Absolutely sick and appalled that GIM passed the poll... This game has truly hit a new low. IRONMAN mode is about STANDING ALONE not in a group of 4 alts... This is just altman mode even more OP than summoning at this point.... This game has truly lost its integrity. Consider not releasing GIM anyway. All these casual players are just going to quit after a week anyway when they can't afford addy armor.

Tired of altscape. Tired of ironman modes. Keep it up and I'll see myself out the door.

I don't see why OSRS will not release GIM. They have even put GIM codes in the live game before the poll ended, regardless it is a bug. ;)

Regardless how you feel about GIM and the poll, it is going to come.

So causal players won't last, for sure, but from OSRS's perspective it doesn't hurt them. It is like the 117HD graphics saga and the controversial DMM eventsape, sightseers come and go in a hurry when they find there is really no fundamental changes at all in the grindfest game.

From the players' perspective, different stakeholders may see different effects though. We will see if future OSRS updates will be tailormade for GIM or just ironman. We will also see if the macroeconomy will be affected if the free trade player driven economy will be negatively affected by self-leeching ironman groups.

Sure it's going to be baby ironman mode, and I won't be playing it myself, but I don't understand being opposed to it for those reasons. If people want to play GIM, why not let them? And if they all get bored and go back to their mains because it turns out ironman isn't for them, so what? Anyone requesting updates to make ironman easier should be renamed wannabe-man and have their ironman icon replaced with a dunce hat.

From what I can tell, I don't see any way GIM will negatively affect me or how I play the game. So, I have nothing but support for the game mode. If people want to play it as a self-contained alt-scape gamemode, so what?

If you are fine with your friends or clanmates who used to level and share goodies with you going to group with ironmen and you have no problem switching to solo gameplay then it may not be a big issue.

Warding wouldn't have negatively affected how you played the game as long as other people have fun with it. However many probably you included voted no to it yet cry we have no new skills. Well now I don't want new game modes. I'm tired of altscape and ironscape.

I wasn't even active on OSRS when warding was proposed and voted on. So I don't know anything about it.

The issue is GIM cheapens the efforts and impression the others on regular ironman as a whole. It is like 9,000 Spider Clones will make most people think David Parker is just an ordinary person in a jester costume.
