Why is F2P so quiet now?

Recommended Posts

Before my break from runescape, (i left just after hunting came out), F2P used to be full of people talking and asking for stuff but now its empty and quiet.

 

 

 

What happened??

Jagex converted them all to members. XD

 

 

 

No but seriously... the classic 'begging' and 'scamming' is long gone now. Most beggars you see now the annoying people who say "cape mote plz!?" And scamming is basically eliminated with f2p only being able to trade 3k at a time.

I think it depends what time you are on. Yesterday i went into F2P on a new account i'd created and it was still the same old runescape :D a billion people were all trying to talk at once.

 

 

 

But maybe as Shahrazad (Love you're name! :lol: ) they've all just gone on holidays :D

what world do you log on to????!!!

 

 

 

i dont notice a difference at all. They are still the same...begging...hanging around one place for gf/bf...annoying others...

 

I dont mean to generalize at all; just referring to the small percent of these immature children.

some of the f2pers are probably under 13, which means their accounts are quick chat only, which means less talking.

OT: Can someone please explain to me who the "bots" are in the "Who is online" at the bottom? I always see them but I don't know what they're doing here... :?

My experience in f2p as of late is limited. I've only been there once in several months, but that one time I went (the day item lending came out), I took my rares out and the only people to say anything to me were a bunch of people saying "nice mask/santa" and this one kid who wanted me to run him all over varrock to do "The Shield of Arrav."

 

 

 

Then I went back to p2p and got spammed with "can I barrow joor rare?" :XD:

 

 

 

IDK, maybe I was just on the wrong world or something. :-k

F2pers arent poor -.- . Most choose not to buy p2p as they want to get past the skills you can easily train in f2p, eg woodcut/firemaking. Then they get p2p. Also, some arent allowed to buy p2p, and many others dont want to buy p2p, as they've progressed s much in f2p, that it'd be a shame getting p2p and ruining their 100% f2p status.

There is nothing special about being 100% f2p why dont people get this!

 

 

 

Everyone in f2p has moved to the ge, clan wars or bh, It's still pretty noisy for me though.

I kinda noticed alot when I came back. I took a break for about a year to start school and when I got back there where like a bundle of new skillz and stuff.

 

 

 

And ofcorse I was a lil surprised by the fact that before i left most of the worlds had over 1000 players and now alot have under 700.

 

 

 

Kinda shocked me. ><

Yea true, my parents didnt allow me to buy members, but then i got my own job and "ruined" my 5+ year 100% f2p account, and I'm having more fun than ever (maybe only a little less than f2p PKing, but that's past)!

It all goes back to RWT. PKers, pures, macroers, goldfarmers, merchanters, scammers, and some beggars quit. Don't say "this is only a few categories of players", because they made up a good part of the F2P community.

If they can't afford members I doubt they can afford a holiday. :lol:

I've been hanging around in Lumb, shooting people who are annoying me. That's why it's so quiet.
