Typical Jagex - not a word why F2P hiscores are suddenly back after more than 2 years.

Of course one can always speculate why.

Hmm,

it looks like RS lost about 400k players from 1.5 mil to 1.1 mil.
So there were 400k players using the free 2 week member trial
and they didn't subscribe after the trial?

The worlds are still not crowded? You have the same number of member's
worlds as in November and almost three times the amount of players.

80k new members in 6 days! Wow! In 6 months (182.5 days) that would mean
about 2.4m new members. Unbelievable - literally.

They have posted a lenghty FAQ about the update. Here is only a part of it:

Is this another way of Jagex getting more members or something?

Someone at Clan Leaders forum asked how this will affect clan hiscores.

I'm pretty disappointed at hiscores becoming members only.

15-Nov-2011 - Coming Next Week: New Website!

We’re proud to present advance details of our completely overhauled website,
which will launch at next week’s update, with loads of new features and a
community-editable wiki at its core!

As announced and shown in November’s Behind the Scenes, the website will
have a distinctive new look, including a brand new RuneScape logo, a darkly
cool colour palette and a thorough re-structuring of the front page, putting
up-to-the-minute information to the fore.

One exciting addition is an all-new Events section, where our Community teams
will be able to advertise events and direct you straight to them with ease, using
integrated calendars, mark-able maps and a wealth of other fantastic features.

The news section, in particular, has been streamlined, with increased prominence
on the page, and the integration of other news sections. Dev Blogs, for example,
no longer hide behind the main news feed and can be seen right alongside other
news articles.

The old manual has been transplanted into a new, wiki-based format and will form
the core of the new website. With the exception of a few key pages maintained
solely by Jagex staff, these pages can be edited, and visual assets can be uploaded,
by RuneScape account holders who meet certain baseline requirements. In you,
we have an amazing community, from those with a decade of RuneScape experience
and knowledge to fresh new faces, and with this change we’re empowering all of you
to pool that RuneScape nous for the community to use.

We’ve made these changes, and a whole range of others, to make the new website
a slick, convenient resource for the whole RuneScape community, but you’ll have to
wait until next week to see the finished result!

The RuneScape Team






In Other News...

- Along with the release of the new website, we will be making hi-scores a members-only feature.

This is for a number of reasons, but the main one is to keep them fresh. We want
the hiscores to feature players who will compete with each other, tooth and nail,
for hiscore glory. There are many dormant accounts within the hiscores that have
not played for a very long time, and this will give new arrivals in Gielinor a shot at
hiscore fame alongside the grizzled veterans on equal terms for all.

We want the hiscores to reflect the full range of content that RuneScape has to offer,
and hope that they will be a big draw to the full, members’ game for those interested
in high-level RuneScape competition on a level playing field.

- We’re pushing back the Wilderness graphics update mentioned in Behind The Scenes,
so it’ll no longer be out in November. We’re sorry about this, but it‘s necessary in order
to schedule in some of our upcoming anti-bot measures.
