Prestige Poll Results

We polled, you answered!

Over 60% of you voted against the addition of the Prestige System to RuneScape. While it's clear that many of you want to see aspirational content and competition at the higher end of the game, Prestige isn't the form that you want to see it in. Mod Pips will be posting a more detailed breakdown of the voting soon, but the result is pretty clear. The Prestige System is not going into the game.

Personally, I’m pleased with this outcome. I’d much rather start from scratch than release something that doesn’t work for the players it’s supposed to please.

We’ve also had a lot of feedback from you all. Most of it was really constructive, such as "I would have voted for Prestige if..." or "I didn’t vote for Prestige because..." or even "Instead of Prestige, why not implement..." Thanks so much for this, and keep it coming. Even if you don’t see a JMod respond, that doesn’t mean we’re not taking note of it. Devs and players working together: this is what we meant by "Made by You".

So, what happens next?

We’re going to re-evaluate both our goals and our implementation in light of what you’ve told us. With your feedback at the fore, we're going to think of new ideas that meet your expectations and fit in with the way you want to play RuneScape. Whether we come up with a single system or a choice of multiple systems, we'll work with you to decide what goes into the game. We're definitely not abandoning the idea of aspirational content, but we want to make sure we do it in a way that you're happy with.

Ugh, I wanted prestige. All the whiny little kids ruined it even though it was completely optional content that they didn't even have to take part in. I saw a ton of people who couldn't be bothered reading the dev blog and just jumped on the bandwagon.

Allow me to be the first to say thank you for listening. I voted in favor of prestige because I liked the idea, but it's clear that the majority of the community didn't like it, and therefore I'm happy to see you were willing to reconsider implementing it.

Wasted 8,5mill on logs i already bought 1 week before you added the poll and also wasted 500k bonus exp in firemaking that i won't use at all, so lame i can't refund the bonus exp and put it into a diffrent skill like divination.

Great job to the whining ppl that can't take any change.


Edit:

Also Jagex why did you made that fail poll option in the first place?
Why only a Yes and a No option?


9 / 10 ("no";) comments were all about the highscore.

Better poll option:

How would you like to see the prestige system?

A. Prestige with highscore
B. Prestige without highscore
C. No prestige

And you're whining about not getting it, despite the majority voting against it... what a community RuneScape has.

You had time to sell the logs back after you saw the first day of poll results roll-in... At this point, it's only your fault, assuming you still have them. Besides, who would waste XP on firemaking over another skill (such as craft, agility, or, like you said, divination)?
