I have been playing warbands for several months. I wait for the wbs to start on the dot, and immediately go to the camp on my world.

Even so, I don't get the full rewards for warbands. I participate, but according to the FCs and their rules, I play wrongly. I'm a leech, apparently. I don't play the way wbs is meant to be played.

How can I? Everyone else "participating" is touting max accounts, have friends backing them up and have bigger banks that losing their wbs preset won't even affect their overall gameplay.

For me, buying tank armor at my max tier (combat 93) costs me 5~10% of my total wealth. To the maxed "participants", their royal dhide FC preset which is tankier, costs probably >1% of their total wealth.

How is it so that even though I do my best to make myself a harder target for my level, I'm still considered as not participating (and thus deserve no reward)? I resent the philosophy that warbands FCs are built on (exclusionism), and I know for a fact that in RS3, a cb 95 will never be able to kill a maxed character.

For people like me, it's either join an FC and "participate" in their interpretation of the activity just to get the rewards, or begone. I thought the game was supposed to be for everyone to play? But no, if you're not playing to the whims of a single person, or a select group of people, you can't play.

I know Jagex is taking time to shine up the endgame on the PvM side. But if your biggest and baddest xp per minute activity, which acts as an unofficial fast forward for lower leveled people to high levels, and most of the game, are controlled by a bunch of players who willingly deprive other people of gameplay and rewards, you have a serious issue.

Let the warbands FCs organise and fight the wars they want to fight. Let them swing their e-peens all they want against other organised groups.

But protect the solo players who are just trying to play the game at their own pace, and just happened to log in at the right time of day.

Be patient. I'm a solo player, and while it'd probably be generous to claim that I secure about 40% of all my attempts, I've been able to find success here and there. Lately I've found that it's safer to wait until close before it despawns; most of the FCs tend to have moved on by then. You also have to be ready to run at a moment's notice. If someone teleports in, you've got about a second to get a head start before the Ice spells start to fly.

But honestly, what you're describing is the Warbands working as intended. You're walking into one of the most contested hot zones of the entire enterprise and putting a literal target on your back-- of course people are going to shoot at it. People like us are supposed to be easy prey for a prepared group. That's one of the principles the entire Wilderness was founded on. Hell, you could say that you're supposed to fight Warbands with a Warband of your own.

We're not supposed to be "protected". It's the Wilderness.
