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.
Given that the two modes are going to be quite obviously distinct, I don't think it will cheapen ironman to a significant extent. And even if it does in the minds of some, who cares?
Anyone requesting updates to make ironman easier should be renamed wannabe-man and have their ironman icon replaced with a dunce hat.

Spider Man and Spider Clones are quite different. So are real diamonds and imitation diamonds. Who cares? I'll leave the question to everyone. :)

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.


Well, OSRS is already tailor-making content for GIM. Mod Ash wrote on twitter GIM will get their own shop stocks. Be prepared to see GIM asking for more and more exclusive content tailor-made for them... like may even be their own servers. This is going to take away a lot of OSRS development time from regular players (anybody notice this is a no-update week just completely designated to the development of GIM?), let alone unfair advantages over regular players.
