Do any of the f2p high score sites hold f2p highscores for old school servers aswell or plan to in the future?

First of all: This is surely a hot topic, 20 posts for a topic that was started two days ago...Impressive.
There's a lot of people here expressing that "There's no good reason not to vote. That's just to destroy for us who wants 2007Scape. It won't affect you guys who likes EoC and play the modern version." Now, this is just pure wrong. I won't vote for this. I want the resources to go towards the main game. I want Jagex to move Runescape forwards instead of backwards. Certainly these servers will be popular for some time, but not for long, I believe. This since what many people want back is not actually the game with all its feautures, but the 2007Scape community. Which sadly won't come back just because Jagex restores a backup from 2007.
This won't get my vote. Call me a destroyer if you so wish, but this is my opinion. And unless someone comes up with some really good reason, it won't change.


that's totally fine bro, but we will keep supporting EOC anyway because there's a chance we might one day go back and afterall, EOC or 2007scape, we are one community and should be lookin out for eachother. Don't forget that every single voter will have paid a month of membership fee directly to EOC's budget just for a chance to play the game they enjoy.

You have to realize that these new 2007 servers will be at least 10x more popular than 06scape was.

If you're a member, please just "vote" for this. There's no good reason not to.


Yes please vote for this. While you may not want to play it, many others do. It can't hurt you to vote for it.


Most of the EOC Players are scared that if the poll hits 500k+ then jagex would take EOC's budget and put it to 2007 which is not the case, the more votes the poll gets the more likely it is for the game to get its' own developing and support team so EOC could go on full throttle, otherwise they would just half-ass both games. They'll realize eventually, probly after the poll is closed tho lul

No, what I want is for Jagex to stop being so goddam safe with everything. Just like when you go out to drive your car to the grocery store, you're taking the chance that you'll be hit by another car and killed, but the benefits of that car trip outweigh the risks.

Jagex, they are terrified of that car trip. In fact, they don't even own a car. Jagex is like the grandma who's locked herself in her own house, removed all the furniture, sanded down all sharp corners, tied herself to the only remaining chair, and calls her son every couple of days to personally deliver her some cold, bland chicken broth that he spoonfeeds her with his own hands (because she could choke on the spoon).

Jagex used to take risks. And risks come with losses (glitches), I realize. Sometimes even huge, game changing glitches. But those glitches are rare. They don't happen all that often. The benefits outweigh the risks. Nowadays, they lock themselves in their office and only release updates that appeal to the lowest common demoninator, AKA children who Jagex thinks they have to protect with their children-like themes.


Implementing EoC was the biggest risk they have ever taken. With it have come some huge glitches.
And lo and behold, it's turned out to be possibly the best risk they've ever taken.


I believe the squeal of fortune was the best risk they've taken

I still dont understand why people dont help make Jagex stronger in the long run by voting. Because people played the game for RuneScape not EoC. It was wrong for jagex to impliment such a game changing update. This will compensate very little to what we have lost. its not like updates are coming out any slower or any less quality. And its not like you're loosing any money either. Its adding more freedom and more variety to RuneScape. Lack of content is not what will make it interesting its the fact we will have the great features than made runescape a strong community and game. Meaning GE-less and EoCless. Theses updates are the main things that impacted Runescape to a level that it dont even break 100k online anymore. Which is quite poorly. As for server space. theres plenty. Jagex should remove like 20 + anyone simply because most of them are basicaly dead anyway.

However tomorrow is judgement day to see how things are going! Im sure we will get servers at around 5$ min.


My reason for not voting is that I don't believe EoC was a step in the wrong direction. However, dividing the game/community in two is.
Obviously the existence of 07 servers will generate jagex more money in the short term. However if it ends up failing and the players on it quit (a proportion of which may have come around to eoc given time) then they'll end up losing out.


Many of the people who want to play this game haven't played the main game for years and do you really think that everyone is so obsessed with runescape that if they dislike eoc they will stick around? i think this change was so drastic that it was a no brainer to a lot of people to just move to private servers or other games. That's why you see only 40,000-50,000 people online at certain time of the day. You cant keep players in a cage, eventually they'll break out and realize that there are still thousands of Non-eoc runescape servers that people are developing every day. Jagex finally realized this and they know they cant put a stop to all of them, so they would rather beat them by making a superior product.Some people are mislead and think that a few people whining on the RS official forums made this happen, but in reality it was mostly the numbers that visit private servers every day + the poll by some youtuber that started all this madness.


A lot of us believe that 2006scape was made by Jagex. It was a private server that had over 200,000 registered accounts, before it was shut down. That's like 70-80k individuals. Jagex really did their homework on this.


not sure if trolling about jagex making it, but they hit 100k individuals a long time before they had to close. That's not even gonna say much, that was just 1 of the thousands of servers out there
