The only hing pushing me away is that I played it for 5 years and enjoyed every second. Now I'm tired of the game.

How about it's an old, been there done that, has been?

RS is arguably one of the best games ever made but with todays standards its never going to be more than a classic, even with the graphics upgrades which really don't amount to much.

Personally RS is in a very short list of genre defining games, some of them having shaped what I want from new games. That doesn't mean i won't to go back there, i want new and improved not old and done.

Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

Honestly? Some kid used to play it in the school library and it looked naff. That was probably back in 2002. Haven't even looked at it since then...

And I thought I was open-minded >_> lol

I played it for some time a few years back, but got bored of it, so I moved on, just like I have with many other games.

 

There were an awful lot of asshats though, even back then.

I played RuneScape the first year it came out. I was excited to play it, as I loved playing games like this. I think at that time, the graphics were way better and everything was easier to configure. Now everything is 2D, and shouldn't even be considered a MMORPG.

Are you talking about RuneScape ? It's full 3D, and one of the best example of an MMORPG.

game is also real

LOL now they got rid of bots (who know how to), but reduced number of servers, lag & dc make game even more unplayable then before.

server's quality are so poor then we can compare only to bad asisan f2p games.

anyhow, if you can play anything else, better not to stay at RS, IMO

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

The quality of severs didn't change. The amount was reduced, but the lag your getting is from the new system that got rid of bots. I have no issues, and if it was server related it'd be affecting everyone.

Draron, I wonder why you don't have any lag & most of people have or lag or dc etc...

Lately Windows made emergency shut up and I wonder if RS used data collection program which was seen as virus or sorta by Windows.

I updated Java but still have lag and time to time need to reload RS page due to *update*.


Game still lame to play, you never know when you be out...

I don;t have lag either. No firewall/antivirus issues as well.  It very well could be your system and setup. I built my computer and gutted my Operating system though simply because I do not like an OS that does anything without my permission. I manually shut down ports as well though, and rewrote the registry to my liking. So that could be a factor.

What made me stop playing the game was when I needed another person to help me finish a quest. Sorry, but if I can't solo, I don't play (and I was paying). I don't mind grouping up, but I don't tolerate a game telling me I have to group up.

-Horrible graphics

-Outdated gameplay

-Probably the most grindy non koreanf2p game ever

-No actual interesting plot ( i am a lore junkie)

-Elistist community

 

The game has a few good ideas which would be cool if implemented in a new gen mmo,  but other than that....

And to those who say "The game can be x if you make it to", that is a fallacy that can be applied to even playing with a rock in the park.

Looking at the latest news one of the "Updates" I see says Double Cash this Weekend on Squeal of Fortune! and in the top discussion I see Scary Bonus XP Weekent! Which means putting 60 minutes of effort in doesn't always mean 60 minutes of results but sometimes a few hours or more. Which means that the one thing which  once made Runescape good isn't there anymore since you can buy XP or be on at certain times to get more XP.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

My adventure log is an example of how easy it is with SOF + bonus xp just for pretty much logging in and clicking a few xp lamps and not even 15 min in game. Also pretty much got handed 40 mil on SOF too. So, it literally takes no effort what so ever to level up.

Runescape has very interesting quests and I really enjoyed doing them, but combat is very obsolete and too much grind. If they reduce it or at least make it very rewarding experience, I won't play it again. Everything else is okay, huge world, good graphics (for a browser game), decend music (they still use midi instead of mp3 quality sounds but you get used to it), huge community, big economy etc.

The main reason i don't playi s that after hours of grinding like mining, makes you fill like a bot. Mine 30 coals run to bank and store them, then run back to mine etc.. You get like 120 xp per coal and you need like 10 mill xp for max? Calculate how many months you will be doing the same thing until you reach you goal. This game will melt your brain down. However, it is very addictive and thats dangerous mix!

I don't understand the obsession of people with maxing, I love leveling as anyone else and I take advantage of any event made by Jagex in which bonus xp is offered but it just don't care about it, when I am in the mood and have enough money or resources banked I deliberately grind some skills but when I generally run out of resources before I get bored. I only play, I just worry about having fun and the skilling will come as a consequence of my everyday playing. I really enjoy my high levels I have amassed in all these years of game but I really expect my maxing delays years and years because the dreamed 99 in all levels keep me motivated and playing, well I think I will find hard the day when I get 99 in all and all the quests done, what else will I do? well I have faith more skills and more quests will be added in the years to come so I always will have something new to do in the vast world of Gielinor.

If I could play it with the 2005/2006 client and graphics and without the combat upgrade and the move toward their version of raiding (drops are not only slightly better than crafted but way better).  Then I'd sub back in a heartbeat.  Even if my membership would no longer be $5

 

*Edit, also the community has taken a dive for the worst.  Maybe I was getting older but I feel like even playing when I was younger everyone seemed to be more mature than half the players you run into now

I still jump in and play occasionally, but it gets monotonous fast. It's way too grindy.

ive noticed that.  In reality it is probably because those we played with made it enjoyable.  I just looked at my maxed friends list (was 200 at the time don't know if it still is) and 3 people were on.  It was the chatting to pass the time while you chopped a tree that actually made chopping a tree fun
