Well, considering my total wealth is probably only around 25-30m, most of which is just a heeeeeap of junk i'm too lazy to sell, I guess i'd slowly recover :lol: Never been too fussed about having a huge amount of money/gear, most money I do make just goes right back into training other skills. :)

I'm realy not sure losing ~650M would be terrible and devistating and I'd probably take a break or just rc some back and go make money at GWD. But I'm not sure and will never know until it happens which will be never.

I would probably recover slowly followed by a short break during which i congratulate myself for getting my wealth back however if I had more say 50mil i would take a break to sulk for a couple days then recover slowly.

 

No lifing is not an option because i don't have a life

Well considering it has happened to me 3 times, the first 2 times I slowly worked back and accumulated far greater wealth than the previous time. But the 3rd and most recent has made me quit indefinately (Yeah I know I log in for a few minutes each day but I have some friends who dont use msn etc. and I still have 12 days of mems left :? )


Check my blog, I'm retired now anyway.

Every day I hear someone say. "Omg, I've been hacked!" Now if they are serious or not, I will never know. I am not sure how anyone can lose their stuff. Unless you are sharing your account or allowing someone to compromise your pw info, I'd think it would be pretty rare. And for God's sake, use a decent, updated virus protection program. I actually know of some folks that play RS, that don't even know if they have a virus protection program. Set a pin & recovery questions. And I am 99% sure you won't lose your money. I'll admit, I have been playing for just over 2 years, and I have seen a keylogger on the main page once. You just have to be smart about what you do. Me personally, I'd probably slowly make it back, but if it happened more then once, I'd probably just pack it up or take a long break.

When I returned last Christmas (2007) I had nothing. Someone had gained access to my account while I was retired/quit by convincing Jagex via password recovery they were me (I have now changed my recoveries to be much harder to guess/work out). This meant I started from scratch. I was able to recover by nolifing a little bit but not too bad. I basicly got my fishing and woodcutting to level 99. This got me enough money to get some other skills to 99 including fletching, firemaking and cooking last year also. I now have bandos armour, a santa hat, approx 40m in the bank and now working on 99 summoning, hitpoints and defence. Gonna be an exciting year :D

Depends how I lost it, if I spent it all on 1 skill like I just have I would start making it back like I am but if I got hacked for ALOT, they i'm not sure until it happens which I hope not. Then some may argue spending it all on 1 skill isn't losing it...

Currently over 110m+ I will probably take a break start fishing sharks (300k to 99 fishing :)) or chop mages (99 wc already) which will hopefully be enough for decent gear but yeah hard to say really..

I never had any trouble with money. I skill, and money just comes along on the way. Allthough it'd suck losing hundreds of millions... it'll be no problem to make it back.

If i lost all my money...

 

 

 

Probably i'd be sad at first and possibly angry. But in the matter of days i would get back on my feet and start making my money back. Probably with rune mining at first, as i like it a lot, then other activities :)

 

 

 

Slow but steady.

LOL- Well I guess it just sucked to be you. :) You are a rarity it appears. Most of the time I talk with folks that got hacked, and they would say, it was someone I knew, or knew my pw for whatever reason. I did say that I got a keylogger on the main page once, so even with all those things, it still can happen of course. But I assure you, the majority of hacks are from people they knew, or from not having a virus program, etc.

 

 

 

But ya, sorry to hear it happen to you like that, because stuff like that just irks me. :/

If I would lose one part of my wealth I can slowly recover it but if almost everything in my bank vanishs I would take a break. Why? Cause on of my goals for the current year is to accumulate a big cash pile and failing with my goals would disappoint me very much. I always set my goals to something possible and slowly setting higher and higher goals. It's like a game in a game and if I can't reach my goals I would lose the game - plain simple. :P
