The biggest problems:

-GE without a tax, a tax could help fix this problem and encourage people to choose how to trade. 10k + 1% per purchase means players would either need to pay up or go get the supplies themselves for questing.

-Lack of dangerous randoms damages integrity with auto clickers becoming viable again.

-NMZ and Splashing.

-One of the worst offenders.. where is the risk? What happened to death mechanics?

-Catering to Ironmen shouldn't be a thing.
LUL you just want death mechanics to go back to being two minutes so you can camp dangerous bosses, wait for the person to die and loot their things without doing any work. L2pvm and l2soloraids nubnub

"RS1 has been renamed to RS-Classic and moved to it's own separate section. This will be brought back online later today if everything goes to plan.
This is being kept as a bit of history so people can see what the game used to look like, and for players who prefer a simpler non-changing game.
Take a look at the RS-Classic pages for more details." - Jagex in 2004

This is why either Runescape Classic should be brought back online or give us Vanilla OSRS to compromise the jewel of history that was lost on August 10, 2018, Runescape 1. Rest in peace, my friend. :(

This. Failures who afked dark crabs to 200m fishing xp saying that they'd start PvMing after they finished 200m xp and then started afking rune dragons after that calling that PvM don't deserve a say really.
I haven't clicked on any phishing links and as a result, I haven't gotten hacked. Git gud nubnubs.

I kind of agree and disagree. I believed OSRS needed updates so it wouldn't die, but it's honestly not the direction I hoped they would go in.

Skilling is dead content, the only reason to skill is if you like it, to do something chill/afk, or for total levels or quests. No one skills for money anymore. Woodcutting is like 100k an hour at best and it used to be one of the most popular money making skills.

Giving resources to PvM drops was a mistake. High level PvM shouldn't be about profit per hour in random drops. It should be rewarding for sure, but it should be more about the rare drops rather than consistent profit from resources.

Plus, what the hell is up with dragon claws & the GE? i went on hiatus when those updates come out so I missed the excitement, but from what I remember everyone was so against those two updates especially. The community has changed a lot since OSRS first came out.


Agree on everything but the OSHD toggle.

You get more resources from pvm drops than skilling
Because you have to actually put resources in to get those drops in the first place. There's risk involved, higher requirements, it requires more attention than skilling, and is just more satisfying to do than left clicking a tree, or a rock, or a pool of fish and waiting for your inventory to fill up.

PvM also tends to give a wider variety of resources, while skilling allows you to be less efficient overall while more efficient in a particular area. Blast Mining, for example, will get you a lot of ore, and while you could be doing PvM to get more resources generally, you'd very likely get less ore specifically

slayerscape updates galore
That's no surprise. It's the most popular skill. A Slayer update is likely to affect the most people, making them most worth doing.

It encompasses all three combat styles and offers opportunities to bring in new items and content.

If you don't want Slayer updates, vote no. Unsurprisingly, though, the community mostly disagrees with you.

grand exchange ruined interaction
You make the false assumption that interaction is a good thing.

Someone spamming racial slurs at you is also "interaction."

Being forced to sit in Varrock spamming for hours to find someone who isn't trying to A) troll me, B) scam me, or C) haggle with me, wasting time I otherwise could've spent actually doing things I enjoy in the game just for the sake of "interaction" does not make the game any better.

Standard pvm gear is a 1.1billion gp bow
Standard means normal; familiar; usual; acceptable but less than top quality; commonly used or supplied.

A Twisted Bow is BiS, not standard.

I hope we can get a true oldschool server with no updates
No.
I'll keep score from now on.

There's no way there can be a "true" old school runescape server without any updates.

Sure it will be like a museum artefact, completely preserved and in this case, the nostalgia is completely preserved. But nostalgia will not be long term, people will eventually quit due to lack of any updates.

Turns out that the polls are/were a big waste of time because people just want shit to be easier without a real logical reason behind it. ''An inch of time is an inch of gold but you can't buy that inch of time with an inch of gold.''
