If you want a new skill to pass, some of us downvote an entire skill solely because of one or two potential rewards. This is because if the skill doesn't pass, then NONE of the uniques can pass and we don't wanna take any chances. For this reason, I think Jagex should try to just poll the skill with zero rewards first and then try to poll rewards from there on. If the rewards fail, then the skill will still be in game (assuming it passed which it most likely would due to attaining more support) and we could just poll other rewards later. Considering the fact that people like me bonded countless alts to vote no, I think this would definitely sway the polls. I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

They allow ever reward to be separately voted on, so if you down vote the entire skill, its entirely spite. About what I would expect from pkers.


Not a PKer. I'm a PvMer. If I downvote the entire skill, the reward has ZERO chance of passing. If I upvote the skill, the reward has a slight chance of passing. Nice failed assumption though. I'm just playing my cards smart. :)

Okay so you created accounts, trained them to total level 300s and bought them membership to simply have more votes to say no to something you dont want, not because you dont want it, but in your own words, only dont like the rewards that the new skill would offer? Even despite the rewards and content being polled in questions seperate from the release of the skill?











............are you high?


Ever thought that maybe I had like 30 accounts before all of this? Also, my clanmates pitched in hundreds of mil for the cause. Btw do you remember what happened when revs passed but all the uniques failed?

Like how high are you? Or are you just that spiteful and full of bile? Not trying to flame, but seriously that is dumb and has to be in breach of some kind of rule. Im too flabbergjasted by this stupidity to think of which rule atm, but still... Someone tell me what rule this breaks? Or rules??


Use your head for once. If the skill fails, then NOTHING gets through. It's a surefire way to ensure that the overpowered rune pouches don't make it in. It's not spiteful, it's being smart. When those rune pouches don't make it into the game, you'll understand my genius resolve.

At this point I would be good with any new skill. Old School Runescape desperately needs a new skill and to see so many people cry and bitch about it possibly completely changing the gaming landscape makes me sick.

Back in 2004 - 2006 we received Runecrafting, Slayer, Farming, Construction and Hunter. That was five skills we got in two and a half years.

I still think Summoning and Dungeoneering were stupid ideas, but over time they molded into their own and both were greatly beneficial to have during pre-EOC Runescape.

So far, since February 2013, we have gotten nothing.

There hasn't been one skill released in all this time. Jagex can barely come out with a new quest, let alone a new questline. I think now, more than ever, we need to focus on how a new skill can breath new life into the game. Just like all the other skills I mentioned have done.

If Andrew Gower was still running this game, we would of gotten a few new skills. He is long gone, and I felt these past couple years have been mostly Jagex being money centric while core content gets neglected and QoL updates are implemented for the excuse to make everything easier.

Jagex is running full steam with crap since Old School Runescape went mobile. They make a shit ton of money, a lot more now than they did before you could play this game on a mobile device.


Basically this. I've got a couple nubnubs on this thread who cba to understand the intentions and concluded I'm being spiteful although a couple of spite voters did turn me against any new skill at the last second. The thing is that I'm simply offering the feedback that would get my yes votes on countless of alts. It's not gonna pass thanks to the HLC. I'm in one of the most elitist clans in the game where the average member has at least a 5b bank. We're all strongly opposed to this skill and have reserves of money to throw on bonding accounts and buying out no votes. We control the polls.

Well, yeah. This is an MMO. That new skill of yours affects EVERYONE. Ever thought of that for once? Not everything revolves around you and your little group that you subcategorize yourself as while accusing me of doing the same.

It's not spite. If I wanted to spite vote, I'd make a flame bait thread. Instead, I made a thread giving a suggestion on how to repoll it (which yes, I genuinely want a repoll so skillers can have something) in such a way that it can pass. But by all means, keep pushing it with these ridiculous accusations. You're just slowly gonna turn me and every other open-minded opposer away from it.

How is it not smart? You think I'm some peasant who has a 2b bank and can barely afford a Twisted Bow and Scythe and almost nothing else? How poor do you think I am? I can just pay people to train countless accounts for me. I didn't have to sell any of my spare Twisted Bows or Scythes. I'm still able to loan my friends BIS gear just as I want to and ToB still makes 12m/hr. My bank's doing just fine. The only real loss was that I no longer have 100k purple sweets banked, but 90k will suffice for now.

I gained power over the polls by doing this. If you wanna talk about irl and all that, go to some irl forums. These forums are made for the game and that's all that matters on here. I got the updates that I want in doing so. I never even bonded any alts to vote in the ditch removal yet I did so for this. Oh, and my beloved clanmates handed over hundreds of mil for the cause. We care about game integrity and won't let the game go to shit.

