The death of Guthix was the transition from largely grounded medieval RPG to enormous bombastic fantasy components and, while plot-wise it will work with his death bringing the gods back and, the worldbuilding was increasingly of an abysmal mess ever since. Dwarf Cannon came out in'03. Cave Goblin electricity has been canon since'07. To be blunt, this"mostly grounded medieval" OSRS Gold you talk of has not existed for the majority of RuneScape's life.It was (largely ) thematic, but then at some point they just said"fuck world building" and, like you said, turned it into a theme park.
It's a pity since they know it will sell for snowflakes to stand out, they put all kinds of shit out. That's why that bastard success banner is present when not a single individual in RuneScape beyond the buyer gives a shit about it. That's why Drakes exist, something enormous to have peoples attention that's not screaming like the banner. And that is why they're not going to apply anything unless they make it something which hides the gamers, to hide makeup. Which will induce half people see crap and to play without it on. Over half match the theme, of the makeup have nothing to do with RS, or perhaps look great.
"Desire to meet investor needs" is definitely not the driving force behind their pick within their art. MTX as a whole would be for investors' fascination but the art behind the MTX is geared towards what actually sells. In essence, their desire is to make what they feel will the players from the gamers themselves, ergo selling more of it the most. Investors won't really care what they look like. Not saying I'm against cosmetics. I am fine with money being made by them as long as it's not things exclusive to TH. Just pointing out the motives may not be what OP thinks.
Halloween and santa Hats Masks? I don't think so. Outfits are meant to make players feel and look different. Wearing my Santa Hat or Halloween Mask thematically has nothing to do with with runescape 3 gold at all either.i mean, santa's got a pretty prolonged lore ingame, what with his entire family and all being canonical characters and everything.I concur but argue RuneScape's planet has random silly characters and events that occur in quests ect apart from the"Important lore material".
