-Rampant, absolutely unstoppable "quality of life" changes, edging the game further and further to ezscape like RS3
-More and more and more unpolled changes despite once promising never to change without a poll
-Free trade continuously limited

Yep, free trade is now gone. I guess we should have seen this coming when they added all the limitations and taxes at the duel arena, but I didn't think they'd be this brazen about it. I quit RS3 for deleting my ability to trade freely, and I never thought it would happen again. I hoped they learned their lesson, but as fun as OSRS is to show off to WoW classic haters, it has proven all mistakes will eventually repeat themselves. Maybe Blizzard will be smart about Wow classic and never change a thing about it except bugs, something I'm wishing was happening with OSRS.

You know, I made fun of people wishing for a server of release-day OSRS. Now I'm not against the idea

Am I missing something? How is free trade continuously limited? And what specific QoL changes do you think constitute ezscape?

As for unpolled changes, ZMI is a textbook integrity change made to comply with the way the content was originally polled, so no further poll required. Hiding poll results without a poll was certainly questionable, but beyond those two what have you got a problem with?

I just don't see the picture you're painting of OSRS becoming RS3 at all tbh.
Anyone that wants changes to make ironman easier should be renamed wannabe-man and have their ironman icon replaced with a dunce hat.

Quality of Life changes aren't bad. New content (that gets passed in polls) that significantly raises XP rates, such as tithe farming or NMZ are a lot more harmful than a few saved clicks here and there.

Agreed with regards to some shitty obscure wilderness mechanics being changed, like how items are dropped, etc. They polled it once then rammed it down our throats later on anyway.

What does this even mean? This only applies to like day 1 accounts.

Besides, trade limits were put up in 2007. They're arguably more OSRS than RS3.

Consider using constructive criticism instead of using RS3 as a buzzword for things you don't like. You'll get a lot farther that way and people might take your post seriously.
Don't forget ľ RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!

I think he's talking about ZMI trade restriction lol. Please remember that the forum is not for debating. It is for echoing views only. If you see someone opposing someone else's views, please report this so it can be dealt with.
