I quit for awhile because I got tired of dying all the time due to my crappy dial-up. I now have DSL and don't disconnect every thirty seconds or so.

Quit in 08 because every honourable clan with a good community appeared to be dead.
I then found WG.

The only reason I ever come back these days is to check on bots - and mostly these trips are depressing.

Why most players come back is simple, they have already invested way too much time in THIS game to get into another epic MMO - even though others might be better, more epic, and have much better graphics. It's a self-perpetuating cycle. QUIT NOW! RS is a drug.

I quit a few years ago because I had no time, the other half was always home or I was doing things. Now she's started working and I have more free time. I started back doing some more 'afk' things, leveling fletching as I can buy the resources and alch for profit (thanks botters) as I, used to be and still mainly are, a pretty self sufficient player - all my smithing xp has come from what I've mined, FM xp from what I've WC, etc.
Then some quests, and deciding I want a QC again so skilling partly for the max levels required for all quests and, my levels not exactly being high meant, I still have plenty I can reasonably easily achieve with the comparitivley little input. Also the initial excitement of XBL has worn off and I can do things like fletch when I'm playing that.

I like how there are a variety of reasons people are giving for both quitting and coming back now and again. For all its faults, the game does offer entertainment for a small price. Thankfully, I'm not driven to max out a character nor is it necessary to enjoy the game as I'm playing it.

I stopped because I slowly became tired of the game but returned after playing other mmorpg games and deciding RS is probably the one which I enjoy the most.

I quit playing (I only had 100 hours in the game anyway) because my sons stopped playing. They started again and after a few months to make sure they were sticking with it for a while, I repurchased membership so that I could play alongside them. I've been more active with it than they have over the past month, though.

Every time I quit anymore it is due to real life. Mostly work, but sometimes due to boredom or crappy updates. I just come back because I know there's always a 99 to get, and needless to say every time it has worked. :)

I quit because being a slave got a little boring, but then my life became empty so I needed a second job again.

I started playing Runescape the day after the Slayer skill was released(no idea what date this was).

I quit in December 2007 because all my close friends who I played with had stopped playing and decided to play WoW instead, rather than be on my own in RuneScape I followed them.

I played WoW regularly up until Janurary of this year, I was in a world top100 PvE guild raiding several times a week but had to stop to focus on my final year at University to get a decent grade.

Although I didn't have enough time to dedicate myself to raiding in WoW, I still had some spare "bored" time I wanted to fill and decided to give RuneScape another try, I've played a couple hours each day since then.


Basically I came back after a 3Year break because I didn't have enough spare time to play WoW, but wanted to fill it with some other MMORPG content which didn't require me to be on for a set amount each week.

I think even when it's got to the point where the level grinding is no longer interesting, it's always worth coming back to play the new quests and stuff when they've built up a little. (and it's fun to give some of the new minigames and distractions and diversions a quick go too)

Quests were always my favourite bit of the game anyway. Say what you like about other parts of the game, quests haven't really been affected by other changes. - plenty of quality still coming out. Right now i've got to get 4 extra skill total to play Ritual of the Mahjarrat which has got me levelling again.

I started Runescape in '05 and have quit two times after that, first it was in '07 because I started another game. Came back after a few months. Next time quit in '09 due to my military service and lack of playing time. Wasn't even interested of the game anyway anymore. Came back in '11 to fill the free time. And now I'm playing too much again.

Never have quit, but quit giving them money. It only seemed to encoruage them. :rolleyes:

Usually when I "quit" it's because I can't access Runescape for whatever reason.

I came back because of clanning. That's really the only thing keeping me playing this game right now.
