Runescape - OFFICIAL THREAD





OwneR
OMG I hate that game i think its a waste of time for all of you who play runescape get a life and i mean why pay for runescape make your own game start learning scripting languages and image design i mean my friends making his own game with way better graphics then runescape and it will be funner to play but i wont be on it 24/7 like you runescape addicts thats just a boring game i mean like its fun in the beginning but eventually it just gets boring because its so easy what do you guys think about runescape ?
WickedGravity
This is a game.

We have a games forum.

Connection made.

Moved.

I've never played this so called Runescape, so I think you are/were more addicted to it than I am, hehe

OwneR
Wow i only got to level 67 and i got bored and quit i gave my character to my friend though because i dont know just because . .
vnt87
lol I only got to lvl 7 before quitting.
What amazes me about runescape is its popularity. I cant understand why people could spend hours in that game, the graphic is ugly and the gameplay is nothing outstanding. My eyes still hurt from playing that games, althought I only played a couple of hours.

Please say your a member

God only knows how much I hated that game! I have this nooby group of people at school that are like "OMG TELL ME HOW TO GET A RUNE PLATE!" or "CAN YOU MAKE ME SOME ARMOUR?"! Its a frickn game made for 3rd graders that college aged people play cuz they have nothing better to do!
nakamaru
I like it a little. It's a good waste of time and it gets rid of bordom.
OwneR
OMG Man for me it makes me more bored its just a stupid game they should have never made it its a waste of time waste of money if you are a member and you cant do anything fun on it its way to easy to do stuff and its still stupid and non-stop noobs were begging me for crap omfg that was so annoying
bdoneck
Hey man, thats your opinion that its a bad game.

What you think is bad could be great to another person.

I think that Runescape is a great time waster...though i havent played in years, so I wouldn't know if it is different now.
HalfBrian
I actually love it because it is very FUN, but I agree it doesn't have great GRAPHICS, kinda like the old NES. It is my favorite console, but has the worst graphics, but people spent time on a story rather than designing 3D models and sticking them in a random place and calling it a game.
nntien
Thank to all of you!

I got to like level 3, and quit. I couldn't stand it. The gameplay is boring, the graphics are boring and choppy.

I played a text-based game (MUD) for about a year on the other hand, and I loved that. So I'm not just into graphics. This game was fun.
Intoxicated
MUD? LOL sorry... i just cant stand that game... infact, cant stand any text based games, and bad graphics aint that interesting either.

although, MU Online has good graphics, and is fun, there is no reason to become good....most games need more thought into that aspect.
Neus
i used to play RS... before it got so fregin populated... it used to be quite a fun game, sure its graphics wernt the "best" Wink but it was fun enough... but as the time went on, more and more annoying idiots joined and the community just started to suck

example:

newbzantator1248: DUZORS!! YOuzA SO AWe1ZOME!!!
newbzantator1248: G1V3 me MonEYS! PLZZZ !! PLZZZ
newbzantator1248: PLZZZ PLLZZZ PLZZ PLZZZ
me: ****logoff****

Wink

then they started the whole rs2 thing and the community just got worse.. plus i had hit lvl 74... 80... i forget... somewhere in that range... and had done pretty much everything the game had to offer (yeh i was a member for quite a bit too, and had done all the members quests up to that date)

anyways, was fun while it lasted...

and i dont mind text based games... specially text based stratigies.. i find them quite fun Wink you know, make tons of money with your country, launch some nukes and full out assualts on your friends when you know their armies arnt at their base... stuff like that Wink (playteq is funnnn Wink)
Lord Klorel
I play runescape on a regular basis and i love it. Of course the graphics are not great, but what do you expect a game that overflows from perfect graphics. The servers of runescape can not endure that, there are more 60.000 players almost everyday and see the servers can that.
So Runescape is the best for cracking time.
Let Runescape excist and play when you want.
If you not interested in this, then don't read it.
FireFoxDB
It's fun in the beginning but when you're not member it's boring after you did all the quests.

Anyone knows a good txt-based game?
Or you guys should play GunZ Online International: The Duel Bèta

Design you're own character and slay or kill each other with weapons and swords.

It's very cool
Revo-X
I agree that GunZ is good.
I agree that Runescape is bad.
What more can I say?
I got to lvl 40 in Runescape, when I was in Primary 5 ( that was when I was 11 ) And I quit finding it "challengeless". But I do like the crafting system... But they could made it more complex like Renewal's. All in all 2/10 for RS. 8.5/10 for gunz. ^_^

--What amazes me about runescape is its popularity.

--Thats JageX at work. The game was designed from the ground up to be addictive.

--I cant understand why people could spend hours in that game

-- Once again JageX.

--the graphic is ugly

--Best you can get browser based

I'm not trying to stand up for the game.. I'm just explaining the logical reasons for your questions.
Firebolt
I have played runescape and i have a lvl 56 character but i finially realized that what is the dam point of playing it there is nothing to do unless your a member and when you become one your paying about as much as world of warcraft costs and world of warcraft is about million times better.

And the i have a friend that playes it all the time and ive worked out that he has payed them over $300!!! you can do allot with that money.

But the most bothering thing I can think of is that you do the same bloody thing over and over and over everyday and and eventually after 5 years of playing so hard every day you go look at me im soooo good at it ive got a dragon full and a santa hat!!!!

And you will look back when your a bit older and say "Ive wasted my life"
salman_500
well i think runescape is good. but i think is the best massive online multiplayer game. i dont know about any other so maybe that is y i like it but im a a total addict. its seems fun somtimesand boring at other. it is good for time pass.
seanko
It can be fun when you go up to some noobs and u say u gonna give then full iron and u dont, (u go to the general store and sell all they're stuff) then
drop trade the money u earned.

It works best when ur @ lvl 40!
seanko
make a bad noob account (works better when u have a girl account) and go up 2 people and ask them 2 help u.

they should say "what do u need help with", then say: "If u give me armor i will be ur girlfriend."

if they say no then try about 5-10 times.

once i got lucky and someone gave me a mith hatchet and full steel!!!

another great trick is to take off all ur armour and say u got scammed.

i got 20k once!
(recommended 2 be @ least lvl 40)
Revo-X
Ew... I hate scammers. They are born-losers low lifes. ZzzZzz. Runescape is so stupid. I mean, where are these features? :
- Party
- Stats lvlling ( i hate their style of stats lvlling )
- Storyline ( where the hell is it?! )
- Guild
- Rares ( I mean... All items are like so NOT RARE unless it's an event item )
- Skills ( WHERE THE HELL ARE THE SPECIAL SKILLS THAT ONLY CERTAIN CLASS CAN OWN?! )

They lack too many things for me to state.
Zaxus
Its not a bad game, but it gets lame after a short time. And there are so many n00bs and annoying people it totally ruins the game. To me its also a sorta "sissy RPG" cause it lacks the features of a real RPG. Like:

Weapon Skills - Dagger skills, Sword Skills, etc.
Ranks/Classes - Knights, Necromancers, Wanderer, Archer
Rank/Class Only stats/weapons/skills/quests
Lag - Especially on slow computers
The time it takes to do ANYTHING - Mining, woodcutting, etc.
The time investment required to do ANYTHING GOOD

Changes to these and MAYBE id play it again.
disturbated
I can't believe how many topics about runescape are on this forum. Personally, I don't think runescape deserves just one thread let-alone 17...

Wow... 17?!?!
Well, I read somwhere that Runescape takes up something like 1/8 of the world MMORPG players. But I still prefer games like Diablo or FFO.

-- Party

-- Runescape wouldn't really work (doesn't anyway) with a party feature..sorry.

-- Stats leveling

-- their stats levelling style isn't actually bad.. and the amount of skills that have is excellent.

--Storyline

-- A browser based RPG doesn't need a storyline. Its web based fun for everyone!! Wink

--Guild

--Gotta agree here. I find JageX's lack of an inbuilt guild feature in such a large game rather disturbing.

--Rares

--Sorry.. Can't see your point, there are rares..
xorcist
I still play runescpae once in a while. I get bored of it sometimes but its not that boring. They basically they get there money from people who buy members but I would never give them money to play a game. They have to many autoers and other things out there these days.
headless
i agree that runescape is a waste of time. at the beggining of the year, nearly everyone in my school was playin it. i really dont get runscape. you walk around, you destroy stuff ( i think), and u collect stuff and money. fun, fun, fun. NOT!
bkatz
I dont really agree. Even though the graphics suck and some people hate it for that, its really a good game once you get higher leveled. Gameplay pwns graphics. Laughing The PvP part is good also.

What I meant as "Rares" are... Items that you can get ONLY from fighting monsters. I.E. in MUonline, you must hunt for Bless, Souls and Chaos.

All games should have a storyline. A storyline of how this thingy came about and what are the people in runescape fighting for. Blablabla. There's a point in a story.

With a party feature, people can share exp.

More things runescape lacks:
- Where in the world is the upgrade system?! I.E. +1 Rune Sword, +3 Rune Armour, etc.

- Where in the world is the " fight together " system!? I mean, fine, they are preventing KS-ing. But really, if we can fight together, it would be more fun!
tyxl
i play it
i got 1500 ttl+ (tyxl_be)
but i play less every day. So i might quit in a few weeks.
TheBeekeepers
I used to play Runescape, but recently quit.. again. OK, so I still play on occasion, but that's mostly to keep in touch with my friends. Yes, it can be rather fun at the beggining, but it becomes very repetitive later on. The 'noobs' and scammers and such were really annoying, but it is a bit better in the member worlds. It also takes too long to level up, and the combat system is very static. Overall, the game can be fun for a while, but isn't worth the amount of time(and money if you become a member) to make a decent character.

I got to level 86 with a total level of 1264, and played for about 9 months(Arengeir).
BulletProof
runescape is fun for like ages 10 and under prolly...but for ppl over like 13 its crap...thats what i think...runescape is really a waste of time for me... like if ur gonna play ruenscape y not just dowload Lineage 2..that game is like 100 times better then runescape...
5C1
long time no play this game..
yea gunz is good but de server always full~ hard to get in de server~
mii owns ya
runescape its cool-.-
i have a lvl 45 pure mii owns ya
my main got hacker hi whas lvl 80
but runescape its funny
Kaisonic
Runescape is pretty neat, I have to admit. I was playing way back in the day, when it was first invented and I still had dial-up and a 200 mhz Pentium I. God that was horrible! But then I finally got a decent comp and DSL, but then it was all screwed up. Like language filters and crap, I forget what else was messed up. I stopped playing for a while after that, but then I went back and took a look after the big update (the 3D characters and stuff) It looks pretty cool now, but I just haven't the time to play it (as a matter of fact, I haven't had a lot of time to play a lot of the video games I want to play. Man this sucks! I don't like school!)
murray732
I quit playing like a year ago...the only reason I played it though was because all my friends played haha Laughing I didn't really do much other then make money..I'd chop yew trees and sell them...then my friends would always ask me for money haha Very Happy After I quit though I started to play diablo, any of you guys play that game??...it's pretty fun if you have friends that play with you!! Smile
n0obie4life
Made official.
thefluffyhamster
Runescape is a really good game, with good ideas and programed well. I played it a lot, back when it was still runescape classic.

I don't play it anymore because theres nothing new things worth while for me to do, and eventually, jagex will add in so much new content in, and then the game will break and just be a massive mess.
decimi
RuneScape is so stupid.

Runescape is for n00bs. Its really, really a bad game with bad graphics and bad gameplay and bad sounds. PLay GunZ or MapleStory. That are the real MMORPG's. Not that bad stupid game Exclamation

Thats it. hehe

Have any of you looked at how many sites have these "How I made $100,000,000 off my level 3 noob" e-books on the internet? Its kinda whack! Its probably all BS or common sense. plus they make 100% profit off the deal so its stupid.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Anyone whos played long enough knows these things:
1. Runescape does not cost unless you want extra features and you can create as many accounts as you want for the free version of the game.
2. You are saying anyone who plays runescape needs a life? do you know any of us in real life? no. exactly Laughing. Also, who says we are on 24/7? I only play about an hour a day and im still high leveled.
3. Easy? No way, theres so much to do and many hard battles to fight, plus the wilderness where other people can kill you. its only easy if you stay at the lower levels forever.
thefluffyhamster
runescape takes life away from people, i have a friend who thought it was rubbish, played it a bit, and now hes spending every single bit of time he has on it.

he went crazy because of the fact that he had to go on holiday and would be without internet for 2 weeks

lol, it is addicting but its just addicting like any other game...i havent had a problem with going out side or anything lol.

I hate this game, too addictive -.-

Im 90 combat and 85 mage tho so i really cant talk Embarassed Neutral
thefluffyhamster
u have got to say that theres somthing about runescape that makes it even more addicting than other games
alchie0
i played runescape for about half a year. now i've moved onto dark age of camelot. firstly...the graphics aren't very good. secondly...the plot isnt that great. I think a good game consists of this:
1) Good graphics
2) Good Plot
3) Quick paced (no boring leveling)
4) Friendly community

Now im not meaning to be mean...but runescape pretty much lacks all of it. Especially the quick pace and community. I think all you scapers could at least try another game...(a good one like www.darkageofcamelot.com ) and then make your minds up about 'runescape being the best game ever'.

I started playing runescape in 2001 right when it started getting popular. I pvped against Bluerose13x once. Very Happy

Since this is the RuneScape forum, I figured I'd ask this question here.

Whenever I play the game, everything looks to run fine. But what's really weird is that it skips every few seconds. It runs normally, freezes for a second, fast forwards through that second skipped and runs normally again. It repeats that like every few seconds. Not only that, my input seems to be delayed. I click somewhere to walk there and it takes a good 5 seconds for it to compute. Same with clicking things in my inventory and stuff. And typing is horrible. It responds fine for a second, skips, and takes forever to show what I typed. It's really annoying. Anyone else having this problem? I would ask at the RuneScape forums but they only allow member to post there.
JLC
there is another program running that is slowing down Java. Or your internet connection is being used by another aplication.
lockwolf
I would sell my runescape account but nobody here would want to buy it and it wouldnt be for frih$.
zoombinimatt
i used to play it... about 5 years ago... but not much as i had a crap internet connection.

a much better game in my opinion is anarchy online. its also free. it has good graphics. not amazing like doom3 or anything, but good. it is an 800 mb dowmload, and has some problems with older computers, but its a much better game.

im just confused as to why runescape is still around... and why so many people play it. although i have to admit the game tibia is even worse.
garvalf4
runescape is good because it runs through java, allowing to play not only on ms windows.
But I must admit games such as guild wars are nicer, it's just a pity they are tied to directx and windows. I'm sure their servers are even running on unix, and not windows...
They'd use opengl the port would be easier.

I played it. Such a waste of time! The graphics are bad, and you have to pay for everything that is fun.
danglyballs
i played runescape but its bores me now, it becomes very repetitive. but if a company made a game that was amazing graphics and the same basis of runescape they would make so much money. dont u fink?
it wold be like elderscrolls but even bigger and millions of online players. Actually thinking about it, final fantasy is like that but 1 thing i hate is the, select an action, then it does it. I want to control my player! not select a crappy move! AAAAAAHHHHHHH

Introduction

Welcome to RuneScape and welcome to Tip.it - RuneScape Tips. RuneScape is a Massive Multiplayer Online Adventure Game. RuneScape has many features... there are hundreds of monsters to kill, quests to complete, lands to explore and treasure to be found, but the most interesting thing about RuneScape compared to most games is that you are playing alongside and interacting with real people playing RuneScape around the world at the same time as you.

So, get started by clicking the new account button on the RuneScape.com mainpage and signing up. Be sure to choose your name wisely, as this is what people will know you as in-game, and you can't change it. Try to avoid names with numbers - you'll regret choosing Luke9184576, trust me.

Once you've signed up, click the play game link, select what detail level you want to load the game on (depending on your computer and internet connection) choose a world (they're all the same, but choose one that's geographically close to you) and then log in with your username and password. Choose how your character will look, and you'll begin Tutorial Island. This is fairly self explanatory, and will teach you the basics of the game.

Once you've finished Tutorial Island, you'll be 'released' into the big wide world. This is the step at which many people stumble, but you have an added advantage compared to all them - you've already discovered Tip.it!

Tip.it is a RuneScape fan site that's devoted to bringing you the most up to date information and the best guides, tips and maps for RuneScape on the web. Whenever you're stuck on something or want to know anything about RuneScape, be sure to read the Tip.it guides, and most likely you'll find your answer. If not, sign up for the Tip.it Forums and other RuneScape players who use Tip.it will be able to answer your questions. So you're in the world of RuneScape, wandering in the woods and checking out the castles... so what next? Read on to find out!

a nice guild Smile

I've played RuneScape for a time...
I loved it, but i stopped it, when i saw anothers games like PristonTale, WoW or Everquest, i see what RuneScape is: Trash
But RuneScape is cool for that players that don't have good PC...

I got to level 7 then I think it's a waste of time. I can probably make a better RPG than that. Even though it might not be 3D but still, probably better contend, set up, lay out, weapons, technology...

The game has a great potential, but worked out poorly. They could make it a great game, but it isn't. It could have been so much more.

Runescape is not such a bad game as some people say... It's graphics are not that good, but there are quests, lots of people and lots of things to do... Some people seriously are too critistic ( in a bad way ) and i have this to say... If you think runescape has bad graphics, y do peeps play D&D? they dont' even have graphics! lol... it's okay... basically, the creator of the game make it for poor kids... he even said so himself, so for peeps who aren't aloud to buy games and are looking for a temporary game to play, try it (http://www.runescape.com) and don't critisie it too much... ;p
Qwertyip
Lol, most of you say it's a great time waster... maybe thats because you've all got time to waste.. you cant find something better to do?

