Main Issues Come From OSRS Survey: Micro-transaction, EOC, MXT
To identify what makes OSRS special for players and help create a strategic framework for Old School RS, Jagex has made a survey among scapers, where people come up with some sharp topics, including the addition of micro-transaction, MTX in OSRS and combat system.
General intents of Old School RS
Many people claimed that the Old School Team made such a decision just in order to make up the dismission of Reach. But quickly, Mod Mat K clarified that this survey aims to help identify what makes OSRS special for players and create a strategic framework that they can develop in. and the results will be shared with all players in future. This should help make more updates that players like and less that they don't.
Specific issues come up by players
1. Micro-transactions in old school RS
Micro-transactions have been available in RS 3 for years, and there is a sharp difference among players. Some insist that introducing micro-transactions in a way like Rs3 did (double xp, skilling outfits, gp/items) would destroy the game. But others think that it is not that bad and the devs can make limits when introducing it.
2. MTXs in Old School RS
Some people believe that MTXS is ok if it just affects the graphics and spell effects, like $20 for full HD graphics or $5 to change the animation when you teleport. But others insist that MTXS must do harms for the game, so they cannot be bearable.
3. Combat system
It seems OSRS never would have taken off if eoc was never implemented. Without EOC, there may be like 5k players simply for nostalgia, but definitely not half the playerbase.
Actually, Jagex always does a good job for Old School RS because of polls from players, and also make many marvelous decisions in game, like PDC. So based on this survey, there will be more amazing updates available on OSRS. Buy old school RS gold on RSorder to be ready!
