#5350117 Buying Lots Of Items!

Really nice to see you're still at it :o


#5310852 Botany Bay & Ozan Quest Double Bill - Sept. 26th, 2012

I have to admit, the death animations for player bannings entertain me so much that I can't stop reporting rule breakers.


#5308110 Daily Challenges & Noticeboard

Posted by Dexek on 19 September 2012 - 04:20 PM

From what I gather this will actually get me out of the GE. The experience gains seem quite relevant to the time spent on the task, based on the BTS video on daily challenges.

I'm extremely pleased by the fact that these challenges encompass a wide variety of skills, and aren't simply combat or non-combat related. Time to re-buy some combat gear.

I'm surprised the Noticeboard isn't F2P, as one J-Mod stated that drop mining iron was the fastest mining xp in-game (when referring to xp reward rates for task completion), in which I thought he was referring to F2P, rather than not actually knowing his facts about P2P. They could have used this bit of a distraction, in my opinion.

Also nice to see Solomon and SOF updates becoming "In Other News" rather than a headline it its own. It's not a lot, but it's a step in a favoured direction.


#5307811 Hidden Update: Bots Dying

Posted by Dexek on 18 September 2012 - 08:12 PM

My fastest bot kill has taken under 10 seconds, though I suppose there is the chance that someone reported it a couple minutes prior to myself. They seem to be banned much faster on P2P servers than F2P servers when I report.


#5306326 Behind the Scenes 18: New Challenges, New Security

Posted by Dexek on 14 September 2012 - 01:42 PM

I've been excited for the challenge system all month. I'm hoping it gives me that push to leave the GE, and actually gain some xp in Runescape. It looks promising at least (knock on wood).


#5305628 This has gone too far (avatars).

Posted by Dexek on 12 September 2012 - 01:32 PM


I couldn't put it much better than Kim and Spoofer originally stated. These barbie dolls are nothing to get overly excited over. This thread was amusing when I first thought it was a joke. I'm rather blown away that people are legitimately concerned over a skin tight peach coloured outfit that in some oddly twisted way could be contorted to resemble "skin". Oddly, no one ever complained about the all black skin-tight clothing options running around Runescape.

I remember guys having this "glitch" for ages, but saw no thread then. It's only now that female characters can take on the onion skin look that people are up in arms? Barbie gets all the love, but no one cares about Ken.


I've never seen a guy do this before tbh, when did it first become an option?


I believe it first began with Theliessa's shop upgrade to player character outfits. Sorry for the late reply, I can't often find time to get online.


#5294174 Kid gets robbed over RSGP

Posted by Dexek on 12 August 2012 - 07:43 PM

A friend of mine in our clan was telling me this, except he told me the story was with a BB Gun. I couldn't figure out why the individual being held-up at gunpoint with a BB Gun didn't fight back. This makes a bit more sense if he felt it was a real gun. Rather pathetic that people get robbed over their "magic coins" that they love so, so much... ;)

Also, to the crazy fellow posting prior to myself; have you never gone hunting, shot skeets, or defended property from predatorial animals?




defended property from predatorial animals?


pulli23
Say what??? Those animals have all the right to be there, you don't shoot them simply because they come to your "property". Wild animals are scared from humans, they only go to humans if it is their last option to survive & find food. You ought to blame your neighbourhood for YOU destroying their hunting grounds.

hunting on its own for "fun" isn't humane at all & should actually be a crime (which in civilized countries it is), same for ANYTHING real gun related. Only professionals should work with weaponry; and they should be constantly screened & only use the weaponry in their professional environment. (And never should act alone to always keep a peer reviewing actions).


You're calling me "crazy" for actually wishing other countries became as sensible as most european countries finally did in the last 30 years? I guess you're still gloryfying the cowboys as bringers of freedom?



Sorry, but predatorial animals killing livestock (which are the source of income and a means to feed the country as well as the homesteaders) do not belong. Due to the lack of trapping in this day and age, they have become over-populated and diseased (most commonly with mange). Similar problems have occurred with the varied species of deer as well as the elk populations, and have in turn increased disease potential (tuberculosis) and have hurt the other surrounding wildlife. In this area the hunting ground of the predatorial animals have not been destroyed, so I'm unsure where you hope your assumptions to lead you. There are actually a large number of areas set aside that are left untouched.

I also didn't mention hunting being for its own "fun" as you are once again assuming. Around here people go hunting so they can put food on the table and provide for their families, whilst helping to control animal populations. You must realize that when populations are allowed to grow to extreme levels and become rampant, as well as overcomed with diease, the government has no choice but to perform mercy kills (in which no consumable resources, edible or otherwise are gained). This is a very expensive task, and is the main reason why governmental bodies cannot be hired to control predatorial attacks all throughout a country, especially countries as extensive as Canada and the United States. This would simply be a step in the wrong direction, as any knowledge about the area shows. This has already been attempted with Conservation Officers, who will attempt to trap/kill problem animals, but then the livestock owner must also be re-imbursed for losses, which can be quite substantial when predatorial animals get free range for any period of time. This is why the public have these privledges. It saves everyone time, money, and heart-ache.

I was calling you crazy for irrationally condeming all gun owners to a poorly thought-out and apparently uneducated decision. A case of condeming everyone for the actions of few. Ironically those who make such choices always seem to be condemed themselves in the eye of the many. I'm unsure whether this is a problem of not having all of the facts, or simply ignoring the facts in order to make a view seem like the only potential course of action, but this thread is not the place for it. There is however one, if not multiple gun-related topics on the Off-Topic section of the forums. Posting there may be a better choice; for future reference of course.
