I'm an older player who hasn't been active on RuneScape since the transition to EoC combat several years ago. When I played RuneScape back in the day, I wasn't playing to max skills or get cosmetics. I was playing for the player verse player mini-games. Specifically, I was playing for Clan Wars. Clan Wars was HUGE back in the day. Yes, it wasn't an efficient method of getting xp. Yes, you didn't get rewards playing it. But it was so much FUN. You played it because it was FUN.

I believe there's people like me who would come back to play RS if they could relive those FUN days. The problem is, those who haven't played are severely disadvantaged with the new styles of play (like EoC) and all the new equipment that can be very expensive and difficult to obtain. Perks to the wealthy and those who have too much time on their hands.

I'm proposing here a version of Clan Wars be released that does the following:

1. You can set handicaps for ALL players to make Clan Wars fair and enjoyable for ALL players.

Handicaps can include: Being able to set all players who enter the portal to a certain combat level (i.e. level 3 or level 126). Being able to set combat to legacy only. Being able to give all players who enter the portal the same equipment, food, potions, etc. Not making the handicaps too complicated, but having easy defaults that could be something like: ALL players are Level 126 with rune armour/weapon options, 24 lobsters, and 4 strength potions.

2. Bringing back nostalgia by restoring the old Clan Wars location.

3. To appeal to cosmetics lovers, have Clan Wars capes, that upgrade based on experience (high kill count or low death count). Teams can either use common team capes to identify themselves, or clan wars capes tailored to team colors. Think strategy here. Targets!

Overall, what made Clan Wars FUN was the STRATEGY and SOCIALIZATION. Make Clan WARS FUN AGAIN!

The focus of RS players has gone too xp instead of fun the last years. Minigames are as good as dead, only the spotlight system makes some of them active enough to play them properly.

And clans are propably busy trying to keep their citadel at tier 7 instead of fighting other clans.

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

I'm not trying to argue against the point you were trying to make, but I have a problem with this sentence. It takes like 10-15 mins to cap, and maintaining t7 cit only needs 1-2 people to cap. No clan is really "busy" trying to maintain the upkeep.

Is it that simple? I heard elsewehere that some clans have real trouble maintaining their citadel.

You can thank Shauny for the changes he's done last year.

I am not sure how much it is the fault of the gameplay it isn't so much played anymore. Cosmetics as a small incentive doesn't sound too bad though, they certainly shouldn't add 'real' rewards, since those would get boosted the hell out of them.

I guess it basically all was cut by 5. Also the former avatar buff which helped to gather resources faster also was drastically buffed (25 to 50 % or something like this?)
