We heard loud and clear that the Old School community would not accept the likes of buyable resources, wealth, or XP.

yet you allow bonds in the game

Jagex I had no doubt you were going to be as ethical as possible with these microtransactions. I know you were going to be transparent as to where they came from, when the 'partnership' ended, and when everybody could get them

but that last part is the problem. There shouldn't be very many cool looking cosmetics that any level 3 fresh from your new partnership can collect just by typing in a few codes.

If you added a home teleport animation as a reward for maxing, nobody would be against that. If you added the elf house reskin as a reward for the elf diaries, nobody would be against that.

but, as you saw, the overwhelming majority of players are easily against the addition of effortless cosmetics into a game that is largely dominated by your accomplishments being shown off by rewards that have heavy cosmetic value. Don't ruin that like they did in RS3

Yes bonds are a form of MTX i agree, but i will say they are a minor MTX that isnt as game breaking as people think.

With out bonds people would just go with 3rd party sites and get their gp that way, At least bonds means Jagex is getting that money and i dont know about you i rather have that money to go Jagex than some randoms.

Also would be willing to bet quite a few people are only playing due to bonds, myself included, wouldnt be a smart move to just remove them because of a few nostalgia crybabies who think osrs is osrs lmao.

Bonds aren't wealth


BIS gear is "wealth"?

Coins in the game are "wealth"? They must be because they buy the BIS gear.

Bonds buy the coins.

Coins ARE wealth.

Bonds ARE wealth if someone chooses to use them that way.

What is "wealth" in the game that can't be bought with coins (which CAN BE bought with bonds)?

Bonds do not create wealth with RL money. It merely trades it.


Neither do gold sites. They only trade gp lmao. I thought this argument was a big ass troll at first, but it seems some people are actually this silly.

How come every old-school RS player is a whiner about features THEY VOTED IN YEARS AGO.

"Bonds are MTX!!" Fine, let's remove bonds from the game tomorrow. Then you'll complain there is no way to pay through your play.

"Ban runelite and third party clients!" Again, you had the chance to vote against it but instead you kept using 3rd party client OSbuddy and only decided to complain when runelite came out.

"Let's remove the grand exchange, or at least tax it!!" again, you voted those in years ago b and only now you are realizing the negative effects it brought.
OSRS the most difficult game of 2019 no easyscape allowed!!

Who cares anymore? Everyone knows that it was cosmetic MTX. Everyone knows that the veterans of osrs voted in bonds which are also MTX. Does that mean that we should add as much MTX as possible just because of the veterans of OSRS voting in MTX early on? No.
