Older Players

Recommended Posts

:roll: OK, I admit it, I'm 50+ years old & a female to boot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Am I the only old gal - or guy - playing this game?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is there any possibility of creating a few age specific servers?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've played 2 years now and haven't met anyone my age.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Am I just an old sickie?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'd like to know if there are any older players out there.

Well at least half to two-thirds of the Runescapers are probably teenagers or younger :|

Most players are 11-16 years. But I've met someone who are 25++.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a friend of me know who is around 45++

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So you aren't alone.

Like said above. Most RuneScapers are 11-16 years old. Personally I'm 20, 21 in Feb., and I know a lot of older players (30-40+ Years old). A lot of the considered "famous" players are not kids, but older players. ;)

Thanks folks!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know most players are younger than my grandaughter. I do interact with some younger players, but mostly, I'm a lone wolf because there's not enough common ground - generations apart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, your replys are supportive and make me feel less like an oddity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After all, it's just a game. :lol:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Merry, merry, jingle, jingle,

ya Most ppl are younger but I think that probably 2/3's of good players are older. Younger ppl dont have the patience i think.

Ive heard that Daverick (ranked 13th in the highscores) is a grandfather.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think he's 60 years old?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IDK, I just read it off a post here in tip.it a long time ago... :?

True, most are younger in this game. I am only turning 18 in Feb. and I still think that most people are imature and inconsiderate *shrugs*. I used to have a great friend who was in her latter 40s.. *laughs* I used to call her mom! Unfortunately, I haven't heard from her in quite some time now.

Ah, you're wrong there, the average age of runescapers is 35.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Go pointless facts!)


1690 total and unranked strength. Headed for 1800.

I like the irony (no wait, paradoxicality) in how there's a spelling error in this sig.

I wonder why Daverick came into my head... :roll:

I too am 17 and feel the same way. Way too many people annoy me in this game.

 

 

 

And yes, separating worlds into age groups is a very very good idea.

What age groups (if any) do you think would work?

The age seperation is the stupidest idea i've heard in quite a while. It's even worse than the automatic kitten patter...

 

 

 

This game is for all ages and why discriminate people just because of their age?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Besides, there IS a lot of older players out there. I knew a high level, Biffa (or something along those lines anyway) that was around 45 and female, and lived quite near me so don't see what the issue about age is.

Wow, incredibe. Idiots have even leaked out onto the forums.

 

 

 

Sry, er.. mate, I don't know how many hours a day you play but I seriously doubt you total almost 3 million xp in 10 minutes. What you guys have seen is a classic example of discrimination based on combat level. Bravo, way to set an example.

 

 

 

Although I must apologize, I didn't take into consideration the fact I would actually get a response like that. Always overestimating the crowd. But hey, I'm working on it. :wink:

 

 

 

What I suggest is splitting up half of the worlds into three age groups. While leaving the other half as it is. Players won't be forced to go to either worlds, and Jagex will not keep a strict watch on who enters what world. If presented with a choice of weather to go into a "15 and under" world or a "20 and over", which world do you think would an older player go into? Now, s/he can go into either one, its up to them, but chances are they will go into the second one. It will be just more convenient for some players to be able to choose the more mature worlds to play in.

 

 

 

And, of course, there will always be a few little kids running around in the older worlds and making idiotic "your momma jokes", but hey, I'm willing to take those chances.

Immaturity has nothing to do with age. There are many mature young people and many immature older people and i can't see any other reason to have this divition between gamers besides the notion some people entertain that younger people are immature.

 

 

 

Anyone who thinks that needs some serious growing up.
