"if you don't like it, don't participate," yes--that is a valid response, one that has been used more often than skilling events



Good that you agreed with that and it pretty much answered your questions.

Does this event "suck" players away from other activities. Maybe not, because some players who may not have even logged in or stayed as long in the game may just selected to participate in this event. They may be watching a movie otherwise.

And for those who are "sucked" off, say, Anachronia, it is only
natural selection
.

When two love the same love, one love has to lose
And it's the Skill Off event which they long for, it's the Crater they will choose. :)

No point in making an iron account now.


Why not? It is about self discipline. I don't see attending a live event is not allowed by the Ironman description page. It is up to you to go to events or not. If you really think live events are not good for ironman, don't go then.

Not-so-great features about the Skill-Off:
-Purely afk. I know people tout easy fast xp, but games are meant to be played. Workstations at an event need more interaction, more movement.


I beg to differ.

Just because you seemingly don't like to afk things doesn't mean there shouldn't be an option for others who do.

There's a difference between an option to AFK and content not being interactive at all. This content did not support interaction beyond clicking once every 5 minutes.


So are pickpocketing and mining Seren Stone in Priffdinas or hitting a combat dummy at the Combat Academy. But so what?

If I wanted to I can do this event on 100 alts. Priff elves are not 100% afk as they can still catch you. Seren stones require occasionally clicking for max efficiency. This event is 100% Automated excluding logout timer. Ive been doing this event on 2 alts got 92 dung and 96 dung so far.


For those who care about AFKable content, they don't really care about max efficiency, otherwise very few will AFK Serenity Posts or mine Seren Stones.

There is a always a trade-in between efficiency and convenience. But again, our choices, our powers. Powers to the players. :)

kinda like turning up to the olypmics to run a marathon, to find everyone is riding hover boards that fly at 170mph, and being told "if you dont like it dont go to the olympics"

i.e. it completely and utterly misses the entire point

if you want loads of easy free xp and rigged competition, u have normal main mode runescape for that, i agree it sucks letting iron men do it

(i intentionally avoid thee events on my ironman to maintain its integrity, but its still human nature to be peeved about the degradation of integrity even when its not directly affecting you

although, having said this, i know you dont actually care EITHER way and are just arguing against op because arguing against OP's on RS forums is basically your excuse for a social life lol


Olympics have their requirements. Runescape has it own.

Professionals can't compete in Olymphics. However, everybody, including Ironmen are allowed to "compete" in Summer Skill-Off.

You need to realize every event offered by every entity has its own rule. If you are not an amateur or you refuse not to use other aids like hover boards, you don't belong in he Olympics. Understand?

To be more precise, professional athletes can compete in Olympics under some requirements, but I don't think Marathon runners are allowed to use hover boards as Vaseth mentioned.

Ironman can participate in Summer Skill-Off because there is no rule prohibiting them to participate in events, as long as they comply with other Runescape rules such as they don't bot and don't use hover boards.

So professionals can compete in the olympics, so you were wrong, that's fine.


There are requirements depending on the Committees. They will make sure participants all compete in fair ground, like is it fair to allow Andy Ruiz Jr and Anthony Joshua or the entire Brazillian National Soccer team to participate.

Summer Skill-Off had its own rule too, and Ironmen were not ruled out and I did not see them using hover boards. :D
