It'll be interesting to see if Jagex change it if loads of people complain.


Except they didn't change it the first time because people were complaining, they changed it because the banks were fining them over the constant reversal of charges stemming from real world traders using stolen credit cards to pay for membership.

I'm hoping that Barrows equipment goes down in price again. Most of the armors more than doubled in the past two years.

I'd say they would either beg for money, scam, be good little boys/girls and be happy or rwt.

By the way, I don't get it.
Why did rwt sites use stolen credit cards for their bots.
I mean, wouldn't they make enough money to just pay membership by themself?

If some one told you that you could make money and pay for the production cost yourself, that would be a good option.

If someone told you that you could make the same money + the production cost by having someone else pay for it, that would be a better option, in the eyes of a thief who is already breaking the rules.

I joined RS in the September of 08... Basically I don't care. I voted no because all I've known is this "new wildy" and it works perfectly fine for me. When they bring back old I'll just stay out the way and I'll keep using whatever grandexchange is there.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.

I just want to give you a big ol' hug.

Trust game is where you give someone something and they give you something more expensive in return. It rises until you give the person something they want, and they book it.

Ex:
You give lobster
They give steel armor
You give mithril platebody
They give a bunch of runes.
You give rune platebody
They leave.

A lot of classic scams are gonna be back. Thankfully, with the big exclamation points and the wealth transfer information on the bottom of the trade window, there are a significant number of deterrents now. But some items were definitely tricky and easy to scam with. Noted mithril/rune items, and Guthan's spear/leaf bladed spear come to mind.

Just a few scams I remember that may still work:
-A two person scam where one person is selling an item for more than its value, and another one is buying it for even higher. Player buys it from the seller, both of the scammers log off.
-Set up a legitmate trade, "accidentally" cancel, and retrade with a lower value item. People used to try this with me with trimmed armour. Ex.: At one point addy(g) bodies were 300k. I'd put up the coins, and they'd put up the platebody. I'd hit accept, and they'd "accidentally" hit cancel, and retrade. I put up the 300k again, and they put up a regular adamant platebody and hit accept. Thankfully I learned to always check the screen carefully, but I be this one got a number of people.
-Noted mithril items exchanged for noted rune items. A good number of noted items, like mithril/rune picks, mithril/rune hatchets, and to a lesser extent armor, look similar.
-Trust games (for the really new players)
-Drop trades (same as above)

Also, the wilderness is gonna be a much more dangerous place (obvious). Slayer tasks like Green dragons and distractions like treasure trails are gonna become much more difficult.

On the plus side, it will be easier to give gifts to friends, share expensive pots with teammates, and of course there were some really epic drop parties!

I think once free trade is enabled again it will take a couple days for prices to settle correctly as I'm sure some people are going to try and manipulate some prices but everything will find it's appropriate value fairly shortly. There will probably be some people trying to scam but I highly doubt many will, I think most people are over hyping all the scamming that could happen, because it your an aware player your not going to get scammed. My only advise is to research the prices of items before you buy to make sure your not over paying, do your research until things settle.

The Wilderness, will be the wilderness, I don't know really to explain the difference since I've stopped playing before the wilderness is what it is now but it was never that dangerous, only on PKing worlds did you ever have to really worry about pkers.

I keep seeing people posting about jagex bring back staking, are they bring back the old style of staking from classic? Where you could stake anyone anywhere?

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'm pretty sure you fell into the sar-chasm.

This is exactly what will happen. Hackers/password scammers will become slightly more common BECAUSE there is an actual financial incentive to steal people's accounts now, instead of doing it just for "lulz."

No. This is the one reason behind their rigged poll: so that when the [cabbage] hits the fan and there are inevitable riots, Jagex can kick back and say "hey, you guys said you wanted this with 1m votes." The other reason was to get people who had retired friends to spread the word and get them to give a second look at returning to RS.

TBH, since the second trade window & wildy ditch/wall. If they get scammed then they really should go jump of a ... hmm nvm they might actually do it. :unsure:

Also since display names, and the recent email usernames update that takes guess / bruteforce out of the question a little more than it used to. And anyone who gets keylogged deserves to lose their account imo.

Most of not all keyloggers are installed after you try a bot or from sites you shouldn't be going into anyways.

I’d be surprised if there are any “riots” due to the side effects of a FT/W rollback.

I also don't expect there will be any "riots" by the No voters. I'm content to let my monthly membership stipend speak for me. If I don't find the game entertaining or I don't care for the direction it is headed, I can walk away.

"Rioting" is for bratz.

PvP is not for me
