I don't get the point in getting a private server. They are stupid, and just cheap replicas of the real RS. Can someone give me a really good reason?

Excuses are tools of incompetence that builds monuments of nothingness. Those who specialize in excuses never accomplish anything.

If the world does end on December 21, 2012, I want to be doing hot stuff with Megan Fox and/or playing Runescape :D

You've pretty much answered your own question... They're cheap and stupid, no reason to get one aside from getting 2billion gp in 5 seconds... There IS no reason to get one...

Runescape private servers are the failure of MMO private servers.



They're a big bucket of crispy fried failure.

Because people like to pk, but don't want to spend time getting the stats/gear they want.

Private servers let them do what they want, and spend less time doing what they don't want.

This.



The only kind private servers I would deem "acceptable" (in this case, not pointless) are RSC ones. They're a popular alternative for the people who got screwed over with the 6 month log in thing.



Then there are things such as old pking etc. like people have mentioned.

I apologize for thread-jacking, but what exactly is a private server? I heard about them a couple years ago, and I think they're illegal.

A server that's private. Ever hear of [Caution: Jagex Rule Violation]?

I know of a great private server. 1x all skills and no cheats/codes. Made by java gaming experts and even has a F2p and a P2p version. All the skills are fully there. Here is link: Link

Are private servers possible with Runescape? I thought because the game isn't downloaded that you can't make your own servers. They are a cheap waste of time anyways. Play the game properly or not at all.

Most private servers are exceptionally laggy, and it's quite difficult to find a reliable one that isn't laced with trojans.

Some of the stuff they do with them is funny... But otherwise what other people have been saying is correct, they're a cheap rip-off.



Unless... Do they actually have HD on private servers? I'm just naturally curious, since I don't know how they got the servers ripped-off in the first place.

Nope. AFAIK, none of them even have the skill capes.

They have SkillCapes and GodSwords now they just don't have the emotes and stuff (either way the real ones are better then the Private server ones)



they just rip from the official client and stick it in the crappy server they made :shame: plus they have barely advanced in graphics or anything, we're in HD and they're still in old graphics... (they don't have things like G.E, Chaos Tunnels, things like that)

you guys obviously havent looked in a while

after a quick google search i found many privite servers with screenshots of godswords skillcapes special attacks and many new areas.

there are nearly as many people working on the severes through forums than at jagex.
Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

The only reason I can think of for playing on private servers is that you can do high-leveled stuff without actually being high-leveled on the real RuneScape.

So you can see what it feels like being able to do all the activities without being held back by your combat level...
