This week saw Jagex finally putting forth their plan to increase the price of FunOrb from £2/$3 to the new price of £3.20/$4.95. The new pricing, which went into effect earlier this week, will apply to new members, and existing members who let their membership drop for a certain period of time. I’ve taken a look at the reactions players have been giving Jagex, and would like to reiterate and respond to those issues; but in a way that is much easier to understand.
More after the break.
Here’s a look at the old, and the new, FunOrb Forums.
There’s been a civil war brewing in FunOrb, that’s simmered for the better part of the year, but has really escalated over the past few months. The ever going battle between members and free players over the three dollar difference in service. Read more…
It’s been a year, and after quite a while of neglect, I have to interject:
What does a guy have to do to get some FunOrb related rules around here?
Considering this is a FunOrb-driven website, a lot of my ideas for Thought Bubble have been inspired out of Jagex’s other child, Runescape.
In this week’s updates (I waited until the update was actually released to publish this), Jagex removed the Gnome Copters, a feature added in last year to give free players a glimpse of various members world areas. They also announced that Bounty Hunter, a pvp mini-game, would be retired in favor of a new version, citing the mini-game as temporary.
The idea of Jagex removing an unpopular piece from Runescape got me thinking; Could the same happen with FunOrb?
I apologize for the delay in the first weekly article. I had to take on a twelve hour shift today, the original four o clock release was pushed back to ten thirty.
It was a blessing though, because it gave me the idea for this week’s me to you discussion. Why are we so embarrassed to play Jagex’s products?
