Seems every time a new idea is propositioned it gets alot of grief from every angle. But there is one recurring comment people make that just grinds my gears. Always said in such a way you know they have no real arguement but want to seem somewhat intelligent. And today on a youtube video discussing warding I saw the same comment again and tbh was triggered like some crybaby millenial snowflake would be so here's my thoughts about it.

*Insert new helpful idea that needs to be attempted before anybody can say for sure what its impact would be*

"Oh no, don't do that, that you even suggested that new helpful idea makes me snowflakey and angry, how dare you, it's not old school enough. This is osrs for a reason."

It's not old school enough. It's not old school enough. This is osrs for a reason.

I have played runescape since it was released and I dont think the people who say this know what they are talking about. Lemme break it down for you.

If you only want absolutely old old school content that is entirely true to how this game was in the beginning then heres what you're actually asking for:

No more bosses, ever at all period, no more skill capes, lets 86 agility, runecrafting, farming, construction, thieving, and most high lvl equipment that isnt runite armor. No more godswords, barrows equipment, crystal gear, blowpipe, tanzanite helm, zulrah absolutely deleted. Take away zulrah, raiding, redwoods, most guilds, most quests, more than 60% of the map. No more crabs, of any kind, no more pouches, of any sort, no more d.scim, tbow, claws are gone. No more mole or tithe farm, lets get rid of the grand exchange and only have 2 kinds of dragons. Moss giants only in crandor, and fishing only in karamja. No more bank chests, rooftops, graceful, stamina potions, in fact, no more herblore. While we're at it lets remove most of the safe non pvp areas, in fact lets make every area outside of lumbridge pvp.
Thought is reality, reality is illusion.

So yeah lets get rid of all of that, but lets go further, lets take away darts and knives and most cbows. No more fight caves. Lets do it, lets make it truly what it was back then. Lets all hang out it draynor chopping willows and fishing shrimp. No more slayer or blastfurnace. Or, as one of only 10 other options lets run coal from a crowded mining guild with only 35 rocks all the way to fally east bank for hours. For no reason either bcuz nothing exists to be bought yet. Lets just hoard that shit, bcuz no grand exchange so it cant be sold efficiently. Lets bring all that amazing stuff back. Lets fish at the docks to cook it in the jungle to fight the 3 demons in the volcano.

No more any of that because its not old school enough. After all, this is osrs for a reason,

No more kourend or xerics. Only 2 spellbooks. Only 95 quests. Only 18 skills. Lets do that. Lets make it what it was, what it rightfully should be.

I would like to see how many people still play when they delete just zulrah, raids and construction. Yall would go apeshit and quit that moment. Guarantee it.

I'm actually disappointed by a lot of the newer updates so I do understand what they mean by saying "it's not old school enough. This is osrs for a reason."
I also don't think that a slow paste game like runescape needs weekly updates.
Some updates fit into the game others don't that's just how it is.
Next time you might just ask why the person thinks that something isn't oldschool enough.

I understand what youre saying but, (keeping this nonspecific) which of these updates that I suggested removing were good fits? Which are keepers? Why is it for them to decide? I aggree that weekly updates are overkill, its overdone, it really is, but saying something isnt old school enough isnt a valid point in any discussion about anything. And if it is then cool, lets remove everything that isnt then, simple.

Its like a kid who says he wont eat his veggies bcuz they look yucky.

But to also say something specific, as mentioned, i have played since the very beginning as a family passtime with my dad and brothers. 16 years now. And i remember at the beginning, after a month, i turned to my dad and said, "we can make our own armor"
He said,"yeah, its great,"
I said, "and we can make bows and arrows,"
He said, "yeah, its fanstastic,"
I said, "we can make leather and hide armors for range and weopons for melee,"
He said, "okay your annoying me now whats your point? I get it we can make stuff boy, get unstuck already,"
And i said, "well why cant we make the magical robes, armors and weopons then?" *before you could craft battle staffs*
And he said "....., thats a good question wtf, why cant we, they mustve messed up."

And so in 16 years minus a month i have seen a gap that they have perfectly filled with warding, and its being shouted down bcuz it doesnt benefit zulrah kill rates and raid times or whatever tf and thats the only arguement most of these ppl are using "it isnt old school enough"

Well that was actually my point in the other thread. They try to introduce a skill 16 years too late and that's why I don't think that it fits into the game.
My account is progressed to a point where I don't want to look back and level up a skill just for the sake of it being 99.
If anything I'm intrested in a new skill which would make sense to train from scratch for higher levels.
Warding definetely is a skill u want to have access to right from the start.
I also think that the "it isn't oldschool enough" quote fits pretty well for warding since it reminds me a bit of invention. So might be a bit of a meme too.

That makes alot of sense i guess. I mean, i want to point out that that isnt a valid reason not to release it either. You dont have to go back and get the 99. You dont have to train it at all. Its release wouldnt affect your account at all really, other than adding a skill to the list that will remain lvl 1. But i wont. Im tired and nobodys gonna budge about it and its not gonna pass, and its nothing like invention and idk.... Maybe ill go make my own game eventually.... Its such a cool and fitting idea but everybody has hangups and i just idc anymore. Fuggit. So i also wont point out that the economy is in dire decline and doing anything is worthless these days because of bots and pvm and over production and items flooding the system to perpetually remain in the system and decrease its price because digital items don't decay and this skill would add a way to remove those items from the economy and make the other skills worth your time once again but its cool. I like doing stuff with no incentive or reward. No big deal. Thought is reality, reality is illusion.

If not warding then what kind of skill would be worth adding and training?

No matter what skill you suggest the hole would exist. It would still be an incomplete game with a gap, but what skill would be worth the time? Bcuz lets face it, without warding and dissolvimg this game is an incomplete game with two huge gaps in logic that I only keep playing to stay close to my family for nostalgia despite the glaring logical inconsistancy that has annoyed my adhd ocd for 16years.

I would even go as far as to say if it doesnt pass polls it should be added anyway as a game integrity oversight fix and an economic necessity.

Agree 100%. Awesome thread. Anyone that wants changes to make ironman easier should be renamed wannabe-man and have their ironman icon replaced with a dunce hat.

The fact that we get to choose whether or not we want a particular skill is amazing, as we don't have things like summoning forced on us. I think warding, however, would be a good addition to the skills roster. And I do agree with you that magical armour should be craftable to be in line with other armour types.

Like you said, I also think it'd both fill a gap that currently exists between other skills AND add an item sink to help the economy. I'm really excited to see warding released and I do hope it passes the poll. Should it fail, I hope Jagex will consider adding magical armour crafting to Runecrafting at least. That makes sense according to the skill and would add additional content to one of the - I think - least popular skills atm.
A very special snowflake.
