They're so stinking two faced it's actually sickening.

I guess now we no bot nuke had nothing to do with caring about the players. They just wanted to get rid of the competition.

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

you won't get anything good from the squeel so why would you buy spins

They know little kids will beg their parents for money to buy the spins, its a scam overall to be honest and people will fall for it, I will go as far as people spending over $200 on this trash.

It smacks of irresponsible trading. Prior gambling in rs that was player orientated was not a good thing but at least it remained within the game and money lost was of the pixel variety... I never saw it as an 'all bad' scenario either as it gave a valuable life lesson for those that found their banks cleared through gambling or being scammed.

Encouraging a predominantly young target audience to pay for spins with actual currency is encouraging real life gambling and is profiting from those still learning about consequences regarding finance.

Not much else I can say.

Oh, an apparent quote from Timbo that is floating around the rsof:


"It's not gambling though as you cannot lose while spinning on the Squeal including the fact that you cannot win real life monetary value from the Squeal either (no membership or IRL money is offered as a prize).

Timbo "

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL. Especially them giving 35 bonus spins for buying the 40 spin pack. Seriously? That's atleast 20 medium lamps from my spins, and thats a good 750k exp. I wouldn't doubt it if Suomi bought like 500.

E: I thought jagex didnt like suicide or gambling? cause they just did both, tehe.

Rsof is almost literally exploding with pure hatred for this update...I'd venture to say it's worse than when the wild was taken away.

Finally, soon you will also be able to earn free Squeal spins as rewards for completing any quests. The team are working hard on this feature, and we expect to be able to provide it to you before the end of April.
Imburse those who've already completed every quest? :evil:

Don't even need credit card information to pay for the spins, it uses saved information (i've been told)

Seems dumb as hell, but from their side its brilliant way to make some extra money

If you get hacked and you use credit card you might be for a world of hurt

The Squeal of Fortune isn't really that big of a deal. Yeah, buying 1k spins may be like a billion xp/h and im sure there will be THAT ONE GUY who actually does it, but only a handful of people will actually buy that many spins. It doesn't ruin the game - While admitedly it does somewhat damage the integrity, but then again we all have access to plenty of ways to get free spins so its not really unfair.. It just seems like a very miniscule problem. Personally, I feel like skills being useless and pking being almost completely broken are bigger issues than this. I see why people are upset, but I really don't think it will have a huge impact.
