Sorry to hear from your loss. I think everyone has been at a point where they lost money due to other people's evilness. Been lured into wildy wearing a red h'ween, been hacked for over 500m because a guy I had been friends with for nearly 4 years suddenly hacked into my account with all the info he gathered over the years to solve my recovery questions... I mean: there's no limits to the greed of other people. Now I stopped sharing personal info and I'm not helping out people anymore. If a stranger comes to me for a helping hand I tell 'em to leave me alone. Sad how bad experiences changed my in-game behaviour and kindness...


wow, that's awful, I mean, losing that huge amount of time, cash, and effort is bad, but to have a friend do that, that's, terrible, to put it in clean language.

I've been fluctuating between being talking and being helpful and being only nice to my friends. Like, I've seen a few low level players being mauled by bears or whatever, I go kill the bear for them.

What kept you motivated to play after those kind of losses? being betrayed by a friend and losing 500m + a red mask and whatever else?


What kept me motivated is the fact that RS remains the nicest game MMORPG I've ever played. The goals are very long term and the game itself provides fun for every type of player. Whether you are a skiller (like me) or a mercher, pker or bosshunter; the game remains challenging...
I've tried other games like LOTRO & WOW and those were fun to start but once you reached max combat & max crafting levels all there was left to do was farm bosses week after week to get max gear. And by the time you reached that they plan a new update box, you had to buy again (on top of the +10€ member fee month after month) and you could restart leveling, crafting and getting geared up again.
Not my cup of tea.

OT: Besides there are scammers in every game and WOW is probably the game that has the most hacked accounts ever. So after all RS isn't so bad :) The best thing to do is not to worry too much about in game value and just have fun in your own way. Losing cash because of greedy people isn't fun, especially when they rob all of your bank value but you still have your skills to get back on track. Exactly 2 months after being hacked I've gathered 7 skillcapes and got almost all my money back. Got full melee slayer gear again (bandos, dfs, rapier etc etc) only thing is still miss is my Armadyl ranged gear but working on that now. Should have that in less than 10 days normally :) Making cash is very easy once you got the skills...

2016 goals: all skills +30mil xp - Completed this goal 11th December 2016 smile.gif
2017 goals: get at least 3 more master capes (start xp: invention done@21st Jan, mining done@2nd April & ranged 76/104mil done@June 20th) & all skills +40mil xp (done 24th August)

That's intersting. I've been doing some thinking, and I also noticed a bunch of lvl 3 pures with 99 farming when I've been doing herb runs. I think that if I lost this account, that'd be the one thing to make me quit, otherwise, like you said, I think I'll just keep doing whatever skills and not worry about the in game value. The money will come. Skills and fun should be the focus. I've actually been debating about going for another 99, or also just doing slayer to get melee up.

I haven't dared trying other MMO games. I feel like I picked my one game (actually my first MMO) and I should stick with it. I like it, and I wouldn't want to start over. I like the huge variety RS has, and even if you get maxed there is still plenty to do even if you get tired of boss farming.

I can't stand those scammer, couldn't we just play legit and have fun?

Unfortunately, it's not as profitable. As long as crime pays, it will continue.

Even if it didn't pay, some people would continue to do so anyway just to screw people over.
