I play RS now as I can skill while work on phone=D
Can't play any other MMO as don't have time....
RS can be semi afk playable=D

What i hate the most about:

1. Customer Service is freaking joke, they don't even offer any possibility to contact them directely.

2.Game runned by f2p bots, nobody care about or unable to stop. Both options means: FAIL

3.Nobody care if you scamm, but all care if scammer complain about being called like that on forum. Means: free flow to all game criminals.

4.Anything happend to you is allways your fault, Jagex is 100% innocent, even if they never, or not enough, publish what you need to be carefull with in game.

Game is fun, can be good as cheap entertainment, but Jagex need to grow up from kids age and start to repair own faults faster.

IMO: they were "OMG we won!" at 2007 with 5mil subs, so they made all to kill golden egg chicken by changing game to communist dictatorship=D

Now I guess they just have not enough cash to do all, as are so many games on market now.


try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.

Two words...Customer Service...or the lack thereof.  Try to contact the company. Outside of  the very limited forms you can submit, you can't just pick up the phone and call them for any reason.  You can't send them an email.  It's rediculous. I played this game for about 6 years, maxed out character with several 99 capes, then my account was hacked.  


You'd think the person holding the Credit Card that's been paying for the sub for years would be the one that gets the account, but I don't think an actual person reads any of it.  A bot, locks, unlocks, bans and denies appeals.


I'm curious, has this gotten any better?  Can you pick up the phone and explain a situation to anyone?


 


 


 


This is whats worse with Runescape than vertually all other games. People playing WOW etc got their accounts back and included the gear they had but NOT in Runescape - what the hacker takes is gone forever. As for what we pay; far too many people don't realise the price has increased from $5US to $7.95US but I know the Australian Dollar is worth more than the US and our NZ Dollar is even more unfairly rated. This is even more proof of how Jagex is similar to the Nigerian bank account hackers as both are trying to take all your money for nothing. I actually think someone that knows how to contact Interpol should inform them how Jagex operates because Jagex actually operate against their own rules that they made for the game!


Then of course I hate the lagg that cuts us out of trying to relax playing. The bott accounts do the same as they take most the gear we try to collect and only to trade to a silly kid that thinks he/she is a hero with max levels although doesn't even know how the game works. So many botters mean such a small community of us real people thus it's hard to have a good conversation now. And of course if you have botters and gold selling sites, the game is so destroyed since High Scores etc don't mean a thing any more

  • Grind
  • Bots
  • Hand Pain from all the clicking
  • Lack of free content
  • PvP gank squads
  • Crafters forced into PvP areas for rare resources
  • Chat spam filled with really retarded scams that stupid kids actually fall for "lulz i dubble yur goldz TRADE MEH"
  • Magic costs too much, runes can get pricey, especially death runes which are only craftable by members and always in short supply forcing mages to use inferior spells
  • Rangers can only be good if they're members, their armor demands it
  • Melee is OP due to lack of mages to balance the power
  • Bad enemy AI
  • No player guild system

I've found out from some people close to the friends of Jagex staff the full truth of Runescape failure!

Hacking has happened to over 95% of accounts which aren't simply one stat item collecting bots.

The way the majority of hacking has happened is the Jagex staff tell their mates how to hack accounts just by name and then those so called friends go and tell their mates aswell. In the end lots are knowing how to hack without anything apart from the account name. I know now this is clearly how my account was hacked 3 times. Clearly by trying to be outspoken for honesty and making the game fair, all it does is attract a scum hacker that decides you are a perfect target. Apparently it's the more experienced people in Jagex mostly to blame and such an unfair lot to the decent workers there that they force the honest people out one way or the other. Even these upset people have gone online to let the public know how to hack accounts aswell, but this now hits even more of us honest players.

This simply seems like Internet Fraud and they use the addictiveness of the game to control it.

seems to me Jagex lie all time, now to make people shut up, then even removed rants forum, which was most popular, as nothing works good in this game....

now new loyalty program is just face palm, IMO, means if you sub now you gonna get points, but if you got sub for 6 months or 1 year already, you get 0 rewards.

all freaking "marketing" works same way....

game still ruled by bots, have tons of bugs

IMO not worth to spend money on it.

Years ago, my account was hacked. Company did nothing to assist with the problem. I recovered it on my own and then never returned. There is a fair amount I am willing to put up with, that is not one of them. Also, the graphics are old, the controls are dated and there isn't much going for Runescape these days.

They still doing nothing about hack... I find it non professional, non commercial & just stupid.
Some work on tracking hacker would not kill them I guess. beside how stupid is loose client because of pixels return. But well Jagex is outdated, same as whole game

I stopped playing about 8 months ago now. What pushed me away? The community did. Most of the time I felt like I was sitting in with a bunch of first graders. When I found out my clan leader was 8, I decided to call it quits.

