    Default Runescape Double XP weekend

    On the weekend of the 12th of March 2010, we will be running a "bonus XP weekend" for RuneScape members. This has been officially announced in our newsletter (if you haven't already, then sign up for it here).

    We've put together this blog as more of an FAQ to answer any questions about the weekend and we will be around on the forums to answer any questions that come up.

    More info here: http://services.runescape.com/m=devb...edium=nl&lc=21

    I don't know if that's sarcasm or whatever, but Runescape 2x XP is really nice :/

    OMG, I NEVER knew that double meant TWICE the amount! Hahaha, kidding. But yeah, I was a member for years and this never happened. Too bad I won't be a member now. I don't feel like putting more pressure on my bank account right now.

    Why bring up darkfall when this is CLEARLY a runescape thread. Get back on-topic and get over the fact that no one wants to play darkfall. People have their own tastes in games.

    You were on-topic at first but then you mentioned darkfall from no where. Which was totally pointless.

    Anyway, Runescape already has a pretty good player base so I don't think they need worry about that too much. Double exp is good though and it already isnt really that hard to level skills unless you're farming which I never really liked.

    Unbelievable. I played that game for 7 years and they never helped us out in the slightest. Probably trying to revive the game after their removal of Wilderness and Fair Trade.
    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
    Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing?
    Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing?
    Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing?
    Then why call him God?

    It was sarcasm, but not aimed at making runescape or anyone sound bad, just general lol.

    I agree, i wish when i used to play we had double EXP weekends, id at least have one 99 by now (or close to it)

    They're not giving back to the community or being a good company, they just want more money. They're encouraging players to train the skills they haven't trained.. There aren't many members who haven't trained all their member skills. They want F2P players to buy P2P and train their P2P skills. Just saying, jagex isn't trying to make our gaming experience any better.

    Wow....if you read on the site this is just a test and if all goes well it will be given to F2P people as well.

    And jagex ARE a company not a public service fool, so what if they encourage people to buy their product.

    If anything they ARE rewarding their paying cust****s by giving them first access to the bonus EXP weekends.

    Yeah, I kind of figured out the MMO industry quite a while ago. Thanks for sharing your thoughts though. :-)

    Silly sam, it all benefits their wallets one way or the other. If they give it to the F2P people as well, then surely people would start playing Runescape again thus increasing their chances of becoming P2P people.

    Yeah I'm cheap, spent 550 euro's from my paycheck to buy a better gaming PC. The fact with Dark Fall is that it's an utter fail.

    I enjoyed reading all of the 27 posts on this topic. I have played RuneScape everyday since I joined on May 1, 2005 and I have watched it improve. They made an error with the removal of the Wilderness PKing but they recognized their mistake and now they put it back into the game, same with the no limit trading. This is not the first time that they have held a double XP Week-end and the last time they held it, I received two 99 skill level capes. I plan to repeat that feat starting on March 11, 2011.

    Jagex makes a poll about the XP-Weekend.
    50% of the members were against another weekend.
    Jagex gives a bullshit bout their community and makes another one.
    Money > Community.
    Suck Jagex.
