Mod Arcane programming his first job with the OSRS team

Posted By Amerz one     September 6, 2020    

Body

I feel like when they structured it at the specific same manner as RS3 has (Pre-wars retreat because its waaaay too OP) with maybe some different rewards or improvements to already existing gear/slayer related stuff it'd work good OSRS gold, such as imbues for leafbladed gear, possibly an extra ban/extend slot for jobs afterwards so long etc may even go as far as to increase the duration of item degrades and pots by just 5 percent, nothing too OP but stuff that could still make it worth doing. I really hope they just refuse it and he learns that he can't simply dev what he needs, but what the community as a whole wants.

Tbh though some of it is really good but the bigger image was not believed, which is usually true with new devs. In a great deal of cases they look past a lot of obvious nerf alternatives to balance it (in RS3 the helm doesn't function on boss master jobs for example that would balance things or just to provide one job per week or you need to buy tasks for 50 points or something limited to one per day and the helm is allowed) and they could not have bothered with boss teleports and a lot of the tertiary stuff as the osrs community is best with slim and non-revolutionary upgrades which are then enlarged on based on community feedback.

This is but a bad dev arrangement however, they ought to have had him working under somebody about the wilderness boss rework rather than changing the most popular skill in RuneScape as his first job. Agreed, slayer is an OP money maker and combat training method (or guess properly powered) so meddling at all should be done by people nearer to RuneScape and community. I am pretty sure it's seen as a learning experience for him of being effective at adjusting his raw concept to something community could actually vote or see the outcome of the polls.

There is not any way he did any of this without explicit consent from on top. It's not like they simply told him to get cracking and they'd poll whatever. Yeah, he probably got encouraged to direct developer for indicating porting RS3 content and SLAYER. I don't think a new mods first job should be on something that can/will impact RuneScape in such a large way/scale. At least not with a shit ton of oversight and babysitting (and that point whats the stage, just set a experienced dev on it), that obviously has not happened.

As disrespectful as it was, his leash for his very first job shouldn't have been given so much slack. He should not have been okayed to perform something that affects a lot of RuneScape to this level. Whoever over saw him neglected by allowing this to come this far. We should not have noticed this, it should've been stopped if he purposed it as a concept to them. Has such a radical impact on RuneScape. Zero thought was put into the long-term effects it'd have by this new dev. When he did, it definitely wasn't enough and he definitely doesn't understand enough. The OSRS team understands better. Or thought they did.

Or perhaps this is an OSRS group hazing in the place where they allow the community to destroy the hopes and dreams of a brand new mod. It's like children and their parents, sometimes things have to be learned the hard way. C'mon, give me something for RC which doesnt need me developing carpitunel to level.

It was fascinating hearing that the rationale is that players dont want to be"forced" to do turael slayer simply to search for boss tasks. Obviously he has a great deal of game experience, but he's catering to the extremely niche playerbase with that line of reasoning. And Jmods should stop saying"Do not fire us for the blog, its us gathering feedback" There have been dozens of surveys where they fall a site with survey questions tagged on in the end, then the content becomes polled as is without listening to feedback until after it neglected the survey. Its a valid concern that they will survey it without revising the material. Imo it just needs to not be tied to the slayer helm dps enthusiast, also its a workable part of content.

I really don't think a new mods first job should be on some thing that can/will impact RuneScape in such a large way/scale. At least not with a shit ton of oversight and babysitting (and there whats the point, just set a seasoned dev on it), which cheap RuneScape gold clearly hasn't happened. As disrespectful as it was, his leash for his very first job shouldn't have been given so much slack. He shouldn't have been okayed to do something that affects so much of RuneScape to the degree. Whoever over saw him failed too by enabling this to come this far. When he purposed it to them as an idea we should not have seen this, it should have been stopped. Has a drastic impact on RuneScape. Zero thought was put into the long term effects it'd have by this new dev. When he did, it wasn't enough and he definitely doesn't understand enough. The OSRS team knows better. Or thought they did.
