Thanks to our generous voters that vote daily to keep us high on our voting lists!
Hello everyone, today we will be doing three forum promotions. The final decision to go through with these promotions was made by Soccerlove and myself but all forum staff members helped us with it.
The three people who we have decided to promote are Icarly65 & So Yontoo to Shoutbox Moderator and Christian to Sectional Moderator. They have been doing really well on forums recently so we believe they'll do a good job with their new ranks.
Christian will be able to moderate the following sections: Official, Support, Community and Development.
As with all newly promoted staff members, they will be on a two week trial to show us they've got what it takes.
So, today marks 2 years since I joined GrinderScape. For almost half of that time I've been a forum staff, and managed to work my way up to global mod. I can honestly say it's been an absolute pleasure staffing the forums with some truly great people. They all know who they are so I don't need to mention anyone. I want to say a special thank you to you all, those that staffed with me in the past and those who staffed with me up until today. I also wanna thank the forums community, which in my opinion has been great up until recently, where it's starting to die down a little bit.
So the reason for my resignation? Honestly, a mixture of a lack of motivation and just being tired of being staff. Being a staff can be great a lot of the time, but at other times it just becomes a chore and you have to deal with some really toxic people. College is starting again soon and I want to focus on my studies too.
I'm fairly certain a lot of people will be happy with this resignation, and I'm fine by that. They'll probably respond to this thread too, which will produce some chuckles out of me, so go ahead. Whether I'll be seen as a good staff member isn't up for me to decide. I've tried my hardest and that's all that really matters to me.
I'd also like to give a shoutout to @0xCAFEBABE. Your wish has finally come true.
For those of you that care, I'll still be around, just without the crown by my name. Thanks again.
First off, I would like to apologize on behalf of the entire staff team for not having this thread out sooner.
A few months ago, we came to an agreement to set a RSGP trade limit. The limits are:
300M 07/ RS3 intotal
Once you’ve reached either 300m 07 / RS3 in total, you will be blacklisted. Rules of the blacklist:
1) While blacklisted, you cannot buy RSGP on any of the account(s) you own nor have another member of Grinderscape buy RSGP for you. Doing so will result in a permanent host ban with your items possibly being wiped.
2) You cannot appeal to be taken off the blacklist. The staff team decides when a player will be removed from the blacklist (no exceptions).
3) You can still sell RSGP while blacklisted. Although you may still sell RSGP, selling RSGP will not make you eligible to be removed from the blacklist.
Let me give an example of the rules so everyone understands it so the won't have to be any discussions afterwards
First you trade 233 mil 07( total), later you trade 65mil Rs3( total), means you almost reached your limit ( 233+65 makes 298)
You are allowed to buy 2 mil 07 or Rs3, then Limit is reached and you'll be blacklisted.
If you have any questions about this, feel free to pm any staff member.
Today we decided to promote Shwoop to Server Support.
@Shwoop has been doing a great job and has been helping out a lot for quite some time now, and we believe he's ready for the chance as a server support.
Thijs lives in the Netherlands (GMT + 1) & will be helping out mostly at this timezone.
Of course as all promotions, he will be on a 2 week trial.
Congratulations Thijs, and good luck!
Regards, GrinderScape Staff
Well, I thought getting demoted to SS would give me the motivation to get my activity back up. Well, if anything its demotivated me. That along with me not enjoying the game anymore, as I previously have felt, I feel its ample time to resign for good.
I've thoroughly enjoyed my time playing Grinderscape, meeting new people and becoming friends with a handful, who of which i'd love to still keep talking to them.
I'd like to thanks the entire staff team over the period of time that I was a staff member for making it such an enjoyable time.
Also, thank you Max and Ron for allowing me to become a staff member in the first place, and then Niels for allowing me to return at the end of last year.
I will come back ingame regularly to talk to people, but I have no intentions of staying for a consistant amount of time.
I'll probably regret this rather soon, but oh well.
Thanks for the great time,
This week I've been working on some fixes and additions for the website, it's been a while since I lastly did an update.
Since we moved to new forum software I also had to update the homepage feeds, as you might have noticed they were outdated or not working, they now should all work properly again (except for the developer blog tab, since that thread is still being processed on the forums).
Many of you guys have also been complaining about the highscores not working, I'm sorry for that, I was working hard on reworking the highscores.
Previously our highscores were caching results which meant that you could sometimes get outdated data, now I actually managed to optimize our queries ALOT so that it can now easily load within a few ms so that you guys can actually see live highscores which also is alot faster then it was.
I've also added a small thing on the highscores so that when you search for a user and you then press on the skill (to see your position in the tree) it will give the row a red background so you can easily see where you are placed at.
Some highscores data is a little broken and not totally correct so there may be really small incorrect rank numbers, I will try to fix these up over the next weeks.
I have also added email templates for most of our emails sent by the homepage, these look a lot more professional now then the plain text it showed before.
And with that I've also updated the homepage framework that is used and cleaned up alot of bad code.