I used to play it .. then i got bored of it ... Then played it agen .. now an bored of it agen ... and most likely one day .. i'll have time to waste and i'll play it agen lol.
Dustinin
All MMORPG are a waste of time, but rs is free. Theirfore RS is a free waste of time. As compared to world of warcraft being a $20/month waste of time.


I do play runescape, and i rock at it.


However i play alot more shooting games like battlefield, usually only play runescape when i am doing homework. Its fairly destracting, but its still possible to get my work done Razz

I also used to play Parallel Universe, MSWars, Ultimate Dominion(worst staff in gaming histroy) and Land of Nevard(worst coding in gaming history lol). I played a whole bunch more I've forgotten....Ultimate Dominion is like Runescape and I was level 218 there(yeah, I was h15 1337n355 Razz)

If you play any, send me a message, so that we could team up or so I could pwn hehe

I played RS for ages, I am only 13 so you can understand, but eventualy it gets boring. The thing I liked about it all was basicaly the smithing armour and making money. I'm a level 82 now, and I go on for like half an hour every month just to see any new updates. It's very addictive and I reccomend anyone not to start playing on it, if you want to game online. Buy something like Call of Duty or Counterstrike, don't go on the crappy 'un-1337' Runescape. You just waste your time and sometimes money, it seems ok at the start. Everything seems ok at the start though, doesn't it?
hanay
I concur, runescape sucks.

I used to play that game all the time. But then i started to get tired of it. After i completed the first part i was starting to give up. I did not find it very interesting anymore, plus i am too busy with other things.
Motoracer380
yeah i play this...im a level 50 miner.. but i want level 60 to get into the mining guild... but im not like one of those addicts.. im only a level 40 overall... most of the guys i see now are like level 70 and up.. thats rediculouse.. it takes me like 2 weeks to go up 2 levels because i hardly play.. and my account is over a year old. But if you only play it as much as i do.. it's fun
Motoracer380
almost forgot to mention for all who like runescape its really just a cheap copy of world of war craft.. so go buy that and play it online for 12 bucks a month.. it's WAY better.

I used to play that game ALL THE TIME and I hate it now. Kids don't waste your time on that please...

Lol, runescape... I've played that for years in the past, but it became so absolutely boring. Especially once I got cable and started to play better games. The graphics are just absolutely horrible, the features which it offers lack just about everything which you would expect from an mmo and the clicking... omg, it just started to drive me completely nuts Razz.

Thinking back to it I can't understand how I even managed to play it for 2 years, hehe.
aerialdreams
Hah, I started playing Runescape one day when I was really bored, but playing it just made me more bored... I don't think I even got through lvl 1 before I stopped... -_-;

I started playing runescape online because i can't play any good games in my computer. So i play it whenever i'm online.

How could runescape be a copy of World of Warcraft? Runescape was earlier released.

i play runescape one time but i dont have patience for this game.
cheatonmaps
yea, i used to like runescape, but theres no point in it. its just a couple of people who want to make money. Its a total waste in time. thers such better games out there than this. The graphics suck, theres no story, and unless you pay for it, theres nothing to do.
Warom
Runescape is evil!!!!

it made my best m8 stick to his pc for hours on end. it sucks out the beauty of life by keeping every1 inside.

im scared of that game... Crying or Very sad
Jazz
I absolutely HATE runescape it is so rubbish. It is really good when you start but then it gradually gets more boring until you get more bored than you originally was too start off.
benwhite
It was okay when you start because the quests were doable and the interaction with high levels wasn't too high. It was moderately fun to develop some skills. After the quests were done, the only thing to do was make money and buy better equipment. It quickly became unworth it. It was alright , but I played around 6 years ago.
bhmklan
Runescape is fun, until you r rich, wants your rich, you start to pk, after you get ambushed at least 100 times by noob clans, you get pissed off and angery and you start to scam, after you become WAY rich from scamming and steal 50 acconunts. You geet bored, and thats when u quit. So ya runescape is a big waste of time, however its fun while you play it, so all who r playing it should enjoy it
bigtwballer
i play rs in my off time i love it, who cares if the graphics arent that great its free!!!!!!

i make so much real money by selling off millions on ebay.

not a waste of time for me Laughing
darkdante
lol I only got to lvl 7 before quitting.
What amazes me about runescape is its popularity. I cant understand why people could spend hours in that game, the graphic is ugly and the gameplay is nothing outstanding. My eyes still hurt from playing that games, althought I only played a couple of hours.

Because graphics aren't everything! It's a fun game, and most importantly, it doesn't cost $20-30 a freakin' month to play. It's free or only $5 a month to play.

And it's written in Java. For it's language, it is a MASTERPIECE.

Why not rename this thread to "RuneScape - OFFICIAL Bashing Thread."

If you don't like it, don't post here! Simple as that.

i did play runescape, log time ago, and i did play it for to long time, ywa, it was just waste of time, when i did reach lev 20, the best thing was to fight some gay wizzards, bah, and the wildenes, come on give me a chance. i go out, find a monster, get attacked by another guy, chase him because he is for frigtent, that he ran into a monster, die, i kill it and would have got his stuff if he not only did walk with 3 things on him, i know it got alot of updates, but its crap, you people as play runescape, try world of warcraft (no dont, it cost to much, and its not that much worth) Line age 2, just get the game, fi nd a free host, and, its pretty good grafik, it also got a new update.

so the very bad 3d runescape, stop it, play something like l2 and wow

question of the year, when would 4d arrive

question of this week, when would we get cs server.

answear of the week, go to the leader, not the webmarster

This Is My Opinion Of Runescape And MU

Runescape Is Basically A Wack Game With 2D Bad Graphics.. I Play MapleStory .. 2D MMORPG... Way Better Graphics, Story Mode, Concept Everything Is Better Then Runescape.... I Think I Was Level 4 .. Then I Quit.. Graphics Sucked A**.

MU Is Basically A Alright Game.. It Doesnt Suck Because It Has Really Good Graphics.. Only Thing That Sucks About MU Is That The Way The Map Is.. Cmon Coordinates.. Really Wack.
Yjaxygames
It's not always fair in the wildy. Because people with a high ranging level don't have a high combat level. So the people that are good at ranging can kill someone of the same combat level easily. And when internet is laggy, you don't have enough time to respond to something and you die.
TidusX2027
I played Runscape be4, Mu is better yeah but the map is weird
zeebo323
Runescape is sad... I hate that damn game more than anything. World of Warcraft owns it hard.
For a free game I guess its a time-passer, but its just a waste of time. The members get so much of an advantage and the controls are really awkward, graphics are pretty crappy.
But then again, it IS a free game. Oh well. I say go out and pay for a quality game instead of wasting time on games like this.
llsanderll
I have a lvl 117 character, but stopped playing a couple of months ago.

I agree: it is a waste of time

Graphics are lazy, moderators are not friendly, players are most unfriendly i ever saw (how the **** do they do that?!)
Havfunonline
Personally, I am addicted to the game, I moderate on a fansite. The game its elf, is very boring, but very addictive, and I do enjoy playing. I moderate on a the biggest fansite around (http://runehq.com) and it has more than 200,000 regular users. How Runescape have achieved such popularity is incredible. They have about 3million seperate members now, more than any other internet game. The link with mini-clip.com has boosted funds and members by loads, but has also filled the place with rubbish people with no idea how to play the game, who annoy everyone. No matter.

That's a bit obvious, isn't it? If people see the game 'runescape' on miniclip, they just click on it, because they want to play the game. But they don't know what the game exactly is. So they register, and don't know anything about the game.

lol i used to play runescape too....but once i got to like lvl 25 it got so boring and i quit, then i started playing lineage 2 and stopped that on lvl 67 then i was about to start playing guild wars when i said to myself why play these games when i always quit them and they get boring so ya now i moslty play americas army which is a first person shooter game and i also play counter strike 1.6 and counter strike source which are also first person shooter games...so ya im like more of a first person shooter gamer since those games are fast rounds and really addicting and fun, so ya...

Runescape resulted in me failing 8th grade. It was my very first MMORPG and I have many memorys of exploring the map. Now the map is over 6 times larger with like a million diffrent things. Now everyone plays WoW, which is like runescape for big boys.

Runescape is basicaly only a good game if your a member and have lots of money and friends. Otherwise it is very boring, the only thing I like is the fact you can mine, ect...

Classic runescape was the best game ever. Me and my buddies played all day long back in the day. Then The new version came out and we thought it was gonna be great. We transfered all of our stuff to the new game. We didnt like it m uch, but we forgot to transfer our stuff back. MY character got locked on the gay one. Now you have to even pay for classic, which is the biggest load of all time. WE WANT CLASSIC BACK!

Classic sucks. The graphics are even worser than Runescape 2, the interface is not good, and it's only for members.

I start playing runescape every few years when I get bored. But the gain becomes repeative real fast and unless you are willing to pay.

I just could bring myself to pay $5 for it.

Every time I start the game nothing has changed.

I don't think it sucks I just don't think it is worth $5.
Empire
ofmg I h8 rs... I used to play it 24/7 and I got up to lvl 126 over 1,000,000,000 gp complete rune armor completed every quest had the ability to enter every guild. over lvl 100 in every skill I donated over 3,000 hours or more to that game.


...


But then I just got bored... there was nothing more 2 do. I thought I could make a new guy to make the game "fresh" again. before I got 2 lvl 2 I quit. Now I h8 it. It's such a sucky time waster...
Jat Goodwin
i play rs, but for one reson, i look at the other mmorpgs and im like, i have to do all this comlicated sining up and theres like 3 people plaing it, go over to rs, oh, 70,000 people playing. I think ill play this. I also like the part about there being a society, anybody under the lvl 60 and your a noob. but the thing is you have to have paitence. you need like 40+ in like 7 stats to realy have fun. so you play for like 4 min and you dont understand it so you quit and bash the game whenever you see somone say runescape. just say i played it and i didnt like it. simple.

it's not just runescape a waste of time all games are Smile and yes i do play Smile) but personaly i think that the graphics of the game make's it appalling sorry fans , my friend even has an "alliance" in the game Smile

well to me it's a waste of time... think what u want... but u know I'm right! lol
Frag
Its a waste of internet Bandwidth, a waste of peoples time, and it should be taken off of the web. When I was about 12 I played this game really when it first came, out an for one reason, because it was actually at the top of the pile on graphics at that time for mmorpgs. But that was years ago, now people playing it should be ashamed, only if you have the worst pc ever like a pentium 2 should you be playing this game. If you have a good pc and are playing this game, some advice go out and get a life. Whenever my brother tries to play this game I start uploading so its unbearable to play for him as I dont want him to ruin himself so much.

Stop playing it now, oh an if you paying for it you need mental help Twisted Evil

You thrown your life away if you got past lv 10 or if you had the time to actually create an account.

I've played it like 3 times.....
You know how slow that freaking game is!
The graphics suk sooo much too..
But sometimes it just pulls you in because of the RPG element, although it really gets outta hand when you start paying for the stuff, thats just too far.
I have a friend that pays to play Runescape!
Why not just buy a 50$ game thats got awesome graphics like Halo or something, when your going to pay that much money in like a year.
Soulfire
It's a cheap alternative, $5 a month versus the games that are like $20+ per month. And it's not all about the graphics, the gameplay is catching (at least to me).

Here's a radical new idea, if you don't like RuneScape, then hold your tounge. Unless the administration would like to create a thread "RuneScape Bashing - *OFFICIAL*"

That seems to be all that is going on here.

Runescape is fun in the beginning, but when you play it (about every 2 days) it will become boring. I've been memmber for a while, but I decided to unsubscribe because i didn't play it for months.
popnbrown
I used to play runescape. My friends and I used to play about a month or two back. We used to compete over stuff. But eventually it got very boring. Cause runescape is like a routine. You do the same thing over and over again. If you liked Runescape, then I suggest you start playing World of Warcraft. it is like runescape but muchh better. I don't play it much I actually program now. but my friend says it is a great game. You do have to pay for World of Warcraft, However if you feel that you will continue to play for a while, then I suggest you do play.
Bobispurple
I used to play runescape. All the ppl I knew played, and we would hang online, but it got really boring and I quit. It was a waste of time anyway. you cant get anthing good done unless you are a member. I was like level 45 before i got hacked. I just sorta gave up around then.

Used to play this game... Graphics are horrible... There are much better games out there than this game...
RPG games are no fun in the long run. Same skins, same gameplay...

I haven't playing games for 2 years... maybe because there no good games at the moment... or maybe I'm too busy.

I play runescape on a regular basis and i love it. Of course the graphics are not great, but what do you expect a game that overflows from perfect graphics. The servers of runescape can not endure that, there are more 60.000 players almost everyday and see the servers can that.
So Runescape is the best for cracking time.
Let Runescape excist and play when you want.
If you not interested in this, then don't read it.

runescape eh? ya ive played it but i eventually moved to my bigboy WOW so now im happy Cool
gothicgeek
Hmmm...I might be more inclined to listen if you made coherant sentences...anyways, Runescape is just a addictive game. The community is really lame, but there's a few cool people around. I got to like level 75 or something, but I was extremely rich, being a merchant . The whole game is one huge economy, remarkably similar to a real economy, as soon as there's money to be made somewhere, people are there. And there are tiers to the economy as well, for instance:

Low levels mine rune essence, which non-member merchants buy at 20 each and sell to member merchants at 30 each, who turn around and sell to high level runecrafters at 40 each.

Much like real life where raw materials are obtained and sold several times at increasing prices until they end up as your coffee machine or whatever.

The skills system...one of its worse points. People spend months of their lives leveling skills which are next to useless. Like a level 99 blacksmith can make almost nothing compared to a smart merchant. I actually knew someone who had level 99 blacksmith and she said all it was good for was bragging rights. And the skills aren't easy to level up either. It's one of the hardest MMORPGs to level skills on.

The n00bs and beggars are actually a source of endless amusement. They will come up saying stuff like

'Plzlz i need sum armor!!!1'
or 'ur hot' followed by 'can i hav $$$'

And they will follow you for like 30 minutes some times. It's kinda creepy. Most of the strangest people I've ever encountered on the internet I met on Runescape...It's almost disturbing how much people will degrade themselves on an internet game.

The forums are very funny as well, people are ALWAYS arguing about some tiny, trivial detail or other. Mages complain about warriors, warriors complain about rangers, and rangers complain about warriors AND mages.

All in all I'd say it's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.

I just like to hack runescape for a number of reason:

1. Its fun
2. To piss off Jagex
3. I'm to lazy to make my own char

Not to mention runescape is a flash game, which runs on memory. Get a Winhack program, glitch the game, edit my account and charecter. Bingo I have a level 100 char with perfect stats, and 1.1 billion dollars or I just hack people like Xzeama who are ranked 1st in all of runescape.

all games are a waste of time really, not just runescape. you dont get anything good out of it. you just lose money by paying to buy it or electricity to play it. some games have a little bit of education in them. runescape teaches alloys and improves math skills if your charactor is a merchant. all games are is entertainment. and without entertainment life would be boring as hell.

Now that I think about it, this game was very addictive because i was like lvl 75 in like 1month of play non-stop, personally i thought that i was gonna be the best but once you get past like lvl 75 in my opinion i think that it takes to long to upgrade to the next levels. And then there are other people always around you that make you look bad cause there way stronger than you are. I thought it was a pretty good game but i dunno i also think that its a waste of time.

I used to play for ahours aday over the summer 2 years ago, but now I think its a huge waste of time, I havent played in a few months because I think that its too childish, and it lacks some features that would be useful, like classes or an easier way to avoid wasting time mining. There are also no interesting ways to make money.

If you have access to the members world, go to Ardounge and enter the
house next to the cake stall. (This door needs a certain theiving level,
if you are not yet of sufficient level go to the opposite house, and train
on the door there and the chest inside.)
When inside the house, to the right of the door is a ladder. Go up this
ladder, and you will see two chests. In the chest farthest away from the
ladder, and nearest the bed is Nature Runes. Keep stealing from the chest
and you will get lots of Nature Runes. At current Runescape prices Nature
Runes are around 100-300gp.
If you are unable to access members world, dont worry. Go north of Falador
untill you rach the mountain. go round the left hand side of the mountain
so that you have the Goblin Viallge on you left. Keep going up untill you
reach the Wilderness. At level 3 Wilderness there is a Dark Wizard spawning
site. Collect runes here and sell them in Falador.

Oh man where do i begin,

Man, dudets, i was addicted when i was 6
i played runescape classic for like 7 years
played rs2 for 2 years,

rsc: 2 red phats lvl 89 char 79qp like 16m
rs2: full d, santa hat (why would you buy a santa hat when its not christmas and it friggin costs 6,000,000) 146qp and tones of runes and all together probably totals like 18m worth of other stuff

I quit and gave to my very badly addicted friend.
My friend from college in holland named:2college
has over 16billions on runescape classic yer, like the other guy said he just got bored.

I started playing when there was good magic and bad magic,
when you could chose if you wanted to be a : warrior, ranger, or mage
it was really funny back in them days the rsc graphics were really bad haha

*sigh* Such an old game... They say runescape three will come out in like 2007... Better be like a billion times better... You know they have assigned objects in their system so they can just programm their chars better and just upload them... Why they don't do it... I have no idea... Also they should make the battling more realistic... seriously it's like your motioning at the guy with a mini sword that suddenly does 14 damage... it's like wow... and when you're running and you are arching and the other guy turns positions while you attacked allready the arrow will curve... :O . Lol ya... pretty wierd.

