Connection lost… trying to reestablish

AquarianPixi is talking about getting "Connection lost… trying to reestablish" message during a battle. Indeed, it is one of the most dreadful messages you can get in Runescape. For me it is the most dreadful one. I can handle death, but I hate those awful seconds/minutes of reconnecting when I am absolutely helpless and don't know whether my character was able to hold his ground or not.

P.S. It might be a rhetorical question, but why so many players are upset with today's update? Yes, nature runes are likely to get cheaper, but not by a lot. Extreme Magic potion got nerfed a bit, was it that crucial? New powerful spells were added into the regular magic book - wasn't it a good addition? Finally, extreme potions are now allowed in safe minigames - yay!

I got 91 rcing a mere 3 days ago.

Sad times.

However I am happier overall - runes should go down in price (fingers crossed)

Runecrafting should just get an experience boost already, I mean seriously the experience is RIDICULOUSLY low.

I'm surprised RC hasn't gotten an xp boost already. If you look in the past year and a half, it's gotten GOP (not to be confused with the grand ol' party), and that's about it. Trees, stars, circuses have come out helping the tedious skills of WC & Mining and even Penguins giving xp of choice. I'm really surprised RC hasn't been given a distraction yet.

I'm sure everyone who's leveled the 'hard' way will be upset, and I totally understand that. Anyone who got high levels early in the game did it the 'hard' way. You linked to an article a while ago about how the game can only get 'easier.' I think this is a good example.

People complain too much. Prices will level off soon enough.

I agree with the comment on that dreaded message. I have not died in runescape in over a year and last week I was killed by a rev at the abyss all do the log out lost my Void, bandos boots, and berzerker ring all my fault I should be wearing anything when rc'ing in Edgeville. Bahumbug, oh well 600k until I can get my next berzerker ring.
