Return of the wildy/free trade-do you regret your vote?

Recommended Posts

i was kinda regretting ft until now when all of sudden gold pile appeared on ground (in crowded place) and i picked it up and it was nearly max cash...first i couldnt believe what i picked up...have no idea who dropped or why but its going to get me all my buyable skills to 99 lol

i guess being legit and honest finally paid off...

 

Amazing luck, grats!

 

But seriously that person who drop traded almost a max cash stack on the ground is beyond stupid imo.

I voted yes for no other reason than I thought that this may extend the life span of the game by making more people play/return to RuneScape.

 

With all of the things that have taken place over the few months such as dead content, a noticeable increase in hacking, botting, and RWT, Jagex's lack of significant action, and most recently the controversial Vanity Item/Loyalty Rewards I am definitely having second thoughts.

No. I voted Yes because I wanted Free Trade back. I didn't like the Quest Points/4Months Friends Trade Limits because I had to do lots of Quests. I have 33 Quest Points now @ 5 combat. Its Great since I'm able to get Traded >1M Gp/Items fast.

Yes and no. Somethings I see now and it really wouldn't of affected the way I play or what I do in RS. The bots and gold farmers on the other hand are starting to get a bit out of control, can't say we didn't see this coming with the reintroduction of free trade.

I wasn't around at the time of the 'vote', but I probably would've voted no.

 

Upon logging back on for the first time in some years (two I think), I was amazed at how many people advertising their gold-doubling enterprises and gold-selling websites were there - pretty much every single bank I went to had at least one, to speak nothing of the Grand Exchange. I'd have been lucky to see one RWT website ad back then, and I didn't even know about the money doubling scam. Seems like it's the new armor trimming.

 

I won't say anything about the bots, since I don't know if they decreased in number during the restriction. Though, I do know that their existance is the reason I hate Mining in the first place, so if they did decrease - well, another reason to vote no!

 

As for the upsides of free trade... I couldn't care less. Giving stuff to friends? I never really had anyone to give anything to. PKing? I've always despised that - Mining has enough PVP for me. Staking? Same thing I said about PKing applies here.

 

Well, it's not like it matters. I wouldn't be able to train Mining anyway, regardless of the result.

I personally am happy with these changes; being a extremely long term Runescape player, this is simply a return to the RS i grew up loving and missed oh so much. As far as the return of scamming and begging goes, welcome to real life not everyone's that honest or self sufficient so just take it in stride and learn to be careful in your dealings. If i can put up with some homeless guy asking me for change every time i pass him on the street, you can deal with some level 60 in Varrock bank asking for "Fr33 St00f".

 

As for my vote, its null and void as was taking a 7 month break from Runescape at the time.

I say bots are bad, ge manipulators are bad and chat spammers are bad. All I say is that all 3 of those arent much worse now then before.

 

Im in no fantasy world

 

Hahahahaha.

 

Funny, I am just trying to get someone to post evidence on something. Show me a before and after picture of popular training areas.

 

Show me the GE when manip clans were advertising vs gold sellers now.

 

I take this side of the argument because it is easier to disprove something until you can prove it is real instead of the latter. So I say again, things are not much worse now then during restricted trade. Prove me wrong.

 

 

Stuff Im expecting and will lol over.

 

1.) Self evident "truth": Its obviously worse now, your a fool to not know that (I say prove your nostolgia glasses arent rose tinted)

 

2.) Band-Wagon Fallacy: Everyone thinks its worse now (should be obvious why this make for a bad argument)

 

3.) Name Calling: You're just a troll ass spammer noob (calling me nice names doesnt prove your point any better then not saying them)

 

4.) Ad hominem: Since your opinion is different then mine you must be some botter or gold seller (could fall under name calling again, but I think this more accurately is to try and protray me as some monster to discredit what Im saying instead of going for my argument)

i voted yes, but i regret it now...this is nothing like the old wildy, in the old wildy almost no-one ran or teled, they had respect and honor.

 

i never thought id miss bh worlds until a few weeks after old wildy came back.

 

my two cent.

 

keep free trade/drop system.

 

get rid of old wildy and bring back bh crater or bh worlds.

While I wasn't playing at the time and was more or less impartial to the result of that poll, if I were given the option to vote I'd probably vote no to free trade and wilderness. I feel there's a shrewder use of bots compared to pre-"freedoms" and although I appreciate the low prices of raw materials, it really hits home when I can't even camp frost dragons while competing with 8-10 other "players".

I voted yes because I was psyched on getting the free trade back.

Wilderness can go do itself, cause it's pointless.. The other pk system we had was better.


TRUE DIS.

How so?


The challenge of a mistake is not to avoid it. The challenge of a mistake is dealing with the outcome.
