They loop player value on items for the duel arena. That makes me wonder how long it will take for Jagex to implement the same in death piles (a.k.a. wilderness). Imagine the effect that would have on the three items saved upon death.

Anyone else notice this?



The gp value of any item wagered in a staked duel is defined by the 'player value'. This 'player value' of an item will change according to any market fluctuations once the Grand Exchange has been introduced.




Sounds to me that Jagex will be controlling the prices in the GE...

I'm not even a staker or usually a ranter but I think 3k gp per 15 mins is a very poor decision on Jagex's part.

lol every time we try and enter a tourney when time is up, it laggs everyone out lol. Jagex your good! Not...




Btw , gf stakers, if your truly good at staking just win some tourny's instead of relying on the luck.




tourneys you have to win 6 in a row, duels you have to win 1.

I have never staked or dueled in my rs life ( well rl for that matter), but I think 3k is ridiculously low .... my son is a low level dueler and even he stakes more than that per duel ..sometimes nothing more than a rune scimitar or 5 or 10 k .....but under this new system even that is too much ...I don't even want to hear his reaction when he gets home from school today.

Everything about this update is excellent, except two things. I don't think it was necessary to dramatically lower the amount of gp players can stake in a 1 vs 1 match. Stakers who were winning blue partyhats are now down to 3k per 15 minutes, that's very dissapointing.



Yes- they can use the clan duel arena for higher stakes- but even then it takes several minutes to get into a match.



And another thing; the ranks are a good way to keep track of "who's the best dueler," but I don't think it was really necessary either. The duel arena is all about grabbing some armor and staking items out of your bank, finding a willing opponent in a few minutes, and winning/losing the stake. However, since there are now rank limits on the four clan arena matches, I don't think this will work very well.



Other than that, it was a creative, and good update. :)

Jagex upset a LOT of people with this update, but I'll have to try it out to see before I judge it...If it really is a max stake of 3k, then that seems pretty stupid.

This is very bad for all the people who trained up a character for staking. Now they have no reward (3k is a joke). Imagine spending months to get that perfect staker then Jagex just takes it away like that...ouch.

Lol, I've never staked over 100k, but seriously... what was Jagex thinking!!! -.-



I could just imagine... former high end stakers sitting in duel arena playing "chase me around the beds" while waiting for the damn 15 minutes to tick through, so they can go and kill each other for what.... 3K??? Thats, like, pocket change. It's even worse than pocket change, it's absolutely rubbish. <.<



World 22 will riot, if they havent already.

Even though I'm not a staker, I can say that on 20.11.2007, staking died. Killed by the same blokes who made it years ago.



About the purpose of this...

If they honestly put "stopping real world trading" as the main reason for this major nerf, then I can without doubt draw parallels to what they're doing, and what G.W. Bush has been doing for the past years. Same principles - eliminate potential evil, not caring about / sacrificing your own people (or players in Jagex's case). Update after update of constant blind fighting against the scum of runescape, leaving quest storylines to be undone, bugs unfixed, skills expanded.... everything which should have been done instead. :x



1vs1 duelling is dead. RIP. :boohoo:

I don't think that this was entirely about RL trading at all. They deliberately wanted to get rid of high-stakes gambling at the arena, but they don't want to admit it.

I would expect a riot, or several on this update. Let's hope it doesn't go that far again.

Agreed meili, i just got my perfect stats: 99 attack, 90 strength, 99 defense with 99 hitpoints, don't exactly easy stats to attain, and they leave me quite weak in pking, the only pvp my account is really good at was staking and they throw us this =D>

I agree, I like the new idea of the tournaments, but 3k is a little silly. If you were going to make the stakes 3k, might as well just get rid of 1v1 staking all together. 3k is kinda pointless, especially in a 15 min period.



I never staked, but I think its kinda silly Jagex did this. I think a better way to change it would have been to make it so the stakes on each side are only 3k difference. Example: If someone taked a dragon long, you would have to put up items within 3k of value to his/her item. To me THAT would make more sense, as a bot/trades might not have the equal amount to stake back.



I dont see this sticking around tho, to many people used staking as a daily activity.

I am also not a staker, but this to me seems like an excellent solution. I would imagine if rl traders are staking they would be either 1 sided stakes or extremely lopsided stakes, so a 3k difference seems reasonable

What a surprise, a world 28 riot in the duel arena! :P



EDIT: It's getting insanely huge; I think jagex has to step in soon before this gets out of control.
