Gradia said:I played RS for like, 1-2 years. I was HEAVILY into it, I loved it. My username was Guaradia (102), and I had like, 3 pures I used to play on. PKing is VERY fun, certainly when you have a few friends over, playing as well. But I have quit, and no, I won't give you free stuff.
To all the people who say its a shitty, its friggin not. It doesn't have sharp graphics like WoW, or any other MMORPG out there, but that doesn't automaticly make it a crap game. There is alot of things to do in this, its just so much fun. Bored training skills? You can go pking, or to castle wars, or go do some quests.. Through the day, there is around 130k OF PEOPLE PLAYING. That is ALOT. More then any other MMORPG I've seen. This game gets updated nearly every week, which either is a new quest (All quests have storylines) minor(bug fix -.-)/major(New town or something) update.
The one thing I can't tolerate is people dissing this game, because of the graphics. Well guess what? EXCELLENT GRAPHICS, PLUS CRAPPY GAMEPLAY = CRAPPY GAME. (FFX-2 PlX)
You sucked ;0It sucked.
The gameplay is...well, it gets old. Fast.
Lmfao, and what exactly do you do in every other MMORPG? Most MMORPG's I've played, all you do is level up... Wow, funThere's nothing interesting about it - killing stuff is boring after the first few times.
Hey, least its not like in most other MMORPG's where you basically just get assigned to kill # number of monstersQuests are boring(at least the beginning ones - but if the first quests you can do don't hold my interest, why keep playing until I can get better ones?).
Oh too bad, PKing on this game is probably the best part of it...PKing isn't my style.
Turn your public/privite chat to friends, omg, problem solved.The people who play tend to be n00bs
To be quite honest...as I said above, Runescape-style RPGs aren't my thing(translationon't look for any more replies by me in this topic). But it's free, and you get what you pay for. Although the horrible community of people who play it would turn me off of ANY game like it.Gradia said:You sucked ;0
No, YOU sucked :O. But seriously, CHEAP FLAME!
Lmfao, and what exactly do you do in every other MMORPG? Most MMORPG's I've played, all you do is level up... Wow, fun
Multi-task is your friend
Multi-task? What's that supposed to mean? Go after several differnt goals at once? Do something else while mindlessly leveling up?
Hey, least its not like in most other MMORPG's where you basically just get assigned to kill # number of monsters
I should probably mention this...aside from Runescape, the only other things I've played that might qualify as MMORPGs are the Kingdom of Loathing, Teh Yard, and Generia. They're all awesome, and they're all frame/text-based. Why do I like them more than the typical MMORPG? Simple, really. You get fun adventure text, such as this:
"You're fighting a lihc
This is a lihc. A lihc is the European version of the chupacabra. Which is Spanish for "Goatsucker." Trust me, it's a lot more menacing than it sounds. Fear the goatsucker."
and the best item description ever:
This is a handful of soft feathers from the legendary Phonics. With the advent of instant messaging, the great bird is said to have spontaneously combusted. Legend tells that the Phonics will one day be reborn, and that the rivers will run red with the blood of those who cannot spell."
So although it's still leveling up and questing over and over, you get to read humorous enough text that you want to keep playing, and don't mind doing the same thing over and over QUITE as much. Not only that, but things go faster in general. Leveling up doesn't take up hours of time. It's hard to explain, really. I think it's just a matter of what different people like.
Oh, and the people at the RPGs I like to play are smarter and cooler than others, and the dumb ones are riduled enough to go away. Imagine an online RPG filled with people like Ed, Jynxo, I_D, etc. ...I'll stop before this becomes an essay about why I love the RPGs I do XD But yeah, I think it's just because I'm not fond of the "tradtional" MMORPG.
Oh too bad, PKing on this game is probably the best part of it...
It really is too bad that, the way you put it, PKing is the ONLY way to have fun.
Turn your public/privite chat to friends, omg, problem solved.
Muting everyone helps. However, I constantly faield to find anyone smart and respectful enough to be put on a friends list.
P2W said:Whenever I try to play RS, I get bored after the first month or so. It's fun at times when you have things to do, quests to complete and all that but when it comes to leveling in RS, it ranks high in "Most Boring games of the decade"
Your Strength is 55. You have full Rune, Rune Scim and Diamond Ammy (I'm speaking F2P here, not all of us have credit cards.) You're fighting Lesser Demons at Karamja. Still, it takes about a decade or so to even level once. And since Lessers tend to hit very high, the food is a big issue. First, the boring moment of fighting the shitty Demon, then the even more boring moment of fishing the stuff to eat (And cooking it too!) then repeat. After awhile, it get's boring.
The Graphics aren't the best, allthough it looks very good these days. (Compared to RSC)
It tends to lag quite alot on slow computers.
Servers are often packed.
You do everything with your mouse (Which is one of the reasons I choose WoW over RS)
Noobs are infesting large MMORPG's these days. (Since WoW costs money, it doesn't get as packed with noobs as RS, which is free)
Mining, woodcutting, basicly all the gathering skills, are in the top of my list when it comes to boring stuff to do.
Mining... (Get my point?)
To sum it up, RuneScape is a fun game if you can pay the monthly fee to be a member (I've been that once, that's fun) but is a really boring game when you're playing F2P. After awhile in F2P, you know exactly everything and Jagex is never updating F2P, just members so there's almost never anything new coming to the game.
I give RuneScape a 5 because of partial boredom, partial fun.
NOTE: I wrote this very, very, very late (3am!) so half of it might just be blubberish that I wrote half-sleeping.
