There are some players who seek to earn everything alone. These individuals are brave, committed, and fearless. They have hearts of iron and the will of a thousand souls. They go by many names, but most know them simply as Ironmen... by the way.
Ironman and Ultimate Ironman were released on October 13th 2014. It was a groundbreaking moment, influenced by player-made modes of playing. Hardcore Ironman was released on November 10th 2016, and brought with it amazing achievements, lots of close calls, and countless tragic deaths.
The next development of Ironman will allow fearless heroes to fight alongside each other... with the release of Group Ironman.
- What is Group Ironman?
As a fresh Group Ironman you'll be able to join a group of two to five players. You and your group will earn your items and supplies together, without trading with any other players.
Everyone will be on a fresh playing field with the release of Group Ironman. Four different HiScore races will begin at once! Each group size will have their own HiScores table.
If you've chosen to be a Group Ironman you'll be placed in a penned off area upon completion of the tutorial. Here, similar to Barbarian Assault, you'll find other potential members of your group.
The more people there are, the easier it is to gather items and achieve goals. Your group can always increase in size (up to five players), but cannot decrease. We don't want players to gain an advantage with a bigger group and then move down to a more competitive bracket.
With the proposed clan system, each group will have their own secure chat channel separate from the existing channels.
Each group will have a group leader. The group leader will have the power to initiate a vote to remove someone from the group. In the event of a tie, the group leader will decide the outcome. If you are removed from the group you will remain a Group Ironman but will have to recruit more members to your own newly-formed group.
- Why should you play Group Ironman?
A lot of you have told us that you'd love to play with your group of friends! The game mode lends itself to a whole host of new strategies which aren't possible in any of the other Ironman modes.
Delegate the workload. One person can be the potionmaster of the group, another can craft all the jewellery, someone else can train Slayer to obtain powerful weapons, all while somebody else is cooking food for the group!