There are also minor design changes made, if you encounter any problems, please let me know!
In this thread I'll be posting things things that I want to say or discuss with the community,
feel free to post, just remember to keep on the topics mentioned,
please don't talk about random things here.
I'll use this thread to post my thoughts and see how community reacts, that's not a Q&A thread, don't post about things not mentioned before.
Hey I'll be posting bellow progress on Combat Scratch Rework Updates!
Max Hit splash system was created, all damages that are equal or ABOVE max hit (in case of special) will render with a different splash
Now Run Energy is capped to 100, the energy will drain according player weight which is now calculated as well!
The Run energy restore speed is now based on player's agillity level!
All those changes affect a lot combat making effects such as energy leech more useful!
-- Multi Combat Areas
All Game Multi combat areas were reviewed and adjusted, a few new ones were added, but all Wildy multi area was re-created as the following:
-- Phoenix Necklace
Phoenix Necklace was reworked together with Ring of Life and Ring of Recoil (Which were mentioned on my blog)
- Phoenix Necklace will recover 30% of player's max life in case health falls bellow 20%, on duel arena will only have effect in case Food is allowed, the effect will also prevent next tick damage.
--- Poisoned Weapons
Now Poisoned Weapons will apply poison effect over the damaged player
There are weapons with Weak (p), Regular (p+) and Strong (p++) poison damages (4 - 5 - 6).
Today I've worked on some ways to prevent in-game boosting and a few other things, let's see how it turns out!
An anti-boosting system was added to the game.
God birds were added to Castle Wars shop.
God's Capes and Hoods were added to Castle Wars shop.
Castle Wars Boss
Every 2 minutes and 30 seconds a boss will spawn at center of battle-field.
The boss Max HP depends on the amount of players playing.
Each time the boss is killed, the team that dealt most damage will be rewarded with an effect.
So everyone in the team will have the effect activated.
First Effect: Rewarded when boss is killed for the first time.
Restless - All players will not spend any energy point when running.
Second Effect: Rewarded when boss is killed for the second time.
Harm - Barrage will not freeze the player with that effect.
Players will gain extra tickets reward for killing the bosses
You will no longer see attack option on your team mates
Wild anti boosting was disabled, it's re-enabled.
An anti-boosting system was applied to the game.
Players will now gain 1 Weapon Game point every 10 kills at Weapon Game, meaning that now maxed players can still get Dominion Swords.
Rewards dropped on floor will no longer appear to other players, and will remain only 30 seconds available.
Dominion swords may now last 1 hour rather than 30 minutes in combat.
An anti-boosting system was applied to the game.
A bug allowing players to walk to NPCs while frozen was fixed.
Crashed stars no longer can be spotted from distance.
A bug making some client crash on low specs computer was fixed.
Bank screenshot item amount colors will change according the amount now.
About combat update:
Most spells from all spells books are finished, a few things are left to be adjusted, thanks to Not Russ help, lot's of progress could be done!
Currently I'm working on Combat Updates and much have been done, magic system combat-related is nearly finished already together with melee and range and soon we're stepping to rework prayer and following systems, those in development support team can confirm that everything is running smoothly.
But today I'll be releasing a few Live-game fixes
Red Skull may no longer become white skull when attacking another player at wild.
Barrows Kill count will be displayed on surface now as well.
Bank Settings no longer will be affected by Duel Arena Challenging settings (All bank settings were reset)
Fixed an issue caused when player teleport|attack or get barraged|attack someone, making player appear in a location that is not the real player location.
Fixed a big bug related to ironman|trading.
Now when becoming ironman, all task progress will be reset avoiding easy gain of mystery boxes.
Most player points and collection box will now be reset when player become an ironman or die as hardcore ironman.
'Spectrum' and 'Help' clan were merged, now everyone who attempt to join 'help' clan will now join 'Spectrum'.
Admins can join any clan chat even if banned now.
Admins are able to set co-owners for clan chats.

****** Week #3: Top Five k0’s ******
(This week, I will be looking for the best k0’s. Whether that be with mage, range, or melee, instant specs, etc etc, just show me the best k0’s you guys can possibly do)
--- What is a top five? ---
-*-*- In simple terms, a top five is a list of videos which is sent in by any player and is ranked 1-5. The rank of your video is chosen and decided by me. The videos for example could be - Top 5 K0's, Top 5 Range kills, Top 5 Stakes, Top 5 Multi Pking, Top 5 Misclicks - etc. -*-*-
--- How do you submit a video? ---
-*-*- Most preferably - Upload your video on mediafire, and share me that link. To do so -*-*-
1) Either send me a forum pm to the mp4/video file or if that doesn't work,
2) email it to me on my email that I created just for this – [email protected]
--- What are the rules? ---
- 1) Make sure to keep it within the topic. Pretty self - explanatory. If the week calls for a Top 5 Range kills, then submit range kills only.