Exactly. We have the power since we're actually good at the game and we can use it however the fuck we want. If you don't like it, then git gud and quit being a nubnub. Get the power that we have and use it however the fuck you want. Until then, you're stuck under our mercy.

So you've been playing the game for 16 years and can't get base 80's? That's a disgrace lol. Lmk if you need to borrow some range xp, nubnub. You're likely just upset that your account has no capabilities to PvM or make money in any form whatsoever.



Don't ever assume I'd stoop so low as to fight peasant bosses like Bandos again. It's extremely disrespectful and I'm above bosses like that. That's made for failures who can't raid unless of course you're prayer flicking it while pet hunting. The only people who don't raid avoid it, because they're incapable of learning it. That's the content everyone strives for, but some people just aren't good enough to do it. As a result, they have to settle for unskilled content such as skilling and Bandos. The good players PvM. There's a reason why a PvMer won the skillers' competition. We're just outright superior in every way.

How is the in-game economy gonna fail because warding doesn't pass? The economy is already a total mess because of crybabies asking for easyscape death mechanics. We should just let it rot until you guys start begging for a GE tax and proper death mechanics that I've been advocating since the very beginning unlike some who only cried the moment it got out of control.

I don't want the pouch in game, period. It was extremely broken and we do NOT need four runes being held in a single inventory slot.

Why the fuck would I wanna spend 5 hours leveling a skill I don't have to if I just downvote it? I cba to even get 99 construction or herblore and I have the most expensive methods banked. I paid my friend to get me 90 herblore just because of how much I hate skilling.

Thanks for applauding my decision to vote

To be fair though i do agree with the core of what youre saying. It would have more chance of success had they made it a one question poll of "warding yes or no" and then clarified that its content would be polled ammended and tested later on.


That's the point of this thread. I want others to have the content and I'm

The economy is a total mess because Jagex did NOT adapt and they left skilling in general to rot.

People can complain to me all day that the old dangerous randoms were outdated and were a waste of time, but they were a factor between someone going AFK and someone actually sitting there playing the game. Jagex saw the complaints people had with randoms, but instead of coming up with an alternative they just removed them entirely. It's much more efficient now to skill because "stupid" randoms according to most players were hurting their efficiency rates on XP. So they catered to the crybabies.

Then Jagex decided to change the gravestone timers to where you can die from practically anywhere in the game and still have enough time to collect your crap. This has done a LOT to ensure items do not leave the game.

Then there was stuff like Zulrah who would of been a good boss soloing had there not been a NPC to grab everything you lost. This goes back to the gravestone timers. You died because your internet crapped out? No problem, just get a teleport scroll to go back there and get the NPC to hand you back your gear.

Nightmare Zone was very overpowered and broken at release and it took Jagex ages to finally change the content.

Raids have already been changed to the point where any noob can do them if they're being carried. Inferno Capes? We got a broken third party client (Runelite) to help with those.

God how I miss 2013.


I mean keep in mind that the community did overwhelmingly support all of

Entitlement? I'm clearly better at the game and therefore have more credibility. Quit trying to act as if you're on the same level as me.

Yeah and I would've been the first to get an Infernal Cape if I had a Twisted Bow at the time just like every other redditor crying their eyes out about how it was limited only to the people with the best gear without understanding that the people with that gear got there learning how to PvM.

Except it does. Superior PvMers have more credibility. It's not narcissism. Don't act like failures who can't even get an Infernal Cape are on the same level as those who can.

Actuall no, weston, as ive told you in other threads, not everyone strives to pvm or raid. I dont. I play on mobile for 1 hr a night and dont atrive for shit. Ive had many accounts in 16 years and havent cared to get 1 skill on 1 account to 99. I dont care, and its not that I cant. I dont want to,even of i did have the time, which i dont. And thats in no way any sort of defense. I play the game because its meaningful in my life and was an element my family bonded over in my childhood, because i come from an impoverished broken family that mostly faught. But we stopped fighting to play. And so I still play, and still dont give a fuck about you, pvmers, ingame wealth, stats or gear. The fact that ypu do makes me sad. And makes me want to stop speaking to you. Youre a sad person. Goodluck in life.


So you're resorting to the stereotypical "I don't care about this game" excuse. If you really didn't, you wouldn't be crying so much about this new skill not passing (which we don't even know the outcome of yet). I find that to be hard to believe. If you love your family so much, get the fuck off this game and forums and have fun with them. I don't care about your life story or that irrelevant discussion.

simply giving my feedback on what would make it pass.


