    I vaguely remember playing this in high school, seemed decent for a free MMORPG. May try playing it again once my exams are over.

    I remember when I used to play Runescape. Then WoW happened.

    I played for a couple years, and looking back... I can say those years have been wasted [​IMG]

    I think the last thing I remember about Runescape is buying 80k worth of Body runes. I should still have 'em. I calculated all the number of times I'd need to cast a spell (I forget which one) to get to like lvl 74 Magic. I think I got through a couple of thousand castings before I quit.

    My friend just sent me an Email with some pretty promising information. I might just start playing again if this comes about.

    Hi everyone,

    As we near the end of another big year for Jagex, I feel very proud and truly amazed at what we’ve achieved together since RuneScape was conceived a decade ago. Together we’ve been part of the growth of one of the biggest free games in the world, not to mention the best, most vibrant online community in history. The Jagex family has grown to well over 400, we’ve picked up a number of Guinness World Records along the way (and counting), and for the second year running we’ve won the Golden Joystick Awards as best UK developer. This is all thanks to you, the players.

    As you know, we try to keep our updates close to our chest, so that you will be pleasantly surprised; however, I can promise you that 2011 will be one of our most exciting update years ever.

    When considering big game-changing decisions, it’s always with our players’ ultimate game experience firmly in mind; your feedback helps shape our decisions and, ultimately, the fun entertainment we produce. Creating content that you enjoy and appreciate is what drives our passionate teams. We regularly listen to you on the fan sites, our forums, in game and, for the first time ever, face to face at our live player celebration: RuneFest 2010. Your voice counts hugely, because we know you are as passionate about playing RuneScape as we are about making it.

    It’s never lost on me what an incredible privilege it is to be able to serve such a wonderful community as well as the incredible team at Jagex. I’ve had an astonishing time over the past two years that I’ve been CEO of Jagex and, during that time, have had to make some rather difficult decisions. Today, however, I’d like to ask every one of our players, past and present, for your help in making one of the biggest decisions regarding the future of RuneScape...

    I regularly hear from both the community and the Jagex team that we should reintroduce free trade and the excitement of the old Wilderness, warts and all. As you know, we removed free trade and the Wilderness in 2007 to combat botting, gold farming and item scamming. Since then, we have produced new content that provides comparable gameplay and mechanics to allow increased trade limits with long-term friends; however, we are still regularly being told that something is missing from the 'good old days' of RuneScape.

    We’ve been shutting down bot-makers all around the world and prosecuting people for stealing accounts, and we’ve evolved our systems to quickly detect cheating; however, we will have to accept that we will never completely eradicate cheating so long as there is an incentive and method to do so. Bringing back free trade and the original Wilderness will certainly make this a bigger issue than it is today, though I can pledge that we will never stop trying to combat it.

    So, the big question is, are the passionate voices we hear on this topic truly representative of the majority of the player community or just a rather vocal minority? Do you want to see a return of free trade and the original Wilderness? If the vast majority of our players vote in favour of it, then we will do exactly that.

    Please tell us what you think by visiting this page and registering your vote. As ever, we’ll read your feedback and listen to your thoughts and opinions, so please do feel free to discuss and debate this on the forums.

    In the meantime, have a wonderful holiday season and thank you for a fantastic 2010. I look forward to celebrating ten years of RuneScape with you in January.

    Have fun!

    Take care,
    Mark Gerhard[/p]

    Old wilderness was good but scary.
    People would shoot arrows at you before you could even get in.
    And the trading limit is stupid.
    It would be hard trading everything over to another account.

    Wasn't too fond of the old wildy, just made quite a few quests annoying. I mean the competitive part wasn't too bad but people could just always lay down some lame combos (like the ancient ice magic freezing spell and a dragon dagger) and ambush you. I was much more of a fan of the other PvP stuff like Castle Wars. Castle Wars fucking rocked.

    Runescape is and will stay a popular mmorpg. Now, to defend against the hating:
    -T3H GRAFIX SUXKCSXSXS! OMOAFAGAFAOULOLOLO.
    Yeah, they do. But, they have improved a lot over time [​IMG] The animations aren't the best either. Though, I'm not sure, but iirc java is limiting their graphics alot :/
    -OMG WoW IS WEY BETT3R!? OMGOLOLOL
    Yeah, might be, played it once. Didn't really like the style... Meh (and I don't want to get addicted xD)
    And also, it's alot more expensive. (even when you're member.
    -RS SUX
    Errr... yeah, good for you. You sux.
    -IT COSTSZ MONEIGH.
    No it does not. yes there is members. It kinda multiplies what you can do by.. 20x? for 5 euro a month?
    That's way cheaper than most mmorpgs...
    -The music sucks.
    Totally agreed. The sounds, the music. It's horrible imo xD I always play my own music while playing rs.
    But overall, it's still a great game. It has a pretty nice community (well, on the members worlds that is >.> FREE DRAGON PLOX in free worlds is 1st, strange. And 2nd wtf.)
    Though, on members there still are spoiled 10 year old kids with 'super armour' (initiate for example XD white (g) ) lol
    Whatever...
    The game is fun, pretty challenging. But most of all, time consuming xD
    It's just a matter of preferences really :/
