Does anybody else here think it was neat how Jagex was able to successfully mix the pre-EoCers with the Pre-Grand Exchangers by adding the Grand Exchange to the game for the pre-EoCers and adding Ironman mode for the pre-Grand Exchangers? I think we are a stronger game community because of this. Does anybody else agree with me about this? :)

It used to be a binary scale of old schooler vs Pre-EoCer but no longer is. Anyone who thinks that way is severely outdated. It's more of everyone with their own interests thinking for themselves such as ironmen and PvMers wanting broken drop tables with zero risk, PKers wanting what's good for game integrity, skillers wanting risk-free easily farmed or botted content, etc. This brings me to my point. I think our community is even more isolated now than ever and it's only getting worse.

What caused this, you may ask? The answer is quite simple. The GE and its efficiencyscape mindset.
I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

But...the GE was around in 2007 which OSRS was based off?


So was the removal of the wilderness and free trade.

Actually, those are really 2008. The ge was added a month before those were done so people could learn how to use them. They were added at the very end of 2007. Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

What in the world is ironman supposed to do for people who didn't want the GE? You can't trade. People who don't want the GE still want to trade, they just dislike the utter destruction of community and MMO feeling having to physically trade yourself gave. Not to mention any price manipulators couldn't manipulate while they slept, they had to be logged in like the rest of us

Don't forget bot dumping.

I would enjoy some kind of mode where GE isnt allowed and you can only trade with other people that dont use GE. Like a Group ironman but in group with thousands.

Would revive Varrock West and falador parks, and keep others happy with GE.
Remember, you are here for ever.
