Voting for RuneScape's Referendum has now closed. The community's response has been incredible, with well over 1.2 million votes cast in just three short weeks.

The results are now in and, with 91% of the vote, you’ve told us loudly and clearly that you support the restoration of free trade and the Wilderness, and so it shall return!

On behalf of everyone here at Jagex, we want to express our sincerest thanks for your votes, feedback and for playing such an important role in deciding the future of your game. We have been overwhelmed by the number of you who took part, and are extremely grateful to all those who took it upon themselves to campaign so passionately both for and against the proposed update.

While the percentage of votes speak for themselves, it’s important that we seriously consider all of your feedback and comments. So, we’ll be sitting down this weekend to consider the next steps and will be making an official announcement with more details on Monday 17th January.

Mark Gerhard and the RuneScape Team


It's coming back then :thumbup:

Edit: The part in italics was in the original news post, however within 5 minutes of them posting it they removed that line.

Sorry to say this but if you look at the newsletter again you'll see that they have taken away the ", and so it shall return!" piece. ;_;
Either a error or a quick hint like they did with Torva armor in the kb.

I drift in and out, trying some update that interests me.

Are you a wizard? Or do you have unlimited terabytes and the ability to record 24/6 (praise the lord on the Sunday, of course)?

Just saying, i always seem to miss this sort of thing. I'm too slow to even get a print screen... heh. Great work :P

I hope it is out soon, but at the same time i don't. Despite how much i can't wait for the old wilderness and free trade to return, it will still be hard to see bounty hunter and PVP worlds go. I think it would be brilliant if they compensated for PVP worlds with world wide duelling, like in classic. Maybe only in certain worlds, like PVP, but either way it would be great to be able to simply fight anyone where ever. Always felt so epic to down someone in the middle of Ardougne.

Scroll up a few posts to the top of the page. Sadly I didn't get a screenshot because I stupidly decided to refresh the page to see if they really had removed it so I lost it :P

@GuideForScapers: Runescript on IRC usually announces the latest news on the RS website as soon as at appears there so that's how, though I prefer your theories :P

Sweet. I can't wait to start trimming some amrour.


This guy can trim armor for me if I follow him with all my best stuff to the deepest end of the wilderness? Sounds legit to me ;)

They should have done these so-called "meetings" before even the 1st week of the poll, we saw the clear winner.


They must have attempted to release it today, there's no excuse for it taking at least 2 hours to get a poll down, and since it's Friday they had no choice but to move the update to Monday.

If I offer to sell charcoal for 3m and a friend offers to buy it for more but, after I sell it, they decide they don't want to buy it after all, is that technically scamming? :P Not that I'm going to do that like but...

Nope. It was a price they agreed to trade for

I just remembered what free trade is going to bring back...

TRADING COOKED FOR RAW!

Ha! I loved that...

Unids back pls.

We pay we say.

On a more serious note, the only money taken out the game will be in the junk that will become worthless - nevertheless surely items will rise instead of crashing?

Anyway, a few predictions.
- Will probably be implemented in the next 2 - 3 weeks.
- Full torava to be 1.6 - 2b for a set for the next few months.
- Christmas crackers will still be worth more than max cash, will have to be traded with rising new items (such as Torva in bulk) or multiple phats/rares.
- More RWT PMs, maxed ignore list...
- Rev's moved to wilderness volcano (i don't think they'll remove them)
- Full rune back to 200k
- Massive G/E fun, for example people quit and dump all their items on the G/E for 1gp. Alot of snipers me thinks.

And after about 12 months when they realised why they took free trade away in the first place they'll start selling their own Gold to create more profit...

Why wouldn't people just trade spirit shards? Can buy them en masse for 25 each, and sell them back at the same price, right?

Sorry to go kinda off topic but Grimy_Bunyip, your third manga recommendation's url is messed up.

Anyway, I wonder what they're are going to discuss more then just if they should bring it back at the meeting.
I mean, it can't just be that. I'm sure they discussed it earlier when they could see that "Yes" was clearly going to win.
Maybe other extra features.

gracias

anyways I love how MMG is all banzai for this, with his first comment in his CC then the comment that was erased in the recent forum post.
It's like some of Jagex isn't in support with him, but oh well :P

IMO, Jagex has been been planning on bringing back free trade/old wildy for months, long before the first poll. The poll was used as a gimmick to generate hype for Jagex but they've been prepared with the coding for a while. Now they're milking it for what they can and they'll bring it back right around the same time they announce another bonus XP weekend. It'll be 6 months since the last one in March, right? Timing seems to add up. IMO, they want to do another BXPW but don't like the chaos it caused in the non-free trade economy. What better way to have the "best update of the year" by announcing free trade and BXPW at the same time?
