Speaking of attacking, I like your hostility, I see some of your skills may reach 30 mill XP, besides dungeoneering why are you concerned about any of your work being ruined?

But yes I'd be glad to read somebody elses post for the "heavy negatives"

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?


It belittles it in the sense that I wanted to get 200m EXP on the current HS system, the way I'm currently training skills. That system would not be relevant anymore with the implication of Prestige, therefore my gains would be irrelevant. I've already stated this before >****;....

The HS system isn't broken. For some reason Jagex has a mentality that you have to fix what isn't broken.

Robin Hoo d , I posted on page 52 a short version of what the negatives are.

I'd love to also add that when this prestige thing goes in, a lot of open possibilities will simply be impossible anymore, because they have implemented this system. What they offer here is a (bad) alternative to race to 200 million experience, resulting in a lot more redundant items flowing into the game , while gobbling up all the resources with the wealth a big portion of us high level players have obtained.

With a reset a lot of skills will generate a lot more garbage, and newcomers will be rewarded by handing in their resources , rather than having the satisfaction of delivering self-made products people actually will use.

If you'd continue in prestige to create new kinds of items that sinkholes others , like they intend to do with the new skill as well, like they did with summoning also, I see a brighter future than this silly alternative.

Again I prefer to see a positive community, rather than being in a list with people who achieved the same as you.

Thank you for re-stating.

I like the idea of prestige but I personally think that right now it is flawed. Once you, Jagex, figured out different routes to take - then I will vote on the right one. But right now, having a simple "Yes" or "No" vote is making indecisive individuals (like myself) completely lost.
Why not do a poll like you did on 07? Where you would say, "Would you like prestige to be added in game?" "What about the high scores?" "Should a limit be placed?" etc.
This update can't just be black and white. It's not that simple.

Also, don't hate on other people for having an opinion. If they feel an update affects them - they have every right to vote with how they feel personally. There is nothing selfish about that. Even the minority has a right to fight for updates that they want in the game they pay for and love.

Earning their ranks back? The ones that -won't- be affected at all? How are they going to lose them? Because they don't prestige and instantly have #1 yet again? That's not losing them- that's competition, and a fair one.

I've yet to hear a single interesting argument against Prestige that also can't apply to actual training regardless. Take for example, Divination, which for all intents and purposes, shouldn't have been released as is. It was no different than a skill from Classic, developmentally, and while the nostalgia-freaks (I may be one myself, but I don't let it bias me) should take note that it was in reference to the rate of experience gain that it was a harkening back to the old days- excusing away a complete lack of development, options, and advancements made in other basic gathering skills over the past decade is just a shameful attempt to disguise poor craftmanship.

Not to mention poor decisions within it, like making Mining juju potions completely useless because "porters are gonna do that.".

The HS and rank chasing arguments against Prestige are even less valid, in my eyes. I don't agree with hiding either one away, they should be separate, but equal, with emphasis on the differences between them. The claims that losing your rank because you didn't Prestige is absurd- You don't lose any experience or ranks made in the "Main" hi-scores or whatever you're going to call it, if you're the first person to 200m exp in a skill, that's it, it never changes. Just lifetime exp, and again, that is separate, but equal in that it is different but not sub-valued.

You don't need Prestige to advance, and as long as they do intelligently and avoid making it like CoD and any other game that has failed to carry it off by attaching tangible rewards, then why would it matter if you don't choose to use it? Do what you like.

ok, so you all do realise runescape is a GAME, for fun, for enjoyment, to play as a hobby or pastime?

Why are you all obsessed with getting to the top/ worried about how long it will take you to be the top again? What does that prove? That runescape scores is the be all and end all? That you have no life outside of rs?

Enjoy RS as it was meant, as a game - no winners, no losers, just fun to play
