I believe that, Jagex, did a greatly improve the interaction with the community indeed, as a company, community interaction is crucial to economic growth and improvement. EOC update must be the biggest update Jagex has done one, because they expect to get a ton of good feedback, and negative.
I am very impressed with how they meet us in the middle, old and new features to help us build the legacy updates, but we still keep these amazing graphics and interface.
As for issues such as dual wielding, etc., I’m sure they want to make any (huge) changes, because they have to meet the expectations of the players will be polled as possible, so I do not think you need to worry about that.
As long as us the player’s do our part in interacting and providing detailed feedback for them this could be one of the best updates and improvements RuneScape has ever had.
