(Bumping this up a bit)

It seems that what most people are complaining about is xp past 99. It would be better if, for example, if you prestiged with 50M xp, as soon as you hit lvl 99 on prestige 1, you would jump to 50M xp immediately. But if it required, for instance, 60M to reach 99, they would stay at 60M xp when they get 99.

Maybe remove the cash required to unprestige or be a small-ish number like 500K, add some cool Prestige Skill Capes and Prestige Max Cape if you get 99(s) again, and it's be a great update.


If skills are to go up to 120, exp rates will have to be as high as Dungeoneering, or at least 500k/h. That would mean 200 hours to 120 (100M xp), not that much considering the current xp rates of Agility and Divination.

Sure it was optional whether or not we wanted to prestige or not (btw, to everyone who keeps repeating that, I'm sure everyone understands that by now)...what wasn't optional was the fact that this Prestige Hiscores was now going to be our new Hiscores and our current ranking Hiscores was going to fall by the wayside as an "Old Hiscores". That to me IS NOT giving us an option.

And another thing, I don't think I'm being selfish and am glad I voted "No". I think it's kinda selfish when others think people should conform to another person's beliefs just because they think they believe they are absolutely right or entitled. We are all entitled to our opinion and to play the game the way we want to.

I'm also becoming increasingly annoyed at those calling the ones that vote "no" stupid, or ignorant.

I read the blog as soon as they posted it, I've given it thought over the past few days. At first I wanted it SO badly to be implemented. But then I sat down and thought of all the positives and negatives. I voted no because the negatives - for me and my friends - outweighed the positive. I've posted why I voted no, I also supported posts that furthered my opinion.

For you to call me stupid for taking an educated vote - that's rude.

You can switch back to 99 with a fee - pointless if you can simply switch back and forth.

Why would thousands of high levels want to go back and relive it? It's not going to be fun like it was before - this was my same argument with 07scape. It's not fun doing it again, without the friends you met along the way, and you're already seeing people come back to the live game. Instead you'll find grumpy, afking high levels at the low level spots, insulting and being cruel to the people that haven't already gotten to max skills before. This won't keep people wanting to come back.

Which brings me to the next comment, I know very well the GOOD things that would come out of this. However, there are thousands of other updates that would work better to fix the economy and bring in new players without effecting the current player base. The bad (which effect everyone) outweigh the good, in my opinion.

And yeh i read the post m8s


Apparently thousands do, as many thousands have voted yes. People like you are too selfish and voting no for absolutely poor reasons that hardly make sense. I highly doubt every high lvl is going to sit and insult new players, you have a horrible depressing outlook on life if you think that and I truly feel sorry for you.

And no, there aren't any other ideas that would bring back old content as easily as this would have. Especially none as optional as this one is.

I mean it's really hard not to see it as a bunch of whiners making up reasons to say no now. Maybe because saying the real reason they don't like it would make them sound selfish and possibly borderline OCD.

The more I hear people like this talk, the less I like this game as a whole. Maybe we should leave things as they are and let the game stagnate**** is mostly down to the hardcore rs ppl anyway. Most minigames and fun content is dead, just boring ppl grinding 200M's utilizing about 1% of the total game content lol.

Thanks Nattie, I'm glad I got through to at least one person.

I love seeing this game have a healthy future , and we cant make that by simply.. send away the new generations.

I voted no.

1. I believe the way high scores currently work is perfect just the way it is.

2. We really weren't informed enough about how resetting some levels may effect sirten aspects of the game. (More specifically; combat) Coulden't players neglect this by lowering some levels, in turn lowering their combat level to get an advantage over other players?

There's no problem with the high scores. Those who make it to the top first deserve to be there, even if they ground thousands of hours.


Well, why call it high scores and not first score? I love fixing the high scores because in this system prestiging is endless, theirs no end game was never meant to be. Everybody would be on the same turf with integrity increased by botwatch. (disclaimer: I know not everybody has botted but we also know a large amount did, so don't get butthurt)

You claim to know the passive benefits that this prestige would give but also say that the bad GREATLY outweighs the positive, which I don't recall you have mentioned?

Anyways, I can see why you're against this update simply if you don't think the high scores is broken:-P

Maybe because you can't list any real negatives. It's optional lol...you just want to preserve your ego and ruin things for the rest.
