Hasn't been a solo possible game since godwars part I.
i have observed the opposite - until dungeoneering and nex, everything in runescape was a solo effort, and using the GE made being a runescape hermit completely possible.
Today, it's all about events, PvP killing, Teaming bosses, mini-games where you need a team to be in (not everyone like to team!) and so on.
Some of us just linger because we can kind of see a small glimpse of the old game and don't care about runescape gp.
RS as a community is slowly morphing into WOW which is nothing but a bunch of ass-hats. WoW = good game, bad players.
How can you say that and have a Tip.It account which was made well before the trade restrictions? You seriously can't remember how bad it was back then, or didn't you play RS? The community hasn't morphed in the slightest, it's just as filled with scammers and 'ass-hats' as before. Stop looking at the past with rose-tinted glasses.
