Does anyone agree that some of the most iconic and useful places like Daemonheim, pest control and soul wars should be brought back to life? I would really love to see an update that gives this places the spark they need to come back, not only for the fun they give (huge battles in soul wars and raiding the dungeons) but also for the great rewards (Superior void e.g). Other places like Barbarian assault, clan wars, fist of guthix and other minigames should be given a chance back.

What do you think about it?! :P

Minigames will continue to be dead until the rewards given outweigh the time it takes to earn them.

That is to say, as long as people need the rewards, they'll be alive.

What happens after the "revival"? Four weeks later and it'll stay just as dead as it was before.

unfortunatly in RS3 society Minigames are EXP waste to them now days. no one plays runescape for fun anymore. community in RS3 is way too competitive and might dox those
who do not play with high effiency of money or exp in the name of the elite. yet I do miss playing castle wars back in the day. at the moment if you want active minigames, go play old school for time being. (I yet to start getting active on OSRS at the moment)

Whilst I exp waste in Priff lode as I please in W83 or do a bit of money making of my own like gathering skills method which is my favorates hope I do not get butchered by exp/gainz police :p.

(I dont mean to be off topic but RS3 needs more advertisement)
My goals

Solak, AoD, Telos, and even some of the next tier down (Araxxor, et.cetera.) are all not-dead, long past 4 weeks post-release time. I don't see why Minigames couldn't do the same, if they have worthwhile rewards, obtainable through active gameplay.


As long as they come from Minigames which have a Player v Game aspect, then there's no reason why the Minigames can't give out top-tier gear, linked to it (behind hard enough requirements, of course). It may even be possible to have such things come from Minigames that are more PvP, but getting a system that can't be manipulated easily, would likely take a lot of effort, and be subject to bugs; that's no reason not to add such things to PvG Minigames.

The Great Orb Project is a prime candidate, as it has ready-made PvG (or PvO) elements, within it, in terms of the number of orbs scored, and playing it with proficiency is extremely challenging (even more so, in teams), every bit as much as Bossing.

I'll happily redact that, if you can solve the following puzzle, on first go (even though it's a simple one, and it's not in live-play, and it doesn't involve having to bear in mind positional-potential, nor orb potential; I won't even require dead-streaming to be used, even though that's by far the most difficult maneuver to master):



The white dot is the player, the yellow dots are the orbs; the aim is to score all 3, in as few tiks as possible, noting any actions taken, on a tik-by-tik basis.
Assume a standing start.
Assume this is on a P2P server, with all unlocks obtained.
EoC-mode.
Use the centre tile of the altar as (0,0) coordinate.
