Free to Play HiScores, Action Bar Sharing and Clan Messaging

This week sees the much-requested return of HiScores for free players, and a nifty new feature that lets you share your action bar setups with friends.

Read on for more information, or log in and play right away!

Free to Play HiScores HiScores are back for free players! Free players can once again go toe-to-toe with their subscribing counterparts in the battle for XP gaining glory!

The first thing to note is that free players won't automatically appear in the HiScores - they'll need to log in after today's update to be counted.

A new inactivity filter has also been introduced - free players will be removed from the all time tables if they don't log in for 90 days or more.

Finally, there are some minimum requirements:

  • At least 2154 XP is required to appear in the Overall - All Time table.
  • At least level 15 in the relevant skill is required to appear in any skill-specific All Time table.
  • At least 1000 XP in the relevant time frame is required to appear in a weekly or monthly hiscore table.

We're looking forward to seeing free players climbing high on the HiScores. Have fun, and show us what you're made of!

 

 

    Action Bar Sharing

You can now share your action bar setups with people on your Friends List. Whether you're helping a new player get to grips with combat or sharing an optimal setup with your boss-running group, this is sure to come in handy.

To share your action bar setup, right-click the number on the action bar number on the left side of the interface and select 'share'. Your Friends List will then be opened (if it's not already) and you'll be able to select a friend to share the setup with. They'll be shown what you're offering and prompted to accept or decline.

For full details, head over to the wiki.

Clan Admin Messages

Today sees the release of Clan Admin Broadcast Messages. Working with clan leaders, we've developed this new system for keeping clan members informed of important events.

If you’re in a clan and have ever been surprised by a new recruit or someone leaving, for example, these kind of events can now be broadcast to your clan members.

There's a new fully customisable interface controlling how much information is distributed and who will receive it. It's accessible to clan leaders via the 'Clan Settings' tab within the 'Clan Settings' interface. There's also a new permission for the messaging function in the 'Admin Permissions' tab.

We've made some usability tweaks geared towards clans too, which can be found in this week's patch notes.

I wish they included inactive accounts on the hiscores. Maybe if they got at least one level 99 or something.

Only problem with the highscores now is we cannot measure membership numbers.

Now watch as the remainder of unique names get stolen and snatched up. As much as I love this update for F2P, please Jagex, free up names that haven't been used in years....

Every name is unique.

But how does this help "unique" names get "stolen"? Like more than before. :o

Because people who have had their name changed recently can snipe names by just making an account - also, I'd assume 'stolen' is because if you're "giving" your name to another player, if someone knows the exact date/time, they can snipe it.

 

Ily ping

 

Also, found the top f2p players with no member skills trained - awesome, but kind of lame if they want to get members, they'll be a bit behind :(

 

Rank | Name | Level | Experience

225,633 | Meneer Naab | 1655 | 1,492,371,306

225,634 | Syzygy | 1655 | 1,084,400,386

 

hnng don't feel like checking the other thread of why my puush links aren't allowed

Yeah but I don't see why having F2P show up in highscores makes it easier.

You can tell if a name is inactive now. Before it could have just been a f2p player.

But now it can still be a F2P player, because they're only added to the highscores if they log in after today's update.

They can have skills above 30 which would prevent their name from being freed up, but be inactive.

You still have to log in for your F2P account to show up on the highscores.

 

But lol some F2P 200m's already beat some P2P'ers just by logging in. Seems like old ranks are retained.

I had a bit of a chat with a Mod yesterday, we should be getting new slayer masks this week and they also mentioned that names will be getting freed up soon, however people may not like how they will be made available...

...Right, how much is "Alg" going to cost me? $5? $10? If it's more than that, can I sell "A Local Guy" to the highest bidder as a way to pay for it?

It will be interesting to see the hiscores in the next few weeks as more players (inactive or not) find out about the f2p hiscores update.

 

As for not allowing all f2p accs back on hiscores unless they log in after the update, I'm not really sure why Jagex did that other than they said something about technical issues. If anything, it just shows how few ppl still actively play RS (~503k as of this post) compared to the past. Also, that's not even really an accurate measurement due to inactive players who are still membed.
