Remember that easter item that turned you into an egg? Me and a couple of friends used to pretend that a witch had turned us into eggs and asked newer players to save us. I don't remember why, it's been around 10 years. Good times though.

/v/ has it's very own private server.
They don't have all the quests working but it's better than giving Jagex money.
I think they're migrating servers right now though so it might be a big laggy.

A few bugs that get sorted quickly, the only thing missing from the game is the majority of p2p quests and a few mini games. since theirs so much else to do it doesn't really matter.

The biggest drawback can be the appointment of young staff.

A few times throughout my rs career I quit to play rsps.

I still log in occassionally and pay for membership too after getting that 10 year cape a couple years back.

I tried playing RS3 but it's such a mess.
The interface is extremely confusing and you get bombarded with windows. RS2 had a really nice and simple interface with everything being on the right and you didn't have to stop playing to access it, I don't know why they thought a change was necessary.
>>
I would probably still play but the runescape world is so damn empty, and full places everywhere was one of the main things which made the game so great in the first place

How many people are playing the original RS now

>>281035131
I have notebooks completely filled with numbers and to do lists for runescape that I would make in class. I would calculate how many flax i would need to spin or how many tuna potatoes i could make to get x amount of gp.

I wouldn't of had it any other way.

There's still a decent amount of people playing rs3 nowadays, however, its a totally different game and because of this, a TON of pre-eoc content is utterly dead and forgotten. I really would like to play osrs but i don't have anywhere near the time or patience to level up a new character, so i play rs3 instead.

Come try it out, right now theres a 2 week F2P trial going on, with full F2P coming in the very near future.
Its pretty cool, its like from 2007 but with some new content that fits the spirit and style of 2007 era RS. I think I would describe OSRS like if Jagex never got rid of the wildy, free trade, and never added the HD update. It feels like a different direction that the game could've taken in an alternate universe, and this second there are around 30k players on.

That's the beauty of runescape though. There wasn't any story or narrative dictating the kind of player you needed to be to enjoy the game. It truly felt like a vast and open world and that you could do anything you wanted at any time. Whether that is being a mong at the gnomeball field or grinding your skills to get 99s. Its an experience I've never had in any other game besides rs, its truly unique on that regard.

Not really. Rs has always had a decent backstory if you bothered to read about it, or if you actually read betrayal at falador lol.

Recently they have kind of shoehorned the gods in more than they should have in my opinion. Zamoral, saradomin, and guthix always seemed like actual gods to me. There was mystery surrounding them and we were never 100% sure who they were or what they were capable of. The god wars dungeon added to this as well.

Nowadays all of the gods are just hanging out on the surface world and literally killing each other.

another point, if you think about it all the minigames would be fun, co-operative and if played enough would have cosmetic rewards.

The end is as unsatisfying as you'd expect.

The new city has a lot of content sure, but it makes skills even easier to train, and also it's hideous. Make's me sad that the new main "hub" of the game is a stark white empty void in the sky, while all the old cities with their charm are pretty much empty.

While Guthix Sleeps was the toppest of top tier in terms of quests. Underground Pass is still pretty good though.
>>
>>281047331
>>281043557

I feel the reason for that, for me at least, was that I did a LOT of just dicking around. The only time I really trained toward something was because I needed a skill for a quest or I just really wanted to wear some better gear.

Grinding was less important than running around, exploring, playing minigames or whatever.

Also, factor in that training now you probably know what you're doing to maximize xp gain, movement is much easier with free teleports to pretty much goddamn anywhere, and most all skills can be done with a "Make X" option now (the one thing I don't really have a problem with, too much clicking was a bit of a pain in the ass)

What is the comfiest area?

>>281047470

Underground Pass was goddamn great. For me it ties with Desert Treasure with best of the old quests.

Though I admit I rather liked While Guthix Sleeps and Nomad's Requiem too. Basically I guess I like any quest that was challenging to me when I played it.

>>281034373
The GE murdered any sense of community that the game had. No longer would anyone haggle for items, or have to actually work to sell or buy items. No meeting new people and getting crafter contacts.
Prices dropped with the GE being added, since it became really easy for people to see the prices of items. Monkfish high? SELL SELL SELL. Need to buy something? Just go to the GE which was just one giant fucking store and buy it for the cheapest fucking price offered.
Then there were the fucking merchers who destroyed the damn economy.
The GE was one of the worst things to happen to Runescape and was one of the signs that Jagex wanted the game to be more like WoW.

For me it was actually Dark Warrior's fortress, since that's where my clan's "headquarters" was. Just sitting around, waiting to see if there was a good fight.

There usually wasn't, and we were awful at fighting. But it comfy in a way. It felt safe in the building with your clan friends in the middle of the dangerous wilderness, even though you really weren't all that safe, and that one asshole probably would wind up teamkilling you with ice burst.

Barring that, I really liked the Tree Gnome Stronghold.

What did you think of the bullshit laser-puzzle-while-being-eaten-by-shades thing in Mourning Ends Part 2?

On a completely different note: Anyone know if the old developers of Runescape made guidelines for whoever took over now in terms of lore? I actually kind of like how Zaros was handled for the most part in the recent quest thing, considering all the mystery and suspense they had with his character up until this point. I wonder if that was the work of new writers, or did the people who originally made the lore have a hand in it somehow.

There really aren't any.
Most of the private servers are those with like 100000x exp rates and they give you free dragon shit as soon as you log in.

