yep, this could just as easily be a rant.


A huge problem is that the "voting" is cumulative. This is so massively unfair that it pretty much invalidates the concept of voting altogether. If the votes reset reset daily (as they should), then there MIGHT be some argument for one skill being more popular than its competitors. Because of the elimination process (a poorly conceived idea), the "voting" if you even can call it that, has been skewed from the beginning. The cumulative voting has meant that Dung has been in the lead since day one. Do I need to hang around to see what skill will "win?" clearly not. Because, clearly, the RS community has declared that they want an easy way to hit 120 Dung without actually having to do any Dung. Dung is the winner. yay


okay, we know how some events will go from the beginning. We knew while building the stupid boat that it would be completed & sail to the new island content. No surprise there. However, when creating content that is SUPPOSED to be determined by the community, you might consider making content that is, in fact, truly determined by the community, not something that only gives some superficial appearance of it.

Speaking of superficial appearances, the currency "doubler" is the worst aspect of the event. You don't just vote by skilling - you need currency, aka, TOKENS - to BUY votes. Well, that in itself is bad enough. Even if confined to in-game skilling content only, it would favor only those who had extra game time to "vote." However, the practice of spending REAL money to BUY DOUBLE votes, well, that is heinous. I'm not a lawyer, but I suspect that in some jurisdictions, it might even be illegal.

I'd also like to clarify, all my votes towards Dungeoneering don't mean that it's my favorite skill. In fact, it's the opposite. I absolutely despise the skill so am doing as much of it with this event as possible so I don't have to dungeoneer later.

Edit: Started at 88 dung, now at 96. Should be close, if not all the way to 99 by the time it's done. I have not been too attentive at work this week....

Likewise, while I don't have the same levels as you in the skill I still share the same view - I absolutely detest dungeoneering as a skill but I have nothing else to do at this point but attempt going for comp which one of its reqs. is having the three main 120s (dungeoneering, slayer and invention).

I went from 116 - 118 dungeoneering thanks to the recent DXP weekend, so thanks to this event I've gone for 118 - 119 and I'm now (as I type this) currently 5.6m exp off 120 dungoneering. Why? I'm completely burnt out from the DXP that just ended and training the skill normally that I'm not passing up a non intensive way of training dungeoneering like what this event provides.

If I get 120 by the end of this, great. If not I'll have done the bulk of it without actually doing anything which is just as good, I'll just go back to doing small floors from 1 - 37 in batches of 10s and 2 large floors from 37 - 60 with an extended daily to finish the rest of it.

The event is a way for Jagex to say I’m sorry about Anachronia. The horridness that is this event is abysmal. Jagex gives away xp so people can get maxed earlier and have nothing to do.

This event is commonplace for mobile games.

Every skill in this event is about gaining levels without actually touching the skill. Is it broken? Yes. Is it a bad event? Yes. Does Jagex care?

Not really fair when dg and rc gets extra votes from f2p players who can't vote on the others. (no one vote cook because its fast and cheap already, even for f2p)

Seems like all the other afk methods to me.

Yet no ones complaining about those.
