Latest Patch NotesChristmas Event 2018 (9 months ago)

Yesterday


I think it was an Elemental shield. I subscribed not long after Elemental Workshop came out and somebody said it was the best shield in the game. 11 year old me lapped it up.

In today's Q&A we revealed that it would be next Thursday (we also reference it in tomorrow's game update post).

It's interesting to hear that you liked them, that's not how they're often viewed...

I wouldn't say that we snuck them on, Favour was present since Kourend's release, and Architectural Alliance came after (one of many Favour-friendly changes we introduced in the wake of what was quite a panned Zeah release).

would i be crazy making a comparison to path of exile, diablo3? the base game is basically the same, but every couple of months they start a "fresh leaderboard" with some kind of modifier for a few months. ie diablo recently gave every play a passive that made set bonuses take 1 less gear piece, path of exile currently has a tower defense thing going on, in addition to the core gameplay loop.

That's not a crazy comparison to make. It's not exactly the same, but in the sense that it's a fresh season with new twists (like they do it) is similar.

They'll be talked about more in a future blog and polled.

Nope, it doesn't - that's why we'll be polling it to see if you'd like what we offer.

Kinda bummed considering this isn’t a new game mode friendly for all players. Some of us have full time jobs and children, where some play runescape for a living. And I understand that it’s shit luck for some of us but a new skill or something could have been fair and exciting, not a race to the finish line. But good work on the creativity. :)

The content is genuinely aimed to be wider appealing. We ain't really aiming this to be a super competitive game mode like we've done in the past.

It is a fresh take on Old School and a different way to play, whilst playing less you'll get less points, every point you earn makes a difference in terms of the rewards you can get onto your main account.

Hopefully you'll be pleasantly surprised with the Rewards we intend to offer :)

The rewards system. The expectation is the cosmetics offered in the main game will be tradeable, purchasable with the points earned in the leagues. Either buy them for yourself to show off or sell for profit.

Whilst there's HiScores, the main focus of leagues isn't to be hyper competitive. Each league would have a different twist, and we'll announce the twists prior to the launch. One league may be ironman, another may be more focused on groups.

This seems really cool! Though I'm a bit unsure about cosmetics carrying over to the main game if they're only obtainable if you achieve a 'high score in the leagues'. For alot of players this is out of reach, and I'd hate to see people missing out due to the little free time they have. I hope everybody has a chance to obtain these cosmetic rewards in the main game. Other than that, I'm interested!

The cosmetics we offer in the main game will be detailed in a future blog, but I'm expecting them all to be tradeable. This means players who don't wish to player leagues can still purchase them from others.

I like it! But as someone who can only play 2-3 hours a day max, it kinda seems pointless to even try to compete against streamers and other people who can easily play 8+ hours a day everyday.

What if each account was limited to like 6? hours a day on the league gamemode? That way, it keeps it more about efficiency and less about who can dump the most time into it. It would also discourage account sharing for those who would try to grind 24/7, and it wouldn’t end your run to #1 if you have to take a day off.

Whilst you can compete for top of the HiScores, this should be something that is worth playing regardless of whether you're winning or not! The main focus isn't that it is competitive, more that it's a fresh way to play Old School, spinning it on its head with a different hook.

Keep your eyes peeled for the future Rewards Blog. The Rewards System might give more insight as to why it will be worth playing even if you can only play for a few hours a day :)

Cheers! I understand I'm never going to please everyone but I'm always happy to take on feedback and apply it to my work. Comments like the one by AutoDog just come off as spiteful at the end of the day and I find it funny that that's how they spend their time. To each their own, I suppose.
