Can other players use your portable Vic?

I'm guessing no, since it wasn't mentioned and that would probably hurt the cashgrab nature of this update.


Why should they since all theyd need to do to summon him would be to buy bonds ;)

This is an April fools joke everyone. :) Willing to gamble 50m this won't happen.


If it is, im sad that all this just goes to waste.

Yes I can see how some ppl think this can be bad for the game but you have to admit it is creative.

Plus at the bottom of said post it says no april fools content is planned.

Why tf is everyone bitchin bout this, if you dont like it dont use it. If people want to pay a bond to use their own xp fine let them if you dont like it wait till he comes around normally again.


Agreed.

Did you actually update his inventory or is it the same old shit?


Would like to know as well.

For the last few times ive gotten mostly everything he sells so would like to actually be able to make use of this for once.

Beyond that, I know no F2P players who can consistantly earn a bond within F2P with how high the price of ONE is right now (20m). Not to mention if you're sane in the head, you (using the example of a F2P with no income IRL) would use it on membership instead of a temporary BXP trader anyway...


You do know bossing is a thing even in f2p right?

Also theres skilling which is a good money maker so I know of a lot of ppl use pay for membership only with bonds.

That's because they have access to P2P things to make money with after their membership from the bond starts. F2P moneymaking is a crapshoot.


Nope, if you know how to do it you can easily maintain a bond on f2p.

I really don't understand peoples complaints here.

This is a quality of life improvement for people who can afford it, it is accessible for everyone just easier if you pay for it. I would understand peoples complaints if it was pay online only...

This stuff always goes back to, without methods for Jagex to make money you lot wouldnt get a F2P game.

Everyone's always looking for something to bitch about, and tell everyone how unfair their life is.

Fantastic update imo.


Agreed.

Keep these ideas rolling jagex :)

So just because you "cant afford it" means you have every right to say they shouldn't do this?

Besides, I find it very hard that compers/maxers or even just members cant afford a single bond.

Jagex wants? Expects? Jagex is not the government, nor the city council either. You're so far from the truth.

You're NOT forced to do anything AT ALL. You're completely free to NOT buy anything. If you pay for all (or some of) that stuff it's completely up to you, it's your free choice.


Exactly.

How he thinks anyone is forced to do anything is beyond me

Yes, exactly! Why all the hate for MTX? (that was rhetorical) If you don't like it, don't buy it. Quite simple. I understand why there's those who hate it and understand that there should be "better" updates. I play this for fun, not for some end-game result. (comp/trim/all 200m) I've been wanting something like this with Vic for quite some time. I think this is very useful since there are skills, that not only I but others have bxp in that no longer want to train with that skill or they've 200m in it.


100% agreed.

The only ppl that seem to be against it are the ones who choose not to use it.

Just because you don't use something doesn't mean you need to pretty much force your agenda on others.

Even if portable Vic was harmless, do you think Jagex is going to stop here? No, if you give Jagex a pass on everything that you're able to ignore personally, sooner or later they'll add something that will be harmless, even to you. Again, understand that Jagex isn't your friend, so you don't need to defend them like t


Yet what exactly has your complaining gotten you thus far?

I don't see them stopping any of the MTX any time soon.

Well, despite overwhelmingly negative feedback, this happened anyway.

Of course.


The fact you think this was enough to make them go back on it is laughable.

As someones else said way back in this thread, if you're going to MTX us to death, make the entire game f2p. having mtx on top of regular subscriptions is over the top.


No support.

You don't have to use/partake in MTX and if you dislike it so much might as well play osrs.

Just leave rs3 for the ppl who do like it.

I agree with you Draco. If people do not like this new feature, don't use it, it's just as simple as that! wait until regular Vic shows up then if you're all (a percentage, not all) complaining. There are quite a number of players, myself included, who like some of the MTX promos. We're not forced to buy any of them, but we choose to. I can speak for myself and those in my sort of situation, that some of these promos are good for those who have disabilities who can't click hours away at this, but still enjoy the game as a whole. Like I said, if you don't like it, don't buy it!!!


Thnx for this :)

Well said.

Yes, people ask for the *regular* Vic. People didn't ask for this Vic. Well, not as a MTX anyway, for free (with membership subscription) they probably would take it.


Well sadly not everything can be free and if you want to get a benefit like this you're going to need to pay.

It used to though, and still easily could, if it weren't for the people who bought into Jagex's lies about MTX being needed for the game to be profitable. :P


No I don't ever remember membership giving you everything.

Also like said before, just because it might not be needed, why should they have to limit how they make money just because a small minority choose to complain about it?

should have added a runecoins option to buy instead of just bonds


Why does it need rc as well?

Yes jagex could make even more money this way but I don't see whats so bad about just bonds?

I mean one could see this as jagex trying to make money off the bonds as they seem to making quite a lot off rc due to the event.
