In Jagex's most recent "Message About Unofficial Clients" I noticed this detail which actually rubbed me the wrong way, because forever now I've been wanting it back.

Any feature which: reorders or removes player-based options, such as ‘Trade with’ [Menus]

I remember back before EOC was a thing, players could hide the trade with option on other players by turning their Trade options (under chatbox) to off. In Oldschool, no such thing, ESPECIALLY with Ironman mode being so popular where literally any and every trade option is unnecessary clutter and serves as a reminder that "You stand alone", which we get... because we chose this life.

I think I speak for 99% of the Ironman community when I ask if this could be re-implemented as a genuine feature and not something 3pc's can pick up the slack on - not that RuneLite even had this feature afaik.

Reminder: this was an original feature before EOC was conceptualised, let alone Ironman mode.

Thanks for reading,

Guess I must be part of the 1% then because I never really notice/think about the trade options, why does it bother you? Anyone requesting updates to make ironman easier should be renamed wannabe-man and have their ironman icon replaced with a dunce hat.

It didn't bother me as much until now that Jagex have addressed it as potentially rule breaking to have player options removed, in particular "trade-with". Like I said, there used to be a toggle for that very same option back in the day just by turning trade options off, yet it's not ok for 3pc's to offer it nowadays. Nevermind the fact it's a useless option for any Ironman in general.

And trust me, even though you think you're in that special 1%, if Jagex allowed hiding trade options on players by turning trade off, you'd never turn your trade options back on again. (except maybe to start a duel for the hard clue step) ;)

Tbh that's probably true lol. Well, except the hard clue duel arena bit, I can't drop those fckers fast enough.

Mate, why would you drop that clue? rock up to w2 and ask anyone who teles in, or offer someone 50k at g.e to help u out for a minute!
Either way, thanks for understanding my point

I probably should do that, I used to get friends to do them with but I didn't like dragging them away from whatever they were doing for my shitty clue, and finding a rando just seemed like a lot of hastle lol.

No support just to spite ironmen since they're notorious for spiting PvP updates in this PvP-based MMO in case you have yet to read the mission statement decreed by Lord Gower himself and carried out by the JGods. If slayer is a skill, then I guess these slayer drop tables catered to skillers by pumping out so many resources. :)

The fault is with the 3pc. They continued to offer more and more deliberately unfair advantages to their subscribers. Jagex ignored this attitude for as long as they could, but the programmers got greedy and make things that gave such huge advantage jagex had to stomp down on it.

^^On a more serious note though, that's why I'm opposed to shit like this. People have just gotten far too entitled and need to remember what it was like to play the game right. If slayer is a skill, then I guess these slayer drop tables catered to skillers by pumping out so many resources. :)
