New skill speculation?

CrystalSkiesCrystalSkies Member Posts: 3

For any of you guys who still play RuneScape (that's right, talking to all of you in-the-closets out there), anyone want to speculate on Jagex's New Year message regarding a new skill coming in 2010? I'm thinking something along the lines of music or fashion, although I understand those are pretty far-fetched. Don't know about all of you, but I'm pretty damn eager to find out what's in store for this coming year. :D

    If they do release a new skill, and it is either music or fashion, I'm quite certain they'd lose a hell of a lot more subscribers than they could ever hope to gain.

     

    I think Runescape would be better off further exploring the idea of an "end-game". They're started to, most recently with the addition of the Corporeal Beast, but high level content is hard to come by in Runescape. Considering that new players are getting rarer in the game (since there are so many F2P options of higher quality out there), Jagex is going to have to start focusing on retaining older players.

     

    A new skill could do that, but I can see no practical reason for releasing either of the two that you mentioned.

    its gunno be f2p and p2p....but theres really no way to tell because they'll probly add some more map space if its like hunting or slayer so u cant really base it off of what we have now. im guess it'll be stupid because if it wasnt, they would be telling us more about it. if i were jagex i would fix what they have now and then make a new skill. but ill tell u one thing...if it does have to do with music or fashion....ill be quitting lol

    but im hoping it'll be a necromancer skill (doubt it will be) or anything combat based, but maybe like a pet training skill? that seems like something jagex would do...

    If it's Music and Dancing then it needs to be 'Runescape5'. They should have ended RS2 at the point of removing Wildy but they didn't and just made the game go more downhill all the time. They brought in a dumb mini-game (knives hit my back) which was with an update of the games visuals that dropped item collection rates considerably woodcutting logs & even to the amount of 0 hits on enemies, now you get items in Secret Creation that gives a small amount of that experience back at the cost to previous players and to those of us without the time to get into more rubbish they add in the game. Secret Creation is the Jagex Secret Creation of a way to make more money from the dwindling players.

    I bet the next new skill will be another thing they will take from lots of enjoyable games - lets copy sailing and boat building aswell as lots of other new skills to come from this direction. Yes many will have played games with this so will be un-impressed when Jagex copy it. They won't make different versions of banks to store so much rubbish, they could add more new armour and weapons that keep on making a mess of other gear we had that did cost heaps but now is worthless junk. RS isn't a long-time playing game as updates bring in some new players while closing down the desire of a lot more to keep playing!!!

    With lagg coming back in force they need to simplify the visual usage while making clan chat  a lot less of a drag on the servers. This game is made to benefit a few at the cost of many and hacking has seen a lot of lower account people caring our hard earned items so hacking needs to be stoped too thus remove Faldor Parties or restrict them to the IP address user only!

    Oh thinking how it would be good to shoot Jagex, it may have something to do with guns - yes they could be that stupid!!!
