Make high scores such as highest amount of drops instead of kills. Would be interesting @ telos.

I think it was fine... I just wish, for magic atleast, that 4taa wasn't the only way to compete for number 1 spot. I'd rather not cause hand problems just for a virtual title. Hopefully you guys make it more accessible or something easier to do and removing it when you reveal your plans for it at runefest.

Dungeoneering was pay to win, pretty disappointing that I couldn't compete in it, despite it being my favorite skill, simply because I didn't buy keys for an outfit.

Although this won't change, I do think top 5 or 10 for gold title would be better. If you can't get number 1, there is no reason to try for higher besides banter between others. It would be a lot more competitive if it was top 5 or 10 as people wouldn't feel they need to do certain extreme tactics to get a title. It is a shame the community, most of which probably can't even get top 100, voted for only 1 person to get the gold title, because people like exclusive stuff for some reason. It can be exclusive, but not so exclusive it becomes near impossible to get. If a competition is decided by 1-3 seconds, it's usually because of rng rather then skill. Demotivating to lose a golden title due to it and being on limited time due to overpowered berserk auras.

This doesn't affect me as no chance ill be in the top of any hiscores, but was hoping something might be put in place to stop the same person winning the same category repeatedly. I'm aware that the person might, in theory, deserve to be able to win multiple times as they're "the best", but it would be nice if others were able to be recognized for their efforts.


I agree with you. It's funny that for telos, he's just abusing 4taa to get the number 1 spot again, and due to the chances of people being 1. good at telos 2. good at speed running telos 3. knowing how to do 4taa very well is well... unlikely. Person below should just get the title if the person in 1st has it already. If there isn't a "fix" for this then rip. Pretty big ego to do that though imo.

The only huge problem I see with any pvm one is that mage is extremely op and if you can't afford 5b in gear then you can't compete. The mage auto attack should have never become a thing, but will jagex fix it? Probably not.


Also, maybe make separate highscores for ironmen so they have a chance. Especially for things like dg.


As far as I'm aware the mage 4taa is only useful at telos records. I am unsure if leg rider got his araxxor kill with melee or magic, but it was probably melee. Nex/QBD you don't use magic, so... yeah only telos is with magic 4taa.

They are fixing it though. Changing it into something fun potentially. Will be discussed @ runefest on the 27th!

haha what? "hes just abusing 4taa"

literally everyone in top 10 (probably even top 25) is doing cont 4taa...

funny how 90% of the time I see you, you're condescending someone or just trying to put them down. I remember you flaming me on a speedkill video I posted on youtube a while ago

yet here you are, barely getting top 50s, and complaining you cant do 4taa cause hand problems? hand problems on runescape? haha search osu where players are doing 18+ inputs per second for hours straight for years?


Just because other people use a glitch for an advantage, doesn't make it not a bug. It is a bug, and jagex even said instead of outright removing it, they are going to change it into something fun. Since it is a bug, me saying they are abusing it, is correct.

Also don't lie about me and what I post. You see my posts as negative because it challenges you and your way of thinking.

Saying I am barely in the top 50's as an argument just proves my point that getting a better rank in seasonal besides rank 1 is just for banter. I didn't try in my seasonals for a top spot, just enough to get title. For example, Nex I didn't even try, I just got it while hunting for pet (no adren stalling). I also don't find highscores to be a true show of skill. Skill is more so consistency rather then a flashy kill. I was considering doing the Nex seasonal and potentially getting rank 1 for a gold title but I decided against it due to me having other things to do.

Also I don't recall me flaming you on youtube. I don't pay attention to names really. You probably just took it as flame due to it conflicting with your thoughts/opinions.

Doing the same type of clicks/hand movements constantly does cause hand problems in the future. Sometimes you can see the symptoms within a year, other times years. But it does cause problem. I care about my future health more then a game, sorry. This only applied to telos, as I've said.

To add, your QBD time is with slayer task, I didn't have, and I could've gotten number 6 spot if i didn't mess up by 1 second, but didn't bother with more as no point.

At araxxor, You are only 2 seconds higher then me, and I only spend 30 minutes waiting for good rng and I even messed up quite badly in 3 instances that run due to how frustrating a rng highscore is.

At nex, you are only 3 seconds higher then me, and you most likely adren stalled.

At Telos, you abused 4taa, as at telos, like you've said yourself, the only way to be top scores @ telos is abusing the 4taa bug.

So really I don't get your banter of "barely getting top 50" as if that is an actual argument you can use against me when you yourself aren't much different from my times and the only big difference was the telos kill time. Typical ignorant person tbh.

-------

"Tbh based on how close alot of the times were, You might have needed to be on qbd task for top 100 unless You are a rs god lol."

I got top 12 spot or something like that on QBD in 3 tries without slayer task. I messed up due to lag so missed out on a second and would've been top 6. Definitely didn't need a slayer task to go for QBD record. That or I guess I'm a QBD god amirite? lol

---

Also Jagex, you should consider doing money prizes for things like this. Unsure the best way to go about it to prevent rigging, but if there was money involved I along with many others would compete more.
