Na it's been going on for 6 months now, and it just randomly happened one day and i've made 99% sure it's not my computer and by defragging the computer (starting fresh) it SHOULD get rid of it, if it doesn't, it's a clear sign that it's not me :P

Myself.



If I finally determined that I was too busy, or that this game took too much away from me, then I would quit myself. No update of Jagex can change that determination.

...Alright, the Elf City update lured me back to RS over a year ago.

A defrag just cleans up the HD and aranges all the data into contigous chuncks. It has nothing to do with you losing your network connection. Try taking your computer somewhere else, try their connection, if it works its your ISP or the hardware they proivided. If you keep losing the connection its something on your computer.

Boredom, lack of motivation, and a better game that captures my interest.. and it already happened :P



For the most part, RuneScape is pretty much unchanging. Sure they add/change tidbits here and there, but it's still the same grind towards the same goal. Getting from level 1 to level 99 doesn't change, and how you get there doesn't really change either. After a while it's just kind of... meh.

Getting to that point too. Just not enough decent people to keep me going.

Meh, it was happening during 2007...I played less and less and the Dec 10 updates didn't help much. I recently got members for a month but that still didn't made me get into the game again. I still log on from time to time and I probably won't ever log back on if TIF ceased to exist. Without Tip.It I wouldn't of liked this game so much, the folks here are wonderful. :mrgreen:

If they made it quickchat only then BAM thats when I quit. Nothing short of the complete removal of talking with other people (talking about real life stuff not just runescape) would make me quit

Basically losing interest in the game would get me to quit.

Man, I don't know. Ive lost interest in RS many times, and i've taken 2 year long hiatuses. Yet I still find myself resubscribing and getting back into it. I lost my main account who I had for 5 years, but I made a new account and my skill total is better than my old account's skill total. I would say if all my friends quit, I would probably quit (and I only have a couple good friends who still play... but we've been playing for years now).

This is certainly a good topic, and has made me stop and think. I would say that it would be the removal of player interaction, only talking via. quick chat and JAGeX depleting/ruining any of the skills I like. Oh, this is a few years away but going to University would probably impact it greatly.

My relaxation method involves a bottle of lotion, beautiful women, and partial nudity. Yes I get massages.

I totally agree with you, I've been experiencing that for the past few months but I still log on to Runescape 1-2 times a week just to play it... strangely. And for the past year or two, the only online game that I've been playing was Runescape... and it still is :thumbsup:

Getting permanently banned for do it for me, there is no way I'd be able to recover the stats of my character as they are now.

I realy don't know if anything in runescape exept hacked and down to 0 gp would make me quit. If i would quit, then it would either be that or real life reasons.

Proud owner of the following skillcapes: Defence, Hitpoints, Strength, Attack, Magic, Summoning, Ranged, Slayer, Prayer and Herblore.
I drift in and out, trying some update that interests me.

I only ever use this account, so having this account perma-mutede or banned would make me quit RS. I don't really know what I'd do if I got hacked, I'd have to decide if it happened though. :ohnoes:

Disconnecting 20+ times a day which is happening at the moment (no it's not my computer #-o ) as a last resort i'm getting my bro to defrag the computer when he has time, if that doesn't work then i'm quitting :cry:




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


I'll doubt defragmenting even does anything to help RS, since RS doesn't involve your harddisk at all.



OT: When a better game interests me more than RS, in terms of game mechanics complexity, all those stuff, hehe.
Strangely with WotLK so near, I wished I could delay it a bit to push through that last TBC content in MH/BT :'(.

This. Even being permanently muted wouldn't make me stop, I'd just talk over IRC.



Or losing interest in the game, but I don't see that happening any time soon. I still have too much goals to complete :<img src=:' />

I am very careful not to break the rules, but should my account be banned I'll just hop to my secondary account and continue building it up. :thumbsup:

My friends and clanmates are the sole reason I still play RuneScape. I am about to go to university, and this means that I will have to cut down on my gaming time dramatically. But as long as I have friends who still play, I'l always manage to make time to log in once or twice on the weekends for a chat. :D

Pretty much what Dragon said.
Thread terminated.

I guess that means I'm the thread Terminator?
