EOC removed

#5521009 29 September 2014 - Patch Week & Pure resets

Posted by Zerker_Jane on 29 September 2014 - 02:55 PM


Worst update since EOC.

I'm going to guess you're not pleased about pure resets?





But only because Jagex is desperately focused on trying to lure players who don't want to come back, back. It's getting embarrassing.

Good riddance.

Or for Jagex's declining playerbase? :o


Some people liked where runescape was going before Jagex killed it.

Hardly demanding the whole factory by just asking if you can purchase the cookie you like without buying a cookie you do not like.

I guess I wasn't clear. So, 2007scapers like you demand to be able to only play 2007scape at no extra charge (e.g., $5 on top of "RealScape"). Jagex does something "nice" (as far as a company can be nice), and yet you still demand more than what they gave you after they already said "It'll be this way."

So basically, you want it YOUR way. So your vote should be tossed out since you don't want to support the costs of aging software. Not only do Jagex have to ensure backwards compatibility with all future communication system (so 2007scape is still integrated into RuneScape and runs properly), they need to actively fix all the bugs they've already fixed that have damaging and game breaking issues. E.g., dueling arena, player-owned houses, quests, etc. Regardless of what YOU think, this costs MORE money than not supporting 2007scape.

To go back to the cookie factory analogy, it would be like an old cookie recipe having to be integrated with the current cookie making process. The cookie company goes "yes, we'll let you have it for more if there's not enough interest." You know why? Because it costs MORE to process these cookies. Similarly, if there is enough interest in this old cookie that they could integrate it into the current cookie making process and still make more money, they will.

I'm not asking for 07 to be free. I'm asking for it to be a separate fee. I'm not going to pay for EOC on top of 07 when I'm never going to play EOC.

Since you still don't seem to understand what that means, if they make 2007scape a separate fee they will be getting money from me that they would NOT be getting with just EOC. Ergo they are making money FOR the development of 2007. I reiterate, I'm not asking for 2007scape to be free. Once more, I'm not asking for 2007scape to be free. They will be making money from 2007scape by making it a separate fee that they will NOT make by forcing people to buy EOC when they do not want to.

Do you understand? Perhaps not. I'm not asking for 2007scape to be free. Did it sink in that time? I'm asking for there to be a separate fee for 2007scape, a separate fee for EOCscape, and you pay BOTH fees if you want to play BOTH. I'm not asking for 2007scape to be free. I'm not asking for 2007scape to be free.

No. You should have voted only if you were willing to pay even the most extreme additional cost at 50k votes or whatever it was. Nobody should have voted without being willing to live with whatever outcome the final vote was.

It's like signing a contract and not reading the fine print then attempting to sue the contractors because you didn't read it properly.

Whilst a clean slate economy is an exciting thing to experience, do people not realise that said economy is eventually just going to culminate in the exact same thing that currently exists in the main game?

No it's like signing a contract that doesn't bind you at all, not liking how greedy the contractors become and just walking away. I'm not going to be suing Jagex over this they just won't get my irl gp, for 2007scape or EOCscape. They lose.

OK. Let's agree to disagree. I think history shows that relaunches like RS07 enjoy very successful honeymoon periods followed by very rapid decline as the nostalgia starts to wear off, until it eventually reaches its end point, serving a very small, niche portion of the gaming community.

We'll see in three months. :)

I doubt I'm alone in this but I don't play 2007scape for the nostalgia, I play it because I like Runescape and don't like EOC. The assumption people in your camp seem to be making is that people are only playing it because "omg 2007 wus so much fun!1!!", for a lot of people that's not the case.

07scape got it back BY COMPLAINING.

So by any measure our current course of action of complaining everywhere is the perfect strategy to get it sorted.
At the very least Jagex are gonna have to think twice - RSOF is covered in the rage, twitter and fb are being barraged (and ignoring the issue) youtube vid has had comments set to approval before they appear and even here on our humble fansites the pr 'triumph' is facing a bit of tar in the face of the disgruntled majority whose game has officially suffered due to 07scape despite promises to the contrary.

So what? A company should never take heed of their customers complaints? That's the business model you want jagex to abide by?

