Title says it all. Ironmen should be banned from completing these quests as they chose to limit themselves. If exceptions should be made for this, then there's no reason why exceptions shouldn't be made for pures to go back to Ape Atoll. Discuss. The ditch is gonna get endless repolls while sand buckets can pass the first poll and never be implemented. After the ditch passes the 7th poll attempt, it'll be implemented an hour before the poll closes because it's actually important. Deal with it.

It's not reasonable at all.

This bars them from large amounts of content.

The whole point of Ironman is playing solo, but there are some parts of the game where that just isn't really possible.

The reason Ironman accounts aren't allowed to receive help in combat is because it allows for people with items that the Ironman doesn't have to influence the outcome of the fight, allowing for an otherwise unprepared account to get kills they didn't really earn alone.

The Shield of Arrav and Heroes' Quest does not have any such situations. They are designed to be done with another player, and every part of the quests the Ironman participates in can be done without another player helping them in combat.

Similarly, the outcome of minigames like Fishing Trawler are acceptable for Ironmen to participate in because their success in the minigame is not determined by other players. If they don't participate and keep their activity meter up, they get booted out, regardless of how well everyone else is doing.

This is entirely unreasonable.
I'll keep score from now on.

So the point of the ironman game mode is to play solo sometimes and benefit from group content when it's convenient for them?

No. Learn to read.

I'm saying that they don't benefit from group content like Fishing Trawler because others' participation has no impact on their reward.

They still have to play solo.

If an Ironman hits the Corporeal Beast once, then lets someone else kill it, and they get the reward, they aren't playing solo. However, if an Ironman goes into the Fishing Trawler, fills one leak, then AFKs, they get kicked. They have to play.

They are still playing solo, because others' participation in the Fishing Trawler doesn't affect the outcome for the Ironman.

I can't help but laugh at this.

Are you an Ironman?

If not, how do you speak for us? You just seem like an angry and jealous kid, for whatever reason.

Also, us ironmen enjoy the idea of achieving things on our own, but we still love teamwork and minigames.

It seems you know nothing about ironmen, so don't comment. No one is taking you seriously anyway...

I say that about most of their suggestions, really.

Problem is the forum moderators don't realize these suggestions are just trolling attempts, purposely making horrible suggestions to stir up drama. I report all of these horrible ideas because it's quite obvious this person doesn't actually want these things to happen, and just wants to piss off whoever the suggestion is meant to hurt. In this case, it's Ironmen.

Then, because I brought up the obvious fact this suggestion isn't a real suggestion and is just trying to cause drama, my post gets hidden and I get banned.

And people wonder why no one goes to the forums.

IF this sounds like a troll attempt, then what do you call all the spite voting against PKers while catering to ironmen who are trash at the game? The ditch is gonna get endless repolls while sand buckets can pass the first poll and never be implemented. After the ditch passes the 7th poll attempt, it'll be implemented an hour before the poll closes because it's actually important. Deal with it.

And not letting pures back onto Ape Atoll bars them from a chinning spot or having Barrows gloves. What's your point?
