"Optional"


Only the hiscore aspect of it is optional, you'll be affected by the prestige system whether you like it or not ingame.

More competition for low level spots; however, someone who's only prestige say slayer, will have superior stats to someone actually low leveled and would make it really hard for the lower leveled one to train slayer.
If you were level 50 combat and had to compete for slayer spots with a max player using Seismics, would you feel like slaying?

Prices for resources will rise where high levels having access to more moneymaking methods will again have a huge advantage. It'll also encourage bots to return in larger numbers.

The prestige system has its pros and cons, it's an interesting concept. I'm curious to see what solution Jagex will come up with taking both positive and negative feedback into consideration, if the vote doesn't pass.


You mean skilling might actually make money, and supply for certain items everyone flocks to because they're the only combat mobs worth anything might drop and so therefore be worth more than a nickel per?

Obviously we must vote no because that cannot be allowed. Only arbitrage clans can affect the prices of items in such a way!

As far as prestige itself... I'd only do skills I like. I don't care about ranks because they don't matter to me. I might look at them to see just how different I am from my clan mates or friends, but what people I don't know do is absolutely irrelevant and incites zero pressure, period, to do anything.

I also thank god for the fact it won't be grandfathering in anything, like 120 skills would, so that people who went to train other 99s instead of focusing on a skill they like and gaining absolutely nothing out of it don't suffer because of that and suddenly wind up being a tenth of the strength their buddies are because they kept on training.

Oh so now y'all finally decide to do Content Polls for the main game again, huh?

Talk about being quite a handful of past updates way too late.

*coughs* - Anyways, I voted yes because I always loved the idea of starting over back at level 1 all while being on the same account.

The only thing I liked about this concept:
"We hope there will be some other positive side effects on the game as well. At the moment, since only the highest level content is relevant to the most dedicated players, this skews the economy towards certain things and away from others. With Prestige, players will be competing at all skill levels making items and areas that haven’t been relevant for a long time suddenly of interest again."

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.

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!

I've been seeing a lot of "of course only the people without 99s want this"
but why is it "only the people with 99s don't want this.

I don't care about hiscores. It seems only the high leveled players are the ones that DO care about hiscores. I've never cared. In fact, there was a maxed player telling me yesterday that I was too "crappy" at this game and I should just quit.

You guys (not pointing fingers at anyone, just going by what people have said) are rejecting this idea just because you want to "stay on top" and not have to work anymore for it.

True hiscores don't have an end.

For those concerned about their place in high scores. News flash.

I might be an above average player, in being 99 in all skills, but I only know about suomi and zezima because of all the fangirls that mention them in game.

I can not tell you who is ranked 2 to 10, let alone any even below that in rankings. If I only know of Suomi from others in game and don't know what rank you are when you got or will get 200mil in a skill, what do you think about the other 30k players.

Your high scores rank means nothing except to brag about it in game or on forums, and I and the rest of the players could care less about your rank and won't be searching for it in the high scores when you brag about your rank.

Worse poll ever!

You (Jagex) knows that people who don't like something are going to complain more than people who like something are going to rejoice. You know its a great update but you are still expecting 75% of the people to agree with you and actually take the time to vote. It isn't going to happen. Worse poll ever!

Why why why say no to this!? Its optional to prestige, its optional to prestige, its optional to prestige. It also doesn't effect the current high scores system, It also doesn't effect the current high scores system, It also doesn't effect the current high scores system. Its a completly different highscores system. Its a completly different highscores system. Its a completly different highscores system.

Yes i am repeating myself cause maybe if i'm one of the few praising it as much as the idiots who complain about it then maybe you will hear me. I'm not even taking into account the fact that low lvl players and high lvl players will be able to train side by side once again. Making the game more interesting for those who are lower lvls. Plus it will make the game a little harder to get resources. Because we all know "this game is too easy."

Gah Jagex, i never thought you could be so stupid. You have to know that if you make this system go into effect that the majority of the people who complain about it are going to prestige. THERE IS NO PROBLEMS WITH THIS UPDATE!!!
