Hey guys, could we get permadeath for HCIM like is present in rs3? This means that HCIM that die would have their accounts locked and unplayable.

I'm unsure about the items that allow them to turn to regular ironmen if they die, and I'm unsure about the purchase of extra lives.

What do you guys think about making HCIM in osrs as difficult as in rs3? :)

Not bad, but i'd prefer it to be "locked out of your account....unless you reset that account from tutorial island"

Saves people having to create a new-email and spending $20-30 just to get the same username back.

Ehh, they could change name on the website? Else Jagex is losing out on revenue for membership prepurchased before they died which expires in say 1 year's time after death. If a player starts a new account they'll have to buy more membership.

Huh? if you don't have membership on the account that died then you'd have to buy membership even if your trying to change it from the website.

Consider this:
I buy 12 months of membership on my HCIM but die after one month. The last 11 months of membership were paid for but can't be used. I name change using the website (we could remove the name saving feature for these accounts). I then create a new HCIM, buy membership and take my old name. Jagex received double membership revenue for the 11 months.

Yeah....but all that's doing is screwing over the player who payed for membership.
If i payed for 11 months of membership then i should be able to use that entire 11 months of membership.

Either way with both your suggestion and mine a person would have to start back form level 1... it's just im trying to suggest it in a way that doesn't screw over the players.

Why can HCIM not have a way to regain their status by doing Hard-Core things within the game, like dominating the Wilderness.

Give them that, & only let them farm certain items that can only come into the Game via HCIM.

It's just a cheap money grab & a waste of Players' time now.

1 Blackout & 1 year's worth of progress is wasted.

The entire State of S.A lost power twice last year.
....... West & drop a single ore.

Well your state losing power has nothing to do with Jagex at all, they can't control if your computer suddenly shuts off. that shouldn't be on them lol.

and HCIM should not have HCIM specific items, the entire purpose of the game is to do everything a normal player does by yourself, giving them their own unique perks goes against this.

Even as HCIM myself i wouldn't want that, or the ability to regain my HCIM status at zero risk.

If you can regain it with no penalty then it makes the one death mechanics literally useless.

Support. OSRS is too easyscape as is. RS3 has more punishing death mechanics. 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.

This would have to qualify as integrity since the easyscape community would never vote in a nerf though.
