Change it back to how it was before, I came to play not get tracked by an algorithm that is actually a terrible algorithm. Will be doing everything, killings spinners, closing doors, attacking portal. Your algorithm blows and you need a better one.
Dear Runescape Mods, this is one of those moments in time when I might stop playing Runescape (again after only playing two days) all together because I keep running into these little changes that really do not make "Old Runescape" anything actually like old runescape. The Zeal tracker is one of the supremely frustrating changes because I have not recieved points on 60% of my games even though I am working really hard. It is because I am low level but your Zeal tracker only cares about hits made, even tho i can barely get to 50-80 which makes fulfilling the Zeal tracker really really hard. Unfairly hard, please make a change that adequately affects the players because this is bullshiet.
The tracker is important because it stops lobbies full of players afking while few players put in the effort to get the wins for everyone.
If you're struggling to reach the damage reqs (which i understand, many times the mobs and portals die so fast it's hard to get a hit in.) Then i recommend ignoring enemies and opting to cut trees and repair barriers. 10 repairs will get you full credit and earn you your points for the game.
Am sorry Runescape mod but that is a crap answer... so instead of getting to participate in combat, as a low level I am given pittance by the Runescape creators and allowed to chop down trees and make barriers... that is lame. Whoever headed that idea is a pleb and should be fired, I have been playing since 2001 (I think) and that is the most elitist garbage I have ever heard mate. For the love of the true Runescapers petition to have that changed because that is some elitist trash and ruins the game for players who simply... want... to... have... fun! Strange concept. I know.
