In Topic: Why this year hasn't been so bad

edit: you should add the new 'box sets' of vials, eye of newts, raw bird meats, ect. to your list.

...which had to be put in thanks to their asinine personal shops and the G.E.'s tight controls.

In Topic: 09-Nov-2009 - ChampionsÂ’ Challenge Update and Hairstyles

The patch notes are nice, but the update itself is lousy.

It is nice that those who've obtained champions' scrolls are rewarded, but the entire minigame is... flawed. Hopefully, they've increased the drop rate of champions' scrolls, but everything bar the imp is worthless- the slayer and hp exp you get is negligible.

If this was Wednesday/Thursday, you'd have a point.

They announced that this week would not have an update.

None of this even related to the post of mine you quoted, buuuut...

Superior availability is one of Jagex's accomplishments over other games/companies.

Yes, the poll was stacked, we're over that now. I didn't even vote, I'm glad they got it, but I do know it probably would have gone the other way.

FInally, this...

Finally, as I've pointed out in the past, Jagex itself is not well liked. Runescapers have this stereotype in mind where other gamers point and laugh at the game merely because of it's graphics. Wrong. They laugh at it because of Jagex's abysmal customer service. They mock it because of the free trade updates. They find it horrible because of the never ending grinding. And they abhor it because of the community.

Is a re-statement of what you already said.

Please answer my post, you quoted it, and your post was at first irrelevant and at last a re-statement:

Please explain to me why RS or RSers getting laughed at by, say, WoWers should matter at all.

Keep in mind the points I noted... in the post you quoted...

Saying why RS/Jagex is mocked is not an answer, it's a re-statement (especially since many of those reasons have completely reasonabel explanations).

Never crossed my mind, by the way.

Exaggeratted (never ending), and the same in many, many, MANY other MMO's.

@fat klutz

First off most of your reasons have are either explainable (bad graphics (I don't even care about graphics) are because Jagex has enabled RS to be playable on truly ancient machines in order to increase number of possible customers; it's one of their leading philosophies), exaggerated (impossible to hold a conversation, really?), universal (idiots are only on RS?), and/or false/ill-informed (ever even done some of the not-novice quests? Try MEP2, Summer's End, ETC then tell me what a quest basically is in RS).

Anything else is called a CON of playing RS. RS also has PROS over other games, like how other games have PROS of playing it. There's no such thing as a perfect game, and even if it was "perfect" for some person or group, it wouldn't be perfect for many other people.

Here's what it boils down to: You believe Jagex are great game designers and that they deserve this award. I believe that as successful as they are, they do not deserve this award.

That's not gonna change and nothing new is going to brought to the table. Anything I've said you've poo-pooed and followed up with why does it matter? So I've tried to restate it in a way that it makes sense.

And I'm gonna try one last time:

Here's why other gamers opinion matters: cause this is an award given by gamers to game producing corporations based on votes. When those who are not really gamers, i.e. too young or play one or two games, vote enough to swing the contest, they get upset. That's one of the complaints levied against the Wii: it attracts too many nongamers. Most of Runescape's player base aren't gamers. This would be like the American people not liking a law that foreigners voted into place, using the American system, and then being told that their opinion does not matter.

Edit: You're also demanding evidence and arguments without giving any of your own. Instead of telling us that complaints about Runescape are invalidated, why not tell us how?

One word: poll tax.

That's going in the siggy :P

Wow... just... wow. Can't believe I missed it. Ah well. I'll leave it up as a monument to my own failings, for none are perfect.