No, not at all.
The model I'd like is one where when promised 07scape will NOT effect live game one of THE biggest most anticipated releases of the past few years does not get delayed precisely because of 07scape.

People's annoyance now is by no means 07scape existing, it is simply to bring it out so soon Jagex broke THE promise they made to us that it would not effect live game.

Then your previous argument regarding the method people used to get 07scape back is completely irrelevant to the point you're making. Did Jagex say the quest was coming today?

No but they told us the BTS would be this friday and jmods have confirmed the quest has been delayed by a week.

And my previous point about people complaining to get what they want is perfectly valid - we are complaining as loudly as possible because the 07scape whiners have proven this effective; hence in our annoyance at Jagex we shalt complain as much and as loudly as we like regardless of people telling us we should just get on and play or get over it.

Oh, so it was the whining that enabled Jagex to find a back up of 2007 Runescape, I see. And it was the whining, not the prospects of making more money, that made Jagex choose to put out this version of Runescape. We know that's the case because whining got the wilderness and free trade returned to us in a matter of months. I'm glad you could provide us with your business acumen.

And you don't know what delayed the quest, you're making an assumption.

If they had hundreds of thousands of dollars coming into their bank accounts the bank would report them for possible tax evasion/money laundering.

#5307089 My beloved RuneScape...

Posted by Zerker_Jane on 16 September 2012 - 10:30 PM

Meh, whilst you were playing your beloved runescape there were older players lamenting the loss of THEIR beloved runescape because it was giving way to yours. Change will always continue to occur in MMORPGs, some players will adapt and some will quit.

#5300539 Mod MMG on RuneScape Micro-Payments

Posted by Zerker_Jane on 30 August 2012 - 07:24 PM

Same boat as I'm in. I want all the unlockables, but I'm not folding over hundreds of dollars for it. If microtransactions are added, I feel there should at least be a way for people to get the stuff without buying it

I think they should take a page out of LoL's book and make the solomon/sof stuff available to everyone but through a slower way or after a certain amount of time has passed. Eg. you get points for doing stuff like gaining xp, playing minigames, killing bosses, or whatever. And then you can spend them on what you want. Or after a year has passed, the items become free and everyone can get them. Or after a year has passed they are added to loyalty shop, etc. The current system is way too extreme considering we're already paying monthly. I mean, really.

But doesn't the stuff in LoL give actual gameplay advantages? That would probably be why they're also available to non-payers, albeit harder to obtain. Runescape's microtransactions are only cosmetic, and don't affect gameplay, therefore there's no real reason to allow everyone to get them for free.

Good point, no reason to only restrict them to payers though. We all pay for membership we should be entitled to everything.

#5292177 Gold Dupe Glitch...

Posted by Zerker_Jane on 07 August 2012 - 11:06 AM

Someone made a shed load of IRL money from that glitch I'll bet...

If my calculations are right, this guy made like $200,000. Holy shit.

A legend was born.

A legend?... not quite. I doubt he paid any tax on that money. Not only do we as players suffer from this illegally aquired money but so does the country he lives in. I hope someone dobs him in to the authorities.

Tbh you're just being salty, that guy is the epitome of winning.

Although if he's not already filthy rich, that amount of money being deposited in his bank will set off 1001 red flags to the bank for potential money laundering or fraud. So, yeah.

There is something very interesting we can learn from this. Jagex has/had almost no way to effectively monitor for RWT or anomalous GP gains. Accounts should have been monitored for any of the following:

- Picking up large amounts of GP from the ground (good old fashion drop trade RWT)
- Giving away large amounts of GP without significant PVM drops, magic exp gains, or GE sales/trades (this covers the main ways of GP income)
- Strangely high number of interactions with a non-common aspect of the game (not skill related, travel related, inter-mini-game related)

The fact that Jagex can't even manage to have basic bug-detection sent what little belief I had left in the company straight through the floor. Before the mandatory "then why don't you do it better" post, this is what I do every single day, tracking and monitoring account and transaction data for anomalies and fraud attempts.

I think it's fair to say at this point the whole free trade/wildy back thing was a PR stunt to make more money, nothing to do with some new fantastic technology that catches bots.
