It does in the main game, I don't see why it wouldn't in 07 as well.

Probably a combination of that, and people who let their membership expire and were removed from the hiscores.


wait, if you let your membership run out it removes you from the hiscores?


No, my memberships expired and i'm just using the free march month before re-subbing and i'm still on the OS highscores...

Maybe it'l change after the free month though...

I dunno what free month means but if you have access to p2p content under the free month then I'm sure that would include hiscores... Which shows nothing if F2P players remain on the highscores.

Anyone who voted on the poll gets 'free' access to OSR no matter their P2P status until the end of march. My membership expired but I cant still play OSR, just not EOC.

My character is still on the EOC highscores also...

As I understand it, players aren't automatically removed from the hiscores when their membership runs out. Jagex seems to do purges every few weeks.

Wait...WHAT?!
So, you technically have NO MEMBERSHIP.
You aren't able to use Member EoC worlds, but you're able to use OS servers?
How?

That "free month" was only given out under the assumption that they would be charging more to use the OS servers. So instead of added the OS additional fee of like...6 dollars or something, you don't have to pay that fee. But as I understood it, you still needed to be a member to access the servers.
Now...since they decided to extend this "No additional Fee" thing for 6 months, I assumed this was no longer a thing...

If it still is...and you have no membership, but still using the servers, isn't that extremely unfair to everyone ELSE who voted, but decided to just pay for more than 1 month of membership?

I think you are over-reacting. He got only 1 free month, because he let his membership run out. As I understand, whats this month is up he will have to pay membership like everyone else.

And as I understand it, we're talking about a potential of hundreds of thousands of players getting screwed a month of free membership they were supposed to receive. But didn't...because they decided to just pay for months in advanced.

They didn't intend it to be that way, it just happened. It is only like $7, this isn't a big deal.
Besides, March is pretty much over now anyway. :P

It's not a big deal to single people, but when you consider that this is thousands upon thousands of players, that's A LOT of money that shouldn't have been spent.

Why "shouldn't" they have spent it? Yes they COULD have gotten around it, but they are playing the game and IMO they SHOULD be paying for it. Just because you can do it doesn't mean you should.

So you agree that it's unfair that people who STOPPED paying membership are still getting access then?

Eh i can see why you'd be upset but personally I feel like I missed a special deal, rather had a bad deal forced upon me. I was oblivious of the free month and happy to pay for this month. Nothing has changed over standard procedure.

And it really is a small amount of money. (Somewhere between £4-8?) I've been paying auto so long and it's so insignificant I don't even know :P

Yes I do, but again I don't believe it is a big deal.

There are tons of bots at maples today =/

3 of them all logged at the exact time so maybe it was a wipeout? Or maybe their bot timer or whatever was timed to logout all at the same time... Meh.

The thing that annoys me most by botting is the god damn players discussing bots or pretending they're not botting. I'm sure 75% of conversations on runescape are: "lol im not bot r u?" (Then this guy will go silent for 5 hours after we establish he's not a bot and he feels safe starting up his bot) Everyone. It's why I hate skilling. And skillers.

Yep, membership expired just at the end of the month so there was no money in the bank when it auto renewed, thus payment bounced and members expired, but I can still play osrs.

Pretty sweet, shame you missed out, that pesky auto-renew.

Now watch me get bank charges for the bounced direct debit. ;)

I actually cancelled my membership just before the poll but had enough days left to vote. I just resubscribed today since the free month was going to run out. Anyone could have played off the free month if they wanted to.

Did they make treasure trail bots? I love tt's.

No. Scripters are obviously not going to do a money-making method that requires at least 10x more effort for them. Makes more sense to just bot regular money makers and make multiple accounts, obviously. Dungeoneering bots were eventually made but only 1 was semi-capable and the rest just quit if it saw certain puzzles and none of them were that good. I found it kinda interesting watching what clips of dungeoneering bots I could.
