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

They said 2007 servers, not 2003. Try and keep up, please.

If the vote is high enough the free portion of the game will be ... free.

I wish they'd include a list of features that would/wouldn't be included in the August 2007 version.

For example, GWD was released on August 28, 2007. If GWD is in this new server, I'm not interested in playing. I don't like the impact it had on the game-- basically PvM completely overtook skilling for earning money.


I'd still play with GWD, but I agree with the sentiment here.

I think no GWD in such a server would be a mistake, an interesting point no one has brought up, is that no rares will be present in the game.
There needs to be something high end to aim for :P.
Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

No they won't, because there won't be anyone to sell to.

But on a serious note, I'm really not bothered about this either way. Rest assured, these servers *are* going to return because there is an audience for it. I won't be voting though, and outside of nostalgia there is absolutely no reason why I would ever want to play such a backwater, outdated game again.

Actually, now I think about it, if I could vote no, I would still abstain. If there really was enough interest in the servers to get people to get members in big enough numbers to turn a profit, then it isn't really a drain on the main game at all. If there isn't enough interest, then it would rightfully not get more resources than is necessary.

So basically, I'm going to go with the majority opinion, whatever it is.

EDIT: Fixed formatting of the OP.

It amazes me that anyone would vote for less choice anywhere in life. I will vote for it.

I'm surprised that nobody has pointed out some of the more critical updates that would definitely be missing. For example, as I pointed out in another thread recently, fullscreen and variable-resolution modes were added in mid-2008. If this old version is restored, it will be played in a tiny fixed-size window. Jagex talked about adding anti-bot measures in their post, but they made no mention of adding any graphical features like this.

Also, people claiming that you should vote for it for the sake of other people don't understand the purpose of this vote. If Jagex get 900k "Yes" votes, but 700k of those were from people who would never play it in the first place, then they've just committed to their most expensive option for a lot less revenue than they're expecting. This would drain money and resources out of the main game. If you don't want to play 2007-scape, then the responsible thing to do is to abstain.

Quick question: are RSC servers overrun with bots like people believe the 2007 servers will be?

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.


By my estimation this is roughly where spambots end and real players begin:
http://services.rune...pe=0&page=35790

Meaning there's about 787,000 accounts (ignoring obvious spam bots) that can possibly vote, so it'd be a close run thing for sure.

Knock off a few thousand more for inactives and other bots and we prob looking at like 760-780k actual possible voters; then considering want it vs do not care/do not want I'd imagine anything over 600k votes (to be generous) is unlikely, realistically I'd be quite surprised if it got past the 300k region.

Personally I'm not interested in 2007-scape. But I wonder if, for example, the guys heading up swarms of goldfarming bots will decide that it's in their interest to vote yes. New markets?

I won't vote just because everything will be so expensive in-game, the resources will be impossible to sell without the old forums, and skilling will be near impossible without resources. I don't look forward to shelling out 20m for a set of Guthans like I did in the past.

If you vote no/don't vote at all, you'r a selfish bastard. It doesn't effect you in anyway. You can still continue to play eoc.

I really don't play EoC either. I just don't understand what you will value in the old game over the new game. You will hit 99 melees before you will even be able to get a whip. You also won't be able to get dragon bones to train prayer for months because you don't have the cash to even begin to afford them.

I could say the same for anyone voting yes. You are voting to take resources from the main game so you can relive your own personal childhood memories.

You don't really need to train prayer beyond lvl 70 though. Wouldn't be too difficult to DIY

No, they most likely just hire more people just for the 07 servers, so it doesn't take any resources from the main game.

If the backup was 1-2 months older you wouldn't even need 70 :D

Money to hire. Money for servers.

Yes. I know it will produce income too, but I don't see the servers lasting long enough to be worth it. Only reason RSC servers are going is for nostalgias sake. They cost more than they're worth.
