Maybe thats what they want :)


Tbf since the poll so obviously failed to do as well as they expected and even now whilst it's "free" it's declining I would not be surprised at all if they kind of wanted it to die and are just allowing it to have it's downward spiral to be eventually shut so that they can't be accused to backtracking or ruining it. They gave exactly what the poll earned and it died anyway so it's communities fault kinda line and for once it wouldn't even be pr spin it'd be literally what happened.

theres no reason to put a fee on f2p 07 worlds.




When first asked about oldschool, there was a poll. It got around 450k votes, well short of the amount of votes needed for f2p oldschool support. As such, there were no f2p worlds.

Later on, Jagex realised there was a demand from people to have f2p restricted worlds in order to pk on them. They put it to the poll, but due to a misleading wording it failed. They repolled it, making it clear what was meant and it passed, getting 75% votes.

That is, the f2p restricted worlds for members only are due to a poll in which the community voted.

There are no f2p worlds for non members since that would cost more for Jagex, and they don't really benefit from it. It would allow people to bot without a cost to them (currently people bot, but Jagex gets paid for it). F2p worlds could be argued to be a 'demo' to attract new players, but the game is from 2007. That is a 7 year old game. Most players are those that have played in the past, and already know what to expect and as a result don't need a 'demo'.

The fact that you don't understand Sy Accursed's logic reveals a lot more about your intelligence than his.


thank you for putting that info strait, and the point that you call ''butthurt kid'' over an internet forum ''logic'' i feel that you have the same 12 year old ''logic'' as sy accursed...
i know jagex has a problem whith bots, but if 07 f2p worlds are members ... how is 07 gonna get more players :S?
so they make 07 servers just for it to die out?


Wow, going off topic here but damn man. Calling people out on logical capabilities with spelling like that is pure comedy. You just made my day. To answer your question, why should they be free. Jagex's Runescape division now has to run 3 games (Classic, Live and 07). Why on earth would they do it for nothing? The fact they even gave players old school servers is a big sign of loyalty to true fans.

So you're not a "true fan" if you don't like OSRS?
Right...

F2p cant play 07 because 07 wouldn't survive without the subscription fee's it generates. This was tested when they released a trial.
