you lost one of your valuable pking worlds 89 to a large group of people who lost their homeworld for the second time and were sick of it being taken away.



first 89 was a pvp world, then they changed it.

they tried the same [cabbage] again with bh worlds, now they changed it again



dont [bleep] with 89. hopefully those in my beloved homeworld who have been displaced are rejoicing at the transformation of the world.



thanks, jagex :thumbup:




Oh noes, you can't just relocate?!?!



Having fewer PvP worlds produces an actual problem that affects many, many more people than the few hundred who lost their "homeworlds." Besides, all it requires to relocate is a few mass PMs on your clan website and a sticky notifying everybody of the change. Ten minutes of effort, tops. :wall:

They may as well have made new worlds for PvP. Beats changing existing worlds, doesn't it?



Thing is, everyone could access PvP worlds, and people from all areas of the game did use them to gain DP. Skilling in PvP was actually more profitable than out, if I'm not wrong... People did 26k after. Hell, only ones that don't benefit from them are questers, and as most skill and/or PK...



It was a boneheaded move to change existing worlds to them, I think. It would have been better to add in some new ones.

Lets all rage at them. I mean why start off with like tons of worlds and then suddenly remove them. It is going to cause a huge controversy in the clan world. Tisk tisk

Yea.



Not only do we pay for p2p. (sorry f2p, i normally support you guys, but this sucks) but f2p actually gets more than us.



Homeworlds don't matter, you can always switch to a new one, you can't just switch to a new pvp world.

Cause there's not that many skillers.




In a Jagex poll, only a little over 10% labeled themselves as pkers. There are a LOT more people who focus on skilling than pvp.




People can't be constantly skilling, they've got to be slaying or something in between. So much skilling drives one insane.




I was unaware that slaying and "other things" were automatically called PvP

contrary to popular belief; some people find skilling very relaxing and can go at it for a long long long time. especially things like wc, fish, cook that require very little attention

I'm gonna be walking down an alley in varrock, and walka is going to walk up to me in a trench coat and say "psst.. hey man, wanna buy some sara brew"

walka92- retired with 99 in attack, strength, defence, health, magic, ranged, prayer and herblore and 137 combat. some day i may return to claim 138 combat, but alas, that time has not yet come

So really, you can't blame jagex, they're a company, they made runescape, they made runescape to make money.


Actually, Runescape was originally made not to make money, but just to provide a hangout spot online. They only decided to make it profitable when it started growing a lot. I'm not saying P2P don't deserve more, I was just pointing that out. And I think the ads also pay per view, not just per click. But I don't know that one for sure.



As for the topic, I cannot say I'm directly affected, but maybe they will add some back if the popularity grows?

Skilling doesn't mean having an account that does purely non-combat. Skilling just means raising your skills, whether you do combat or not. I am a skiller, even though I have 116 combat (F2P). Why? Because I raise my skills.

Maybe the boneheaded move was joing a clan?



Collective vs Invididual. Collective fail! :thumbsup:




The bonehead move was you posting.




Oh take a joke. I mean seriously, there is almost no point to clans anymore. Anything can be borrowed, anything can be assisted, heck you even have your own familiar to do stuff for you, there are minigames to do things with other people.



Clans are just a place for a bunch of people to get together to either a) play the game with other people because they can't enjoy it by themselves, in which case they really should just hang out with other people or B) complain about the game.



:geek:


Your an absolute [wagon]e to be [bleep]ing honest. It's obvious you've never been in a proper pking clan (pure or main) if you made an ignorant post like that. Your first paragraph speaks about skilling clans when this thread is obviously about PKING clans. Theres worlds of difference between the two. Maybe you should take your ill informed posts out of a thread about PvP until you've actually experienced it.



I can't believe most of the posts on this thread, its clear Tip.it has a majority of members who have never experienced proper PvP and are just guessing their ideas about it. And crying about a homeworld being taken away? Please if my 'homeworld' was taken away I'd just move on....far out [kitties] much?

It annoys me that there are only a few worlds, it would be nice if they would just return the wilderness on every world to that situation. This probably wouldn't be possiblew because of credit card fraud concerns.

mate i totally agree with u (dragonlord), i couldnt agree more, the bh or pvp worlds will be filled with clans so it will ruin the aspect of small calns pkin. I think maybe they should make a pair multi or a quadruple mutli whr only 2 ppl or 4 ppl can att a person at a time.

It'd be a bit late now, but I'd agree that something like that should have been implemented now. Thing is, today we have things like quests and minithings that take place there that simply would not be possible with human PKers, considering how much power there is in certain weapons. If BH worlds were full worlds with the wilderness as BH, there would be little problem with homeworlds, at least. They could keep the PvP world system on many other worlds in the wilderness to kill RWT-type stuff, and keep some worlds with revenants so that things like the Summer quests can be done without griefers.

I agree with you, however, if your account is the one with the stats in your signature, you're not making a very clear point.



However, people put a generic word to describe someone.

Just like skillers aren't always level 3, defense pures aren't limited to only defense levels.

I was just going by the 2 "main" generalizations- Skillers and PKers. Of the 2, I am a skiller. I don't pk... at all.

I'll try not to be sarcastic here. quite honestly, no, i can't relocate. mainly because the 89 community split between world 91 and 86, that means (virtually) half the community that i run into will not be world 89ers.

for the people who have legit homeworlds (42, 89, 99, etc) it is devastating to have homeworlds taken away. question: how many tip.iters would be pissed if jagex turned world 99 into pvp? yeah, my point exactly.

also, the reason jagex hasn't messed with 99 (or 42), is also because they realize the importance of a homeworld. they know how closely people hold homeworlds. if they didn't care, they wouldn't have changed 89 back, twice :D



ps- i don't quite understand your ending statement. my clan doesn't have a homeworld. tip.it and other gigantic fan sites are the only ones that could succesfully "relocate" a world.

Noble, you wouldn't know this, but Jagex does mess with unofficial homeworlds.



World 9 used to be the F2P Tip.It homeworld, but it got changed to a member's only server. So we had to switch to 7. So I doubt they care about the importance of so called "homeworlds".



World 10 used to be my homeworld when I was F2P at a point, then the server was relocated from Great Britain to the Netherlands. So I doubt that Jagex has many problems with changing the status of the server.
