So I keep an eye on news posts.. hoping that there will come a time when RS looks like something I could play again..

This news post makes me happy with my decision to find another game.. y'all sound like you're planning to really push pvp hard.. when not all of your customers have interest in pvp.

What a shame.. RS was so much more than pking.. back in the day.. and it sounds like you want to choke off all aspects (and all players) that don't want anything to do with pvp.

The amount of replies here indicates how many people cares.


Wrong. Nobody uses the forums. The amount of people that care is an extremely high number. Just look at the Reddit and Twitter linked in the news posts. Post about these issues generally get up to 30k upvotes and are posted about daily.

Except that that's not true haha. I mean, the very VERY strong majority of content is for skillers and pvmers. This is just talking about giving Pvpers some content. The fact that you don't want Pvpers to get any content is upsetting to say the least. But as you've said, you've moved on to other games and it's great to hear. We don't need people that believe that certain parts of the community don't deserve to get content updates.
XForum Revenge - Forum Help is not the place for you to try and get revenge. You shouldn't be reporting players who have reported you, the forums should be an adult and civil place, so please don't misuse this. || No talking negative about anything that F Mods support please!

last man standing is dead because it is prayer flick scape. the game would be 1000x better with the removal of prayer. no1 even bothers with it because of it has nothing to do with surviving through strategy and everything to do with prayer flicking.

we should be able to have government issued i.d. to be able to recover accounts like many other mmorpgs. at the minimum have a delay set to the authenticator removal

we should get an entire set of granite weapons like granite hallys and 2h's. theres no reason not to

weapons of simliar tiers should have similiar damage if its the same speed such as maces and scims or daggers

there is no reason for people who have never pvp'd to be able to spam vote "no" on 15 accounts so that the pvp community gets no updates

deadman tourns would be alot more appealing to the community if we didnt have to chance it out in giant multi batles with clans. theres litterally no point in grinding when its just luck if your getting piled. the ability to do 1vs1 with 2k players even is very simple as even after 5 rounds it would be down to 67 people.


having only streamers get some sort of justice for being ragged is rather unfair to everyone. even those who tweet vids of 100 clips of some1 ragging them get ignored when sent to litterally 8 jmods.

I found there to be an issue with the recovery of accounts, the information there could be known to say, an ex-partner. For Customer Support or even with communication with Jagex, it seems people get results through Reddit or Twitch over your own site. I was able to get around 700 up-votes on Reddit + JMod response, ignored here.

As for old content, I don't think people specifically mean Chambers of Xeric, I think a lot of the world could use a bit of love, people have the game for nostalgia, nobody would lose nostalgia over trees looking better or nicer textures. I for one have played since 2004 and would LOVE to see some kind of update such as OSHD (like the 2008 update) as well as a better engine to support more updates and such. As long as the gameplay remains the same and doesn't become EoC and everything sticks to an oldschool feel ie: full bronze looking sharper, but not like space armor from Halo.

For Polls, the reason to hide them is because a large majority of humans are sheep, they will just vote with the majority. It's not a problem fix, but it might help a little bit, it'd be a step forward and I can't imagine it would be a difficult update.

As for people "vote no to PvP" maybe there could be some kind of limit on players to be allowed to vote on some polls, most players will vote no if they don't understand it and some will vote no out of spite, as for the understanding, I for one voted "skip" to the god dragonhide removing the defense requirement because I don't know what affect adding 2 prayer would have on them. I get that it's more about cosmetics, but you would have been introducing more stats to pures. But most people won't do what I did, so not sure if there's any way to solve either problem without finding some way to limit who can vote on what content. Think Electoral College in the USA, it doesn't go by popular vote that way even small states have a say. In this case, small communities would still have a larger impact in their own content.
