Why not ban any account created before runescape 3 was released from transferring? Only allow originals to transfer and have a separate high score sheet for them? I know i cna vouche for many friends who quit because of the horrible rs3, they would return and become members which would increase jagex income from this game. Those of us who played when we were younger enjoying the game who can now afford to play have lost our game and would love to finish where we started. It's easy to tell someone to "suck it up and restart"
Game developers nowadays don't have the passion for gaming like they did in the past.Old schooler that loves OSRS but no longer has the time to restart
OSRS is not the same game as pre RS3; osrs differs so much from original versions of the game at this point that there isn't really a good time to say "it is fair for accounts before this time to transfer".
Anyway, starting a new account is pretty fun since you level up so fast and get to experience all of the quests again. I started a new account as an iron man and have enjoyed it a lot. I encourage everyone to try out a new account and not worry to much about being high level.
I just want to be that person to point out how most supportive responses are respectful and nice, whereas the "do not support" comments are mostly rude, including the words "cry" or "complain" or "get lost" or "deal with it" rather than adding constructive criticism.
10 years of RuneScape and counting!

Going to say no support on this one. If something like this was in place, then it would have needed to be in place either when the OSRS game was released, or shortly after. It's far too late now to do this as many have spent a lot of time and hard work getting to where they are now. There's also the issue that gaining XP in RS3 is a lot faster than OSRS, so one could max their RS3 account and then transfer it to OSRS. Whereas a strictly OSRS only player would spend a lot longer getting the same achievement which simply just isn't fair
I completely agree pip
Also I’m unsure why you think everyone quit when eoc was released because I play both rs3 and old school everyday and consistently both sets of servers have plenty of players and in fact a lot of people I know play both games side by side and just to be clear, rs3 isn’t limited to eoc you can actually change your combat and layout to legacy mode and there are a lot of people that actually prefer eoc anyways.This is a signature

There are plenty of people that wish this was a thing as well, Countless of hours on runescape back in the day. And everyone didn't like the initial idea of starting over, however, the release of oldschool was, and still is one of my favorite memories about this game.
The same game that we all know and love, with a brand new economy, new accounts and everyone rushing security stronghold for that massive 10,000 gp increase in your bank value.
I think it's a good thing that skills didn't transfer over, perhaps a cosmetic rewards based on total level could be a thing, however.
It just sucks for some people who quit playing due to the changes. My main was created in the basic, original runescape and I quit playing when they started the whole PK world thing, etc, etc. So I was hoping that when OSRS came out, that I could play on there and I'd still be considered "old school." Instead, I basically lost that account and all the time/money put into it because I completely refuse to play this garbage RS3 thing. I do enjoy starting over and such, but that's why I also had 8 accounts back in the day, lol.
