I have finally seen the light! I am now going to quote a signature:
Are there any players of runescape or former players of runescape?
Then you know Jagex ruined it.
Allright Jagex software, prepare for yet another attack.
You ended player killing and replaced it with bounty hunter and castle wars, you made a trade limit, and you made the Grand Exchange so merchanting is impossible.
All of this was done in the name of ending real-world item trading.
Well, Jagex, you are all filthy hypocrites.
YOU ARE REAL WORLD TRADERS.
The rational you have behind not allowing real world trading is that it is unfair for monetarily opulent people to simply buy their way into having all the items they want, instead of working hard. It destroys the "spirit of the game."
Don't be surprised when I say this, but many F2P players abide better by the spirit of the game than members. They work hard to get their items, and they are helpful members of the Runescape society. Members are somewhat arrogant and show-offy.
So in terms of abiding by the spirit of the game, don't F2P players deserve a chance to get the same benefit as members because they work so hard?
Members have available to them more land to explore, more skills to train, and more items to obtain. They do so because they paid money...to YOU. In terms of abiding by the spirit of the game, shouldn't just the most respectful people have these benefits, not those who have the money?
You have facilitated real world trading, Jagex. You give benfits to those who pay. Isn't that real world trading, hypocrites?
You have ruined the game with your series of updates for nothing.
