Maybe making the entire game F2P to begin with might be too drastic of a step. But I could see huge F2P expansions helping the overall health of the game. I'd argue that releasing the entire Kharidian desert (minus Menaphos), all of Kandarin, Troll Country, Feldip Hills, and Elf Land (minus Priffindas) and the rest of the Karamjan island F2P would be an expansion that would drastically add to the lifespan of RS3. This would keep Rellekka and Fremennik land P2P, Elf City P2P, Menaphos P2P, all of Morytania P2P, the Arc and player-owned-ports still P2P, Pirate islands P2P, Ape Atoll P2P, and a few other areas. In addition, release all of the primary content of those areas to F2P, with selective experiences kept members.

Essentially, I suggest tipping the game from 70% members, 30% f2p to closer to 20% members, 80% f2p. With this change, I also suggest a 25% decrease in membership prices, but an increase in MTX opportunities, especially for F2P players.

I think this change, while radical, will still keep the "large, new, fresh, exciting" areas released as Members-only while giving F2P large chunks of the game that adds dozens of hours of content for a new generation of players to play.

See, the response given earlier in this thread is the key - many of us started playing when we were kids. Kids are usually broke (as I was at the time) so migrate to free experiences and often "slide" into the experience with MTX. That's why games like Fortnite are so popular. A new generation of players (kids) have found Fortnite and embraced it. What we need is for a new generation to embrace RS3, and for that to happen, large amounts of fresh content should be available to them. Members are letting 80% of the game go unplayed now, so it makes no sense to keep the majority of the game P2P when untapped revenue exists in F2P realms.

I know many will disagree with this, but something like this HAS to happen. Something like this eventually WILL happen. Like it or not.

I agree with that, it also wouldn't hurt to make Members Minigames also F2P , For Example, Soul Wars is a dead mini-game, it is nice to play whenever you feel like not wait for double rewards bonus points day so you could play.

Hm bots... That's already a reason for me to not support it.
Sure you can update the current bot-system, but given from the past, people that make scripts outsmart their system.

Plus most bots gets banned after a period of time, which is enough time for the bots to spend their cash, dump their supplies in the G.E, filling up the G.E, which affects us.

There's now this nice money wall preventing most scripters to even try. I rather have this.

& for most players, even for starters, it is quite easy to get a bond.
Try using invention machines and daily runs (i'm sure there are guides) to maintain your membership. Doesn't even take that long.

Those of you staunchly opposed to it, you might as well grow to accept it. It's going to happen at some point. It has to if the game is to survive. It's not a "suggestion", it's a mandate. sTReTCh1028
