Well, I wanted prestige, but I have to admit, this is a good thing. Even if I personally wanted it, I don't want to see something put into the game that will make everyone else complain.

What I'm really hoping for next is a system similar to prestige, but with all the major problems fixed.

Problems I noticed many players had with the system

- a painful back stab to pretty much anyone in the top couple thousand on the hiscores.
- The fact that players will feel the game is incompleteable.

Solution

Well, there are several ways to fix that first bullet, but pretty much nothing to fix the second one other than keeping the game the way it is.

- You could simply combine the hiscores together, but make them sortable by highest xp or highest prestige, and leave highest xp as default, to make prestige seem more secondary and optional.
- You could also award any xp exceeding level 99 BEFORE this was implemented to someone who has prestiged either in the form of bonus xp, or getting as much as it takes to reach 99 again all at once after the player has reached 90 again and continuing every prestige until its all used up.

You're probably going to go back to the drawing board on this one though and develop something completely different, which I think is a real shame. I think if this was adjusted to the way most players want it before release, it would have been awesome.

You know what would be interesting? If Jagex starting making more polls like this, based off of what the community wants and not based off of things Jagex already made or are planning to do. Like if they had a poll about making replayable quests, even if they weren't planning on doing so, and 80% of people voted yes, perhaps their thought process would change.

Long story short, it'd be cool if Jagex listened to our wants and didn't try to decide what they think we want.

EDIT: Lol or even better, have a poll that says: "Are you pleased with Jagex's performance?"
Maybe that'd be an eye opener. Although, right now it seems to me they're heading back in the right direction, I was very disappointed in their performance in 2012, and even some of 2013. It was like they weren't listening to their player base at all. I'm hoping before they release any more game changing content in the future, they'll make polls like these about it.

I am grateful they did this, even though I voted yes. I'm really interested in seeing what they come up with to fix it.

I still think we need some sort of prestige system, especially since we're starting to get into the 100s of people with max xp. But the one suggested here just wouldn't have worked, because it'd reset a lot of people's progress. And in a game that's all about making progress, that's kind of dumb.

I'd really like this idea to be revisited where the prestige happens at 200M. I've been tracking my Thieving xp past 200M with Rune Metrics (the only reason I'm still doing it is to try to get that stupid pet), but it's definitely not the same. :(

Although I believe some people were against the idea because it meant there was no endgame. I disagree, but that's my opinion and that doesn't change their also completely valid opinion.

Do threads in this forum die? Either way, I'm commenting again just in case to keep it alive. I find it interesting. The original thread that suggested the idea would have been more interesting but I'm pretty sure that was locked and died. Bacon Academy | Vote: Most Pointless Skill |
