I play RS...almost never, but my main account is "525055". Hit me up, I'm lv74 combat and *used* to be on Hi Scores Leaderboards (I guess it became Member only in the interim of my absence?). I'm probably not gonna be online though, because Guild Wars 2 beta awaits me.

EDIT: I probably will never play RS again; Jagex is just messing up far too much for this game to be any fun. No one is in Wilderness, what's up with that? Not even in Members, aka, pay to play this barf, worlds are people in Wildy. >_>

I first joined when I was 8 or so... It's been on and off ever since. I would play for a few months before stopping for a year or more. I think I was level 83 before I left the last time; I always messed around and never actually got much done in terms of leveling up.

But with the way things are turning out in RS now, I'm honestly not sure if I would ever come back to it.

Hahahahaha oh Runescape. This brings back memories of lower and middle school when I still played that game. The game was so pointless and boring now that I think about it. I spent all my time scamming people by buying items for half price and then selling them for full price. And also farming chicken feathers to sell to my friend. Oh the days when I didn't know a bad game when I saw it.

I used to, but uhh. Nope. :P Not for a looong time. Looking back though, I wish there were more MMOs like it. Everything seems like nothing but "kill X of Y" for twenty hours nowadays. That, or PVP.

I first joined RuneScape in 2006 and still play. I'm currently on a small break from RuneScape, a month ago I was on 24/7. I'm level 200 after the Evolution of Combat, I was level 134 prior to it. I have 4 99's and a total level of around 2024. My username is Erebea.

Jagex has actually been releasing some pretty cool, legitimate game content lately. RuneScape right now is far more tolerable to me than it was years ago. As for the Wilderness comment, it seems that every one who quit RuneScape and says that Jagex is ruining the game brings up the Wilderness as their main argument. I never cared for the Wilderness, a lot of people didn't. RuneScape lost most of its players because most of its players were just uncommited people who came on just to pvp. If you want pvp, just go to Soul Wars or something, though at your low level you wouldn't really get around much.

The latest huge update - the Evolution of Combat - is pretty great. It makes the combat in the game actually fun. Yes. You heard me. fun in RuneScape. The problem currently is that there needs to be a bit more challenge - a reason to go bossing with multiple people; at the moment I can boss at God Wars solo.

Jagex has made mistakes, but this is mainly due to the investor company that has bought out most of Jagex, and corrupted senior staff. As far as game content goes, Jagex is trying, and they have released some pretty great stuff. RuneScape's biggest problem, in my opinion, is the horrible community. The community was much better years ago, but unfortunately most of that good community was filled with nostalgia-fanboys, and they all left as soon as something changed.

I always thought the point of RuneScape was to grind, like many other RPGs, so that's pretty much what I've been doing all this time. I've actually been avoiding playing competetively or interacting with the community since I joined.

Yeah I played Runescape quite a bit but not much anymore and not for quite a while now. Always interested though. It's about the only decent MMO I've been able to manage on my $***3rnet. Afaik I've about done all there is to do on a f2p account aside from a few quests but I think I've just about been everywhere by now at least. Not that the game's over by a longshot.

RS is generally cool but chock full o' ****s. Farming for resources is a bear since it's first come first serve and those @holes are needlessly competitive about it, but if you put the whole world on iggy they're not that bothersome. I should check back in some time soon since there for a while it seemed as though they were doing some different stuff.

I won't lie, sometimes I question why I play. Being honest, I kinda bot. Too cheap for a real bot. But I use a Mouse Recorder to level some mundane skills while I play Zelda.