- 2) Make sure to send submit your video's to only the methods above. If you try posting a submission video in the comment section down below, it will not count, and I will have it removed.
- 3) ONLY 1 VIDEO ENTRY PER PERSON. (If you try and submit more than 1 entry, I will only count the first submission. + you may be disqualified)
- 4) Video clips can be months/years old, to brand new. So if you have old clips that you think has a good shot of winning? Then submit it! If you don't? Fear not, you have one week to get a good clip in.
--- So how does this work? ---
1) I submit a post at the beginning of every fortnight, announcing the topic of that particular fortnight.
2) After the announcement you have one week to submit your entry. After that I will look through the clips that are submitted: I will base them off numerous criteria.
3) Once I have a list of top 5 submissions, I will begin to compile/edit these videos.
4) I will publish the final video every fortnight - so the top 5 lucky people gets to have the privilege of being featured in my videos.
5) Winner? The person I choose to be the #1 of the Top 5 is the final winner
6) I will also add in my very own commentary for each ones.
--- Why should you participate? ---
1) This is a great way to advertise Grinderscape which will potentially gain more players for the community, making it even larger than it already is.
2) It's a great chance to try and get yourself some In-game items
The grand prize for winning this Top five aka being chosen as #1 is...
Statius set + armadyl godsword + onyx ring
Check out my Youtube channel Here
NOTE: You will have exactly 7 days from now. You can submit your entry till Saturday the 3th of September 12 am [GMT +1]. After that I will not take anymore entries.

What is MOTM?
Member of the Month (MOTM) is a rank that was created to recognize a player of our community each month who goes above and beyond what is expected of them. These people go out of their way to help other members, they contribute greatly to the server, and they reflect a positive outlook on what Grinderscape represents.
Each month, five (5) nominees will be selected and voted on to win this coveted rank. At the end of a five (5) day period, the voting will close and the player with the most votes will win the rank. The process of selecting nominees is going to be up to you, the community. We want your input on who you think deserves to wear this rank. Exactly one (1) week from today, the Event Team will compile a list of your nominations and narrow it down to who we believe are the most deserving of the rank.
- You cannot nominate yourself.
-You cannot nominate staff members. You may nominate Event Team Members but you MUST give an explanation.
- You cannot nominate anyone who is banned/has been banned within the last month.
- If you do not have any input on who to nominate, don’t post. (i.e. “No one even deserves it this month,” or “Good luck.”) This also includes spamming or fake nominations. If you don’t have serious input do not post or you will be punished accordingly.
- You can nominate as many people who you think deserve it. If you nominate more than one person, please keep it to one post. Edit your post if you think of more people, do not repost.
- Do not ask to be nominated, as you will likely lose your chances of being nominated.
Thank you for your input
-Grinderscape Event Team
Entry #1 : Some skiller
This achievement took about a month and 3 weeks to accomplish, but I finally did it. I believe I am the second person to reach maxed on a Hardcore Ironman (First being Whatlifedoth?).
Entry #2 : Magnata
I took 4k kills in pk in 8-9 months playing in a time of 5-6 hours in the pk, so being a 10-15 kills in pk a day.
This means a lot to me, I am very happy to win this goal.
Entey #3 : Dmitrijis
this achievement took me a very long time, more than 8 months anyways, but it's special to me because it took me a long time to get it and i believe it takes everybody a long time and i was waiting really long to get so, here it is.
Entry #4 : Raiderist
Finally managed to get all the castle war items except the birds, that's the next goal though! 2500 games is the end goal probably
Entry #5 : So Yontoo
This achievement is very special to me because I've been playing RSPS since the summer of 2009 or 2010, and I've never maxed out an account, ever. I've maxed my first account So Yontoo in late 2013, and never had the motiviation to max another account, I've had every single account type (main, pure, skiller, ironman, ult ironman) and only my main ever got a max cape. Now after coming back to The Fatee, I decided I want to max another account, and I did it
Entry #6 : tekfhn1
Cooking 350m xp. Such a fun road.
Voting will end on 7-30-26 at 11:59 PM. The winner will be announced via this thread.

As you can see here all teleports will be packed in a single interface, making them much easier to access and less confuse, principally to new players, however it's accessed from the World Map button, which is not available in older game frame versions...
I'm making spell book teleport spells take a player to a single and static position, like their respective cities in case for modern spellbooks, for ancient and lunar may not be like that,
however some teleport cities from modern spellbooks are not that much relevant like trollherim and watchtower, so Im thinking of removing the 'T' teleport button and move the 'W' next to 'H' teleport and make it open the teleport interface, making it a 'World Teleport' thats why the 'W'
I guess everyone is fine with that ^^
Now that I've pretty much finished with non combat spells, there's another matter:
For the game teleports spells:
I'm planning to make each teleport spell move players to their respective city, and we will provide a manner to teleport to anywhere in the game from a single interface that can be accessed from world map button.
Lunar and Ancient spells teleport would lead to places where players can't arrive using regular teleport methods, which would require runes and mage level.
