In Topic: what would u like for christmas?

25 October 2007 - 03:25 AM

Rares for everyone! I would love to see rares die and the high end economy crash onto all the lower economy. The lower economy (ore, logs, etc) will recover, but the rare economy will never go high again if they do this every christmas.

Who doesn't drop trade anyway? :-s

What does that have to do with the topic of the thread? If you read it, the OP asks why such a rule is in the game. If you read it and still posted this, you are just a forum [bleep] going for +1s. If you aren't going to contribute just don't post.

That rule is there for simple balance purpose.

Imagine an average level 90 gets a party hat from a death drop, and sells it to get a fury, whip (mind you, he probably had that one already), dragon boots, barrow melee armor, maybe the supplies for a fire cape, etc...

Now he goes into cwar and find an average level 90, with full rune, whip or d scim, rune boots, and glory etc...

Now, think who the winner of the fight will be, I put my money on the rich level 90, personally. Did he win because of insane skills? Nope, just because he got very easy money off the ground... It's luck, so nothing can be done against it, but when you drop trade, you go against the normal order of things.

But it isn't the rich players fault the poor player is bad at the game. If you are poor, you shouldn't cwars/pk until you have better stuff, it is your own fault for going unprepared. The advantage the rich player had was that the other person is bad at the game, and you should always have an advantage over someone that is bad at the game.

There is only difference between getting it in luck as you described or drop trading is that you don't have to rely on luck to get rich. If it isn't unfair for the guy that found a party hat, it isn't unfair for a drop trader. The end result is the same, you get a lot of money for no work. Actually, at least the drop trader had to work for the money on his main instead of getting lucky.

Why would it be an advantage to get 100mil on my lvl 3 from drop trading as opposed to getting 100mil from merchanting on that lvl 3? The end result is the exact same, so the advantage can't be different. The end result is the only way you could possibly have an advantage, it doesn't matter how you get there. So what if I didn't work for it on the lvl 3, that is no advantage at all, all it did was stop me from needing to repeat what I just did even more.

I agree with whoever said that Jagex has that rule just so people play longer and pay more, not because of fairness.

2 pkers are fighting with the exact same equipment and stats. One worked for 100mil, the other got 100mil from a drop trade. Who has the advantage in that fight?

If people didn't suffer consequences for their bans, i.e. losing their items, how would the Runescape community react? Not very maturely, no doubt. In fact, to an extreme it could bring in-game chaos, with players breaking rules with no fear of losing any item of value, possibly resulting in the destroying ofany reputation Runescape still has left. Yah, don't think Jagex wants that.

Its called a lvl 3 throwaway account....
