Let us temporarily lower Combat Stats.
it is a pvp update that would make pking much more accessible.



i shouldn't have to pay 100 dollars a month to be a member on all my accounts just so i can pk. that is many people's (including myself) reason not to pk.

how it would work is you could right-click a combat stat, select "lower" and put in a number. you can only do this if you have not been in combat for the past 2 minutes. this would also change your combat level. you would only get half/none of the expierience* if you have any stats lowered. in your combat tab, there is a button to switch back to your original stats, which also requires 2 minutes out of combat. the button displays your original combat level, as well as each combat stat's original level. having combat stats lowered would not let you use combat dummys, or other game features requiring a low combat level. you also would not have access to features requiring a higher level than what you changed it to. highscores would show original combat stats.



Pros:

Makes pking much more accesible

less work training alt accounts

less real life money paid to get membership on said accounts (could also be bad)

less account trading (less pking accounts for trade, less demand as well)

Cons:

Devalues already existing pking accounts

Could maybe be used to scam (i also would suggest that if any stats are lowered, show original combat level on right-click)

New players might lower a level and have no idea how to change it back (so i would suggest teaching it on tutorial island, and the combat tutors teaching you how to do it would help. even a pking tutor would be nice)

depending on how it is implemented, could be used to scout for people

I would like to add a section from one of the replies, as to make it part of the suggestion:

“It would have to require you to NOT be in a PVP area before switching stats. So you can't do this at all in the wildy, and if you lower a level you can not enter the wildy for 2 mins.

Also you can not change servers for 5 minutes afterwards. Otherwise people would scout people out. Then attack some poor level 60 with a level 80 in 20 wildy.”

a few people said it would lower jagex income, but my counter point to that is Jmods have expressed a clear interest in getting more people to pk, and i assume this would be a member's feature.

and a few people have gone offtopic and started talking about skillers and hacked accounts, please do not do that, as this suggestion is not permanent lowering, or being able to make them higher, and hiscores will still show original stats, so please keep the suggestion what it is and do not be off-topic.

and before anyone does, please do not flame, use bad words, etc. general discussion of my suggestion is fine and encouraged.

Support. Would encourage more people to get into PvP, making it less dead. Would stop people crying for special treatment with regards to content that 1 def people can't do, resetting XP that they didn't want etc.

That it would 'devalue' accounts that should never have existed in the first place is not an issue imo. The game should never have discouraged leveling defence. This is a genuine integrity issue that is a large part of the reason a lot of people don't bother getting into pvp.

Don't spite vote all PvP updates because of how frightened you are of PKers and then cry about how everything needs to be shoved in as integrity

It's already achievable, just make an Iron account to have locked in Melee & Range stats for PvP.

yes, but i still have to pay extra for membership on each ironman account, and i have to hope nobody loots the drops of whoever i killed. and i still have to spend extra time training.

that solves almost none of my problems, and adds the disadvantage of being an iron man.

and you did not say you did not support this, nor that you did, and you may have not completely understood my point. Therefore, you are not on the list of non-supporters. if you have re-read the post and read this reply to your post, you may post no support or -1 to be added to the list of non-supporters.

Support. I actually love this idea. Would help to combat loot bots, and any other lower levelled bot for that matter. Twice now I have created new accounts for the sole purpose of killing loot bots because I was bored. Unfortunately, the new accounts level up to quick so killing looters is short lived.

Would also allow more people to fight each other. If I'm out strolling around and there's no players around my level, but there are a bunch of players 30+ levels below me, I would be able to join in on the fun instead of having to sit and wait or have another account on standby and have to log out... log back in... run to that spot really fast... etc...

Also, a LOT of time is wasted on alt accounts. Time I could be spending doing other things such as enjoying the quests instead of creating an alt and getting tired out from it.

I do agree that you shouldn't have to have numerous accounts just to have more pk options available to you. Especially since there are some things you do not learn about pking until it is too late, and you are forced to either quit pking because you don't stand a chance against other pkers at your level, or create an alt account to start all over. Unless you just like getting killed over and over.

Hopefully there isn't too many nay-sayers on this. I hate it when good ideas get dismissed, and you are definitely on to something.

I could keep going on, but it would get off topic pretty quick so I'll stop here.
Hope this gets accomplished!
