Since becoming a member removes the trade limit and as someone who wishes to remain F2P, would it be possible to use one or many bonds to remove the limit permanantly? I understand the use of the limit, but if someone abusing some game mechanics can just get a bond to become member and transfer wealth, why not let people use a bond to remove said limit without losing their F2P status?

If you feel only one bond would be too little a price to pay, I'd suggest something such as 1 bond removes the limit for 1 month, 2 bonds for 3/6months, 3 bonds permanently. Seeing how only 1 bond is needed to become member... Or maybe the account should be over x time old? Or have x amount of playtime on it?

This might not make sense to some people but there are clans and exp trackers online that will not accept you because you were member once, even if you never logged on a member world. I think F2P has enough restrictions as is, trade limit should be removable.

Those must be some weird xp trackers...
I'm sure there are normal xp trackers around that are not so unfriendly to members...

One I use keeps members on their hiscores but stop updating their stats.

you can use bond to "become member" but stay in ftp worlds


No I can't. It would flag my account with a member status even if I never log in a member's world.

why even use this tacker?

and if this is the case, the people on these hiscores will also have this trade limit. as they obviously have never got members if youll get "flagged"

so you are wanting an unfair advantage on this hiscores

Some of these players have been around since before the trade limit. When it was removed, F2P lost it too then it was reintroduced to new F2P accounts only. I use this hiscore as a mean to compare with other F2P players only. The trade limit is applied to me giving out money... I can receive 2b but can only give out 25k, I don't see how this is an advantage for myself.


1) I know that. But there is a F2P only community and it is competitive.

2) It is possible to know if someone became a member or not. I don't remember how, but it was showing on the website not in-game. I'll try to see where I saw that information, might have been explained in-game in Free Players cc I'm not sure.

3) I do have 2 member accounts, hell I bought RuneCoins on this F2P Skiller for cosmetics. All I want is to be able to give out more than 25k.

I highly doubt it would make too much of a difference if a player were to buy membership, keys, runecoins - or something else to be honest. They've spent money (or someone else's money) after all. Improvements: Tooltip / (F2P) QoL v2
