OP  2/16/13 6:20:52 PM#1

Two days ago Jagex posted a poll on their site asking the playerbase to vote if they wanted to bring back Runescape in all its glory of the 2007 era. 

 

This means that there will be a seprate click-off game from the main game itself for players to go play. Everyone will be starting from level-3 with a whole new ecom to build and for everyone that  hates the current game (EoC) to play and relive those glory days of Runescape.

 

To vote on the poll you need to be a member, but anyone that buys membership and votes YES to the server's will get the first month free on the server, so you're just paying in advance for membership.

 

So why not go vote and help us bring back the glory days of Runescape! Links below;

http://services.runescape.com/m=poll/rs2007-server

http://services.runescape.com/m=news/old-school-runescape-servers-poll-now-live

 

We hope we can hit our goal of 250,000 votes by the 1st of March.

I'd play original runescape again, the 2.5d version.  I was completely hooked on that.

Maybe pre g/e would bring the community back. Maybe pre SoF with trade limits would be a better idea.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

I remember that being a member meant I could use my dragon axe, and I had 93 fishing.  They did this big update to the graphics and I stopped playing, it was too much change, a different game.

With these server's there won't be a G.E or SoF or trade limits. Everything that was in the game pre-August 2007 will be there. Nothing will be added unless voted upon by the player base.

game is also real

vote is member only.
sorry but I'll not pay Jagex anymore after all broken promises and constant lie.

about pre 2007: sure it was a year of great success (1 mil sub record), and they killed it like 2 months later. =D
problem is, IMO, it was good for 2007. I have no idea if it will be same at 2013, and doubt hard about.
RS has lot of nostalgic players, that right, but most of them left game shortly after end 2007 and never got back, some of them adopted changes and still play till now, some left not because of 2007 limit (no free trade, no PK) but because of SoF (IMO means they may be not will like to be in 2007 game, and more if these payers started at 2009 or so).

I mean Jagex want to bring back success of 2007 with 1 mil sub or more, which seems to be impossible to me.

now we have large choice of games, good f2p or partial / a la card, subs. I doubt anyone who started, for example, WoW or LoL after RS will come back for real because of old style server (give try for 1 month, may be, then back to "home" game).

let's look if RS classic is better success as whole game? keep in mind, classic server never stopped run for guys who played it from the start.

as I can't even imagine economical impact of 2007 server to the rest of the game (even if we suppose not to have GE at 2007, nothing can stop player to log into "normal" server, use GE, getting back to 2007 etc), I guess idea is not very clear.

beside I doubt anything can help this game to get rid of bots, scammers, gold sellers and other crap, making big part of RS, even on sub servers.

Game was good and fun till the end of 2007, then they took decision to make it way less attractive, so by now it's done.

P.S. any idea why my char now looks like Australopithecus? what sort of graphic design they did to have big ugly head; long fat arms; short, fat at the end, legs?
so attractive, make me run to get sub /sarcasm

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

If you pay for membership to vote, you'll get the first month free on the server. So you're just paying in advance for that.

 

Since this was posted, fansite forums have seen a huge number of old players return and start posting and have started to get back into the community because of these server's. 

 

You'll be surprised at the how many players would be coming back just to play these server's.

If it goes anything like what happened when EQ tried it, it's going to be a lot of very disappointed fans. People go in expecting to relive a point in their life and learn the hard way you can't do that.

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.

The difference with this though is EOC wrecked the game pretty recently. This would bring the game back to pre-EOC times so I have a feeling it will be effective.

sorry, but "free" and "pay in advance" is opposite things for me.
each time they try to get back to successful time, they have old fans dreaming to find very old fun.
I did it once with free trade back changes, got disappointed of how game was, overlied about measures taken against bots, got very much lag, bug etc poor game experience, then was shown we can buy all if we gamble (SoF), so I took decision to never ever became member of this game again.

if back to 2007 it was nice, intelligent, mercy less and addictive game made by not game professional people, now it money sink stupid grind made by pro money makers and careless about customers and their fun.
I love to be taken for imbecile once but it enough. =D

Hopefully this thread can be seen by some old players that don't keep up with the news of Runescape anymore and want to try it out.

Heh.   I only played runescape as a kid because of ease of accessibility.

Why would I play it again, when I have the option of any MMO I want?

The 'gold age' was then, everyone loved RS back then until they messed with it so much.

+1, why go to micky d's when you can have five guys.

 

In hindsight that came out wrong

What do you mean? You don't like the hindsight of five guys?

 

And yeh, i just saw this... i must say i couldn't care less about what "age" the game launches from, but a fresh start to RS economy sounds pretty fun :D
