Note: I haven't gotten a 200m yet but I can see myself playing to that point so I'm just throwing a suggestion out and I honestly like what rs3 has become so I have no plan to go to osrs

I feel this game has lost it's competitive feel compared to when I was playing in 08-12, I used to always check the hiscores everyday and see where all the top players were at aswell as check where I was at compared to everyone else at my level. Now every skill has over 1000 people cap 200m reaching that point where you get a 200m you would still be down the list.
We even have over 300+ people at max xp cap.

Imagine if you were at that point where you capped all levels to 200m and you can do nothing else but cap the achievements for trimmed completionist (if haven't done so already) but you still have that edge to grind exp?

My proposition is to increase the level cap to 500m once a new skill comes out, and give the players a new item once 500m is reached to show off the achievement, I believe it would bring the competition back. I understand there are people who would disagree with this because it would mean gaining 1.5x the experience for each skill to reach the experience cap as well as the top players losing their spots but we are playing an mmo and a great one at that but even if we gained player votes to see if we wanted change or experimented with the new skill first. It's just an idea and I would love feedback!

It takes long enough already. I’m just in my twenties and I would like to get maxed before I die.

Good thing this suggestion would have no effect on you.


Yes it would. I've been playing for more than ten years and only have 1 level 99, let alone 200m in a skill.

most of my 200ms took roughly 3 months of grinding. they really arent that difficult. i work full time etc so its not like i spend 18 hours a day on. some days i cant even play.

even though im at this point right now. id rather it not go past 200m. 200m is iconic ending stage in the skill. changing this would remove what the highest of the high is (i know thats the point) but no.


if this was to go ahead id stop playing. and keep myself at 5,400,000,000 xp

but thats me there are 548 other people in this situation. which possibly differ to mine
200m all on 7/3/19

Cheers for the feedback guys!
It would change the game entirely but there are pro's and con's to everything, as I said if there was a vote or something and the community as a whole could decide if it's wanted or not, plus the experience rates are doubled to what they use to be so it'd only add more in a sense

So it won't affect you then, since you're not aiming to get 200m all f2p skills. You only said you were going to get max.

Something similar has been voted on already, prestige skills (reset level to 1), it didn't go too well. I feel like people would have similar reactions to your suggestion.

Yeah but prestige did suck tbh haha, there's no prestige in a bigger xp cap but it does consume more time and I do get that if you worked your way up to 200m everything and then they increased the cap it would be a kick in the guts, but hey, if numbers come up after rs3 mobile drops and our community gets bigger it could always be a possibility but the outcome would be unknown at this point in time

The day that this comes out exceeding the 200m XP cap will be revolutionary for runescape, i for one would start grinding the XP again!

But this is a pipe dream, its been like this since the prestige idea was imposed, yet failed by voters (bet half of those voters aren't even playing runescape now).

Besides if jagex does decide to increase the XP caps, you would get whinging players who haven't even achieved the 200m mark, and loyal players who have managed to achieve 200m would then whinge as they would have to gain more XP for ''world high score ranks'' ~reminds me of Destiny players this, cant win lol

Could use personal XP after 200m to counter the moaning players, make it so it wont show on high score.

Would this affect the player base?
Would it bring back the old Players?
Would it increase sales on Keys/ MTX's? (i mean come on, if people still moan now in 2019 about the way games run on MTX's now, lol seriously most Triple A titles use MTXs)
