    RuneScape Players/ex-players

    Hi all! Amazon Prime comes with a free month of RS membership right now, so I took advantage of it to check back in on my account. I've been playing off and on for 15 years (as they say, "you never quit RuneScape, you just take breaks") and have found that they recently made more skills easily AFK-able so I have been playing at work without it really affecting my productivity. Have any of you played RS? Did you in the past? Any fond memories?

    For me, my friends at school mentioned it to me when I was 11 and didn't even tell me what it was. I made an account after school and completed tutorial island. I had no clue how to add friends or contact my friends from school, but a higher-level player took me under his wing and showed me around Lumbridge. He took me over to the gate to Al Kharid but I didn't even have the 10gp to pass through and I had to beg people on my side of the gate because he had already paid to cross and didn't have any gp left on him to cross back through and help me.

    As I'm now logged in roughly 45 hours per week I assume I'll max my account before too long, and reflecting back on the past 15 years of Summer fun with friends from school on this game (and making friends irl through this game in countries around the world) I'm just filled with nostalgia and I wonder if anyone else here is in the same boat as me.

    I have never played the game but I know a lot of people who have. I got this way with older games like Roller Coaster Tycoon and the original Sims game. It is cool to look back and even play games that have been out for a long time, even if people aren't playing them as much anymore.

    Well the odd thing is that RuneScape is as popular is it's ever been. It had a lull in popularity between 2011 - 2014 but it rivals Final Fantasy 14's player base as of this year.

    I still play! I'm 211 days from my 15-year cape

    I have many fond memories of playing this game as well. I've quit/come back so many times, but lately I'm focused on maxing. I don't get to play as regularly as I used to as I stay pretty busy these days (work, teaching classes after work, baby on the way) but I do LOVE Runescape and will probably play until they decide to flip the switch on all the servers (may it never happen).

    Feel free to add me! My RS name is - Alchytect I'm currently working on the timed event, but I do need someone who knows dg better than me to help me lvl it (dg is one of my least trained skills).

    Ahh nice. I picked up my 15-year Cape on June 4th so i'm just a liiiiitle bit ahead. I understand, life events come along but RuneScape will always find its way back in somehow haha.
    On RS i'm Pugsley11, send me an add as well please.

    Dungeoneering is one of my lowest skills as well...i mostly train it with Skill Lamps and Skill Books haha. I'm on vacation now so you probably won't hear from me for a week or so. I managed to complete the timed event the night before i left on vacation.

    Been working on 99 mining and general moneymaking recently.
