It is my belief that ironmen should have there own server. For the purpose of upholding the tradition that is old school Runescape and to provide longevity to the community. Ironmen are accounts that must doing everything for themselves. What better way to ensure this than by grouping them all together on the same server. It is the truest form of Runescape and it is my foremost contention that playing on an ironman server would be more popular if these accounts were separated entirely. The game would be played in a more simple fashion. There would be no grand exchange, no trading, and more opportunity to provide ultimate and hardcore ironmen safety against pvp combat. Real world trading would be nearly impossible, and botting accounts would be more recognizable allowing moderators to take a pro-active stance against illegal game play. It would be fair and clean. It is my understanding that this is how Runescape should be played.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post, good luck to you all on your Runescape journey.

Instead of making iroman only server, why not just remove ironman from OSRS and make a new game of Ironmansape?

You are talking about putting 2 different games with 2 different sets of rules and programming mutually exclusive to each other in the same game.

No support.

This is a MMO thus you have to deal with others besides just IM.

Plus none of the otehr special acc types get their own server so why should IM get special treatment?

Heck, no one gets a special server not even VIPs so theres no reason why these things should be introduced.

I don't understand the objection? If ironmen only servers were released initially, there would be no other reality. In fact, I dont understand the importance of having them integrated with other players/bots/and irl gold traders. It only clouds the truest form of game play that is being an iron man.

While I understand this is a MMO, the iron man is a different style of game play, yes. It is special because it outlines the purity that is Runescape, skilling and acquiring, items and levels to further gameplay without outside intervention. There is no support because most do not want to play fair. As this is just a discussion based topic, I am open to hearing others opinions. However, the reasons stated above don't sway my opinion from believing iron men should be in a separate server.

There is no distinction between VIP's and regular players or even bots because there is no difference in the accounts they play. It would be biased to assume others could have access to a private server for just paying money or being a person of importance. What I am suggesting is entirely different in that everyone, like OSRS, would have access to the game and the server. One would have to play as an Ironman though.

All in all its the same game. If no one likes this idea I understand. I do think that this could provide another suitable option for players of the sort. I do not personally play ironman, but I would start if a dedicated server was created to adhere to those specific accounts.

Play fair?

How is getting your own server playing fair?

Also, IM is just as "different" as a pure is and yet they dont have their own server and never should as well.

So this isnt about "playing fair" as this would actually be "unfair" as youd be getting something no one else has.

I'll be playing group ironman the second it's released. Wanted to start that to put my comment in context.

An ironman only server would not be a good idea. While the idea of having no PKers in the wildy is very tempting, it's OP considering the chaos altar is going to be a very popular destination for all of these new accounts not to mention the rev caves or other content.

Griefers, crashers and people who one tag bosses to ruin your kill are annoying, but creating a dedicated iron man server isn't the right answer to solve that.

Yes, there is a big difference, and you have it on your own sentence I quoted. Ironmen aren't VIP and don't deserve specific VIP kinds of servers just for them.
