The idea sounds good but you went overboard with the tickets, 20 tickets is not proportionate to the other teams. <3 Guthix. ^_^

The guthix team should have some NPC's guarding the camps as well, would make it slightly more fair, like "Knight of Guthix" or something.

I Support This Completely

A Very Nice Suggestion :)

Thanks Steve :)

Arkaney, i appreciate your idea but i don't think NPC's would work. The reason being is that Castle wars is so famous for being able to attack other players in a fun enviroment without the risk of losing items, I don't think NPC's would keep the essence of the game.

If this is to be put in, the gates and tents must be less powerful. Many level 95+ are capable of ice bursts and barrage. Even with two teams trying to batter the place, they will die too fast. Also, when Guthix loses they should end the game right there and then, not get to a Zamorak or sarnd team. That is like giving them a second chance to switch teams-which was never allowed. But I still think it is too complicated to add in, Castle Wars is like a 1 on 1 thing, if there was a third party that they have to kill or run away from, it will mess the whole thing up. So I do not think this is a great idea. But you have put load of effort I believe, and nice try.

I agree with your thing on the less powerful gates and tents, ive taken both HP lvl's way down so thanks for pointing that out.

But however i think that if the game ended right there when Guthix is defeated, it wouldn't really be much fun as it would discourage people from attacking the camps. It doesn't really give players a chance to switch teams because they don't have the power to decide wether they want to join Sara or Zammy.

But hey this is just a suggestion and im not gonna push Jagex to add this is in. I loved Castle Wars when i was a member, just thought this would make it funner.

For this to happen the length of the game would ahve to be greatly extended. It would take way to long to do 2500 hp worth of damage to the tents not to mention the fact that the tents can be repaired. The idea is interesting and could be entertaining but I don't see it working.

Keeping the game span for 20 minutes makes it even funner, it means people really have to think about what they're going to have to do and wether it will affect their team.

It will just make CW more tactical. In real life war, you don't have all the time in the world to organize troops, supplies and defences. You have to do it all before the battle starts.

Guthix is suppost to be about balence and peace. Just look at the druids, Guthix's most strict followers. They are people of peace.

Putting Guthix in castle wars wouldn't make sense. Zammorak and Saradomin don't like each other very much because of there differences. Guthix is in the middle, not taking any side.

Why not just have a graphical update and allow Guthix it's own Fort? Green capes ftw.

By the way, while we're at it... Can we PLEASE remove the hoods from the game?? Why can't I wear a helm? We use capes to signify team in the wilderness, we're fully capable of doing so in castle wars.

I do support the majority of the idea though :)

Ok well you know, I've always wanted a Guthix team, but honestly I feel that the reason Guthix is even in castle wars is 1. Its one of the 3 most common gods. And 2. It represents good and evil there for random. Though what I think is Guthix shouldn't be just sending you to the team with the lower amount of players but it SHOULD be random. Thats something that really sets me off when I want to choose guthix, it isn't random and half the time (if i've been playing for even 1 or 2 games) I will already know what team I will end up on. Though honestly, i'm not too upset with the idea of NOT having a guthix team, nor if they implimented this I wouldn't be heart broken either.

This is a great idea and would be fun to play on. Add pictures though, so people can get more of a visual on what it would look like. I'm not sure if I missed it, but where do people get those healing balms on team Guthix? BTW, 15 hp is a bit much, it should be your combat level/10 like it is for Sara and Zammy

I know i didn't really explain it much but the balms are found on tables in the camps near the middle. Not very good at pics so i dont really know how to create a visual walkthrough.

Guess 15 is alright cause the Guthix players need to do lots and will take some heavy beating. I didn't know that bandages healed cmb lvl / 10 :cry:

I think it would crowd CW a little too much. I already mstakenly attack my own players, I don't want another team to interfere with that. Maybe make and advanced version of CW? Ooh, maybe I'll have to start thinking about that. A CW for the little kids and one for the big kids. *NO BIG KIDS ALLOWED IN THE LITTLE KIDS AREA* It needs thought...alot of it...

Errrr.....

If you have played CW you'd realise that you CANNOT attack team-mates, your God won't allow it... Are you thinking of the wilderness??

Far too complicated for a game such as Castle Wars. Sure, a guthix team would be nice, but remember the saying - "keep it simple, stupid".

Don't take it as a stab, though. I like the way you have presented your idea and it's very well put across. The only problem I see with it is that I feel it will be immensly hard for Guthix to win the game; them having to defend both flags till the end of the game is a tough challenge, especially when you have two other teams battering against you.

Perhaps making just one camp where guthix sits in the top right or bottom left of the castlewars arena would be better. Also; I like the idea with the destroyable tents ;)

Oh, and P.S another small problem I can forsee happening is that if this were to ever come into RuneScape, wouldn't there be a loss of competition between Zamorak/Saradomin? Perhaps both teams would just attack guthix camps, them being new.

what if guthix is only there to help both of the teams, while in zamorak castle they can only attack saradomin & while in saradomin castle they can only attack zamorak and out in the "field" they can attack both. But still! they will not have tents, they will just have a spawn location just as saradomin and zamorak, but not in a castle, maybe a basement under the tunnel would been cool. and about how guthix will win, if guthix (as it's ment to be a balanced god) would earn/win 2 tickets when it's a DRAW. And they will earn DUBBLE tickets if they make the standings at ZERO. Of course guthix will have a limit of players, maybe half of sara/zammy (the team with most players) so it won't be as unfair.

Guthix does need his own team...If you were no it, you could act as a neutral helper and steal zammy's flag for sara, then steal sara's flag for zammy...so each team could send a scout and use him/her to steal..i support!

if u were to add a third castle the whole area shape wud have to be a triangle to make it more fair with guthix at the top and zam/sara at the other ends of triangle ,  maybe sum new weps like u said but the orb would make all tactics useless , CW is ace as it is ..... hmmm i think it would be better off left alone.
