Fuck, it's so good. I just recently (less than a month ago) came back. The new combat system is much better for the most part, though some things they changed are kinda meh. I've spent so much time playing it the last few weeks. It's like the ultimate loot/leveling-driven RPG to me.
I really wish I could continue to like Runescape, as I certainly have fond memories for the place, but for me that place has become so much less enjoyable in recent years. The endless focus on further monetization of Runescape without anything approaching the focus on expanding the game itself in recent years really depresses me, and I'm not fond of the me-too-ization of the combat system to make it even more samey. Runescape was always it's own thing, and I could at least respect that, but it seems that doesn't even apply anymore.
If there was less focus on cramming more ads and pretty graphics on the homepage, and more focus on actually expanding the lands and mechanics of the game, I might play it. But instead it's all about the double exp weekends and video ads, and not about continuing to build the game itself. The turning away from the meat and potatoes approach the game used to have turned me off of it entirely and I moved on. Endless monetization inevitably cannibalizes everything that was once good.
