Damn, Drumgun never gets any love =x You'd think he'd start getting a little of the recognition that Gert did, considering he's had the most 200ms three times in a row now.

Problem is, with his total, he has always flown under the radar. Which is exactly why he gets no recognition, apparently because he does not want it.

Lol it's funny how people respond to 3hitu and deny his contribution because of his cockyness. Regardless of his attitude, he is a big name, a big influence, and started a unique trend. Don't cry because he's not humble, he's done more than most people here.


I agree. He deserves a mention alongside I Mahatma I and the rest of them.

Also +1 to chessy018.

In my eyes..

Zezima - Overall greatest player ever, most famous too. Noone can catch his fame, this game will always be his.
Chessy018 - Richest (befor hack)
Kids ranqe - Mad pker
Defil3d - Youtube

I'd consider Canada Grrl for the list for running the w60 penguins lists on forums.

R.I.P. The olde nite. A legend is gone but not forgotten.

I wouldn't be surprised if most people have never heard of Defil3d. She was huge when I first started to get heavily involved in members RuneScape. Chessy018 was big during the merchant clan phase of the GE. She's not even discussed that often anymore.

Very nice list you've compiled. The Youtube guys are iffy, but you cannot deny the fact most of RuneScape have heard of them, making them an icon of sorts. I'd go with N0valyfe for #10. He was huge, but didn't continue his fame.

Ive read that quite a few times, but not in a while. Very interesting read I would recommend if you guys have not yet.

And n0valyfe is on my list, at #3 =P

I am considering chessy as a possible 10th. I do remember defil3d, but I don't think her fame by itself on youtube earns her a spot in the top 10. I am also considering villandra, for her numerous achievements on "noob" accounts as well as her relatively brief time atop the highscores.

I do believe we have an interview with Zezima as well. Perhaps even one with a friend of The Old Nite. Those would be a good read for anyone who hasn't read them, they're fantastic.

bluerose13x was only player that had dominated rs best weapon market completely alone since she was only player able to bring them in game...everyone that had player rs atleast week knew her name and most high levels/pkers wanted to get smithing service from her because she was only source of best def/attack equipments at time.
at that rate she was more famous than zezima was ever...zezima had actually not much need by players he has mostly name only that ppl knew.

Zezima because during my time you could always guarantee he was at the top of the highscores.

It doesn't just symbolize a player, but it symbolises a time period. I'm sure many of us could agree on that. The newer generation plays this game not realizing who they are or what they did. I suppose also in the time spent between that era and the current time is the amount of people who got those levels. Since those skills have been out for a long time, and more better money making techniques were released (along with better training methods), 99 skills became one of those things that are just a given. Everybody and their dog has a 99 skill nowadays, not like back in the Zezima era where those who had 99 skills were often looked up to. Now you look at the highscores and a large quantity of the skills are filled up with the first page of players having 200m XP.

That's what I think anyway. It's getting semi-off topic but the only player I can personally think of that influenced my time period the most was Zezima. I know a lot of you will disagree with me, but it's my personal time period. I'm not old school enough to remember Bluerose13x or anyone in that era. Yes, I guess I should mention other notables such as Fredmcgarry and such, but Zezima (at least in my opinion anyway) stood above the rest.

I always enjoyed Vinnydakid, 3 HIT U, and I Kasoy I as pkers when I was playing. Watched their videos and everything.

Zezima, and a few people from on this website influenced me the most.

Without doubt, Zezima has to have been the biggest name on Runescape of all time, topping the leaderboards for years at a time and being generally a nice guy, along with the global fame he had. 3 hit u, you *were* big, but by NO means the biggest, hell most people have forgotten about you. (No offence ;) )

A big name to me, though I doubt many people have heard of him, is Renez. Check him out, 95 in every skill, he's been levelling every skill evenly for years and I really respect him for his take on the game.

Oh I whole heartedly agree, most people have no idea who I am anymore, it's actually quite nice logging in (whenever it is, maybe once every 3 months) and not getting pestered all the time :)

@3 Hit U

After some thought, I decided against adding you in with the 04-07 pkers because, from what I remember, you were not quite the youtube sensation they were. You clearly would have made the top 10 on a "most influential/iconic pkers" thread, but I don't think I can put you on top 10 most influential/iconic players of RS2. Though I can say you did make it into my "famous players" screenshot folder back in 06 or something when I saw you at pest control =P.

I wouldn't have put my name in the pkers/stakers list of RS2 either as I wasn't a big fan of it and hardly ever did it.

My stats were more for-show on RS2, was awesome been the first pure to max and having no one close for almost a year, now-a-days I think there's accounts like mine was made and completed within 3 months or so right?
In fact, how many are maxed these days, does any one know?

Lol it's funny how people respond to 3hitu and deny his contribution because of his cockyness. Regardless of his attitude, he is a big name, a big influence, and started a unique trend. Don't cry because he's not humble, he's done more than most people here.

I'm not cocky (as much) any more, I've really mellowed a lot, it's surprising really lol.

Actually, he's still not maxed.
If you want to do melee only though, he was still 10 months later than me (he was 2nd) person melee-wise to max out if I remember rightly.

Back to the original post though, my opinion:
N0valyfe, as I remember he came into RS2 (not sure if he played RS1 much) but he got all 99s in the space of under 2 years I believe, that in itself is a huge, huge achievement and definitely deserves a mention.

Of course Zezima deserves a mention, he always should get one.

Sushidame (name change- Chilly) is fairly influencial, as far as I'm concerned. She has 54 Defence and 200M slayer xp, aswell as being 4 total levels away from being maxed with her defence level (excluding 120 dg). She's not exactly well-known, but I know she's influenced me a ton, so I thought I'd post it.
