  1. It was a bad joke about it being replaced by reddit :^(
  2. I really like the upvote/downvote system and karma tracking both comments and submissions!
  3. 3 lol must have had a shitposting period in 2011 2 of them are spam in other too long ago to get details, and the other warning point is for my signature being too large
  4. wasn't lightning the second ever play to sign up to runescape iirc and yeah rip forums as an entire style, I don't play runescape anymore but I have never considered using anything but reddit for league of legends
  5. I think it is horribly flawed to suggest that OSRS some how 'keeps familiarity' when RS3 does not - both are mmorpg with regular updates so OSRS is moving away from the familiar ground that returning players would know in the same was RS3 has. Not to mention the idea that OSRS has 'more bosses' is daft, RS3 has plenty of new boss mobs too. And it's not like the new combat system can be used as a 'keeps players away' thing any more when there is legacy combat mode, momentum, revolution and preset hotbars all of which help people transition from the old to the new system if they wish too and, unlike at launch, people understand the new combat now so there is plenty of guides and info out there to tell you whats what instead of everyone being like OMG 20 MILLION NEW THINGS TO CLICK. Also how does it make sense that you think RS3 having higher xp rates has gone "too far" yet in the next sentence you take issue with it being a "massive time investment" to reach end-game content? You can't have lower xp rates AND smaller time investment they are kind opposite ends of the scale. Also I don't see how in one breath you moan Jagex has been inactive to the changing game market and in the next moan about microtransactions - the biggest change to the games market as a whole these past 2 or 3 years is the move towards microtransactions and Jagex has made that move without completely selling out to a pay-to-win structure. (I mean yes bonds let you buy gp which lets you buy good gear, but it's not as direct or as op as some games do and arguably we could all buy gold already just not within the rules) I had another look at osrs while procrastinating from exams today and it has already moved well past the point where anything is familiar not that that is a bad thing and I am sure if I had been playing the game I would have wanted the new content, but the same mistakes of making weapons armor etc more and more powerful whips are useless again is happening all over again. Not to mention the real problem of there are no new players coming in and everyone wants endgame content
  6. shame, if something like this had been released 2 years ago it might have kept me around as it was sort of the type of open world pvp I was dreaming of. Too long gone to care now

    10 years

    I think I lost like a year on my join date due to the forums dieing at some point
  8. 200k/hr runecraft exp sounds horrifying when it used to be slow enough that it was faster to train it with effigys
  9. all I remember from that site is killing zezimas dungeon in some game I can't remember the name of. Oh and that worms clone was ok as well

    Today...

    Were you the guy that got ddosed awhile back? mm no point getting mad about it now because so long ago, but was always sure it was someone here who sold my ip as it stopped when I stopped using my main ip for tipit.

    Today...

    logged onto tipit for the first time in ages. The procrastination from studying is strong.
  12. I love mtg, I play green-blue infect in modern and try and force esper control into standard.
  13. logged in for no real reason, don't plan on playing again just wanted to stare at the stupid stuff in my bank for a bit. any of that stuff worth surprising amounts now
  14. I did very little of the map building, that was done firstly by Podcrash, then my servers staff. But all the landscaping was done by hand (with tools like mcedit though of course) so there are not really any biomes, every river, tree building etc was put there on purpose.
  15. haha that is my post, yeah it got quite a bit of attention :)
  16. Was referring to dangerous PvP and PK'ing. It was very easy to quickly detect which opponents actually knew how to fight and which ones didn't based on their decision-making whilst in combat. Bad PK'ers... -depended on rushing, tagging, and PJing for kills -got killed by rushers, taggers, and PJers -would choose to safe instead of spec if both fighters are low hp (doesn't apply for tanks) -wouldn't use terrain to their advantage (using trees and wilderness signs as safespots for kiting or healing without taking additional damage) -didn't hybrid/tribrid (different armor styles counts as hybridding) -didn't know phoenix necklaces, pizzas, tuna taters, and brews exist I'd also argue that PK'ing with less than 45 defense after 2006 is another sign that they don't know what they're doing but there were still a few low def pures kicking ass around that time. It's just that by then, the only people who 1 def pures could consistently kill were other 1 def pures or extremely unskilled people w/ defense. After armor got atrength bonuses and natural selection weeded out the people who would wander into the wild skulled with their bank and everyone hopped on the 1 def bandwagon, 1 def pures quickly became obsolete People with 1 defence pures often made the accounts solely to fight other 1 defence pures and would refuse to even fight anyone with defence, was just a different faster combat mode. Not sure how I can defend the levels of skill it to took to pk with an iron titan at level 35 though. And in general to people saying the old combat took no skill, high risk pk fights (like risking 50m++) were pretty skill based, I used to generally avoided them or expect to lose just because I staked rather than pk'd. Nothing at all similar exists in the game now. And this was just for edgeville fights, hybrid high risk was even more intense. [spoiler=found an old video of high risk fighting]
  17. It seems that more people chose the latter than the former, which is unfortunate for Jagex and the players who chose to keep playing. Unlike pretty much every other change to rs in history this is the case it seems, this sort of sarcastic comment kind of falls flat now. I hate to say never, but with the game so vastly different from the one I loved, I don't ever see myself playing runescape again, real life quickly fills in the time gaps and it really would take a perfect game to get me to consider the time commitment playing takes. A lot of ex-players I stay in contact with feel the same way, I don't think pvp or staking is ever going to recover properly for example. I wasn't being sarcastic >_> meant the one you quoted sorry

  19. Was semi-interested when I saw this, but read the details and still don't care. To get me to start playing again they would have to get rid of everything to do with eoc, it was a rushed cluster[bleep] that completely killed the game for loads of people, they are not even looking into things like bringing back 'pure' accounts/diversity of any kind and just screams desperate gesture. It is fine to like the game as it is now, it just not the same game, and I maintain that the best the game has ever been at was the day before the EOC update, maybe closely followed by the day before free trade returned, they were different but had their own appeals.
  20. From Reddit Also I have a shiny Charizard if anyone wanted to trade, looking for other shinys/competetive. Shiny Charizard: 31 satt/att ivs, relaxed nature, speed/satt ev trained.
  21. I used the SV thing to get a perfect shiny gabite and honedge Also got a shiny charmander but it has a -sa nature and 10 satt ivs :(.
  22. Quoting myself on an old post here and still feel that is why I quit and have no desire to come back, I don't mean to detract from peoples personal achievements but in my and a lot of other players views there is nothing difficult or engaging left in runescape, now a lot of people don't mind this and are happy grinding for 200mil slayer exp on 5 different accounts, however this is not a realistic popular drive for normal people. You can see from twitch streaming view counts how few people care about anything competitive in rs3 compared to 2007scape, which is a much smaller game. For so many people training, skilling and questing in runescape where means to an ends for creating perfect pking accounts, and that is just gone.
  23. Good luck! Sounds like that could be really fun especially with going for things like gwd.
  24. 3 warning points. One for an offensive signature (I think [bleep] was in small print in one of the screenshot montages), one for "spam" with no other details and one for posting the name of someone who was scamming dueling. Disappointed I didn't have anything more exciting there.
