I'm also great at spending money on games that I play irrespective whether its something that's F2P such as League of Leggos or something like RS3 or Destiny 2. So perhaps I have more subject than others and that is why it will not impact me or I am simply not grasping the total despise over MTX. MTX and schemes ruin the entire purpose of a game like Runescape. Work hard and reach the top, become the best, become the hero. It sucks balls should you skip past all that.
But how does the MTX genuinely effect you? Game integrity is taken. You go and no longer look at an achievement. "Wow. That person has got X." That really is a huge motivating factor for a lot of people. Just because it isn't shared by you, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Even Jagex themselves utilized to stand behind this. We don't want runescape players to have the ability to buy their way to victory in RuneScape. If we allow runescape players start doing so, it devalues RuneScape for others. We feel your standing in real-life should not affect your ability to become prosperous in RuneScape.
TH brings in currency and things out of the emptiness. What was once items and money that had to come in through some action from runescape players is injected straight from nothing. While you as an individual might not see it as a lot, you need to remember the thousands of runescape players employing daily keys and people actively purchasing secrets. It all adds up and further afield the economy. Many resource areas are locked behind particular abilities or quests (with skill reqs) and a part of growing access to these areas should be less competition as less individuals have attained accessibility. Arbitrary Joe's using a credit card can slip right in and audience the source area that someone legitimately earned. Fair? Hardly.
Those are just a few of those things that bug me. The simple fact that RS3 is just dipping into so many revenue streams at once and faking their hands are tied and they want that money to maintain runescape healthy is just a smack in the face.The thing of personal accomplishment includes the journey that each runescape player should experience, and having somebody skip the trip because it is'grinding, repetitive, etc.' Cheapens mine and everybody else's journey as being somehow boring and not fun, if you have to pay cash to bypass this journey.
