"The Bounty Hunter Teleport can now only be used once per target."

what the?????

So if i teleport to my target who is extremely far east of edgeville, we both run low on food so one of us teleports away, then we rematch but now he's in 35 wilderness for whatever reason, and because ive already teleported to him when he was way east of edgeville now i cant teleport to him again? Kind of triggered you made changes to this spell. Was never polled, yet you poll if it should require runes or not to use the spell? this update sounds like it'll do more harm than good.
wow.

Strange reason.
The change arose because there's places in the Wilderness where a friendly target can just stand for ages while you teleport back and forth to them to skill faster, etc. That's not something we were comfortable leaving, and we felt that limiting how many times you could teleport to the same person would be smoother than carving out chunks of Wilderness where the spell just refused to work.


Ok so you punish pkers for something skillers were taking advantage of, yet when it comes to polling updates that are more than reasonable like not allowing us to receive targets past 20 wilderness the PVP community gets screwed because we are in the minority, yet if that change had been made without a poll it would solve the issue you were talking about and the teleport to target option would not have had to be changed.

While players do tend to favour one form of content over another, we can't rely on the assumption that if someone's usually into PKing they'll never ever feel like abusing the spell for other purposes. Even if we'd made some of the other changes you wanted without a poll, the low-level Wilderness still includes some of these issues.


Enlighten me, what skilling content was being abused below 20 wilderness?
https://gyazo.com/dbb78db38c90a470e0c8aee783adcc9d this is 20 wilderness and below. Calling BS that anything would be abused here. I could see the teleport being abused to get to black chins but nothing below 20 wilderness. Also i dont appreciate something being changed without a reason for the change in the news post, all it says is The spell has been limited to once per target.

overall very dissatisfied with this change. Pker's werent abusing this spell, skillers were.