Youre just not getting it bro. You were meant to have 1 vote, and if it doesnt pass because of you but still has 70% or more of the vote youll know that everybody wanted this but you just couldnt let go of a hangup or use that power you claim to have to downvote the one thing, and you prolly wont feel bad about it, but thats 70% of the community that you just pushed further away from the game. 70% of the communoty who will no longer buy the shit you sell. 70% less nubnubs to follow you arpund and give you an ego boost while they say how cool your tbow and tob pet is (i see them when i bankstand hoarding around maxes and that makes me sad too). Anyway. Have fun, ejoy youraelf, im done talking with you because you dont understand and dont want to...


Yeah, well I can't stand the altscape meta either. I just adapted to it. Why the fuck should I care about the peasant majority who didn't work for shit? It sounds like you guys are just crying that you don't have the money I do to throw around on stuff like this. If it upsets y'all so much, then git gud. If you guys were decent at the game like me, you guys could be having this much power too. I'm loving this. Hard work pays off.

Not fooling anyone, huh? So glad I wasn't bluffing and even gladder that I was already in my Raids gear for me to login and make my job easier. :)



No one cares about braindead content such as slayer and skilling. Ever wonder why the most popular streaming content is PvM? Also, you're stuck in the past. That was 2013. This is now. That's why even Woox is starting to lose some mild spotlight thanks to xZact and Kelvino. Times change. Get with it.

Well, yeah. More money is better. That's why you play the fucking game rofl. The better PvMers will naturally have more money anyways. It's blatantly obvious when someone flipped, RWTed, or staked their bank and when someone earned it legit. Stakers and merchants never last and my friends who RWTed their TBows all ended up being skull tricked for it in the end. That's why money is an indication of how good you are as a player.

Yeah, I get it. You somehow think that despite having zero accomplishments, you're credible enough to talk about content you don't know shit about. Everyone claims to know the game inside out yet they all failed at the Inferno. Gear isn't an excuse either, because xZact did it in 2007 gear and stats without even a blowpipe.

Quit trying to bash those of us who are actually good at the game. You sound pretty triggered and oversensitive that I dare have the audacity to stick up for myself. The only difference is your posts are empty words whereas mine are backed by actual facts and accomplishments. Sucks to be at the bottom, huh?

So you mentioned how casual slayer is yet you're trying to state that it isn't braindead while implying it has no skill curve?

Don't ever associate me with failures like Lynx Titan. He relied extensively on Kelvino to hand him the meta. Ever notice how a PvMer won the skillers' competition? Skillers skill, because they're incapable of doing anything else as portrayed above.

You just tried arguing with me without any form of credibility and I called you out on that. Get over yourself. The fact that my bank's bigger shows that I'm better at the game. It's so blatantly obvious how jealous you are and it's pathetic. Git gud nubnub.

Idk about you but back in my day, we worked for our respect rather than expecting to be handed it without any form of merit whatsoever.

And all of that was purely outdated. No one wants to train boring skills as their end-game content lol. If you think a game like that was gonna last, you're severely delusional and need a reality check.

So a dragon axe was the best loot? And imagine not having maxed combat stats rofl. I have 35m strength xp from playing the game a bit here and there. Just because a couple of failures struggled with it didn't mean that we all did.



No boss back then had any form of skill curve. You're just talking out of your ass at that point. The only boss that had a mild skill curve was GWD and DKS and that's if you prayer flicked them in an attempt to stay for days without supplies which even then wasn't too hard with a day's worth of practice. They have nothing on Raids.

Well, yeah. Why didn't he win the KOTS competition? Quit trying to frame skillers as people who set up bot farms and do braindead activities all day (unless that's what they actually are). Skilling should take skill yet Lynx got destroyed in the KOTS competition. He lost his own competition to a couple PvMers making him their bitch and dependent on them for metas. He copied Kelvino's 2t sharks meta for quite some time.

I don't have hatred for skillers. I just don't respect skillers who skill, because they're incapable of PvMing. Kelvino, Woox, b0aty, Zulu, Dedwilson, and I are all skillers yet I love most of the names listed here. I just won't ever respect failures afraid to L2PvM.

PKers never want every update to target them. They've had TWO rejuvenations over the course of the past six years. You don't label them as that, because it makes no logical sense unlike labeling people who only skill as people afraid to do any other content in the game. It's not narcissistic. It's factual reasoning.

Quit letting your extremely butthurt emotions guide things and use your logical reasoning skills for once. You don't have to be a computer science graduate to understand basic things.

