I was just thinking how it doesn't make much sense that the rune gilded armour is a members only object simply because it doesn't really have a market to sell too.
Rune is mediocre armour, especially now after the update.
If its to show off "wealth" then frankly, it doesn't work. It's cheap to buy and there are much better choices to do that with. Such as the fabled party hat, a Godbow, Power armour, etc.

That's really why I think it should be FTP, it has a market to sell to then, as it stands now it's not really worth much and it shows as how cheap it is now. Yet in OSRS its FTP and each piece is worth up to 4 to 8mil.

Just doesn't make sense to me why certain objects are always only members when they have no real value in members, making their overall price drop significantly.....

Weird.

Could of sworn it used to be F2P.


Me too. If they made it members-only recently (probably with M&S rework) while it used to f2p before you could send a bug report so Jagex can make it f2p again.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

yea i agree it should be made f2p, the reason for the price crash thugh was not becuase of it being p2p, they are expensive in OSRS becuase they look awesome, the new armor is junk and it makes me sad they dont have retro glided armour or something i can buy that makes everybody wearing that ugly ass new armor apear to me to have classic armour.

No support to this. F2p doesn't deserve updates.


Jeez dude, RS3 community is small enough as it is, it's not a smart move to alienate the ftp community. In otherwords, I don't share you view in treating FTP players as second class citizens.

Currently there are:

21,000 players on members worlds.
3,000 players on free worlds.

Of those 3,000 there are probably 100 members just hanging out.

Also there are likely another 500 members playing on alts.

So not only are the actual free players not paying for the product they are using, but they constitute approximately 1/7 or less of the playerbase.

Not saying that I dislike f2p updates, because I actually adore the f2p game and love when it gets better, but let's also take a minute to notice:

They have been given access to the fletching skill

They have benefitted a great deal from the M+S update

They got Gud Raider armor as a high-end thing to strive for, as well as the corrupt dragon and corrupt ancient warrior gear which is less viable but still powerful options to use in end game.

They got access to higher level crossbows and thrown weapons which they never had before, as well as blue dragonhide.

They got access to a bunch of magic armors which they never had in the past.

Anyway f2p does get a fair amount of updates despite not paying for any of them.

Uhh, i dont see the f2p community being "alienated" in any way?...

I mean you lot just got some new armor and possibly ores from the m&s rework so i dont see any need for even more updates atm.

Plus you got fletch as a new skill and loads of others thing a year or so ago.

So yea, the ppl wanting even more things for f2p are the ones who just cbb to pay for membership.

Want better things, get membership.
