Hey all,

Now that the first iteration for the refreshed seasonal hiscores has finished, we wanted to get your feedback.

There was some crazy competition between those at the top, fighting for that #1 spot. It was truly awesome to see.

We're interested in any feedback you have on the new style (timed) as well as any ideas you may have for future hiscores.

Aren't familiar with seasonal hiscores? You can check out any active and finished hiscores here.

Thanks,
Ryan

Seasonal hiscores shouldn't have a pay 2 win or advantage that some accounts have over others. In the medium dg hiscores for example, people that BOUGHT the elite dg outfit have A HUGE advantage over everyone that doesn't. For the QBD, main accounts will 100% beat ironman accounts because mains can use dragonslayer gloves from fist of guthix.

leave as is

edit: to the idiot above me, how is dragonslayer gloves from fist of guthix pay to win? Regardless, ofcourse I should have an advantage over you in that regard. I also doubt you have the armadyl pages required to grind out best times even if you could use the gloves.

edit2: could maybe change it to top 3 for golden. I know the competition with nex is brutal

Make high scores such as highest amount of drops instead of kills. Would be interesting @ telos.

I think it was fine... I just wish, for magic atleast, that 4taa wasn't the only way to compete for number 1 spot. I'd rather not cause hand problems just for a virtual title. Hopefully you guys make it more accessible or something easier to do and removing it when you reveal your plans for it at runefest.

Dungeoneering was pay to win, pretty disappointing that I couldn't compete in it, despite it being my favorite skill, simply because I didn't buy keys for an outfit.

Although this won't change, I do think top 5 or 10 for gold title would be better. If you can't get number 1, there is no reason to try for higher besides banter between others. It would be a lot more competitive if it was top 5 or 10 as people wouldn't feel they need to do certain extreme tactics to get a title. It is a shame the community, most of which probably can't even get top 100, voted for only 1 person to get the gold title, because people like exclusive stuff for some reason. It can be exclusive, but not so exclusive it becomes near impossible to get. If a competition is decided by 1-3 seconds, it's usually because of rng rather then skill. Demotivating to lose a golden title due to it and being on limited time due to overpowered berserk auras.

It went well. I'd like to see things such as how many of X monster can you kill in 1 hour, as well as permanent boss KC hiscores.

But it was a bad idea to allow gorajo outfit for dg hiscores as many people didn't have it

reading comprehension strong. He said the gorajo outfit was the p2w aspect of the competition, and that main accounts have access to an op item that ironmen cant get.

Seemed they were trying to group it in with their pay to win argument regarding dung outfit. If not, It is still a ridiculous argument to make. Insert generic they choose to limit themselves argument here.

This doesn't affect me as no chance ill be in the top of any hiscores, but was hoping something might be put in place to stop the same person winning the same category repeatedly. I'm aware that the person might, in theory, deserve to be able to win multiple times as they're "the best", but it would be nice if others were able to be recognized for their efforts.

The only huge problem I see with any pvm one is that mage is extremely op and if you can't afford 5b in gear then you can't compete. The mage auto attack should have never become a thing, but will jagex fix it? Probably not.


Also, maybe make separate highscores for ironmen so they have a chance. Especially for things like dg.
