It is an interesting way to try and bring new players into automatically paying for Runescape. It's like they give you a taste and then take it away and say you have to pay for it. Rather than the old model where you're given a version that is full in its own standards, why venture elsewhere? I think this will definitely bring in more member accounts in the long run, the issue to solve though is to get new players signing up in the first place. (Welcome Spimuncular :))

Is that even possible?


As for the trial itself, no big surprise really, and I think it's a good step.

... Hate they way they're making it sound like f2p doesn't even exist... You get a free trial but a paid game! But then again let's not forget to brag about how rs is the number 1 free mmo (years ago).

Now that you mention it, I suppose not. :P

I haven't created an account in... ummm.... 5+ years so I forgot that email addresses are actually important now.

Created a whole new email account and registered a new account. No free trial. Is this limited by geographic region maybe?

Would be strange, considering that it's not dependant on payment options, which is really the only reason I could think of why you would limited to certain countries.

Could be. Someone on the 1st page whose location says Canada said it didn't work for him either.

Could they possibly be tracking the IP of the accounts? If on a members or even a long-time F2p account they have your last IP registered and you create a new account with that, I could see them stopping the trial. Would possibly be there toreduce RWT and botting accounts being mass created.

*Confusion*

As soon as you register an account it receives a free trial membership? Or is it like that time where they offered the trial to anyone who hasn't become a Member but you'd still need to give Credit card information, I'll try it myself but Runescape seems to be offline now.

I assume the RWT possibility wouldn't be a deterrent since the new accounts (presumably?) have the 25k giveaway limit.

For the record, I live in the UK. So that is a possibility I guess. :) After I signed up I was sent an email immediately to activate the free trial, and now every time I sign in I'm asked whether I would like to upgrade to a member's account or continue with the trial.

I think this will definitely bring in more member accounts in the long run, the issue to solve though is to get new players signing up in the first place. (Welcome Spimuncular :))


Thankew! :D <3

Wow, a new player to RuneScape? I can honestly say, I haven't personally seen one in a long, long time. Being a member and rarely frequenting F2P, only using certain chats, means it's normally only experience players I meet. So it's nice to see a new face!

Thanks for your kind words. :) I personally like that the people around me are all more experienced than I am; it means I am always able to get solid advice if needed (Without being too annoying, I hope ) and gives me motivation to succeed and catch up with everyone else despite their massive head-start.

But to someone who has put so much time and devotion into Runescape, I can see why a lack of new players would be disconcerting. All I can say is that I intend to stick around for a good while, and if I'm here what more do you need? ;)
