Could not be more untrue. This private server is more community driven than just about any game out there. If you don't agree with the decisions that the community makes, then maybe you should be more involved with the process instead of complaining about the results like you are a victim.

Every single serious pker complained about it. It needed to be changed because brews became a crutch for unskilled pkers to outlast and outperform skilled pkers. You all really underestimate the amount of pkers on this server. Sure PvMers are in the majority, but that is because for the better part of the last 6 years PvMers have been catered to and Pkers have just had to deal with not getting updates. A lot of our pking content is also locked behind PvMing and skilling. This forces our Pkers out of the wild for a large portion of their time. You all are left with the impression that Pking is 'dead' and that the only thing that matters are the opinions of PvMers.

Again, the difference is between features and bugs. If there is a core mechanic that deviates so much from runescape, players will have a very difficult time adjusting. This affects player retention and the overall growth of the server. Features can be, and generally should be somewhat different from OSRS. Jagex is not perfect, and they have made a lot of stupid decisions in the past. Introducing unbalanced features and content. Take a look at all the different and Unique features that Pkhonor has. Risky Barrows, Nex, Overloads, Extreme potions, Super prayers, Pvp Armours, chaotics, customs, completionist capes, Quests, achievement diaries. Even most of our bosses function differently: Mole, Kraken, TSD, KBD, Chaos Ele, and more. The difference between these two is pretty obvious.

Not at all. You clearly have no experience pking if you think that there is no difference between 3-tick and 2-tick potions. Bad hybrids like myself instantly become decent. Good Hybrids become unkillable in singles.

Again, this is so inaccurate. A large amount of our player base pks. Obviously on an economy server, PvM is going to dominate. Especially when most pking content is locked behind pvming and skilling.
