What does to IP mean?[edit source]

I've seen many pro-cwers say that someone "IP's" when he/she took the flag faster than the others from the ground. What does that mean? Is it legal? How can you do it (if it's legal)?

IP used to determine a player's PID (Player ID), which sets the order in which the server processes events for each character. Basically, players with lower numbers for the last 2 parts of their IP address would gain an advantage over anyone who performed an action in the same relative window of time that they did. For example: If two people clicked a dropped flag at the same time, the one with the lower IP would get the flag.

However, the Runetek5 update changed the determination of PID, disposing of the usability of IP addresses to gain an advantage. Instead, PID is determined when you log in. The most viable (from a programmers perspective) method of determining PID is that you are given the lowest available PID when you log in (lower = faster), and you lose that PID (and free it up for someone else) as soon as you log out.

Flag holding[edit source]

An IP keeps changing it to say that melee flag holders can't attack. They can attack; just with lower attack power. If you want to argue that, argue it here. Why can't they attack? JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 16:20, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

How many for a game?[edit source]

I was just wondering how many players are needed in each team for a game, cause I'm making a small Cw team who play 50/50. Thanks. --Twisted Master 06:21, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

You only need one per team. -Anonymous User

Tactics[edit source]

Would it be bad to put tactics for playing on the main page or on my page? Thanks. Syugecin

I'd put it in a seprate atricle castle wars tactics 13:20, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Battle Tactics[edit source]

This paragraph is a little off base and repeats some stuff already said in the document. I'm not saying the paragraph should be deleted, it has useful information in it, it just needs to be editede a little bit to exclude already stated information and organize the information in the paragraph to seperate paragraphs to make it easier to read.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wafflecake2 (talk) on 14:24, June 28, 2007 UTC.

Members Only?[edit source]

I think that it should specify if it a members only Mini-Game because I would like to know and I play FTP.

It is members only. I'll add it in now. Ssj metroid 01:24, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Castle wars trader[edit source]

There is nothing about the trader in castle wars, only prizes. No names...

Arrows[edit source]

Do you get them back?

No. You do not if you do not pick them up that is. C.ChiamTalk Calebchiam 13:14, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
Well, some will break anyway. Rollback crown.svg Kudos 2 U Talk! Edit count! Contribs! 13:15, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
You CAN though, have Lanthus enchant your cape by bringing him Ava's Accumulator. He does what Nomad does in Soul Wars to it! The Mistress of Poison 20:55, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Positions[edit source]

Are these official positions, or are they just names for people that do those things that somebody made up... if we're going to have them here, can someone please clarify. Dragon platebody.png Mythik Bandos godsword.png 23:20, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

They're player made. As far as I know, only Barbarian Assault has official positions. Dtm142 20:22, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

This section is still woefully disorganised compared to the rest of the article. Perhaps a table is in order to get things looking more clean, or considering the other similar sections perhaps it should be scrapped altogether.Spikkle 23:38, May 13, 2010 (UTC)

Done! 222 talk 01:33, May 16, 2010 (UTC)

"Take-From"[edit source]

You can take the flag with this option. The "Take-from" option is available when a player from your team is in control of the enemy flag. But the player you're taking from needs to wear the flag for 5 minutes before you can take it. If a player is in position of having the flag for longer then 5 minutes, he probably doesn't know what he's doing, or just messing around. by Ultralon4

Skill capes[edit source]

I know this seems unlikely, but I remember a loooong time ago I played against some guys who had on skill capes in Castle Wars instead of the default Saradomin or Zamorak capes. I realize this is highly unlikely, but just wondering if anyone else seen something like it? Shafez

They got in by Noclip glitching. It's when a player can walk through wall and such.

go to youtube and write:castle wars noclip

Grammar?[edit source]

In the trivia section I found this sentence "Players were once able to drop their into there teams respawn room." It doesn't make much sense if someone knows what they mean please correct it it's near the bottom! 01:05, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

He/she means that there was a time, that players of Saradomin/Zamorak could drop their own flag into their own respawn room, so the enemy couldn't get the flag. I don't know if its true though. 08:23, July 19, 2010 (UTC) by Ultralon4

Ultralon4: I think you are right, the best way to use this strategy was to put it in the third level room behind the wall. Anchients and other people would protect it. Usually it took a higher level or someone thats sneaky to retrieve the flag.

Castle Wars were a big part of the game back in the day. I am starting a clan to "rejuvenate castle wars". Any questions PM me at skillakiler. 06:54, April 2, 2014 (UTC)skillakiler

Barricades[edit source]

Like the article says, I have noticed that some people randomly attack the barriers that will prevent the other team from making a quick escape from the fourth floor of our castle with the flag. When I first saw this, I simply thought that they wanted to go downstairs, but once the barrier was gone, they just went back to their spot on the far corner of the roof (really useful, huh?). It seems like they either want to sabotage the team or their macho pride makes them think that they shouldn't have to have barriers because they can 1-hit anybody.

