    Nothing against patches but for real, where's the new content? 6 weeks in a row with nothing to new do is a hell of a long time, what's the problem?

    More dailyscape for both clans and individuals... why not let players choose when they wish to play by foregoing the psychological pressure of limited time event spam?

    Awe inspiring list of patches! Thanks for your amazing commitment to keeping RuneScape alive and well! It's not commonplace to have weekly patches for most software. The work that it takes to pull this off as cleanly as Jagex does week after week is admirable to say the least.

    ...? Nobody's forcing you to do this lol

    Sounds like more of an interpersonal problem if you're throwing words like "psychological pressure" over one of the first clan events in years. It's a solid update based around new content.

    If you aren't pressured by dailyscape, consider yourself lucky, because many players aim to be efficient because they find it fun, and Jagex knows this and how to manipulate it: giving more exp and other boosts manipulates said players into playing more often than they would otherwise.
