Bro, you clearly did not read shit. Nor did old school rs gold you assess what Jagex pays or what Salaries in Cambridge place for software development are. Those"growth" prices already cover all the programmer's salary and you are left with over 30m for some other things. Jagex doesn't run any servers of their own (except a few in-house small ones possibly ). Everything they rent in. AWS storage servers cost approximately 1-2 cents per GB of storage (monthly). A computing servers go from 40 cents/hour into 26 USD an hour (heavily area-dependent as well). And most of us know Jagex doesn't have most powerful servers (considering each world is maximum 2k runescape gamers I doubt they are very strong ones at all).
Let's assume their one server lease costs 10 GBP/hour. That is a year one server, under 90k. Let us push it to 100k. But let's say Jagex has 150 servers leased. Every year 15m belongs (which actually is not that high, since I took pricing out of compute-oriented server that's chiefly used for scientific calculations, machine learning, etc). More use instance that is average has pricing about half of the if not less. Think Jagex has building, therefore let us say 5m/year.
15m left for all else. What bothers me is how much they spend on"development" but we aren't getting shit. Mod MTX maintained they can not give runemetrics expert to highest members because it is too expensive. WTF nibba? You bill like what for this thing? Are you telling me you store 200GB of information per client over? Fuckin' joke.
I'm trying to be positive about it, and I think to buy runescape 3 gold before they have a chance to make their 28, it's important not to go. However the items I'll truly think from them are executed changes as they've done on these contentious problems within their background with just about every promise, and then I'll be wary of these fast slipping back to old customs. While I could understand the notion of employing a stream feeling more open and direct I do stress somewhat that flows and discussions naturally come with much more qualifiers and an awareness of opinion, making the statements less concrete and formal than when they were a written statement.
