I'll vote yes just for the sake of it.

The wilderness (wildy) was an open pvp/full loot area that took up a big part of the map.

Holy shit...

I mean, it's still a kids game, but damn. If they do this it will bring back some good memories. That's absolutely awesome. I really didn't expect them to do that. The poll results are hilarious, 90% in favor of restoring things as they were.

I logged in just to vote yes a week back. Haven't played the game in almost three years.

I probably wouldn't play again.. Played RuneScape for almost six years and the game got stale once they took the wildy out.. among the other things they did in their seemingly endless spree of dumb ideas.

Though even if they do bring it back, it'll probably be a half-hearted attempt and it won't be nearly as exciting as it used to be because of all the carebear options that are in the game currently. The audience is drastically different, and there are more options for PvP that are less risky. It just won't be the same as when the wildy was the main PvP area, and the only PvP area to get rewards from by risking something in return.

I voted yes too on some accounts, mainly for my old clan. People are botting it up anyway...

Curious, anyone from old RS clans here? ZF, DS, Gladz myself (and some minor ones you probably haven't heard of).

I was in some big clans around the time that the gam where you get points and turn it into exp was popular. Can't remember what the name of the clan was or the mini game though.

Edit: Pest control was the game.

I was in BlacKnights for awhile, a little bit of Divine Forces too. Not sure if you'd call DF "old" (I don't).

Rs was my first mmo and I quit when they added their bullshit downgrades. Already started again when I heard the news. I’m going to enjoy pking noobs, dropping their shit in a random location, tell them where it is, and see if they get there before the newbs see the copious amounts of shit on the ground and go for it. Best memories of any mmo.

That is a long long time ago and I am sure you didn't even play this version, please shut the fuck up.


I voted yes too and I will resub if they ever bring it back and I hope it will be as close as the era of wildy in 2006. As for my clan clan I used to be in RSD.


Can't wait to do some mage bank PK!

RS name? I used to be in Heart Unit too, or at least I scouted their worlds when I worked on my last defence levels+some ranged. DF aren't really that old, but they held #1 for a while when tons of my friendlist went there after DS died so.

Good old times, I really hope they will bring it back.

I still have my 99 prayer to get ( 96 prayer sitting in my bank)

And I need 9 more levels of summoning :(

A lot of things changed from what I heard...the new way to make cash easily is to get to 85 dung and kill frost dragons ;) 2M/h

I still have a Runescape account, hit level 121... I just couldn't get back into it not even being able to give a friend anything, just loan stuff out. It really bothered me. If they remove the trade limit, that alone will make it better than most MMOs out there.

I'm still stuck in EvE though, since I'm a sci-fi geek I don't think it's going away soon.

Yeah that fucking trade limit is really dumb but like Mod Mark said now they have the technology to find bots and they have a better plan for the war against RWT.

That’s just the load of shit Jagex usually peddles. Their “new technology” is just connecting user accounts with email accounts, so gold farmers can’t just make programs that constantly make new bot accounts, and so it’s easier to track bots. The tech always existed but jagex thought they would save more money by just removing the wilderness and free trade as apposed to making an entire new system for the game. They were wrong and it cost them dearly in subscriptions and still is.

Yeah I agree and I am not even sure they have a proper system in place to detect bots...I know a lot of people who power leveled some skills and it got reset haha. Anyway I only care about the game cuz I played for so long but this is my last attempt at trying to come back into the game, I hope they pull something nice out of this update.

They had a choice, but instead chose a generic, stupid, pop culture reference name.


What was the process here, I wonder.


1) Gandalf TheGray - ARGH!
2) Gandalf TheGrey - GRRR
3) Gandalf TheWhite - shitballs!
4) Darth Maul - shit, it's taken.
5) Luke Skywalker - DAMMIT!
6) Captain Kirk - taken too?!
7) James Kirk - oh come on!
8) Britney Spears - that too?!

Fuck it, we're getting gandalf..

1) Gandalf1 - taken
2) Gandalf2 - taken
...) Gandalf[3-74320] - taken

OH MY GOD, 74321 is free!! YES!! Now I can go hang out with all the other Gandalfs!

Was my first mmorpg and some of the best memories I have playing them. Started around 2002 and stopped playing around 2006-07 due to the wildy/RWT change that utterly fucked the game. On rsc I was one of the first pures and it was great when people would run when you whipped out your r2h weapon. Made alot of money selling p-hats and shit on that game, but I won't ever go back. Luck/chance is too big of a factor.

It was a pretty shitty game but you gotta say, it had one of the most detailed NPCs in any game. Nearly all NPC's were completely unique and well placed in a detailed world and so it really felt like a complete lively world.

