- Intro -


Many people, including myself, were very enthusiastic about not having the G.E. This was the case when OSRS had just been launched.

I had a lot of fun with buying and selling goods south of the Varrock west bank and competing with other players on the Zybez RS forums.

A precious memory that I would like to share with you about that time:

I played osrs from the day of release and soon found a gap in the market: selling quest kits. I spent many hours collecting all necessary items for RFD and Dragon Slayer. Then I sold those quest kits for about 30k each in Varrock. This (together with running nats) is how I made my first millions in the first week of OSRS.

- Success has already been proven -


Prior to osrs, private servers such as Project RS06 and 2006Scape were extremely popular. These illegal copies of rs did not have a G.E. but could nevertheless exist and enjoy popularity.

- Proposal -


Assign a couple (2 for example, P2P/F2P) worlds which will be the original copy of OSRS (February 14, 2013). This means without any updates but with the bugfixes that came afterwards.

Players will have to create a new account and can enjoy a brand new economy where they will have to find other players to trade with.

This idea is not to be confused with suggestions like group ironman etc. It would just be the osrs that many people were expected to get when they voted for it back in the days.

This whole suggestion could perhaps lead to a pilot experiment to see if there is enough interest from the community. Financially it is not risky for Jagex because all content is already there.

Maybe writing this thread is a waste of time, but maybe not! Only time will tell. I'm curious about your opinions and please let me know if this idea is something you would support. If not, constructive criticism is also welcome.

Nah man. No one except 20 people want it, it's not sustainable and it isn't practical or easy to implement. People will get bored after 2 months of it and it'll be dead content. Learn to play osrs or move on. I don't suggest doing so but there are private servers which have the content you want. Use at own risk. I love to say this, it will never ever pass and its laughable that you select few are so salty that you'd want dead content. Jagex should fix existing content such as resource drops, making skilling great again and balancing pvm rares.

Sincerely, an OSRS vet since 04.

@ Karaboudjan

Support.

@ XIRang3mag3I

Most things pass the polls anyways. Also, how do you know that only 20 players would play on it if it has not been released yet? I think if Jagex actually banned bots in OSRS Vanilla unlike what they did with Runescape Classic and added a link for OSRS Vanilla on the OSRS homepage, it could potentially be more popular than Runescape Classic was.

Also, you have to remember that Runescape had more players in the 2007 era of Runescape than it did in the 2001 to 2004 RSC era of Runescape.

I think you are generalising too much.

I don't know for sure that it would pass the polls but nobody will truly know until it is polled. :)


Yeah exactly, then why do people jump to conclusion so quickly.

And idk why you're getting your protein from papajon's alts.

RSC traditionalists and Pre-GE RS2 traditionalists have our differences but...

Runescape Classic players have no official RSC game to play anymore. Pre-GE RS2 players have no game to play anymore. If there is one thing that most RSC traditionalists and pre-GE RS2 traditionalists have in common, it is that they both dislike the Grand Exchange. Jagex has an opportunity to merge these two groups of players together by making Vanilla OSRS. :)

Always the same few people asking for this, this is no different than static server supporters.

There just isnt enough support for them to do this.


Also the majority wanted GE, even the DMM world wanted a GE and there like 20-30 people on that world most of the time.

no point in wasting Jagex time with something a few want.


Learn to live with it and if you cant then maybe its time for you to become a ironman or move on.
