I am not going to lie, I would love to get that 200M one day, but I think that having prizes like this might be bad for the runescape economy.

As such, I propose the 200M coin prize is replaced with 2 bonds, that way someone can either claim the bonds for a month of membership, sell them or give one to a friend.

Let's provide players with an adventure, not a hand out.

It'd be healthier for the game, sure - but the thing is, if Jagex cared about the health of the game, they'd be better off removing TH altogether. In their eyes, adding bonds as a replacement to the gp prize would not only make the prize less lucrative (2 bonds don't make up more than 1/5th of the 200m gp in terms of gp value), which would make people less interested in buying keys, but it'd also increase the bond supply coming to the game, which in turn would also decrease bond purchases with real money.

I have personally not know anyone on my friends list or any clan that I have joined win the 200m from TH, I have only ever seen "Afriend" win it during a YouTube video where he spent 4k(Could be a little off with details) in real life money.

I am not doubting that if I type in on Youtube 200m treasure hunter, I will get a good few pages worth of people winning.

I don't think it has ever had an affect on the economy, people are making that now in a few hours with "flipping/merching" across multiple accounts with the stacks people have.

It would have to be 10 to 15 bonds to equal 200M GP.

I wouldn't want to replace the 200m gp simply because I hope to win it one day. But have an event with non-tradable bonds would be cool. Or fragmented bonds so one could piece the bond together to get a full bond.

I think lucky items are probably more damaging to the game (particularly the economy of their tradeable counterparts) than the 200m prize.

I'm not against adding bonds to TH, but I think that the 200m prize is rare enough that it has minimal impact on the game.
