Seriously sat back and smiled when I saw the old RS home page, and the world/detail select. Brings back some great memories, also like seeing the stat screen progression. Kinda hard to believe how much it's evolved, and still people moan about this and that. Things were much simpler back then.
Thanks for putting in the work to get all this together.
No problem. Thank you for posting.
phoenix odin with 200M RC? a little early to tell... even though it will probably come true.
True, I suppose I will remove him until he achieves 200M exp in RC.
Oh at least i don't have to brag and buff myself up to get myself up there
Really nice read, although i already knew 90-95% of that. To be honest, as this is a FACT sheet, the pkig and staking part seems a little too subjective, and as we can see form the posts about it, people claim some terrible welfare pkers to be worthy enough to be on the list(like death threat for example). Facts are facts, if they aren't a first ballot name like ghjjf for pking or cursed you/ha12d for staking, they should not be mentioned.
Thanks. Famous PKers can indeed be a matter of opinion, but stakers can be a little more solid by just looking at their banks.
Cool topic I'll have a look in my screenshots folder to see if I have any screenshots of the old website floating around. (Edit: sorry, got nothing)
Isn't that 'detail select' image from the first version of the homepage, by the way? The texture on the detail buttons seems to match to texture on the 'play game' button. Might be wrong, though.
Nope, it's from version 2. The first version had something different if I remember correctly.
RS2 Beta was not only for members only!
Hmm, interesting find. Seems like the last 12 days of the beta were free-for-all. Thanks, I'm gonna add it
You didn't post anything about the phat dupe.
I think TKS was also first to lots of "landmarks". (locked when he quit and possibly got hacked.)
And I wicked I was a pretty famous pker back in the day.
Wasn't Lilyuffie88 first till some skills, In Runescape2, or I think (not sure) first to 126 combat?
Phat dupe was RSC, TKS was female .
Yes Lillyuffie was first to 126 Combat and not forgetting 99 prayer.
It's not a great fact sheet just a pick and mix sort of one, its ok for people who havent played that long but theres lots missing, plus I wouldnt concider any of the dungeoneering players legendary.
Most of the great merchants and stakers sold RS Gold simply because they had too much.
Hi, thank you for posting. This is for RS2 only, not for RSC or Runescape as a whole. If you want to look at what happened prior to Dec 1, 2003 (AKA when RS2 "began"), then please view the RSC Fact Sheet
. It contains a lot more historical finds.
Credit to eero of course.
Wow, thank you
i remember there being a threah here in general discussions of pictures of pre-graphic updates-Varrock lumby and Falador
Once again, tehre is a reason why this is called the "Runescape 2" Fact Sheet. Everything in here is for RS2 only, not for RSC or Runescape as a whole.
I'm going to start updating the topic
. A lot is going to be added and/or changed
