2007 Runescape is coming back! Feb. 16th, 2013 @ 08:00 PM Reply

So for those of you who played this game during your childhood like most of us have, Jagex has finally realised that they are losing players and money so the they have released a poll HERE!

Apparently you can vote every day too so that will give us even more hope.

What do you all think of this?

I am definitely going to play the game again. 2007 was a pretty damn good year for RS. The combat was solid and GE didn't fuck everything up.

Currently it's at 131k and the poll was released yesterday...

You mean to tell me I have to be a member just to vote?
Which means I have to pay money just to sign this?
Fuck that

This sounds good to me, the "new improved graphics" look shit compared to the more simplistic older ones, would approve of that change.

I had a lot of fun playing Runescape back in the day, sadly whenever I try it again now I get bored too easily.

I agree. That's because when a lot of us played, we had no idea what we were doing. But now, everyone is going to be skillled haha I can't wait

Interesting idea, but Runescape can't just simply return to what it once was. So many memories and exciting adventures shared with friends through the internet in this game, it and it's music will always bring large nostalgic value for me and my older brother who was a player of the game for it's first 5 or 6 years I think.

Runescape still has a chance. Currently they only have about 50k regular players, but once this server goes online, it'll go back to 150k. The game will even be 10x better because everyone will know what to do...

YES! GOD YES, I AM GOING TO GO VOTE RIGHT NOW, FUCKING YES! :D

...Members only vote? Come on! Still awesome with 2007 RS, this has to pass. I might actually start playing again! That is, if it has F2P. Actually, just kidding, I'll pay for nostalgia.

It'll be expensive if it doesn't get 500k votes. $15/$10 a month, that's way too much for a game from 2007 that isn't being updated.

Yeah the vote is pretty lame. They're really letting us down, once again.
But we can still play an independent progressively updated version of Runescape 06 at projectrs06.com

I never played Runescape in 07, but I've heard good things and seen the gameplay. It looks great! I'll sign. It's a pay to play game, right?


It's hip to be square, but it's hipper to be torus! You shall watch and you shall like.

once it hits 500k they will update stuff like new easter eggs and events and things like that.

I remember my Runescape days. Looking back, it probably isn't something to get crazy about, but it's still neat to see.

Really miss this game. The music, my friends, the questing. I don't really want to go back then, I might ruin it for myself since I'm definitely looking through rose tinted glasses.

Yeah, that's not what I personally want, I want 2007 RuneScape. As for Project RS 06, I would play that, and I have, but it's not my nostalgia, so to speak, since I started playing in 07. I believe.

Is there a way to find out when one signed up for RuneScape?

Yeah. I'm one of the guys that plays project rs06 but I was f2p back then so I probably won't play runescape 2007 when it comes out.

The 2007 server won't have the grand exchange and the wildy will still be a pking place.

At this rate the servers will cost $22 to play. If we manage to get to 250,000 votes it'll only cost $10. It doesn't matter much to me though. I won't be able to play unless we get 750,000 votes.


???-2004?=dark ages, 2005?=atomic betty era, 2006=red dwarf era, 2007-2009=newgrounds era, 2009-on= anime era.

it's really only fair to the public if jagex lets F2P members vote after we hit 250k...
