The main answer I gave OSRS Items in this survey that I want to get across: The last decision on any material should be made with BOTH the community AND Jagex working together to generate content that is really worth adding to Runescape. Players have demonstrated they will vote yes to a fairly absurd shit (Watch the Tome debacle) at which Jagex needs to intervene and understand that asking was a mistake, while Jagex has also demonstrated when they forge ahead on their own it doesn't work out well for us. Trying to frame this query as an either/or is leaving out a massive quantity of nuance from the issue, and this is something that applies to numerous issues discussed in the poll.
This survey provides me the vibes which you guys actually need to be famous to your communication with your community, and that you're well knowledgeable about the gaming world about you. None of them are especially true. Jagex"communicates" with their neighborhood over a number of other games, but not nearly the most, particularly when you don't count surveys that are crampacked filled with voting biasing problems, questions which shouldn't be asked, and (what feels like) intentional misinformation or lack of vital information required to make an educated choice.
You're very afraid of repeatable quests and OSRS HD which will both be optional and that will not impact you at all whatsoever, nor will influence Runescape for you because one is decorative and the other won't give rewards? This kind of overreaction makes it hard to choose what you are saying seriously. And new abilities - those things that a sizable majority of players want, but maybe not quite 75% in any given case - yes, truly Jagex are ignoring their whole player-base here. Don't overlook the large number of people that spite vote contrary to pvp updates simply because they do not like the community. Unpolled changes are fine if that is the case.
It's correct that the very best content of OSRS normally come in BOTH Jagex and community serving each other. But we must remember that Jagex by his own is also able of great surprise if given the opportunity ( consider how Twisted League was awesome, and we didnt knew much about it before launch ) I think if all League content was polled ahead, it could have been alot different and likely not as exctiting and surprising. What's wrong with repeatable quests? And here I thought the whole leveling experience could be shattered with this one update.
I agree with everything you mentioned except for you getting your underwear on fire for them asking for phone number optionally at the end of the survey. There was also no need, whatsoever, to use your RS email, and you could always offer a imitation in Runescape game name if this area was demanded (not sure if it had been ). Extreme reaction for three disciplines you had on filling out autonomy. Employment status is also market study. You'd answer a question nowadays for virtually any survey that's trying to become serious about the demographics.
I might be in the minority here but I'd love to see something such as dungoneering added. Found it interesting that this came up in the poll but unlucky it had been tied to summoning (yuck). Really enjoyed dungoneering and exploring/randomness' group facets into it. Also having to produce your own gear was cool so that the wealthiest players didn't always have an advantage going through the skill (nothing against these players, just found it was fun for the ability ). OSRS edition of dung could be sailing. So when RS 2007 Gold its repolled later on vote yes, it would be nice for OSRS to receive its own exclusive skill much like our quests.
