What would it take for you to quit Runescape permanently?




I have been pondering this question for a while. You hear of some who get banned (fair or not) and yet make a new account and get right back to the game. Some lose joy and yet comeback with new updates. Sometimes responsibilities take over and this forces one to stop, yet when they have time, they still Log on. Could it possibly another game? There are many circumstances that lead one to ponder.



I am sure many have thought or tried at one time to stop playing. What keeps one going? For myself,it is friends and the Tif community. Friends seem to be there when you need them holding you, challenging you, laughing with you! Possibly goals have kept you going or is it just sheer boredom, who knows?



I don't post this in a certain direction to the end of free trade or updates. Many will probably come across this question with the release of Mechscape. While those may be answers for you this is not the general idea of the question stated above.



So I ask, what would it take? Another question of interest that ties in is what keeps you going?

What keeps me going are my friends, this fansite, and my goals. If all of my friends quit, then I'd probably just make some more. I meet new people more frequently than I used to. This fansite has a dedicated community - and by saying that I meant how the staff worked together hard to get the forums back up. As for my goals, I'll always have them so I won't have to worry about that. :D

I answered this question in another thread with the same name.



Uhh... I can't remember. No wait I remember. If I were to lose an important job over this game, I'd definately quit.

I really don't know. I'm pretty dang sure that it won't be the release of the new game though. I have already gotten this much from this game, so why stop to go to another. The only reason with that would be if it's just that much better than RS.

i don't think anyting can make me quit permanently, i always take like a month break to play another game, new or old, but i seem to always come back to gold ol' runescape.



i keep playing 'cause this was my 2nd mmo i've ever played, the first being maplestory. i quit maple for runescape because rs has sooo much to do than just kill monsters and the quests have story line which just rocks =)



another thing is i have rl friends who play this game from tme to time so that's always a plus, and even the people i meet online are great company. in truth, online interaction is the ONLY thing keeping me on, if it weren't for this game being an mmo, i'd have quit a loooooong time ago lol

Something that I find enjoyable by a lot over RS, either that, or RS becomes single player.

Probably the only 3 things that would make me quit permanently are:



1. Me being hacked/banned



2. My IRL Death



3. Runescape's Death

I stopped actively playing over two years ago, but the determining factor that pretty much ended it for me was the removal of wilderness and end of free trade. I don't feel like I quit runescape. I feel like the runescape I played no longer exists. It definitely seems like rs has unofficially become rs3 over the past several months.

getting a gf at my age wouldn't make me quit. if i wanted to get better grades, i improvise and stay off the computer until my studies are done. if i was hacked, that just means i have to start new goals. nothing aside from my account being banned would make me quit. :)

I don't see how defragmenting is gonna solve your problem, unless you have some lag issues.
