When Group Ironman gets released and one person leaves the group, would they get reverted to a regular ironman or a regular account? I'd like some clarification to this otherwise unanswered question. Aside from that, excellent concept to promote player interaction throughout this wonderful community! :) If slayer is a skill, then I guess these slayer drop tables catered to skillers by pumping out so many resources. :)

No they will not. The reason is a player could use group ironman to get items quickly and efficiently and then get kicked and become a regular ironman gaining huge advantages in the game mode.

I'm not entirely too sure what they will do with players being kicked from a group but I would assume something will be decided.

Good question though. :)

They'd still be group ironmen, just without a group, assuming they aren't reverted to normal accounts.

They can't be ironmen, as they'd have items from other players.

Group ironmen would be a lower "tier" than ironmen.

Maybe they'd be able to join a new group, but it would still allow them to transfer items from one group to another. There would have to be some kind of item wipe penalty to make it fair.

They covered this on the last Q&A. Say you get kicked from a 4-man group, you will still be a 4-man GIM with the blue GIM emblem and on the 4-man GIM highscores, and the only way you can refill your group will be with brand new level 3 GIMs.

Like Miu said, they basically laid it out in tiers of difficulty: IM>GIM2>GIM3>GIM4>GIM5, and you will be able to go down in difficulty by adding new level 3 accounts to your group if you want, but you will never be able to go back up in difficulty as it would provide an unfair advantage.
We must smash the iron ceiling and end the oppressive maintriarchy.

Thanks! A mod can lock this thread now. :) I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

Promoting player interaction by forcing the voluntarily solo gamers to work together?

Seems pretty backwards to me...If you want player interaction, why aren't you Playing a normal character? GIM mode will never cease to amaze me with how dumb it is.
Give us vanilla OSRS servers updated since we get bad updates like Group Altman mode

I mean the original intention was to encourage solo gameplay, but it's devolved into a way to revive pre-GE gameplay except for the player interaction aspect. This will encourage player interaction as well as the style of gameplay it's intended to. Alternatively, we could just delete the GE and give no one any special treatment since everyone would be playing like ironmen as they're meant to.

They should've just released vanilla osrs without the ge then people could "GIM" all they wanted, I dare say a vanilla server would be more popular.

We do not need group solo man mode.