Lemme rephrase that. A bigger bank earned through PvM, odds staking, or merching makes you better. Brainlessly chucking your bank does not indicate any form of knowledge over the game but rather just lucky RNG. To have money, you need to understand the ins and outs of the game. It's always the broke noobs crying about this that don't have even a 1b bank. They're just looking for excuses and compromising with themselves.

In 2004-07, you earned your shit in a risky manner. And how the fuck are dragon claws without turmoil or overloads overpowered? The Scythe is a lot worse.

So this is still your day. No one's forced to do anything. We play the game how we do, because we want to. People just resort to the "I play for fun" excuse when they realize they've been beaten in every way. I know for a fact that if I stopped progressing my account that I'd still be better than the majority of people out there yet I still play. Why? Because I find it fun. You're just looking for desperate excuses to justify your lack of accomplishments.

Knowledge is one thing. I'd like to factor a lot of this to the fact that we didn't have the attention span back then to grind either. We could also be satisfied by little petty things such as enjoying the game bankstanding and being unproductive.

I used mainly RuneHQ and Sal's Realm of RuneScape. I loved Sal's Realm the most. RuneHQ caused lag for my old ass Dell Inspiron.

Basically. Their accomplishments were devalued over time and never should've been. That's why I fucking hate NMZ.

Well, yeah. Everyone knows the fastest xp rates now.

That last paragraph is straight up bullshit. Everyone uses Runelite (not Runespan, L2spell) yet not many have the cape. You're just blatantly talking out of your ass and trying to cover up insecurities of not being able to get the cape lol. Inferno plugins are banned for a reason. Those plugins don't "hold your hand". You're just making claims without backing any of it up.

They're incapable, because no one would primarily only skill given the garbage amount of money it makes. There's obviously something forcing them to just stick to skilling. They're clearly far too unskilled to do anything else. This was proven countless times such as when a PvMer beat them at their own game. PKers PK for fun, not because they have to. They obviously play for fun out of enjoyment, because they at least won their own competition on countless occasions. That's why theirs warrant constantly increasing (most recently $32k USD) cash prizes yet skilling competitions don't. The fact is that several skillers such as the gold farmer only bitch about content they can't do. Why do you think people cry for a TBow nerf so much but not for a blowpipe?

Mate, you sound fucking butthurt judging from your response. Us PvMers have the ability to spite vote skillers' content as they did to the PKers. We hit 'em back 10 times worse and it was 10/10 worth it. I would gladly spite vote them again for what they did to the PKers. It won't be forgotten. The only difference was that the skiller trash got so full of themselves that it was gonna pass 100% and gave off a much better reaction when it failed. PKers were mature about it and accepted the poll results. Clearly, the skillers are the entitled spoiled brats here.


The only reason I see them skilling is to meet quest requirements, get all the Achievement Diaries finished (with Evil Dave's stew) and try to earn all 99s.

There was a time when skilling was profitable, but that was a long time ago. Runecrafting is the only skill left I can think of that turns up anything remotely decent. Double Natures was 1M GP/hr if you're quick enough, but that's nothing compared to what PvM today offers.

Gold Farmers primarily do a monotonous task over and over and over. They do what skillers back in the day use

LOL, who the fuck even buys teleports for Zulrah when you could save 18k/trip by getting 71 agility and boosting with a summer pie for those too lazy to get 76? L2skill nubnubs.

Support for actual death mechanics to discourage AFKing. Personally, I cba to afk. If I'm gonna afk, I might as well put my full focus on irl and not play the game at all. It's a game. It's not supposed to feel like a chore and afking makes it feel like a job.

Basically. Skilling's the biggest example of it though. Every new "QoL" is some massive easyscape afk fest.

Basically. PvM evolved over time and skilling didn't. I think Zalcano was definitely a step in the right direction, though.
I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

Then why are all these crybabies in tears that they couldn't buy out votes like I did? They wanted to be good at the game but just couldn't. That's a failure at heart. They want something, but didn't have the balls to get it. I know a lot of people irl like this and they always claim to play for fun when it's clear they don't. That's their excuse for being garbage at the game and they're constantly bitching about how bad they are at it. It's clear that I'm having far more fun than those failures likely because I've much better at the game than they could ever hope to be. But what could you possibly expect? I'm just naturally superior.


There are shit players. There are shit PvMers. There are shit PvPers. There are shit skillers. There are shit merchants and gold farmers. There are shit stakers.

What they are is overly self entitled and I see them as narcissists. If they try to play the game and they can't get better at playing, the fault is entirely on them. There's no first class, second class, third class agenda like they way you're describing this.

