So far could only find few flaws in the base game the F2p side of this game. I feel still there is lack in keeping up to date on the f2p aspect of this game more less focusing on the p2p side. which i completely understand. i still think a few things from the p2p part should be released to the f2p side of the game for example the lack of interest in non mem items theres really not much to work with especially pvp side of it. i just think a few items from the p2p side need to be thrown down to the f2p side. (bare with me im not good at forums)


-yew short and long bow (you can cut yews why not be able to buy yew bows).

-iron boots, steel boots, etc to adamant boots. (kinda ded content on p2p side feel f2p would use these items instead of leather boots......)

-Ava's attractor (animal magnitism) i feel like the lower tier avas should be accessed f2p and not the accumulator just the first one since its pretty much useless after you get your accumulator and higher.

-back in the day they had corrupted weapons for pvp in the f2p aspect of this game and i feel as if something similar should be brought back or something new in that area for f2p pvp would be great.

-the mage aspect of f2p is honestly crap tier there is no armour for a high lvl mage in f2p so you have no mage bonuses practically. there should be gear thats dropped by the ogre shaman or something that has mage bonuses.

-a skill from p2p side added to the f2p side for some kinda money making or something to do other than all the basics and i feel like the skill should be fletching that would be the most useful skill to have in f2p.

probably asking for to much but ya know gotta show some love for the F2P side of this game we all love and enjoy this game why not equal out some of it.

I realize that this will most likely never happen since Jagex has zero incentive to maintain their F2P playerbase. However it is possible for them (I hope a dev or something would genuinely consider this, let alone read this) to maintain a F2P playerbase without even creating new content. The P2P side already has a vastly disproportional advantage regarding content and receives new content at a vastly generous rate. F2P players however barely even get empty platitudes. The F2P playerbase, a potential means for future profit, might be more inclined to open their wallets if they had a reasonable and regularly available taste of what members have had for several years. I have no issue with members receiving new content. At the same time a slow (emphasis on slow for the F2P playerbase) expansion of the freely accessible area into older member areas in close proximity to the current F2P area, some F2P skills that can be used in those areas as well as a few member-only items. I'm sure there would be certain restrictions placed on such an idea, especially with regards to how far such an expansion would go and that is completely reasonable. I don't expect Jagex to completely disregard their bottom line just to placate us lowly F2P players. Consider it an investment. Something new (to us) to wet the F2P players' whistles. All of this requiring little thought and literally zero new content.

I'm sure this would probably receive a lot of criticism, trolling even, but this idea is not unreasonable. So please keep your comments to constructive criticism or suggestions. Perhaps statements of support too. :P

Our apologies for being poor. Clearly we are subhuman scum undeserving of a decent gaming experience. >_>

You say that as if not throwing money at the game is some kind of mistake or perversion. The elitism involved...wow.

The entire purpose of having a lot of better things in p2p is to encourage people to become members. F2p is basically a demo and it is intended to give you a taste, but it is not meant to be so good that you would not want to be a member. In f2p you can get the money to buy bonds and become members. IF you can not maintain the membership, you go back to f2p where again you can earn the money. Just remember to sell off items that are members only before your membership ends.

Experience has proven this is NOT the case. The more you give f2p, esp. if they believe it will happen frequently and regularly, the more they demand be made free.

Weren't you just crying about how it's impossible to afford bonds now unless you're a combat pure? 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. :(

Also, the only place where that second ounce of logic applies is with the overly entitled skilling community. The more shit you give them, the more they spite everyone else. Skillers are useless anyways. Free players aren't. They could potentially become PKers and PvMers who actually contribute some resources and whatnot to the game. 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. :(
