Still hoping for fresh servers. Same game as RS3 but these groups of servers would be fresh. Everyone starts at 0 if you decide to play on the special set of servers set aside for this. Could even do seasonal or yearly servers. Only way I can see players coming into the game is if you give them a starting point. 20 year old hiscores is not an invitation to new players to start playing or old players to come back. The prime of Runescape was when there were still hiscores to win xp to gain gold to make. Now everyone has gold hiscores are filled to capacity and getting those rare items from that new monster you can now slay is worth 50k because they have been farmed for 10 years plus.

It literally would require no extra work after the initial setup. Updates the same as RS3 now. basically just like deadman mode or darkscape was but it is just a normal server. Plenty of servers now days that have 100/2000 players on it anyways.

I can not see any down side to this. The games as they are now stay completely unchanged but these servers would make everyone who would want to play on them create a new account.

This would almost be like ironman. It would bring old and new players to the game.

Kiplaar,

No Support becuse just to get account to a level to do activities would take months. (You have quests leveling and skills to make on bosses to enter). allot of people will not make them levels for over 1 yr to 7 months unless your hardcore gamer and it would take 4 months I would think to be at a alright level.

We would also be splitting the community up if we did this and that be a downside.
- This is the very reason people freak out when I bring up RuneScape on Xbox. You have to look at your idea and think of the good and bad. You've just thought of what you want without any thought put in to your idea.....

You should read the Jmod post and not just post without thinking of your ideas.
What is the upside to this idea - What is the down side to this idea..... Their is way more downside than up and that does not make a worth posting on forums suggestion. Unlike my idea their is more upsides than down but yours is just plan bad. You did not even take the normal player into count....

Why not say Fresh servers where only none tradable accounts can access the worlds.. This idea is just as bad. I think you got my point. Unlike iron man, people can still play with them. Your just confusing how the game is meant to be played and trying to change the whole layout of the game idea.

Support on the idea behind this, but it'd need to be executed more thoroughly than this. For example:

1. MTX would need to be removed from the fresh servers, otherwise you could e.g. spin to win hiscores and they'd become irrelevant again quickly.

2. Dailyscape and the temporary event spam should be omitted from the fresh servers, since they, too, have contributed a lot to the powercreep without providing anything of real value to the game. Dxp weekends for example allow you to get 200m summoning for half the time and cost in just one weekend alone.

3. The game would need some general rebalancing, e.g. lowering early and endgame exp rates so that content isn't rushed, and making certain pushover slayer monsters more difficult to kill so that they aren't farmed like crazy and to death.

Blackwing,

Read the thread, you made a great post over none topic.
- Your not going to get 200M Experience in 1 yr Summoning, you not going to get allot of players to come to the game wanting to make new accounts all a time its not like D3. Where accounts can be maxed out in a week. You going to have more dead content than their is already.

He said - "Seasonal (90 DAYS ) or Yearly (1 YEAR) Servers."
Read the thread other than posting on something you have no clue what your saying other than repeating other peoples dislikes. (If you have seasonal or yearly it means the account is put in a none seasonal or deleted). This also means EXP will have to be boosted since the account will not matter at that point and it be a trash account, if they do the deleting so why would exp matter?

No one will want to make account like this and if you did you have to be CRAZY. Since the whole time doing it will be a total waste.

Yea I don't see either of these happening for obvious reasons.
