Bonus Xp Weekend Wrap-Up
Posted 29 October 2012 - 12:19 PM
This is the first time that we've ever offered a flat rate of bonus XP - double XP for members - and the first time that we've opened up a Bonus XP Weekend to free players. All together, you clocked up an incredible 4,445,966 hours of game time over the weekend, and accumulated untold billions of XP. The level of devotion displayed for RuneScape over the weekend was truly staggering.
This level of activity was unprecedented, and at peak times some worlds experienced notable lag. The log-in servers also felt the strain, meaning that some users had difficulty logging in or switching worlds. While we kept everything running over the course of the 48 hours, we're aware that this was frustrating to those of you who were affected.
We'd like to apologise to anyone who had problems playing over the course of the weekend. In light of this, we're working hard to upgrade our server infrastructure, as well as further optimising our game systems.
Thank you again for your unmatched enthusiasm for RuneScape, and for your patience when there were technical issues. You can be sure that our next big game event will be better, smoother and more fun than ever before.

“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.”

The lag and login issues were frustrating though. I'm not sure what they were referring to with "during peak hours" because it felt like the entire weekend was encased in lag.

Was fun even with the lag issues.

Disappointed in my gains, had a lot more planned out, i was going to do agility but couldnt be bothered once it hit, ill probably regret that, but yeah, had a ton of plans to do and warned my girlfriend in advance (with a bribery of Forza) but alas, she still made nice fun filled plans of crap for us to do together instead.

I had more fun after it was over and I was able to concentrate on the holiday event and the Al Kharid quests.
