Saradomin & Zamorak portals at Castle Wars

Post by Mike » Wed Jun 14, 2017 3:03 pm

If memory serves, the suggestion to remove the Zamorak & Saradomin portals at Castle Wars (and only leave the Guthix portal) had been accepted quite a while ago, but I wanted to set up this official poll to make sure the community is indeed behind this change.

I've already made some changes and rebalances to Castle Wars to discourage boosting and encourage actually playing the game, but I also wanted to know if the community is fully behind the removal of being able to choose which team to join.

Yes, also increase ticket rewards. Give more tickets for actually playing.

Make sure people can't just leave and rejoin until they are in the team they want to be in though

That's already part of the update I've been working on the past couple weeks. To be released within 30 hours ;)

You present a good point. That's definitely something to keep in mind, thanks!

Yes, this would discourage players to boost with their friends, and will make matches more balanced by not being having 1 stacked team. Haven't played much Castle Wars, but I'm looking forward to this update

Personally, I think it would be pointless, as people already know how to stack teams through green portal. I feel removing the portals would simply be extra work to fix an issue that would still be around. I don't really have any idea to fix the boosting issue personally, but tbh I feel the bigger issue is that CW just isn't worth the time put in anyways. Its a pretty straightforward game so its played more for the rewards vs the fun.

We are lucky, this will prevent Candy Bars from stacking

Would also help if some of the castle wars items weren't useless...
