So, I was looking at the RSOF a bit when I stumbled upon a thread titled something like "NO F2P HS = LAZY JAGEX" at about exactly the same time that I was thinking exactly what the thread-maker was saying in the thread, which I will now restate.



The reason that Jagex is making the highscores members only is, according to the newspost, to keep rankings "fresh" by weeding out inactive accounts. But, there seems to be a very simple way they could do this while still including accounts without membership. They obviously keep track of when you last logged into the game ("You last logged in X days ago from..." message from the lobby). It seems to me like they should be able to easily code the highscores to not include accounts that haven't logged in for a certain amount of time rather than just make it membersonly.

This leads me to the conclusion that either:

(a) Jagex are too lazy to do this alternative

OR

(b) This is just another somewhat-dishonest ploy to try to get more subscribers

Hi-score Changes - FAQ

QFC: 16-17-732-63382107

"Both F2P and members are adverse to this update. How did you come to the conclusion that we may like it?!

Removing bots from the hi-scores is very popular and the way that we are doing it is the most successful approach that there is. "


So everyone who is not paying will sort of be treated like a bot...

"Are you aware that this is likely to break the F2P community? It will no longer be competitive and fun.

We believe in one overall RuneScape community and it is its integrity that we are concerned about. We we are convinced that it is the right decision for the overall community to limit hi-score rankings for the people who actually compete and not ones who are dormant or botted. "


I'm sure they know about this list and all, they just DON'T CARE about F2P anymore (not even sure if they ever did).

Here's to hoping that this gets repealed at some point, like the removal of the wilderness.

Like f2pers don't compete... I thought Jagex was smarter...

They should have a poll about this.

Edit: quote from that topic:

My friend is F2P, how am I supposed to compare our scores now?

If you really want to compete, you should have a level playing field; meaning that your friend should have as many skills to train and as many possibilities to get XP as you, therefore it is only a fair competition if he subscribes to RuneScape and gets the same opportunities that you enjoy.

So f2pers don't have friends to compete with? <_<

That whole "FAQ" was just running around the questions, nothing was really answered. Not that it surprised me.

I really don't know what to think, since they don't seem to care that probably over 95% of the whole player base, P2P or F2P, seems to hate the idea of this update.

I just hope they undo this in the future, like with the Wilderness.

My words, but a whisper - your deafness, a shout.

If the future's looking dark, we're the ones who have to shine. If there's no one in control, we're the ones who draw the line

The more I read things like this, the more I think that somebody looked at the hiscores and said: "Hey! Look at how many of the highest ranked players aren't members. We need to do something quickly to change that."

To me it basically says ALL f2p are bot scum and due to our inability to ban bots we are ganna ban the f2p HS instead. (Though I agree to your view of it too.)

"..To who actually compete.."

Yep.. All f2p are bots and should be removed from the HS tbh. Bots cant compete as they arnt human so that means they must be bots. Bots cant compete as they arnt human so that means they must be bots.

Those people I spoke to who spent years gaining their perma rank were actually just very crafty bots. None of them are dormant so obviously that leaves only one logical conclusion. They were bots the whole time =0 Wow jagex please save me. They continue to speak to me even this current day and they got 200m..?!! What is this..? Help! I need protecting from these f2p botting scum.

I cant trust anyone elses rank tbh.. Please remove whole HS =S You must remove bots at any cost. All bots. Its reasonable to remove HS to remove the remaining 0.03% of member bots that are flooding the HS ranks tbh.

Quick! Send out mod Emilee to do it! She seems to know whats what concerning this threat.

(Aww im jk emilee no disrepect towards you - Just messenger I know. I need to joke about this because its too absurd to absorb otherwise. Its my coping mechanism to deal with the huge disrespect being thrown towards players and especially f2p players. I have never been so disappointed in whole time I have played how cruel they are being towards their players. =s Even non-players I have spoken to are shocked by this action. They dont even understand what its about but they understand the gist of it to know its wrong. They know enough about my character and the effort it involved to know f2p is even harder. Or how removing people from hs unless 'pay money' is unattractive aswell as destructive to the history of the game. I dont think they find my descriptions of the game surrounding this issue very appealing tbf. +1 For word and mouth advertisement.)

What happen to that picture? I saw it this morning before head to work and wanted to save it when I come back. Even though pictures were poorly drawn, but it believer such a strong message (almost cried for some reason). I wish everyone in Runescape can see it.

I am not sure if this is the reason Andrew isn't with Jagex anymore, seems how the game is going in the opposite direction the founders were intended.

