This might be a controversial topic so I am not sure how people will feel about this. But I believe that a evolution of combat rework is needed. The reason I say this is because I believe it just gets too complicated to fight PVE or PVP. In RS3 PVP is dead, no one does it no more because theres just too much to it. People love the simplicity and thats why OSRS pvp is thriving. Plus I realise that on Legacy without the evolution of combat I can 1 hit things while on Evolution of combat I cant do so. I just believe evolution of combat needs to be changed, I dont believe it should be removed but its need to be more simplistic.

What do you lot think?

Pvp is dead in RS3 because people don't want to lose their valuable high-end gear in the Wildy. Bringer cheaper lower gear is just a guarantee to lose.
It has nothing to do with EoC.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Are you kidding me? Its like you havent played the game? Make a poll on OSRS and RS3 and youll see that people dont PK on RS3 because of EoC. If what your saying is the case then tell me this, why are there many more people pking on OSRS than rs3? It only cost a few 100k to pk on both of them, yes a bit less on OSRS but still same amount of money you need to invest to pk on both. Also before EoC was implemented many were pking and I was one of them. After EoC was implemented the numbers in the wilderness dropped significantly. Now theres barely anyone pking. If you believe what your saying is correct lets make a poll on both RS3 and OSRS and we will see what the majority will say.

OSRS doesn't have tier 90/92 armour and weapons worth several hundred mil together that you could lose in the Wildy. People don't want to risk half their bank if they want a chance to survive. If you don't wear expensive high end gear in the Wildy and your attacker does you're pretty screwed.

Maybe EoC had a part in it, but it's definitely not the sole reason. Maybe most pk'ers were accidentally EoC haters or vice versa? Maybe pk'ers hated EoC just because it was new and they wouldn't have the upperhand anymore because good tactics to win weren't devised yet?
I'm not a pk'er myself (except some cursed energy bots), but binding/stunning abilities seem pretty handy to use PvP.

I see people dueling each other in busy places using EoC and they enjoy themselves. The fights can be hard to predict too, one moment a player has the upper hand, and one ability later the tables are completely turned, so tactic is an important part of it. Nothing indicates that EoC is too complicated for combat. People just need to take a bit of time to learn it, that's all.

I feel that in the current game the bonuses given to range and magic have been improperly given. They currently make melee combat complete under-powered. This is because melee is stuck to close combat which buffs the ranged stunning of both range and magic. This is on top of the split between strength and attack which is split for melee while combined for range and magic. Additionally, unless you have masterwork trimmed, most of the newer bosses are nearly impossible or significantly harder to beat using melee. This with melee also needing to take melee damage from boss enemies while range and magic users can just avoid it by being farther away or finding a safe-spot.
