After much dissusion about the "possibility" of free trade and the old wildy being re-added I decided to make this poll.

So basically would you rather:
1) Keep your current account
or
2) Trade it for a rolled-back verson of your account as it was in dec 2007 and rs as it was before the dec 07 update?

Please only vote if you acutally played rs back then.

I'd want to have my acc to pre-05, None of this chaotic crap, no arma in castle wars, bandos ETC.

But I would definitely pick pre 07; Rs has really done down the gutter since then.

07 account, although i don't think it's a fair question. Alot of the users on these forums have gained most of their levels in the last 3 years and don't really know what they are missing. For me, as i haven't played too much after the removal of free trade, it would be great.

I've gained 3/4ths of my exp in the past 3 years, but I would still being willing to sacrifice it. 28.3m of it since the beginning of the past summer.

It's still a loaded question, and if anyone who joined after 2007, they just can't have clear perspective. I'd be losing around 200m total xp if this were to happen.

If the total and combat levels on the Runehead hiscores are anything to go by, I'd say this is a very presumptuous opinion. Sure, they could theoretically have gained it all in three years but I doubt it.

New RuneScape; I prefer the D&Ds and I frankly never cared much for PKing or free trade.

The question is useless when everybody can vote[/to admins]

First they came to fishing
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

Then they came to the yews
and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

Then they came for the ores
and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Pre 2k7 rocked so hard. The game had a soul back then.

My lame drops:
6 Effigys
1 D Med - 1 D Dagger
1 Verac's Helmet - 1 Guthan's Platebody

Thats why I said to only vote if you have played before the update, and anyway exp should not matter to much because games should be played for fun, and yes I realise everyone has their own ways to define playing for fun, but I feel that back then you didn't need really high skills to have fun or alot of money. Whereas today all of the big money-makers require really high stats, gwd( 90+ combat stats), frost drags(85 dung), grenwalds(85+ hunter). Mainly, I just feel like I was playing a game back then, where other players could care less what stats you had, and now it's just one big grind fest, where people insult other because they have low stats or "bad" 99, in my case I got 99 cooking and get insulted for it...

No. I played back then, I can survive without pking and free trade. While it would be great and all, I would be sacrificing 5 years of work. I believe an account with no black marks active and 150+ days of playtime would suffice.. All these polls belong in questionaires if I interpretted the rules correctly. :unsure:

I might consider it... only because I've barely played RuneScape in the past 3 years so I may not be missing much :P

My account isn't extraordinary, or decent of any sort, but <2007 my account was awful. I'm content with its current stats and the current content of the game.

Except, what if someone played for, say, two years, discovered tipit, made an account here afterwards?

Either way, I doubt that admins could do it anyways.

Personally? I probably wouldn't. But 3 years is too long a time to view back for me. If my pre-2007 account was laid out in front of me, with how RS was back then, only then do I think I could honestly make an actual decision on this.

Squab unleashes Megiddo! Completed all quests and hard diaries. 75+ Skiller. (At one point.) 2000+ total. 99 Magic.

The rest of my sig. You know you wanna see it.

Whilst I had more fun playing back then when stats and efficiency weren't important compared to the elitism seen now, I still prefer the game as it is now.

Been playing since late 03/very early 04 and i prefer the game the way it is now. Only a certain shift in community would be nice.


And wilderness...

I sure did love merching back then but GE is just too convinient.




Anyway, people have always complained "RS SUCKS NAO, BRING BACK *2yearsearlier* RUNESCAPE" . Back in 07 everyone complained "BRING BACK RUNESCAPE THE WAY IT WAS IN 05"



Whilst I had more fun playing back then when stats and efficiency weren't important compared to the elitism seen now, I still prefer the game as it is now.


Yes, the whole efficiency crap is killing the game at the moment.

I'm not sure which one I'd choose. A lot of my levels and wealth has been gained in this past three years. Infact, it's the highlight of my rs "career" but I did also play (not as much as now or as seriously) before '07 and liked it a lot more than now.

Yeah I wouldn't want it rolled back.

My feelings exactly. I've put too much work in the past 3 years to just have it erased.
