For me it is a no. I think that Jagex should be focusing on the main game. Instead of splitting the community into even more groups, I think we should try to keep it together more. Change happens, but certainly all updates since 2007 haven't been good. I don't think that to head backwards is the way to move forwards though. The main game will still always be the focus of Jagex's. Remember that, those of you who wish to vote.

IMO, they should just setup a legal private server system and let the players set up servers and give them modding tools for the game.

Everyone should vote yes tbh. Even if you don't want to play it you should still vote yes for the people that do.

I'd rather have a fresh version of the current game

No Grand Exchange ?
No Summoning ?
No Dungeoneering ?
Less quests ?
No SC ? (I actually like it)

No interest ...

Everyone should vote yes tbh. Even if you don't want to play it you should still vote yes for the people that do.


... But I will vote ofc. (no need to be selfish)

I give it a month before people realize they enjoyed the community more in 2007 and not the actually game itself.

I'm glad the vote requires login, I'm still a little annoyed the only vote you can cast is yes. Unless it's very clearly marked that that is the case, unlike last time.

Regardless I wouldn't play it, don't want it and it isn't healthy for the game to split the community.

My initial reaction is no. The server will get botted to shit, as it's 2007 tech vs 2013 bots. They will only bring over anti bot tech "if needed", which means it will be too late by then. People bot the shit out of private servers, and that's even more pointless then botting real runescape.

I also don't want to see 2+ months of wasted development time after the server dies, which it will. The nostalgia will wear off, and people will realise you can't bring back the 2007 atmosphere. Then we will have a wasted server sitting there, getting run by bots. All the while the 2 months they claim it takes to get it running could have been put to better use.

I see one floor with this:
Despite being members only unlike the free trade vote it's a setup of 'vote if you want ignore if you don't' which quite obviously will give very biased statistics. I mean so what if 750,000 people vote for it if there's 1,250,000 who abstained because their view was 'no'

Not going to work. Everyone has to start from scratch, it's not like you can log in and start PKing again (main reason most people want to play the old version). Plus, all the prices are going to be so high. Imagine the first batch of whips being sold for tons of money. Money hardly anyone has because they're here for some "old skool pking", not skilling. Plus, the community won't be the same as 5-6 years ago. Stop living in the past and go with the changes. And Jagex, invest your time and money in the current version.

It would be impossible to quantify how many people ignore it, therefore how many people really oppose it and how many people couldn't care less. It's like the "Like for x, Share for y" thing on Facebook. It's not really a measure of public opinion or a plebiscite, it's just publicity.

But to be fair, it's worked absolutely fantastically because, here we are discussing it, and this is one of the most rapid threads in recent GD history.

Well it's pretty cool they are giving the players the option and that it's a legitimate poll (unlike the free trade one, not that I'm complaining, just saying). I will personally vote yes, however, it's doubtful I'll play it unless it's free access. I think it'd be cool to have the servers around and then everyone could stop whining, I could see botting becoming and issue though. Even though all my best times in Runescape were around that time and that's where I made my money and discovered PvM and had a blast, I've adjusted to the game and moved on and actually enjoyed the EoC from the start, The game seemed to get boring to me and I was losing interest, EoC kind of changed it up and made it a lot more fun for me. I don't see enough content in the old version either to have fun. I'm interested to see if this goes through how many players will actually stick to it (assuming it's an extra fee), could be fun and all for a while but I don't miss some of the old exp rates at all :P.

People are just going to sell the 2007 items for current game gp.

Oh well it'll be nice (if this happens) to see 07 scape implode in a shitstorm of RWT, botting, dead servers and whining about how it's not what people wanted (even though they asked for it) and we can just sit back and say "Told you so"

The first person to get to 99 smithing (and/or mining) will become a gajillionaire.

I definitely had more fun playing back then than I do now. That said, I probably wouldn't get near the same amount of enjoyment if they go ahead with this. I'm all for it, however. Yes it will get botted... who cares, all versions of RS always have been and always will be botted to shit. It's a unique chance to attempt to relive my nostalgia, and that doesn't happen often. I'll vote for it. Hopefully it hits the amount of votes required to not pay 15$ for it, because that is absurd.

Anyone have the time to look through the HS to check how many real players there are? Ie: not counting the 34 total level spambots on trial.
I have a feeling that 750k will be impossible.