They can be failures in this game and they can be failures in real life.

My issue with all this and my issue with you is you have a superiority complex. If you just went out and say "I'm a good player, I have years of experience but I also respect others who take the time to learn and I move on from the players who whine and complain", we wouldn't of had to make two pages of volleying conversations at each other.

Instead you took the route of Donald Trump. I'm superior. I'm rich. I'm above everyone else because I have a title and I starred on a reality TV show.

How do you expect people are going to respond to you with a superiority complex? Why do you think I've been a bit emotional towards you?


I expect them to look up to me like this if they use logic and not their jealous emotions.

But it seem like with those contextless rambling makes You more of the emotionally-charged and then escape to logic when counter debated.


I provided proof of noobs worshipping me. You never did. Sounds like you're hurt that some of us actually accomplished something with our gaming careers.

Knowledge is one thing. I'd like to factor a lot of this to the fact that we didn't have the attention span back then to grind either. We could also be satisfied by little petty things such as enjoying the game bankstanding and being unproductive.

I used mainly RuneHQ and Sal's Realm of RuneScape. I loved Sal's Realm the most. RuneHQ caused lag for my old ass Dell Inspiron.

Basically. Their accomplishments were devalued over time and never should've been. That's why I fucking hate NMZ.

Well, yeah. Everyone knows the fastest xp rates now.

That last paragraph is straight up bullshit. Everyone uses Runelite (not Runespan, L2spell) yet not many have the cape. You're just blatantly talking out of your ass and trying to cover up insecurities of not being able to get the cape lol. Inferno plugins are banned for a reason. Those plugins don't "hold your hand". You're just making claims without backing any of it up.


You sound pretty insecure when you argue back every statement/points. Are you hurt? Maybe the forum help or psychiatrist help is just a click away.


Mate, you sound the most insecure crying that you wasted your life on a game you ended up hating. Why don't you just uninstall if you hate the game so much?

This is such a bait thread and I regret giving a serious reply now. JMODs confirmed that the use of bonded alt accounts made a minimal difference in the results of the Warding poll and it would have failed anyway by a very similar margin without alts. I'm guessing that's by filtering out duplicate IP addresses or something like that.

I don't believe you're in a clan with avg 5b bank. And saying "we own the polls" is the most bait thing I've ever read on this forum. If you did mass-bond alt accounts then well done for wasting billions.


Lmao what else would expect out of a clan with an Infernal cape requirement? I also left the clan temporarily. And where did you hear that alts made a minimal difference? We own the place. I'm a broke noob with barely 6b (and yes, that's pathetic for someone who Raids nonstop) and even I bought out 50 votes. Our leader, Ozzy, had a 30b bank.

It's not bait. I can't imagine what it must feel like to be so poor that this is unheard of. Have you never split a Twisted Bow in your life?

When talking about a new skill, I downvoted warding because of the rune pouch with 4 slots. If warding didn't pass, neither could the rune pouch. I don't wanna have to be forced to skill just so I can PvM at maximum efficiency.

Skillers have got to stop trying to force everyone to play the game their way. It's already atrocious enough that players with a maxed cape get EVERY skillcape perk giving them a significant advantage in PvM scenarios.

Support for nerfing NMZ and 3PC. Warding failed. Those wardstones aren't coming. You guys need to get over it at this point.

On this evening's Q&A stream on Twitch they announced that even discounting alts Warding would have failed to pass. Guess you felt like you saved the community with your 200iq move? Well done...

I am over Warding, some content within it was pretty cool. You can hardly say removing Splashing from the game by adding Wardstones is a bad idea. Forget the rest of Warding and just have that and it'd pass polls easily.


Well, the other side was using alts so we had to as well. Besides, I thought they said they'd be incapable of filtering it out properly?

I don't want splashing removed if it's gonna cost the entire integrity of PvM lmao. For fuck's sake, a rune pouch with three rune slots was atrocious enough. Next thing you know, Jamflex is gonna be polling pack yaks lol.

You're right, investing thousands of hours into mastering every skill in the game should only result in a cosmetic cape. /s

What a joke opinion to have. Maxing is prestigious and the reward for it should be significant.


I don't care, I don't wanna be incentivized to get that cape just so I can PvM at maximum efficiency. It's braindead and redundant content. At least give a 50k xp lamp per raid completed and I'll support it.

Considering the fact that people like me bonded countless alts to vote no, I think this would definitely sway the polls.


The q&a session today the talked about alts and how they affect the poll results. Apparently not much

Looking into it.
