If we're talking about tifers now, then Grimy has to be on the list. What he's done for the metagaming community has been nothing short of tremendous.

3hitu's answer was pretty funny :P

The guy still fails to recognize that noone cares about his account anymore. Sad.

Although, back in the day, he was quite the talk of the town, today it's pretty much dead.

Most of these names are unimportant to me and to the timeline of Runescape...

Zezima, N0valyfe, Bluerose13x, Xx Jut Xx, Sixfeetunder, The Sabre clan, Durial321, those are names that'll stick for a while, at least for those who know their history.

Most if not all of these new "iconic" people will come and go soon enough.

A year and a bit ago I was hailed as one of the most influential people on the game because the Climbing Boots ordeal, amongst other things. "Logdotzip for CEO!" etc, etc, basically last year's Jiblix. I still get recognized plenty in game, for that and for Youtube videos and such, but honestly, I find it a joke that people consider RuneScape Youtubers iconic in any way shape or form. Sparc Mac? Win All Day? etc? What TRUE influence have they made on the game? None whatsoever. There may have been someone who felt much stronger about the Climbing boots than I, someone may have felt much stronger about bots than Jiblix. You know the only reason myself or him got pushed ahead of others who were also discontent? We have a platform of expression that reaches a larger audience. Aside from that, we have made zero game-changing events happen. We are like the rest. I have not nor will I ever consider myself Iconic or famous or whatever. I, as well as no other player, should be awarded or given extra recognition for something we should all do anyways (The right thing). Unfortunately, the average playerbase age of RuneScape is very low in contrast to most other MMO's, so it's quite easy to warp the minds of the youth into thinking people with a lot of subscribers have some form of worth because of said subscribers. Unwarranted Self-importance, and what's sad is, a lot of people on Youtube don't even want it, they're given it by other ignorant people.


People will forget about what Jiblix did in time, and while I do think it's cool the stand he made, so did everyone about me when I did it. Now it's just a bygone memory.

Quite the opposite (2nd line), I completely agree with the bottom line, I'll even add to it; hardly any one knows of my name any more.

Just Signed up after my long absence from the game, which was before they got rid of Pking/free trade. Anyway on topic..

1. Fear figment, an inspiration to many pkers from 2005-2007. Made the G maul fashionable and a staple in any melee pkers arsenal. Videos where way ahead of that time and the original pk vids got over 100000 views. Reposted videos are still available on you tube, up there with the best mahatma, 3 hit u, kids ranqe.

2. Chessy018, Famously hacked by members of FOE a clan i was in coincidently many years ago. Was arguably the richest player in runescape and created the flipping clan under her name. The clan who buy out an item " The item of her choosing of course" and made $$$. Say what you may about her ruthless business like tactics, a player who will be up their in terms of fame. Her corny Video remains on youtube of her story.

This thread isnt fame its influence. If he believes that he influenced the creation of pures in the pvp scene and can back up that claim it doesnt matter who knows his name.

Zezima was the biggest one overall (everyone had him on their friends list)
Durial321 because of the Fally Massacure
zzzzamorak for being a boss skiller
The Old Nite for being a true bro, and one of the saddest losses to the community

I'm pretty sure his 16000+ subscribers and several people here on tip.it know who he is.
Just because it applies to you doesn't mean it applies to everyone.

You can laugh, but trust me, I had my fifteen minutes, or fifteen weeks. I only said that to make a point anyways; none of it lasts, and I scoff at the people who say Youtubers are iconic or whatever simply because of their PK or staking videos, etc.

The climbing boots incident is synonymous with Logdotzip.

Anyway, Zarfot.
