Good attempt, but Runescape was released in january 2001.

 

Yes, Jagex has been around for longer than that, but the game runescape hasn't.

 

 

 

I've been playing since october 2001, wish I were on that list :(

2 things

 

Where did you get that list?

 

And how did the first players find out about the game? Were they friends of the Gowers or was it advertised somewhere? Or did word of mouth really go that fast?

 

 

 

Wow, my old topic lol. I was 10 years old at the time and my dad told me about the game (It was beta testing at the time). I've met Andrew and Paul ingame during that time and I met the character "Moderator" when there was just 1 world and the mod "Moderator" walked around enforcing the rules lol.

 

 

 

Yes it was word of mouth that spread the game so quickly. Not many advertisements back than.

Wow. It has been literally FOREVER since I've played Runescape, or even signed in to the forums here. I randomly decided to come on the forums just to see how much things have changed and I happened to see this very old topic get bumped. Nobody has set the record straight (from what I can tell) so allow me to clarify this entire situation:

 

First: this list is not 100% accurate. To be on the list, you had to have SIGNED IN at some point when the list was still relevant for your name to be up there. So in all honesty, there could be hundreds of accounts that were technically within "the first 2,000 accounts ever made" that don't appear on the list because they never signed back in to those account(s). Make sense?

 

Second: the list comes from Runescape itself. Way back in the day, sometime in 2001, the High Scores on the Runescape website included the 'Herblaw' skill. However, the skill had not yet been added to the game. So on the 'Herblaw High Scores' section it automatically ranked players NOT based on their level/experience (as all of the other High Scores tables were listed) but rather by an account's creation date. So from #1 to #2000 it listed the accounts in order from their creation date (earliest to latest). But as I mentioned above, you had to have signed on to said account for it to be counted in the High Scores list... which is why the list is not 100% accurate.

 

And there you have it. I used to have an actual picture of the Herblaw High Scores table that showed everyone on this list but that was 2 or 3 computers ago and they're sadly long gone, along with a mountain of other pictures from back in the day. Anyway... hope this helped clear any questions up for anyone!
