It seems like the playerbase didn't really understand what it was supporting with the attack mode update. Jagex seemed to acknowledge that there might be some pures accidentally gaining xp right after the update, but I don't see this as being a temporary problem.

It sounded like the update would just allow us to keep the attack style after switching weapons. In reality, it seems to make each weapon have it's own attack style, with accurate being the default. Meaning, we have to reset every weapon in our bank. This is a terrible update, and I don't think it's what people wanted. Please consider polling undoing it. I'm not a pure, so this isn't personal to me, it's just a QOL thing for me. This is wildly inconvenient. And, while I am against updates that cater to pures, I wouldn't feel bad about rolling this back for them as it was totally out of left field in the first place.

It passed the poll, so it's here to stay.

It makes absolutely no sense that they'd poll its removal immediately after it passed a poll and was added just because some people don't like it.

I also don't buy this excuse that people didn't know what they were voting for. Some people just didn't read the updates or pay attention to the attack style they were using.

There was also a bug that was fixed VERY quickly and actually affected a very small number of people, but now thousands of people are claiming they were affected by this bug. They weren't; that was just user error.

No support.
I'll keep score from now on.

Support. Could Jagex poll it in the same devious way that they polled ironman mode?

Can't see any reason not to support this btw.

Here's 52,519 reasons to not support this:

88% of voters wanted this change, and you want to undo it because you're one of the 12%? That's not how this works, bud.

Good luck turning that 12% into 75% or more.

Integrity fixes need not be subject to a poll, nubnub. Just wait on PKer-only polls. :)
Git gud, L2ward nubnubs.

This isn't an integrity fix. Clearly so, since they polled adding it the in the first place.

Not happening. Keep dreaming, though.

Obviously it's had unintended consequences that weren't likely properly thought through.

There were no unintended consequences. It works as intended.

It's just that people aren't paying attention and are getting XP they didn't want. That's their fault, not Jagex's.
