This was a false alarm...but if you fancy getting your hands on one, try poking around the merch store at 10am UK time tomorrow. I heard on the grape vine that some might be air dropped in.

My point being that if they made a definitive statement they could be called hypocrites.

I just looked up the definition of that word and I think it means something neither of us knew.

No I was one of the guys just wondering why they're so adamant about gayness and then it surfaced that some of the jmods are actually gay lol

Why wouldn't we be?

While you're here and you're essentially a lead product manager/owner for OSRS, can you comment on adding Runelite-like features to mobile since there won't be a Runelite mobile? Lots of us would love to see it happen, and I'm certain you guys can create additional buttons and interfaces to make it happen and be fully toggleable so people can experience the game however they want to. Things like ground item overlay (preferably with changeable colors), highlighting agility rooftop spots, etc. Is something like that possible? Should we expect to see something like that?

The good thing about this is if you add the Runelite features from the desktop version of the game to the mobile version of the game, it's a one-and-done kind of thing - no need (or, much less need) to then port the changes to the desktop version of the game since Runelite already is a fantastic open-source option that anyone can enjoy completely for free, just add the relevant features to the mobile client an...

All I can say is that we are looking at it.

How do you genuinely see Rs3 progressing in years though? It's been on a decline for years while OS has been growing really well

I totally understand being optimistic but shouldn't you be thinking realistic as well?

I think I should leave that conversation to the RuneScape team. But I am really optimistic for its future.

I love how active ya'll are in the community. You guys also seem to have the players best interest in mind; I dig it. In an age where to many gaming companies really dont give a flying f**k about their customer, you all seem to.

Thank you. :)

I fully realize nobody at Jagex can say with any kind of certainty, but I'm curious:

Hypothetically, if RuneScape as a whole (including OSRS) were to die, would Jagex consider releasing or selling a standalone, offline version without any continued updates or support?

If the whole RS franchise was to cease to exist it would be sensible to do that depending on the work that needs to be done to allow it to happen. It is rarely a case of just releasing code. You're going to be playing for many many years to come so I don't think we'll ever need to find out.

I get that perfectly and believe that oldschool team has our best interests in mind, it's just the uncertainty about foreign owners that public know pretty much nothing about.

I'm sure that Fukong understands that as well and are well informed about demographics of both games so they wouldn't jump a gun to do radical changes, especially with the success of mobile, but often only the worst case scenario is considered.

Many doomsayers think if Rs3 loses their whales and revenue is going to be lower, investors would want to monetize 07 more and there would be no way to stop it. It's not like polling is a law that you must abide.

That said, I believe there's a big group of players that are burned out and keep playing only because they are addicted, due to sunken cost(time) fallacy or are playing only sometimes with long breaks between. I think many of such players actually somewhat hope that we get more mtx just so they have a reason to quit.

One thing to note is we don't have investors, we have owners. This means there is no quick flipping of companies on the GE to make a few extra GPs.

As a returning player, (thanks for hooking me w/ mobile osrs btw) it's refreshing to see a quick response from a Jagex Mod directly on a reddit post. In some MMOs I've played in the past, it can take the publishers/devs a week or more to formulate some meaningless PR fodder with empty promises. From my perspective, you guys are nailing it with community interaction and response, so thank you.

Thanks mate.

Very curious what you guys consider to be "some wrong decision" carried out by you guys. Would be interesting to hear your perspective on this.

To name a few that spring to mind; trying to close Runelite, taking so long to sort our NMZ, integrity changes that took to long to make, etc.

more mechanics for the engine work? 🚘🔧🙂

Yeah, more of those too.

Mate your proper retarded if you think rs3 will be flourishing in 10 years. Rs3 is bleeding dry most would argue it's already dead.

No, just more of an optimist than it seems you are.

I changed it to RuneScape to show that whatever iteration you played, it is still the game we all started in.
