Anyone else been playing runescape for a long time? (5+ year

Recommended Posts

I started back in May of 1942. It was a cold and rainy day....

 

 

 

For those people who think they played the game before 2001, trust me, you did not. Unless you rubbed elbows with the Gowers over in England, you were playing something else, but certainly not RS. Don't bother with the beta testing concept either. I'd sooner believe you were normal, so why fight it?

 

 

 

:roll:

 

 

 

I did start in May 2001. I'm pretty sure I wasn't alive in 1942 either.

I started playing late 2001 but I quit for 2 years, does that count? I remember bluerose, most famous player in rs. Then later on it was gearshifter, I think because he had the most exp. Full ady used to be 100k or something :shock:

Yea i still play. I was a forum mod back in the very old days and then player mod in rs along with *moderator* (think you might remeber him as well) until Jagex done away with the old forums ;) So i had about a year off from moderating and then came back as one when they were reintroduced.

 

 

 

I dont play much just mainly CW and mini games, though i do abit of salying as well now and again.

One of my favorite memories was when JaGeX was trying to create a chat filter to prevent players from swearing in-game. Now, the one in place may be a bit buggy, but the one I recall best was when they tried to change the questionable text to "Cabbage!"...somehow or other, there was a bug for a whole day where 2 out of every 3 times someone spoke, "Cabbage!" came out instead of what they meant to say. Standing in Varrock Town Square and listening to the mayhem was hilarious.

 

 

 

When rune armor came out, I was among the chaos to nab rune items from the champ's guild. it was at least a day or two before I managed to get my hands on a rune long.

 

 

 

The first day of fishing was mayhem, as I recall...someone had already nabbed level 36 by the time I woke up and logged on that day.

 

 

 

I remember the laundry list of coal mules I used to have when I was trying to buy my first Addy sq shield from Bluerose.

 

 

 

Ah, good times.

I've played Runescape for 5 years, but my origonal account was hacked and stolen :S for thouse of you who played in 01-02, remember the recovery question change standby? Right, theyre wasnt one. Oh well lol

 

 

 

I started playing like 3 or 4 days before members came out :P

 

 

 

I chose warrior (of course), the thing i remember most was r2h being so very expensive (500-750k) and my friend pking them and selling them

 

 

 

I also remember my cracker. I cracked it on some dude, he said he got some addy weapon, i got a pink (now purple) party hat. i was peeved because i thought he got the better part of the deal, so i dropped the party hat becasue it looked...well, i was almost 11 then! I didnt want to look like a girl! but that was a mistake that annoys me to this day :oops:

I chose to be a miner when you could choose. I remember walking around Runescape with my old old old old friend Doc41. I think this was 2001 or something. I was trying to get a rune 2h but it was waaaaaay to exspensive.

 

 

 

I also remember firemaking. My mind is kinda blurry.

I started february 2001 and played to end of 2002 using character M Oldfield...then i played other character few months more and havent played after that...tried RS2 beta but never played after it was offically released.

 

 

 

M Oldfield was, and will always be a legend.

 

 

 

i started about 2 weeks before bluerose13x could make steel kites :wink: so like 5 1/2 years? :?: back with no wildy, bank could only hold money, you could pick between pker/non pker, no one had rune and when i was a noob ( oh wait i still am! ) :P

 

 

 

i remember sabres and gladz fighting alot :P good old days when i had a lot of fun playing :wink: and back when i was leading clans and had an impact on the clan world 8) now i have faded out and hardly anybody reconizes me :? oh well i had my "15 minutes of fame" :P

heh.

 

 

 

about once a year you see a post like this, funny i happened to of noticed it for the first time I've visited this forum in like a year...

 

 

 

Ive been playing since before April 01, the 2nd server was just released, as well as the removal of dark magic, and I think dark prayer.

 

 

 

And I kinda say the same thing for every post of this type,

 

I started out as au cooldude, because some people I knew on IRC chats were playing it, and somewhat the fellow immature friend of mine on the IRC chat became my rival. (I was 11 when i started RS).

 

 

 

I was known as AU Cooldude, I played a bit, never was a hard core trainer though, so I lazied around being 'social'. I Started out of course as the warrior class? (i think thats what they 'called' it).

 

 

 

Most of my friendships from then reached into the Ice Cave, and also the 'ghost town' dungeon vsing Giants.

 

I had met S A X there, and recall him being extactic one day when sandytrain logged off, and he became the no.1 on the server with prayer (at 40 something).

 

 

 

I did the dragon quest with sandytrain, needamaid, lady lynda and someone else, nice memory which I'm sure most people could be potentially jealous of, being a complete newb (maybe level 60 combat, I have a pic somewhere of me just after doing dragon quest), doing the biggest quest of the time, with the highest leveled [fighters] around.

 

 

 

Funny to see Tiddles post (nice to see your still around), he was the reason I made poweraxis lol, he helped me get wealthy, because I used to protect him while he mined rune, and then I would merchant it for him, he then said one day that he'd get me 20k natures (so i could get 80 mage), and because I couldn't be bothered raising any other stats, until I had my 20k natures from Tiddles. I made poweraxis from this result, and well he became my love, He was pure, I trained him hard, and I was SUPER lucky with 3 hits back then, i swear i had a bugged attack level.. 64 30 84.

 

 

 

Anyway, thats way after RS was released, but I remember starting out as pk, but then changing after going smithing one day, and then lagging and getting killed :( and also when I first started, I attacked a bear, and I couldn't get away, and it killed me while some level 15 in full iron armour watched me as I begged for help :(

 

 

 

Anyway, yeh these posts are so cleche but its nice to see some person I knew pop up posting in these, I know Meili from the wilderness forum pugxsi and jenstarr had (even though not really knew her well).

 

 

 

Well cherios.

The only people who tell you that you can't do something are those who have already given up on their own dreams so feel the need to discourage yours.