Like all things there is a period of addiction bordom and frustration... First the game, like all other will be fun and get addicting (no matter the game and no matter the quality.. I dare you to play any game right now how ever crappy a few times.. you will get addicted), but this stage varies very largly... Also then there's the bordom where you've played it so much that you are just bored with it and don't want to play with it anymore... After a frustrating time to find a better game, after a while the game you played will become addicting after a while...

W.e Runescape all in all is a pretty good game, seeing who made it and with their reasources.. which used to be none... Pretty cool. But then again if you get into and are about to by members account, this is just my opinion, but you should'nt.. if you have 10 dollars you should at least buy cs... most computers' can support it... 10 dollars off steam will get you cs 1.6 and COndition Zero (cs=counter strike for the noobies) and you can dl steam (only like 1 MB) at http://steampowered.com HOPE THAT SAID SOMETHING>>> LOL DON"T BUY MEMBERS ON RUNESCAPE>>> Razz

Runescaoe is the most pointless game ever invented, apart from maybe trivial pursuit :@ Its main addictoin is the yearning to become betteer than everyone else, which comes at a cost of losing everything in real life.

Runescape probably isn't the best game for controls, but it is pretty easy to do. It is simple for anyone to move around; all you must to is click where you want to go, and your there! Chatting with other players is real simple too. All you have to do is type what you want to say, and press enter! You don't have to press any buttons, open any menus, or anything else to chat! It is so easy! Also, if you want to see other options, you just right click on an object, and you have a menu to do other things. The only problem I have with the clicking controls is...well they are clicking controls. It gets real boring sometimes just clicking. It would be sort of better to have some more control options.

in my book runescape is a total waste of time the grafics are rubish at best and they expect u to pay for the full game i would rather play somthing like gunz or americas army or even kalonline

runescape get a lower than low 1/10

I play it sometimes. I only raise non-combat skills right now though. It's just something to do in your spare time. Especially during the summer.

Yes, I'll admit it. I play runescape.

I still think that it's basicaly a waste of time, but I find it fun, and what are games for? Fun perhaps...

Anyway, I'm currently in the process of making a game that should be better than runescape anyway. Then I'll play that - but not all day like some crazy people. I actually have a life Very Happy

I'll just give an example of the sadness of some people: new skill is released, 6 days later two people have already got 99 in that skill, yes that's 13 mil exp in 6 days!

Fair point and to be honest I personaly would rather play, what I would class as an "real" MMORPG. I however it does prove popular and can be quite addictive, well very. It doesn't appeal to be a game of skill it is rather a game of experience and you end up using real time on a game. So meanwhile I'll stick with my Final Fantasy games!
ChaosMike
Just to let you guys know (whoever plays it), they added the Construction skill. I don't play it anymore, but for anyone who has members, tell me how it is. SOunds like fun Smile
ninjakannon
OK, I'm a member and I've done the construction skill. If you check the highscores often, as I do, then you would probubly have noticed that two people got 99 construction in 5 days. A week on and 4 people had 99 in construction.

The thing is that you have to be rich - the first player to get 99 was also the richest (has 14 bil), but I wont say the name and they are not first now, people have overtaken them.

The skill is quite good, I got 50 on the first day and then stopped because it is a real money drainer (oh, and I beat zezima to 50!!! he had 48 when I got there Wink) You can build a huge range of things and rooms.

Firstly you change to building mode (or enter your house in building mode) and then things that have not been built will appear in semi-transparent white, you can build things on these "hot-spots". Each room costs money to build and you can have lots, as well as an upstairs and a downstairs. The higher your level, the bigger your house can be.

You can also higher a servant who can take things to the bank and get logs cut into planks - they need to be paid every so often though.

Some things in your house can help you, in the chapel for example, you can offer bones to the alter, you get extra experience for doing this (but not the biggest increace in the game, even for the best alter). You can also make portals in your portal room(s) that teleport you to where ever you set - it costs 100 times the number of runes that you need for the spell to make it though (so 100 laws, 100 fires and 300 airs for varrok teleport). Furthermore, in the study, you can turn the runes needed for spells into tablets (stackable) that will only use 1 space in your inventory. Unfortunatly you get exp only when making these, not when casting the spell. But they will be useful for pking trips (if you take teles, it will save space) and combat training if you have to teleport somewhere. Unfortuantly you can only make certain spells, not all of them.

Phew Shocked I'm not gonna write any more, for details go to http://www.runescape.com and click the knowledge and search "construction" then read all about it!

<EDIT>:
Planks are expensive and it is not easy to gather lots of the materials that you need. This is the challenge for this skill; as well as having enough money. The aim really is to have fun, and to show off your wealth (it even says the wealth part on one of the runescape news anouncments). So it was not designed to help you much in any way.

Although all the graphics are just repeats in a different colour, the music is bad, the graphics are low quality and the storylines are - how shall i put this - umm, interesting... Runescape still has a huge audience and is by far the best java game in the world (or that I have come across anyway).

Do you not agree that if they improved on these small things, RuneScape could be a much better game that it already is?
The thing is that many people will still play it all the same; like me Wink

I played the old runescape, that wasn't even fun, it was just addicting really. Now that I think about it, I dont even know why I ever played it. I just tried so hard to get gold and stuff that I ended up mining all day/ (which for the record, is not fun at all)

Once the new one came out, it was so disorienting it wasnt even playable. For some reason the graphics or how you move around is just so annoying and makes the game very hard to play.

I like RS2 MUCH better than classic. I don't know why (aside from it's a tad bit easier, and the graphics look cooler). Although I do, from time to time, miss the good ole' days of classic when RuneScape was actually a community and Jagex wasn't a corporate sell out.

The richest RuneScape player has 14B, I will not state their name - for obvious reasons Razz.

And you know that it's against the rules to sell RuneScape items/money for real money. Just under 1000 players got banned not too long ago for doing just that...

that's true but I have been a member for 2 months and yes, they have more stuff and map space and more updates. But after a while you get bored by the animations and your game screen is so small.

I assume that the reason that the RuneScape java applet is the size that it is is because of the different screen resolutions that people have on their computers. Some people can only just see the whole thing, whereas other people get a very small game applet that is hardly big enough. And things can get complicated in full screen.

Maybe they should have a screen size option as well as detail. This would, though, give benefits to people with bigger screens and settings that make everything look very very small (is this a high or a low resolution?). It would also be unfair on people with bad eyesight, who have to have everything very big.

I think after a while, it can get good and addictive, even for me if i played it, which is the reason i choose not to (play WOW for more than 30 mins, and youl know what i mean Twisted Evil) .

Even though I play runescape I agree on most of your points. I do not, for some strange reason, think that RuneScape is boring, however. In fact I rather like it.

I think that the thing that draws me to it most of all is the fact that you are compeating against thousands of people. I like to increace my levels, more than train; this is simply because I like having high levels, and great ranks. Hence the fact that I got 50 construction on the day that it came out just to say that "I beat Zezima to 50" - I was also ranked arround 130 in the world at the time. Yet I stopped, this is because I am not actually sad enough to get level 99 in a week. No, I have a life and friends (real friends).

It's the getting experience points that lead to a higer rank, so I like that bit of RS. Although it is a bit of a <insert swear word beginnig with "s" here> game. The graphics are not terrible, but - how shall I put it - minimalistic, and all the animations / graphics are repeats, which does anoy me rather Wink

Only one problem, you'll never be done.
If you play like that then you'll never complete all the quests, and never get all skills to 200m xp (that's the max). This is simply because Jagex update the game faster than you can actlually play it. This is good in some ways, but very very bad in others. Especialy when considering people's health etc etc.

I tried it and it didn't work, the best way is just set your screen on 800 x 600. Then you have a perfect view.

What were you thinking you would like to see with full screen? Just everything in big, or a bigger GUI (graphic user interface) and a much wider game view.

Personaly I don't mind the size (although it does look a bit small on a huge resolution).
Roald
It would be the best if you had full screen but your character stays the same, so you can see more of the map, they also should add better animations.
ninjakannon
Roald wrote:

I agree that they should have better animations, but know why they don't: I think that it would just be too much work for them to create amazing animations throughout the game. However, I do think that they should start to improve the animations bit-by-bit.

And, although I would love to have full screen, but with the same size character and map etc, I know why Jajex havn't done this. Simply because that would be unfair on some players who have smaller screens and/or larger resolutions as well people who simply didn't have full screen mode on.

But it's a good idea and maybe they should make it so that you can only use full screen when you're not in the wild - otherwise some pkers would find it unfair.

I couldn't agree more. I feel that the thing that people complain about most is the poor graphics, I know why they are as they are. But believe that they should be better and that if they were, Jagex would increace their proffit margins.
ChaosMike
Indeed, if they could have a way to improve the graphics without hurting the gamers' ability to play, it would built up the community beyond what it is now.

When you play an hour runescape you get bored by the graphics, but when you play it a really long time, then it is very annoying. I'm sure the Jagex staff knows this but why do they nothing at this BIG problem?

For a simple reason, they get hundreds of thousands of members no matter what. It would be very hard for them to update all the graphics in the game to make them good; thus, they stay poor because other things are more important than the graphics.

Yeah indeed, I think they get so much members because of all the quests and better spells, skills,... I think there should be a poll:
    I play runescape
    I stopped playing runescape
    What is runescape?

Remmos
Runescape used to be the best. Now it's one of the worst free online games available. Put down a few bucks for Diablo 2. Definitely worth it. If you want something completely free, go with Gate to Heavens or Silkroad. Gate to Heavens has a few server issues that the GM's still haven't fixed and Silkroad gets repetetive pretty easilly, but that's expected since they're absolutely free.
ninjakannon
Although I don't really see anything wrong with selling your RuneScape account they do ban for it. Personally I think that it gives them extra players, so they can't complain - not really.

And, Remmos, as far as I can tell RuneScape is the 2nd ever biggest online game of it's kind ever (if not the biggest, I'm not totally sure). They have almost 7m players and aim to get 700k members by the end of 2007. So, although many people hate it, RuneScape seams to still be the most popular game arround.

runescape.... it's not a good game... it's really not fun ... i prefer pokemon ... LOL....

runescape always laggin ... and i have a good computer... i was playing before on the 2d version ... but , when it's start to be on 3d ... pffff

fhockey.com

its: Eastide Hockey Menager...

its an hockey game ... but ur not playing the game... ur just doing the line up ... trades ... contract ... finance ... etc... Ur the General Menager ....

Wink
ninjakannon
To be honest RuneScape looks better than that hockey game...

It's just my personal preferance of course, but games like that are more repetative than RuneScape anyway Neutral

And for those who find RuneScape too repetative:

This is a quote from the runescape website news. This month they are planning to make some of the repetative tasks a little more fun, I think. Very Happy

What makes it so bad now? Jagex have been constantly improving it and personally I think it's getting better, not worse. And yes, it is very overcrouded, the least number of people that I see on it these days is arround 83,000. Jagex are trying to fix this but they can't keep adding more worlds fast enough Shocked

And why do you think that it's out-dated? Is it that you think that it's just old (or: "so last year") now?

I've heard rumours of an RS3... but they wont do a frist person view, methinks. What's so good about a first person view anyway, personally I prefer the view from above because you get a good view of everything arround you.
c'tair
Its really overcrowded, and most of the people dont take advantage of the game, they just play for the xp points... some people dont even do the quests Confused and were surprised such even exist. Plus, the world is very poor, it could use some grand events like war or somethin'
Em_de_Tech
I can't say that i dont like RS... Because i do. I played that game for four years... I was a member for 1 year... I now play it when extreme boredom strikes... I love RPG's and thats probably why i started to play this game... Yeah, it doesn't have the best of graphics, but its still fun! The game is addicting and you gotta hand it to Jagex. They really are geniuses for designing something like RS that would capture the minds of 1/6 of the world's MMORPGers. Now they had to be smart to do that... And for those of you whoare complaining about their lack-of-things, design a game yourself that has those things and you wont have anything to complain about. Do you guys have any idea howmuch Jagex earns? If you think you're smarter then create a better game and earn mroe money then them!
ninjakannon
I hardly do any quests, they're anoying and get in the way Razz But they do provide a challenge and thousands of people enjoy them; so I don't fully resent them. Surprised
I find it fun to get XP, that's what I like about playing RuneScape, are you critisising me for having fun? I take advantage of all aspects of the game but I just don't go crazy for the quests, I'm sure I'll do them all eventually... but just not right now...

But they could do with some "grand events", they could fit some into the storyline quite easily. It's just a lot of work Neutral

I HATE RUNESCAPE!!!!! I started playing it couple times, but I couldn't get the object. I mean, you battle some idiots and fullfill quests, but only thing you get is points and nothing more. You can't possibly win that game, just continue playing and wasting your time. RUNESCAPE IS STUPID!!!

The point of MMORPG's are that you can't win the game. That is what makes them so different from other games.

And there are enough other games which are totally free (downloading, not webbased). And those ALWAYS have better graphics. Why can't runescape do that too? No doubt even more people will pay 5$ a month for the game then, you can just make the game completly p2p (paytoplay).

Sorry, I mean, my website is related to Runescape a little.

About the bad word filter, it filters out single letters such as "s" and "z" when they are used at the ends of alot of words. You can't type normal senteces all the time becuase it will filter out random parts of words. It's very annoying to go in a fix what you say every 5 minutes due to a bad filter Confused

but i dont think anyone should ever play runescape if you have any self respect!!!!!!!

Zezima. He's still at number 1, although he once disapeared, and was overtaken momentarily. But he's just got more than 700M total experience; and obviously has all his levels at 99. He gave an interview to some guy at http://tip.it/runescape. He's actually crazy, he made 800 and something k fire runes to get 91 runecrafting before the abyss (and essence pouches) were invented. That's hours and hours of gameplay. He also ranged 49k of blue dragons to get 99 ranging.
moonshadowinn
I've played before, and I'd have to say its a good time waster. Granted, there's nothing to make you want to sit down and play for hours at a time, like in WoW or Diablo, but if you are just wanting to waste 30 min or so, plop down and mine or kill a few goblins. >shrugs< just my two cents
Duck
I don't get what people like in that game Confused What's the fun? Runescape is lame. And then, it even costs money if you really want to do something. I have tried to play it, but I just don't see the fun. I saw a high level player, and I thought: "Hey, that's actually nice, I'll go leveling up too", and when I killed a few monsters, I thought to myself: "This takes months", and I quit.

This version of the game will be fully 3D.
Runescape 3 (I call it RS3 if you don't mind) is coming in december this year! If it is fully 3D, then i think the game is much more fun. Because now it are such a bad graphics that not anyone wants to play it because of the graphics Laughing . But what do you guys think, is there realy coming a RS3 and do you think that if the graphics are better that you would like it more?

Runescape is CRAP.

You have to walk everywhere, you end up devoting your life to it and to advance further, you have to pay a multinational corporation £3 just to walk around a crappy so called '3d world'.

Runescape is the stupidest game ever. Zezima probably is some 30 year old living in his parents baement and has no life. He probably doesn't have a job so he has no money to actually buy a good game like WoW so he just sits there and plays it. When Runescape 2 first came out, it looked really cool, but after playing other games, the graphics stink. Becoming a member is pointless because it wastes 5 bucks a month to get more gear, and if you forget to pay your bill one month, you lose all of you member stuff. Jagex should try to come up with a decent console game, that maybe some people will play.

OK, just for your information, Zezima is 19 (or was when I last heard), and goes to university. He has a girlfriend and plays runescape with her in her spare time. He has enough cash to play WoW, but much preferes runescape.

Jagex should try and come up with a decent console game that some people will play? Erm... wait a second! Jagex should carry on doing what they're good at, a lesson Google is learning. Remember that there are almost 700,000 members of runescape. And arround 7 million people who have accounts.

It's only a waste, if the person benefiting from the membership is not enjoying playing runescape, or does not play runescape anymore.

Also, you can subscribe in a way such that your membership is automatically updated, so that you do not become a non-member until the card expires. But even if you do become a non-member, you still have your member items. You do not loose them, but you cannot use them.

People like zezima and n0valyfe along with liljuffy88 all play about 13 hours day ADICTED however this is just a race between them peopl elike Divin god or muskee play like 3 - 4 hours a day and also work for school but i play like 2 hours a day which is also pretty much, i play lots more on holidays tough

Yeah, that makes sense. The people like Divine God and others are just really efficient, and don't muck arround too much - which is why they're so good.

I once saw someone say: "I only play 15 hours a day". I was totally speechless and thus haven't forgotton it. What I wonder is how long did the person they were talking to play for every day? Longer, obviously.

I made a girl character in the game and everybody would walk up to me and say "can you be my gf?" so i eventually agreed to all of them and they'd give me really expensive items or just gold directly.

So my character's occupation was Prostitute, ROFL.

yeah, lots of people do that. I don't know why people just give their stuff away to random 'girls' on runescape. As half of the girls actually have male people playing them. What a joke. Laughing

Hello everybody,

Runescape is a pretty fun game, its cool, who cares about the graphics, but it is pretty fun to play for ages 13 and under, but once u get older u should straight away quit the game.

It is also fun if u are really good at it, and u got allot of items, just like me, it is fun coz u get to challenge ur friends in the game. It is a very good game coz it is free for non members, but one thing i hate about it is that membership costs tooo much.

