Sal's Realm Old School Castle Wars - 04/03/2013

Sal's Realm Old School Castle Wars Event

Team Santafish Vs Squirtle Squad 

Far from the high attendance standards of the Sal's of old, these events hosted roughly a decade ago were the final days of Sal's activity, when we could still pull a small but consistent group of people to attend fun events. This event, an Old School Castle Wars competition between teams Santafish (led by Salmoneus) and it's rivals the Squirtle Squad (led by Micael Fatia) was possibly one of the final few times Salmoneus himself attended an event.
Needless to say we all had a blast. My pictures have been copied and transferred multiple times, so it's hard to find an accurate date of creation for these screenshots. The oldest date associated to them I could find was March 4th of 2013, nearly 10 years ago, but it's potentially older than that.

Man, I miss good and entertaining Castle Wars games. I have such good memories of them with a friend of mine, that it made me sad to be nostalgic about it. :sad: 

Òne thing though... why are the levels so low? Did some update crunch the combat levels in Castle Wars or something? :huh:

Ah you're not going crazy Yuan, you're just missing the context of the event. It is Old School RuneScape, but the actual Old School version of it and not the 'Old School' days aka RuneScape 2. Most participants did not play Old School RuneScape but EoC RuneScape aka RuneScape 3, and thus our Old School levels were super duper low. :tongue:

Oh! That makes sense, because that just confused me, and the RS Wiki article on Castle Wars made no comment to a stat crunch. :xd:

I'm glad you said it, i've been looking at this post for a while thinking....I swear Sal is levelled on Runescape.

You should all come back so we can do more of this stuff.

Last I saw of Sal, he was in the 80ies, but... I mean, Micael certainly was higher than his level on those pictures. :xd:

I wonder if Sal ever made it to level 90. :laugh:
And yup, I was maxed combat, or at least was passed as maxed combat in 2013. I legit have no clue if they introduced more levels or skills.

Ah I wish that was possible. I am aware it's against the RuneScape rules, so maybe I shouldn't have done it... but it just felt like such a gigantic waste to never use a perfectly fine account again and the result of over a decade of dedicated gaming. I gave it away to an online friend a long time ago. I haven't had contact with him in forever, but even if I had it just wouldn't feel right to get it back now (assuming he didn't get the account banned or something of the sort) or recovering it - again assuming I could even recover it to begin with, I remember next to nothing about it. For all purposes it's no longer mine, regardless of the moral validity of what I did when I gave it away.
To play again I'd have to start from zero, and I really do lack the motivation. Sal's suddenly being revived with a burst of activity and going back to the levels of 2006 is literally the only thing that could bring me back to the game at this point, in a new account.

Honestly the CC is popping right now.

Use runelite, use the optimal quest guide helper.

Set yourself a goal of 24 hours to see how far you can get.

I reckon you'll be surprised at far you get.

I'll even fund you 10m.

These are my stats after 576 hours, i've got like 5 quests left to complete for the cape.

The link leads nowhere to me. But yeah I appreciate the incentive Fatalysm, but my desire to play is long gone. Like I said it'd require a miracle like these forums reviving for me to even consider coming back.
I'm happy to know you made your way back and are having fun though.
