Sorry Im bringing up a thread again from November but I like this topic, and I wasnt online then
Yea I agree Runescape has died off horribly. I tried making a clan on there and you have to spend good hours in finding people who actually play. Every since the bot nuke you barely see any life other then the NPC's.
I wish they did a mass overhaul on the game... I can play Wow on my laptop on High settings (not max mind you) and get good graphics out of it, and I max out graphics on Runescape and I lagg out every couple mins and still get crap all fro graphics.
Runescapes graphics have came a long way from what they used to be, but the game is to laggy and sucks... They need more F2P options and more members options.. after you've played for a year you end up doing the same things so often your eyes peel out of there sockets.
The game is to much of a chore from the start and needs work.. But there funding so so far out the window they would need a miracle to pull up again.
Anyways... Jagex has other plans.. there probably going to let the team they have on RS to keep the server on for a few years to come.. probably soon close some servers to budget cutbacks, then let the game die! They need something new, and in this case you cant teach an old dog new tricks... Meaning there not going to get all there players back if they even upgrade the game. Unles they overhaul the game and make RS2 or something... even then I dont think theyll get there players back.
Thx for your time if you read, sorry if this is necropost rofl... Hope you can comment and give feedback to my reply
