I just completed the very unfair Galvek fight - the second time. The first time I was hit by a tidal wave and died. As such I lost my hardcore status at the overall rank of 135.

Here's an idea that would allow HCIM to retain their hardcore status. The only thing I feel really strongly about is that we should not have to do all of the quests all over again. If you have done the quests 10+ times it is isn't fair to make us redo them. Of course, any items that are obtained during the quest would need to be re-obtained or shouldn't work until the player reaches the necessary levels.

At the extreme end, perhaps you allow Ironmen to regain their hardcore status by speaking to Adam in Lumbridge and forfeiting all of their coins, XP, items, achievements and Zeah favour. The only thing they would retain is their quest completion log. This would allow ironmen to keep their same account and email address.

A more moderate solution would be to offer ironmen the option to purchase back their hardcore status from Adam for a reduction of 10 levels in every skill and 10 million coins. You could also limit that option to those ironmen with only one death. This way HCIM, (such as those who die during the very unfair Galvek fight), could pay the penalty and keep their status.

If they took either option their position on the hardcore list would be un-skulled and their level would be recalculated with their new skill totals. It would also allow the player to keep playing hardcore without setting up a new account and email address.

You don't need to bump a thread literally 4 minutes after you posted it.

Also, hell no.

You died. You clearly deserve to lose your hardcore status. That's the whole point of the challenge. Being able to buy back your status would utterly violate the integrity of the challenge of HCIM.
I'll keep score from now on.

Maybe I can compromise with this. If you get your account completely reset, all items deleted everything lvl1 etc and sent back to tutorial island, I can support them giving you your status back. I actually think hcim should spawn on tutorial island instead of Lumbridge when they die, that'd genuinely be a 'hardcore' game mode

Poll it.
Some things shouldn't even be polled. Letting HCIM die and remain HCIM is one of those things.

That could be good. An option to restart your account or respawn as an Ironman would be fine.

The biggest reason I'd want to start over as a HCIM is existing membership time and not having to make a new account.

Personally, I don't think that either of you are representative of the community. If they polled it, I believe it would pass handily.
Are you serious..?

That sound marvellous! I would definitively vote for that if it was polled.

Really?

I highly doubt that since hardcore was designed for this very purpose.
The shadow of truth and justice will always triumph.

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.
