Well I quite liked that one we've just had, because it gave me 3 of everything. Even if it was crap, at least I got crap x3.
I also liked it because it gave me some Supreme Stars (or w/e they're called), which are deliciously op.
But I only seemed to keep getting small ones of these. I'd like some huge, great, big, fat, juicy biggest-possible-size ones .... pretty please, Jagex.
I like the Ancient Relics promotion - not actually because I've got anything good from Alice but because there's two relics per day to be had for free just for lodestone hopping a little bit. So I thoroughly approve of doing almost bugger all for some free xp and stuff. More of that, please.
Not so keen on the promotions that give cosmetics. I don't use cosmetics hardly ever. But at last I can convert those into oddments and then convert again into stars and stuff. And I suppose it keeps the cosmetics collectors happy ... so it's sort of win-win.
So keep up the good work, Jagex and hit me with more XP.
DracoáBurnzsaid: FiFiáLaFelessaid: Ooooh! Which ones? Although, to be fair, I am very lazy and probably wouldn't play them. And I'm always seeing threads saying that minigames are dead, so that's a worry.
Jagex shouldn't cater to ppl who choose not to help themselves IMO.
Plus theres this thing called using your fl or cc to get minigames running.
No. I'm too lazy to do that. I want more bxp from stars and lamps and schizz. Hence this thread letting Jagex know I love TH and any bxp they chuck into it. I'd like them to do more of it. Lots more. They already cater to people like me quite a bit (have done for a long time now) and I hope they do it even harder. It would make me even happier.
OK, I feel I must concede you have a valid point there, Dracz. Those runes are, indeed, a valid money-making method (although I prefer buying pots from the stores at 1gp and selling them on the GE for 3gp .... it's a more regular income. But each to their own).
Not wanting to split hairs though, or fall out with anyone over their wealth generating methods however. Just wanting to let Jagex know I love Alice (despite her sometimes alarming facial contortions) and implore them to give me morrrrrre bxp.
I mean, look at that above. Tenebri - 5.4b experience. Wut? Crazy. That's what I want and Alice can help me out if Jagex'll slip in a few more double God chest promos and the like
I trade him my bxp and he gives me a crappy exchange rate to buy stars or lamps that are worth far less xp than the bxp I handed over to him.
I suppose it'd be useful if one had bajillions in bxp for a skill one had no intention of ever training again so at least part of it could transfer over to a skill that was going to be trained, but otherwise he's a waste of space.
It is heartening to know I am not a lone voice in the wilderness. I would love to visit HQ and shake the hands of the Monetization Team - every last one of them.
Alas and alack, I fear this will not be possible right now as I have spent the train fare on purchasing more packages in the current wonderful promo in order to maximise my dwindling BXP. I simply cannot resist the offer of Supreme Stars.
Tagakhlosaid: If you're short of bonus xp, now you can buy stars with oddments, so I would have thought oddments kind of fixed this issue.
Well, no not really. In order to accumulate oddments one must first discard the contents of a chest and convert it.
Some things I'm happy to discard, such as cosmetics (not my 'thing' at all) or crappy little things like 20 potions or some Air Runes. The crappy little prizes generally only yield a meagre amount of oddments so one would have to open a lot of chests to accumulate enough oddments to 'buy' stars.
To open lots of chests, one would first have to spend lots of money buying chests. I don't really want to do that, I'd prefer for Jagex to have the chest contents as stars in the first place.
If you see what I mean.
Which is why I'm pleased when there's a promo that gives a lot of bonus xp items.
For the record ..... Jagex I'm bored to the back teeth with the current Cinder Cores one. It feels like it's been going on forever. Far too long. There's not much point in running a bloody great long promo for something that rips through bonus xp if I'm low on bonus xp to begin with
Oh dear I must say that the current promo is not to my liking.
It really doesn't offer anything much at all that is not already exactly available in the hidden chests of Alice - just now you know in advance you're likely to get a pile of low value junk like tiddly little lamps and small stars. You can be disappointed before you're disappointed.
Using oddments to reset isn't much of a carrot either; oddments can be put to much better use buying Cores or whatever.
Is this, I wonder, some attempt at appeasement of the "we dun liek gamblin" brigade? If one can see what's likely to be won, then it's not really gambling and it removes any vestiges of tingling anticipatory excitement?
Anyway, it's drab and uninspiring and if it's to be the future of TH then I rather think your Whales will become anorexics.
