Well here is something I have found interesting talking to others about. Why does everyone play the game and what motivates you?
This is quite interesting amongst higher level players aswell as I have asked 2-3 players over 2b xp.
Detail would be highly appreciated :)
for e.g. I feel like rs is keeping me safe and off the streets (smoked pot all day everyday for nearly a full year before I started playing hard), I also enjoy seeing my gains + efficient days. My goal is to gain as much efficient xp before I lose motivation :)

I play because I'm bored. I play when I can't ride my motorcycle or I'm home from work tired. I play when I'm sick and can't go and hangout with friends.

I play merely for the interaction with other players, that can be achieved despite my oddball work schedule. I also like some of the mechanisms behind Runescape, which bring me back to play.


I do however, hate most things in RuneScape. Almost all of them are related to grinding, or British humour.

I have all the 99s, and have been playing since 2001. Comped 4/30/15 

My Araxxi Kills: 459::Araxxi Drops(KC):

Araxxi Hilts: 4x Eye (14/126/149/459), Web - (100) Fang (193)

A lack of a games console and better things to do IRL as I'm on my summer holidays, temporarily deaf in one ear and rather sunburnt.

I like seeing numbers get bigger.

Most content is usually fun or novel in some way, and that gets my attention.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

I like the progress and the evolution of my account as well as the game itself. It's a constant process that I can pick up on whenever I feel like it. It's rewarding to know that (apart maybe losing some items) my account will never go backwards and with every experience I get I know I'm slowly becoming better. It's so easy to feel achieved when everything is so clearly laddered. Something that doesn't really happen in real life. Yes you might study, graduate, get a job, find a girl, settle down - who knows what. In life it's really hard to know if you are actually improving yourself - your skills or your personality.

RuneScape is like easy source of feeling achieved and get good feelings about improving and becoming better. The safety of knowing that there aren't really many bad decision in RuneScape and basically all routes go forward is something that still keeps me playing after 10 years. Not very much but still enough to keep me satisfied every time I decide to play. Be it 1 hour a week or 6 hours a day.

Waiting for new skill atm playing steam games. When I was really addicted probably the fact that I didn't have a good computer and RS is a great timesink game since I was pretty depressed and had alot of free time too.....I liked slayer preeoc and getting lots of effigies as well as dungeoneering getting to 200m cause it didn't really get boring. So I guess enjoying scape and competition a few years ago 1b exp was rank 110 or so on highscores. I guess enjoyment/seeing the progress is a motivation for any game, so other games would be the story or the "mastering the game" aspect even games with the sole purpose of goofing around you can still make own goals.

200m's don't really motivate me but others are motivated by the true completion aspect of it.

I go through phases of playing... It mostly boils down to if I'm bored of my Xbox/life/essay work.

Reacting impulsively and saying what's on your mind feels oh so good.. for a little, until you realize you just started WWIII.
