OK this might sound radical but I think people should consider it. In my opinion the Grand Exchange should be removed from osrs. I played osrs since it came out and I feel like the introduction of the GE has greatly devalued my accomplishments before the GE. Made accomplishments after the GE just don't feel that interesting anymore for some reason.

A Gielinor without GE is what makes osrs fundamentally different from RS3. It makes the game more slow but interesting. It stimulates player interaction and makes items feel more valuable in general.

If you agree please reply and tell why!

This is just an assumption Cheng.

The poll for adding the Grand Exchange to OSRS closed on the 19th of January 2015, almost five years ago! The poll had a 76.3% yes vote.

Many things have changed since then. Maybe it is time for a new boost of nostalgia to the game? There are new voices going up supporting this idea. In the end osrs is about nostalgia for many.

Merching is easy enough even /with/ the GE. There's no reason to remove it. It would make everyone's life unnecessarily harder. Except if you like bartering/merching items for hours, which, admittedly, I do. But many do not.

How's making it harder for merch clans who break the rules unnecessary? Also, the majority also wanted to keep 6 hour afk. Should we have kept that too?
If slayer is a skill, then I guess these slayer drop tables catered to skillers by pumping out so many resources. :)

I really liked pre-GE OSRS too, but I have accepted that the majority of the players prefer the GE and it will stay that way. So it simply won't happen. Keep in mind though a lot of the traders in World 2 eventually were flip bots which messed up the experience.

Doesnt matter how close the poll was, the fact is, it still passed.

its been in game for years, its time for you to either accept it or make a ironman.
If it ain't broke, fix it till it is!

I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(
