For those of you who are not familiar with Duel Tournaments, this is how it worked:

"On 20 November, 2007, A new way of participating in the Duel Arena called tournament mode was added. Up to 64 players can compete and the entry fee is based on the registrar the tournament is being held from; up to 1 million coins on register 5 for a 64 player tournament.

In the Tournament dungeon, 5 registrars hold 5 different tournaments with random rules varying on difficulties. The rules might include food or potion usage, healing between rounds and special attacks, although some rules never change.

All combat styles are always allowed (to discourage real world trading) and there are rarely ever obstacles. Additionally, winning or losing against a player will affect the winner's and loser's tournament rank. If a weak player loses against a high levelled player the tournament points won or lost won't be of much significance.

Tournaments are also restricted with a range of tournament ranks allowed; the tournament value depends on the set of rules and the rank range allowed. It also affects the players rank more or less at the end of the tournament respecting to its value.

On 20 October 2009, the tournaments were reworked in response to player feedback asking for fairer fights. As a result, registrars are now assigned on entry to the waiting area based on a player's highest status in strength/range/magic.

Each registrar now has a rank cap limit, incrementing in 500s; Registrar 1 has a rank cap of 1999, Registrar 4 has a cap of 3499, and Registrar 5 has no rank cap. Ranks are now secured at every 500 milestone. If a player has a rank of 1754, said player cannot fall below a rank of 1500.

Rewards have also been affected: first place in a tournament will only receive 80% of entry fees, and second place now receives 20%. "

Disagree. Never got into these. Weren’t fun, deserve to be dead content


If you don't like it you don't have to go. You not liking something is not a reason as to why it shouldn't exist. You aren't the only person that plays Runescape and updates aren't based on what only you like or don't like.

Haha! Yes! Bring back Duel Tournaments for sure! Why haven't I thought of this... I was thinking though, for PvP there needs to be a new ability system that's competitively scalable in skill to use. This means that if you are skilled enough, you can out-smart your opponent to bring the quickest deaths to players not as fast or skilled as you. This would mean being able to fight multiple players by yourself! (if you're that legendary). But no, yes, Duel Tournaments need to come back, it was a lot of fun I remember. But the rewards have to be good enough to prevent it from becoming dead content and do it right the next time! (no pressure).

I cannot stand people who are so stubborn to not consider someone's suggested vision of new content as if they know from the start whether your idea will make it or not. Content suggestion creators should have the authority to just color their post as red to indicate they're a hater. (LOL, seriously though).
