Almost a year ago by now since i left RS behind, checking up on friends once and awhile, currently loving WoW way more than RS was, but i want to know from all you tip.it'ers, what keeps you playing? i look back at inflation, how PKing was basically who got lucky/ate at the right times, a bunch of worthless quest updates, stuff like that, and i see games like WoW and it just makes me wonder. Don't get me wrong, i loved RS once you got high and you grinded for hours on end on the same thing (bandits with guthans, chopping yews, high alching constantly) it gets...dull, and all i started to like doing was Dag king trips, PKing, and merchanting, and with all the inflation, and alot of scammers and the community of alot on RS, i just gave up.



Some updates make me want to come back, but i know i'd probably just grow dull, so i want to know what keeps you all still hooked, and how many have played since the good ol' RSC?

I'm 106 and I'd do it if it wasn't for what Reb posted...


If Reb jumped off a cliff, would you follow him?

:lol: Who wouldn't? :wink:

Nothing keeps me playing. I quit because there was too much change in the game, and I grew out of it. Currently playing no other games.

To pass time. I've played other MMOs with better graphics and a nicer communities, but I quickly got bored of them, as their quests are pathetic. As I'm f2p and did all the f2p quests, there's nothing to do, but the quests caused me to become attached to Runescape more than the other games I have played.



However, if my parents let me play some p2p MMOs, I would quit RS in a heartbeat.

Ah, this reminds me about the noob on the Runescape forums who was upset with the quest "Cold War" because apparently his grandparents died in the war. :wall:

So, you're wasting your time on a message board about Runescape just to tell us in every other post you make how RuneScape sucks.



If you're really looking out for us and spending your free time steering us away from this game, then I thank you. However, I get the feeling you're just trying to be cool because you don't play anymore. :roll:

Yes, i think im cool on a runescape forum because i dont play anymore.=D>

Also im not really wasting time considering im done with homework and dont have anything better to do, i said no offense meaning im not saying you dont have to like it just because i dont.



This game just has too many flaws and will be highly popular for a few more years and then it will go down the drain, you can quote me on that too.

The ability to go play CS:S when I'm bored with this. Switching of between an FPS and an MMORPG works really well for me.

Because it's free and rather easy to play. There is no way I'm paying for an MMO, that would literally make me bonded to the game, and I can't quit if I was paying for it.

Other than that, I really don't play too much. But it is my first MMO ever, I refuse to abandon or give away my account, regardless of whether I play for 10 minutes a year in the future or not.
Life is a joke. Yeah, I don't get it either.

I normally revolve around 3 main games to pass the time, depends if i'm feeling like grinding or playing minigames. If I am, I play runescape, if not, I play GunZ or Empire Earth 2.
No witty signatures for me :(

I still play because I still enjoy it, and that is why you play games... :roll:



I don't foresee rs "going down the drain". If you mean its popularity will crash, all the better for the people who continue playing, as the community will be rid of all of the junk that people have been complaining about. But I can't think of any reasons why its popularity would crash.

I stay for the friends and for the fun.

I am in a community where friendships are strong and everyone treats you with equality. I am somewhat "bonded" to the friends I have and even when I took a 5 month break, I still visited their forums, walked in on their irc, and imed them with msn.

The fun part about runescape is that there is always something new to try. I just became a member today and it has opened up a world of possiblities.