So now there's another update with new graphics. Thanks to all the kid noodys for demanding better graphics as this is how Fagex have slowed every single ability down now by over 25 times what it used to take to get any item like a log from a tree or ore from a rock or even hitting an enemy (including adding heaps of no hits and changing the damage from 99 to 999) thus all the silly immature kids have no idea of how this game is the worst gaming scam in existance. Now about 95% or more just bot it but amazingly too many idiots must be paying for gear and accounts as too many bots are 1 skill workers. If you calculate it back then probably about 5000 people are playing including babysitting their bots. For the very few still trying to play after so many years, please make them see the light and give up aswell.

The community for starters. Jagex has been making updates to content such as the tutorial and tasks that attract a younger age group. And I mean really, really young. Not only that, but the amount of bots ruin the game. Jagex doesn't even ban them anymore.

Some complications happened when I was like 13, and lost my account. During the effort to get it back, a friend introduced me to Guild Wars.

 

This was like, late 2006. I'd never even heard of another MMO(even WoW) at that point to be totally honest. I was so young. I was so blown away by the graphics, controls, and combat of Guild Wars that I'd totally forgotten about Runescape.

 

But looking back on the game, it did so many things incredible for a broswer based MMO. I loved the questing, because it actually felt like a quest. Especially, what I believe to be, the last non-member quests where you slay a dragon at the end of it and there were lots of puzzles. That was really cool!

They also had those special events that would freak me out/excite me. Like, a random princess or something popped up and gave me a frog mask if I kissed her? I can't remember all too well because it was 4 years ago, but I do remember that player housing thing being pretty cool to toy with as well.

The music was freaking lovely! I liked how when you went to certain areas, it unlocked parts of the soundtrack that you could go back at any time and play. Loved, loved, loved almost all of them as I remember

I liked the holiday things they did. Like, I think my favorite was... was it a ring? It was something for easter, and it turned the caster into an egg. Those were good times.

I felt awesome when I became a White Knight for the first time. The entire initation process made me truely feel like I was a part of the organization.

 

I think the biggest reasons I didn't/won't pursue playing that game again is because I didn't have any friends to go back to at that point. I'd totally lost touch with the community and I don't find it worth the effort to start new friendships in there when I'm currently involved in so much other stuff, including but not limited to school and maintaining somewhat of a recognizably healthy social life outside of the personas I maintain online. But all in all, I thought, and still think today that it was well worth the time and money spent playing, however, I'm speaking off pure nostalgia of my gameplay experience of Runescape 4 or 5 years ago. The game can be completely different now.

So.. After they brought the Wildy back, I resubbed to Runescape, but I just can;t take the repetition. It is so insanely repetitious and boring, it is really hard to even bother to log in.  The worst part I think that pushes me away is I had already maxed my character, now you come back and all their updates want you to repeat content when this game has no enjoyment in replayability. Repeating what we have already done makes the game worse not better.  I guess I just do not have the heart to repeat the same boring tasks that I hated the first time I did them, that and they always expand on the things I hated most in the game .. like capes. I dropped my first 99 skill cape the day they came out because I thought they blew chunks. I hated capes to begin with then they went like cape bizirk instead of implementing " fun factor " updates.  I hated pets when they had cat quests then what did they do? Add an entire skill about pets. UGH... runs back to FPS  games until Guild Wars 2 comes out.

The community.

 

I enjoy playing the game in my own space and with chat "off", when I do turn it on I am faced with abuse and botting reports. Tonight was the breaking point.

 

So, I have quit - the second and final time.

Botscape is what it is, Jagex is unable to deal with bots.
Prices goes down all time & nobody can win against bot.
It just not fun....
Jagex keep lie about almost everything, but they cant offer good management of this game.

I play atm as I'm waiting for any decent MMO to come out, and RS we can play semi AFK, so it good for working same time. =D

Slow and clunky interface. I've died due to the game's interface being slow and unresponsive... dying due to poor gameplay choices is one thing. Dying and losing items because of a poor interface is another altogether.

Too much clicking to do basic tasks; not intuitive at all.

Horrible, *horrible* path finding. I don't mind click-to-move in games. What I do mind is having my character walk in a zig-zag in a completely open area to get to a spot that's 10 feet away.

I would like Runescape more if the world was fucking gigantic, if the PVE was very similar to EQ1, if the skill grind wasn't as monstrous, if the game ran smoothly, if it would let you zoom the camera out much further, and if grouping for PVE was enhanced. It would take all those things at a minimum, at least.
