tbh, I haven't decided yet. With less than a million xp to go until 99 Mining I'll definitely be playing long enough to finish, but after that? Who knows.

How is highscores lite still going to be available?


W13 of Zybez reported this:

Just got email from Jagex saying that lite-hiscores will NOT show F2P players.

Well there goes the last and only hope of seeing f2p highscores again after this update.

Withevery single phat over the cash limit? Keep dreaming... All this thanks to the billions and billions farmed by bots and injected by jagex.

I really can't believe that jagex is doing this to their own game - how many more new players should jagex turn away?

Instead of revitalizing f2p now that the bots are gone, they're smothering it.

I think a massive organised protest should be formed and i mean a big one! Maybe that will sway jagex especially if members join in.

I don't see myself playing much anymore if the hiscores get removed.

Its almost as though Jagex is TRYING to kill off f2p.

Would they do that? Would they really destroy what basicly is half of the entire fan-base for money?

I would say it's probably because they're trying to move away from Runescape and on to a new project.

Half of the fan base ?

At this very moment of the players online only 18% are using f2p worlds.

F2P is already dead and Runescape is now on life support.
Sad.

I am a member and i would definitely support you guys if you decided you will protest, even though protesting won't help. Jagex is determined to kill this game for good.

You should have seen the pictures LordA posted in Top 250 F2p list thread, that pretty much sums it up, but its gone for some reason....within one day...anyone happen to save it?

F2P was alive and kicking around 2005 to early 2006 or 07. If Jagex has implemented this bot nuke earlier, all those wildy and free trade removal wouldn't happen in the first place, among other big unpleasantness.
a happy Runescaper

It has been discussed by some F2P players. We cannot let Jagex destroy the hiscores :(

I don't believe a protest would help. I'm sure they thought about it quite a bit before their decision and has one ever helped before? Maybe but not that I'm aware of so fill me in if it has please. Anyways we'll find out in a few days if Jagex does go ahead with it or not. I wouldn't take part but enjoy yourselves to those who do.

These never change anything.

Let's just all quit.

After all, having less active players online would only hurt Jagex in the long run.

What if everyone just let their membership lapse for a month, but continued to play on the f2p servers. That way they'd have to pay the bill for us not giving them money. :)
Was Deathknell, but the password recovery never worked for me. So I'm this now. Whatever. Someone get me some damn fried chicken!
