I hope seniority counts for something when they're picking beta participants. I'm pretty spotty with my membership.

All F2P content can be tested by members. F2P barely provides income for Jagex, start paying if you feel you're entitled to perks such as Betas.

Why can't the Big Bang be done by the hand of God?

It could have, but it is next to impossible because it also could have been caused by the flying spaghetti monster, or one of the other infinite number of deity possibilities.

Many of the f2p clan world are p2p as well. I still think people will mostly check p2p stuff, you're right, but f2p stuff will almost definitely get critical hands on it at one point or another.

I don't think there will be much in way of difference between this "f2p stuff" and "p2p stuff" aspect. Really, do any of you think that there will be much of an issue other than something to do with armor and weapon statistics scaling? While going from one set or items or combat skill to the other it might be a not hairy for the players, but I am fairly confident it will be Judy players getting used to the system. I wouldn't put it past them to make some item stay tweak to keep item combos from being too stacked, but like I said it'll just be statistics and scaling. Sure let it be taken for granted some action bar issues or this new ability system their bring out, but that will most likely be something experienced in both areas.

I'm definitely excited about this, although the people in the warring community aren't so much.

can't say I blame them. For how they're discussing the combat change, they're making it sound like (assuming we're keeping the same max hit ceilings) you'll have a dps drop if you're not actively clicking...that's impossible almost in a 120-opts pile. It potentially has a drastic effect on warring as we know it.

I like the part where I think I am garunteed full access to the beta by virtue of a long membership run. Wasn't really expecting anything like that. I half expected them to only allow new members in as a promotional :lol:

But seriously, sort of excited, though I don't appreciate all the hype so far out. I am not the most patient person for this sort of thing, so I need to compensate by not allowing myself to get excited. I'm now my own kill joy :D

Hmmm sorry if this has been asked before but I do want to know this.

I was a member since around 2006/2007 until around 2010 and then I took a break from rs and slowly coming back to it and read about the combat change.

Is this based on the current member status based off the forums or do past players who have been members for a long period of time before and may have taken a break can participate in beta too.

Sorry for the dumb question

As far as i can tell from Mod Posts on the RSOF, it's going by current membership period.
I think it was Mod Mark who used the example of "If you have been a member for the entire period up until now from the 25th of May 2011, you'll get in."
Not worded exactly like that, but with the same meaning. That date was also an example, not the real due date. (Which I believe is set when you apply for the BETA.)

you think p2per's will take the time to test the f2p stuff? i doubt that lol

Majority of the people in top f2p (pk) clans are p2p and they are the people whose opinions matter the most as there is no boss hunting in f2p. As for pvm, low level members use the same gear as f2p for the most part...

Can we really speculate about that? If the change is as large as it's heralded to be, we can't really say what the division between f2p and p2p combat will end up being.

Fewer "abilities"? Damage caps to abilities? From what I can glean, it seems to be shifting away from equipment being an important thing. It may well end up something similar to WOW, whilst f2p you can only train stats up to level 60. (XP continues over.. but level never rises) Perhaps those rumoured f2p and p2p worlds will exist.

Of course, they could run the beta where you start as a level 3, with 10-20 times normal XP rate, or change on the beta the xp required for levels, so getting to level 50 is half of getting to 99 for example. This would allow people to test lower level gear and combat as well as higher level.

I do believe the beta will be unlike the world we have now. Perhaps just a flat green land with hoardes of monsters. To test just combat it doesn't need to be that much more.

I thought the combat beta was only open to people who had been a member for over a year, but when I logged in today I saw this:

It says I have to log into a members' world to claim it though. Oh well, it's in my bank for now. Hopefully it won't disappear when the beta is over.
