All about SWC changes



If you need some clarity about anything mentioned in this news post, please leave a reply so we can clear it up for you smile


SWC: The Future


As you may be aware, Jagex has been more actively releasing DXPs throughout the year, and this has caused us to reschedule SWC a few times to avoid conflict with it. The staff team has been busy all throughout November to devise a more DXP-friendly SWC schedule for the future.

As such, we have formed a laid-back schedule to run SWC for the usual one week, once a month, on the second week of the month (except in cases where it coincides with a DXP). We would like to hear from our community on scheduling SWC events during a DXP month. Please fill out the form at the bottom of this post when finished reading.

SWC Seasons/Rounds Layout


There will be a total of 12 SWCs for the year, 2 seasons of 6 rounds each. We also have an alternative option of 3 seasons of 4 rounds each. We'd love to know which you prefer, as it's really all about our members! Our personal preferred layout is 2 seasons and 6 rounds, as you'll see below:


Season 1:
Skill group 1 (vote)
Skill group 2 (hat of doom)
Skill group 3 (vote)
Skill group 4 (hat of doom)
Skill group 1 (vote)
Skill group 2 (hat of doom)

Season 2:
Skill group 3 (hat of doom)
Skill group 4 (vote)
Skill group 1 (hat of doom)
Skill group 2 (vote)
Skill group 3 (hat of doom)
Skill group 4 (vote)


With the schedule illustrated above, here's some things to mention about it:
  1. Skills are divided into 4 different skill groups (Combat, Gathering, Artisan, Support) [see here].
  2. Per round there will only be the skills from ONE skill group featured for either voting on or for choosing by the hat of doom.
  3. There will be a guaranteed 3 skills done throughout the year per skill group. As usual, there will be no repeat skills, and Summoning, Invention, and Archaeology are exempt as possibilities.
  4. Each individual skill group will be pre-assigned as 'Skill group 1, 2, 3, and 4' and all four skill groups will be done before repeating over completely two more times.
  5. To prevent predictability, the skill group order sequence WILL NOT appear as shown above, but rest assured that no skill group will appear back to back.

We want to hear from you!


SWC is a big part of Surreal, and your feedback on it is an even bigger part. We have put together a short form for you which you can access via the button below.

All form responses get posted to the SWC Feedback thread, but regular replies are also allowed, so if you have additional thoughts, you can share them on that thread as well!

Form Submission Deadline: December 25th @ 23:59 UTC


(This will allow us time to set up SWC for the year)

I've tweaked the feedback form to include @Aurorae Auri's pro/con explanations (here) for both season/round choices.

I hope it's much more helpful to have it right there in the form for those who haven't yet filled it out smile

The form has been disabled, thanks to everyone who were able to fill it out, and thanks to those who provided additional thoughts smile

Although the form has been disabled, the SWC Feedback thread will remain open for at least an additional year, as we monitor changes made for 2021 with the help of our members smile
