Runescape Cons

jargon11jargon11 Member Posts: 9

I used to play Runescape. I was and still am, in love with QUALITY browser games. Did you catch me saying "used to?" If you did, good. It's not a quality browser game anymore, for reasons including:

  • Spam bots, especially at the "Grand Exchange" (Marketplace)

  • It's geared more towards younger people, nowadays. More anoying children. (No offense meant.)

  • Poor graphics

  • Not very immersive in later stages (Levels 50+ or so)

Who agrees with my general viewpoint on RS that the bad outweighs the good in this game? Does there happen to be any other reasons? Perhaps a brave defender of the Runescape?

    I don't know whether it's sad, or funny...

    You are on the right path there. It's approximately 80% botter accounts aswell as at least 10% hacked accs the hacker is botting it up but destroying peoples huge fortune they spent to play to a decent level before they got hacked.

    Now if thats not bad enough, Jagex have failed totally with the promise they make to genuine players by allowing botters everywhere in the game now. Add to their failure is all the hackers you report they do nothing at all to stop them. If you list every hacker on you ignore list that you know, watch it daily & keep a list as their player acc names change every month trying to loose track of them by the original owner. By my estimation, with about 5 direct hacker accounts that i'm aware of, these alone destroy 500 to 1000 accounts in a few months.

    So what do they do with the stuff you wonder:

    First there's Faldor Party so these hackers get their mates together then get on the hacked account and throw a party so their mates get all the gear.  A mate of mine was told of the party the hacker on my account was throwing so he went and he got a BGS which is an item I never ever had on my account.. When he got it, all the others there harrassed the hell out of him demanding he wasn't supposed to be in that party since it was just for friends - remember it was on my account so he actually was the only friend out of all them. After i'll try to find an incomplete list of the items they hacked or partied away with from my account, Jagex don't even give any credit to your level to have the luck to get much aquired again and into the 8th month since being hacked i'm still struggling with no luck as far as drops etc.

    The other thing hackers do is go into PVP worlds, mainly BH one-on-one worlds, where they take their account while the hacker or a mate takes the stolen account and of course they easy kill a defenseless hacked account full of great gear and thus get a massive reward.

    Then of course there's Jagex themselves, their accounts are manipulating the GE Merch lot and they collect lots from these hacked accounts which they pump prices up so the genuine accounts can't afford much at all. There is rumours from so many that Jagex Player Mods are all botting all the time they are off and in doing so they compete to see if they can bott better than other computer cheat nerds.

    Crazy as it seems, nowdays Jagex want to reward the best botter like the present award for the best outfit. Who do you think will win this; a botter or the hacker? Each seems to make endless cash so it's may the best cheat  idiot win.

    Also don't forget the graphic changes too as mentioned above me. This does a lot of mess too slowing us down with lagg so more cash comes in and also having so much detail that even smithing cannon-balls is a forever going task simply for more Jagex cash. If there was an award for the most dishonourable game-maker then Jagex would win hands down. If you look on the home page of the game you will see the lie about Runescape being the No.1 Free to Play game and yet so few play it free at all. In the site there are heaps of games that are free with far more people playing them.

    Considering we wanted to play this game for freedom and relaxation, Jagex are actually killing the pigeon carrier and their income will crash once people are sick of the silly tricks Jagex, botter and hackers keep playing on decent people.

    I can't wait till yet another Jagex fool dies from being a no-lifer too. I have spent years warning players of the danger of that and still many do die. Reports say they don't know the reason but it's clearly game no-lifing with no daylight, thus no sun for making Vitamin D and thus nothing to prevent fatal disease. Look up Drmercola on google and see in the archives what it says about 'Sunlight' & 'Vitamin D' amongst a myriad of other health important information.

    It's agreed that runescape is TOTALLY boring when you are lvl 50+ because all you do is battle and do loooooooooooooooong quests that waste money and time.
