So yeah, going back to the portables; people might naturally like the extra exp and cost savings they offer, but anyone who's honest with themselves will admit that it's not healthy for the game that you must go to CA for portables to train those skills or you're losing out on lots of exp and gp. Even if you bought your own portables, that still adds up to lots of gp wasted, especially if the increased demand increased the prices. They need to go, and with that, trolls would suffer a lot.

Is it really though? I always thought people complained about the lack of social interaction in game and portables really solved that.

And 2 of your points kind of contradict each other. On one hand, you say that so many players crowd around portables, using it as intended. On the other hand, you say that trolls will suffer from the removal of portables, but also conveniently not mentioning the hundreds more "innocent" players who will "suffer" from such an update.

It doesn't invalidate the point because portables damaging the integrity of the game is just simply your opinion, that isn't even shared by many other people.

If you genuinely think that getting a 10% exp boost (21% for cooking) + the other 5-10% chances to save resources or produce extra items for free, by training at a specific location accessible to everyone, is balanced, then tbh you don't understand game balancing and/or you've grown too addicted to the thing being imbalanced to your favor (gaining more exp) to let go of it willingly.

If game balancing, nerfing things in particular to repair game balance, was done according to what's a popular opinion, then we'd practically never see much-needed nerfs like this. Nobody likes to nerf something, but they will understand long term why it's needed, at least if they truly care about the game.

I don't think people meant they wanted to be trolled or to read toxic chat, things that tend to happen when you muster a massive cluster of random people together like with portables. Rather, to see and talk with more people across the game, not just in one mass-populated area.

Again, yes, lots of people tend to be upset about nerfs in the short term, but long term it makes the game better to balance it properly, and people will understand if they truly care about the game.

uhm.. didn't Jagex just ask for a popular opinion of what people don't like about at portables at Combat Arena? Didn't the popular opinion say fires and pets. Hence why this happened?

Pretty sure popular opinion wasn't remove portables.

Questions:
1) What does a person, who intends to do lines of fires for training, require the Combat Academy, which is used for portables? There's other convenient locations to do so.

2) Only the general location involved in training is hiding your pet, if the conversation comes up and you want a specific person to see, why not move a few steps to the side and show them?

It doesn't need to be on 24/7 to impress people.

Might as well remove bxp outfits too then, they give 6% bxp with chance to save material, plus they cost absolutely nothing to use whereas at least portables have a high upkeep cost.


No support.

Was an obviously sarcastic suggestion
