Most influential/iconic players of RS2?

Recommended Posts

To be honest, no one can really match Zezima. He hasn't even been maxed for 3 years, let alone rank 1, and is still better known than the current top players. I still find it amazing how much of an influence he had on RS.

 

Well said, but I think the coolest thing is how, as newer players join the game, while they would be hard pressed to find Zezima on the highscores these days, his legendary status is passed on by word of mouth (er more like word of keyboard) between older players and their newer friends. This is truly unique, and I can think of no other individual whose fame and notoriety spreads in such a way.

I think myself, for showing Pures/Lower defence accounts could still be created with success after the combat system changes from RS1 to RS2 (only 3 dominant levels per combat, not 4).

I have never heard of you in my entire life.

Really? That is surprising because he was one of the only few maxed rune pures (if not the first). He may seem conceited for throwing his name in the mix but the OP included pures in his list and in that case 3HitU has to be mentioned.

 

And there should also be a mention of someone like Chessy018, simply because merching clans manipulating the GE was such an issue back then and she was the leader of one of the biggest of these clans. Not to mention the enormous amount of wealth she collected. She would go on my list simply because of her influence on the game.

Back before the wilderness was replaced with bounty hunter, and after RS2 became the main game, Pking was a lot different than it is today. Because training all combat skills was much, much slower, there were a lot fewer pures (because people resented putting in the effort to train to "perfect" pking stats). 3HitU was one of the first maxed pures (not sure exactly what type) and he was very innovative in his stats for the time. He was very low defence (I think 45 at the highest, but I feel like he was 1 defence for a while) and he ended up being a very successful and famous pker during his time. Many people tried to mimic his accounts stats so they could pk like him. But as pures became more and more common, and eventually, the norm, his fame declined.

 

Its also worth noting that during the switch from classic to RS2, combat mechanics changed drastically, which further emphasized the innovation of 3hitu's account for his time.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

As adamant as I have been to not take part in price manipulation, I'd nominate chessy for both her pre-GE merchanting (she owned the willow market, as well as raw lobsters, I think) and post-GE merchanting/manipulation, which was so wildly successful and controversial that even j-mods couldn't keep their rules straight.

 

At the release of free trade, her santa pile (80b), assuming liquidity, was worth over $60,000 in the black market. That's quite an achievement.

Zezima and Zarfot both grab the top spot.

 

Also, this might be only me, but Bwuk Im Pb deserves a spot on that list as well. Pretty much everyone knew who he was.

I think anyone who PKed in the starting days of RS2 had at least heard of 3HitU. Those were the fun days. Wasn't like the current game where everyone's maxed out and with the best gear :D

I remember actually PK'ing with a magic shortbow, 70 ranged and still getting solid kills. Right now that just seems some noobish utopia.

 

Anyhow, Zezima, King Duffy and the Old Nite are the only ones who I remember from the not-PKing scene.

Definitely Zarfot and Zezima.

 

And more personally, Sxq Power (tip.iter) had tons of MHing videos years ago that really inspired me to want to max combat. He's basically the reason I've been working towards that for so many years.

Bragging isn't lying. It's to talk about something with excessive self-pride, so he is bragging; and being arrogant. Of course plenty of people have heard of him, such as myself, but that doesn't mean he is an influential player. The fact he believes he 'proved' to people that pure's were still viable PK'ers after the release of RS2 is also ridiculous. People have brains and worked this out on their own.

 

The one thing he can be mentioned as an influential player for is the fact he was the first, or at least one of the first, to reach the 'maxed pure' status, but his previous boasts of arrogance demote him, he reminds me of people who give to charity and then tell everyone about it. It's kind of ironic and devaluing.

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.

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.

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

 

Also +1 to chessy018.

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.
