I'll never understand why runescape players vote no on these type of things because they won't use it, or don't want to use it, or think it's like a different game.

Stop being selfish. Some of us were excited about this update! Uoure denying those that want it simply because you don't want to use the prestige system, or because it reminds you of CoDfish. That's 100% selfishness, and we allll know that if Jagex had named it anything else, there would be more votes in favor of it. prestige is in countless games, many of which vastly predate your fish shooter.

Grow up.

Sorry to break it to you but your view on this is selfish as well :/



How do you figure? I voted yes because it's something I'd like to see. I don't use the 07 servers, and never any intention to do so. But ya know what? I voted, because many players wanted it. If you're against prestige, then by all means. But voting no simply because you won't use it or because something else in some other game has the same name, like many players here have done, is selfish.

This will end up being an overwhelming "No" just because the majority of the games players are(were - most likely with this update) higher levels that have invested thousands of hours already. Most of them would probably die inside rather than reset all of their levels back to 1 again, just to get them back to 99 in 2 to 3 years time. I'm one of those people.


I see how this would be a great update, I've thought long and hard about it. But at the end of the day, Runescape isn't gaining new players anyway. I highly doubt this will bring new players, and I highly doubt it will keep low-medium level players in the game.

I like the idea of the system, I really do. But it's horribly unrealistic in the state that it's in - if it was to be improved and changed around (such as the new HS not being the "relevant" one until YEARS later, I would change my stance. But for now, I don't much like the idea of you simply saying "try again" when I've already spent over 600 days played on this game.

Cbf grinding another 3 years just to get to 2 Prestige when we already know the people that can no-life will just do it again for their high ranks. This won't open up new people to the HS really, the same people will just do what they do best. It's unhealthy competition.

TLDR: I voted no.



Ok, so don't do it. Problem solved. :/

Can't believe that so many players voted 'no' just because they wouldn't use the prestige system. I wouldn't use it myself, but come on! Why take away that opportunity from other players? You are never forced to reset your 99's back to level 1. And the maxed players get another opportunity to train those skills back to 99 without having to create another character. The egoism in a large part of the player base is absoluty pitiful. Ashaming even.

I am proud to vote 'yes' because i want this game to be good for everyone, not just myself!


This^

+1


Yep.


Agreed.


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


This is what I'm sayin, but apparently my logic is off and I'm selfish for thinking this way.


Lol. Leave it to the ones who won't use prestige to take from those that would. If it gets in, those of us that want it get it, and those that won't use it anyway just won't use it. On the other hand of it doesn't, those yes voters are screwed and it makes no difference to those that won't use it.

My logic is a bit off? I think not.

i 100% agree, it would be too similar to call of duty.... and those who have played call of duty know that its just a continuous cycle with very little reward. i think that 120 in all skills with an additional 120 cape for each skill would be more than enough motivation for people to put added work into their account, especially if they are maxed. then jagex can add new content through that and add more to do through each skill without having to add things that don't really fit into their current place/ level in the skill



This is the type of ignorance I'm talkin about. Prestige is not CoDfish exclusive, but has been in games that both pre-date and post-date this overdone shooter. Unfortunately ignorance usually wins here.

Meh. There's no point. You give them a valid reason, valid suggestions to fix it, to make the update more realistic and useful, and they still bash you.

I'm just going to assume you're all idiots, don't read what I've posted(and what other naysayers have posted), or are just trolls.

And for those that just don't understand the NO perspective, imagine playing for 10 years. Now imagine finally getting the a Completionist Cape. Then imagine planning on getting 200m's in the skills you love to train. Hold on a minute. Is that a div blog?

IS THAT DIV BLOG TELLING ME 200M'S WONT BE RELEVANT SOON?! OH BOY ITS MY TIME TO SHINE.

....Oh wait...I don't have 10 years to waste again :c.


I understand your point. I've been playin forever 10 years myself, though this account is newer (little over a year and a half). The thing is, with the way this incomplete update would supposedly be, you'll only be affected by it if you choose to be. Oh sure, other players might go beyond 200m exp in a skill. My question to you is this-how, exactly, does that belittle your accomplishment of reaching 200,000,000 exp in a skill?

Because they're sick, they feel the need they have to complete every little thing and be the highest score in every thing also. Then they want people to feel sorry about their condition even though there are far worse things some people have to deal with in life.

Just give them a shiny gold star and tell them they're special. Maybe give them all a number 1 spot on hiscores so they will feel better about themselves. Maybe then they can start thinking about whats good for the game as a whole, and not specific players such as themselves.


Well, that's just rude. I'd like to grab a comp cape of my own someday. Based on what Nattie has said so far, I don't think what you're talkin about is the case here.

Tell me about your 10 yrs. I will raise you 4 more. Only I choose to level the skills that I like. I could have had 200m xp in wc and thieving many times over. After all, I know someone who managed to get to 200m thieving xp in 2 months, yes you heard that right, 2 months. The xp rates in the game today are so laughably high, you really think that getting half those skills to 200mxp takes that long? Getting 99 wc in rsc takes way longer.

Instead, I have made additional characters and chose to grind up from 1 to 99 instead, because it is much more difficult than hanging around doing pp or cutting crystal trees. In fact, I have 3 accounts that have 99s. There really is no point in getting 200m xp, although with prestige you will still get it anyways, because right now, you will just be another number that did it.

There is absolutely nothing in this game that is remotely difficult anymore. Apparently thousands of people would like the chance to relevel their skills again, it saves us having to make more additional accounts that we will play for a while, get to 99, then forget about. Many maxed characters, including Kingduffy, have expressed that they like this idea.

---

Those gains are made through no-lifing and account sharing, something that is unrealistic to most players.


Let me stop you there. Are you claiming to have been playing runescape for 14 years? Sorry to call your bluff, but runescape has yet to reach its 13th anniversary.

Secondly, you're generaliZing. Not all players with huge amounts of exp account share, as you claim.

Finally, I've made new accounts over the years for various reasons. This is my third. First one was from 2003 and is retired in memory of a very close friend that passed away three years ago. The second one, from 2007, was retired after level three became level 4. This current account is the only one I have any 99s on. I'd love to do it again in Construction. It's my favorite.

No, the rsc beta started in 1999. Why do you think the beginning year for jagex's copyright is 1999?


I encourage you to do some research. Deviousmud was 1999 and was never released. Runescape, now called classic, was released to the public in 2001.

Officially released you mean. As a complete game w/ members. Its cute that you are trying to tell me that something that I personally lived is wrong lol. I can get an old of friend of mine, who also played back then, to come post about how wrong you are as well. But then, if you don't believe me about the copyright, which you need to have something released that someone can copy in the first place, I feel sad for you. After all, you probably weren't born yet at that point huh


I was alive and well back then. Runescape wasn't released to the public until 2001. Jagex holds the copyright based on when they began work on the gameand/or established themselves as a company, not when it was actually released. Go have a look at the copyright dates they have elsewhere.

I have a 10 year cape as well, so stop tryin to feed me your holier-than-thou veteran bs. I've got enough of it already.

I say start increasing the cap to 120. Hand out true mastery capes and provide extra content.

For example, smithing. It's a new age, which means new technology. We can already smith pieces of dragon metal together. Who says the dwarves won't discover the secret to smithing from dragon metal bars in this new age? Dragon items are already cheap, so it won't really be a matter of item crashes.