Nice Picture[edit source]

I'd just like to say that the first picture on the article of the outside of the lobby is awesome, with emphasis on the awe. I would like to know if it was taken with the Orb of Occulus, though I suspect it was.  Golden warpriest of Zamorak helm.png Wingcap Firemaking master cape.png 22:44, March 5, 2010 (UTC)

Split[edit source]

Could some parts of the article especially the Tactics section be split off. That way they could be expanded without making the article too long. 222 talk 05:50, March 14, 2010 (UTC)

Done (read RS:BB) 222 talk 06:39, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

Update Help[edit source]

Hey, if anyone could, please help me format the page to reflect the new changes. Also, anyone that could create a few good articles for the new items, please do so! Thanks a ton! The Mistress of Poison 20:53, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

I have the Castle Wars page updated in the rewards section with all the new items. All I need now are pages for the rewards! The Mistress of Poison 20:53, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Hey! Thanks to everyone who made more of the item pages! Good work! The Mistress of Poison 22:17, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

AMG Nolifer![edit source]

Looked at the highscores for cw and the top guy has 15,073 games and if each game last for 20 mins that's 301460 mins or 5024.33333 hours or 209.347222 days of total play time!!! Someone needs a life! OMG! Full Slayer Helmet! Evil1888 Talk A's L Dragon Platebody! 02:31, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

And you felt you needed to tell us that because...? Sure, it's a lot but you wouldn't consider yourself a nolifer if it was you with all those games. I think you would consider yourself pretty awesome to be one of only 36 people in the world to be ranked #1 in a skill/activity. Think about it.

Might of Saradomin[edit source]

What does it mean by someone having the wrath of zamorak or the might of saradomin? Fishing P N Ranged 16:22, May 28, 2010 (UTC)

I think that means the player has the opposite flag. IPADDRESS is the wrath of Zamorak! = IPADDRESS would have the Saradomin standard and is trying to get a point for the team. 16:48, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
Makes sense now Fishing P N Ranged 16:53, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
Ok i got the flag and it didnt do it, so i guess its something else? Fishing P N Ranged 16:21, May 29, 2010 (UTC)
Might be most kills.Noobsrus 18:19, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
I think it's displayed is the player reaches a certain killstreak.
It's when the player has reached a 10 kill streak.
i never touched the flag, i got it once. i think it is for a ten kill streak.
CONFIRMED - 10 kills in one life will cause these announcements. Not sure if there are any ones for higher killstreaks.

Catapult[edit source]

I'm pretty sure the new KB page says that you can't damage your own team, even without the quest. Did JaGEx slip up, or do we need to change our page? Rune longsword.png CPLstone Talk HS Rune kiteshield.png 01:37, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

33 days strait constant wins to get all profound armor!! imposible!

as imposible as it seems, if you space it out a year or so you can get it. I've seen plenty of higher lvls characters have it. Though i'll admit...I'll never get it. God vivec1 07:35, June 26, 2011 (UTC)

Humidify[edit source]

Anyone know if it still works in this minigame? It worked the last time I went, but that was before it had updated all the rewards and what not. I just want to try and get something accomplished as well as get tickets. Shadow silk hood.png Elysian Aura Lord marshal cap.png 19:56, February 21, 2011 (UTC)

Wont let me train crafting at the chest after update[edit source]

Wont let me train skills at the chest after the update?

I logged in after the update and i could no longer cut any gems there, it just said something along the lines of "You didnt come here to do that", i guess its like that for all skills now so just informing you guys that you cant cut gems in there anymore and i presume its the same for herb, fletch etc

This is false.

The cw chest bank was disabled for a short period but was enabled shortly after. Trimmed Completionist CapeRSJohnCompletionist cape (t) equipped.png 02:08, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

How many games?[edit source]

How do I find out how many CW games I've played?

I spoke to Lanthus but he does not have that info. I checked the Comp Cape at Varrock Museum but it doesn't list Trimmed requirements since I don't have Comp Cape yet. I'm trying to keep track of Comp Cape/Trimmed Comp Cape requirements and set goals. IntrepidX 10:16, March 28, 2012 (UTC)

I think you can just trade the guy, and click on the proffesional cape; it should then tell you in the chatbox how many games you've played 08:54, April 3, 2012 (UTC)

Guthix portal bloom glitch[edit source]

Hey I was trying out the new bloom option that I got and I went to Castle Wars when I noticed that the Guthix portal was a light-blue color, similar to the Saradomin portal. So, I went onto the Castle Wars page here to put it in, but it was already in and claimed that it had been fixed! This message was written on Halloween 2012. By the way, you may not see it, but I do :oJake 00:50, November 1, 2012 (UTC)Rundazekrom

Tickets[edit source]

The FAQ states that golden tickets in your inventory are now equal to a tie in cwars. So if you have 1.1k tickets does that equal to 1.1k games played? So if you had 500 tickets you can pick up the 500 games played cape? 17:43, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
