RuneScape Is Dead For Good

Jagex has made some major changes in the way RuneScape is run. Supposedly they are trying to stop real world item trading, but its just a cover up. All they want is to control teh economy, with the grand exchange, and the other new rules they have complete control. RuneScape is no longer the freedom game, its on lockdown!

First of all, no more wilderness basicly. Real PKing is gone. Sucks right. Now listen to this, to supposedly stop real world item trading you can only trade 3k below to 3k above what the item is worth.  This means no more gifts, yes no more scamming but thats the only good thing. But there is a big problem in teh economy. Who do you think decides what the prices are for items, Jagex. What do you think has happened to every Christmas drop from back in the day, prices way up because Jagex regrets that drop because the players liked it. So ya, say goodbye to RuneScape.

Just so ya know I played RuneScape since January 06 to just a couple months ago but I still check the homepage. And the Rants forum is flooded.

 

Here is most of the stuff that is now gone.

- No trading cooked for raw/raw for cooked
- No trading herbs for seeds/seeds for herbs
- No trading herbs+seconds+vials for pots
- No trading straight herbs for pots
- No trading cannonballs for steel bars
- No trading fletching supplies for finished products
- No giving double nats
- No trading hides for range armor sets
- No running bones to someone at your altar
- No law running
- No running planks for someone
- No training firemaking and woodcutting together. One person cuts the logs and gives to someone else to burn.
- No hiring people to tan your hides for you
- No giving free loads of fish to people when you're power
fishing
- NO World 16, air's for essance program.
- No tab making companies
- No ore running
- No X-Mas Gifts, No helping friends no charity to new players!
- No ESS FOR RUNES >.<
- No BARS FOR ARMOR
- No ore for knives
- No reliable way to make money
- No drop parties
- No rewards from clan wars
- No chivalry in pking
- No customer service
- No fun
- No point in playing anymore.

 

RuneScape of course isn't the best game out there, but it WAS decent. I liked to see a game grow like it did with updates almost every day. I liked the economy, watching prices rise and fall as updates come out, but now theres none of that. Guess I'll have to change my username on this site, lol. Lets just wait for Darkfall now. Get some real freedom.

 

Now I will take a look back at some of the moments in RuneScape's history.

Release- 20th MMO

Change from 2d to bad 3d

Farming

Slayer

Construction

Falador Massacre

Clan Chat

Graphical changes and small minigames

DEATH

 Summoning Skill (When there are about 5 people left playing, the mods)

 

RuneScape 2/27/02 - 12/11/07

RIP RuneScape

Die Jagex

One Thing RuneScape Needs to Do

     The first MMORPG I played was RuneScape. It's a browser game with pretty low quality graphics. The game is so addicting, but the one of the big problems it has is it's Free Version. I'm not aware of any other game that has an unlimited play free version of the game. RuneScape has about 1/8 of the game in the Free Version, not to mention double the scammers, double the autoers, and yes...double the 6 year olds. Also, on just about every MMORPG site I've been to (include MMOPRG.com) it lists RuneScape as a Free Game. It does'nt even mention the Members Version which is supposed to be the main version of the game. If Jagex Ltd. (FYI- Jagex= Java gaming experts) entirely got rid of this Free Version that doesn't benifit them, Members, or people that don't play the game at all. All it's doing is saying "Hey autoers free version of the game for you to hack right here!!".  For any of you who have not played the MEMBERS VERSION OF RUNESCAPE for over 3 months then please don't tell me off about RuneScape. The free version SUCKS, the members version rocks.

     To tell you how good this game is, if Jagex were to ENTIRE re-make the game (which they have done before from what is now called RuneScape Classic to RuneScape 2) then it would be much more popular. And I mean ENTIRELY remake it. They make it not a browser game (although it is nice for people that have sucky computers so they could atleast keep the browser version on there) so they could have better graphics and sound. Program it in something other than Java so they could make a better game, but then they would have to change their companies name =/ . My point is, if RuneScape got rid of free game, and started working on RuneScape 3, then we would see RuneScape with a 7.5-7.9 rating here on MMO.com.

  Also:  

     Some of these "unknown" things in the game list need to be known. Like for instance Darkfall which is a totall all PvP game which is stated in the Overview but stil has a '?' for PvP or no PvP. Same with many other games. It would help some people who may not know about certain games to get the information they want from the game list.

Who I Am

     I've been playing MMORPG's for 1 year and nine months.I started with RuneScape on 1-1-2006. I quited just a couple weeks ago because the game is simply overrun by scammers, autoers, and 6 year olds. Still, the best Java game ever made. Don't let my lack of actual experience fool you, though. I've played WoW, but only for a couple weeks when I got in trouble and had to quit. There are some games that I want to play badly like City of Heros/Villains and DAoC, but I just don't have the money.

     I am also interested in programming, and I have just started that journey. I just bought a book, installed Dev-C++ and started with it. But I'm not here to talk about that.

     I am waiting for Darkfall and WAR to be realesed. But Darkfall is an whole other post in itself. Long story short (for now) Darkfall realesed Summer 2008 beta this Winter. One of my friends says Chronicles of Spellborn will be great, but I haven't really looked into it yet.

    To me, I'd play any MMORPG over a console game any day (unless its an RPG. Then it would be decided by what MMORPG it is). Consoles try to take over PC games, except the Wii. To me the Wii is the best because its unique, first of its kind.

     With more posts in this blog I'll talk about just my opinions on released games and those under devolopement. I am more into the "Sandbox" MMO type. More player run economies, its all about the players. It's all about skills too. I hate having to define what I mean by skills....What I mean skills is actuall skills, a persons skills. Not skill advancement.

     So this is just a short post about what kind of gamer I am. To most of you I am a definate noob to MMO's because when I was 4 years old you were playing UO. Atleast I'm not totally clueless...
