So, what happens to GE?


Becomes more like the Auction House I'd guess, which is how it should've been imo.

EDIT: I've been idling in a lot of ircs and I've seen people talking about how they're trying to get to vote. Someone in IRC:

[14:49] <*******> to give you all an idea of the scale of this, i've been running for 45 seconds and grabbed 600 valid rsns

I clicked' vote' thinking it would lead me to a page saying, 'No'. You're meant to vote 'No' by not voting at all? What's the difference between abstaining and disagreeing here?

Not even George W Bush could mastermind this one. Second misleading page title in 24 hours.

I was mass-refreshing to see if any names I recognised came up, when one did... Mine. :|

I don't fully understand the implications of what the return would bring, and will be sure to ask someone later when I'm out of my state of shock.
This voting system is ridiculous, but hilarious at the same time.

They way I see it; theycannot have made such a bad voting system which is stupidly biased to "yes" if they don't have a very nice plan of how to do it. The fact that the vote will pass, if it isn't called off, is certain, it's more a question of whether they truly know what they're doing that worries me.

I guess everyone should stack up on rune axes, rune pickaxes and other essentials that will be bought by bald green men when they return.

So i had no idea i was voting yes i really wanted to say a big no to this.

Also this seems to leave a few holes in the way the game is now. So what will happen with the ge with free trade? Street and rare prices? What about botting? Credit card fraud? They did make these huge game changes for a reason, and after spending years trying to make up for it they are just going right back where they started? Seems like this is going to cause quite a lot of problems. Also i find it funny at all the people that want the old wildy back. I seem to remember a large amount of players saying the wilderness and pking system was broken before these changes.

On a lighter note i will be happy to see staking making a come back.

This is a stunt; it's let me vote multiple times, both logged in and not logged in. :wink:


Pretty sure it's set in stone it's coming back, they wouldn't tease us like this. Think they just want to see how dedicated people are to brining it back. But f yeah.

Of course jagex released this so called "poll" already knowing what they are going to do. The poll is just there to, umm, get us excited :P

Well it's working. There are 'riots/celebrations' on nearly every world for it. Everyone's gone crazy.

Looking on the positive side? It's bosshunting time.

This is a Chicago-style election.

Hell, I expect The Old Nite will be voting, if he hasn't already.

How dedicated, or how misled people can get? :unsure:
I'm sure at least 30% of the votes are people who were thinking there would be a "no" option.

Never have i seen a vote so [developmentally delayed]ed in my entire life. I mean, seriously? No no option, people can vote for you and to top it all you can multiply your votes by repeatedly inserting your name. I bet 5k there'll be some bot to mass vote on this.

I really don't like this, while free trade is nice, it just opens a floodgate of RWT agents. Not only that, but the wildy is fine the way it is. If people want to PVP, they go to a PVP/bh world. If they just want to wander around, they go to a regular world. They'd be better off by improving the pvp drop system then allowing the former method, also a way to rwt.

This gets a no no from me :thumbdown: :thumbdown:
