  1. got super paranoid about the website as soon as i saw it. WTF is this? just seemed so standard for many phishing sites ugh jagex.... cmon... thinki of the stupid children! wont somebody please think of the stupid chiuldren!
  2. And here's the other point i neglected to mention when I wrote that article. I felt very strongly at the time that the staking scene was full of young/underage people getting a taste (and developing an addiction) to gambling and while it was in a somewhat harmless arena (ummm, omg i lost some mmorpg gold), developed habits and addictions that I felt were pretty dangerous to their RL lives long term. When the duel update took place, I was frustrated that I couldn't stake anymore, but I realized that it was an aspect of the game that was not appropriate for the vast majority of the paying members. Excited for the update, but unless there is an edge to be had you wont see me at world6 draynor or world66(or whatever it was) duelling arena.
  3. this kinda funny, i saw the poll and wanted to do some research and came upom an article i wrote myself. Since then I've gone on to have a semi-professional career in poker, and I can attribute some of the success i've had to the lessons i learned through high stakes duelling on runescape. I was just looking at that article and felt proud about being able to recognize an unprofitable situation (rs2 staking as we knew it) and being able to move on to something else. Unfortunately, when it comes to 1v1 runescape duels there is just not enough depth to the combat system for the better players to enjoy enough of an advantage to reap the rewards of their superior skills. The return of staking? I voted yes... and an emphatic yes, but mostly because i am a degenerate and cant wait to get my gamble on.
  4. Having a blast so far but can`t help but feel short changed. bleh, can`t sort my thoughts well enough to get my points across... but this could have been so much better and I don`t see a fix like summoning 2.0. It`s just so weird how they decided to integrate this into the game
  5. i think you're trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.
  6. a whole new thread might be best. need some time to think about that one.
  7. not quite true, mith dragons are targeting me but don't seem to be able to attack. ranged/magic attacks at least. don't really want to test melee.
  8. insane amount of bugs. and the variety of them is really something else.
  9. wow, just got dummied at mith dragons trying to cast claws of guthix. it ain't working.
  10. is agility now just the second most useless skill? epic agility update.
  11. LOL @ the groupie healed about 15hp while uploading pic/posting... so pretty significant. magic spells look so, so much better.
  12. i'm not bleeping or moaning, i am admittedly uninformed on this topic (haven't been interested in this game for a while, hard to catch up on current events and only have experience merchanting before the GE was introduced) and more than anything am looking for a concrete argument that what merchant clans is against the rules and 'bad for the game'. Trying to play devils advocate to get past the 100 posts of 'merch clans r bad and illegal, jagex better fix the grand exchange'. To be honest, I like the argument you made and the issue is getting fuzzier. I'm not sure if you were addressing me, but I do not believe that the GE is flawed either. Let's hope they go down the banstick road rather than revamping the GE in some way, because I (like many others, I am sure) like it the way it is.
  13. check out my sick guide: http://www.tip.it/runescape/?page=mole_hunting.htm a bit outdated now, but it's all still pretty accurate. definitely worth hunting if you're decent at it.
  14. ok, so I guess what this boils down to is the bug concept. Some believe that the g.e. price's ability to fluctuate is a bug and is being exploited and others do not. I obviously do not and believe that merch clans have done nothing more than buy and sell in larger quantities and cause larger than average fluctuations in prices. Bottom line: Jagex doesn't like it and are going to put an end to it. It won't be easy for them and I don't think there is a perfect solution because once again, all these clans are doing is buying and selling through the grand exchange. Just beware of what you wish for. You've gotta give a little to get a little and who knows how things will look when they're done "fixing" the grand exchange.
  15. Pretty sick. Good job to everyone who had a part in this.
  16. just giving my opinion bud, no need to bust out the rolly eyes and dictionary.com definitions. still waiting for the rule that says people can't buy and sell items through the grand exchange.
  17. i support the sardonic response, based on hilarity.
  18. Please tell me the harm they cause and the rule they have broken. Specifically, what harm and what rule. I assume you're referring to JMods? I was referring to the backlash das received for giving his opinion which happened to be contrary to that of the TIF mob.
  19. Gotta get my .02 in i don't get the hate for merchanting guilds. they give you an opportunity to sell your stuff at ridiculously high prices if you can get in when the time is right. ie: i had about 50 crystal keys hanging around in my bank and sold them at triple their value last week. And I've gotten 30k free crafting exp a day from people who have too many dragonstones. the only people who lose are the bandwagon jumpers who buy too late and sell way too late. haven't read the entire 15page thread and I'm sure this has been mentioned many times; but these guys are doing nothing wrong. The words 'abuse' 'manipulate' etc. are being thrown around and I don't think they're fair. Merch guilds are playing WELL within the rules and I take no moral issue with what they do. It's alot more legit than stuff that used to go on with merchanting before the G.E. There has always been what I view to be an irrational hate on for merchants. Whether it's born from jealousy, bad experiences or whatever, I don't know... but it's silly. The whole thing is silly.
  20. AFAIK mods are people and are allowed to form their independent opinions on a subject.
  21. see, this is where i get confused. I put up 75k maples the first day as well and they're still sitting there at 55gp each now. in fact, I put them in as I was reading about you cleaning out your bank with success. if someone can explain that one to me i'll eat my hat. except I probably won't. i'll just say thanks or something.
  22. the only thing that's changed is my desire to sell finished product at a fraction of what i bought the ingredients at. :wall:
