I've had this idea in my head for quite a while now and as a frequent player of Tetris 99 and Pacman 99 on the switch (as well as the occasional Fortnite match) I thought... what if Runescape had some kind of Battle Royale minigame (deaths would be safe and players could either bring their own supplies or choose supplies to have given to them, up to Jagex on that one)

As an example, to do a Fight Caves Battle royale, you'd right click the Fight Caves and instead of going in normally you click an option for Battle Royale then you'd be paired up with other players who have also right clicked the Caves to choose the same option, then you'd all be thrown in to the Fight Caves (maybe not doing all waves from 1 to 63 as it'd be too long to get to powerful monsters, I was thinking maybe there are 16 or so waves, including 63, that a player can vote for, any wave that is voted for will show up at some point, the order that all players go through the Fight Caves waves would then be predetermined before the Royale Starts.

How would it work? Well everytime you kill a Fight Caves monster, it would be sent over and spawned into whatever wave another player is in, targeting options (of who you will send monsters that you kill over to) would be "player with the most supplies left", "player with the least hp", "Attackers" (would send an enemy to everyone who has you targeted) and Random, as well as an option to manually target any player (each player's screen, just of their avatar and monsters around them, would be visible to you).

This could work for other areas as well as Fight Caves, imagine a Battle Royale of Godwars (maybe an NPC at godwars entrance could send interested players to an GWD instance where the Royale takes place), the fun of sending Kree'aras to another player

I'd be interested to hear other player's thoughts/ideas to add to this :)

Kopaka had a good idea on page 1 post 5

Perhaps having a designated Battle Royale world, in addition to making them Limited Time events with there being a few a year (so exactly like dxp) would increase popularity, with ingame notification on the first log in after the update is announced/made live to remind players.

In terms of whether or not the idea will be a flash in the pan and abadondoned in a month or two, the only way to find out if that's the case is to see how it goes once the Royale is ingame :)

I've wanted to marry RuneScape's IP to other formats, like Battle Royale, Moba, RTS, tower defence...

I think there are some exceptionally well designed aspects of RuneScape which would translate well into other types of games: the combat triangle, armour/weapon tiers, special attacks, RuneScape's gods, RuneScape's cities, some iconic RuneScape quests...

But to me I'd want to see it as a stand alone game, not just another dead minigame. Why? Well I think a large portion of the RuneScape playerbase just isn't interested in these types of ideas, so putting them inside the main game is wasted on them, but additionally there is a substantial disdain for RuneScape from gamers outside of RuneScape who might be willing to try a different game just based on RuneScape's IP.

How do I imagine a RuneScape BR?

Players start randomly spread out across a simplified Gielinor. They have a bronze sword and wooden shield to start. They run around fighting other players, collecting materials to make armour and weapons, and opening hidden chests to find armour and weapons. There are no levels, or everyone is just max level. Hostile creatures close in from the edges of the map, with warnings to the player of their approach. If they reach you, you can fight back but inevitably you'll get killed by the NPC armies just like the gas or storm in other BRs.

Some significant differences to normal RuneScape: smaller inventory (maybe 5 slots), dedicated resource slots(like fortnite) for generic 'metal', 'leather' and 'cloth', universal crafting locations for making gear instead of anvils/tanners/looms, no accuracy penalty for weapon/armour mismatch or automatic armour switching to match weapon switching...


Yeah that could work very well!

It sounds like Last man standing in Oldschool RuneScape, but the difference between the two games are that Rs3 has a dead minigame community, with that said, minigames in RuneScape 3 is kinda outdated and since we've had the Thaler system, you can basically get Void (which isn't good anymore compared to other setups) through other minigames. Therefore I do belive that this update would be no more than waste of time developing.


With best regards,

Well, what about some ingame tool for players to create content/games to some degree (Mario Maker pulled it off) There'd have to be limitations on rewards for balancing but imagine making something cool and other players being able to play it right away.

A battle royal mode, as well as an in game tool for player created content have been suggested so many times I’ve lost count. For whatever reason the devs seem reluctant to try these things out.

Tetris 99 / Mario35 is a new spin on things however, maybe flesh that idea out & good luck.


Yeah :) they've even got a Pacman 99 now which has been a lot of fun

No support, a rework of current mini games needs to happen first.


Surely both would make more sense ;) Rework then Royale? Or other way round I don't mind
