  1. Feeling comfortable with something is practically the same thing as being accustomed to it. If you become habituated to something, then you eventually find it easy to use, even if you did prefer the old method.

     

    If you're a kid and you're learning to ride a bike, no shizzle it's going to be easier to ride with training wheels. Would some kids prefer training wheels to riding a bike without training wheels? Probably. Is there really a point in doing so once you're accustomed to riding without them? No.

     

    Same with this game. The old interface may have been easier to use than this one at first. But after an adjustment period, this interface will become second nature and you will become so adjusted to it that it won't really matter that it's slightly more difficult to use than the old system. Just grow with the game.

     

    Jagex does NOT have to bring back the old interface. It is simple as that. RS3 was not meant to be a groundbreaking change from RS2. It was meant to bring in new lore, and introduce HTML5/NIS. Right now we are simply debating the NIS, not the BOL or HTML5 because that is irrelevant to this argument.

     

    When you make an update and call it something as big as RS3, then that's essentially a new beginning. RS2 was a new beginning from classic and everybody who played it played the same game. You could not play classic in RS2 because that was the point of RS2; it was a new beginning. RS3 is the same thing. Everybody starts from this point again. It's a new beginning (again) in Runescape and you can't go back.

     

    HD/LD graphics exist because not everybody's computer has the specs to play on HD graphics. That's something you have to keep just to ensure that people can actually play the game. It is not a matter of visual appeal. It's to ensure everybody who has even a basic computer can play this game. That's why HTML5/Java will be a choice in the future.

     

    When it comes to the interface, you can play the game no matter what computer you use. It's not going to be affected by your specs that much. Keeping LD is a necessity. Old interfaces are not.

     

    I also do not care how long you have played and never argued that. I also did not debate your intelligence, because that is irrelevant. What I questioned is your willingness to give this interface a try for an extended period of time before complaining about it so much. Maybe a month down the line if you still have a problem with it, then go ahead and quit if it really affects your gameplay that much. But 2 days after this game has been released, you can't say you know everything about it and there's no saving it.


  2. My comment about the previous version of the game is about the fact the game gets updated and you have to deal with it. If you don't want to adjust to it, then quit. I'm not saying you're not allowed to.

     

    I'm simply saying quitting over something like the interface is very pretty silly. I don't think this system is frustrating enough to quit over.

     

    You asked for my opinion and I'm providing it. I'm not overreacting in my opinion. I do think you are though if you want to quit over the NIS. Then again, updates affect people differently. People quit over the Wildy/Free trade because they may have been pkers. But then again, you liked having it gone because you probably didn't mind it.

     

    Same with the NIS. There are some people who it affects more than others (you for instance) while most people will continue playing. It will eventually become second nature just like the last interface.

     

    Jagex has no reason to go use old interface. It's as simple as that. If you're going to make your primary update about the NIS, you're only going backwards by keeping the old one present.

     


  3. And as you say it yourself, "I liked the old layout, even though it is old as dust". You like the old layout because you're accustomed to it. It's getting outdated. If you really want to keep the old interface, there are many ways to do so. This new interface is almost completely customizable. This game was made for kids, not rocket scientists and all it takes is a few minutes of moving things here and there to make an interface that suits you.

     

    It's literally fully customizable. You either must not understand how to use it or just don't want to try.

     

    Naturally there will be some bugs as with all big updates but I'm sure they will be fixed. If you have a problem with something that doesnt work, stop complaining and make a point about it on forums. They have a NIS feedback section for bugs and glitches on RSOF.

     

    Find me any other online MMORPG that keeps old versions of the game for you to play. Jagex a keeps outdated versions of the game for you to play. Jagex at least put classic up and RS07 but let's be real. The only reason most people play those games is for nostalgia's sake.

     

    If we kept every past version of this game just so people could play it the way they liked, we would never get anywhere.

     

     


  4. Why are you still complaining about EOC. Just throw on Momentum if you really don't like it still.

     

    As for your 50%, I really don't think you did a big enough study to warrant that number.

     

    You just need to learn to adapt and move on. Everything changes. If everybody in the game complained about updates like you and your friends, this game would still be in Runescape Classic. Just imagine what happened when the switch from classic to RS2 was made.

     

    If your friends are really quitting 5 hours after what was essentially just an interface update, then they've probably played RS3 for all of 10 minutes after it was released.

     

    Nothing is being forced upon you. You still have the option to use momentum. You can use old-school interface (its just blue now...). You're overreacting.


  5. Unfortunately I've never heard of Firefly or Carvnivale but I'll definitely check both out
    /me slaps Doom around a bit with a large trout

    Well just looking at the description...Firefly is a "space western" which is something I've never heard of before but I'll definitely still take a look. :P


  6. game of thrones is fun fantasy, season 2 a bit less than season 1Fringe is a nice no brainer sf detective storyFirefly, if you haven't watched it yet you deserve a beatingCarnivale: a superb fantastic mystery storynote that I dislike sitcoms very much and thus don't suggest any :P

    I'm also not so much of a fantasy guy which is probably why Game of Thrones never appealed to me.

     

    Unfortunately I've never heard of Firefly or Carvnivale but I'll definitely check both out

     

    Nobody suggested Walking Dead? Gosh <_<.Season 3 begins in October, I believe. The first two should be easy to download.

     

    I actually used to watch Walking Dead, great show. I just need to catch up on last season. :P

     

    Impractical Jokers.You'll be laughing your tits off :P

    I've never heard of it but I'll take a look :)


  7. Darn I came here based on your entry title hoping for suggestions :(
    If you like cooking shows then I highly recommend Chopped. :P I started watching it a few months ago and I've been hooked.And I've changed the title to make it slightly less misleading.I tried watching Game of Thrones but it's just not for me. The whole fantasy and boobs thing doesn't work especially when it's like weird midget boobs and incestual.
    Chopped comes on all night long so it's a godsend for my sleeping trouble. I'll wake up at midnight, Oh chopped is on! Wake up at 2am, oh chopped is on! Wake up at 3 am, oh chopped is on!

     

    Chopped is just great. One time several of my friends tried to do our own version of chopped. Two of them gave us random ingredients: chicken breast, tortilla rolls, carrots, peach juice. We made peach marinated grilled chicken breast and an arugula and carrot salad with deep fried tortilla strips and balsamic honey and peach vinaigrette.

     

    If you watch Sons of Anarchy I guarantee you'll love it.P.S. Don't judge it off the first 5 minutes. It's in a dark room and in certain lighting it's hard to see.

     

    I'll certainly look into that.

    If you're looking for current TV show:Drama:Breaking BadMad MenComedy:LouieCommunityPeep ShowArcher

     

    I heard Mad Men and Archer are good. I saw a commercial for Louie and apparently it's very funny. And I already watch Community.
