I remember after the past Runefest, many felt that RS3 did better than OSRS because it had bigger things on the slate. I am sure others would disagree with me, but ever since Runefest I anticipated 2020 for a slow season for OSRS gold and that has sort of been the case; we have a couple of decent-sized updates but nothing that major (unless you count the league, that will be fair).
I think what helps OSRS so much is the frequent polls and smaller and QoL upgrades. So even if not much is happening, it seems as though things is still occurring since there are polls and discussions.
Despite the pushback and also the back-peddling, it felt just like the two games did sort of transition into an expansion version of a few larger updates a year.
But looking ahead to 2021 as well as the release programs, it feels like OSRS has broken away from that and back to the older system of a lot of varying size updates even when they still do hype up the start of season, summer, and fall releases.(https://www.rsgoldfast.com/News/osrs-freeing-sir-amik-varze-guide.html)
Anywho, that was all a very lengthy and drawn out way for to say I think Buy Runescape gold is still focusing more on a few large upgrades, and without surveys and blogs at the openings, the focus instead is on the MTX promos making it feel much worse.
