Draco Burnzsaid: Gravy Bobssaid: Possibly, while Solo IMM is meant to remain solo; group IMM could POSSIBLY be intended for groups of friends to play IMM together and be able to help only their specific team out.
Did you not read what i said?
Just having a "group" ironman would defeat the whole purpose of the mode.
What I was trying to say was: Jagex could be trying to create 2 separate IMM's; 1 ironman mode for solo challenge purposes while the other IMM for playing with a few more players just for fun.
I wouldn't say it defeats the whole purpose of the game mode since its actually introducing a new separate gamemode with similar mechanics.
Maybe the soling is gone but players must still do everything from scratch without the help of the outside like usual. Also they cannot use the G.E; that alone makes quite a difference.
tl;dr: Normal IMM could be about oneself being self sufficient while GIMM would be about encouraging the group to work together to be self sufficient.
^Thus creating a new challenge revolving around teamwork. But obviously wont be considered as challenging as normal IMM; maybe more collaborative and enjoyable I suppose.

I'm going to need to take a LONG shower after saying this but... I agree... With Draco... Burnz...
Ugh. I feel so dirty now. But he's right. Even 2 Irons working together completely defeats the purpose. Hell, Iron Mode isn't even that hard, at least not in F2P, I did that on an HC account I made a little while ago. It was a complete joke. I'm confident P2P would be harder 100% solo, but still, it's certainly doable so I don't see the reason to have a new limited co-op version of Iron Mode.
You can play Iron Mode with friends as it is now. You can help each other by providing tips, or showing them how to get to a certain area, or, in the case of combat, by using that Provoke ability, and I wouldn't be surprised if Lunar and Seren spells worked as well. Want Co-op Iron Mode? You already have it. You just need to think outside the box. Expecting the devs to make a separate Iron Mode just so you can trade with a couple select friends is just silly.
