In Topic: New Top 250 F2P Skill Total List

15 August 2012 - 05:33 AM

Wow, it's nice to see the old list being revived, haven't been to this post for long time (posting anyways) hope all the F2P and ex-F2P are doing well. Just wondering what's the minimum required level to get into the new list now?

PS: Nice feature to see the nationality for each player, glad to see a few Canadians on top of the list (even though we don't have that many medals at Olympic).

Actually, when I first started playing Runescape, I was checking the hiscores quite often. I looked up my friend, trying to beat him, and that was provided with me goals. When I was bored, I'd go around exploring, questing or whatever.

It's definitely not clear to say how much thisis going to hurt the amount of new players coming into the game, but just basing it off your personal experience is kind of ignorant and short-sighted.


I think what we all can agree on is this:

1.This *will* make the game more unattractive for new players by a certain amount
2.A certain amount of old players will be fed up enough to stop their subscription
3.Another certain amount might at least be fed up enough to stop telling other people about Runescape or might talk negatively

4.A certain amount of players will feel the pressure to remain on the highscores, be it after they have achieved huge goals and quit, or if they're f2p.


The only question is business wise, does the first section outweigh the second one? I think it will in the long run, but that's down to opinion, seeing that we don't have any accessible facts.


I actually agree partly jrhairychest and TOTALLY with Jonanananas. Even thouse I don't pay, I actually talk to others in gaming community how RS appeals to me. Simply because somehwere down your RS career, you will enter a competitive stage with someone when you hit certain combat level. I actually remember compete with this other player I met to the point we screen shot each others highscore every day to see how much xp we gained.

When I started, I didn't even know about highscore existed, at least not for first few weeks, all I was doing was training and minding my own business. As I get to know the game a bit more, I actually start to use it to check out elite players like Zezima or Mendark 9 and using the highscore partly to determine if someone is a bot part due to abnormal xp categories (before I report them by accident) and to validate someone's stat if they could help with skill (again with skill lending, it's not really an issue anymore). Granted, none of that really applies now and it was back then. The solution can be solved by a simple tweak to the highscore by hiding the extremely long term inactive account, and reactivate them once the owner decide to come out of retirement.

Basically, many of us old RS geezers, old time players, F2pers want it to stay around because the positive experience we had in past, present and future. But it will be totally up to Jagex to see what they want to do with it.

Lastly, the pictures that I thought was gone is back, so here it is, linked curtesy by LordAdib

Thought I'd share this:




What happen to that picture? I saw it this morning before head to work and wanted to save it when I come back. Even though pictures were poorly drawn, but it believer such a strong message (almost cried for some reason). I wish everyone in Runescape can see it.

I am not sure if this is the reason Andrew isn't with Jagex anymore, seems how the game is going in the opposite direction the founders were intended.


You mean this picture?


Odd, it's there again. lol. It wouldn't show it on my computer yesterday, and I even went to the website that hosted the image to see if I can get it. I am saving it now. Thx man.

In Topic: The F2P General Discussion Thread

Its almost as though Jagex is TRYING to kill off f2p.

Would they do that? Would they really destroy what basicly is half of the entire fan-base for money?


You should have seen the pictures LordA posted in Top 250 F2p list thread, that pretty much sums it up, but its gone for some reason....within one day...anyone happen to save it?

F2P was alive and kicking around 2005 to early 2006 or 07. If Jagex has implemented this bot nuke earlier, all those wildy and free trade removal wouldn't happen in the first place, among other big unpleasantness.

Only time will tell if this move is right one or not, since most people that do cared about highscore are current player base. I suppose Jagex expect most people to move on, and new player that come in didn't know that highscore exist for everyone in the first place.

I was so looking forward to being bumped up on the list due to removal of bots (not sure about inactive ones, since I consider some of them legends), but I guess I won't know because I am pure F2P........
