What does everyone feel about the new updates. I think the Duel Arena is a nice addition to f2p, but the inability to drop trade or give away free things is pretty stupid. Any comments on clan wars and bounty hunter are welcome as well.

Okay, so I don't use the Duel Arena nor go to the wildy/pk. BUT we can no longer trade without receiving something in return? Is that what has happened? Because if so that really is ridiculous. I play with several friends and my boyfriend, and we are always giving each other things, or lending items etc. =)

That's appalling. I was bored reading the Dev. Diaries after all the pking/wildy mentions, so I never got to this part. Grr. Can they just trade me 1gp or something? I'm happy with that =P

You can trade things of any value so long as what you recieve has less than 3k difference in value. I happen to think that is a bit restrictive since I used to give more than that in discount to my friends. 30k would seem better to me & would still hinder the real world traders quite a bit.

Ok, so it's really interesting havinf F2P Dueling Arena, and the whole clan and bounty wars thing is really cool. But, come on now, free trading restriction to only 3k yeah im gonna ave to say that's ridiculous. I can see hiring workers to mine for me is going to be a little bit more challenging....

I am mad cuz of what they did with the pk now theres no such thing as that. Bounty hunters is worst so i stoped playing for awhile. people even protested about it lol. One other thing I don't like is that the trade thing sucks.

Well the point of the 3K limit was to stop people buying runescape money with real money which has to be stopped, and that was the only way to fully stop it happening. Clan wars is ok, it can be fun if you want to do something with friends.

The trade rule is the worst update Jagex has ever installed. Duel arena and clan wars are cool though.

Get over it....Really. Look, we have been with the wildy for a long time, but we actually asked for it. We complained about the wilderness scams and bots and other things. We also asked for things lead up to bounty hunter. WE ASKED FOR IT! Also, we requested clan wars in many,many different ways. So then Jagex gives us it, AND WE COMPLAIN! Look, I know as much as the next guy that Jagex does not give a **** about us, but I mean their lust for money brought them to look at what we asked for, and this is that. Runescapeians complain no matter what is given to them, even if we asked for it. Also, you have to look at the good side of these updates. There are many great things that loom in Bounty hunting, and you have to look for them. We got to count our blessings with the whole wilderness thing, thats what christmas is about

Personally I have taken a great dislike to all of the new updates. Firstly, I really didn't see the need to take away the wilderness, especially as now there are the gravestones and the fact that people can't get your stuff if you die and the stuff is worth more than 3k gp. I did not PK, I did not spend time in the wilderness, but this issue has upset many people! The revernant ghosts which now inhabit the "wilderness" are a bane to anyone who goes there, just trying to complete level 3 treasure trail clues can be a nightmare as these ghosts can use any form of combat and hit very high, plus they can take you out of combat with other enemies even in a non multi combat area (how stupid is that if you are trying to fight a mage of zamorak for your clue?). Bounty hunter is no replacement for the old PK, so many people have complained that as it is all multi combat area, that people get teamed, especially in the 100+ cave. meaning that to be able to survive in there, you must have a great clan to even attempt going in and hoping to win! Clan wars has recieved a great reception, but I can only say I think it's the same as Bounty hunter to be honest... The trade restictions are what have made me the most mad. I feel they are too dictatative! They dont allow for random acts of generosity that I am used to, I am a high lvl character, I have alot of money and alot of things, and I like to share that with those I know. This is not just in game friends, but people I know in real life too. My sisters play, My son plays, My boyfriend plays, My boyfriends' cousing plays... I have given all of them things in the past just because I had the ability to replace them easily. My bf has had 1.3mil in gp alone out of me just because I wanted to, full rune, not a problem for me ect... Now that has to stop and it annoys me greatly. There are solutions which jagex could take up instead of these restrictions, things that could work better... just pop to the official forums to see what people have come up with, but it's highly unlikely that jagex will back track even slightly as they think they are always right and that angers me! I have 2 days left on my membership, and I am not going to re-up itunless they find some way to rectify things and manage to do what they want (get rid of RWT)... after christmas, when the new year comes, we will see.

I can't say I care for the 3k difference limit their putting in next year. I used to give discounts to my friends greater than that.
