Id say the requirements should be something like this:

- 1500 total
- 100 combat
- 200 quest points
- At least one combat 99 and one non combat 99
- Fire cape
- 100 unique kills in pvp (not killing the same person over and over)
- At least one elite diary done
- 1 Raid completed in CoX
- Account age at least 2 years

Sure a lot fewer people will be able to vote, but this will make sure the people who do vote, have played most parts of the game. None of the requierments above are too hard in my opinion, it just makes sure people who vote play the game and will limit voting on alts to a large extent.

To all the people who complain that this will make new players unable to vote. Yes it makes sense scinse they usually know very little about the game. Same reason children cant vote irl.

No troll lol. Most people who play this game a lot have all that on their main. Possibly not the 100 pvp kills but that is not hard to get. Dont make easily botted activities such as skilling profitable

If a person dont meet some of these requirements i mentioned, its a good incentive for them to do ALL kinds of content in the game, because ALL kinds of content in the game is polled. Dont make easily botted activities such as skilling profitable

Hard core pvmers have it, non hard cored pvmers do not. The majority are not hardcore pvmers.


What are you talking about? None of the requirements i mentioned requires you to be hardcore at anything. Its about being mediocre at most stuff at the game. Can you name the ones from my list you need to be hardcore for in your opinion?

The only thing that will make that kind of money is pvm and even that will take a lone time. Raids, which require you to be high level, only gives a reported 10 mil, and that means after months of training, you would take 50 hours of hard core pvming to get 500 mil. No non combat skill would ever make that kind of money

The majority of players are not pvpers, so getting 100 kills would be impossible for them.

Basically, what you are demanding is that only a tiny elite be able to vote.

Everyone has a right to vote, even those with less than a year or fewer than 1500 tl.

People have a right to decide to be pure whither it be defense pure or non combat pure, and they still have right to have a voice.


Doing raids efficiently requiers you to have pretty expensive gear yes, just completing 1 raid with like 10 deaths and a really shitty score does not. Getting 100 pvp kills can be done by anyone, there are plenty of bots to kill in the wilderness.

As i said, polls include ALL kinds of content to be voted on. Therefore i believe people who vote need to have done that content, otherwise they really dont know what they are voting for.

Agreed with everything except the PvP and time requirements. Make the PvP kills requirement unnecessary if the player has completed the wilderness elite diary since it requires doing most of the content there.

As for the account age requirement: if someone manages to meet all these within 1 year, what's the point in making them wait another year when they are clearly qualified/informed enough to vote?

Maybe they could give a weighting to each players' vote based on how many of these requirements have been met, 100% for having all requirements, 50% of a vote for having half of them etc.


Id say either 100 kills OR wildy elite diaries, good suggestions. Agree with the account age too, and if a person is dedicated enough to get many alts meeting all of these requirements, they kind of deserve more votes.

I dont really agree with the scaling of vote %, might get a bit messy and people might get alts that do only the faster requirements such as a 99 and firecape etc. Maybe limit it to only 50% and 100%.
