allright people who hate runescape go ahead and post about runescape in anyway u want because in all ur just trying to put people who play down and sadly its not working too well...runescape was a classic game in which people could just do there own thing and lvl up or whateve. If many of u did not know runescape is making more money then most games out there right now they are making close to 5 million a month and of course its not that great of a game anymore i played it a long time and got very bored of it. yes alot of the things u people say are true so i say go for it!.....but let me tell u this u and many more are just giving jagex ideas and they will continue to grow.....So people who hate runescape and people who love it post here but plz dont rebuke others thoughts...thanx

    Seriously it's the worst game i'll ever play. Jagex never listens to the free players and are only concerned with making money. I wouldn't be surprised if they just made runescape p2p.

    Yes, it's a pretty bad game. But with no download, next to no loading time, zero lag, tons of skills, and a (Yes, I will say it) overall friendly community it does have its strongpoints. Perfect for newbz with terrible computers like me.

    You're right, I said the community is good. The problem is most of you don't play the Member version. There are FAR fewer noobs, beggars, hackers, and scammers there. Almost every person I meet I feel the need to add them to my friends list because they all give me a lasting friendly impression. I'm level 110 and have more level 80s on my list than most level 80s.

    Why is that? Because in Runescape most (not all) level gaps are bridged. I'm not talking extreme gaps like level 100 to level 50, but between two real players that share the same opinions the friends list can get pretty varied. It's not like in most games where you can reach the max level of (not to point any fingers at WoW) 60 within a few months of playing, and not even religiously. I have played for five years now in December, and am still not even halfway to level 126 experience-wise, which is the max.

    Updates every week or two, who can argue with that? Granted, many updates are lame quests or unneeded improvements, but they are there nonetheless. On the topic of quests and updates, there is more gameplay in Runescape than every other MMO I've played combined. Over twenty skills each of which take 13 million experience to max (In the fastest of skills you can get that in about 100 hours, in the slowest but often most rewarding skills this would take about 2-3,000,) and now over one hundred quests. They aren't all fluffer quests like most games where you run to one NPC from another NPC and kill a wolf or two in between. Some take five hours WITH a good online guide, and perhaps weeks without.

    Not to mention the equipment. There are tons of variations of armor, robes, leather, and weapons. Sure, the actual character appearances are lacking, but I've seen worse. Some equipment, such as the newer Capes of Achievement, require real time and patience. Others, such as the valuable rare holiday items like the Party Hat, require a healthy Runescape bank account or a looooot of time. And the elusive Fire Cape, which gives great stat bonuses, takes skill, timing, and about two hours of sitting time per shot. Or a friend that's good at getting them.

    One thing I hate is the customer support. I sent in an appeal for all four of my black marks (all ridiculously dumb offenses) and all four came back with the same automated message saying that "We apologize, but we have evidence stating that you were in control of your account at the time of the offense." I appealed for customer support mistake, not "I was hacked!"

    Yes, Runescape isn't the best. Yes, it can be very immature at times. But there are still a lot of mature players, and the Roleplay and Stories sections of their official forums are always a hoot to look at. It's cheap, fun, addicting, and extensive. I've quit many times in my five year run, and I'm sure I will quit many times in the future. But I know that eventually I will always come back. I would much rather pay 60 bucks for a year of Runescape than 50 for a console game I'll play for a max of 100 hours (which is like playing Runescape only 15-20 minutes a day for a year, for almost the same price) or 150+ a year for a "bigger" MMO. Say what you want, you can have your elves and +5 Warhammers of Thunder. Give me an Abyssal Whip, full Guthan armor, and I'll be set.

     

    EDIT: Ooooh, didn't even read your comment about money Gamers. Explain to me why other MMOs cost 50 bucks upfront with 15 more a month and NO trial, then tell me why Jagex is greedy with a Free To Play version containing most skills, many quests, and a good chunk of the map, while the full agme only costs 5 a month with no upfront?

    We are not trying to put people down who play this game. We are merely expressing our opinions about how bad we think RS sucks.

    They're making the most money? That's just plain out stupid, ever heard of World of Warcraft? Besides, the game is horrible, it's boring, dull and has a horrible community. RuneScape = >:(

    *cough* WoW makes about 50 million a month, not counting the realm tranfers, the hundreds, maybe thousands of people who buy the game everyday, and the money that is made from Blizzard selling their beautiful product to stores accros the whole world. Besides, most people post because the game truly is a honking piece of donkey shit. BTW, Mikem8, I saw the contents of the your post that was deleted, and that is totally true.

    At first i loved this game, i thought it was brilliant and no game could even touch it. i was 12, i was obsessed stayed for ages playing trying to get the quest done/get the next lvl get the best weopon, but then i opened my eyes. the only game i ever looked at was RUNESCAPE, it looks gr8 but then check out all the other games out there, runescape is rubbish compared. peopl e wo play it arent sad but they just havent looked at other choices. since then ive played WoW, EVE, GW, EQ2 and many other i cant remember. but what u cant get from any other game but runescape is the variaty in what u can do, so many lvls to get up which takes ages, loads of things to make.. u cant get in any game but it lacks in graphics, sound effects, combat, and not enough for f2p (i was a p2p). people can play better games now that are value for money, jagex need to improve fast to compete. this game is for 10 - 12 yr olds i think after 12 they can play more advanced games.

    Here is my opinion; I've been playing for about 2 or 3 years now, and I don't hate it. The main way not to get bored with this game is to not play it every single second of every single minute of every single hour and so on and so forth. I can get very bored of this game sometimes, so I take a break from it, then I go back to it and play it until I get bored again, then I just take a break again.

    overall friendly community it does have its strongpoints




    Did you just say.... runescape and friendly community in the same sentance? Runescapes community is *anything* but friendly.

  • pk3rpurepk3rpure Member Posts: 86
    runescape has ups and downs. If ur a member (which doesn't cost much) no n00bs bother u and it's almost impossible to do all the quests. The downside it graphics. I rate the graphics 2/10

    Well one good thing about runescape would have to be the skill choices, many many skillz, I got into fishing and all my fighting skillz, did some fletching and woodcutting, and well, i have to say even though bad graphics,sound, and community, there are a fair choice of skillz, many quests (i found these quests very boring and the humor they put in it is just terrible...13+?? its bull i bet half the community is 6 years old seriusly) and not mentioned much is the amazing economy, my first 10m was easy just because so many lazy people who dont want to make 100k more for the time of 5mins...The market forums are always used and its really easy to merchant if u have the skill to just sit and type...or post one thread...



    The good               The bad          The ugly

    skillz                        Community         Everything

    quest number            Community         i cant call them graphics...

    market forum             Sound

                                    Combat



                          The Verdict

        "hey guys!, i got five bucks and no life! Lets go make runescape!"



    With no offence to jagex cuz they are making at least 5 million yen?peso? nope! USD
