#5300204 Mod MMG on RuneScape Micro-Payments

Posted by pal2002 on 29 August 2012 - 07:13 PM


Mmm... So all I saw was the security bit, really? That counts as content? Have no idea what you mean by the other 5 pcs. The html5 is not gonna come for years, if at all.


Announced:
- Filter updates, breaking (probably temporarily) spambots - ETA this week
- Bot breaking update larger than the original bot nuke - ETA "next few weeks"
- JAG - ETA "two weeks"
- updating the client to work with HTML5 (implementation was hazy here) - ETA unclear, prolly by year's end
- Mobile platform RS client - ETA unclear, probably by year's end though now that they have the dev team
- vague promises on further tech updates as well as content updates - ETA throughout the rest of the year

Dunno how that's a lack of substance in your world. I'm not saying there wasn't a lot of bullshit in there too, but you must've misread to not think that it offered a lot of information, too.


Well, counting number of negative adjectives you used - probably x2, hazy x1, vague x1, unclear x1....yup. Sounds like a lot of empty promises to me. And I have learned many years ago to not believe any Jagex ETA's.

Good to know some JMods are against microtransactions.

Boy is he gonna be in trouble for even making that post.

But yes, at least good to know that among all the evil, there maybe some good (but powerless) left at Jagex.

Reading MMG's blurb felt a lot like the speeches at the RNC last night. Written by mindless speech writers with zero factchecking for the express purpose of PR and propaganda. Soooo little substance. Sooo many complete outright lies. MMG might as well be running for the republican nomination.

And out of everyone at Jagex who could have made that post, I felt like MMG had the least credibility.


#5204311 Stellar Dawn development put on hold

Posted by pal2002 on 06 March 2012 - 07:41 AM

Reported on numerous sources
http://massively.joy...ns-development/


Word to the wise: Don't put "dawn" into any part of your MMO's name, or else it will get hit by the curse of breaking dawn. Just ask Dawntide, DAWN, and now, Stellar Dawn.

Yes, unfortunately it's true. Jagex announced that it's suspending development on Stellar Dawn to make sure the company is in the best position possible by concentrating on Transformers Universe and RuneScape. While the studio was able to shuffle most of Stellar Dawn's team around to new positions, the decision still resulted in the loss of 12 jobs.

In a prepared statement, CEO Mark Gerhard was highly complimentary of Stellar Dawn's team and progress. "Jagex has always been committed to developing the highest quality games and services. This is not a decision we have taken lightly; the Stellar Dawn team has achieved a great deal developing the game and should rightly be proud of their achievements so far."

Stellar Dawn fans might find hope in the language being used by the team in the forum announcement, as the title's development is described as being "paused" and a "temporary move" instead of being outright cancelled.
