i used to be happy to gain some ranks in the strength skill while gathering charms at waterfiends. it was just something to keep me interested i guess.

i play a lot of mobilising armies, i have like 1200 rank, placed 18th or so on the highscores. i make a small amount of money, i have some friends who play it, and i like to help newbies out with it. being on the front page made me happy.

minigames/ activities are a bit different though i guess, since there aren't exactly levels, or a point to begin with except some of the rewards.

I did for a brief period when I used to be on the first page for range. But not so much anymore, as I don't care where I'm ranked.

I watch ranks if I enjoy the skill, lately I've been aiming for levels but I'm sure once I finish up my current goals ill go back to ranks in fishing, ect.

Not at all, I play rarely for friends now and if I'm online I don't usually do anything for xp, I just stand around the G.E :grin:

I'd really like to be in the top 100k overall again. Before I started college, I played year round and had a rank somewhere around 60,000. I've had trouble keeping up with new skills and stuff the last 3 years and fell behind a lot. Either way, it's not really my goal in the game, just something that would make me feel more like I accomplished something with the game.

My account spent most of the last 10 months "locked"

Not really. Playing for ranks just adds stress/pressure I don't need. I play for levels and doing quests.

If you have ever attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an array, copy and paste this into your signature.

I do, but that's because during Slayer I've gained a ton of Attack exp putting me in the top 100 for it, along with top 200 for slayer. I care for ranks now only because I got this far.

I try to keep my slayer rank under 5000.

The funny thing is that this process already started around lvl 85.

And at one point I looked at the levels of my friend. And the thought came to me that I could easily surpass some of them in rank if I would just level some of the non-combat skills. And I did.

So I guess i care.

No.
I play RS for fun. Ranks and levels come as I play, my forum signature is the only source for my rank.

Every once in a while, I'll hover over my skills tab and see which skills are within...say 20k until the next level. I MIGHT decide to make the final spurt to level up, but mostly, I can't be bothered. I've had my slayer goal for ages now, still nowhere near it.

I guess goals and me are not the best combination....


Other data was removed when acoount got hacked...

I used to be rank 130 in prayer but that's been and gone. Only skill I care about in terms of rank is attack, as i'm going for 200m exp in it and plan on getting there as fast as I can (without going mental) so pacing myself atm but yeah wanna get a nice rank in attack one day, top 70 would be nice.

I do aim for a good rank in skills I enjoy, that's what the hiscores are there for, to get a high score...

It's just like a Flash game with a hiscore system, if you're good at it, why not try get high on the scoreboard?

I don't particularly care about ranks for individual skills. I'm satisfied with getting to 99.

I have found that overall rank has been somewhat motivating to keep training my non-99s.

I'll ocassionally get curious and look myself up on the highscores but that's about as far as my rank caring goes.

care for my ranks?
not even slightly!
i could be # 100 or # 100,000 and it would be the same to me!

i just dont care for beating other players in a list, as long as i end up wining the duel/get to mine that ore first ect, im happy.

Rank does have an affect on the way I play. Recently, I've made it my informal goal to work slowly up the overall ranks, just so I have a little pride in my account as better than others =P. My overall rank is 78kish, I want to slowly work my way to top 50k at least, and from there keep working to level my total and bring myself up. It's not a die-hard goal for me, just a way to keep me focused on using time somewhat productively.

I usually just play normally, but I enjoy looking at my rank every now and again.

The only rank I care about really is overall. I'd like to be top 25k one day, if that ever happens.Also maybe one day I'll rank range as its my fav combat style, still.

Lol i mainly don't worry about my ranks but of course I get into races and competitions with friends like most people, then it is about sheer amount of exp. ^^
When in doubt...eat watermelon ^^
