Some people get Araxxor pets in 1-2 kills, others are at nearly 2,000 and still don't have it. (That's a true story by the way). Basically, the game does not reward effort, skill or persistence whatsoever. Some things in life are out of our control, and based purely on luck, and lotteries do exist in real life. However, in RS basically everything of consequence is RNG based. As even RS Wikia acknowledges, under the current drop system, you can kill a monster forever and still not be guaranteed the drop. Take PVM for instance. The Vitalis pet (one of rarest in the game), there are people with minimal knowledge and experience at Rago who have it after a handful of kills, and people with thousands of kills that don't. In what world does that make sense? You'd think the most skilled and experience and dedicated boss hunter deserves the best prizes, not some lucky inexperienced scrub, but not according to Jagex! I don't mind some things being guaranteed (say such as Treasure Trails), but everything being RNG-ed is upsetting.
Now I have fared better than most, I have gotten my share of God Wars drops when they were worth tons, same with Nex drops when they were worth billions or hundreds of millions, same with Rago, Rots, and Araxxor. But there are times where it's frustrating. So this isn't necessarily the stereotypical rant about how I never get drops and how I am poor (I am not - I don't have no dicer bank, but I am according to Jagex wealthier than the overwhelming vast majority of players ). It makes no sense.
Jagex has a pathological obsession with RNG. I have thought as of late I should suggest to them that they should have a RNG-based pay system. Regardless of what any particular J-Mod does, how much skill it takes or effort or time, they will all have to draw out of a raffle that will be completely independent of those factors and based purely on luck. What's that Chris L? You made 4 high level bosses in 2013? Sorry, but your raffle only suggests you deserve a minimum wage salary for that year - better luck next time. Would have those [bleep]ers singing a new tune in no time about the righteousness of RNG.
