Runescape has an awesome community

Recommended Posts

[please note that this is a thread about the runescape community, not the game itself]

 

 

 

O jeez! So I just got back from the WoW official forums.

 

 

 

They are all so immature on the WoW forums, and post so many stupid things about runescape that aren't true. We may complain about RS but WoW's community is [insert about 500 very offensive words].....

 

 

 

Here are some of the stupid threads I found about runescape:

 

 

 

1. http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/threa ... 00&sid=1#6

 

 

 

2. http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/threa ... 1&sid=1#17

 

 

 

3.

 

http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/threa ... 18&sid=1#0

 

 

 

(note that some are people standing up for runescape but most of the people commenting on the thread are being idiots)

 

 

 

Anyway, Runescape has a great history (as online games go)

 

 

 

Runescape takes much more skill to play

 

 

 

And we have a lot more intelligent people in our game <3:

 

 

 

So w00t Runescape. I've played many MMORPG's (Runescape, WoW, maple story) And Runescape has the finest community of them all, thanks to jagex! =D>

 

 

 

by the way my posting name is [Caution: Jagex Rule Violation]r (Nope I don't use m0parscape I just thought it was a funny name) (yep in the 2nd thread on the list I'm being a tif suck up) =PPP

 

 

 

P.S. (the WoW forums are just as stupid in every thread, they aren't being overly stupid just because they hate Runescape with a passion)

I mean I don't deny that wow has much better graphics and combat interface and such but Rs is not nearly as bad as they make it. I mean for a browser game its actually very good. Haven't played wow myself but from what I hear the game is pretty much all combat related, which is one of the main things I like about Rs you don't just have to kill things.

Your comparing the community as a whole because of the WoW site forums? If you look at RS official forums im sure you can deduce the same towards runescape.

 

 

 

and by posting this you are being no better than the guys in those threads :roll:

To be honest alot of them are people who have never played RS or only have done after WoW. Therefore its understandable they think its crap because the first they see are graphics and the sounds which are truthfully worse than WoW. I like the kid who was complaining that if you die in RS you lose your items lol. Basically those who dislike rs are those who haven't ever really played and those who got ****ed over by players in RS either by getting pked or scammed. Anyone who was good at RS generally understands that RS is a decent game but its very different and therefore hard to compare to WoW.

I suspected someone would use that as an argument.... I have been on many WoW forums.

 

 

 

The official runescape forums are better than WoW's, and runescape's official forums are pretty awful! :ohnoes:

What can you expect? World of Warcraft always bags on Runescape

 

 

 

 

 

and runescape cusses, scams, macros, imo were alot worse then their results.

theres nothing the official forums in runescape can compete, a player threatened to sue a a billion dollar company, thats how low they are. the WoW forums are runned by an older community, they know better. sorry for stereotyping but its absolutely true.

People cuss in WoW, people macro in it (though it's rare because it's hard to do), people don't scam in WoW (well hardly ever anyway).

 

 

 

The WoW community is just as bad, you wouldn't believe the vulgarity they use in that game (have you ever played?)

I got considerably old when whenever someone would made a valid, well constructed rant of a certain part of the game, all the responses end up looking like this:

 

 

 

"QQ moar nub lrn2play."

so what, suck it up. i get cursed by random people everyday at school, you think i care? macroing in runescape takes away your fun, cussing can be easily avoided and it causes you no problems (if you have a high self esteem) runescape cusses way more then WoW (if you dont stake, safe in the wild). just glance at the f2p lumby more often, see what im talking about. seriously.

Seriously, you have no idea what your talking about until you have played, RS is a much cleaner game when it comes to language used.

Any decent rant about a certain aspect of the game just gets completely flamed by other players with "QQ" (cry more) insults without any reasons as to why their against it.

Runescape takes a lot of know how to play well. Every aspect of Runescape (mostly) requires knowledge about a certain skill/item/what item to use on what

 

 

 

WoW is just ''level ups''... ''get a mount'' ... ''go on high level raids'' ... ''PvP (the best part)''

 

[that's really all of it, besides the side dish of ub3r l33t graphics]

 

 

 

Yes runescape takes skill.

i found an incredible amount of irony in those posts... 5 year olds?

 

i'd rather speak to a five year old than a person who cusses to look mature... -.-

 

i'd like to see warcraft have the same graphics in java

Looking at those threads I agree with you. But some parts of RS, like a crowded f2p world in lumbridge castle, are much worse.

I am sick and TIRED of people comparing runescape to other video games. Seriously, play the game, and if you find something better, play that. Stop bringing comparisons of the game to the forums which are used to discuss RUNESCAPE, not WOW. I understand you are making a point, but make that point without bringing other games into the discussion.

I agree some of Runescape, like crowded f2p worlds are worse, but they are such a small part of Runescape as a whole they cannot be a judge of what Runescape really is. ( I overused the word Runescape) :lol:

 

 

 

Anyway, this is how I see it:

 

 

 

Crowded f2p RS areas, and some non-crowded f2p areas- Sick Sick Sick

 

 

 

P2P- usually nice people, some especially nice

 

 

 

WoW (almost all parts of it)- annoying, vulgar speaking fools who don't respect anyone else

wanna train melee, get a sword and put it on accurate, wanna train range? get a bow. OMG! that was soooo hard and took so much int from ppl

 

 

 

~now on a side note, im not desparaging rs, even though it seems like it~

 

 

 

lets not mix skill and intelligence of the player

 

 

 

WoW takes skill because of the numerous builds but in rs u can be good at EVERYTHING! at 99 everything there is no dif at all, sides equip

And we have a lot more intelligent people in our game

 

 

 

Lol :lol:

 

 

 

I can't second this because I don't know the intelligence of people who play WoW, but Runescape does indeed increase your mental capability from reaction time to mathematical skills, puzzle solving, and every day skills like farming (if you ever wish to grow your own garden or to redo your lawn, you'll know what steps to take :wink: )

 

 

 

I don't really see why people even flame games. If you think it's fun, fine, then play the game. That's what games are for. If you don't think it's fun, then just walk away or go to something else. What's the point of playing a game if it's just going to cause you to rant and make you furious irl?
