Yep, you know you're old school when you realise that most people who say they are old school are lying.



Here's an example from the rants forum..





Ive been playing rs for 8 YEARS...


um runescape just celebrated its 5th birthday....




honestly peoples, Runescape was released in 1999 (Runescape Classic). Runescape 2 was released in 2001. Therefore, sure, he could've played for 8 years.


Capone Sabre since April 2001.
99 Attack, Defence, Strength and Hitpoints Achieved January 2005. When it still meant something.

You know you are old school when you remember sleeping in sleeping bags to lower your fatigue.

You know you are old school when you remember people like Lilyuffie, Pete, Andy, and Adx, Eugene, and Bonebreaker.

You're oldschool if you used knife bug to train your pures :|. OR if you visited black hole.



Well this isn't very "oldschool" but at least you started playing in rsc if you got 60 agility on f2p world 8).




Thats not oldschool to use knife bug, thats just lame and cheating.




=D> Even if it's lame and cheating i still think it's pretty oldschool if you played during that time 8).




oxymoron. pures really werent even "invented" when the knife bug was out.




Holy shit. I must be some sort of genius if i'm smart enought to create account for pking :uhh: .




uh people had "pures" before wilderness, and the knife bug got "really" exploited like 3-6 months after wilderness was out.



hell, me and mrsquishynut had pures 4/5 months after the game was released. go around killing miners and random people in banks. -_-

runecrafting was released along side rs2 so you probably played rsc if you started before runecrafting

You know you're old school:



When you know you changed password and recovery question in the game itsself

When you know about catching (pk wise)

When you remember the hourly messages on holidays

When you know people could play with shemales

When you couldn't move your view up so you couldn't see giants' hitpoints

When you remember the big dupe

When you remember seeing no one beg and having everybody help you (I miss the friendly community of classic :cry: )

When you know what someone means with a "large"

When you know almost every pure was a melee pure with 1 def, 40 att and str as high as possible

When you remember being not able to wear picks and wc axes

When you remember dragon slayer as a very VERY hard quest

When you saw people training combat hardcore at red spiders





All I can think of for now, also I wasn't member so I know nothing about that

I can vaguely remember that.

How about when you remember the Cabbage Patch outside Lumby as the PKing Hotspot.

Err, wrong.



I started in 2002 (5 years ago) and it was still RSC in January. RS2 I believe started in 2004. So let's see, I played 2 years of RSC, all of that information can easily be found on wikipedia by the way. Runescape (RSC) did NOT start until 2001 you idiot. Sorry to be rude. Considering Party Hats were dropped Christmas of 2001 and I came in after that (2002). NO ONE could have played for EIGHT years, considering the entire world of Runescape has only been around for 6 1/2, 7 next year.

CERTS, DO YOU KNOW THEM? :|



You could cert fish, ores and bars on free servers. On member servers you could also cert some of the logs near ardounge and dragon bones(?) and super sets(?) in yanille. Not sure about yanille and ardounge ones as i never used them.
