The so-called "day that Runescape died" has always bugged me. The new PVP system just makes it worse.

And the GE has recently repealed my long-held tradition of "get it yourself."

I see the trade limit as jagex essentially forcing people to use the GE, though I realised it helped resolve scamming.

i think the GE hurt me the most cuz i used to merch whips, but once it came out everyone just went to the GE set it for min and ran off to do whatever until we merchers had to give in.

As said before, limits in shops and the way GE has made getting items too (?) easy. Now every upcoming little brat who wants to train 'x-stat' will just spam buy all the materials, raising the prices. :'(

Anytime Jagex has screwed me over by releasing an useful update to what i'm doing a week after I finish what i'm doing.
Examples:

Berserker Ring able to be enchated day after I sell mine.
Servant updates after I get 70 Construction.
Dragon Pickaxe released after I get 70 Mining. (Not too bad, as I never got one anyway)

There was one other time, but I can't remember it.

Whatever update that was made to make smithing a generally non-profit skill, though tbf I don't mind making bars for profit or cballs...... Only methinks armour should be more than the bars, but oh wells, I still <3 smithing no matter the cost.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

Can't name one.

Living rock cavens made mining too easy.
Herblore update made herblore too expensive, but overloads are nice.
Trade limit and old style pking removal made the game different, but it had to be done.

The Prayer and herblore updates are the ones that got me.. Raising herb and Dragon bone prices imensley. Now If i want to get 70 prayer I will have to pay out 8.6m when before it could've been around the 3m mark.. And herblore I spent 1.4m alone on 51-55 herblore which is annoying for me. The grand exchange and trade limits also took the communtiy feel out of the game, Many people used to have perm material sellers on their trade lists; Now you can go day by day playign runescape without havign to say 1 word to any other player.

I got 70 pray through ectofunctus, 43 - 70 (it killed me, I swear...); two weeks later they release 'x', followed later by the prayer xp increase. NOT FUNNY :z. Ditto on the Berserker Ring and, to a degree, on the PvP update. I still understand the reason it was done...but it was crudely impemented, with limited forethought.

The trade limit.

Runescape doesn't seem the same not standing in a big park, saying the same thing over and over.

Ah, good old days

(Although it has no effect on me) Woodcutting update. Completely unnecessary, also made WC pretty much an afk skill.

I don't care about PvP updates, seeing as I don't do PvP. I also don't care about trade limits as I don't trade and only use the GE now (which imo made up for the limits).

LOL.

Trade limit.

I did quit for about a year in 2008 however I decided to give RS another chance since and have now got over all the price limitations.

This update didn't really hurt me, and I'm sorry, but I'm too newb to know a pre-ge or pre-wildy-pking runescape, but the update that upset me the most was the one that changed the current pvp systems implemented around July last year.

I used to really enjoy the thrill of skilling with only 3 items protected as I stayed clear of the tag of pker with no skull over my head. I died lots doing it, losing the items I'd gathered. But somehow, dying to (my definition of a) pjer wasn't so bad.... It at least taught me not to fight back as my account just isn't built for it.

Since the chage that puts a skull over my head just for logging into the world, where I will lose not only my power (i used to be f2p/ on f2p worlds with a friend) but something else I don't have bank-space for.... idk.... I don't want to be just-the-same-as the thrill-seekers who attack other players.

Meh, no rant here... I don't like the changes, so I have not logged into a pvp world (except a pre-arranged bout or 2) since they were brought in.

What I really don't like about them is they remove a de-crowding skill-training option for me.
