@ first article:

Instead, their new policies are hidden from view, much like a stain on a person's undergarments.


Okay, that was witty.

Jagex's position on fair gameplay has grown soft over the last few years. I noticed this, too, awhile back. Morals can change quickly when you insert money into the equation.

GoT was nominated for 13 Emmys, and everybody seems to think the same as I do: Peter Dinklage deserves to win. I said I was excited to see how they portrayed Tyrion, and I was not disappointed.

Has anybody started reading A Dance with Dragons yet? It will be a while before I can get around to it. If Martin can make us wait five years, then he can wait on me for a few months.

My response was about the article, but since you take it personally I'll make my final ones about my perception of you. Your immature comments are indicative of the problems that apparently still persist on the Times staff. In fact, they seem to be getting worse. I'll take care to avoid reading anymore articles from you. Thank you.

I think the fact that it's called the Times in the first place does give people the impression that it's meant to be a news source. - after all that's normally a name used for newspapers....

...In the last couple of years the articles seem to have shifted more to soapbox than informative...

Here's a quote from another Times article:

...It is almost a slap in the face each time updates of this manner come about. Makes you wonder if they worship the all mighty dollar more than they appreciate the people that helped them build this Mega-Community by remaining loyal through thick and thin...

That quote came from an article almost six years ago, from the second Times article written. The Times has always been an editorial piece.


To conclude, I agree with your post but think that, in some cases, people could overcome what you say by applying common sense and by responding more calmly from time to time.

Comparing an update to the stench of fecal matter will not spark a thought-provoking discussion. Your readers will find it difficult to take you seriously when you choose vulgar metaphors to express your contempt. How can your readers--even someone like me who may share similar opinions--view this as anything other than a rage rant.

Personally, I'm not thrilled about the update either. I think most people see right through it, but it's not like Jagex is being sneaky when they call it a loyalty program. As of now, I see it mostly as a junk update, unnecessary to the game other than for pure promotional. However, I feel the article didn't provide enough evidence to back up its tone. Other promo events like Bonus XP weekends have a far greater impact on the game than MLP. You think MLP will bring rivers of blood? Were you not around when the anti-RWT updates were implemented?

You also failed to convince me that MLP has a detrimental effect on F2P. MLP doesn't force people into membership any more than Gnomecopters. Yes, Jagex would like F2P players to eventually become members. I can't fault them for it. Some people may purchase membership for MLP, but hopefully they will stay for the same reasons I became a member. For the game itself.

Looks less like Runescape. Looking more like Zynga every day.
