@Grim Raccoon - I have been a member for more than twelve months and did sign up for the combat beta before it was out yet i still cannot play on it, it says 'Your account has not currently been selected to participate in the EoCB' |
PS - awesome name
|Why can't I play on Beta? I know that I didn't sign up, so I had to wait. But it's saying that all members are allowed to play after the 6th of July, and I still can't play?|
|Yes, I've been having trouble as well. I was able to play on the beta after july 6th, but after returing to, "Real Runescape", i decided to go back to the beta to try out some mage, but i discovered that I was unable to log in due to the fact I am no longer able. Darn, was looking forward to playing some more.|
Magic is too overpowered in beta. and it was already overpowered. Removing Ice spells for ancient magicks will do it a little. because people use that spell to lure people, and in pk and clan wars mages are very powerfull because they freeze people so they can't hit them and then they farcast till their target is death. horrible. horrible. horrible.|
Many people quit runescape if i read all these messages by the way. maybe a idea to not do this update??
Goodbye Cruel Runescape.
|You can use ice spells right now, so why wouldn't you be able to use it in the Beta?|
|When I equip my rune ax and I chop trees, it shows on both my back and in my hand, could you fix this for just the hand? Makes it look more realistic. I don't have two axes xD|
|I tried to log on to the beta and it says all members will have access july 6. im a member and its july 13.. ???????? help|
Just a quick heads up to people who can't log back in:|
The beta is available to all members from the 6th July onwards, however members only have access to the beta on the >weekends< if they weren't invited to it otherwise.
Now for my thoughts on the beta;
First of all I'd like to start by saying this beta certainly is a massive change and I can see that Jagex has put quite a bit of effort into making this happen, however I and many other players believe Runescape is losing its originality and the action bar interface always reminds me out of something from World Of Warcraft or Guild Wars, which I don't really like, never the less, it is a nice addition to Runescape; I just hope Jagex can keep it original and not 'go with the trend'; being different is a good thing.
I'd also like to point out that there are many errors in the beta, however this is a BETA after all and the purpose of them is to test and find any bugs to fix, It will not be 'perfect' in any way, not until it's closed and Jagex have more time to work on it.
My conclusion is I believe Runescape has been needing a change, and the beta will certainly bring that change to us. Jagex have worked hard on this and we all know that with this much effort, the chances that they won't go through with it are very low; they are serious about this update. Personally I like the beta, and once jagex have fixed all the bugs I think the community will eventually settle into it nicely; more abilities would be nice though!
However I'd also like to touch on the way they chose people elected for the beta, I don't believe it was fair and many people are missing out - I've seen 5 year + veterans not being elected to participate, but people with almost new accounts have; maybe you can pick people with more experience next time. Anyway that's my little speech for now, I hope you guys end up reading this.
Goodluck Jagex and I hope this update brings the best for the Runescape community
|Jagex is ruinning runescape by the combat beta because its a p.o.s... It looked cool at first but looks can be deciving.|
I tried the Evolution of Combat Beta for the first time last week and I loved it. It still needs some work, but I love the essence of it.|
First off, what I loved most about it is the custom keys. Not only can you configure about ten keys, but you can configure five sets of them.
I dig some of the new abilities. I love Massacre and like Sever. I like that I can Surge forward, leap back, and magic teleport ahead ten meters. I'm working on the distancing, but when I distance it right I kill a Frost dragon and Surge forward to the next one! I hope to perfect my skill at that and make a Dance with the Dragons Video.
I can't wait to be pressing keys when fighting Nex so that I don't have to take my eyes off her when potting, eating, or changing prayers.
Suggestion 1(to Jagex): make the arrow keys customisable.
The purple damage recovery splat is great to see. Knowing how much an opponent healed is going to be handy.
Seeing a monster's weekness is cool.
I found that "Saradoming godsword special" ability cool. I forget what it's called, Resonance or something. It's the ultimate that heals over 6 seconds. That is neat. That would be good for certain slayer task.
Having to scroll between the customizable ability bar configurations is slow.Give the ability bar configurations each some space to click them to select them aswell.
Another feature I admire is the status effect area now in the special Weapon attack style menu. It's handy.
