The more you know indeed.

Are there any protections to prevent the "popular" and "e-celebs" just getting their legions of minions to mass vote even if the ideas are shit or skewed in their favour?




#5534926 Transformers Universe To Shutdown In January

I wonder if their are any potential suitors for Runescape.

Fen Research?




#5534890 Transformers Universe To Shutdown In January

I also wonder how the financials worked for this between Hasbro and Jagex in terms of who invested the most in the game. The cost of this failing is a drop in the ocean to Hasbro, but it could quite easily have been 50% + of Jagexes profit from Runescape for the last few years wasted on this

From the language used in the post I think this is very much a Hasbro decision. This game still needed a vast amount of investment and development before coming out of beta and without the backing of Hasbro there was no way Jagex could fund it. This decision will have massive repercussions on the rest of the company.

 

Mark Gerhard once said that canning Stellar Dawn cost Jagex over £10m. You are right to ask how much was wasted on this that could have been invested in existing IP.

 

On a positive note, plenty of developers and artists with free time now to create more TH and Solomon promotions... :rolleyes:  /s

These pets don't make sense. Not in the lore at least. Seems a stupid addition just because they can.




#5517450 Stigma with Sexual Orientations and Identities

Posted by Mercifull on 08 September 2014 - 12:59 PM

RuneScape is a MMORPG, you can roleplay and marry whoever you like in game provided they are another player and are happy to play along.

 

You can't marry the prince in the Kingdom of Miscellanea quest series because he's not gay, and besides it was a marriage of convenience not of love. Perhaps you'll have more luck with Brian O'Richard? Or for a more realistic suggestion try world 42.




#5513948 Do not go to RS main page - website compromised

Posted by Mercifull on 20 August 2014 - 08:29 AM

Homepage loaded normally for me. Not sure how this attack as described could have happened. The server disruption is supposedly due to an ongoing DDOS attack not an actual "hack". It's possible that the people doing the phishing (if the claim is true) have managed to compromise the ad server but the DNS for runescape.com is still correct so there no MITM attack there.

 

There's been no posts on social media warning people of this so it looks unlikely to me. Perhaps a small misunderstanding by someone.




#5509566 Araxxor, Twitch Integration and Lobby Update

On 21st July I wrote... http://forum.tip.it/...10#entry5507788

Expect it to change its attack/fight mechanisms every time you fight. Sometimes it'll be resistant to magic, others to melee and you won't ever know until you start the fight. Oh and make a single misclick?.... instant death. Also it costs 10m gp each time to fight.... and takes about 2 hours.

 


How close were my predictions?

1. Expect it to change its attack/fight mechanisms every time you fight - As well as the different mechanics each week it also gets harder every time you fight it, resetting at 1am

2. Sometimes it'll be resistant to magic, others to melee and you won't ever know until you start the fight - Each path triggers different fight mechanics

3. Oh and make a single misclick?.... instant death - Watch out for those highly acidic spiders.

4. Also it costs 10m gp each time to fight - A rather modest 200k to fight. I was exaggerating about the 10m but I knew Chris L couldn't resist charging at least some GP. Only one person or duo can enter the base world instance at a time. If someone is already inside, you will not be able to enter and have no option but to pay the fee.

5. Takes about 2 hours - Wildly off for this one but by the time you add up the repairing of gear and collecting resources it probably does take quite a while.

Looks like you need really top end gear to fight as well. How much developer time was spent on something so few people will ever play?




#5507788 14-Jul-2014 — Legacy Mode Launch, Global Combat Improvements and Gear Guide

Posted by Mercifull on 21 July 2014 - 07:46 AM

I hope Araxxor is worth it. I really do.

It's a Mod Chris L boss so I wouldn't hold your breath. Expect it to change its attack/fight mechanisms every time you fight. Sometimes it'll be resistant to magic, others to melee and you won't ever know until you start the fight. Oh and make a single misclick?.... instant death. Also it costs 10m gp each time to fight.... and takes about 2 hours.




#5506288 Legacy Mode – Launching Monday 14th (+Legacy Discussion)

Posted by Mercifull on 14 July 2014 - 01:00 PM

 

It's a shame that with Legacy mode we go back to the old animations and stances. I love the new models and fighting emotes and moves I just want simple old combat back hehe.

 

Once more, "legacy mode" is

- auto attacks

- old combat animations

- old style interface

 

If you just want old style combat, use momentum. Exact same thing. It is auto attacks.

 

But silly lifepoints and hits. We aren't able to pick and choose which legacy elements we want. It's either/or. :(

You're broadcasting unlicensed and illegally. As someone who works in the radio broadcasting industry I should report you.

#5502426 23-Jun-2014 - Skillchompas and Legacy Mode Poll

Posted by Mercifull on 23 June 2014 - 01:40 PM

Massive applause for the authenticator (even if it does come 2 years later than my suggestion). Extra applause for going with a tried and tested standard as well rather than their own implementation. I have a sneaky feeling that JAG has been able to be bypassed for quite some time, there's no getting around this.

At least they're finally being honest about how they're going to pander to the maxed crowd.

 

Can't really blame them since it wouldn't surprise me at all if maxed (or "high level") players are the majority of the playerbase now.

 

 

With the huge amount of free xp Jagex is flinging at everyone these days for doing bugger-all, we'll all be maxed soon.




#5476109 138 vs. 200: Vote on combat level formula! (not guaranteed content)

If they change it, I want a reprinted set of RuneScape Top Trumps cards. Ta.




#5475734 138 vs. 200: Vote on combat level formula! (not guaranteed content)

Posted by Mercifull on 26 January 2014 - 01:31 PM

Both formulas are flawed. Prayer and summoning need to be included, even if its only a negligible amount. I preferred the old formula but it was too stacked towards melee. We need a new formula.
