Personally, OSRS is due for some graphics updates years ago. I am impartial to what graphics model(s) they allow though.

On the business side, only Jagex know the logistics on ticking off some players. I'll guess it is a catch-22 situation for them as they can't please everybody.

On the legal side, 3PC always carry a duty of care issue. It is a good thing to get to the specifics of what Jagex allow or don't. If this is the issue, there is really no room for complaints.

As for the timing of the banning, I completely understand the frustration of some 3PC users. OSRS should have done this a couple of months earlier.

the link to the official statement is broken......hmmmm....cant seem to even post links without breaking something lol. I am really at a loss for words on the unprofessionalism of this. want some constructive feedback? Don't take 3 years to make the HD version of OSRS. Don't take 1 year to make the HD client, have it ready within the next month. because that was the timeframe your community was expecting before it was taken from them.

This is pure bullsh** . Yet again destroying community around the game!
HDOS client was the best thing i've played in years, and now because you need more money, because i can hardly think of any other reason?? -You decide sh*t on the players and community devs who put ages into those projects around HD!!

There is no putting this right unless the bs post is taken down! With a full apology to the community, about your china minded way of running things!

We can have fun with clients that does not hurt the game.

Unsubbed both accounts for now


Bastards..

The community is almost as upset about this as they were about free trade removal/EOC update. You really would have thought they would have learned by now. Sad honestly.

Membership has been canceled.

My guess is Jagex has a new marketing person, maybe a "Director of Digital Marketing" or "Strategy Manager" or "Product Director" or some other equally BS title trying to justify their position, and to them bad press is better than no press.

This person is drumming up attention for the game.

The Runelite HD post got to #1 on the front page of reddit. Runescape isn't that big. Probably bought upvotes. Get enough of a spotlight on it by disallowing a feature, then allow it showing that you're a benevolent "listen to the community" type of person.

Bam, all of the people who canceled their subs now re-sub. Those who didn't know HD was coming but were former players or half-interested in Runescape are now aware what's going on and maybe try out a month. Some of them stick around.

In a few days they'll take back their ban and allow Runelite HD. Screenshot this post. This whole thing is a dog and pony show.

Hey there! The Rant subforum is this way...

However, please remember to keep it relatively civil, we don't need any extreme vulgarity here.

Whoops, that's on me, was editing and think I accidentally removed a tiny part of the URl. It should work now!

jagex take years to come out with game updates that the community has wanted for years. they never get it right and always have to do fixes after the fact. the guy. how made it is willing to work with them and they just shut him down. what a bunch of clown.

this hole thing shows the level of incompetency of the game as a hole.

Examples:

-jagex game client was so bad people had to come out with there own

-It took how many years to put this game on steam? the largest digital distribution platform for PC gaming, holding around 75% of the market share in 2013.

-people have been complaining about better graphics and people do it on there own time and make the game then jagex ever has. Correct me if im wrong but 1 guy did this over 2 years by him self and did an amazing job. the guy even agreed to take it down once you guys get your slow asses caught up.

how long did it take a team of people to do iron man???? when the hell do you think there going to come out with an hd client if they actually ever do. the fact is jagex half asses there updates every dam time has to fix them and drags there feet.

Seeing people call jagex greedy with decisions like this makes no sense to me. HDOS and third party clients don't change the way osrs earn their income. They lose no money to 3Pclients as membership and bonds are their main source of income. (I guess merch too? Don't know what else rs3 offers)

If anything reading how the community had reacted, they have taken a significant loss for the next two months minimum (till group iron man comes out) and many will perma quit due to distrust in jagex management. Who would want to invest literally hundreds of hours of their time on a game run by a company who shows little remorse at making 2000 hours of work inaccessible. Showing no value on your community's time for a game that demands time spent to progress will make many lose faith in the future of osrs.

A lot of the logic has already been laid out in the 1st page of this form as to why its a horrendous decision. Reddit has some fantastic arguments too, especially about adding a ban on visual elements to the 3rd part T&C.

Not much for me to say other than unsubscribed.

What's the problem is with caring developers..
whether they're in-house/out-house,

HIRE/PERFORMANCE PAY THESE GUYS!?


P.s. ..For 'Securities sake' I personally DO NOT use 3pc.
Not to say that q.o.l., emerson, ergonomics & graphics wouldn't be welcome.
