Buying max level in WoW works because the leveling process is meant to teach you how to play your character and develop the muscle memory for your key binds. While in RS the grind literally is the game.

 

Also as a general rule. if your offering to sell auto-completion of the content that makes up 99% of your game thats a clear indication that your gameplay is shit.

Was an email poll according to those who received it.


 
I got it and there was no way to check if it was a scam (to get details about my account to hack it) or legit, except for believing the e-mail address was real, which can be changed to anything a user wants you to believe it is. Guess I know it is legit now so I can participate in it.

If you are uncertain that a link is legit, right click the link, select 'Copy link address' and paste it into Notepad so you can examine its destination. It should always be something like 'secure(dot)runescape(dot)com' or something.runescape.com. Watch out for tricks like 'secure(dot)runescape(dot)thisisaphishingsite.com' though. You can also always paste the URL into a scan on VirusTotal or similar site to have it scan it for you. If it's the real site it should show a positive rating, and if not it will probably flag a couple scanners. This way you can make sure to stay safe :).

Except that they didn't host the survey but that it was hosted by surveymonkey :P As surveymonkey is legit and you cannot view who made the survey there is no way to check if it is legit.

Umm, and Surverymonkey is handling your RuneScape login credentials? Or it just generates a unique link to everyone they sent the survey to?

They'd have stolen Mod Balance's account as well.

Was an email poll according to those who received it.

inb4 sent only to people who buy spins/bonds/coins

 

the great thing about polls done by for profit businesses is that they can be used to justify anything if conducted "properly'

Hey, it's probably an improvement over flat-out making up the results, right?

 

Right?

The ONLY advantage I see to this is I could actually get my wife to play with me as we'd be on relatively even footing. She's played several times on and off over the years but no where near the consistent playtime of my character I've had since classic. 

 

But like others said, it would also take away a large portion of the game.

Also, look at the OP image - these are questions 79 and 80 (!) on a survey. I don't know about you guys, but I can't systematically and accurately rate more than about 10 or 15 items on a scale of not very likely to likely before I get tired and just start hitting random numbers. If people are barely paying attention by the time that they arrive at that point...

It's not only "for profits" that use and abuse data that is less than credible, but your point is not lost. My recent poll of Runescape players found that 99% of Runescape Players are playing Runescape ergo Runescape is most popular game of all time.


Srs.

Jesus Christ, this is beyond sad. Even worse than these revealing survey questions themselves, is Mod Balance's pathetic attempts to backpedal and reassure players this kind of scheme isn't in the future plans for the game.

 

If I can ever be bothered to fly across the ocean and attend RuneFest, I'll be sure to pop that kid in the mouth.

Also I didn't get that question because I said taht I don't want to buy anything related to runecoins in the future. The reason is that I am against these things, so yeah if you ask the people who might buy things like that if they want to buy them, and not ask the people totally against the idea itself you "might" get more results favouring your question... -.-
