I've been a bundle of emotions since I heard on the 'year ahead 2018' that there is going to be a new 'group ironman mode'
Personally, I don't think I am alone when I say that this not only cheapens those of us that have worked hard to get where we are at ON OUR OWN but well, frankly, totally destroys the purpose of the whole game mode!

It makes my brain melt to think someone actually OK'd this, or why they would have done it. (like, who are you and what were you thinking???)

Does someone out there happen to have an answer for this? As said above, the entire POINT of the whole mode is that there is NO TRADING, getting it all on your own!!!

Like....... I just don't understand? You want to trade, or like, boss with a few people...... MAKE A NORMAL ACCOUNT AND JUST DON'T USE THE GE. Don't force it upon those of us who were totally OK with a 'no trading' game mode when we signed up!

Seriously not cool to ruin an entire game mode because a select few people who didn't read the warnings on account signup.........

One of the ONLY things I liked about this game mode was well, people couldn't use trading etc to get ahead. You didn't have to be a stock-trading master to have ingame $$. Which is how it is going to be when this horrid update hits in the new year. Like I really, really like HCIM Runescape. I feel like a bit of a turd but I don't think I can continue playing a game and supporting a company who does this sort of things to loyal players.

And I mean, you don't care because you already have my money, so I guess I am just powerless. Only thing I can say is, I guess I had a good run and it was fun while it lasted. Bit pissed I paid for an annual membership unaware of this game-changing update. but F**k all of us right, we just $$$ to you ? ?? :(

I guess it comes down to this: will you be able to clearly differentiate ironmen who are truly doing everything on their own from group ironmen? If not, then yeah, I agree with your frustration.

Please calm down a bit, it's most likely an additional mode to play instead of replacing current systems. HCIM will remain HCIM, IM will remain IM, and group ironman mode will be group ironman mode.

I'd be extremely surprised if this would replace current systems.

I really hope that this is the case, and the original IM and HCIM modes will stay as they are.

Please remove Jagex, i don't like the fact that Group ironmen can trade between each other. the whole point was to do things on your own and that's why i created my ironman account.

it's a rather dumb idea to be honest and defeats the purpose of this game mode.

I think group Ironman is a realistic idea, in the sense that in medieval times I would have liked to keep a small group of friends close rather than just flat out be alone. But I fully understand if it infringes on the meaning and history of IM, it would screw a lot of people over.

I will be very upset if there is NOT a CLEAR differentiation between IM/HCIM accounts and the new Group Ironman accounts. Otherwise, I am fine with group ironman. Seems like fun.

Considering theres little to no reason for them to change with this update as the update itself isnt about the "normal" IM modes....

As someone who thought letting ironman accounts slay bosses with each other was one of the silliest updates of all time, I am absolutely positive that Group Ironman will be a separate gamemode from what we have available at present, and will be easily distinguishable. It's too huge an oversight not to be.

I might go ahead and make a Group Ironman myself; I like the idea of "shrinking down" the playerbase, as it were, and having brand-new markets that are subject to a completely different playstyle. In my head, it combines the best aspects of RSC -- the smaller community, and the higher value placed on skilling and "PvM" -- and RS3 -- the content, mostly -- together, which sounds like a really fun idea to me.

Who knows, maybe I'm dead wrong about it all, but the "easily distinguishable from present ironman game-modes that still can't be interacted with" thing seems like way too big an oversight to be the case when it's released. So I'm looking forward to it. ^_^
