Unrestricted Worlds have the potential to be the biggest-picture update since OSRS launched. Should it be temporary?

Runescape is an incredible game featuring a unique blend of solo and group content. Currently, a lot of the best content heavily favors groups of high level accounts. Unrestricted Worlds give ALL the players access to the games best content, regardless of their account builds.

Those with limited account builds or are skillers, pures or PKers, often do not have access to that same content, especially when trying to group with friends or other players.

With Unrestricted Worlds, Jagex can open Runescape up to more players while giving its existing players the opportunity to occasionally play the game differently than they normally would.

Note that progress is not saved on these worlds so your character will be temporary and reset each time they log in. Unrestricted Worlds won't impact the economy or the legitimacy of players hard-earned accounts in the actual game.

Why is this temporary?

No. If you voluntarily limit yourself by choosing to be a skiller,pure, Pk'er whatever then you have to accept BOTH the advantages AND disadvantages of that style.

There is literally no reason for them to be handed everything for free.

Again...no.

If you want that high level content? then actually play the game and earn it yourself.

There isn't a single reason why literally THE ENTIRE GAME should be handed to people for free just for logging in.

Making these worlds permenant would completely kill the game.

Why bother playing and leveling up your skills when literally every single item is handed to you for free?

Even if your stats don't transfer over who cares, when you have 99 in everything you can do whatever you want.

Terrible idea....absolutely 0% support~

It's common for such a strong idea to be very polarizing. You are forgetting some very key concepts:

1) You make a pretty bold statement here: "then actually play the game and earn it yourself" - in anticipation of this type of response, I made it pretty clear that Runescape is a great game because "playing the game" means something different for everyone else, and maxing everything to 99 isn't the "right" way to play

2) Being handed everything for free- you have to remember that everything is temporary, you lose everything every single time you log in. This doesn't effect you, your main, or the economy in ANY WAY shape or

1. If you have literally every item in the game....all the gold you could ever want...AND all your skills at 99....what else is there to do?

it gives you quite literally 100% completion of the game...ALL thats left to do is risk free PVP....because again...it's not tied o your account at all. so you can fight in any armour and lose literally nothing.

Sooo much of the player base would do it for say...a week maybe, then get bored of the game and never play it again. it would kill the game impossibly fast.

And even if it doesn't tie to your main account...it still gives you literally EVERY item and max stats...all you have to do is log into that world everytime.

If theres a world that gives you literally everything just for doing nothing then half the community will never touch the game again.

Plus the fun of PVP isn't the combat mechanics itself lol.

It's killing someone strong and getting armour/drops as a reward.

2. again...as long as you constantly log into these worlds you will ALWAYS have every single item, every stat maxed, and ZERO risk on death.

It is quite literally, giving you everything in the game....just for logging in....who cares about trading on the G.E when you have literally every item in the game.

If thats not everything handed to you for free i don't know what is.

What is an "unrestricted world"? They're called tournament worlds but yeah they should be open, at least 1 will be fine. Good for testing and just having fun on the game and makes fun things like Clan War, Castle War, BA, Group Bossing and such open to new friends joining up on mobile.

It should also be like the raids test one back when Theatre of Blood was released allowing us full access to the world.

These worlds usually become dead after a week or so, so I like that they close and reopen regularly. Means there's a point right after it opens where it's pretty active. Keeping it up 24/7 would probably mean it'd be dead 24/7.

I just like using unrestricted worlds for practicing pvm. I still want to earn stuff, but save myself the billions of gp I would lose trying to beat ToB...

I don't understand why everyone is getting so angry about this. This would not affect the game in any way except that players would get better. I was hoping these worlds would stick around so I could practice PvP and bossing. There is no affect to the actual game and anyone who thinks an all access server would make people stop playing is a babbling buffoon. People would still like to earn real items and grind their skills in the actual game, sometimes its just fun to sit back and goof around with fantasy stats and gear. I think keeping all access worlds would also cut back on the desire and creation of private servers. I have had many friends tell me they seek private servers because they want to practice pking or fighting Jad etc. If Jagex kept all access worlds, less people would resort to private servers and I think private servers in the long run would just die out.

Make all access worlds permanent!
Play the victim and you will be the victim.
