1 Squeal of Fortune Update on Tue Apr 03, 2012 10:24 pm

Hello everyone,

Seeing as a lot of people seem to be discussing this update and that I always like our global chat rants, I've decided to make a thread where we can discuss the Squeal of Fortune in general and its recent update.




Personally, I had nothing wrong with the Squeal of Fortune when it was first released. A little bonus for both free players and members where they had the chance to get some items or an exp lamp. Now seeing as random events are a lot less common now, it seems reasonable to give people the chance to grab a bit of extra exp everyday.

With yesterday's updates, I have very mixed opinions. On one hand, I think the ability to grab extra spin tokens from taking part in Distractions and Diversions that are losing popularity is good and the same for being able to obtain them from training skills as a rare drop.

However, I must say that I am against being able to buy spins for real life money. I've always stuck by Jagex's side on RWT and trying to give all members equal benefits but this is just wrong if you ask me. Now, I know a lot of the videos on YouTube in the last day have been showing people getting 300k rc exp from 160 spins which I suppose you could say makes the update stupid as it undermines training normally but the majority of these people already had 85 or 90+ in the skill they were using the lamps on. For most people with 60 or 70 stats, buying spins is probably worse off and considering the average levels players have, I'd say for about 80% of players, buying spins isn't worth it.

I'd love to say that Jagex will come to their senses and remove the ability to buy extra spins but I don't think they will. Go back to the Refer a Friend programme, after all the petitions and everything, the argument eventually died off and it's still here but just not used as much. I'd say something similar will happen to buying spins and that eventually you'll be left with like 0.5% of the players buying spins.




Voice your opinion below about the update Happy

Meh, talked about this a lot in the past day.

Basically, Stupid update, shouldn't be in the game.
Although, it's not a surprise, called it agessssss ago. <_<

I would have prefered them just to have made a shop to buy gp.

So they've finally added micro transaction to the game.
Runescape is one update short of becoming destroyed, it'll be the same as TF2 not about actual gameplay and all about hats. For a while now I didn't care too much about updates they've done, with their RWT, I mean aslong as it didn't effect the gameplay initially right? Well this one has, players are now capable of practially buying expensive items with money.

Jagex is a corrupt bunch of dumbasses and I'm surprise I haven't quit Runescape and not return to it.

I'd just like to point out two things from Jagex mod posts:

1: (From the news post)
If you require more spins, or simply prefer to save some time, you can purchase various spin packages. to do this, simply click the "buy spins" button within the Squeal of Fortune interface.

2: (Post by Mod Timbo)
You're right, you can't buy an in-game advantage still. You can earn the spins from doing what you normally do but if you can't wait to earn them then you can buy them. As you're not buying any particular item but a chance to, it's not going to be 'pay to win'.

Timbo

Let's look at that again:
or simply prefer to save some time
you can't buy an in-game advantage

So... Saving time is not an advantage?

And we all know what Runescape is all about, time. Nothing is difficult in the game just time is required. My Membership runs out tomorrow, I'll probably leave it that way.

I probably get about 1 random event every 800k Hunter exp, which is like 8 hours of game time.

I've noticed that a lot of people seem to be having a go at Mod Timbo for what he is saying. He works for the community management team instead of the development team. He can only try to explain the update with the knowledge he knows or from his opinion. This is why Mod Mat K said he would try to get someone to answer the questions everyone wants answering about the update.

I get a random event just as often as I ever have done with slayer, usually after every task (maybe 2)

I just noticed all of the people in pink at Falador and assumed that it was to do with the W66 riot seeing as everyone there was wearing pink at the time we were there.

I'm not sinking to that level.

Do you think Jagex WILL do anything or are they just going to leave it there as if nothing big has changed.

I bought 75 spins, it's a waste of money.
With the 2 daily spins and a few double spin tickets I had 85 spins total.
I got no items worth mentioning and about 30 lamps, which were all small or medium and only 13 had the option to choose the skill.
You have to be a millionaire to train that way.
Jagex scam.

It's not a scam, everyone should clearly understand how unlikely it is to get anything good. I've already done like 80 spins from the dailies and I've got nothing worth mentioning, so it's just as likely that the next 80 I do will be the same.

It may be a complete rip off, but it's not a scam.

Double clicking the spin button on Squeal of Fortune skips the slowly stopping animation and goes right to the prize screen.

This way, you won't get your hopes up to the (false) likelihood that your spin is going to stop on something close ahead.

As has been said, the moment you first click the red button, your reward has already been chosen, why sit through that tension when you can just find out without delay or apprehension that you've got 5 silver ore like always.

Just thought I'd say that for those who didn't know.
