Good post



Well I bet if you ask people 5 years ago they would say no but there are a lot still playing including my self (of and on)



Right now if the game stayed the same for the next five years no one would be playing that is playing now. But the game is always chaning and jagex adds something new very often. That's why people are still playing. 5 years ago this was not the same game and in 5 years it won't be the same game.

Yes there will still be a runescape, no i wont be playing.





Unless they stop coming up with updates as fast as they can they will start making updates that cause mass people quitting and the game more stupid. IMO rs1 was alot better then rs2 because 1. the staking, and 2. there wasnt a new type of armor every month, if you quit for a while you could actually come back and know what is going on. I quit before barrows came out and when i came back i was so confused it wasnt even funny. Soon we will start seeing updates like every 5 minutes a tree hits a 25 on you just to stop autoers, every once in a while picking flax you fall in and die, just stupid [cabbage]

I'll be 19.. There's little to no chance that I will be playing, although I do believe that it will still be here.

runescape won't be around in 2011. We'll run out of oil and no longer be able to use computers. This will force us to revert to dungeons and dragons which 95% of runescape players will start playing.




Well, I won't be running out of power. We have hydroelectric power here. :D

You dont need oil to power a computer its called hydro electricy.... and btw what does oil have to do with computers






If you didn't know alot of the components of computers are made from plastic, which is made from certain forms of oil. Which is distilled from crude oil. With no oil left, circuit boards cannot be made as conveniently, casings and screens with plastic coatings will be impossible to make, and computers will not be able to advance or be upgraded. THATS what oil has to do with computers.

I'm sure they'll find some other product to make electronics from. (searches google and prays)



Besides, consider these sources of power:

Nuculear

Hydroelectric (here)

Tidal

Wind

Geothermal.



Lots of CLEAN and renewable energy sources. So, when we run out of oil, I guess that will solve the pollution problem for the next billion years while we wait for the oil to come back. =P



And, don't forget about cars running on other things too.

i think ill still play but so little people would think i dont.



i will spend all my time on my wonderfull cbr600 lol



the only thing that can keep my off my motorbike and on runescape would be having a random day where everyones banks were cleared and everyone had a fair chance to own a party hat or something like that. the rares and everything would go into a specialest store and the prices would be the street average. the only way to get money would be to actually work and everything had to be sold for a certin price cos seeing level 3s with phats does my head in

You forgot the cleanest of the clean fuels, hydrogen. Burning hydrogen also produces energy, and all it gives off is pure water. Theres no money in it which is the only reason why its not a major energy source at the moment. If everyone wasn't so money hungry we could be using this clean fuel for many things.



Just as a side-note there are allready cars in prototype form that run on hydrogen cells and can top 100 Mph. And all they give off is water as said.

Try fusion, not Burnining. and by nuclear power I "think" you refer to fission wihich gives off little but VERY DANGEROUS waste, in Fusion you Smash two hydrogen atoms together and produce helium, and a neutron. look here for details, cleanest source you can get.



Anyway back to on topic i don't think i will be playing Runescape will still be around if not somone will have hijacked code and be providing it for free. The only thing tht might keep me playing at that time is a a corruption in the database (full wipe) seeing as all of the people who just want to show off would quit.

But thats only my opinion




Wrong. I'd destroy all the hydro electric power plants... because I like dungeon and dragons :)

Actually, large ammounts of silion resides in simple dirt. I remember a Popular Science about 4-6 months ago That talked aobut this EXACT same thing. The end conclusion was that even if we used up every last drop of oil on the earth, we would still be able to make computers.



Also, plastic cases are for noobs. Any good computer would have an alumnin case to effectively remove more heat.

i'll be 18 and 3 days off being 19 :) but yeah runescape will be around a shadow of its former glory a sort of show off of jaqexs previous hits, with no more updates. oh and fusion is better than nuclear, fusion has no hazardous bi-products
