I feel you are using these charities as a means to SCAM players out of money. I feel like your company should be the last ones allowed to raise money, because of the many unethical ways you collect money from your player base.

Did you know you maybe the cause of mental health issues amongst your own player base? You are a double edged sword that is saying you are trying to help others with courageous plans and extravagant efforts, but at the same time you are encouraging others to develop gambling addictions and playing on their weakness to profit.

Do you see how controversial this is? Maybe you do not, but this is the reason why I'm posting this thread.

EDIT: What actions is Jagex doing with their own player base in terms of helping mental health awareness in specific regards to GAMBLING ADDDICTIONS? What kind of data, statistics do you knowingly use to predatorily shove MTX into spots in the game that you know give you an edge psychologically over players minds?

I know you have a lot of studies on this matter and this data your team deliberately uses on how you collect $ from players is quite the opposite in nature as you are portraying to be. How your company is then allowed to raise money for charities is completely outrageous and a total oxy moron.
Best wishes to all.

If you want to find more irony, here's another: Jagex removed npc dice gambling and prohibited players from running games of chance. While the latter could also be argued it is to prevent scamming, the reason for the former was because 'gambling' is unhealthy to the community.

All these charities that you speak of support you scamming players? Do all of them approve of these dirty tactics as well? What kind of mental health charities do you have going on if they approve of your company's RESEARCHED & EXTENSIVELY STUDIED mental psychological mind game you have instituted into your own game for your player base?

Since they collect $ from you, are they able to turn a blind eye at the psychological oppression that your company has constructed in life through a video game?
Best wishes to all.

So they add another predatory "grind or pay" event to the game and then say they support mental health care?



On another note, Fortnite hired lots of psychologists to make the game as addictive as possible without warning players about that.

I wonder if Jagex has done the same to make vulnerable players buy into their MTX scheme. Personally I don't see how a sane person would buy TH keys.

Not as vile as the last one (half the amount of tokens for the same time), but still fairly poor compared to those promotions themselves (since 15k tokens for 14 days was fairly standard up to that). I just wish they wouldn't abuse charity for this crap. Improvements: Tooltip / (F2P) QoL v2

I know the newspost said that all proceeds from the sale of the charity tokens and runecoin sales for previous rewards will go towards the charities but what I'm confused about is what is Jagex actually giving to the charities they are supposedly suporting?
The revenue from the aforementioned sales is from the players. Jagex are only 'giving' what they 'would have received' nothing extra!

It's too easy to get 10k tokens before the 13th, you do not need to spend a penny.

Again this event is a good cause, and if players want to spend their money on it, it will be because they're supporting the charity.

Please stop making assumptions about Jagex.

I find it extremely telling that they don't have a dedicated forum thread for this one.

Seriously, Jagex, how dare you. You have no bloody right to talk about mental health when you willfully foster and exploit it.
Fullblown non-playing lurker since 26/06/17. May come back if both the devs and the MTX team get their bloody act together.
