OSRS is at it's peak in the number of players since it started. So the big question is; how does jagex fix the inactive wilderness?
Back in 05-07 PKing was one of the most popular things ever. You guys remember when you could make a fucking lvl 20 pure and hit up level 3 varrock wilderness and every world would be LIT?? It didn't matter if you have a level 3 or a level 50, you would always come out fighting. How does jagex bring that back?
Is it just that the newer generation of players don't care for pking?
Is Pking just not worth it anymore? (bad way to make money, etc.)
Has jagex just focused on so much PvM content that the wilderness has become irrelevant?
IMO, We'll never see the days of varrock lvl 1 wilderness being active ever again. MMOs are evolving and people are taking on newer interests. Runescape will always have a core number of players, but never enough to bring back the old wilderness.
Deep wilderness Pking is another thing though. Rune rock pking in f2p is still a thing for a reason. People will always need resources. When someone is too lazy to get the mining level for rune, he'll go out hunting for it and more people will go out hunting for that person.
Putting more resources in deep wilderness would definitely help. I think they should put in some more rune rocks, but in a riskier spot somewhere that is multi. Maybe put in some new monster that don't drop shit that's worth 1m+ but drops some type of noted resource.
Are there any other resources you guys would like to be put into the wilderness?
