Poor word choice from Lou, of course we can turn it off at any time (which will definitely not be months). 
Actually quite some work went into the winter edition but 85% of the time in total spent on this update went towards a client rework not xmas. 

We just thought better late then never :)

nothing new since 2018 only added bosses are hydra and vorkath since then, and instead of added more real content you wasted time so we can throw snow balls and rotten tomatoes and morph into a fucking monkey... jesus christ

Actually since 2018 we've rewritten a lot of underlying systems that all of our content depends on. Also the game engine and networking has been rewritten to be more stable and efficient.

Now all of the essential engine work is nearing completion we're going to be focussing on fixing all the currently implemented content and meanwhile also work on some smaller (but still enjoyable) content.

Firstly I would like to thank you Lou and the developerment team for taking your time in making this update and giving the community a lot of new things to look forward to. I noticed you've fixed a lot of bugs regruading them being bugs for a while and of course it's always stressful for you guys to fix it so it's 100% because that's what you want isn't it for your Server, specially for the Community to know you care (proven here). Anti Botting caching system is great, I've come along a few players who bot/marco and of course it isn't fair on players who/do their stats/banks legit. Commands interface is so much more cleaner and looks tons better than the old one, defiently needed, always good to know what the actual command does before pressing enter. Christmas event, personally I don't agree with it being put into the game when it's already January. I understand the update took you guys a long time to sort out and make it but it just shouldn't of been inplanted in-game at this time. Emptying the Blowpipe is a great feature to have always had players asking me why they can't remove said items from "Blowpipe". Let's hope the client rework and overhaul is finally a lot smoother now to what it was, never is nice lagging/nulling time to time, "buffer strategy" 1+ of course, who wouldn't want faster rendering, let's hope it's 100% fixed now. Overall I would give this update a good soild OKAY, 8/10, thanks again for all the work you've put into the update, I'm sure the players will be pleased with it!
