So, we all know that Tuska lost to Vorago and the Godless. She crash-landed on the planet, and now provides a portal to Mazcab.

But...what if Tuska won? What would happen then? I could not find any threads or official Jagex Mod information on this, so I ask here.

Would we have a new wasteland? Would there be changes to the game world itself? Would Vorago have done something despite our failure? I really wish to know!

My personal believe is some minor mark on the world would have been made and she wouldn't have crash landed in such a find place to land. Zaros would have revealed himself to stop her is my belief.

A jmod said somewhere that there would have been major changes to the desert area of unknown proportions. That was all..

More lore. Less Mazcab. A better Runescape. Runescape doesn't need a hero...it needs a villain. An all encompassing force of evil that will remain ever-threatening and use chaos to make the peoples of Gielinor tolerate each other, grow strong together, and fight side by side against this evil. I am that villain.

But i think only Vorago won Tuska, and the Godless had little differ than any other bashing faction. If not for weakening Tuska, Vorago would of sapped more divine energy off Gielinor, and so forth the fortress. Is dull how if one declares their support to faction they're deemed 100% devoted, without any freedom of their own mind!

I don't think this was going to end up being a scenario.

The basic rundowns were:
- Tuska "won"
- Gilienor "won" with Faction 1, 2, 3, or 4 getting credit

But given how important Sliske's game is, I really don't think they would have let Tuska land alive.

Keep in mind, devs reduced the difficulty once players complained (though the devs seemed to have set the overall activity bar higher than for the number of actual players playing)

So if Tuska did land?
She would probably have been placed in a remote location (off the desert coast of off the edge of karamja).
There would have been reports of earthquakes, land being ripped up.

That or we would have gotten a report that Tuska landed on the true eastern continent (the large spot far from even the Wushanko Isles) was suddenly eaten up, then Tuska moved on.

If I remember correctly, a Jmod posted that if Tuska had won)

She would have landed safely, causing notable damage.
She would have had a ****ciounesd rather than just being a mindless beast.
Slightly more civilized (not aggressive) airut would have populated her back whom we could maybe chat with.
The portal to Mazcab on her back would have still opened.

I'm not even sure if Tuska winning was ever a possibility to begin with, since the event seemed to be scaled to make sure that Gielinor won. When it looked like we were losing, they simply made it easier to compensate.

I'd be much more interested in hearing about what would have happened if Zamorak had defeated Saradomin at the Battle of Lumbridge or if Armadyl had died in Bird and the Beast. Although to be honest, Armadyl losing Bird and the Beast was never really a possibility either. This is one of the main problems with world events, in my opinion. It doesn't really feel like anything is at stake because it's clear who is going to win from day one and it's hard for an individual player to feel like their contributions are really doing anything.

If Zamorak defeated Saradomin, then Zammy would have gained enough power for Tier 3 and Saradomin would've been hit by a power blast to become Tier 5 (So pretty much reversed the current outcome). Saradomin would probs have a quest instead of DAT, where Saradomin would want to steal the SOJ to help provide 'order'

If Bandos beat Armadyl, then Armadyl would've been killed. Same outcome pretty much, Armadyl would probs have a quest in replace of a mighty fall
