V1000+

1) No, training spots only get more crowded. Why do you think the new dungeon is here?
2) No, I wishfully to do Telos, AoD, Nex, ... in peace, not with a laggy world.
3) No, There are some people (which I disagree with), that do not like crowded places (see complaints for pets, portables, particles, ...)
4) No, a lot of worlds have activities in them, W54 being sandcasino, W2 trading, Pengs, etc. With less worlds, these may have to adapt or be removed.
5) No, means that a few home worlds have to go for people, idr if you remember, but that didn't turn out to be great on the forum, nor Reddit.
6), ...

Have more points, but tbh, this is already enough to say no support.

Yea, a little lag might happen here and there, but it's not like it's going to be an insane amount if balanced correctly!

Solutions to save the company money for hosting less servers as well.


So less worlds means more people on a world, which means better hardware for their servers for their upkeep. Which means more costs. Huh?

I don't know how Jagex hosts their servers, either it be intern or extern at a cloud provider. Hopefully extern with a wider range of BGP connections available, monitoring 24/7 with a serious plan with 99.9% uptime. But with every cloud provider, the better hardware you choose, the more costs you will have.

You make it sound as if it is nothing.
During BXPW you could see that literally every activity has an enormous delay in world 84. Even bank skills. IIR reading on Reddit 2 seconds per action, idk what that is in game ticks, but heck fucking no thank you. It was actually better to deploy your own portables at a different world than leeching in W84.

But given your stats and forum profile age, I can only guess you haven't been around for that long & most likely haven't seen the old laggy days of Runescape. I don't blame you for making this thread..

Anyway, not gonna lie, but I'd love to see more people as well and IMO best solution is to minimize as much as possible instanced areas in and around Gielinor. But the impact of fewer worlds is unbearable. This is not an assumption, this is a fact - see the older years of Runescape or.. probably best... OSRS. (Or b0aty his hardcore ironman status lol).

Even if there were worlds with 2000 players in it, you woudn't see much of it anyway.
Runescape gotten so big, that it is rare to see players at non-cities or populair spots.
&Gielinor has so much instanced areas.

Thanks for the bump^ Free bump for less worlds woot!

Let's hope RS3 mobile bring's a lot of new players.



Less worlds will do nothing to make new players join.



Less world's = world's not as empty meaning when they walk around they don't feel as if the game is dead! So ya it don't bring new player's to the game but will help them stay.

Also they could run into more player's who might talk/help them, maybe even recruit them to a clan guide them on there journey.

A game that looks full will for-sure bring more players in. YouTube reviews of channels saying this game or that game has no player base then advising viewers to avoid that game ect...


Sure, a crowded world looks awesome, especially for new players. Probably everyone in this thread agrees with you on this part, and I am glad that players think about this as well, instead of just new updates.

But worlds that are barely (and unplayable for activities like PvM, lolpvp and minigames) playable due to the lagg, and especially at this era of gaming in general, I extremely doubt that new players will even play further if they continuously keep lagging


Given all posts, nobody actually seemed to give a good solution to my first post on page 1.
Reduce worlds is anything but a solution, heck even if it was just temporarily.
