Folks, Jagex said we will pay an extra 15$ if we only get 50k votes. Trust me we will get over 300k votes.

 

The way I read it was, if you get <249,999 that membership fee will stand. So you better hope your 300k is pretty solid.

 

Trust me is. Don't forget plent of people will become purchase membership once again just to vote. (Like myself)

 

And I'm sure you a credible way to substantiate your claims, correct?

 

The numbers clearly work to get at least 300k votes, it's been proven in the past few posts. 700k+ maybe a stretch... But we shall see in a few more days.

Trust me there is enough. Don't forget plenty of people will purchase membership once again just to vote. (Like myself)

 

This relies upon the assumption that many who quit still lurk around as they have not been able to move on, opposed to them being long gone and oblivious to rs developments.

 

It also relies on the assumption that they are willing to spend $5 just to vote on the off chance it *might* get them back a game they quit playing.

 

Both these premises to me seem flimsy at best, downright ludicrous at worst.

 

Many of them still do exist. I've proven that by pointing out all those servers with ridiculous amounts of supporters.

300k votes is possible. I don't know if it will happen...

There's no way Jagex would make a rod for their own back, given they've basically written the rules of this game. It's fair to assume 300K is more than achievable, and we have no guarantee of just how fair this 'vote' will be (I say this with the Free Trade vote in mind).

You also have to realize, this update would be greatly beneficial to goldfarmers. With current RSGP prices this low, this would introduce a new market for bots / farmers to gain money from, and I wouldn't be shocked if the major gold farmers made a bot script to vote yes on all the accounts they control for this reason.

 

As well, if they for some reason let the voting work with TRIAL memberships (unlikely, but never know), then the 750k I'm sure would be hit from scripts making accounts and voting.

Yeah, but then most of them will leave Main RS and leave you guys with a better enviornment.

Not likely. They'll just bot both. Their capacity to make and run bots is not the limiting factor in their operations, it's server space (spawn overcrowding).

'Voting limited to accounts from 2007 or before' would be the best.

I wouldn't really count on it. If anything, I see them just making new bots for the old rs to run at the same time as current rs.

I'll be voting Yes.

 

Sad people here that only say "no" You are just selfish, nothing is going wrong with your little EoC.

 

Voting for something in ignorance is worse. This vote is a show of interest. Nobody is voting against it, they're saying they're not interested.

This.

I'm not voting because I don't find a 2007 version of runescape interesting.

If I voted then it would just be an invalid vote.

Imagine this scenario.

500k people voted yes, yet only 250k end up playing it.

Jagex would be forced to set up the servers for free, no extra revenue other than the membership new players who currently aren't member set up.

That's an extra $5 loss per player just because people threw in invalid votes.

 

I totally posted that like 3 pages ago lol.

my difinition of noob is i dont like u, either u are better then me or u are worst them me

Buying spins make you a bad person...don't do it. It's like buying nukes for North Korea.

Well if it bothers you that the game is more fun now, then you can go cry in a corner. :shame:

your article was the equivalent of a circumcized porcupine

The only thing wrong with it is the lack of a percentage for when you need to stroke it.

Are you really that naive? Before I was putting it down to a lack of forum experience, but now I see you're completely delusional.

A new poll has been added to the tip.it homepage regarding 2007 servers, it'll be interesting to see the results so vote :).

I’m curious …

 

If you cannot carry over your account from 2007, and there’s no GE from which one may “generate” items – where will phats come from? There will be no rares at all?

i dont know what you mean about the GE part, but they havent released any information how or if rares are distributed.

I'd assume no rares in the game, no reason that there has to be really.

Can't post a source, but I believe that they said there were no rares?

At least, that's what I've heard from the nostalgia [bleep]

First of all, Gold Farmers need bots right? The only working bot for the 474 client is SCAR which is now dead. The only possible bot people could use is SIMBA but it needs to be programmed for the 474 client.

 

Okay maybe I was being naive excuse me for that but look at least it would improve the situation. The problem with todays Runescape is that it's just tooo damn easy to bot. Download the bot, enter your information, click play, and you are set. SCAR and SIMBA are extremely complex to use. So when a lot of players leave regular RS for the old RS, the gold farmers will lose even more possible future customers. So RSGP will have really no value and in a way Gold Farmers will decrease. They will shift their balance to the old RS servers and trust me there will be a difference in the amount of Spam bots.

For nostalgia's sake, I'd like to play it once in a while. Heck, I still oftentimes go back and play games I've beaten several times over for nostalgia's sake. But I also know that it would not be 2007 RuneScape. The community is too different nowadays. I used to cut yew trees "AFK" (or better put, while doing something else on the computer). Would I do that now? Probably not. This is because conversations with old RS friends were just awesome, inside RuneScape and outside of it (clan forums, IRC, etc), and events with my clan (The Moriquendi) were just a blast. But that's all gone now.

 

2007scape would be an empty shell devoid of all the reasons I enjoyed 2004-2007 RuneScape.

Numbers really work in Jagex's favor (Business wise):

50,000 or more votes: Jagex made 397,500 Dollars

250,000 or more votes: Jagex made 1,987,500 Dollars

500,000 or more votes: Jagex made 3,975,000 Dollars

750,000 or more votes: Jagex made 5,962,500 Dollars
