Yup. And any f2p'er using RuneScript / RuneTracker / RuneTrack to work out levels / exp / tracking stats / anything else skill related will be screwed over as well.

A poorly thought out idea by Jagex.

Yikes. Have to manually type the numbers is one thing, but I think they should simply "hide" f2pers from the hiscores instead of not accounting them entirely.

It seems silly they're doing that despite the fact it will hurt f2pers who don't even look at the high schools at all. "Poorly thought out" might be more of an understatement.

The update hasn't happened yet. I think they will see there is enough opposition to it and change it. Voice your opinion on the forums. Jagex is pretty good at incorporating user feedback.

Can I be blunt?

There is a solution to this 'problem': pay the ridiculously high price of £3.50 total a month and your place in the hiscores will be preserved.

Yeah... it's a funny concept, y'know, paying for stuff. [bleep] you Jagex... [bleep] you.

They offered F2pers a ton of shit in the past few years compared to previous years of Rs. Plus this game is one of the cheapest games out there for hourly content. I don't even play at the moment and I haven't let my membership lapse in 5 years because it's just so cheap at 5$ monthly to be able to hop on at any time of boredom.

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


Bro, this is tip.it forums, not RSOF

Thank you for that exceedingly ironic post.

We are entitled to basic human rights (life liberty property), unfortunately being able to view your highscores from a game is not included in that. If you have a problem with a free service being provided to you then do no partake in said service. To all those saying Jagex doesn't know what they are doing, you have to look at the end game. There are things that will happen.

1. Some people leave, those people have had f2p long enough that they probably were never going to get members,
2. People who really care about there highscores get members.


Jagex really has nothing to lose and they have the potential for profit.

Separating the highscores into F2P and P2P would be much better. Removing players from the highscores when their membership runs out is just stupid.

To be honest I'm more miffed about them not being able to use the calcs or stat signatures, I've never been one to care about ranks but the calcs are very useful tools that jagex is completely removing from f2p's toolbox.

This is just as big of a blow to fansites as F2P. Not only will Tip.it lose a lot of traffic from this new wiki but the removal of F2P highscores will affect tons of features Tip.it and other fansites provide.

Things it will affect for F2P and fansites:

Stat Trackers
Stat Signatures
Quest + Skill + Combat Calculators
Runescript commands

All of the above now either can't be used by F2P or are a lot more tedious to use. Think of how this will affect how F2P clans have to go about checking minimum requirements for members as well; there are just so many implications that this will cause and so many other viable solutions to the BS reasoning behind this change.

Not happy with this at all.

There goes all the goodwill they got from finally fixing the dicing problem. Just when I was starting to believe that Jagex actually cared about their own game again. :wall:

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

I am wondering why members were concerned with the high scores anymore aside from some special milestone achievement. After all, it seemed rather trivial since there is a 200m player in every current stat and even a new billion marker isn't noticed as much now. Now that f2pers are to be autokicked off the scores, what is the point in trying to immortalize yourself (don't know why) since it requires a sort of rent.

Doesn't justify the action, though.

Actually, Jagex has a whole lot to lose from this. They lose a lot of publicity and potential revenue from future Members, and actual paying Members that disagree with this move could easily rescind their membership. Not to mention, I can't think of any free game that forces you to pay to show how good you're doing, unless it's a completely paid-for game.

You'll come to realize it in time, that this move is absolutely indefensible.

I'm mostly agreeing with the damage it's doing to fansites. What exactly did Jagex have in mind when they wanted to bond with fansites? I hope this wasn't their idea of the three E's (Embrace, Extend, and Extinguish) that I wouldn't doubt they wanted to pursue four years ago.

It just seems like too much collateral damage for no substantial gain. Who really benefits from this?

I thought the whole point of a fansite was to improve access for RuneScape players to knowledge-based resources. Why, then, does it matter if these resources are found on the RuneScape website or Tip.It? If Jagex's own resources are better at educating players than ours are, how is that their responsiblity and why should they give any care to our own hypothetically dilapidated content?

You seem to be advocating the denial of access to better learning materials from Jagex, simply because it's not been done by us.

I don't see how their wiki would be much better then RSwiki, full of big bugs. So I don't think you will lose many people visiting tip.it

I disagree with removing all F2P from the highscores.

There should be some sort of compromise. If their purpose is to remove the "inactive" accounts, they can easily do that using the "last logged in on DATE".

As for what "DATE" is, I would say 3,6,9, or 12months is reasonable. (The longer the better).

I think the only consolation prize is that Jagex (with their new site update) isn't spouting nonsense about it being "the world's largest free MMO" anymore. At least, I didn't notice any of that.