I played RuneScape a few years ago. I had a level 50 mage or something like that, and +40k in all kinds of runes.

But then I died, lost almost everything, and I quit.

LOL, strange. Me too. The extra features do not change the game at all. It's seems so pointless. All of it. It's addictive and fun and gives you a minor sense of accomplishment. Still pointless.
arkebuzer
it cant be that bad... since it´s so poppular Razz
I havent played it, but I have been playing Tibia for a few years, and they used runescape graphics in the beginning.
I guess both tibia and runescape are great proof that games need a lot more than just fancy graphics, they need a great community and so on.
Runescape is getting rather old by now though Wink

I dont aggree with the ones posting here saying it´s a waste of cash though... I mean, after all it´s quite a cheap entertainment. If you play it like 50 hours/month it´s probably a lot cheaper than renting movies or something like that twice a week.

I play Runescape too (<---as you can see at my screenimage) and I think it's not a waste of time (and money). It's fun to play, but most people don't get to the point that they are 'high leveled' and it's too bad Runescape only get's fun for older people after about...70-75 combat and 800 total level.

After you reached that, membership will be more atractive and so will be the game itself. Also if you buy a game in the game-shop it will probably cost 60$, that's equal to 15 months of Runescape membership, but I don't think their are many people who play games like Halo or GTA for that period of time so Runescape might seem a waste of money, but it's actually pretty fun.

Ofcourse I don't mind people saying it's just stupid but don't please make the same discusion cause liking games is very personal, otherwise there wouldn't be some games...

RUNESCAPE IS THE MOST ADDICTIVE GAME EVER IN MY OPINION.

I played for 2 years , 10 hours each day leveling up then i decided to become a member and it was GREAT! i became rich and gained 30 million and bought full dragon and a few party hats with a abby whip ( not with 30 million i had more ) then i started playing FPS games i then stopped being addicted then left Runescape.

My advice : dont play it for loads of hours
Star Wars Fanatic
I currently play, and I only wish I had 10 hours a day to devote to it, but I don't, I am currently level 80, and I just became a member, it is one of the best things I have done in Runescape. Actually, the site that I will be hosting on FriHost will be a blog of my Runescape journey.
fedex220
I think that the game gets slightly boring after you know where everything is. At first the game was wicked fun! But, I got up to level 54 and said "This is boring". I was a member i owned my own buissnedd i was rich and, i had it all but it just got plain boring. The best part of the game though was when i walked into Varrock in the Christmas, and, I saw the christmas tree and, santa gave me a yoyo (LOL). But other than that it got boring.. What was your favorite part?
kyang91
I use to like this game. I started hating this game when it went 3d. i think it was a better game in 2d.
Drayk
Most people here seem to be complaining mainly about Runescape's graphics, which doesn't seem fair, as they've done a really good job for an online java game that doesn't require a big download, and can run happily on dial-up. Runescape's lack of a central storyline can be a bit disconcerting first up, but what kind of a storyline would really fit Runescape? Would it be a good thing for one player to walk up to another and start talking about how he saved the kingdom from the giant demon lord, while the other players there had only just recieved the quest, and were told five minutes ago that the kingdom was in "dire peril"? People would start complaining about how stupid the whole game's story was, and I think the non inclusion of a set storyline is much better than a badly implemented story. What made Runescape a great game for me is the community, which I've never seen a better of. Some people go around complaining about n00bs spoiling the whole game for them, but those people are imho pretty stupid and nooby themselves, especially those who then go off and try n00bing some items off other players themselves. How does walking away from the noobs sound, its not like they're a problem all over the world. Since Runescape is a role playing game, people are free to fill the role they feel they want to. Personally I find people who exhibit n00bish tenancies no problem at all, you don't know them (probably), so feel free to take the micky out of them (without resorting to threatening or offensive behaviour), or if they try following you for items, take them for a nice long walk into the wilderness, for a chat followed by a brutal stabbing. Then again, some people complain about the cost of Runescape - If you don't want to pay, THEN DON'T PAY. I've played runescape since I was 8, and I've never been a member, and have never really felt the need to spend money on it, yet I know that I enjoy the game much more than the vast majority of members (if this forum is anything to go by). To all those who come here simply to complain about Runescape to boost your points a little, stop! Play runescape properly, post questions and suggestions rather than abuse, and try to enjoy yourself a little. If runescape doesn't take your fancy, then go play something else without feeling the need to turn other people away from playing runescape with your whinging.
Jeza
I played Runescape before I played WoW and I thought it was quite fun, but the players there were strange and pretty anti social most of the time. When i played WoW, I realised just how naive I was to think that I found Runescape entertaining at all Shocked
Technaut
lmao Laughing

I used to play this, i liked it, but I stopped.

I realized it was more and more taking over my life, I PAID for playing it and so on..

So I stopped like a year ago, I've played it some more times after that, but I'm getting bored. So, go on playing it if you want, but there are funnier games to play.
m-m-w
I play runescape to pk.. Everything else is boring...... TO make money for pking, I just macro... Confused .. Some might hate me, but hey I'll see u in the wildy Razz...Jokin

Anyway its pretty cool...I also sell my mills for $8 each which is cool also..But the truth is, if u never played runescape.. Don't start... I hate that game, but I am so addicted to it...

Thx for your time.. *opens up browser & types in runescape.com*
Billwaa
why do people even like runescape so much? Bad graphic, bad gameplay, bad story, bad mission, bad everything....
m-m-w
That's not true.. People like different things. Not everyone is graphics crazy. Not every one can afford to pay for WoW. I mean I got loads of games on my computer... yet I still enjoy playing runescape.. It just might be cuz it gives a chance to compete wid others.. I find everything in runescape boring except the wilderness...
Warriorza
I think that if people don't like Runescape just because of bad graphics they're not real gamers...Everyone who is a gamer knows that gameplay and storyline are far more important than graphics. I find that Runescape has a very nice storyline and history. But I think there has to be more done with clan-related things...
Zeidon
I think for me it just became very monotonous, its one of those games thats addictive for awhile then when you do get bored you really wonder why the hell you just spent 3 weeks chopping trees, but fun for awhile. Its one that i keep going back to although i think i've had enough of it now.
Drayk
I play this game regularly, for about 30 minutes to 2 hours every night or two. I don't find it boring, I don't mind the graphics, and I don't mind the storyline. What a lot of people here seem to be looking for in Runescape is pretty silly when you look at what Jagex set out to do when creating this game - they wanted a completely online Java game that people could play without needing broadband or a big download. They suceeded, and really, the graphics aren't that bad at all; we're probably just used to the stuff you get in a fully 3d game. The story in Runescape seems to get people a bit stirred up too, the story is simply to be the best you can be. They don't pretend that the game is real (therefore it is NOT really a RPG, it's more of an adventure game), and they actually say somewhere on the site where Runescape is described to make your own goals in the game, be it to become rich, be the best you can be, or kill other people. People who pay for this game must realise it is their own choice - DON'T COMPLAIN TO THE FREE PLAYERS ABOUT THE COST. You may have chosen to pay the 14 dollars, and for that you get a whole swag of extras. We, the free players, DON'T pay, because we feel paying for it is stupid (then again, paying for WoW is stupid too), and we make do with the FREE section of the game, which, economically and style-wise is practically a separate game. I heartily agree with people who come and go regularly as the years roll by, but I don't agree with people who go out complaining then coming back, TIME and TIME again. If you want something exciting to do, and someone has already mentioned it, GO INTO THE WILD. It is the best feature of Runescape I feel, the ability to explore a region of the world rich in treasure, monsters (with good drops) and fights with others. Prey on the weak, try to survive, and have a good time! What I've never seen in any other game is the sheer number of people complaining about it when they stop playing (and then coming back) - but look back on all those games out there you paid $80 for when they first came out, and finished playing in a month! Maybe you don't complain about them because if you do, you'll look like an idiot because you were the one who went out and bought it. Runescape can be played FREE, so don't complain about that! Paying is your choice. If you don't like what I'm saying, write back! This is a forum, and a polite argument will just mean extra traffic for Frihost, so I don't think they will mind too much. Cool
Drayk
Some people know nothing about this game, and the people here are probably turning them off from playing more than anything else. So for all those people who have never played Runescape before, I'm going to explain what Runescape is.
Runescape is a massive, online adventure game, made by a group called Jagex. There are two different segregated sections, the members who pay money each month, and the free players, who pay squat. Membership lets you have access to more parts of the site, more items, more monsters, more skills and the like. Serial Free players like myself argue that paying money for a game you can never own is a waste, but some members argue that by paying and playing Runescape over other games actually saves money in the long term. Either way, when you do not pay the next installment, you revert to a non member, and so it's not too bad if you want to quit playing Runescape for a bit. As a new player, Don't go off and start paying, rather, spend some time checking the game out. There is so much to the world of Runescape, there are quests to do for experience and benefits, there are skills to rasie, items to get, money to save or squander, spells for casting, places to explore and people to meet. The whole game is very small, and is downloaded into your browser until the next update, meaning you can access Runescape from anywhere in the world if you have the internet (including dial-up), and what's more, it runs on pretty much any computer. Until an update is made, the downloaded copy of Runescape is kept safe in your browser to save you downloading it next time (exceptions may occur if you don't play regularly). You can have as many accounts as you want, and you can never stuff up a character unless you break the rules (by scamming, hacking etc.). Runescape has an abuse reporting system that is very easy to use. If you prove to be a valuable vigilante agent to Jagex, you may be made a moderator, which has its own special features and responsibilites. You start playing Runescape on a tutorial island, which is annoying for those who have already done it, but very valuable for new players. This can be finished in 10 minutes or so, and then you're in the real game proper. When you start, there will be many things on your mind, such as "where the *bleep* am I?". Fair enough, just click "world map" and you'll get a huge world map to look at. You start at lumbridge, in the eastern part of the map. If you aren't a member, the majority of the map will not be available to you, so places like seers villiage and camelot and the northern wilderness (beyond the white fence), and places like the swamp to the far east will be locked off. Nobody on the free servers will go there, and everything you need to enjoy yourself is in this part of the game anyway, so the choice to become a member is up to you entirely. Falador, Varrok, Lumbridge, Port Sarim, the southern wilderness (most of it), Draynor, Edgeville, Al Kharid, Rimmington and the Barbarian villiage are all open to non members, inlcuding part of Karumja and Crandor Isle, and the intermediate landscape. Almost everyone is friendly in Runescape, and some of the most exciting things to do are in the wild (kill or be killed), however for now, just explore a bit, talk to people, train up in fighting, and feel free to leave or continue at your wish. Runescape is a good place to talk and play around with your friends, so get them online as well.
PenBuddy
Is it just me or has runescape served its time. Its boring and it annoys me soooooooo much!
gameantics
I think Runescape is addicting purely on the account of their active hi scores list. Without this critcal piece, I doubt it would have lasted as long as it has. It's not the worst mmorpg out there and is good for killing some time but in order to really get good at it, insane amounts of hours of doing the same thing over and over again are required which I guess is the backbone of any mmo but it's an incredibly obvious part of Runescape. Best java mmorpg out there though Very Happy
jeremyyak
I hate it when people say "Runescape has crappy graphics"...Well, have anyone of you that say that every tried to make a sleek perfect 3d world in JAVA? I think not...

Runescape is addicting, lots of people play. And its very unfair to compare to other games like WoW because WoW required a whole CD to play, thats about $40, then you have to pay the $15 a month fee to play...

Runescape is free, you don't need to download anything but Java, and most people already have it.

But 9 out of 10 people you talk to on Runescape are jerks...

IMO, its a pretty nice game, I play, don't knock it if you haven't tried it Confused

runescape has to be the most retarded game ever it has the worst graphics the most retarded setup and is pointless in so many ways its for people who dont want to pay 15 bucks a month for a real game like wow or ff11

Well, all games are a waste of time. I think Runescape is fun. And you don't have to pay for it as you says in the first post.
Warriorza
I play Runescape for about 4 years now...
And I still think it's pretty much fun.
But most of the reason people often quit fast is the graphs and the fact RuneScape gets fun only after about...70+ combat.
I'm combat 83 now and I advice players to join a clan.
Party's and PK-trips are great fun and make the game less more boring because you don't have to train all time.

guugu
Im still playing runescape... after 3 or 4 years... im 100 lvl and i have been member... when we atalk about graphics... plz remember its java-game and you dont have to get install.exe for it. Players are pretty young and in f2p there is lot of beggers and people with bad behaviour. still i like playing the game. Im in clan(one of oldest runescape clans in Finland) wich have some older ppl in it and we have lot of fun competitions and some pk trips

and then 1 more thing... why people who hate the game starts the thread, are you now cool coz you did get change to start threat like "RUNESCAPE SUX"?
Boffel
Well purhaps its a waste of time, but still fun!

I got an level 83 account, and love to play it. One time I had also done all quests, (members and free). I also had a level 42 account with only magic skill, but someone stolen it Sad It was realy lovely to have it in the wilderness...

And thats what I hate with runescape. Its so easy to be hacked...
I have lost a santa hat, and 2 millions and an account from scammers and hackers.

But the actuall gameplay is realy good, and it newer lags! The only bad thing with this game is the graphic. But that has nothing to say with the gameplay.


But right now I dont play it, and I dont play other games either...
Im making my own 3d game now Very Happy, and its much more fun! Special to see the finished works...
EekMan
I was coming in hewre to make a thread asking if anybody plays Runescape. Shocked

I don't play often but, when I'm bored, sick, or just want to play a game, I go to Runescape. My highest account is combat 63, nothing too special
Dustin
lol, i like how the first post is completely 1 sided...usually offical stickies are unbiased on the first post. Nonetheless I have to agree, but at one time runescape was a fun game. That was when I played, it wasnt a very friendly game and thats why i loved it. However now it feels as if runescape has been bought out by disney, everything is just to nice.



I think runescape would be better if you could enter 18+ servers where swearing was allowed, and all the women had mini-skirts/bikinis on.

You know they're not going to do that. Apart from the fact that that would detract totally from the game and basically turn it into another perverted online chat room. You couldn't guarantee that under 18 year olds were not using the 18+ section and so parents would refuse to pay for their child’s membership and may also ban them from using it. The reputation of the whole game would also fall dramatically. These, amongst other reasons, are why your suggestion will never even be considered by Jagex.
Dustin
That is true, i highly doubt that jagex would ever consider that suggestion...however from my point of view i stronly believe that the game would be funner if they did that. They could do lots of things that would make the game funner from my point of view, like adding cars...and then being able to hijack those cars. Sort of like GTAScape. Now that would be a sweet java MMO.


if only their was a way to mod runescape, that'd be so cool. My modded runescape would be awesome. You would get extra XP for useing unneccisary violence, and their would be a rune gat and a rune AK47...how awesome would that be lol
lukecarrier
Some people may think its really sad, but this game isn't all that bad. I wouldn't spend all day playing it, but if you're bored then I suppose it's a pretty good idea. It has premium services (you pay for these) which are pointless, but if you're stuck in boredom...
Ftpjunki
I play Runescape from time to time. I don't like the game that much because it is relies on money and the economy. You have to work very hard for the money and harder for more money. Then it is easy to level your skills if you have money. I would rather work hard for money that you can use in real life than to work hard for virtual money that has absolutely no real life value. To me it is a waste of time and effort. Surprised
Danltn
Too much of RuneScape skills is based on how much GP you have.

He was the richest player in RuneScape and had literally billions (I've heard that he had around 140B, but I'm not sure - remember that this is in items as well as cash). He used his own money to get the resources, but it is possible that he paid people to do things for him.

Unfortunately he was banned not long after getting 99 construction. Someone hacked his account and used it to password scam; Jagex did not allow his account back when he appealed.

After he was banned the price of party hats rose (blue party hats became worth around 500M then) and so did Santa hats and masks as well as all other rare items, although not by so much (only a few mil). His banning changed practically the whole economy of RuneScape in some way or another.

Or at least that's what I know.

Umm... Runescape isn't much fun till after you reach lvl... 70 I think. And the holiday events aren't what they used to be since they are untradeable.
Reason for making them untradeable:

Extreme high prices (Christmas crackers are about 800 MILLION right now and the amount of crackers left is less than 100.)

Also scammers often use these items to scam other players.
I don't know if it's true, but some people say some players suicided cause of being scammed these items. (Really pathetic ok)

For more info about these items I'd refer you to:

I play it, it's pretty fun and a good boredom solver. It's challenging, and rewarding when you achieve things. I think the price to pay for members is fair enough, as there is so much to do.

The forums are good, and there is lots of helpful information on it too. The various fansites around are often a good read, and it is overall, a good community.

I just quit this game a while ago. I was usually on and off all the time but decided to just quit for good. It was too hard making money on runescape and everyone in members just seemed to be too good at the game.

I'm lv 83, and I stopped playing, yet I still pay for membership, I have a whip, dragon skirt, rune plate, berserker helm, obby shield, rune boots, obby cape, all the dragon weapons, and around 1.8 mill in cash, then I have like 9k coal, 4.5k iron, and like 4k cannonballs. I usually only do pest control or something when I go on, then I level up my mage lol... Pm me if you want to be my friend, my private chat is always on.

I agree with the OP. Runescape is a silly waste of time. If you want to play an MMO, grow up and shell out the 15 bucks a month for a real one. Heck there are better free MMOs than Runescape too. Its ridiculous.

