I haven't read this entire thread, but has anyone mentioned "Summer Sleep" or any of the other well-known "skillers" like "Zzzamorak"?

... oh and what was the name of that one player who was totally F2P and had 99 in all the F2P skills?

:unsure:

Syzygy?

What about omustardo/Castle Wars - both for being the first person to a trimmed completionist cape and (perhaps more importantly for this thread) for being the first person to publicly advocate the use of mousekeys in runescape.

Or A C I D Y for accidentally inventing price manipulation clans?

This definitely makes him iconic, I'm not sure about influential though. I think Zezima was going for some of the things that are currently trimmed comp reqs, such as champion's challenge (he got 4k chompy kills). Don't think he went for castle wars games though.

Durial32 - complete boss. 6/6/6 massacre.

Zezima - self explanatory.

N0valyfe - probably started the stupid trend of "efficiency", but a great player nonetheless.

Cursed You - great staker.

I Mahatma I, 3 Hit U, Sparc Mac, Kids Ranqe - famous pkers.

Duke Freedom, Chessy018 - Rich beyond belief.

Right now i think my vote goes to Jiblex for his incredible courage to walk into the howling darkness, and to not return...


And also to make videos about botting and how bad it is and get de-modded over it

Zezima - obvious reasons. He was the #1 player when I started playing and he remained at that position until he quit. For me he has always been THE #1.

Zarfot - He's the one that got me more intrested into skilling and trying to maintain a certain "max" xp/hr.

N0valyfe - Never really payed alot of attention to him because I wasn't focused on the rest of the highscores except for that #1 spot. But from what I've been hearing lately he sure is a legend.

SUOMI - Extremely nice guy and has alot of dedication to the game and to reach the goal of 200m in all skills.

The Old Nite - He was the 1st person that I know of that was a nice "high level" person. In the days when I was a noob, not many 115+ people were actually nice people and they considered themselves above everyone else. The Old Nite changed my view on high level people :P.

Elvemage and other well known pkers - for their epic vids that I've enjoyed alot over the years and still enjoy.

El Popo1, Syzygy, Franzk, Water, Missoverflow and most top F2P - I have more respect for those people than anyone else in the game. I've been a fan of F2P for many years and I sometimes regret ever becoming member but ofcourse, members is alot of fun too ;).

@haimonek, I have probably never agreed with anyone to this extent, everything you said I second :) never actually met Suomi but I have read his posts etc and seems like a really nice guy, and add the fact that he's a fellow Finn, that's instant win :P

I think zezima is the most famous and really was old school most influental player.

But times have moved on i believe it is now S u o m i because of the speed he is going through 200m and the fact that he has been clever enough to do the slower skills first so he can completely destroy people ahead of him with fast buyables later on. people also refer to him alot when talking about very fast xp because the way he has been breaking various slayer records on many tracker websites :rolleyes: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbup:

Half of these players shouldn't even be listed, if you go back a few years they weren't even known at all.

Zezima:
The biggest name in Runescape without a doubt.

3 Hit U:
I don't know why I Mahatma I is even listed when all he ever did was try and copy Dan.

Duke Freedom:
The biggest merchant back then.

Charlie187:
Only people who lived in the Wilderness would know his name and it wasn't for anything worth mentioning.

Larryr:
Held the #1 Runecrafting spot for a very long time, had a huge taskforce working for him/her in Karamja.

1. Zezima: Will always be the king of runescape, if only because when new players start thinking about runescape in a somewhat competitive manner, and begin asking who the best player is, the default answer is Zezima. He is probably the most famous player of any game. Hell, he was mentioned as an aside in the Times a couple years back. For an online gamer to be mentioned in a mainstream broadsheet is pretty incredible.
2. S U O M I: Combines dedication with efficiency. If he doesn't achieve 200M all skills, I would happily bet anyone that no one will. And he's a nice guy too. He spent a lot of time on his TipIt interview, and is always friendly in his TipIt forum posts and in game.
3. Kingduffy: I can't remember him not being near the top of the hiscores. 'nuff said.
4. Sparc Mac: Nice vids, and the PVE aspect of Runescape is one I am very interested in.
5. Hellfire46: Introduced me to the game six or seven years ago, so is one of my most influential players :P

I feel like Jiblix is becoming an iconic player these days after his demodding :P Influential maybe because of his gut to voice his opinion as a mod.

But for me it'd probably be Zezima, when I was a noob I looked up to him and still do even if he isn't #1 anymore. :)

N0valyfe is the only one that comes to mind, he came out of nowhere and gave Zezima a run for his money for awhile there.

Then of course there's the pkers, like 3 Hit U, Mahatma, etc.

A bunch of TIFers are far more influential, to me anyway, Sykoknight comes to mind here.

Duke Freedom:

For me those 3 have to be top.
And, for me, Zzzamorak - to me the most famous skiller (I don't doubt there are more or even better!).
I'd agree with Coandca5 that there are some influential TIFers to me, for example, Axe Man Jack - if it wasn't for his Slayer guide I never would have got into Slayer as much as I did.

I also noticed after reading this thread that Zezima has got 99 Summoning and 120 Dungeoneering now.