The Archives are up for the 11/11/11 update (92 cells wide x 281 cells down of data!). Please preserve these spreadsheets and remember the Top 250 F2P List. Although Rune$cape will likely soon come to pass, our community shall not be forgotten for years to come.

Microsoft Excel 97-2003 format (.xls)
Microsoft Excel 2007 (.xlsx)

If you can't read it I will take additional file format requests.
Also, if there are any errors on the spreadsheet or if you would like to suggest something to include, I will gladly take a look at it.

Don't know whether it would be appropriate to add to those lists, but I would love to see a "Hall Of Fame" while we can still make one... To commemorate some of the incredible achievements of players who do not show on the top 250. Like those of Expert1212, Varro182, Fluhminator, etc. Maybe we could start a "Proud To Have Been a Pure F2Per" list (to which anyone could add themself)...

On another note: Thank you, Isthatok, for having been caretaker of the list for so long!

HERE! HERE! INDEED!!!!

ISTHATOK, Thank you so much for taking care of this list, not only with diligence, but with integrity and honor as well.

For me, it was never a matter of the money for memberships.

It was a matter of showing impressionable young minds that with persistence, we have the ability to move mountains, one grain of sand at a time.

From the time I first heard of this list, back then it was the top 200, my only goal was to make a spot for the name Gafelgafi.

It has been an honor to know those of you I have met, and a great loss for those I have not met. Regardless, you have all been an inspiration to me and I am humbled to be recognized within these ranks.

Thank you all for your dedication,

Gafelgafi

Something just dawned on me....

If you use a f2p account while pking, no one could look up your stats. I see that as being a huge advantage given to f2pers.

Will that be enough of a reason for the member pkers to scream foul?

Peace out folks.

Not as long as there are people like you to inspire us and remind us of what is possible. I also would like to extend my thanks for maintaining this list for so long, especially though the nightmare of bots over the last year. :thumbsup:

This is such a noble community, and the prospect of its death has pained me more than anything I've ever encountered in my 7 years of playing Runescape. Suddenly, the game has become infinitely lonelier. I don't think a bigger blow could have been dealt to our community without killing off everyone in it for good.

For those of you who have chosen to keep playing in spite of the hiscores removal: would you be interested in starting some kind of clan/friends chat? Or is there already one that is vibrant enough (and will continue to be after the update) that we can join?

Isthatok: you were a most diligent and self-disciplined caretaker who truly cared about this community, and this last effort of yours was a nice way to draw the close of an era that should have never had to end. We have a lot to thank you for, as well as your predecessors, Lordjake, A_U_R_A, Akm762, Danesi, and Veractus, the original creator of the list. You were all dedicated to making this community stand out for its resolve and dedication to what it loved, and your patient—and probably thankless—service exemplified those qualities. You all always kept me striving for something: ever since I first learned about the list in 2006, I wanted to get on it, and that was the goal that drove me to play for years. But eventually, I became so immersed in the community that I forgot about that goal and just began playing for the sake of playing. But I couldn't have reached that state without the initial push that the list gave me. And now I'm at the point where I'm okay with the fact that I can't make it on the list anymore, and that I can just be proud of those who did while it was around. Being a part of this community brought me more satisfaction than a place on that list ever could have, especially if I had never gotten a chance to interact with those who were on it.

I bid farewell to those who are leaving. You were all my friends, whether I ever met you or not.

There is still time to make an "all pure F2P" list, with all pure F2P's with more than 1000 total? :)

Much thanks for your kind words.

Blabb/Fire_Hawk154, I think that is a great idea and to the archives I will add a list of all purely F2P players who have been or wish to be a part of our community and have not had the chance to make the List at the time of closing. Please proceed to hammer me with names. I need as many names as possible before Tuesday (yes, I will try to include their total level and highest stat as well). Anyone who is purely F2P is eligible to be included, but I will need at least 100 names in order for this to have meaning.

In addition to this I will try to somehow make the Archive more user-friendly in whatever way possible. I understand that an Excel spreadsheet may not be the most appropriate of data-sharing methods. I am considering transferring the information onto a Word document, as well as an online version on Google Docs.

As for myself although I have stopped skilling in-game (basically since September) I will continue to log in to chat. For those of you who still don't know, we welcome any purely F2P players in our friends chat, "Pure f2ps", so long as you are respectful to all of us. I think it may be appropriate and necessary for our community to migrate into this friends chat.

Isthatok

P.S. @LordAdib, do you happen to know exactly when the List was created?
