Title: Was Runescape better before "the Updates"?


Amadán - January 29, 2009 05:12 AM (GMT)
I used to play Runescape two years ago before all the controversal changes like the Grand Exchange, Trade Limits, and Wilderness updates came into effect.

Though the updates killed "free trade", I find the system much more fairer and items aren't as overpriced as before (Rune Pickaxes, Rune armour, etc.). On the other hand it has caused certain items to be lowered in value and importance, making them almost worthless.

Rune scape was 1 million times better before!!

Rs was a lot better before, trading and old wildy were the shift. Now I someone with whip and get like a rune mace... building up dp is a pain.

I think it's better now, that's just my opinion. I hated whenever someone gets scammed, or cheated out of a trade. The trade restrictions and the g.e. were great additions. The whole wildly thing is a pity that it was taken away... Still that's not enough to change my vote.

yes but no
because ge is awesome i can make more money but widerness stuff sucks

I think it was better before because free trade was really easy to merchant compared to using th G/e to merchant today. And even though i didn't use it that much, the wildy was awesome! Kill the guy and take all his stuff? Those were the days... I also enjoyed the respect players gave to people doing clues... Revs have no respect.

Well... They exchanged wilderness PVP for whole world PVP. Aren't that something to enjoy?

It sucks that you can't give/recieve anything of much value and that pking is not very profitable, but High Detail mode and G.E. have made up for it (that's why I came back to RS in september anyway :P )

Oh yeah... HD Rune was also a nice addition.
So for advantages we already have:
1. HD Rune
2. Whole PVP worlds
3. South American server.
4. No trade scamming anymore.
5. G.E. and easy money making
6. Ability to do "stockbroking"

And disadvantages:
1. pvp is unprofitable
2. no free trading (or) limited trading
3. no merchanting

Anything else?

i see your arguements so i changed from yes to no. I do hate the fact of the wilderness now. but i like the ge system.

Give wilderness pl0x, The GE is nice but they shouldnt have removed the wildy.

Yes i think it was, but you gotta take what they give you and make the best outta it.

animal magik - January 31, 2009 10:36 AM (GMT)

Kevinsaurus - January 31, 2009 12:16 PM (GMT)

I never had a high enough combat to PvP effectively before the Wilderness updates came out, so I wouldn't really know. But PvP definitely isn't profitable anymore, with the one-item nubs running around in hotspots <_<

But the GE is just pure awesome. I remember having to walk around in banks, trying to buy certain items needed for quests. Now I just use a varrock tele and I have instant access to every tradeable item in RS. :D

And I didn't know you could vote both yes and no on the same poll...my bad... ;)

Runescape before didn't have high detail or the grand exchange, but I did enjoy the game a lot more than I do now. Back then there was actually a threat in the Wilderness, and the free trade was amazing. It would be nice if we could have runescape now with the real wilderness, I would be happy with that.
