We’ve been keen to keep on top of all the feedback you’ve been sending us regarding the Theatre of Blood, and with our most recent batch of changes, we’re really happy with how the content has evolved into the rewarding challenge it currently is. We have however also seen the increasing number of players want to access the Theatre, so today we’d like to present to you the Theatre of Blood: Entry Mode.As with all other poll focused Dev Blogs, we want to take some time to collate your feedback. The poll is due to go live in-game this Friday, 6th July, meaning there’s plenty of time to provide feedback!

When we first announced the Theatre of Blood at RuneFest we said it would be challenging, rewarding and emphasise on the need for teamwork. We’ve seen thousands of you complete the Theatre since it first released on the 7th June and whilst we’re extremely happy with how well received it has been, one of the largest pieces of feedback from everything we’ve seen on social media, your feedback in the recent surveys and the masses of you that watched on Twitch, is that aside from the small but impactful changes we’ve made to the Theatre of Blood, it’s very apparent that more of you want to be able to experience this fantastic piece of content the team have worked so hard on. We’re aware it can often be seen that these updates cater more specifically towards the higher-level portion of our community, and that those of you who are still working on building your characters and gathering your gear often miss out on exploring such great content.
Changing the Theatre of Blood in terms of difficulty and group size requirements now would be a heavy hit to those that have already spent hundreds of hours and thousands (more like millions) in gold to perfect their strategies, push for the fastest completion times and have their chance of the prestigious rewards currently on offer. Because of this, we don’t want to make any changes to how difficult or accessible the current Theatre of Blood is.
However, with the current average of around 1,500 unique players completing the Theatre per day, we felt it was worth exploring the options available to us that would make it possible for more of you to enjoy this content, not only from viewing it and seeing others complete it, but participate yourself.
Theatre of Blood: Entry Mode is not intended to devalue the time and money spent by those already tackling the Theatre of Blood and should not be seen as a replacement for the current 3 to 5-man teams that are confidently beating Verzik and gaining access to her treasure room in record timing. Our aim is to simply open the doors to those of you that may not have maxed combat or the ultimate gear setup, but still want to experience the type of challenge this content offers and hopefully train your skills, so when the time is right, you’ll be able to take on the full challenge of the Theatre with your newly developed teams.
