 hours assuming release is tomorrow?

I honestly think that some of the way you guys think is ridiculously stupid, you are all judging something that none of you know how will turn out! Legacy mode was made as a choice, which is why we can flick it on and off. ITS NOT JAGEX GOING BACK ON OLD DRAWINGS! Its them listening to what they have been told FROM YOU GUYS! They can't be expected to make good updates if you guys say yes then as soon as they brought it out you all whinge and cry? Its been brought out pretty fast because there would've been alot of devlopers on it i'd assume and it's something that has pre-existed so its not too hard to tweak and change for the current live game, they know what they are doing.
I would love to see you guys try and code runescape like jagex does, and then have a bunch of idiots talk down on something you worked pree' hard for.  I personally think its a great update because it gives us choice and variety, I myself love EOC but think legacy mode is a great idea.
 
Its as simple as if you don't like it, don't put it down. Give players who are wiling to play legacy mode a chance to play without negative opinions in the back of there mind, and don't assume things when you havn't seen it. No one knows how legacy mode will change the live game so don't go on ranting about it being all pre-hype and it'll die off and become dead content in a few weeks like your from the future or something?
 
Honestly this thread actually annoyed the crap out of me reading your comments.


1) It is Jagex going back on 'old drawings' - they are emulating old combat
2) We do 'know how it will turn out' we have a beta server and have plenty of experience with Jagex, Runescape, gaming and how these things go. (Return of pking anyone?). Sure we may not be psychic and know with 100% certainty, but we've been round this merry-go-round many times already to see how things go. The pk revival fails because people magically lose interest when the free gear of beta servers is gone, the desire to top end pvm which can't be done in legacy weeds out most serious combatants from using lesser modes and the majority of the rest of the flock ends up following, at least roughly, the metagame advice of how to achieve best dps.
3) No-one has said yes then changed their mind - not here anyway. Everyone has pretty much stuck to their guns opinion wise on legacy from the moment it was first suggested to now.
4) Just because we don't think it do well does not mean we are not entitled to air our opinions, just like you are are allowed to be positive about it. There is no way we should just essentially shut up and NOT give our opinions as you suggest just because we happen to disagree with you. That's utterly stupid and rude to suggest, especially in the context of an update that only even get conceived thanks to NEGATIVE opinions being aired about eoc.

It's a shame that with Legacy mode we go back to the old animations and stances. I love the new models and fighting emotes and moves I just want simple old combat back hehe.

Once more, "legacy mode" is

- auto attacks

- old combat animations

- old style interface

 

If you just want old style combat, use momentum. Exact same thing. It is auto attacks.

But silly lifepoints and hits. We aren't able to pick and choose which legacy elements we want. It's either/or. :(