Ik ben gestopt wanner ik een Blue p hat had, voor een kleine 119M

Na 4 maand weer beginne spelen aangezien blues nu op 428M staan.

Heb hem dan verkocht en 2 purples en een white gekocht en ben weer tijdelijk gestopt. Laatste tijd heb ik veel meer nood aan nieuwe skills. Hunter skill is nu uit gekomen tijdje geleden al en nu dus wachten op summoning skill.

Dan begin ik weer, merchant ik weer wat en stop weer. Cool

i play runescape from time to time. I started playing years and years ago. Maybe around 5 years? Back when there were only 4-5 servers and only a thousand people on each one. Now there's over a hundred servers and over a thousand people on each one. It's crazy how fast it grew.

I started playing a few months before they got rid of the black hole and the disks of returning. Now my disks are considered "rare" haha. I have like 5 mill, 10 easter eggs, and bunch of other rare items. I want a party hat, but DANG they're way to expensive for me.

I'm level 83, and i'm mainly a fisher/cooker. I have around 81 fishing and 88 cooking, something like that. I want to get my cooking to 90, it'd be my first 90 stat ^_^ but i don't play that much. Yet i still pay for members *rolls eyes* lol
rampantinsanity
I'll admit that back when Rune scape was first developed, way, way back in the day I played it. Can't remember what level I was...somewhere in the 80's I think. It's been at least three or four years since I last played. Have they ever updated it or is the game still the same?

When I first started playing it, right after the beta testing phase, the graphics were considered to be ok for the time and now if it's still the same, I'd imagine that it's really outdated.

I used to play as Janisa and before that as hellspoet

no offence but runescape is dumb the graphics stink and their is no clan feature to it u can say ur in one but that doesnt mean u are to prove u are u should have a clan "symbole" or even the name of it next to ur name.

But that doesn't make it difficult to show which clan you're in. Most clans are very small and consist of around 5 or 6 members, then you get the slightly larger clans of perhaps 20 members. The smaller clans don't have any trouble remembering who's who, although it might be a bit tricky to remember which members are in a clan of 20 or so members. However, if you play in the same clan for a while then you should be able to identify all the members and know not to attack them quite easily (less than 2 hours game play should be ample time). When you get onto the largest clans, say over 100 members then everyone wears the same team cape anyway and you can tell who is and who is not in your clan without difficulty.

Not too many people complain about this issue. I would be interested to hear from you how you think a "clan feature" would best be implemented and how it would work.

lost wrote:

Please back up the things you say next time (you didn't really with the clan feature either, just so you know) - it really spurs on the debate rather than letting other people do all the hard work.
You say the graphics stink; I'm not sure how your nose works but I don't know anyone else who can smell them. I've played some games with pretty awful graphics so RuneScape is far from the worst, the fact that it's 3D also adds a lot to it. I must say, though, that I've played some amazing games which have terrible graphics. Anyway, currently Jagex is working hard to improve the graphics, they are continually updating the various areas and furthermore, are currently improving one type (by this I mean something like all undead creatures, or all woodland creatures, not one specific NPC like an imp) of NPC a month. They're doing a good job too.
I would love to know why you call RuneScape a dumb game. To be honest you have to do quite a bit of maths and work pretty hard to efficiently play the game (not everyone does, and you don't have to be efficient to have fun). The price of items is also really hard to get your head around and realistically reflects some real-world markets. I would never go as far as to say RuneScape is a dumb game.

The game isn't bad if you are members or having a good account. Staking is pretty fun and the best way to earn money.

Yeah but you know why it's faster for members don't you? Obviously, Jagex will give more to paying customers than free to play accounts who don't help them earn a living or improve the company nearly as much as the members.

It would be silly if it was any other way, plus there would be no incentive to become a member.

yup, offcourse its only fair to lvl up faster when you pay for it, and i have no negative comments about that fact Very Happy And more + to jagex that they have seperated worlds to members and nonmemers, so ppl who pays cant use their member only items against f2p players

I'm glad you don't seem to mind too much, that blue party hat would sell for around 400M or more on the forums at the moment. At one point they were at at least 525M.

People play because:
• It's online, so they can play easily and quickly when they're on their computers
• Although the graphics aren't amazing, they are good enough to make the game constantly interesting (for some people: at least for a while and/or if they keep alternating tasks)
• RuneScape is very fun at times; there's never a time when you have nothing to do (the same with most RPGs)
• Not everyone has an Xbox 360 or enough money to buy one (they have a computer because of it's all purpose use; plus, computers are very useful and aren't simply used for entertainment). Of course, they could still buy the PC version, however this is too much hassle for a lot of people
• Many people enjoy the MMO part of MMORPG, not just the RPG part; the multiplayer capability is actually a real enhancement to a game. Even though there are lots of people who try to ruin your gaming experience on RuneScape, this number is easily dwarfed by the number of people playing fairly
• Many people start playing as non-members and many of those who really find the game fun to play will become members. This is far easier than buying an expensive game, remember that most people won't be members for all that long and so in the long run it's also cheaper than buying a game like Oblivion

I'm sure I could think of more reasons, but I don't need to. Oblivion is a very good game, I'm not denying that, but there are many aspects of RuneScape which Oblivion doesn't have that make people prefer RuneScape. Furthermore, Oblivion isn't available in all the same countries as RuneScape is (RuneScape being online and accessible pretty much anywhere). You just have to be able to read English or German (they've just released a German BETA version of the RuneScape website and game) and you can play. Another point is that no installation is required for RuneScape.

Do you see now?

Yea, you don't have to download runescape. I know a lot other free 3D MMORPG's that have better graphics than runescape but you have to download them. Runescape doesn't require a top notch computer either thats why its also a +.

They have the "need", as you put it, to either keep their place and/or move up the highscores; if you look at what Zezima does level-wise you realise that he keeps getting experience, it looks like he wants all his ranks under 100 but at the moment he's doing thieving. He's at rank 4 for that with over 124 million experience, I'm not sure what it is about thieving but loads of the people on the first page of the highscores (especially the top 5) have at least a few million extra experience for thieving. Anyone know why they do that? It's one of the 3 skills that people seem to gain a lot of experience in after getting level 99 in everything; the two being cooking and fletching.

Zezima had high levels on Runescape Classic so he's been playing for awhile. Hes been surpassed though.

Yeah, I think he's been playing pretty much since the game was released. Who has surpassed him? He's back at the top of the highscores again. And when he wasn't at the top he still had the most experience, he just didn't train the newest level as fast as some of the other players.

FedeSite // Mac wrote:

Isn't that www.globalmuonline.com? There's one simple difference between these two games and RuneScape - they both require the download of a client. That's one reason why RuneScape has had such success: you can play it pretty much anywhere in the world without ever downloading a thing. Many people don't like downloading content from websites they've just found. However, if they find www.runescape.com and see that they can play for free without downloading anything they're far more likely to sign up. Indeed, once they have they may get addicted and thus RuneScape has a new player - this happens quite commonly, I'm sure, despite the fact that these games you have linked to might actually be 'better' [in general].
Seiji
Runescape requires no client which is its + Games that do require a client are most likely better with graphics but require better PC's to run.

Let me guess, couldn't level fast enough? Or did you just suck at it?

Honestly, runescape is one of the better MMPORGS... Silkroad is awesome, great graphics and battle system but that is all it is, a battle system. It, like just about any other MMPORG, has no community value what-so-ever. Runescape allows many different skills that you can level up.

Now, after reading this thread I bet you think i'm a runescape lover?
Nope, ex-member... Hate the game, way to repetitive for me, but when people like above criticize it unjustly it just makes me mad. As for the graphics, who cares?! They are way better than most so stop complaining.

I can see that you're one of the seven-year-old children. Well, I would asume so - after all, you haven't thought your argument through and haven't argued against any of the right points.

For a start, and I know you didn't directly attack this but it needs to be mentioned. The graphics are not exactly what you would call amazing. However, they are good enough - especially as you don't have to download the game, it's browser based. Which is a huge plus, seriously. You can play RuneScape from pretty much anywhere in the world so long as you've got an internet connection and Java is installed. Java can't handle much more than what RuneScape offers so don't complain about the graphics - no one can get anywhere by attacking them. The bad graphics price worth playing for the flexibility of being able to play anywhere.

No skill system? What do you mean by that? There are different levels, which count as skills - and each of them has its own system. And you definitely do need skill to do well in the game. Not when you're new to it and facing the easy challenges, but later on, when you're combating NPCs with combat levels far higher than you can get. Have you ever tried getting the lava cape? Now that's a challenge.

Yeah, the repetitive levelling is quite a turn off for many people. I'll agree that it's not exactly ideal. However, most games (especially in categories similar to MMORPGs and RPGs) become repetitive when there are so many levels. But the levels are well spaced out and manage to grip thousands of people around the world. So is it that bad? No, is my answer - but variety could certainly be increased.

Heh, bad sound effects... Again this comes down to it being a browser based web game which does a lot of its loading in real time. I must say they have improved the music recently (Jagex built a system wherein sounds are generated from the Java applet and sound the same no matter what your sound card used to output). The sound effects aren't amazing - no, you might say they're pretty bad - but who's complaining? They're a pretty small part of the game. Huge numbers of people turn off the music and/or sound because they'd rather listen to their own music. Heck, I wish other games offered that feature.

I won't even comment on the points you've quoted near the end there (how can I argue against "The gameplay is weak", there's no point there - just an opinion). There are few games that offer accessibility pretty much anywhere in the world, that have a thriving and complex economy system (which is actually quite often a challenge to buy and sell in for profit). Few games have an economy, which reflects real-life markets, actually. There aren't many games where the competition is such that you have to think through your tactics and always face a challenge. Obviously, there are the 'seven-year-olds' who refuse to play the game properly and just muck about. But if you actually give the game a chance I'm sure you'll find parts of it quite a challenge and very fun
The map is huge, the variety of NPCs is gigantic, the number of quests is quite daunting when you start out, the number of proper friendly players is truly astounding. I don't know many games better. World of Warcraft (a.k.a. WoW) is a good contender; it's far better if you don't mind not being able to play it anywhere in the world (e.g., when you go on Holiday and have a few hours to kill one morning). And all of these things are ever-growing.

I myself hardly play at all but, like master12, hate to see people criticise what is actually a really well designed, well made, entertaining game.

Not when you're new to it and facing the easy challenges, but later on, when you're combating NPCs with combat levels far higher than you can get. Have you ever tried getting the lava cape? Now that's a challenge.

Not going to argue my point on skills as I haven't wasted anywhere near enough of my life on this child's game to know about the apparent skill involved in the game.

Yeah, the repetitive levelling is quite a turn off for many people. I'll agree that it's not exactly ideal. However, most games (especially in categories similar to MMORPGs and RPGs) become repetitive when there are so many levels. But the levels are well spaced out and manage to grip thousands of people around the world. So is it that bad? No, is my answer - but variety could certainly be increased.

Not exactly ideal - thats a understatement for example: Guild Wars manages to have a gripping game! of skill, yes skill! (I forgot the leveling; GW has a level limit of 20, which is relatively easy to attain).

Heh, bad sound effects... Again this comes down to it being a browser based web game which does a lot of its loading in real time. I must say they have improved the music recently (Jagex built a system wherein sounds are generated from the Java applet and sound the same no matter what your sound card used to output). The sound effects aren't amazing - no, you might say they're pretty bad - but who's complaining? They're a pretty small part of the game. Huge numbers of people turn off the music and/or sound because they'd rather listen to their own music. Heck, I wish other games offered that feature.

For one I'm complaining and there is no reason for the abysmal sound effects other than Jagex's lazy staff.

Yes... But you only need to download that once, and most computers have the Java runtime environment installed anyway. Remember that most people who play RuneScape are in their early teens, which means that they're at school. Most school children revise, I don't know whether you know this but many revision websites are now turning to Java [and Flash] to make revising more fun. Furthermore, and more obviously, there are plenty of Java games out there that people of this age group will want to play. I don't personally know anyone who has a computer without Java, and I do know some people with dial up. By the way, Dial up can handle 15.82MB - I had it for years and it was only irritating when the files were over 30MB to be honest.

Then why comment on it in the first place? Remember that in arguments you should never comment on something that you yourself don't have much knowledge on. There is skill involved in playing RuneScape. I'll admit that the variety and level of skill isn't as great as it could be or as great as many people would like - but there is skill involved. And many people find RuneScape pretty tricky at times.

The repetitive levelling is the point that I agree with you most on. Yes, it is repetitive - no one could argue any other way. However, if they had, say, 20 levels in RuneScape then people would get there far too fast and the game would actually be really boring. What Jagex has done is to have a huge number of levels that will keep some of the most addicted players interested. Others drop out earlier and this leads to a whole vast range of level differences in the game. Okay, so many find it tedious, but to improve the system is a big ask - they've designed it without much variety (I'm assuming for speed, so that they could work on other aspects of the game in more detail) and I think that's one place where Jagex falls down.

Telnven wrote:

Right... They're so lazy they update their game more frequently than almost every other game (which can be updated in this way) in the world. Seriously, they make small changes practically every day and large ones probably on average once a week.
Jagex haven't paid much attention to the sound effects, but they're adequate and certainly not "abysmal". They are currently improving the graphics of different areas and creatures, perhaps they'll move onto the sound effects next. They're bound to at some point.

Your points weren't exactly unfounded; I just don't think you thought some of them through thoroughly enough. In some cases I suppose that's understandable as you don't actually play the game.
I haven't got any figures for you I'm afraid - I was making an observation really. If you look at the homepage you'll see that the showing are 5 news articles stretching over the last 7 days; in fact 3 of the articles were issued on the same day. So you will immediately notice that they do make new additions to the game quite frequently. If you delve further and read their news articles you'll notice the "In other news" sections, where they announce smaller changes that they're making. They make these small changes pretty much every day, as far as I can work out - it would make sense to make the alterations as soon as they find a fault or something that needs amending. Large updates are announced at the beginning of each month, there are always a few things that will make a noticeable difference to the game. I think there is almost always a relatively large update every 2 weeks or less.

Thanks for the apology, you didn't think all of your points through but at least you put them forward well and I can see that you are able to construct a good argument.
Jagex definitely have a lot to learn. I think they've realised that their initial rush to release the game meant that now they're paying by having to update every area's and creature's graphics. However, I think they have actually proffited from this, so I'm sure they're not complaining.

I thought you were one of those people who created an account on RuneScape, started out, saw that it was easy to start with and the graphics were terrible and decided to hate it. There are those who are just simply determined to hate the game and haven't even played it. They don't see the game for what it is, but for what they would like it to be (something like "trash" (or a less decent word, in many cases)).
You are better than that, I just didn't see it from your earlier posts. So now it's my turn to apologise for what I thought.

You can't change the actual size of the Java applet with which you play RuneScape. But yes, if you change your screen resolution then the Java applet will appear larger [or smaller].

The easiest way to do this is:

    1) Right-click on your desktop.
    2) Click Properties.
    3) Go to the Settings tab.
    4) Move the slider under the Screen Resolution heading to the left (down).


I hope that helps. Smile

What amazes me about runescape is its popularity. I cant understand why people could spend hours in that game, the graphic is ugly and the gameplay is nothing outstanding. My eyes still hurt from playing that games, althought I only played a couple of hours.


i agree the graphics do suck, but im sure the popularity is because it is free. Some of the graphics have improved immensely tho since i first started playing. and runescape 2 was a nice improvement with the graphics as well (and you have to be addicted to still be playing runescape 1)
Seiji
The graphics are bad but after awhile it gets really fun. It didn't get fun for me until I did the Dragon Slayer quest. That quest has to be the hardest and the most fun for free players. Members is also a lot of fun. You can stake but its so difficult since everybody there seems to have some type of pure which makes it difficult. You also have to be fast at clicking the mouse to be able to stake. Members get a lot of benefits and a lot more places to go and whatnot which makes the game fun.

Well i think runescape was a waste of time there are alot better games out there since i stoped playing runescape i have started playing on habbo and cokestudios... and a few others, my friend has made a game and i am an admin on it check it out tell me what you think of it.

I think that habbo is definitly worst than runescape. Runescape and Habbo are both entirely different.

As you say, they are entirely different - henceforth, I would say that the two are incomparable. I have played both and Habbo seems to have far less variety when it comes down to things to do than RuneScape. Is variety not one of the things people complain about? And although the graphics may seem better, they are 2D and far less versatile than RuneScape's graphics; I also find them more boring, as they are often repeated over and over (for example floor tiles) without any attempt to introduce irregularities. At least Jagex have done this to RuneScape (and are still adding this extra level of attention to many areas).

Okay... so when you get to the levels that take an hour to train up just to achieve the next level you should still be fairly low. Perhaps high 50s or less, which to be honest isn't very high at all.

Master_Link wrote:

So you were basically stealing their real money as they originally paid for the in-game money. I hope you hadn't realised that before because at least then you're just not too bright, as opposed to being a immoral and a thief.
Master_Link
immoral yes thief no they gave it to me in return nothing when they give it to you its not thieving...its them being stupid just finding a way to release there stupidity is the scamming wich is there fault and can NOT be held accountable to any other such as the Scammer so there for I can NOT be held for anything trust me I got the message when I got scammed on habbo =o

You are stealing their money. They believe that they will be getting something for their cash, therefore when you do not give them what they thought they were going to get you have scammed them. Right, another word for scamming is stealing, although there is a difference between the two. All we need concentrate on is the fact that scamming is stealing by / with the use of trickery.

