Trade Off
Hit the nail right on the head for me! People thought I was insane to have voted no, but now look how dirty things are being played now. Indeed, are you happy now, yes voters? Are you happy to have your bank cleaned out? :blink:

Trade Off really hit me. I was one of those people who voted "yes" just for the lulz. But some days after, I got thinking. "Did I really just say yes?" I wished that I didn't vote yes because of "Do we really need free trade?" I wished that I could take it back, but it wouldn't have mattered. This article pretty much took my thoughts and put it on paper.

Are you happy now?


Yes. I am glad I voted yes. I don't have my bank cleaned, and that's because I follow the rules and would never bot :-) I have never been hacked either, and plan on keeping it that way :shades: I too, laughed at those who got cleaned for cheating, good riddance.

The article seems pretty one sided, ending it with 'Are you happy now?' just makes us feel bad for voting 'yes' when in fact we are all entitled to our own opinion.

It's obvious that the author of the first article doesn't know how rwt really works. Most of the time it was taking advantage of the ge system by buying phats and other rising items for straight up cash while giving the seller real life money. This is much easier than this stupid notion that people went on their accounts and actually farmed the money.

Trade Off

Finally, someone with the courage to stand against the crowd and point out what should be obvious. We were doing quite well without free trade and the wilderness. We were all used to it and you didn't have to worry about scams and it was all just better overall IMO. I voted yes for the wilderness, because the new one sucked. I just spent half an hour in the deep wildy and saw next to nobody. With rev's, I would have died in that amount of time three times over.

Anyway, great article, NS :) (TS_StormRage)

Who cares about staking bugs and merchants abusing free trade? It was worth saying yes just to have wild back.

This.

Usually each article I read I always end up viewing both sides of the story and being comfortable with my decision or perspective for that particular topic. With this article I somehow feel attacked just for voting 'yes', which makes me not want to read any articles anymore :-(

Just my 2 cents for feedback :thumbup:

Trade Off

Yes I am happy now. Let the fools get scammed/hacked/lured, take off the safety nets. Bots and RWTers dont matter to me either, they can do what they want, it doesnt directly impact my gameplay. I voted yes and after this first week I would have votes yes again

I don't think he's attacking anyone, just trying to stir the pot and get people discussing :thumbup:

The wild west atmosphere free trade brings back along with the wilderness makes me glad I voted yes. Not to mention so many of my dear old friends returned and are up to no good. It's a lonesome feeling to have 90% of your friends list offline in a mmorpg.

I am happy now. In fact I'm quite content.

i thought it the tone was more whiny/complain-y and resentful than stirring the pot or inciting discussion.

Staking returned. Yes, gamble your entire bank, why don't you. You're maxed in melee, you can beat that level 110 nub in a fist fight even when AFK-ing. But oops! A bug happened, and suddenly that nub has a unicorn healing him throughout the match until you are dead. How many people do you think have come back to RuneScape, possibly to some fond memories, and have subsequently rage quit over this?


Why would you stake your whole bank? Yes it's a glitch that Jagex shouldn't have let into the game, but at the same time people should have common sense not to risk so much anyway.

It gets worse, much worse. Only hours after Free Trade was reinstated, many people saw their bank emptied. They had been using one of the popular botting programs in the past, which then recorded their login details. All of the items ended up in the hands of a popular gold-selling company. Now, I didn't shed a single tear (I actually laughed my ass off), but when RWT-ers can manage to deter people from botting where Jagex can't, you have to admit that there is a problem.


How is this a bad thing? People that botted got punished, albeit not by Jagex. Serves them right.

But 91% of you didn't care about that. You saw what you wanted and ignored the consequences, even though the warnings were pretty clear. I can only guess how bad things might get, so I'll leave this one up to you to answer:


I voted yes because, funnily enough, I knew these things wouldn't affect me and I wanted free trade back. The market will stabilise soon enough, are you telling me this is worse than not being able to buy something from the GE pre-update because some manipulation clan had bought it out? That won't happen anymore.

The first day of me returning to RS (February 5th), 3 people tried to scam me. :thumbup:
I voted no, but alas.

Bugtesting was horrible but expected.
People getting hacked, crying about it, then realizing that their crying proved they botted = priceless

I'm not angry I voted yes because I have enough common sense not to log onto RuneScape and do anything important for at least 6 hours after every update, and then to stay away from any new content for a day.

While I don't mind the usual mindless chicanery that has always been present, the increased activity involving stolen accounts through means unrelated to scamming kind of annoys me.

Fact is now that there is more incentive to steal, the overall security risk has been increased, and no doubt you will not be recompensed for any losses for stolen accounts even if you haven't cheated.

The most annoying part of Free Trade returning is that the amount of scammers trying to post scam links on our forums have increased tenfold. <_< I can't say I was excited about them coming back but so far it's not proven a problem to me personally. The GE was screwy at first but it seems to be slowly stabilising.
