Original message details are unavailable. Will be a massive flop tbh. (bad reviews will take over)
Where to begin:
1) everything is about MTX 2) shit combatsystem 3) can't move using WASD 4) outdated player characters 5) new artstyle looks childish
New players won't be intrested. 90% of the current playerbase are veterans.
Inappropriate language This includes (but is not limited to): discussion of recreational drugs, sexually explicit language, solicitation, racism or other prejudice, threatening behaviour, blackmail and excessive swearing.
Solicitation It is not okay to ask for a boyfriend or girlfriend in-game. This is not a dating website after all!
quote from rs homepage
To many, RuneScape is more than just a game or an escape. It is a place to form friendships and relationships (marriages, even!) or be part of something bigger, like the buzz of a Lumby Crater event. RuneScape, in so many ways, is defined by the experiences we have with one other as we share our adventures, quests, years of boundless mastery and achievements together. We believe this is a world with so much more to give, and with many years ahead of it yet to unfold.
I'm a bit skeptical of this launch on Steam. All this will do is provide a steady source of advertising Jagex themselves have been really bad at. While it's true we could get a few new players who will stay long-term, I seriously doubt this will result in a substantial increase in the concurrent player population.
Personally, my thumbs are crossed for the full release of RS3 on mobile. That's a change that is guaranteed to increase the concurrent player count substantially. Shame the Covid-19 and this sort of marketing will slow that mobile release. Well, at least Jagex is getting serious about advertising RS more aggressively now. Better late than never.