It's like walking into a shop and taking a Mars bar to the counter, then offering the money, snatching it back and running out with Mars bar. An even better way to describe it would be giving the person at the counter fake money.

Do you see now?
Master_Link
take it up with the game...not me...there rules of how they handle scammers on a "game" are different then from the ones in real life and its not like given money and taken it back cause if I did that Id have all there stuff not just like 2 things...cause to + scamming yes scamming there are two sides you trick them OR you give something they think is of value but isnt wich yes is tricking BUT that is no problem but there own I used both when I did it but mostly stuck to given them stuff that is worth some now then later is worth crap like....say a Gold nugget and you wrote on it with perm marker yes perm marker goes away but if it didnt value goes down samething on the game ... there for by doing that they are reciving something lil for something big wich what they receieved is actualy nothing compared to the something I got


You understand now? yes its an unfair way to gain stuff in a game but hey, gain some you lose some and in buisness world and even on games there is plenty of that to go around

I don't understand why things (I don't class them as people, they're not good enough) like 'greatfire' here are so arrogant. There is so much that they don't understand or realise about these games. Usually they are young children who haven't yet developed enough skill to analyse a game properly. What interests me is that they continue to pretend they are far superior to any other 'things' in existence to that they may feel good about themselves; most soon realise how immature they are.

I would also like to point out that it is impossible to single-handedly make a game better than RuneScape in 3 hours - such a task would require hundreds of highly organised (not to mention highly skilled) game designers / programmers / website designers / graphic designers etcetera. Actually, it is pretty hard to make any decent game at all in 3 hours (bar the simple, addictive, repetitive games that you never tire of; these though, are incomparable to RuneScape).

Runescape is deffinatly a fun game... Although the thing i don't like about it is how they keep adding all these new items. There's sooo many now that when anyone wants to sell/buy anything to/from me that i have to go look it up every time. There's just tooo many items to be scammed with. I always end up buying something for more than it's worth.

Then there's dragon items... BIGGEST WASTE EVER! lol. They cost tons of gp but aren't that much better from rune stuff. Then there's the D-Chain, which just keeps dropping dramatically in price b/c of auto people who continually cheat and drop market prices really fast making who ever just bought the armour forced to sell it for a lot lower than they bought it for....

but besides that i LOVE the game haha

I have played RS for about 2 years now.. However i have started getting extremely bored with it Sad.. It was a good game, although i dont like the graphixs

Yeah, it is a good game. Great PvP, awsome quests (you need to be a member to access most of them), and alot of skills to use. Practically everything you can see in Runescape is interactive. However, even on High detail its graphics take a bit of getting used to.

It's just so, so, so.... boring... I have never seen a game much boring than Runescape..

There ain't nothing in the game that would make it interesting.. go play Legend Of Mir instead..

yeah the graphics could be better. Even when you play the high detail game they still aren't good. All the high detailed game does is add spots to the walls and ground... basically it just makes it look messy and crowded

I played Runescape 1 year ago, it was a fun time when i played with friends talking over Skype and doing noob stuff.

i used to play RS... before it got so fregin populated... it used to be quite a fun game, sure its graphics wernt the "best" Wink but it was fun enough... but as the time went on, more and more annoying idiots joined and the community just started to suck

example:

newbzantator1248: DUZORS!! YOuzA SO AWe1ZOME!!!
newbzantator1248: G1V3 me MonEYS! PLZZZ !! PLZZZ
newbzantator1248: PLZZZ PLLZZZ PLZZ PLZZZ
me: ****logoff****

Wink

then they started the whole rs2 thing and the community just got worse.. plus i had hit lvl 74... 80... i forget... somewhere in that range... and had done pretty much everything the game had to offer (yeh i was a member for quite a bit too, and had done all the members quests up to that date)

anyways, was fun while it lasted...

and i dont mind text based games... specially text based stratigies.. i find them quite fun Wink you know, make tons of money with your country, launch some nukes and full out assualts on your friends when you know their armies arnt at their base... stuff like that Wink (playteq is funnnn Wink)

I don't agree with a lot of what you said...

I play Runescape pretty often. I live out in the country and there arn't too many people living near me so I really don't have alot to do. I am cursed with a Dialup connection aswell. When Runescape is updated it takes me a few minutes to update it. I can log in and see my budds from school and say "Hey want to go kill dragons with me?". Killing dragons with friends is pretty fun for me in the RPG aspect of the game. If none of my friends are on, I go and chop trees for money on which I can spend on anything I decide that I need later on. People who rant about this game need to get over themselves, it's playable on Dialup, costs nothing unless you get members, you don't have to quest, you can just go kill things or level up your non-combat skills. What do you expect? Not to mention you can go in the wilderness and kill people and take their items, that's always fun for me.

I played this for 6 months to a year (got up to lvl 50 or so)in 5th grade and moved on to other games. Lately I've been bored as hell so I decided to go back and check it out. I was amazed at what I found, I remembered it as a game with crappy graphics but that was super fun over all. Now after going deeper into MMORPGs and games in general I realized just how much it sucks, but hey I enjoyed it in grade school so it must have been fun right?

Okay, so we've heard your opinion. What are your reasons for thinking this? You've got to give valid and quite strong (in this case, as you said it was "one of the best games ever") reasons for believing this or no one will bother trying.

Yeah, fair point.

Quote:
2. its good when your bored

Again, true - a reason why many people play. But not the addicts, they play because they love it.

Quote:
3. jagex is constantly being updated

RuneScape is constantly updated, I'll agree with you that this does make the game better, more interesting and gives you a lot to do if you so wish.

Quote:
4. its fun laughing at level 3's

This is your opinion, so not a valid reason.

Quote:
5. its free and can be played from everywhere

However, this is a valid reason. Another one why some play - also remember that Java is installed on most systems with internet access, so it can even be played by people who are limited by their computer and cannot play many other games.

Quote:
6. pking is so much fun when u kill someone

Yes, but it might not be so fun when you die...? Razz This makes the game interesting, I just hate it when others blame you when they die. People like this ruin the game, but what do you expect from free to play?

Quote:
7. bragging rights about higher skillz than others

Again, your opinion.

Quote:
8. people trying to get mad at me for playing

I wouldn't have thought most people would find this fun. I hope you're not provoking them.

Quote:
9. you can sell your gp for money (lol i dont though)

No One should do this, ever! Aside from it being against the rules, it encourages illegal/immoral activity. Don't know what I'm talking about? There are sweat shops, in places like China and Korea where people are paid ridiculously low wages to get money on RuneScape so they can sell it. Jagex is trying to stop this activity and is currently banning thousands of accounts who sell RuneScape money for real life money. Read the RuneScape news to find out more, they've made two or so articles on this quite recently.

Quote:
10. Playing runescape brings up so many opportunities for sites you can create.

This is for people who enjoy this kind of thing and get pretty addicted. This is not one of the things that is unique to RuneScape itself or a great attraction to most people. It's not exactly going to put make many people out there want to join.

You could have added points about the forums, community, challenge to be successful, wide variety of things to do, fast and high quality customer services, the care Jagex has for their players. The list goes on.

I can think of bad points to mention about the game, but let's not include those here.

I played it for a long time and now it's boring.. Confused
unknownc1c
lol why do a lot of you think it's boring? They keep new updates every week, which i don't really like b/c there's too many bugs and problems that need fixed but don't get fixed <_<

Right now the biggest problem with runescape now are the autoers. I hate them soooo much lol. You see them every where all the time and even if you report them they'll just come back. They're just soo easy to spot now too it's just sad. Yet they still run around and ruin the game for everyone else. Confused

ive played it before and i played every day i think, but know its kind of borin beacause its so old and its the same u can do every day if ur a noob:P,,, but its a great game and even better skills on the game:P i was good on attack btw 71 <3Razz

Omg, Runescape is a waste of time in my experience... it's not worth playing when you could be doing something constructive... Errm... Just ignore my avatar

Of course it's a waste of time! It's a game...

Are not all (non-educational) games a waste of time?

Well, you might say "yes, they are" as you could be doing something constructive instead. Now, let's cut to the chase here; ever heard of the phrase "all play and no work makes Jack a dull boy"? If not I'm sure you can still see what it means. Playing games is only a waste of time if you should be doing something constructive - like a lot of things other in fact.

I'm assuming this refers to pking. If not then please explain, otherwise remember that not everyone does pking. Take the time to look up 'zzzamorak' on the highscores as an example of a skiller. They're certainly not a n00b. And there are many others, some with awesome total levels, who don't pk. They're not n00bs either.
J-Evil
This place is great. theres actually a topic for RS on here Surprised


ANYWAYS: I have been playing RuneScape for a bit over 6 years now on my main account which is Level 122 Combat at the moment (maxed melee stats, only thing in the way of 126 is 26 prayer levels :$)
(Wont name my main character on here)

People might think its a waste of time or money but those that do probably have never fully tried it out or gotten far enough in the game to appreciate it.
gametap
I like the game I have a lvl 99 combat account and a lvl 93 account they are pretty nice accounts... I might quit runescape soon though. After a while the game get's boring.
tom69
It's unbelievable how many Anti-RuneScape topics or comments ar ebeeing made :p And those who make them are the World Of Warcraft Players, maybe because there are more RS players then WoW players? I don't know. But how come that if so many people hate RS, RS is a huge succes after all?

People that forget about the true story, and only judge the game by it's graphics, ... will ofcourse come to the conclusion that WoW owns RuneScape... But is it realy all about graphics? Is it realy all about those dang pixels on your screen. I'm not gonna say: they are just pixels, cause they're more then that. But still the biggest part of the people forget about the story, I don't know about Wow, but RS has a very long and very interesting story about gods, futur, past, believes, it evens explains certain things that happen around us.

But i'm not going to write a whole book here, i'm just saying that I realy love RuneScape, I'm even dumb enough to pay for it Very Happy

Anyway...

RS ftw!

Firstly, not all of them are WoW (that's World of Warcraft for those of you who don't know) players - some are just those who prefer other games and dislike RuneScape for whatever reason they have. And secondly, no, there are not more RuneScape players than WoW players - WoW is bigger despite being more expensive.

And when it comes down to it WoW is a better game. But what many don't understand is that it pretty much has to be better, if it wasn't... Well then it wouldn't be worth buying.
Why do I say this? Because RuneScape is a Java based browser game. So it has many huge limitations, one of which being graphics capability. For example, the RuneScape game engine can handle only 2500 polygons per NPC (non player character - ie CPU controlled characters) because otherwise the game would 'lag'. As it is RuneScape is the biggest (both in popularity and in game-size) Java game I've ever seen and it wouldn't surprise me if it was the largest of its kind in the world.
World of Warcraft is not browser based, nor is it made in Java. It is a proper game that you install and run as a program (like AoE (Age of Empires), for example). As of this it has the capability of using far better graphics than RuneScape and, well, pretty much everything else could be better - the game itself is more powerful.

So why is RuneScape so popular? Let's use a little list:
• RuneScape can be played on any computer so long as it has internet access and Java installed
• It can be played for free
• It's easy to play, there's no install required
• It is fun - the game has a wide variety of activities for players to chose from
• It's updated frequently (at least once every week)
• There is a good community (even better on the members)
• RuneScape provides a constant challenge

I won't go on, you get the idea. I know not all of these are specific to RuneScape, however. I'd also like to point out that WoW does have a better community, and generally nicer players, than RuneScape (because they all pay to play (p2p) and RuneScape can be played for free or very cheaply - cheaper than WoW at least) but this does not stop RuneScape having a good community itself.

When it comes down to it, people play RuneScape because they find it fun. Of course there are varying degrees of enjoyment that people get from RuneScape. Some people play when they're bored and thus don't enjoy it as much as those who play for hours every day and are addicted.

No one can deny that RuneScape is a good game or that it is extremely popular and found by millions to be most enjoyable. Yet I don't think anyone could claim it to be the best game available - possibly the best of its kind though?
Sitckd
I agree, Runescape is definitely the best of its kind, but other MMORPGs that are not Java-based would probably appeal to more people. Also, I think that Runescape is becoming a common thing for young children to enjoy and talk about whereas you and your group of friends would all need to buy a WoW CD to enjoy playing it together and talking about it. Runescape is very popular in my area, so it is very easy for someone to go up to another kid and ask 'Do you play Runescape' and start engaging in conversation. In a sense, Runescape allows for a closer knit community while WoW lets you interact with other strangers more.
Lancer
I think Runescape is great at what it does. It doesn't try to compete on the basis of the latest or best graphics. What it does offer is a sense of community. I have made alot of friends there that even though I have now moved onto WoW, I still tend to go back and visit and say hi to the friends that I miss who have not moved on yet. Some, I keep in touch with via email or Instant Messenger.

The other thing RS has going for it is because it doesn't try to go for the best graphics is, it's system specs aren't very hard for someone with even an older pc. Just about anywhere you have a pc with an internet connection, you can play RS.

What I do hate about it is the number of bots and farmers to be found there. I spent a long time getting to where I can cut mages, and catch and cook sharks without burning only to see the price of sharks drop.

Also, the number of scammers and beggars tends to be higher there than in other games. Don't know if it's because there are a higher number of younger players than adults who play it. Though among my circle of friends, the vast majority were adults.

Some of the reasons for macroing / botting on RuneScape:
• It's easy - create a free account and off you go
• It's also relatively easy to create bots for the repetitive tasks
• You can create as many accounts as you like without too much hassle - even make the bot do it for you
• It does get you riches or items quickly, if you don't get guilty from cheating

Some of the reasons for scamming on RuneScape:
• It's easy - as you say there are lots of younger players and they are often easy to scam
• If you get banned you can just create another account
• You can make a lot of money if you do it well
• In highly populated areas where many are buying / selling you can get away without the person you've scammed catching your name

I think that covers the main points. Although I feel like I've missed one from the latter list here.

Jagex aren't stupid; they've worked hard to create an optimum level of content for free to play users of the game. They don't want to give them too much, but enough to give them more than just a taster of the game. After all, they do have over 1 million paying members. So they must be doing something right.

I think that's a bit rich and highly hypocritical coming from a person who hasn't formed their sentences at all well or even thought about this sensibly.

Firstly, no one who hasn't got the money (for I assume that's what you mean) can pay for membership and hence why they don't aim to entice these people into membership. And secondly, they have millions of players and over one million active members. So just because you get bored with their game and quit doesn't mean that everyone else has done or will do the same. Indeed, there are some players who don't seem to know when to stop!
Azrath
Ok what i mean is they should lower prices a bit so people can pay and dont quit thats what happened to me.I dont Completely hate it i just got bored as you said. Confused Confused.Oh and they dont have over a million paying members!I asked a MOD Online and he said only up to 300,000 members in ALL!
Blu_Spykz
Jagex don't choose the prices.

The price of any item is dictated by the economy & market... Jagex have no say. Supply & demand, if it is in demand, the price will be astronomical.

There are PLENTY of ways to earn easy, and reletively quick "money" on the game.

I think you might want to look here: http://news.runescape.com/newsitem.ws?id=789; Jagex released a news item about surpassing 1 million members. Whatever that mod said he/she was wrong.

Furthermore, check out this link. You'll find that the thieving highscores are completely full - there are one million players there. Of course, this doesn't show that there are one million paying members at this current time, but there are (as RuneScape's popularity continues to rise) and Jagex even announced it (as I said previously).



@Blu_Spykz: We're talking about the actual price of membership in the game and not how much items in-game cost. Unless you weren't referring to us. However, you are correct in what you say.
Thomme
Runescape and other MMO's are really other games! Runescape isn't combat-only, there are MANY skills to advance what other game's don't have.

Runescape => Good gameplay, VERY static and VERY low graphics
WoW (etc.) => Medium gameplay, good graphics

so => If you like gameplay start playing runescape
=> If you like graphics start playing WoW, Guild wars etc xD
Lancer
I've always thought among the paid games out there that RS was fairly cheap. I mean with Wow, I'm paying almost $15 a month, actually twice that since I maintain 2 seperate accounts since my family plays on the other account.

I maintain 4 members accounts on RS for $5 each. 1 for myself, 2 for son, and 1 for daughter. For just $20 for all of us, and we can all play at the same time. I think that's a pretty reasonable price for a game that entertains my children quite often.

In case you were wondering, yes, I do still keep my RS accounts active. Don't have enough room to transfer all those member items to one or 2 characters and you can't get at them if your account goes back to Free to play. Hehe!

Though my kids still play RS frequently, I only play it once in awhile now, maybe once a week. Can't let it go entirely though even though WoW takes up most of my free gaming time now.

As the poster above said, RS has good gameplay. Lot's of my friends don't even do much combat, but instead prefer to level up their skills to 99. And the quests aren't often simply about killing so many of a certain monster to complete. There's usually a good story line to the quest though sometimes they can be silly too.

ok ive played runescape a lot in my life. yes i sorta think its a waste but also i dont. i had a great time playing it. then i noticed i was blowing off my friends to level or not doing homework to level. i just got some wrapped up in that game so i had to stop for a while. then i found out this hott girl that i know from school plays it so i kinda started back up haha
Byakuya_Kuchiki
Usually "Text based games" require some imagination and patients to play, they really were not meant for a hardcore gamer. Maybe thats why I get bored of RS sometimes, it doesn't really let you use your imagination in game, but I'm still to lazy to cancel my membership. Perhaps maybe this is the source of these shallow comments eh? Smile

i agree with you. i make my own games and really dislike runescape. i used to be addicted to it and now i have no idea why. i did however make a friend in the game, i still talk to him all the time on aim.

