Does anyone still play?

Recommended Posts

So, seems strange to ask this on a RuneScape fan site but, does anyone still actively play?

What version, if so?

I tried to give OSRS a go personally but after the amount of time that I had put into my account back in the day - I can never see myself starting again.

I still play RuneScape 3 maybe three hours a week. I do not play Old School for the reason you note, and I get a “been there, done that” feeling with the stuff I actually did in 2005-07. I also dislike some of the changes they’ve made in old school. The only thing that might bring me back is the clan scene, but I don’t know anyone in a clan anymore.

I sort of wanted to go back to Old School, but I quickly realised that I had only played Old School RuneScape, and besides trying the start of RuneScape 3, I do not want to level a whole new account again. I do not have interest in that.

 

...and quite frankly, RuneScape 3 is not a good enough game to warrant my time to be something I focus on. At least with Old School, I could have lazily played on a different monitor, but.. yeah. RuneScape 3 does not have much of an appeal to me, sadly. :sad:

To be honest, I did give RS3 a go for a while but there is so much to learn again, it's like I have fallen too far behind. (Albeit that I did make the effort to achieve 99 Archeology & 99 Divination)

Sounds like OSRS has gone very much the same way!

Yep, completely with you there. It's a whole different ball game in the gaming scene these days! 

 

Far too easy to to jump into Warzone on PS5.

I renew a couple times a year, and it's usually OSRS that sucks me in. Just too much has changed in in RS3 for me to be captivated by it, and my old achievements feel devalued when I open 2 free keys and get 200k exp for doing nothing.

Ugh, I know that feeling! So much hard work for nothing! 

Have you been doing anything specific on OSRS? Like PKing? Or is that even still a thing?

I pop in on RS3 sometimes for my quarterly "old man yells at cloud" where I complain about how much has changed

Ironically, I watched a tile challenge series on Youtube about OSRS, and that seemed amazingly fun, so on one level, I would like to off-monitor play OSRS, but.. I do not see the joy of beginning again from scratch. I have too many great memories attached to the first account. 

Oh well. :tongue:

I feel like a lot of people log in now and again just to check on their account and see how things look... Imagine if it was timed correctly and suddenly it was busy again, Sal's clan chat was full, the forums suddenly became active..... Ah, I can but dream!

I love how everyone knows how much time and effort they have put into an account and just know that they never will be able to move on from that account...

Free time is certainly more valuable as we all grow older!
