I enjoyed both articles, then one about the Runefest was an interesting read, and i would like to be there myself for sure, maybe when i grow up? : )

Regarding the second article, i remember early RuneScape days, i started playing when i was 9 years old, since then i have quited and continued regularly. During my first levels i remember i was playing runescape with all my classmates, we were about 30 people? so 30 noobs mining in falador mine, the "boss" mining mithril, guards killing scorpions with mithril armour the "boss" made, and the rest of us mining in exchange for armour and food, etc. It was really enjoyable, but after some years, a new guy playing maplestory joined the class, and it became the new game. But hell it was boring after the 30 first lvl, and very tedious grinding. Then I and my best mates started playing RS again. We played for a while, i did treasure trails and got some item worth 200k, then i got scammed very hard. And quit RS until 2 years ago, when i have played one month and one month off, etc. Since then its been just hardcore leveling and questing. I guess that's what the game has evolved into, nowadays its much more of a competition than an entertainment...

If it weren't for 6000 miles separating me and Europe, I would have been there in a second. It's a lot more fun being nerdy when you're surrounded by a thousand other geeks.Posted Image

The second article was alright, but I feel like I've read 50 million articles that say the exact same thing before.

The Runefest one was an interesting read. The first line was a bit cheesy and almost turned me off, the "oh I know this article is fail dudes" part at the end was unnecessary, but the content was good. I've never been to Runefest and doubt I ever will, so I was interested in reading this sort of report.


As for my own article I'd just like to add this. One wise man once said "the journey is more important than the destination". A very true saying I like to remind in these cases.

Herp derp, as if anyone's going to reveal that now after keeping it a well hidden secret for years.

Anyway, I'm one of those who would've gone if it wasn't for the flight to London. 75 pounds ain't all that much to worry about anyway!

Nice to know what to expect in other RuneFests though, will try to get there next time!

Good first article (probably best for the first Times after RuneFest to have a recap like that), old recycled topic for second article, decent DYK

How is it a recycled topic, when nobody ever considered the idea? Look around you. How many people on RS have a "journey > destination" mentality? If you say this has been brought up many times before, then show me the "many times". I wanna see how many people out there, in the past few years, have considered the same idea. Especially on fan sites, where playing for the sake of fun is highly discouraged/completely ignored/not even thought of in the first place.

Really enjoyed the article about Runefest. At first when I heard of Runefest I thought it would be stupid but after hearing so much about it I'm sad I missed out. Sadly even if I wanted to go I probably couldn't have since I'm so far away.

Slayer; it's just what I do.
Thanks Hugger 88 for the awesome siggy!

If possible, I think I'd love to vacation to London for Runefest next summer, or whenever it is next....

Not getting my hopes up however >.>

Yeah, RS is too much about skills and levels and such these days....kinda sad....

Squab unleashes Megiddo! Completed all quests and hard diaries. 75+ Skiller. (At one point.) 2000+ total. 99 Magic.

The second article needs two words to explain. Skill Capes. They ruined the mentality of Runescape. They started the trend of grinding levels instead of levelling for fun.

Great summarisation of Runefest! And truly if you weren’t there, as stated in this article, then words, pictures and movies couldn’t get you even close to the whole ambience of the day; the Mods, the venue, the people attending, all a pleasure to be a part of. (but you did a pretty good job!)

Well deserved rant in the middle there too, I've heard many players and friends slate the whole fact that it went from “How Much??” to “FREE!!” in a matter of days … but we all know the common scenario of planning something, people saying they’ll come and then you’re sat on your lil jack jones with a pile of food the size of a mountain! So yea, I agree with the whole ticket and expense thing! It had to be done to sort the wheat from the chaff

Second article, I’m not sure I agree with your theory that most players are in it for the (lvls) glory. There are still many players who are there for the journey and I’m happy to be one of those players (3 capes in 3 years is pretty poor in consideration) These players are mostly under the radar, they chat, play around and yes, skill. You can still often find a few friends hanging out in random places, although I do find it annoying that you cant walk with friends thru any part of RS without some random player running up to you and shouting some form of childish comment. These players and even clans, do still exist, the ones created for fun, its just that these players don’t shout as loud, run around the place, and take over chat rooms with glorifications of exploits.

A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow. – William Shakespeare

Couldn't agree with the achievement vs fun article more. In fact I have a very similar thread on the RSOF concerning the overemphasis on grinding to 99s. Always nice to see someone who shares my views.

Sure, I'd be glad to.

Those are another five articles on the same topic written for the Times in the past half year. I don't need to go into "the past few years" or even to other fansites.

I don't doubt that you wrote the article using your own opinions and observations. I am merely pointing out that we have this same topic explored once a month, with little new material and few new opinions being presented each time.

Re: When Achievement Is Worth More Than Fun


Quite simply...the change happened with the introduction of Capes of Accomplishment =\

Heck, even Jagex has continued to buy into the 'blind grind' mentality by introducing Dungeoneering :shame:

After all, what skill can you think of where you are basically pushed into rushing through as quickly as possible to maximize your xp...and if you DARE solo and take time to harvest all the resources you are PENALIZED for it :blink:


As long as people are only concerned with "I've got more capes than you, nub"....there really isn't much any of us can do :wall:

Personally...I usually find the journey is much more interesting than the destination :rolleyes:
