[spoiler=Original Post]I don't know if this is worth a new thread, but people are in Mod MMG's clanchat right now, and apparently he's going to hold a poll about the wilderness, and whatever it's decision will be made. In addition all the ranks are saying similar things, and people are suggesting free trade and old style wilderness for long - term customers. He is no longer in the CC, but he was before, asking for suggestions and ideas on how to implement it. You can ask some of the ranks currently in there.

 

Thoughts? Pics? etc. I imagine someone took screens of it.

 

Well apparently, there's going to be no trade limit and wild, and they'll be only for very long term accounts with no bad track records, which would make an entirely huge amount of sense.

 

Hopefully 2011 brings great things.

[spoiler=Jagex News Post]Hi everyone,As we near the end of another big year for Jagex, I feel very proud and truly amazed at what we've achieved together since RuneScape was conceived a decade ago. Together we've been part of the growth of one of the biggest free games in the world, not to mention the best, most vibrant online community in history. The Jagex family has grown to well over 400, we've picked up a number of Guinness World Records along the way (and counting), and for the second year running we've won the Golden Joystick Awards as best UK developer. This is all thanks to you, the players.

 

As you know, we try to keep our updates close to our chest, so that you will be pleasantly surprised; however, I can promise you that 2011 will be one of our most exciting update years ever.

 

When considering big game-changing decisions, it's always with our players' ultimate game experience firmly in mind; your feedback helps shape our decisions and, ultimately, the fun entertainment we produce. Creating content that you enjoy and appreciate is what drives our passionate teams. We regularly listen to you on the fan sites, our forums, in game and, for the first time ever, face to face at our live player celebration: RuneFest 2010. Your voice counts hugely, because we know you are as passionate about playing RuneScape as we are about making it.

 

It's never lost on me what an incredible privilege it is to be able to serve such a wonderful community as well as the incredible team at Jagex. I've had an astonishing time over the past two years that I've been CEO of Jagex and, during that time, have had to make some rather difficult decisions. Today, however, I'd like to ask every one of our players, past and present, for your help in making one of the biggest decisions regarding the future of RuneScape...

 

I regularly hear from both the community and the Jagex team that we should reintroduce free trade and the excitement of the old Wilderness, warts and all. As you know, we removed free trade and the Wilderness in 2007 to combat botting, gold farming and item scamming. Since then, we have produced new content that provides comparable gameplay and mechanics to allow increased trade limits with long-term friends; however, we are still regularly being told that something is missing from the 'good old days' of RuneScape.

 

We've been shutting down bot-makers all around the world and prosecuting people for stealing accounts, and we've evolved our systems to quickly detect cheating; however, we will have to accept that we will never completely eradicate cheating so long as there is an incentive and method to do so. Bringing back free trade and the original Wilderness will certainly make this a bigger issue than it is today, though I can pledge that we will never stop trying to combat it.

 

So, the big question is, are the passionate voices we hear on this topic truly representative of the majority of the player community or just a rather vocal minority? Do you want to see a return of free trade and the original Wilderness? If the vast majority of our players vote in favour of it, then we will do exactly that.

 

Please tell us what you think by visiting this page and registering your vote. As ever, we'll read your feedback and listen to your thoughts and opinions, so please do feel free to discuss and debate this on the forums.

 

In the meantime, have a wonderful holiday season and thank you for a fantastic 2010. I look forward to celebrating ten years of RuneScape with you in January.

 

Have fun!

 

Take care,

Mark Gerhard

+100. It'd be quite different though, with new prayers and such. And yet, at the same time, it would be a hell of a good time

99 Theving

Slayer Drops: 14 whips, 22 D boots, 27 Granite Mauls, 42 Effigies, 5 Dark Bows.

What would be cool is if Drakan and his minions kill all the sig heroes in the quest except Raptor who is wrecking. You and him team up and cave in some vampyre heads. He becomes a total bro in future quests and in a GM quest he receives a fatal injury and his last dying words to you are "Brofist, mang"

I just don't see the benefits of brining free trading or old wildreness. They were removed from the game for a reason, not just to piss people off. Runescape may not be in the best of shape at the moment, but think what it would look like it if free trading still existed. Just my thoughts.

Well apparently, there's going to be specific worlds for the trade and wild, and they'll be only for very long term accounts with no bad track records, which would make an entirely huge amount of sense.

A friend on tipit was also dead certain he heard it from a Jmod that they were releasing the dragon kite with the Do No Evil quest.

 

You just don't believe everything you hear.

OMG, MMG said it himself! That means everything that came out of his mouth must be true!!! Oh, I could I be so stupid... :rolleyes:

 

To be frank, it won't happen.

This isn't for all of the naysayers to come in here and voice their ungrounded opinions what happened, because it did just happen. I made this to ask others if they think it's a good idea, or to see pictures from other people regarding it. What TheAncient posted should be enough for you to understand something was just said.

 

 

So can Negative Nancy's, for lack of a nicer thing to say, **** off please lol.

 

 

There's a difference between "it was said" and "it will happen".

 

However, it WAS said.

I'm hoping this isn't true, which it most likely isn't

The game has moved on a lot in the last three years, and I don't see how bringing that back in any way could be anything but a bad thing

 

Of course maybe people have moved on too and will vote against it in any polls

Okay. My thoughts then? MMG's account was compromised and/or he's just fishing for answers. RWTing updates aren't being repealed anytime soon. Considering there's no screens of him committing the game to such a change, that this was anything more than (irresponsible) idle chatter on his part, you can safely go about your daily lives of RuneScape.

 

Really, what else is there to say? There's already threads that discuss the possibility of reverting the RWT'ing updates, so the only thing to gnaw over here is if/(or the unlikely) when it will happen.

 

I don't know what's even worth discussing here, especially with no proof to anything but third party hearsay. Even has a misleading topic title. Lordy...the rules, they're groaning under the bending.

It's entirely possible that one person started a rumor and then it just snowballed out of proportion. That being said, I quit playing runescape when they removed free trade because I enjoyed merchanting. If I had nothing but time to kill, such a change might bring me back to playing again.

I would totally start pking if they did this. If they did this and it required a good track record and an old account, then I'm set! Over 6 years since I made it, and only a one day mute in 2007 that was wiped over two years ago. So in short, if they do this I will love Jagex forever.

Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change. And that infinitesimal change ripples outward-ever smaller but everlasting. I will get forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter-maybe less than a lot, but always more than none.

I guess it would work like that, but I just foresee to many problems from this.

This topic is now about the countdown for the new CEO pending Mark Gerhard's 'resignation'.

 

Everything proposed sounds like off the cuff remarks and wishful thinking after a few beers that they will NEVER escape the backlash from if this is all true, and something that will stoke the "free trading" fires again for a month or more. Lord. -_-'
