I've played this game from 2001 all the way up to a month after eoc, paying membership on multiple accounts. I've seen the game shape and change and been apart of turning it into what some of you so much enjoy to this day. I stopped playing because the runescape I logged into was no longer a runescape I enjoyed.
I personally am willing to pay 20+ a month to play these new servers, however, if jagex doesn't release them as a minimum of 5 extra I won't bother coming back to play them. Charging anymore than that will be a cash grab because they would be bringing back a game with no chance at sustainability.
There is a decent sized community that wants to see this happen, however, new blood is the lifeline of this industry and without it being cheap for new people to try out 07scape, the game has a short life expectancy. IMO even the eoc community should be in support of these servers returning at a decent price, even if they aren't profitable from the get go they have the potential to bring back many old members. Income generated will go to the live game not 07scape.... Give those of us who shaped the game you are still in love with a chance to rebuild a new runescape with a game engine we enjoy more for both of our benefits.
All of this animosity towards the separate groups is sickening, a sustainable 07scape is more money for the live game. Jagex is a business, if they operate at a loss for a few months they will scrap the project or raise the price to compensate... Simple as that. This poll is nothing more than an attention grabber, if they really plan their business models based on some random poll I'd be much more worried about runescapes future.
