Lol, I played WoW for like 30 minutes, got to Level 3, and then got bored and quit. And all I hear is complaints in WoW. How Rogues are so cheap. How Warlocks need to get nerfed. I'm not going to play a game that gets so much complaints.

But rogue's ARE cheap :lol: .



You played for 30 minutes and you quit because of other people telling you that some classes are annoying to fight against?



Btw I think you weren't there during the dec 10 updates. I've never seen so much complaints at any given time in my whole life.



Final words, Warlocks rule the world. \<img src=/' />

There is no lag at WoW.

Speaking of extremely easy game, runescape is evene easier.

Gameplay of WoW is much better then Runescape, runescape is much more repetitive.






Most people who play RuneScape can't afford the godly computers required to run lag-less in WoW.



WoW is killing monsters over and over again for a week until you hit level 70. You're right that's way harder and nowhere near as repetitive as the 20+ skills, great story lines, and tons of quests and mini-games RuneScape has. Yes, WoW has much better gameplay...




You're a complete moron, and you're obviously confusing lag with framerate, wow isn't demanding in the least, the most demanding component is the RAM which is dirt cheap anyway.



I didn't find the grind to 70 that bad, I enjoyed most of my time levelling espicially in outland. The only reason the trip to 70 is so short is so people can concentrate on dungeons and have a progression through those instead of levels.



As for Runescape having a better storyline than the WoW lore that's just ridiculous, I'd be intrested in how much of the WoW lore you know of.



RS and WoW are completely and utterly different games with different strengths. Runescape has it's skill, WoW has it's PvP and PvE combat (say what you want about the PvP but it's damn popular) personally, I much prefer WoW but I still play Runescape and I'm paying for membership, if you want to slag off WoW and want to be taken seriously kindly link me to your armoury profile.

I tried WoW for a few months, Got boring. Don't like the whole team aspect of it. I like to be alone and achieve things alone.



+ you think our RSB are bad??? theirs is just as bad, posting child porn and regular porn everywhere, spam threads and the worst part is most of them are 18+ and know how to spell. At least our spammers have the excuse of being immature kids.



Trust me I dislike RS mods, jagex and the game itself for the most part. I keep playing because it's cheap and kinda entertaining.

I got 10-day trial, got to lvl 20 in a day, bought a month of it, well its gathering dust somewhere

atm, I just done want to go fight monsters by my lvl, and run errand by people with their problems, and its almost impossible to get a good weapons in the beginning of the game unless your very lucky with a weapon drop, and also I want many skills to train not just forced to go with two.

And Graphics wise, if I were to play for it, go Guild Wars.

WoW is a fun and thrilling. But like RuneScape, it has its bumps. I stopped playing RS about 8 months ago to play Warcraft. I enjoyed it and the style of it. Depending on your class and play style, it takes a few months to hit the max lvl, 70. I picked a Priest. They are always wanted because they can heal. Now, this is the point at where RS and Warcraft differs greatly - Groups. In Warcraft you usually have a healer in your group to heal the party, which consists of 5 players. Endgame content has dungeons that consist of 10 and 25 player groups. This was my favorite part of WoW, the PVE. Oddly enough, my favorite part of RS is the PVP. Dueling, Fight Pits, and on occasion CW. In my opinion, a player can easily go back to RS. After these graphical updates and a few others that I think I enjoy, I will be mailing in my subscription soon. I only wish RS will impliment the idea of groups, but now that I think of it... a Java written game... would be difficult. Warcraft and RS also differ through the way you acheive maximum lvl. Warcraft is almost 100% quests and RS is alot of monster camping. I really don't enjoy to camp monsters but if I meet up with a few people and they join me, it's always a bit more fun. Also a reason I left RS is that acheiving lvls is almost like a chore. I wish I could explain it better but thats how I feel. Runescape was not my first MMO, Furcadia was. Its basically a MMORPG that has no combat and 1-2d graphics. Runescape was a few steps up. Then WoW was a few steps up. Now it seems im jumping to the set of stairs beside me. You know, the stairs that look the same but just isn't up to par. Its rejected and ridiculed. Just the way I feel.

Mages can teleport and ride mounts. Even if you aren't a mage, you can pay one a small fee to teleport you to major cities. And most people have at least a few mage friends, their DPS is outstanding in PVE. \<img src=/' />

WoW isn't 100% team-driven. You can solo a large amount of the game and still acheive optimal armor. Now for the anti-social, it may not be exactly their cup of tea but its still doable.



And onto your comment about Warcraft forums - yes, they do have spammers but they rarely do post. Most of the time it is quickly deleted. Im not going to post percentages that would be pulled from the air but Warcraft forums have a significant amount of less spam than RS forums.



