The draw to osrs is that it was supposed to be a version of the game we all loved, with changes only coming after a community poll.

You can't go and nerf one of the most iconic runescape items, without consulting the community and continue to call yourself a community run game.

Jagex has shown time and time again they dont know what is best for the game, which is why; i assume they set up the polling system.

Poll the g maul changes or my membership is being retracted.

Well if the community would vote for whats best for the game and not for whats best for themselves then Jagex wouldnt have to take actions into their own hands.

Most of the votes would be PVM'ers and skillers like myself. And tbh we have no idea about the finer details of the pvp world.

Therefor it's not something that makes sense to poll. Just like the mep2 quest details shouldnt have been polled (what percentage of voters have both done mep2 and remember the whole quest?!?).

Not saying I agree with the nerf, just pointing out that the majority of voters in the poll wouldnt know what they are talking about.

What is best for the game is NOT what is a tiny minority WANTS.

That is what the dev has decided is "integrity".
Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

"lost their integrity"?

Hmm.. maybe they've "found" it.. there was never supposed to be polls in the first place.. we didn't get enough votes for old school for polls to be a part of it.

Regardless of what I think about the devs.. I don't believe for a minute that they're trying to ruin the game.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.. there will come a point where everybody will experience an update or change that THEY are unhappy with.

That's just the way it is. =)

There are new players now, and there come new expectations and new gaming preferences. The differences in opinions can only be a lot bigger when more partners come.

The 75% threshold is pretty hard to achieve in many situations. I called it long ago when Jagex found different excuses to not honor pool results as well as re-polling and then re-re-polling some of them.

Of course, they are hiding intermediate pool results until the end of the polls, hence making the polling process opaque. Then now, they further divided polls into different more categories.

Eventually, the OSRS polling system will be exactly like RS3's - nothing is guaranteed unless the polls are explicitly said to be guaranteed. The writing has been on the wall for over a year already. :D

The community literally supported botting LOL. You think you guys deserve to decide what gets added into the game? Don't be immature brats who get PKed in the part of the game specifically made for PKing and then cry when you lose the ability to do so. Congrats on taking away polling from everyone for your shortsightedness. L2PK nubnubs. Can't do that? L2escape nubnubs. Can't do that either? L2not enter the wilderness nubnubs.

No one gives a fuck about some dead content servers. They tried that and lost players. When they buffed revs, the player counter exploded and only tanked again once they were nerfed. Get the difference or is that too much for you to comprehend, nubnub?

That first sentence is accurate. That's why the tiny minority of spite voters are no longer allowed to decide shit. They've proven themselves to he extremely immature, self-entitled, and arrogant unlike the PKers who aren't entitled snowflakes and actually risk for their content instead of doing content that takes zero effort and is easily gold farmed such as Kingdom and herb runs. You guys brought this upon yourselves with your immaturity. Your only option now is to shut up and accept the consequences.

That second sentence is a lying. Quit lying, dibby.
