Maybe it's just too easy, and too competitive so it attracts all the dickheads (I'll keep using that as long as I can! Mwahaha!), unlike other FIORPGs which can have players actually.. roleplaying.

... And Kingdom of Loathing beats all others! *then cries because she kinda misses Equinox*

Very few MMORPGs have any roleplaying at all.

Anyway, a community not made up of illiterate prepubescent player killers would do Runescape a big favor. So would being able to communicate, since I'm convinced that they just censored the entire dictionary. Heck, dictionary itself is probably censored since it has "dic" in it.

Furthermore, it's missing the cooperative side that MMORPGs can benefit from. Other players are very rarely allies, typically acting as annoyances or outright enemies. In essence, RuneScape is a free singleplayer RPG without a storyline or direction that happens to require an internet connection, beg for money, and subject you to all of the sundry jerks the internet has to offer.

It was easier for me to bypass the filter with a real swearword than it was to get a harmless word past it. Go figure. :P

You don't want to hear of the amount of players I teamed up with, because I gave them armor or a sword. I have several fans now. It can get annoying, yes, but sometimes its nice to be able to talk to people.

Eldibs, I'm sorry I didn't show up last night. I was happily composing some music, until I looked at the clock and saw it was already 19:00 (gmt). Then I logged in, but you already went. Until next sunday I suppose we can't meet again.

No, not saturday, that's why i said sunday. I give a concert with some old-peoples orchestra in some end-of-the-world town. The music we play (Dvoraks 8th symphony) is fun, though. The concert will start at 15:30 GMT and by the time I will come back, i won't have the energy nor the time to play Runescape.

Yeah, but they take up system resources, and you have to log in to them. Here, I auto-login.

... that's not the best argument I've ever heard, against them.

You can set them up to remember you, so all you have to do, is click a single button to be logged in. Even less time-consuming than browsing to this forum.

I hate IM things. to me its all like MSN, which I hate. all chatting things, which I hate (Although chatting in Runescape is just the same, but, that's different).

I just came across a method mining huge amounts of experience in a short time. When you have about mining level 46-47, go get an adamantite pickaxe (if you don't have one already) and start mining iron. It will go fast, instead of coal whih goes slowly. I'm now level 49, and in 1 hour I'm almost level 50.

Always happens when I'm following someone. I remember it was a good source of comic relief in our little party (AA, Wise and me).

While an IM is convenient, we would be obligated to be online all of us on the same time, same day and same IM-software in order to make these appointments. Using a Bulleting Board is better and easier in this case.

By the way, thanks for posting that tipit-link before, it really helped! Next time I play RS I am going to make clay pots. :)

Trillian.

Point taken? :)

Also, the point of an IM is you run it all the time, and when somebody else is online, you can message them. Believe me, even with the time shift the online times randomly overlap far more often than actually necessary. And that is when you *don't* arrange anything. You can always ask someone to be online around a certain time beforehand.

And if you absolutely can't reach someone, you can send them something called a Private Message. The wonders of modern technology... nifty, huh? :)

And again they are updating. I wonder what it exactly is that they update so often lately. its getting a bit annoying, don't you think?

About the IM and such: Now we know what times we can expact each other, so there is no real need for it anyway. and by the way, this ming iron bussines is working so good that I can't believe it actually wotks! I'm already level 50, and I started today with level 48!

A very good software, indeed. I am going to have lots of use of it. Like e-messenger only not web-based and therefore a lot better.

Thanks!

EDIT: Fixed quote-bold.

My method is somewhat different. You need at least 40 crafting and mining, a brown apron, and probably a rune pick. Go to the least crowded world, and go to the crafting guild (south of Falador). You need to wear the brown apron, or they won't let you in. Go in there, and if it's empty, mine all the gold rocks (like 10 of them, I think), then drop the gold, and mine them again. Gold gives more XP than coal, and by the time you finish mining the rocks, they will have respawned.

yes, but that means to first get level 40 (was it level 40?) in crafting and then you'll be able to get in. Mining iron you can do always, that is, if you have level 20 mining. I'm almost ready with smelting all the stuff i mined, and it got me 2 levels up in smithing! another 4 levels and I'll be the same level as my friend who was arrogant and said it will take me a loooong time until i can do something with mithril (he himself is level 42, now I'm 38).

They tell you what the update is on the main page. And the updates aren't annoying when you get to benefit from them. :P
