Servers were always filling up

  • I, sadly buy RS gold, missed out on the original Runescape, joining in 2004 when Runescape two went live (which brought 3D graphics and other substantial upgrades)back when I was a teenager in school. I don't even want to learn the number of hours myself and friends lost to Runescape across multiple accounts -- it'd be well in the thousands.

    The beauty of Runescape at that time was the very low system requirements and incredibly addictive grind-like gameplay. The MMORPG makes full use of a power system which requires experience points (EXP) to rise in levelsup to a total of 99 in each ability. Skills cover many areas, from battle to prayer, wood cutting into fishing, and smithing to crafting. There was enough content to keep all of us entertained, no matter which skill you preferred.

    The neighborhood was massive. Servers were always filling up and mini-games had more than enough players for several rounds to be appreciated. You could even hang out with different players and simply discuss a load of nonsense whilst spending hours at a time mining iron for that succulent 100,000 gold coin to get 1,000 units of ore commerce. We appreciated PK'ing (player killing), questing (at times), and general action grinding to find out who'd be among the first to hit 99 at a skill.

    You can set up a new account called"magicdong400xXx" because that is the limitation of adolescent creativity, grind resources, develop battle skills adhering to a professional"pure" PK manual, make money, purchase cool-looking equipment (black trimmed addy armor anybody?) , then drop it in the jungle. Rinse and repeat, and meant making a new account because we wanted to check out new strategies (that sucked).

    In my surprise, Runescape is still going strong and there's even a mobile variant on the way. It is drawing tens of thousands of players each and every day with servers carrying hundreds of people.So I logged in and selected a server to join.

    It was hard to believe I actually had to put in a customer to play Runescape. This was unheard of, particularly thinking about the fact that we only had Internet Explorer and Firefox at our disposals back from the afternoon to get the match. But boy has this match evolved. It is no longer the adorable Java game with a poor resolution and clunky UI. There's full-screen mode RuneScape goldwith some excellent visuals for what's essentially a browser match.

    It was actually incredibly confusing at first. What did I last do all those years ago? What do I do today? Exactly what the hell is Solomon's General Store?!
