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?

Could you leave the crater if you were being attacked by your target? If so, whats the difference between the BH we have now and BH craters?

The craters are only designed for max combat players.

ie ; There were 3 craters last time, < = 55 combat, < = 100 combat & < = 126 combat.

Long ride from 55 - 99/100 combat.

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.
There'd be no need for 3rd party clients if the default one was decent. I vote no to all non-PvP Wilderness updates, and yes to all PvP Wilderness updates. If you want to revive the wilderness, encourage players to PvP, not lure them to the Wilderness to be victims.

Just because you don't like PvP doesn't mean it should be disabled.

If you want PvP out of the wilderness then you have to be fair and get rid of every single skilling item and activity in the wilderness, not move somewhere else... completely remove from the game every single non-combat related item and activity in the wilderness.

And if you don't well then that's just selfish and would 100% cater to all the easy scapers...especially that chaos alter and fountain of rune.

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.
