|It's a way to account strength. It is an indicator of strength in RuneScape Gold
the account. It is likely this is why "It scales users very well" isn't an option in the RSOF topic, where players are able to voice their opinion on the calculation of 138.
Not only is the 200 formula scale a good fit for players, it is pretty simple to figure out. For example when you raise your defense, you can calculate what you can expect to achieve in terms of combat. In addition, by studying another's combat level you will be able to figure out the approximate range of the stats of the player.
I don't know who could possibly claim that the 200 formula does a better job of what it's supposed to do, even if you include all the other factors.
A possible solution Important Note at the end of this editorial Jagex will hold another poll that will allow users to alter the 138 calculation in the event that the 138 calculation is successful. This could possibly prevent the problem discussed above. The system would have to change drastically. The calculation would be affected by hitpoints and Strength and Attack would have to be adjusted for range and magic.
Will this poll to alter the combat system result in Buy OSRS Fire Cape solving the problem. We don’t know but we are sceptical. People's choices are influenced by their nostalgia, as we have previously stated. They want the old calculation to be used again, not a totally new one.