CONS: but the gameplay is poor, the graphics are minimal, and it is SO CENSORED! OMG! they can't even say damn! i think they should say when you sign up this is not a game for 5 year olds, if you see bad words we dont care. also, theres lots of scammers and mean people. they make up the majority of the game id say. also, there is a HUGE problem with cheating. just go to any yew in a nonmembers world and you will see 15 lvl 3s in starter clothing cutting it down. they really havent done much to prevent this, i dont know if they really CAN do anything more to prevent it.

PROS: there are a few. one is that you can play free. another is that membership is only 5$ a month and that is really cheap compared to some other games. also, there are no downloads, everything is web based. and the fact that its low quality is good for people with dial up. (i used to have it, so I sympathize). the last pro is the community. theres lots of mods and a huge community, lots of friendly people to talk to.

maybe ill start playing again if there is a runescape 3.0.....

I'm playing another MMO at the moment and I just find out how much RS has. Even though graphics are usually better at least in RS you can do more than grind. I'm grinding to get to lvl 35 in Scions of Fate but in RS you have about 20 different skills to level up( that also has its disadvantages). One reason why RS is almost never-ending. I quit now and don't plan on ever returning.

Jaxom
In my opinion, Runescape is a boring game. It does however have some values that redeem it in the eyes of it's serious players. For one, it is a browser based game and many people can not download games on their computers for whatever reason. Also, much of the game play experience comes from the things that are not regulated by the game (such as clans or activity groups run on the forums), they have fun through interaction with other players and not the actual experience intended by JAGEX. Runescape also has regular updates that encourage competition between players to be the best.

I love RS. I had a level 85 with 1248 total and i lost it because it was sold to me at level 10 and they did recoveries 1 year later after I trained it so much for 84 Woodcutting, 76 fletching and 112 QPoints.

My new charecters name is Dotca, level 61, started 2 months ago. I have 80 cooking now and I'm going for 99, my wc is only 66 or 67. My atk is 43, str 61, def 41, hp 54, prayer 42(nearly 43), Mage 59 nearly 60, 53 smithing and 62 or so mining.. I was going to be a f2p pker until my main rockonpker got hacked and I decided to make this account a member and make it my main.

Add me up if you have raw lobs sharks or monks for sale please. Also just add me if you're around the same level and wanna go pking sometime.

i play runescape like 1 year ...

Runescape has over 1 million paying subscribers, so they must be doing something right. I think their success is partly due to the fact that Runescape can be played anywhere without a client, and with minimal loading times. I am surprised by what can be done with Javascript in the case of RS. Hats off to andy!

Btw, I've been playing since 2001... so yea....

RuneScape is one of the greatest games ever. I was once around 4000 rank out of millions of members, but I quit a few months ago:

My user name was: SonicSilver - I got 87 prayer and 87 mining which I think are good achievements.

Man that's an addicting game, I want to start playing Unreal Tournament 3 soon though.

The skills are not the best part. The quests are amazing. There are so many quests to try, and anyone can go to quest help if they are stuck. Rune Scape is a fine game because it has lots of interesting storylines in its quests. The skills are big, but not as big.

God, i remember the time i started with Runescape, omg it was so cool, have never ever seen a game like that..
But maybe it was because i were 6 years old and internet was very new for me!

I played Runescape when it was 2D, and me and one of my friend practical lived on the computers at preschool! Laughing

Haha, when the other kids went to eat snack, me and my friend sat at the computer playing like freaks..

When the level 2 goblins dropped gold my eyes were big like basketballs
"OMG WHATS THAT", i were screaming like a freak and my friend just stared at the screen with his eyes as big as mine!

HAHA what times!
MsRedImp
I was 115 combat when I quit, I was going for 126 at the time but stopped because I was too addicted. I only ever got 60M because I was too into skills.

I never cared for quests, I only did them if it benefited my skills and something I needed. I love the skills part, every person for themselves. Smile

I hope you realise that this is a perfect example of behaviour that makes some people hate runescape themselves. In doing that you are ruining the game for others, and you admit it here as though what you've done is something to be proud of; I'm disgusted.
You may dislike the game but that's no reason to spoil it for others who do like it, no matter how much you look down on them for doing so. I hope you understand, and please refrain in the future.

I agree with Azrath. Runescape... isnt that impressive of a game. And if you dont waiste 5$ a month you cant do 1/4th of the stuff members to do. Which makes things REALLY BORING.
Why dont you guys play a real game, with good graphics, good gameplay, and NO darn'd Monthly fees. Try a game called: Arrow GUILDWARS! Comon guys. Play a real game. Toontown beats out runescape.

Have a nice day.

As time goes on I'm surprised that Runescape is still holding out. Its about time they release Runescape 3 because at first I didn't mind the graphics because the game is meant to run on low-end computers and whatnot. Now, you play a free MMO with better graphics on a average PC. RS is probably still favored by dial-up users and those with low-end PC's. The game also isn't bad at all. Even after I quit I sort of felt like I wasted too much time with it so now I will never return. I am anxious to see how the new version will look like if they even release a newer version.

jdarcy, I never once said that I was for the game. I'm just making a point about it.

I played once and now I'm bored. In fact, I got bored with runescape a long time ago!

I must say that I think RuneScape is impressive for a browser based Java game. Do you know any others which are that good/popular? I sure don't. Of course though it's nothing compared for example to Guild Wars as you point out. Or World Of Warcraft, which is exceedingly popular.

ye... there ur saying quite a lot.
most of us... i think cant rlly make such an game or even a better game. RuneScape can be quite fun but i gotta admid there are much better, greater, more detailed games then runescape Rolling Eyes

runescape is fun, to me, but thats all opinion... i think it's a break from the other games that just end up nothing but cussing and hacking...

I use to play this game until i finally, but eventually realised it's a complete waste of time and exteremly pointless, it took me about 2 years to realise this which is quite sad lol Razz

But if you want to waste your life playing this game i suggest you go ahead and play it Wink

To tell the truth, I think that almost 85% of you people flaming about RuneScape Must be kids aged between at least 11-14.
The simple solution if you don't like it, Is DON'T BOTHER WITH IT!
However the fact that you seem to be talking about it, makes me wonder if there's a little part of you somewhere deep in your heart that must adore the game.
I myself Do play. I have done for the past year, I have a level 90 account with a Maxed out skill. And plenty of money on it. I admit i get bored of it sometimes. But if this is the case. I simply go out with my mate.
I myself am 17, i hold down a decent life, have a job, a girlfriend a nice family, and feel i have a good life, Yet i still play RuneScape because it is something to do in my spare time rather than hang about on the streets smoking and causing trouble, It is enjoyable.
And you all seem to complain about the graphics.
Now for a JAVA game, they are outstanding, the reason you don't see flashy WoW graphics is due to the facts it's Web Based.
You don't need to download it, and spend hours installing it, It's a simple click and play, You can get up and running in a matter of minutes.
And the game play is pretty awesome after a while.

So before you start Flaming a game you should really invest some time into it. From the sounds of it you never experienced members play, there are tons of Mini Games to play, and unlike WoW you don't spent pointless hours getting from one place to another.

That's what i think.

Flame Me, Abuse me, Do Whatever you want. That's my opinion, i'd love to hear from you. Smile

I read about that yesterday - thought I'd check the news on the site as I haven't been playing for a few months. They've done a lot of work to stop real world item traders doing their thing, but I did wonder about the affect this would have on people. I think there are lots of people like you, Zombie, who don't like the new PKing/Wilderness updates, but won't you get used to them if you continue to play?

Non-members have had their major first new features since who knows when. I think they've benefited more from this than the members have! Yes, the way they PK has changed, but they now have the duel arena with most of it's previous member-only features.

What does everyone else think about these updates? They certainly do make it harder to trade items for real world items. But they put an end to lots of kindness, friend-only drop parties and the like.
war3brasil
I loved when i played the first time, but now its boring Sad horrible graphis/gameplay etc...
Thumpercats
I played it for awhile in between classes. I did get a adicted to it for awhile, but really it is too time consuming to level up your guy and get all the good stuff. One thing i liked to do in that game was to make new charcters and kill other people in the game just for kicks. I had a level 90 miner/ simther.... which I later found was a waste of time, as I ended up making billions by trading in the market to get all the gear you could possibly want. In short, this is something to do when you are extremely bored and have nothing better to do, or you just have to burn half an hour before a class or something of those likes. Don't waste your life playing the game though... It's not that spectactular.

I have few questions about that, if you or anyone would care to answer. I played for the first time in a month to check out the new updates and see the Christmas event.

If you put up an item for sale, will it be bought when someone offers more money than you're asking for? this must be true, I suppose.
And how do the prices change? the range is extremely small for many items, for example willow logs ranged from 22-24gp each yesterday. But last time I played, people sold them for 20-40gp each on average.
Are there any types of items that don't really sell?

I'm wondering whether this method is better for non-members, as they can buy and sell without using the forums. But it could be a bit dodgy for party hats and things, couldn't it? As you can't see the general trend on the Grand Exchange very well. Or can you?
vonboy
if your selling an item, it will be sold if somebody offers to buy it for atleast as much as you specified, so you can potentially get more then what you asked for if somebody wants to buy pay more for it. it will always try to find the person willing to pay the highest price.

same for buying. you will get the item if somebody offers to sell thiers for no more then what you specified, so you can get a deal if somebody is willing to sell it for less. it will always try to find the person selling it for the least.

i think it only lets you set the price 10% higher or lower then the market price, so inexpensive items may only have a range of a couple of gp that you can change. they update the market price once per day based on the average price that the item was sold for.

items that i know of that won't sell...
willows,cooked tuna(uncooked will sell, though), lower level armor and weps.

so basically the lower level items won't sell because there noobs trying to sell thier stuff, and not many poeple wanting to but them.

hope that helps some. Very Happy
ninjakannon
It does help! Thank you, vonboy. Smile You answered all my questions, in fact.

I guess it would be harder to sell items like willows, maybe iron ore and other such things that are relatively sought after but easy to 'gather' using skills and cheap also to merchant. After all, there will be loads of people selling them, and usually people who are selling more than you are, so anyone who buys in bulk will not be given items from you via the Grand Exchange.

Can non-members trade with members in the Grand Exchange?

They've had to do it. To put a stop to the illegal trade of gold on RuneScape for real life money. I'm sure players will get used to the updates quite quickly.

You're right, the runescape blackmarket has been completely shut down since the update was introduced. There has also been a huge drop in macroers, as the profits they produce cannot be traded to another account by drop trading or any other means. The many players that quit playing runescape after the update were mostly macroers and rl-traders... there were also a few PKers Twisted Evil who thought they would never play runescape again. But such an addiction can't be broken by a mere update, and I think in the long run this update will benefit all honest runescapers.

Firstly, I agree with Zombie there, you're right.

Now, traxion, I don't agree with you. For a start, all trades are recorded; yes, that means they would have seen you trade 50k for nothing. They would also have had the conversation you and whoever you traded to, and would be able to check whether you or that player had ever done trades like this before. And they scour the internet for websites selling or buying RuneScape gold.
Thing is, you can't just give someone 50k on RuneScape any more, when you trade with someone the maximum difference in price between what you give and what you receive is 3k. They've introduced a system wherein all items have a predetermined value, although this can change with the 'economy'.

As far as I can tell, Jagex have put a stop to it once and for all.
HalfBloodPrince
Wow. Jagex really are a bunch of faggots. They've totally destroyed the economy and barter system with this 'balancing act'.

I'm not sure you could call them a bunch of faggots for that really, only if you take a very selfish view. Think about it, they've put an end to some illegal and black market trade. I believe there were sweatshop equivalents in China where people had to work in terrible conditions with extremely low pay and obtain, in whatever way possible, RuneScape gold. Then it was sold on for cash.

You do wonder whether the people who were employed have actually been done a favour, and whether they will get another job with conditions that are any better and pay that is any higher. But at least it makes it harder for these illegal traders to profit from this technique. And thus less unlikely that such organisations will be set up in the future. I suppose.

In the end Jagex are trying to do good, over and above just running their game.


HalfBloodPrince wrote:

They've totally changed the economy, I'll give you that. Destroyed, no... After all it is still there. Just greatly changed. I haven't played much after this update but as far as I can tell the RuneScape economy is irreversibly damaged, but you can still do all you could do before - now without having to type for hours on end.

The number of problems solved outweighs the cons against this. So I'm for what they've done, despite the costs (which are numerous and extend beyond the few I've mentioned here).

i payed for it until december 2007 when they totally ****** it up "Real World Traders" where apparentely messing up the game, so they only let us trade 300 thousand coins at a time, totally bullshit in my opinion, they ruined a decent game and took away privelages that only members got and gave them to free players.
jerredk
It's not really bad with the stop real world trading . Nobady hacking anymore and you need to skill for your money. I got a lvl 100 char with 1 skill cape and 1 quest cape. I don't play much anymore but i still like it. Because i got many friends of the game. oBoddyo you can get a trade limit of 30k + if you got much quest points. It's still a nice game. And not all the update's are bad like grand exchange , new skills , ... 1 thing is bad with the trade limit update you can't make skillers anymore. Because you can't set money of account to account but thats agains the rules. It isn't realy a big change if you follow the rules always. Thats what i think.
Thanx ,

I know a way past it, a method that is used.

Jagex's efforts are, while done in good faith, only shifting things around. It is more difficult - but still possible - to trade large quantities of coins between accounts. The same therefore goes for selling for real world money, of course.
Elefant
Well, sadly enough I was addicted to that game for three years.

My account got to level 114 before I decided that game was a TOTAL waste of time. I know it may be fun as a kid, but seriously people have made a lot of wrong choices with that game. They play it almost 24/7. If I could go back I'd redo everything and make it to where I spend more time with my friends because much of my 13-16 years were to this game. It was a dumb choice that I'm stuck with, but to all who make it to the top, congrats on wasting a lot of time, but it was a hard achievement.

Now I usually just play XBOX 360, so if anyone wants to add me Elefant_666 is my GamerTag.

yea, i used to like run escape, but theres no point in it. its just a couple of people who want to make money. Its a total waste in time. theres such better games out there than this. The graphics suck, theres no story, and unless you pay for it, theres nothing to do.
playing RS when I have the time. I like all the skills but not the skill grind. I usually play for about 3-4 months at a time then take 3-4 months off from the game after burn out happens which it always does with the game. Currently I am CB lvl 72 and the sad part is my account is about 3 years old.

They should call it ruinedscape or communistscape now. It sucks now that they have taken out freetrade. The game has totally been ruined in my opnion all because of a few people who sold items in the real world. I have a santa hat and a mask set that has lost there value in the millions because of their new update. Also i used to be a member and now that im only a free player all of my inventory is stuck in the bank. The people are jagex are complete morons and decide on the crappiest of ideas. Who decided to stop making holiday events not tradeable anymore anyway and why. They should just delete the entire game and be done with it. Go enjoy life instead.

Look I'm level 110 in this game been playing for 2 years now..
I really liked this game until they made new updates which removes 90% of the fun of the game..

Now runescape is really BAD for your brain and desteroy your life..
For anybody who are willing to play it, I suggest you not to...

I've been an on and off Runescape player. I started out crazy, putting hours upon hours into it, but you reach a point where you get borede, or you find a new game. Then you drop rs. But after awhile maybe a friend talks about it, or your bored, you log back in and then you find yourself playing again. But I think I don't like these new updates, especially the no unfair trading. like if I need to help my brother buy something, he has to give me stuff in return and it sucks. Think realistically, how much has any cheater or macro, any any such thing ever affected your playing, apart from getting ripped off(which is your fault in the first place Laughing ). In my experiences the only thing they affect me is by standing around trees too much.

runescape had a massive graphics update also ppl cant not scam you.

when runescape first came out yes the graphics were bad but if they had made they had made the graphics better then they would loose alot of players. Runescape at the time was alot of files for a lil windows 2000 to hold and is still massive. take a look at runescapes map its huge about the size of morrowind's map to scale. there are thousands of monsters and other npcs to kill over 100 quests some that take a year to complete. if you do it on your own. 1000s of items wepons armors. You can own your house with a dugen which is p-vs-p( player vs player). you can mine for metals then refine them and make your own armors and wepons. tons of places to go to. If you get bored with this game ur prety much a noob that had a friend do the toutoruial for you.


Runescape got a massive update with tons of textures, and a more animated look.

I knew HD graphics were coming out, so when you said that I went to check whether free players could use them yet. They can! So I checked them out and I'm pleased to say they are very impressive - especially considering this is Java. The fog, dynamic lighting / shadows and improved textures, animations and models all look exceedingly good at a quick look. The water is nice too. I think the HD RuneScape graphics rival that of PlayStation One, if that's saying anything.

As long as Runescape isn't a download game, but an browser based game, it won't be interesting for normal gamers. If it's a downloadable game like many other free mmorpgs it could do a lot more and better.

i pwn you all at runescape cb 116.2 members cb over 500m cash graphics are awsome the game is exteamly fun and anyone who thinks otherwise just suckes at runescape because your RETARTED.
Flarkis
played runescape a LONG time ago. Back when the graphics sucked Twisted Evil Now that ive heard they improved the graphics, i might go check it out again.

