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.

"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.


The ones who benefit most are are new/low level players + the high level ones who dont participate in prestiging much.

New/lower-levels will actually see the low/mid-level resources they create/collect go up in value because prestigers will need them constantly. Sure a few things might be more expensive for them to buy, but they will be able to make far more gp than ever due to the increased demand from prestigers looking for fast exp rates. And there are tons of worlds now, direct competition will not be much of an issue.

Higher levels who dont prestige at all, or not very much...they will see less competition at good spots and also will see much of their resources go up in value once prestigers start going up in levels. The increased gp that can be made will offset any other higher prices for certain materials.

So for new players and those who wont plan on doing much prestige, the update is a huge advantage.

And lets not forget about the fun, creative stuff that will become available. Like resetting combat only lol

I believe Runescape needs this update.
I have personally tried to get new people to play the game.
Yet no one wants to join when every other player is combat level 160 or higher.
And why make a grandmaster quest that unlocks dragon equipment?
When its useless for the only players that can use it.

Level up, unlock what you can, then do it over with rare equipment haha
VOTE YES -Bring the green

Well, if those 'many players wanted it' then they should be voting "yes."

This poll is a personal, selfish thing - you're voting for yourself. You don't represent anyone but yourself, since you're just ONE vote. This goes for the "NO" votes too.

Your logic is a bit off.

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 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. :/

There's people who are only voting no because "they won't use it" these people should not vote instead of skewing the results.

If you vote no because you don't like it, then go ahead.

But if you're simply voting no to vote no...you probably shouldn't be voting at all < that's their logic.

Did you even read the update? You can set it back to 99 if you need. Its completely optional.

The fun is in getting there, not sitting on your 99's and acting above everyone else.

And if you're too short-sighted to not see how it helps new players...then stop grinding and think a little. They have nobody to play/train with + low level economy is horrible atm. It's nearly all high levels doing a small part of the entire content in the game...aka the high level content. The majority of the game sits dead and dormant...how would that look to a new player who has to go through that?

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.
