Some will probably try to go out and scam people, and many will probably end up getting scammed themselves. Everyone else won't care because they never experienced what it was like before.

They aren't going to know what hit them, they will have no idea how its going to be. And I agree with dragon, many are going to get scammed for their items, for example the "Here take this noted item and keep your whip on you" I think it used to be done with mystic bodies or something :o

In most cases you're pretty silly if you get scammed. :l People should just be more wary once free trade comes out.

Also, I joined only a couple of years ago too but I'm willing to try and I'll just adapt no matter what. :P If I get scammed, I'll learn a lesson.

I said this in a previous thread, but I'll say it again. Those that weren't a part of the game before they were removed won't have any idea what to expect, a bit of a culture shock if you will. I won't lie to you, I've become used to the GE for most of my purchases and such. Sure it'll still be there, but it will work differently.

The first thought that popped into my head when I heard about this was, "Lambs to the slaughter".

Although, there are lot more protections around these days, so maybe it won't be all that bad

Meh, I've only been scammed once, and that was within a few weeks of joining the game. You have to be pretty dumb not to notice when your getting scammed.

I joined about a year before the wildy update, so I won't be getting scammed :shades:



TT rewards: 2 ranger boots, Zamorak page 1 (2x), Guthix page 1, Ancient page 2

You must construct additional oak larders doors... I mean pylons

Barrows: 10. Total value~22.3 mil. Ahrim Robeskirt is currently the item I have received the most.

Some will rage quit. Some will think it's stupid. Some might like it. I know one guy who thinks hackers will hack more people for some crazy reason. I really don't care what they think though. If they rage quit good for them.

Wow, you mean he thinks giving hackers a much larger financial incentive to hack might increase instances of hacking? Lol, what a moron.

But yeah, any players worth keeping are going to adjust and move on. A lot of idiots will probably do a poor job adjusting ("selling green mask!" "I buy 125m meet me edge bridge" "omg a pile of coins on the ground in the wildy! *hops over*), and that is okay. We need some sort of foil for idiots to stop the game from being so damn full of them.

That's exactly what he thinks actually. We've been trying to convince him that that is the stupidest thing we've ever heard. But he has made up his mind that he is right.

I think that if you have been playing since 2008, you should probably have a good feel for the game already and are experienced enough to know how not to get scammed etc. even with free trade. Others such as players joining within the past few months, might not be so lucky.