And may I be immune to flamming? :lol: Im on the RS side of things, Im just posting my opinion and to a point my opinion is almost fact.

If i could afford a new PC, i would definitely be playing World of warcraft instead of runescape, WoW is more of my type of game plus you will never walk past a conversation like:



pikachu_girl: weeeeee, i like bratz

Somedude: will you be my gf?

pikachu_girl: no sorry, i have a bf

Somedude: plz?

pikachu_girl: no, sorry.

Somedude: Fine, Pikachu is **** anyway, squirtle could beat him anyday

pikachu_girl: Reported...

Somedude: L



......Jesus, all i need is $1000 :pray:

I prefer Runescape, but all my friend in school dont like it.

I think the difference is that WoW is more the "fighting style game" and the fact that my friends just want to kill stuff and Runescape is more like a role player game.

I've played it for a little bit before, and a lot of my friends play it.



I just didn't find it enjoyable, and graphics don't really factor into my choice of games.



One of the main reasons that I enjoy RS is that there is so much to do, even if you do manage to max every skill to get to the "end-game" point, there is an almost unlimited things you can do that are fun. The sense of competetion and community is also nice, and I would dislike playing a game where every serious player reaches the max level after a while.





One of my friends was watching me play Rs for a few mins the other day and he saw someone ask a question and recieve an answer from another player and commented "wow, players in WOW would have just called him a noob and walked away". So evidently the situation with rude people there is similar, which doesn't surprise me at all.

WoW begins at 70 where you go off to raiding and realize how group orientated it is. Killing a boss for the first time with 40 of your friends (now only 25) is amazing. It's like obtaining a level goal in Runescape kind of feeling. WoW, however, comes with a time dedication that Runescape doesn't require. I can log on for 15 minutes in Runescape and get something done. In WoW, I need to play for 5 hours to get that same "i got something done" feeling.



WoW is not better than Runescape, and even on full graphics it doesn't provide the argument that it has real graphics (Im currently on a nvidia 9800). They are different games and shouldn't be compared by which is better. They both have their grinds, they both have their achievments, and they both have their fair share of ranters who will claim it to have been better before some update/patch.



I play both games and enjoy them. Runescape stats are in the sig and my WoW armory link is also in the sig.

I think that Runescape and Wow has their differences. But the only reason I'd stay Wow is if they came out with something that drew me into the game for ever. And even then I'd check Runescape for updates.



But another good game is Guild Wars. WOOT!!! \<img src=/' />

to be honest............I didnt read that many posts after the OP.

WoW is an acquired taste as is Runescape. Use a trial key to see what its like and if its your cup of tea. If you dont like it oh well then.



Ive played both since they first started wow and rs. Both have there perks and i keep going back to one or the other. Sometimes both at the same time.



So just give it a try is all I say.

iv played wow

816 hours to be exact(probably a little more) and iv gone back



WoW if fun for awhile, then after you do the same thing over 10 times it gets boring

the pvp is fun but its not worth the time, i think



runescape is definitely a more difficult game and is way more complex(skills and quest)



but that's just my opinion :<img src=:' />

These threads and topics will get on my nerves. When will people understand the effect that RuneScape is a great game enjoyed by millions (hence the 130m accounts made for goodness sake!). Its also incredible for a Java-based and brownser game (no real downloads unlike WoW that could take hours and hours to download).



Compare Wow to a game like Guild Wars or at least Conquer Online. Not RuneScape! Maybe WoW may not be as good as you think if you compare it to a game on the same level! Unlike those that

try to compare or rant to RuneScape, making WoW sound much better (which is not in my own opinion). But if you compare it something like Guild Wars, its not soo easy to cool WoW the best..isn't it?



If you love WoW soo much, go play it. Leave those who enjoy RuneScape to play RuneScape, instead of trying to hook them on a game that has the most addicted and obesed players of all games (my opinion :? ) Most Wow'ers just don't leave RuneScapers alone. Let Blizzard do the Mr. T adverts with their free trials advertisments. RuneScape has done a brilliant job gaining players with just the 'word of mouth' system.



Once you go WoW, leave RuneScape alone! (Which Wow'ers don't follow.. #-o ) Not trying to sound agrumentive, but its I hate these topics! And I am talking on the behalf of other forums/YouTube comments.



Of course, if you are just a normal player of WoW theres no problem of you playing it. But I found the players that keep bragging on about it and pesting those who like RuneScape get on top list in my Death-List (joke..), if you like the game, play it!

Runescape to me seems more of a casual gamers game, and WoW more a hardcore gamers game, which is why im a runescape fan.
