Bring back Bounty Hunter craters with the following modifications

- Make it so that it can only ever be a 1 v 1 regardless of whether your target is on you or not

- Your damage on players resets when you leave the cave (to avoid penalty lures) + if you have not fought the player within the last 30 seconds, the damage is also reset.

- An indication of where your target is

- Penalty reduced to 120 seconds instead of the original 180

Feel free to add any further suggestions

My reason for bringing back BH craters. Apart from the clans doing their nonsense back then, it was an all round amazing PVP experience. From the penalties to being in an enclosed space, to the leader boards outside the craters. I remember only having fun in the craters (I was not part of a clan back then).

Thoughts?

Good question. Yes, it would be like the original BH craters, you would be allowed to leave if your target was on you.

There are several differences:

> The penalty - (Note that if you have a penalty, your protect item prayer doesn't work, even if you don't loot anything)

> The enclosed area

> Central crater pking is very risky once you've commited to a fight.

> The level difference that you are able to attack, (currently only in PVP worlds, not BH)

Amongst other things.

There was something about the craters that made your heart constantly pound. I don't get the same feeling from current PVP environments.

Have you tried BH craters before?

Question before I declare my support or not:

Would this work as it did historically, and be a replacement for PvP throughout the rest of the Wilderness?

In other words, would you disable PvP in the Wilderness except on PvP worlds and in the crater?

If yes, support. If not, no support.


I understand where you're coming from. However, in order to disable PVP in the wilderness, they would have to remove all updates that brought skilling and PVM to the wilderness excluding some historic sites (KBD, Mage Bank Arena, Runite rocks, Green Drags, Agility Course lvl 50+ wildy). Could potentially be done for certain worlds but I'm thinking it might be too much effort given other means of implementing BH craters.

But my point is, Bounty Hunter Craters were brought in as a responsive measure to free trade and pking being taken out of the game. Unintentional as it may have been, the PVP mechanics it offered were unlike anything the community had experienced in the game before. It was truly one hell of an adrenaline rush. I genuinely feel today's player base should be given the chance to experience it. It was just madness enclosed to a small area... and for the record, the crucible PVP mini game that came out shortly after died out pretty fast and had nothing on BH craters.

Thanks for posting.

They could rebalance them, instead.

Anyway, if this is just BHC in addition to the Wilderness, I don't see the point. The BHC was a replacement for the Wilderness.

I don't disagree. I just don't think it's necessary to have both.


Is it just me that feels like pking in the wilderness is becoming a dying part of the game? People say that BHC will only further disperse single pkers and the wilderness will be more scarce than it is now. While this is a possibility, I believe BH craters will bring more people to PVP than the wilderness has, not to mention how clans love to dominate the centre of the crater. The battle to rekindle PVP is ongoing, BHC was a part of the game that people loved and a lot of players took part in.