Plus the quests were superb if you ask me. Other mmorpgs need to take heed and do some things Jagex did. Barrows runs were fun, as well as the minigames. Runescape is more sandbox than Darkfall is sadly. Need to make a runescape with good graphics and combat like Darkfall and I'd play it.

And whoever asked, no it wasnt heart unit. I did use my friends HU account to get the worlds though (I was like level 98 at the time).
I quit back in 06 when they fucked it up but kept getting on to merch. Went from 13m to 140m now. The grand exchange is seriously the easiest, laziest way to merch.

Playing the market in runescape was the fucking best with hundreds of people in every major eastern town doing public chat trades where you would run over to certain parts of the city and watch their wts/wtb text above their characters.

If I didn't get hacked last year and lost my blue phat some how (stopped playing in 2006... logged in every few months since), I would probably consider going back into runescape as a secondary game.

Though there were so many childish changes to the game since I quit and the average player age was nearly cut in half... I prolly would never go back to the game even if I still had that old hat.

I fell for that one :(.

Really Im surprised so many people here were interested in runescape so much. The grind and combat was god aweful.

Really the npc system and world were brilliant. The best thing was also that it had a working economy, no matter how fucked due to raw materials being more expensive than the finish product but it worked well enough but I honestly didnt expect Forumfall out of all forums to feel nostalgic about it.

Agreed. I ran a clan called BoS for a while, expertized in small scale battles, 10 v 10, 20s and 30s mostly. Really good group for that but the wild was a bit of a bitch to PK in for smaller clans because the bigger ones ran the place. Wars were fun though.

I logged on just to vote yes even though bringing it back probably wouldn't make me return. It'd have to get a modern-age graphic revamp (actual revamp, new engine and everything not the crap they do to it today) and the movement system would have to be totally changed from the click system they have always had. I pretty much wouldn't go back under any circumstances but that'd be a start.

EDIT: Also I had 8 santas that I dueled away when I was planning on quitting, that also has a lot to do with never going back. All of that and the fact that it's a game mainly for 8 year olds now.

That is one great thing about RS. Their quest aren't "Go kill 20 of these" or "Collect 30 of this". They are very detailed, rewarding and interesting. They have interesting plots and nearly every new one they add comes along with a new chunk of map to explore.

Yeah the Quest are awesome but I can't stand doing more than 2-3 a month haha I rather go PK unless the quest is important for gear and shit like that.


Small scale PVP was really good but at lot riskier if you would fall into a large group roaming the wild.


I can't wait for the update, I hope they will find a way to balance everything out.

It's the perfect MMO. It's easy to play, easy to understand, and makes the perfect Gateway MMO. I bet 90% of the (13-25 year old) people who play MMO's today got started out on Runescape.

I'd say they are about the same in the sandbox department. Runescape has more content as it should. Before the wilderness came out, the game lack content and play like DFO as far as character development is concerned. When they added pures, I had to reroll because I went from level 40 or something to level 80 :lmao:

I did play it, doesn't matter if you believe me or not. Might this convince you?

It was full ffa PvP, then it was FFA PvP within 5 levels, then you could flag yourself for PvP or Non-PvP up to 3 times, then wilderness was added.

It wasn't open pvp everywhere. I started when there was only one server and only 50-70 people on at any given time before there was even a right click option and lumby was always a safe zone until you got close to the cabbage field. Also, part of varock was a partial safe zone since the overpowered guards(or they were back then) would kick your ass if you tried to attack anyone in varock square.

I think the game hit it’s prime in late 05 to early 06.

Yeah it wasn't everywhere but it wasn't just one zone in particular like the wilderness, still most of the map was open pvp.

Yeah RS really got a population boom with the release of RS2 but it only got really big around 05-06.

Well, I came back to it for about a month, back in September. My good computer was still in Florida, didn't have much to choose from for gaming options. Mostly did a few quests and dungeoneering. I managed to do Nomad's requiem, that was a bitch and a half.

didn't play before that, according to the log, for 932 days.

There was in fact open PvP even in Lumby the first day of release. Not that I played then.

And yes Death's Chill, I had to sift through like 300 names to dig it up, a better reaction would've been nicer of you. :(

I don't remember that and I've played since the very beginning. You sure you're not thinking about right where the goblins were, right outside of lumby, close to the shop?


No, my little nephew is using a bot in the game.

I think he meant the mass gold farmers using bots to take up every decent resource nod.

Gandalf74321. Made it when I was a 12 year old LOTR nerd.

My first RS acount was Gandalfj. Made it in like August 2001. I stopped playing it after it got hacked and repeatedly banned. It's on last chance so I dont really use it much anymore. My brother still plays RS though. He is a level 125 named Deity. Any of you are free to try to pk him when they bring back the wildy.

Is Tzacharu original enough for you?


Clear improvement :)