/v/scape is one of the few somewhat populated runescape servers with reasonable rates and don't hold your hand with care packages.
>>
>>281053362
>garbage misinformation
Jagex shill detected. Bonds are a form of RWT because it allows you to purchase in-game money for real money. They're not "ONLY for membership" like you seem to think. Your shitty private-server-tier game ran by Jagex will soon be halfway to being P2W.

>they're adding shit the players vote on
Does it matter whether or not the players are voting for it? It's still being added and it's still going to ruin the game. The community currently seems to want to turn the game into RS2 in 2011-2012, but I'm sure they won't stop there; just as they didn't stop at getting RS2 in 2007 with some minor quality of life additions because the nostalgia wore off after a while. Basically they just want RS3 but without the ability to use EoC.

Your game is going to shit and the community is literally Reddit.

You don't seem to understand. Runescape was just a sandbox. It was the people that made runescape great, and all those people left after they turned that sandbox into another WoW wannabe.

07 is not "old school" runescape, because just undoing the major fuckups does not bring back the sense of community old rs had.

Yes. I know this is the Internet and 4chan of all places, and everyone loves to say everything is shit but just look at this thread. Everyone here had solid bros they remember.
RS had no fast travel, you had to walk everywhere, so did everyone else. It was common to start conversations with people going the same way as you, or at least say hello to people passing you.
There was no auction house so in order to get what you needed you had to socialize with the merchants and crafters. It was normal to try and haggle on item prices and you could end up rich just buying and selling things to people. No mater what you did everything in the game had you socializing with people and forming relationships.

Every community has its assholes and edgy teens but if I had to spend the rest of my life with one group of people, it would be all the friends I made on RS.

Yes. With both my school friends and the people I met through Runescape, we spent hundreds of hours playing that game and just having a good time.

I remember going to a trade world and trading some bullshit item like charcoal to nonmembers for their trimmed rune shit and bucket helmets. Got a few, too. They'd see the item and think it was rare, thus valuable.
I loved that aspect of the game where people could just massively jew and cheat you.
>>
>>281060578
Proper F2P isn't in yet. Will be soon. The servers are there for people who want to play the game as a F2P player for now, but right now is restricted to members only.

Makes a ton of sense, right? But hey, F2P is coming very, very soon, so just hang tight.
>>
>>281060578
That's Jewgex's way of saying hello.

There are no f2p servers for 07scape, just a trial for oldies who haven't played in awhile.
Regular Runescape has F2P worlds if you have the stomach for it though.

>>281058836
I know. I will always have a soft spot for the beautiful memories of runescape.

I was so young. My mother saw the joy in me playing, she eventually bought me membership subscription. But what left a strong mark on me was that she also gave me CD's to listen to while playing, and particularly The Carpenters albums. I would listen to them all the time while grinding, training, having good and bad times. I can remember that one day I logged in and found myself stripped and hacked... my mother sympathized for me.
Any track by The Carpenters leads me to reminisce rs memories.

So I hope all of you have come to the bitter realization that all MMOs henceforth from now will almost always be shit. And not just because devs now pander to the largest possible demographic for a quick cash-in, but also due to the fact that nobody will ever focus on the social aspect of the MMO ever again.
What we experienced in our late 90's/early 2000's fledgling MMOs will most likely never be experienced by other MMO players, or players of any genre, or at least, not to the degree or magnitude that we were so fortunate to receive.
I know not whether to pity the millennials for being ignorant to the pleasure of anonymous virtual cooperation, or to envy them for never having to fill the void that is created when it goes away.

I should not come to these threads. Makes me existential.

I absolutely loved the Grand Exchange, though it undoubtedly damaged trading.
Couple of years ago I was playing again and tried having a bank sale. No one knew what I was talking about.
Broke my heart.

If you ever see a bank sale, hit that shit up, niggas selling items for pocket change.

You ever see end of eva? Yeah, pretty much that.

A couple years back jagex started going to old player accounts and deleting their names if they didn't log in any more so new players could get them

Anyone remember this? The sci-fi runescape that almost was? Or maybe stellar dawn, the reincarnation years later that mysteriously died again?

I remember hearing all the rumors about what the game was going to be like and i was so hyped for it, just to have my dreams crushed over the course of its long death.

Too bad there's no "last online x days ago" think for your friends, that would really get this feeling train going.

Damn, I don't remember the glory day numbers, but it looks like Runescape isn't going anywhere for a while.

Yeah, it was hyped to no end and they kept announcing and cancelling it until everyone forgot about Stellar Dawn. I think there's even some pre-alpha gameplay on youtube.

>>281063812
Pretty much any other sandbox mmo out there. Runescape was a simplified Ultima clone, so any game that mentions Ultima as an inspiration should have a very similar skill system.
>>
>>281063812
I don't think I've ever seen it done. And if I have it wasn't executed successfully because I don't remember it.
Mortal Online does it, I think, but that game is needlessly tedious, and I also think it has some form of paywall iirc.

>>281063452
It's nothing like it used to be but it's still going pretty decently.

Honestly it wouldn't be so bad in game if they just condensed the worlds, that way it'd be more populated on each world.
Then it'd be back to 1k+ people in most worlds as opposed to the 400 players in every world except trading realms like it is now.

>>281055406
Peak is usually 50-60 per day, highest we've had is 100+. It's been around for almost a year too so Jagex won't suddenly shut it down after you've spent a lot of time in it. If you wanna give it a try be aware that we had to move servers recently so we're a bit unstable, but it should clear up in a week or so.
