When one eagle-eyed RuneScape player saw that the studio was polling players about potentially purchasing skill levels in a recent survey, it set off a firestorm within the community. However, it doesn’t seem as if the team was truly considering this as a future option.
“Don’t panic!” Jagex’s Mod Balance posted in the comments. “It’s not being considered though. The question is intended to look at the attitudes of the cross-section of players surveyed in relation to ‘buyable levels.’ We have no plans to add this.”
