Though I am wondering what will happen to the people that "abused" it (if you can call it that). Especially with the ironman/ironwoman new highscores... People got from 1 to 99 in skills before the nerf
It was only released today. and allowed for like 2 hours. Theres no way that can get 99 with tiered exp lamps.
It wasn't EOC that killed RuneScape, but many poor decisions in a row. Jagex gave F2P quite some updates that made players quit. Removing PvP from the Wilderness, taking away the hiscores, putting Clan Wars in the most laggy server, removal of free trade and now bombing F2P with P2P advertisements. No wonder most F2P worlds are empty. F2P used to have alot to offer to both free players and ex-members. But since minigames and PvP are dead, there is no point for ex-members to log in except for buying Bonds.
Its crazy how one company can mess up so much. There are 1000s of clear warnings each time. Yet they go ahead because pride.
Concidering 80% of the pole wanted legacy. I would say EoC contributed heavily to people abandoning the game. You would be an idiot to try and make out that it didn't.
Sure we all want RS to go on more. To see it isnt ruined. But not taking into account of f--- ups. That would be insanely dumb of Jagex. Legacy is their halfway mark so far.
Whilst not ruined for some... it was ruined for the majority. They had a choice to A, build on the old system. Less players leave. Carefully crafted. Or B, rip it all up, make a new system that alot of people turned out not to like. Because of development time and ignorance they choose B.
So not ruined, just very damaged. EoC fans would need another disaster to turn them away.
What EoC fans also forget is that these players simply DID NOT LIKE EOC. They had every right to be angry. I find theres a huuugeeee lack of respect for that. Not agreement on opinions but respect.
Jagex are struggling to get a healthy good vision for the game, I think theres huge problems with how the company is running. I don't think they are very efficient or well organised. Even their recent polls have been a bunch of crap. They say its for the future and they ask petty things. The need to ask and break down and define what players want out of RuneScape, what they enjoy in RuneScape. Instead they are asking which NPC to talk to.
Personaly I think its a lie that he has said more people are playing now and the games growing. Just before FTP highscores were added it dropped 20-40k and was slowly declining again (this is after the mass spams of 1p membership) So they are not reliable steady statistics.
I think they should have a system where they can earn the previously not claimed items each years holiday event. For example if you have 2009-2013s, you could get 2008 in 2014s holiday event then because you have that. Next year you get 2007. It builds backwards until you claim them all. meaning if you started in 2009 it would take you 7-8 years to get all event items whilst keeping up with new ones.
What I hate about this is that they are focusing developer time on yelps. I don't want an awful quest dedicated to killing him. Just make a nice cutscene of him getting ripped inside out for when we log in.
with this attitude it is hard to make things better.
I was not serious. Thats why the winks there. I was kind of taking the mick of when I said that saying Adapt or Quit is a bad thing to say, yet the tides turned and now they cannot swallow their own words. Its suddenly an attitude or "not a good reason to say that"
