Lately Jagex seems to be heading in a wrong direction with OSRS, and it seems we are getting closer to RS3 again and Jagex is starting to not listen to their community. Iím posting this thread in hopes that Jagex will read this and caution themselves for future content and to listen to the community.

I have been an OSRS player since 2003 and have always loved runescape. It is my favorite game to play on my free time and it has always been enjoyable. When EOC came out which later evolved into RS3, it completely ruined the game for me and I quit entirely. When I heard later on that OSRS was being remade again I was extremely excited and starting playing again (even though I lost my maxed account into RS3). Jagex took it even a step further and added a poll system where we then community and players of the game can vote on content we like to see come out. And so far it has been an amazing experience and I thank Jagex for that.

However, recently I have noticed Jagex is starting to not listen to the community as much and is releasing content/updates without polls and doing things they seem fit. This is greatly upsetting the community and myself as I love the OSRS I know and hope to keep it that way. A few examples of this is the update that ended ZMI runners to help people level their RC. There was a huge community for that and it was not going against game rules but Jagex just got rid of it because they didnít like it, whereas almost every RS player loved that aspect. Also the fishing world 322 that has been alive since the old days just got changed and a huge community is very Upset about it. And lastly this new Warding skill proposed does not seem fit for OSRS, it feels like we are heading to another close version of RS3 when this game is supposed to be the OSRS We all know and love.

Jagex please listen to your community, donít end up like blizzard, that was an utter failure because they didnít listen to their community. Listen to the community please

For me there are 3 main reasons they ruined RuneScape
1. EOC
2. MTX (overrides etc)
3. Current graphics
If they don't add these OSRS might be ok.



However there are 2 other things that slowly ruin game.
1. OP gear
2. Too much new content and big changes in game.

I agree with super OP gear ruins the feel for 07rs, but as long as the new content coming out like more quests and places to explore still feels like 07rs then thatís good. New content keeps 07rs entertaining for people who have done it all. Just donít want new content like EOC, combat changes like warding, etc...

Ever thought that maybe it was for game integrity? We're talking about the community who voted to allow in botting just so they could get easy levels. If it were up to me, I'd delete that polling system altogether. That system was gonna be the downfall of this game and turn it into RS3 and I'm sure Jagex has realized that. That's why integrity updates are a thing now. If you don't like it, you're free to quit but the rest of us are enjoying the game. Runecrafting was meant to be a prestigious skill and tbh they should just reset everyone's runecrafting level to 1 and make them earn it the right way. I'm also 99 runecrafting on my main before you go on about this alt's pathetic stats.

Who gives a shit for fishing? Idk what you're even talking about, but skilling isn't meant to be end-game content lol. That's what PvM is for.

Warding is an excellent idea that fits perfectly into this game more so than any other skill suggestion I've ever seen. It provides a way to bring magic armor into the game. If that doesn't make sense, then remove the crafting and smithing skills since they do the same exact thing. If Slayer was polled 15 years ago, no one would support that. They'd be in flames thinking a skill where you're told what to kill and you kill it is just fucking dumb and pointless while bitching about a 15% on task buff being broken. And how do I know this? Because Artisan failed a poll. The point is that warding should just qualify as an integrity fix at this point imo.
I haven't clicked on any phishing links and as a result, I haven't gotten hacked. Git gud nubnubs.

If they had given a shit about ZMI running, and being in alignment with what was polled, they should have fixed it since day 1 and not years later.
