The Tip.it times touch on it, but it'd be nice to hear reasons from those that did stop for a bit and what got you playing again.

Personally, I stopped when I went overseas to Japan as getting a consistent connection was impossible in my situation. I kept up on what was happening and still posted now and again, but did not play. It wasn't till like three years later that I re-upped membership to try out the new dungeoneering skill for a couple of months (happened to be in the US for training during that time). What got me going recently was the start up of member loyalty points. Figured that the points would be reasonable to build up even if I didn't play at, which led me to doing some daily/weekly tasks (mtk, tears, circus), which further led me to level farming (doing pineapple/calquat since it's once per day), doing penguins (did both quests recently to max out), hanky, quests, etc.

I'm not grinding like I used to, just doing the daily/weekly tasks on top of the occasional catch up quest (still have 40+ over the last four years to do). Kind of cool figuring out the new best way of doing things.

You just keep coming back each major update, and sometimes you find the fun in playing again.

First they came to fishing
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

Then they came to the yews
and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

Then they came for the ores
and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

I think once something new comes out, alot people "come back". But like after a week or so, the urge of playing just dies again.

I came back, diced, got a unicorn, diced more then quit again

Nothing to keep me hooked anymore

A money pouch would be cool. So would a remote price checker. But honestly I'm thinking an insta-Jcoins-market. LOW ON PRAYER AND DONT LIKE XP WASTE?! BUY AN ULTRA PRAYER RESTORE POTION INSTANTLY FOR JUST 75 CENTS! STAY AT BANDOS ALL DAY/AS LONG YOU HAVE MONEY!

I usually only play during the Summer. Most of the time I have something to occupy my time, but in the summer I get really bored and just start playing RS again.

I came back when I reached up to a point where I just had nothing else to do. I took plenty of breaks and went on and off at times but now I think I'm genuinely leaving
for good since theres more mmorpgs out there. After playing for 7 years, I think my time in Runescape is over. I can't imagine playing any longer especially when Jagex is
constantly changing the game for the worse.

i quit a few times one when i majorly gave away all my items but i kept a cashpile...lol

hmm i came back to p2p after 2 months then members ran out again so i was like "hmm i havent played scape in awhile" then i came back again

Now i only play for updates i dont see a point in officially quitting unless you cant control your time played( i was a major addict most of my scape time but now im not...) if i become a major addict again then i wont renew members again or will cancel if its recurring. Tho i am a major addict to conspiracy forums and always looking for cheap 9.99 pc games :P

This. Still debating whether or not to come back, don't know how much free time I'll have that I can't do anything else...

I just play when I'm really bored now. But then I can't really find anything I want to do so I log off.

Having a lot of free time and a lot of updates to catch up on makes me come back usualy for a few weeks then "quit" again, havent logged on for a couple of months but I will when I find the time to get my quest cape back and maybe finish a 99 or two. I just can't play rs day in day out like I used to, I enjoy rs a lot more now if I take it in small doses. I've never intended on quitting for good, I just take breaks from the game sometimes lasting over a year but always intend on coming back to scape at some point, the day I get completionist cape maybe I will quit :)

I play it every now and then but all of a sudden I found out fun things and since then im hooked... the fun just keeps coming and im like a kid with a constant candy flow now :)
Once the candies stop I return to hibernate mode and log in every once in a while, you know maintain the money pile and stuff like that.
Me and the wise old man go way back.... he was a foolish boy back then.

I've played more than a few MMOs, including that other big MMORPG with Orcs and Elves and Gnomes... That's the usual reason for me to drift away... I get bored, or I decide to try out a new game, I get caught up for a while, and then I get bored and come back to RS. The real thing that keeps me coming back is my guild. I've been in plenty of clans and guilds and alliances, and none are as much fun as the ladies and gentlemen of SGV1.

And you know, I don't pay 15 bucks a month to get verbally abused by Huntards and Fail Tanks.