And java is a haaaard language to learn at first. I just started learning it in school about a week ago and WOW. Although i have a feeling that after i get used to it itll become easier

PS Back when i played runescape, i got addicted to mining... and thats all i did. I mined for a good couple hours straight but when i went to bed i had nightmares about mining.... stopped playing after that Embarassed

I saw the newer graphics on youtube. They look much better, I would start playing again but I'm too old for RS. Also I'm pretty much done with MMO's. It was a good game before the graphics update.
msfuture
I´ve played Runescape for like 1 year.
The grapichs were ****** up but good enough for an free online game.
I still like the dragon weapons but dont play it anymore.
It got bored.

Now i play MapleStory the best MMORPG i ever played
warriorpoets
Yeah, Runescape definitely gets boring after a while.
msfuture
yea, if you arent member its boring after a while because no new things are coming later on high lvls and all the standard quest are easy aswell

Jagex has really been delaying the release of the new pvp worlds... I wonder when they will release it the suspense is killing me on the inside.
ParsaAkbari
WHY does runescape have all the bad reputation.

Its just as good as world of warcraft except its graphics are a bit worse.

Also it has a HUGE communtiy. It is big on youtube too. (highest suscribed runescape video maker has 50k.)

Its a you either love it or hate it.

And the only reason some people hate it is because they enjoy hating something. Sure we all enjoy hating something but i dont see the point of you ranting over GRAPHICS.

If you want realism play REAL LIFE.

Runescape is probably in the top 4 MMORPG's eve-online Smile and WoW

And best of all its cheap.

I must disagree with you. They have made it much better,

Graphics update

I could go on forever seriously

PS they released dragon platebody.

I played that for some years, when i was younger. I never forgive myself, the time i wasted on that shit.
I could have used that time for soooo many other things, even earn money!

It also has to be noted that runescape has a very amazing online community. With its largest youtube video maker having 60-65 thousand suscribers...

i have 530....
jsfdan
I watched RuneScape evolve from Dec 2004 to present. I got to say, its an amazing watch. I play RuneScape because I love the medieval times and RS represents that.
Wouziedotnl
i played it a few years ago, but it pretty boring after a while. Waste of time i think. But i must say, the graphics were updated pretty good!
antichrist_elexnet
yeah runescape is really sumthin special for some people.. but i agree with some people, paying money for virtual stuff is just a waste, they can just give their money to me if they dont know on what to spent it... the game is fun by itself.. and there are some good updates planned for the future, athough i think (and alot of other people too) that the RS Classic was some way but better than RS 2 ....

Add meh if ya want, (RS ID: Anti_Kitten)

"Before playing RS, think on how many othr good things you could spend your time and money on, rather than spending everything on RS"
Moshkin_Khan
Its like every other game, some people hate it, some people like it. I think its like most other mmo's and really addictive, Also usually its a stepping stone for kids/teens into bigger gaming. Lots of people I know used to play runescape then moved onto things like WoW etc.

I think its addictive and can be fun. Its just up to each individual I guess. No point bashing the game if you dont like it and didnt play through the majority of the content tbh.

The story line is in the quests which I think are really good.
pho3nixsky
Please runescape got old.

I had a lot of fun in this game back in the Runescape 1.0 days. It was just simple random fun, and silly. They tried too hard to turn it into a "serious" MMO.

I agree 1.0 was a blast! It has a completely different feel now, but it's still entertaining.

By the way I'm going to hit 98 attack at the end of next week. I already have 99 strength =P
mwsupra
Just started playing Runescape, and decided to start off as Member just to get the full experience (only 6 bucks). I have to say its quite addicting, and probably not a good thing for how busy my life is. I'll probably keep playing it anyway, since I'm weak for MMORPGs. Member status is a huge difference I'd have to say.
Jamestf347
I use to play so much, now it's not one of my priorities, On a rainy day that i'm not doing anything I might get on just to check some updates or something, but it's seemed to start to bore me.
Zombie
I know what you mean, it does seem somewhat boring. Probably because it's much less action-packed than WoW and other competitors. However, I think it seemed so unboring in the past because I was younger.

runescape is a good platform to develop youre own gaming experions. way?
1 the game is free
2 the game has all elements ( rpg, fighting, collecting, sort of racing, missions,.. )
3 the game is not hardcore like wow or a COD4 mp
klownsrus
yea i have played this game and its the bomb, did everyone know that you can make your own, but i beleive that it is legal to a certain cercumstance
ato784
Runescape is an ok game, but I feel that it is a game made to be played while you are doing something else. for example, if you are working on a school paper, playing another game Wink ,
etc. It is fun then... and only then
klownsrus
Well i agree, it is sometimes boring and a waste of time, but if you are a paid member on Runescape it can be really fun, but thats just my opion, you may still think its crap, but its way better than some games :}
foreverdestiny
When I first started playing it was quite interesting but sooner or later you'll end up doing the same thing over and over again.
The worst part is that Jagex totally ruined some aspects which made runescape unique. I mean every mmo suffers from Real world trading but I don't see the developers ripping out all the fun parts of the game.

At last I have stopped playing and currently working on my very own game. I'm glad that this nightmare is over!

Oh and runescape fans/addicts/supporters please don't flame me it's just my point of view.
mewmewlazlo
Runescape is an amazing game! Yes, it may not have the greatest grahpics, but it is a nice game to play and relax while playing. But my fishing is way too low. It's at 14 and my combat level is at 46 and higher. LOL. Some skills like fishing are pretty hard totrain if you are not a member so I am going to wait until i become a member, i can right now but I do not play it all that often.
PleoMaster
After recently been banned by a mistake of Jagex and refused to be unbanned I quit the game. There customer support is very poor and was a waste of 3 years of game play to be falsely banned.

I tried this game, and i still feel that my eyes hurt. I don't understand why people find it addicting but for me, the last couple of hours I tried to feel the intensity of the game turned out to give an intensity in my eye. For me, This game is an eyesore. However to be fair with players who love this game, the graphics of this game is quiet.. ummm.. how do I say this. WEAK

this game is a complete waste of time, i had a lvel 7 mage and i couldnt stand the graphics and hand no idea where to go

yea i have to say i agree with everyone now, way back when i started playing it about 7 or 8 years ago it was actually really fun and very addicting but it got old quick for many reasons already explained here. I actually logged on and tried to play about a week ago and that lasted all of 10 minutes Twisted Evil just isn't the same anymore.
Jamestf347
Pros

1. It’s the largest MMORPG known! It was even in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2008 (or was it 2007? sorry, but I’m not completely sure)!
2. Runescape is so massive that it would take years to explore everything and finish all those quests and max all those skills to 99, so there’s always something to do!
3. You can multi-task! For example, when you’re Farming, you can train Melee while you wait, or you can train Fletching while you play mini-games(that’s what I did when i was playing Pest Control).
4. When reach level 99 in each skill, you will be able to get an awesome Cape of Achievement, which would be something you’re setting as a goal.
5. Runescape is updated about once every week! So there’s always something new you can try out.

Cons

1. Jagex, the makes of Runescape, sometimes make stupid updates to decrease the fun of the game, even though it’s probably for a greater cause. The two worst updates ever was probably the removal of the wilderness (although now you can use pvp worlds) and the trade limit rules.
2. Because of the recent updates, noobs these days are cockier than ever, and it pisses off all of the ”elder” players who have more experience.
3. The membership costs around $6 CAD/month so some people cant afford it every month.
4. Runescape is somewhat addictive, so after playing, you just cant seem to stop, cause there’s always something to do and you’re constantly setting new goals.
5. Another con of Runescape is that their censoring is to strong, you got to be at least 13 to play(without being restricted to quick-chat) but the censoring is like PG6.

umm, well... I must say that the main difference between playing runescape and making your own game would have to be the mass amounts of people constantly on runescape... It's a lot more fun playing a game with many many people than by yourself... and if you find it easier after a while than maybe you need some new goals, because there's always a new challenge.

Another thing I'd like to point out is that funner is in no way a word...

yo yo yo same here i thinks that is a waste of time too because it take too long to levle up

I agree RS doesn't have the graphics of fancier games like WOW or Dungeon and Dragons online, but it still is fun. I have met people from all over the world, Sweden, Australia, Britain, Germany, even China who play.

For 5 bucks a month it isn't bad and a heck of a lot cheaper than most other online games. And unlike Dungeons and Dragons, doesn't make you pay for points to buy things.

As for text based games, they went out in the 80's. They sucked back when I got my first computer, a 286 and haven't gotten any better.

Personally I prefer Oblivion, but since it is not online, RuneScape is the next best alternative. I tried WoW and D&D and they both have a lot to be desired other than good graphics.

There are a lot of older players too. Oldest I have met so far are a husband and wife, she is 63 and he is 65, both with 130+ level characters. I am disabled and so is my girlfriend (she is legally blind, but can see just enough to play with help) so it helps pass the time for us...

Keep all your crappy games and I will keep playing RS...

The only thing I dislike about RS is no way to really have a "Role Playing party" with a fighter, mage, thief, and cleric. It would be nice to be able to do that. RS has a Role Playing world, but even there it is mostly a single player set up. Some of the quests would be great if you could have help on them, instead of having to do alone.

I tried the Dungeon and Dragons Online where you can have parties of different classes, but most of the players there are not interested in real Role Play and it turns into every man for themselves even if you are in a party...so they suck.
guth75
I used to like it, but I grew out of it quickly. There are just to many rude people, etc. and mostly my premium membership expired Razz It was fun to play at first though... I would always try to get into server one for no reason Laughing Those were the days. Rolling Eyes
amperx
quitted playing it when my friends premium membership expired, and it wasnt even my account, i was just lvling a new char, damn i dunno but that games just slow
GoldenBabbler
At one point in my life, about 3 years ago I was very addicted to this game. I got as high as level 100 and I had a members account for over 1 year. I ended up quitting since they removed the Wilderness, which was a large area for PvP and I also quit because I simply grew out of it.

The main reason I played for so long was because I belonged to a Runescape clan and I grew to become good friends with the majority of people in the community. In fact, I still talk to some of the people I met on Runescape and neither of us still play the game.

Some may argue that Runescape is a stupid waste of time and any who ever played it is childish and unintelligent. This simply isn't true. It's just a game and I used to play this game.
amperx
at one point in my life, i was so addicted to this game as well, that it got me to lvl7, then i realized there are alot of other browser based games than this to kill time
meep
The new skill dungeoneering ruined it, 120 levels while getting level 99 already took long, and to top that it's more of a minigame than a skill.

Still going to keep playing it though because of the friends i got on there Smile (only thing I do now is hang out in clan chat while playing minigames)
pscompanies
It's fun in the beginning but when you're not member it's boring after you did all the quests.

Anyone knows a good txt-based game?
Or you guys should play GunZ Online International: The Duel Bèta

Design you're own character and slay or kill each other with weapons and swords.

It's very cool Smile
Jamestf347
People play because:
• It's online, so they can play easily and quickly when they're on their computers
• Although the graphics aren't amazing, they are good enough to make the game constantly interesting (for some people: at least for a while and/or if they keep alternating tasks)
• RuneScape is very fun at times; there's never a time when you have nothing to do (the same with most RPGs)
• Not everyone has an Xbox 360 or enough money to buy one (they have a computer because of it's all purpose use; plus, computers are very useful and aren't simply used for entertainment). Of course, they could still buy the PC version, however this is too much hassle for a lot of people
• Many people enjoy the MMO part of MMORPG, not just the RPG part; the multiplayer capability is actually a real enhancement to a game. Even though there are lots of people who try to ruin your gaming experience on RuneScape, this number is easily dwarfed by the number of people playing fairly
• Many people start playing as non-members and many of those who really find the game fun to play will become members. This is far easier than buying an expensive game, remember that most people won't be members for all that long and so in the long run it's also cheaper than buying a game like Oblivion

I'm sure I could think of more reasons, but I don't need to. Oblivion is a very good game, I'm not denying that, but there are many aspects of RuneScape which Oblivion doesn't have that make people prefer RuneScape. Furthermore, Oblivion isn't available in all the same countries as RuneScape is (RuneScape being online and accessible pretty much anywhere). You just have to be able to read English or German (they've just released a German BETA version of the RuneScape website and game) and you can play. Another point is that no installation is required for RuneScape.


As a matter of fact, i like the competitive aspect of the game. Especially if you play against irl friends
pscompanies
It can be fun when you go up to some noobs and u say u gonna give then full iron and u dont, (u go to the general store and sell all they're stuff) then

I agree with James a lot of the points he mentioned about runescape. People play the game because it's good. The graphics of a game aren't at all that important. The most important part of a game is the actual gameplay. Runescape provides a fun environment and the option to do almost anything you want. You have many different skills that you can choose to raise. You can become a warrior, ranger or mage at any point in time. You get to choose from so many different jobs and you can do everything. In most mmos you only get the option of one or two professions. In runescape you can raise them all to max.

Not only that the overall gameplay of Runescape is grand. That's what keeps people coming to the game because they're constantly updating it and releasing new patches that keep the game clean of hackers and bugs. You will always have something to do in that game and quests are being released almost every week.

aha yeah it seems like it's more of something you hear about in school and everyone joins it to play online when their at home. I remember when I played it, it was great! Yeah the graphics weren't in HD yet, and you could easily get tricked or scammed into giving items away, but it made me such a better gamer overall.
Its pretty good still, I log in every once and awhile but it's slowly growing into a very nice free game. Soon it might even be big enough, popular enough, and have stunning graphics and gameplay just like toplevel games do such as World Of Warcraft or other ones.
skilz4never
If u say runescape is a really really bad game then why do so many people play it worldwide. it musnt be that bad. Its just that the start of the game might be boring but later on youl will find it really amusing.

I don't agree with the game's membership being at all expensive. If you look at it from a big picture. You have games like World of Warcraft and Rift that charge a $15.00 monthly fee for their game, plus you have to buy the game with all the expansions that come with it. Runescape's measly $6.00 a month is nothing compared to that. You don't even have to buy the game.
hiwaypilot
It's one of the few MMORPGs that a casual gamer can play. Most online 'world' games require skill building, quest completion and battles to simply remain in the game. You can sign into Runescape and fish while chatting with friends. It's also not as intense as say World of Warcraft or even as consuming as Evercrack. (sorry, EverQuest) It's probably one of the first true 'social' games out there where you can just log in and hang out with others. (It's been around in one form or other for a very long time.) And face it, you don't need a $500 video card just to accommodate the graphics.

I will agree with you on this one. I find that runescape is a good way to interact with your friends in a simple log in and play with no need to download any third party programs, but the game is old and lacking now. No matter how much they try to improve the graphics or gameplay, it's just never going to be the same. Jagex should look into making a new runescape with improved graphics and gameplay. This would make everyone start new characters in a whole new world. Something different for a change.

Once you're getting rich, it gets more fun. You get to do more stuff and you're not stuck there, doing something repetitive and boring just to make a little bit of money. Just recently they brought back staking and wild which is a very good and easy way to make money, but it can be also be a very good way to lose it. I don't play this game anymore, considering I barely have the time, but from time to time, I log in and what can I say? I still enjoy it.

It really doesn't matter if you're rich or not. The game is just boring nowadays.

I remember that game, the name reminded me of something but now I know what it was!

I have spent lots of time playing it, together with my friend. He got to level 70 or likely while I got 40, haha.

Community was rather children (just like I was) full of spammers and gold traders but I liked the gameplay. Getting new skill or killing even stronger mob was like today's achievements in various MMOs.

Graphics and MIDI audio were awful, but the gameplay was kind of addictive and forced to play, at least a bit a day.

Finished my adventure with the game when (as I remember) some Diablo-like dungeon was implemented. Don't know the name, I just got reward of 10k coins and some colorful shoes Smile.

Now, Runescape is rather classic game, just to see how did first so casual MMO look. There are coming more and more browser MMOs with brilliant graphics supported not only by java but also WebGL - as I suppose this technology will be used sooner or later to generate full scale game.

They are coming out with a thing called "Combat Beta", it's going to make the game about tactics instead of luck. There will be new weapons, and new graphics.

Oh silly me, I thought it was about grinding.

I'm too impatient to play Runescape. Once I got to around Level 75, it just started to take so long to level up a skill, to the point where I resorted to botting to level up. Now I very rarely play this game, unless I am really bored one day.

It's a very good timekiller, yes.

I played a character to level 60 back in the day, but got bored and started playing LotRO...still haven't come back permanently, but I rolled a new character about a month ago to look at things. It's a lot more MMO-like these days... but the graphics are still icky and it is still a browser/java based game...

"MMO-like" is a strange adjective. Does that mean things have just gotten more homogenous?

I can relate to this. I'm also one of those who resorted to botting in this game at one point in time. Though I shortly quit the game afterwards.

It's interesting to note that botting is almost immediately followed by quitting, even though it should seem to increase the "fun" anyway. But if a robot can play your game more effectively than a human, there's a design problem somewhere...

I agree; however, Jagex has rolled out several updates recently; most notable is the Evolution of Combat; if you haved played within the last 6 months, I suggest giving it another chance, atleast until you get where I am Smile.

I never played it, but heard of it. It seemed fun when I was younger... Time passes.

My brother and I tried it out, were pleasantly surprised. Dungeoneering was also pretty fin.

Dont you go spreading bad things about jagex, everyone must earn a living some way.

Anyway, I love Runescape, but I no longer play since I am freeto-play and have limited Internet data...

Runescape gives a ton of content al for freee, andif you pay a little money each month, you get much much more. What more could you expect? They do updates almost weekly, so I dont know what your complaining about... would you rather buy Minecraft which is a stupid game or would you like to play a high quality gme that is constntly updated --- I bet the openi ng poster doesnt even know about the Evolution of Combat!
