Agreed, this Ironman stuff is completely lame, and a pointless idea. Only a very minority of players engage in that sort of stuff, and they happen to be able to manage themselves quite well without Jagex's help (many are part of the TIF friend's chat). Why design an update such as this that will only probably appeal to a small amount of players? Meh. That and yet again splintering the community again. That seems to be their gimmick these days. Either it's bonus weekends, or creating yet another version of the game to draw in some niche audience. Hardly long-term solutions.

it's namely an update aimed at the interest from the osrs crowd. I'm glad they're not limiting it to that game and offering it across the two main platforms of runescape (excluding classic obviously)

The Ironman thing sounds excellent. The main problem being if you still have to compete over the resources or if they will work on an individual basis. If the resources and monsters, where possible, work individually it may just attract a new set of people that do not want to play now due to the "interacting" with certain types of players. Not just the PKers either, but also the rude, crude and just plain ignorant people.

 

Solo gameplay with a chat for multi-player.

 

No trading also eliminates all real world trading, except for account selling, as they would have no way to deliver the goods. Just make sure that drops only appear for the person that earned them and anything dropped or sold to NPCs automatically disappears from the game and never shows up for other players to begin with.

 

If the resources and monsters do not work individually, then it isn't really much of an improvement.

The aim is to create a self-sufficient experience, not a single-player experience.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

So what happens if Ironman fails? Do they offer everyone free phats too?

I don't understand the point you're attempting to make. Ironman isn't intended to be the main playstyle. It's obvious enough that there is a small section of the playerbase that enjoys the diy/ironman playstyle and having an official method of doing so is great.

It's no different than an update aimed towards pkers or any other group.

I'm just wondering if the player base for this mode is going to be that small, why even have it? If they want to lure people into playing it and to continue to play it, will they use the same tactics they used for OSRS?

They already have special chat icons, a special outfit, and of course separate hiscores, so in a way they already have.

By small I don't mean miniscule. By no means a majority but certainly something you can't turn a blind eye to, with how much MORE popular self sufficient gameplay has become due to streamers. Also people love to show off.

More than that, official support is bound to give it a lot more attention.
