If you don't care enough about rs to play $6 a month, why in the world would you care about highscores ?

Also, what is the purpose of a business but to make money ? Jagex's goal isn't to be nice to people, it's to make money.

I understand businesses are about making money.. but if they're actually TAKING AWAY a feature from the F2P game, that would be a really desperate money-making move. Enough to suggest that they're not just money hungry, but low on money and need to get it anywhere they can.

Wow. Awful high-scores update.

I understand removing inactive accounts, but come on...

Seriously...? I can only hope that F2Pers get their own highscores page. This is simply not being fair to the F2Pers who put up with botting crap (which is far worse than P2P) for such a long time.

'Now you must have logged on in the last two months to see yourself on the highscore table.'
There you go Jagex, I just fixed the inactivity problem without alienating half of your users. You're welcome.

I have been a member many times in the past (probably a year total spread over like six), but I keep coming back to F2P because it feels more homely. While I don't play to gain ranks, it is nice to see how I stack up against others in the game. Now I can't do that when I'm F2P, even though I've put nearly $100 into this game?

I think a separate F2P highscore table would be reasonable; I don't see how it would be that difficult to implement and given how much harder it is to level skills in F2P, it's basically a different game anyway.

My condolences go out to all that had F2P blogs with progress trackers :(

In-regards to Wiki-style RS main page, I think it's a reasonable change, but it would be difficult to moderate. Both the RSKB and current RSWiki are filled with inaccuracies and sometimes poorly written articles. I'm interested in seeing how people qualify for Wiki updates.

The problem with Tip.it and other sites that cannot be freely edited is that they are relatively slow to update, although they are generally more accurate.

I will also openly admit that I primarily use the RSWiki for information since the search algorithm and format setup within wiki software is simply more robust and elegant than Tip.it's current Google search method.

The highscores thing doesn't bother me as much as it seems to bother many here. Probably because I've never cared about the highscores. :P

I'm looking forward to the Main Page update, and the wiki-area sounds very interesting. As long as blocking troll-accounts and the requirement to edit it is good enough, I think it's going to be very cool.

Of course I'll still use Tip.It, I'm here for the talk anyway. No calculators have pleased me as much as the ones Tip.It has either. It might be a hit for new players looking for fan-sites however. I can't say for certain.

I've got to say, personally, the hi-scores becoming members only is very depressing. There are some very dedicated F2P players who have very good stats, and this is only taking away any glory they may have had.

Not a great move in my mind, and definitely not community-friendly.

I must express my disapproval of removing F2P high scores. As said before, being F2P is a horrible indication of active playing.

At first I was excited but now that I think about it, I'm worried. I dislike f2p getting kicked off for the sole reason of legit f2p accounts. I wonder how the RSOWiki will look like. Hope it isn't full of trolls.
A reflection is just a distorted reality held by glass and your mind.

Since my account is F2P, there are essentially no records of me ever having played?

Right. Well that seems marvellously fair, doesn't it?

Goodness sake JaGeX, I thought you could do better that this.

That highscore update is incredibly stupid. Seems rather low, even for Jagex. However, I hope they fix the highscores a bit and make them viewable in just 1 page like on their old site, rather than having to scroll down multiple times to be able to view all of it.

It may be. But Javascript trickery need not apply.

If that's how the front page will look, I have one concern, the "Play Now" link/button may be hard-to-see for younger audiences that like things smack-bang in the middle, I'd suggest having a "Play Now" button right under the new RuneScape logo (which I think actually looks pretty nice).

Hmmm, weren't they always bragging on how much time some F2P'ers invested into the game? Seems like money is becoming the sole reason of JaGex' excistance... (instead of providing a fun game)

Tbh, even if we say Jagex 100% only cares about money and nothing else(and on top of that say that we're okay with that), it's STILL stupid.


Runescape from the outside frankly, looks like a horrible game. Only if you have played it for a while you do understand why it's actually a great game. By continuing to deteriorate the F2P game, they essentially destroy their game in the long run. Sure, if you think simply, more membership incentives -> more members, but it doesn't work like that. Would you be the full version of a bad game? Obviously not. The same applies here. Of course member's runescape should be far superior, but f2p should still be a good game, just with less stuff to do. As said, for most players, you will actually spend months in f2p before you even think about getting members. If something in f2p makes you quit before you get to the stage of thinking about membership, that's one customer lost. And f2p runescape to a large portion consists of levels. There aren't that many activities to do. How in seven hells is a game centered around levels supposed to keep the broad mass of people playing if they can't compare themselves?

I personally don't give a damn about highscores...but I really understand the frustration of those affected, and can't put into words how stupid this move really was #-o

Does this mean stat sigs for f2pers won't work?

Unsure on my stance on making high scores solely for members, but I think those with 100m+ exp should be recognized for their hard work. Also, I dislike how they pushed back Wilderness graphics since it looked really interesting.

Correct. F2P will not be able to use stat signatures or the tool on calculators that automatically retrieves their stats.
