I voted yes because then I can accept free stuff from my friends and also I hope that the prices of raw materials will fall due to rising number of botters.

 

You're a fool the botters never left and RWTing is worse now then 07

This has to be fake. I simply cant imagine this to be really true. :blink: :blink: :blink:

 

 

In all honesty though yes x100000000000000000000000 I would be the hardcore player I once was if this happened, for the love of Guthix Jagex do this

 

How can you possibly think this is fake? That would be the most moronic move Jagex has ever made, by far. Care to butt against any of the points in my previous post?

 

The fact you don't have to log in to vote makes me think the voting process is simply hype and they've made up their mind already.

 

This.

 

It's SO obvious. The fact that doing this kind of poll, and ending up not bringing the wilderness/free trade back would only make the people complaining rage 10x harder, would give the people who gave up protesting fresh motivation to start raging again, and would basically be publicity suicide. The fact that Jagex doesn't seem care that it can easily be abused, since you don't have to log in. The fact that you can only vote yes, which means it's guaranteed to look like a community decision. The teasing tone of, "100,000 votes certainly won't be enough. Perhaps not even 1,000,000. It will take you and every one of your friends, ex-friends and probably even enemies to register sufficient votes to bring it back." THEY HAVE ALREADY MADE UP THEIR MIND. And I, for one, am pleased.

not a bad idea adding a poll to this thread. *votes*

 

Anyone wanna place bets on when we hit 1m? :P

 

Agreed. I'd make a bet, but I don't have any money now. :(

 

EDIT: You know what? I'm voting yes. Simply because I'm a trusting person, and I cannot visualise that Jagex would ever make a business decision that would cripple its own company. They must have done something.

Its not that I honestly think its fake its just that its something many of us want so bad I just cant see it really happening. But who knows runescape is in decline Jagex can be desperate, I certainly hope that is the case

I think that we should refer to this period of time as "RS prohibition", making reference to the US's failed prohibition of alcohol.

 

 

I hope that they get rid of gravetones along with this update. It would be great to be able to camp new updates again and watch people die and have the public swarm their dropped items.

 

If all accounts have the ability to trade freely I also will be highly interested in being able to get lots of money on to low level accounts again (via charitable donations from friends of course)

Said this in HYT and i'll say it again...

 

The only people who want this are either annoying pk'ers, rwt'ers or beggars.

 

"z0mgz bring back old [email protected]@@i wanna own some noobs!"

 

"I like to buy my money because I can't be arsed to get it myself"

 

"I just want free stuff from my friends so I do little to no work for myself"

 

My theory:

 

The "vote" is all reverse pyschology, people have been ranting about wanting old wildy back and now that they've brought out this poll they're waiting for the strong opposing of bringing them back to prove to the annoying ranters for the last few years exactly why they took it out.

Possibly, although it's not wholly necessary. Bringing back free trade doesn't imply that everything to do with it must go too.

 

I also recall that I need to eat a hat, a sock, and a shoe as well. Today has not been a profitable day.

Weve been shutting down bot-makers all around the world and prosecuting people for stealing accounts, and weve 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.

 

This part of their newspost in particular stands out to me.

 

Jagex is admitting that they will never fully fix botting/RWTing, and that bringing back the old Wildy and free trade will increase the amount of this going on in game. I don't really believe that they would be willing to see all of the work they have done to combat these issues go to waste... all of their efforts will have been in vain.

 

I don't care what anyone "pledges," it still reeks of them saying, "Well, we tried... we failed... oh well. May as well give them what they want in the meantime."

 

If botting and RWTing became a huge problem again, I for one would have little interest in continuing to play RuneScape.

They will because it will make them more money, so long as they can stop the fraudulent ones that lost them money.

 

It's not that shocking or difficult to believe. Not wholly evil or wholly bad. Chaotic lawful, rather.

Cheers, Das. Might shine a bit of light on what's really going on here.

Bro, what world of illusion have you been living in? Botting is currently a huge struggle, and it is arguably as prevalent as it has EVER been.

 

I think Jagex has realized that they need to approach this issue just like WoW and the other popular RPGs...let the honest players play the game without restraint, and just monitor botting and RWT as best as you can.

My first thought when reading this?

"Wilderness clues are going to SUCK again."

 

I'm against it for my own selfish reasons I guess. I've never really Pk'ed. They need to make a proper poll like they normally have, where you log in and vote, not a petition which you can just sign up for with someone else's account.

Brb, voting as Zezima.

At first I thought it's a stupid idea, but now you mention 'long-term' accounts, I don't mind at all.
