Thanks ravs, that post made my day and just confirms that this is not a pvp based game! =)


Except it is. The moment the PKers are neglected, the game dies.


So your 'too little too late' is a claim that the game is dead?

Nah.. it didn't die when wildy and free trade was gone.. in fact, it ain't dead yet. You're just cr

Yes the game went straight down the toilet after December 2007. If you don't believe this then you aren't a real veteran of this game. The entire point OSRS was brought back was so that we would have a version of the game before it was completely destroyed.

PKing is by far the most interesting thing to do on this game in terms of dynamics, and that's simply not up for debate. Skilling and PVM both have their place, but Skilling isn't going to grow this game and PVMing is too much of a mockery of what it once was (compared to back in the day when you die at Dagannoth Kings, you've lost bank).

PKing is the only thing remaining on this game that still has a very authentic 04-07 feel. So it is our only hope along with fixing the imbalance with safe PVM.
Long live the Wilderness. Long live risk vs reward in PVM. Long live 2006.

I am sorry if I offend anybody here but I agree with what Reminiscon is saying here.

Good, I hate PKing, and subsequently PKers. If i wanted to play clanscape then I would go start a WOW account


And this is why PvP updates are no longer polled.
If slayer is a skill, then I guess these slayer drop tables catered to skillers by pumping out so many resources. :)

You do realize Classic WoW came out and we're losing players to it?

PVP is the future of Old School, and Jagex needs to hurry up and decide what the hell they want Old School to be. Is it a mockery, or the real deal?

They better choose real deal, and embrace Wilderness and other forms of PVP as the future of this game, or else it has no future.
Long live the Wilderness. Long live risk vs reward in PVM. Long live 2006.

Any "real veteran of this game" knows that jagex has a favourite phrase.. that they've been using for at least a decade...

"Ignore it or quit" LMAO.

The game survived without the pkers in the wildy. For years. If it hadn't, old school wouldn't be here because they never would have been able to make the serious mistakes that began in 2010 (and included bringing the wildy back after claiming they never would) and ended with the launch of old school.

The entire point of the game is that after 2011, the game was dying rapidly. I told mmg in march 2012 that if he did not find a way to bring the game back to what it was before buyscape, the game would die in 2 years. A year later, when the player count went from 3 mil to .5 mil. They introduced old school.

On the other hand, after 2007, the player count went from 2 million active player accounts to 3 million. Loss of pking did not risk the game's health. Destruction of skilling did.

Unfortunately, you are likely right. I predict that in about 3 years jagex will get rid of all the non combat skills, get rid of 80% of the map and got to 3 to 5 servers around the world holding about 1k players each. Everyone else will have quit by then. They will run the game off mta's.
