Ok this is probably a stupid question, but dammit I'll ask it anyway!

I have to take a serious break from RS due to RL commitments (same old story!) and I want to know what the consequences of canceling my membership are.

If I cancel my membership subscription I know my bank space will be reduced, and since my bank is full bar ~30 spaces I imagine it will be unaccessable if I log in as a free player (which I won't be doing, but just hypothetically). My questions all boil down to this, can I cancel my subscription today, for example, and then reinstate it say a year from now with no negative consequences? I.e. I won't lose the contents of my bank etc even if I cannot access my bank until I resubscribe.

Any info from those who've actually done this would be helpful. Cheers!


No, you won't lose anything, no matter how long the break is.


Lovely! Thanks for your reply. I've been playing since 2004 and, whilst it's by no means certain that I'll return, I do hope to be able to afford the time for RS again in the future. Especially after all that effort.

Must fight the addiction and do some sodding work.

Cheers!

Dear Unseen Sky Goblin those are some high reqs! Impressive. I can do many of the diary tasks but by no means all (except Lumby, natch). It seems like there will be some training to do! (and D-bones are gonna rocket imo).

In Topic: Should Endgame Quests Require Awesome Levels?

07 September 2010 - 09:32 AM

Interesting. ~90% of the thread is a semantic quibble over whether or not Dungeoneering is an X or a Y. Way to miss the point fellas! ;-)

Thanks to everyone who answered, when I get a minute I'll sort the wheat from the chaff and try to extend the discussion beyond the "you're clearly a kiddy fiddler because Dungeoneering is actually some type of banana" level.

In Topic: Why Do You Play RS Over Other MMOs?

07 September 2010 - 09:27 AM

Inspired by this thread I did something very stupid yesterday. I played WoW.

Erm, it's rather good in many ways. The problem is I like RS WAY more (despite the graphical wonderfest that is WoW, sorry but it is pretty) for all the reasons I mentioned earlier. What will keep me in RS is the storyline and how the quests work to expand it. Other people's mileage may vary.

WoW quests so far seem to be remarkably like the Slayer skill in RS (kill X of this). I have to say that I like the apparently faster levelling of WoW (that might be because of my noobishness) because (raids and whatnot aside, something I have yet to get to) it appears to me at least that I can max a character quickly in WoW. I once calculated I'd be 63 before I managed to max my RS character...and I am >30 years away from that!

So for someone with limited time to invest in gaming (until yesterday RS was the only game I've played since a very long time ago) it seems like WoW has a quicker return on time invested. Now I'll qualify that by saying that is my initial impression, I'm not trying to start some infantile flamewar on WoW vs RS, but I'd genuinely appreciate the input of people with more experience of WoW. Are my initial impressions valid? I.e. is it true that levelling to maxed characters is quicker and easier than in RS?

For the purposes of my question ignore the issues of gameplay mechanics (clicks and buttons), graphics (of course there are differences, but I LIKE RS's graphics), and cost (I'm lucky enough that the difference between ~£5 a month and ~£10 a month doesn't bother me, a possible advantage of being an adult I suppose).

So far my impressions seem to be that RS is a more serious RPG fan's choice (more sandbox, less shiny bells and whistles, but more substance and more difficult in terms of levelling) and WoW is the more traditional gamer's choice (quicker levelling, more role based/limited play, very shiny with lots of bells and whistles, less substance in terms of levelling, i.e. it's not the focus, but a much bigger game world). I'm happy to be corrected on that of course. What do people think?
