  1. I have a different perspective to a lot of people here, which I attribute to the fact that I've had an account since 2003 and I'm pretty much over Runescape as anything other than a game to have a look at once every couple of months. I'm in the category of those who found out "old" (normal) runescape was return Some of my fondest RS memories have involved the risk and rewards of death. As a noob in RS1 days, my first real equipment was some iron I looted when a guy died at the darkwizards. Being a noob was dangerous then, if something attacked you, you were stuck there for 3 rounds of combat and couldn't eat. Many a life were lost at the scorpion pits :cry: Then RS2 came and people would randomly die due to random events. If someone had a golem (an arse-kicking), a river troll(an arse-kicking) or a swarm (a slow arse-kicking) and didn't know about it, there were good pickings to be had. The game is unbelievably safe now. Nothing can happen to you. I've been a free player for almost all of my time in RS. As a free player, pretty much the only way you can die outside of the wild is by being very low levelled, being a bot or lagging out and getting unlucky (you'd probably still survive). I would bless (well repair, I'm a free player :P ) the corpse of a noob because people being kind to you is nice. A decent player who died - meaning they're going to drop a bit of rune or something like that - that's up for grabs, makes the game fun! I remember early RS2 a guy in full rune dying at the lessers and having his corpse rushed. I missed out on the stuff but my mate got a rune Scim (this was back when almost everyone was still using their R2Hs from rs1) so it was legitimately useful :P If someone's so invested in this game to the point where dying hurts their feelings, you are doing them a favour by looting their corpse. Valuing the items in any game (I'm not talking about the people behind the characters, but the actual material you can lose or gain) as being anywhere close to having real impacts on your feelings and emotions is an illness as far as I'm concerned. Take those items away, they may have a tantrum but you're giving them a shot and not taking a game so seriously. That's a good thing. Someone compared it to cyber-bullying, that's just inane. Attacking someone online is cyber-bulling. Beating them in a game is not. Beating them in a game then PMing them taunting them is borderline. Beating them in a game then PMing them with real insults and threats which actively make them feel upset or uneasy, that's when you're cyberbulling.
  2. Because it still has use, to light a fire. And cooking on better logs would give you less chance of burning food, although I don't know if this is still the case.
  3. Except when firemaking was introduced, you could only burn normal logs. It was introduced in a different time, when it was feasible to fish a load of fish, cut down a tree, burn the log, cook it and bank it. It was just an assist skill, with no reason to get it past level 30 or so. With RS2 Jagex thought they may as well do something with it so they just let you burn all logs.
  4. Although it would be nice to have smithing become profitable once more, this would last for like a week and then the price of smithed goods would fall drastically too, leaving everything just cheaper. If this was to be implemeneted, there would need to be a massive new use for ores to counter-ballance the inevitable influx of supply. But as it is, a firm no.

  6. This is a joke, right? A bunch of people complaining about letters...
  7. The credit crunch refers to something different to the recession you are talking about. And I really doubt they introduced a security measure because of the recession. There is absolutely no link. They are looking into it because of the increase in phishing and other easily accessable account stealing techniques, which they have been cracking down on behind the scenes over the past year. EDIT: shifty, changing the title from credit crunch to recession :P nice to see that people read other's posts though

    Water rusts iron. And It's scientifically proven to rust faster when there's a baby in the water.
