[00:04] Oldschool RuneScape - Minigames and the Wilderness
[00:08] This month, Old School BTS talks to Mod Mat K about updates to slayer,
[00:12] the Wilderness and the results of last month's poll on minigames.
[00:17] Last month's poll was mini games.
[00:18] We gave players an opportunity to vote on all sorts of areas of mini games to improve their gameplay.
[00:23] The players voted in a matchmaking system as well as some new armour for Castle Wars
[00:27] and the guys have been working hard to get that into game.
[00:30] The two biggest changes for the mini games are going to be with Castle Wars and Barbarian Assault.
[00:34] Castle Wars are getting some new armour, they're getting some mage armour and they're getting some range armour to tie in with the melee armour they already have.
[00:41] Barbarian Assault are getting a whole load of quality of life updates to make it easier to progress through the mini game.
[00:46] And of course both mini games take advantage of the matchmaking system.
[00:50] Now we know what players want from their mini games,
[00:52] it's time for us to look at the next poll and the next poll is about remaking the wilderness.
[00:56] PVP's really popular, we know players love to kill each other in the wilderness
[01:00] and we want to make the wilderness a really popular and vibrant place for them to do it.
[01:03] We've pulled loads of ideas from the players for how we're going to rejuvenate the wilderness
[01:07] and we're going to make it really great place.
[01:09] We're looking at updating all areas of the wilderness, we're looking at working on brand new group bosses, brand new solo bosses,
[01:15] reworking the rewards of the existing content, putting in new monsters, putting in new resources,
[01:21] there's a whole of things players will be able to vote on.
[01:24] The wilderness update is going to be huge so we're still collecting ideas from the players
[01:28] but when we're ready the poll will be available in the usual place which is on our website.
[01:32] We'll be delivering the update throughout February so from then players will find it even more fun to kill each other in the wilderness.
[01:38] Also throughout January we're going to bring in a whole load of Slayer updates.
[01:41] We've got the slayer helm coming, we've got slayer points, we've got a new dungeon,
[01:45] we've got two new slayer monsters and two new bosses all coming to Old School.
[01:50] What's great about Slayer this month is that players are going to have so much more control over what they go and kill
[01:54] and where they go and kill it. And how they kill as well.
[01:58] Players are going to be able to block tasks they no longer want to have,
[02:02] they're going to be able to use brand new equipment like the slayer helm to go out and kill the monsters with,
[02:06] and they're going to be able to go to a brand new dungeon to be able to take them on as well.
[02:11] Anyone who's interested in what's coming up in February, head over to the forums
[02:14] and have a read of our dev blog of what's happening in 2014 and let us know what you want to see.
[02:20] To keep up on latest old school developments including the team's plans for 2014,
[02:24] the guys have now got a blog for your reading pleasure.
