Runescape as a whole went significantly downhill after that
So today I just want to RuneScape gold be sure, is that common? This scam? I thought it was bizarre that they'd email me without even telling me some past account appeal was denied. And those of you who know what Jagex is like in 2012... would they even attempt to sue me simply giving my account off? Certainly that would do them more damage than good. Thanks.
My theory: Dungeoneering indirectly led to the fall in the quality of Runescape. The 25th ability was designed to bring in more players and more revenue. However, Dungeoneering failed to grow the amount of gamers in Runescape and didn't bring in the added required revenue. Then afterwards in 2010, Insight Venture Partners (bulk owner of Jagex) have to have come down hard on Jagex if there weren't new members in Runescape.
Fly on the wall listening in through that fateful IVP/Jagex 2010 meeting - Representatives of Insight Venture Partners into the agents of Jagex: We predicted this meeting regarding Jagex's cash flow. You led us to believe that this new"dungeoneering" update in April 2010 would increase your market share from the gamers' market. You had your opportunity.
And Runescape as a whole went significantly downhill after that, so many things Jagex introduced were targeted not at changing Runescape, but easy cash grabs: More Bonus XP evenings elimination of Trade Limit and return of older Wilderness [without adjusting the bot problem first... leading to enormous botting in dragons, all high-level trees, all ores, all fish spots, slayer areas, Sorceress' Garden, etc.] (February 1, 2011) Purchase a 90-day Runescape card, get an Ornate Katana (June 20, 2011) Jagex Loyalty Programme (June 28, 2011)
Refer-a-friend program and make a 10% experience bonus lasting one week [Jagex seemingly oblivious to how players weren't speaking their friends to start playing Runescape, they were referring their secondary Runescape account(s) as the friend(s)"new" to Runescape, and giving their main account the 10% experience bonus for referring-a-friend] (August 18, 2011) Purchase a 30-day Runescape card, get green skin - Go Green for Halloween! (October 20, 2011) Buy a 90-day Runescape card, get a Turkey Hat (November 18, 2011) Purchase 6 months' of Runescape, get an Ice Mask (December 14, 2011) Squeal of Fortune (February 28, 2012) Buy spins on the Squeal of Fortune (April 2, 2012)
I wish that dungeoneering would have rescued Runescape, the manner that Jagex had aspired that the 25th skill would usher in a new age in Runescape gameplay...'d the 25th skill brought more people to cheap RS gold , maybe those folks at Insight Venture Partners would have abandoned Runescape alone.
