Official Oldschool Runescape Thread Feb. 22nd, 2013 @ 03:25 PM Reply

So here it is: http://oldschool.runescape.com/ !

They just launched it 11am EST. Currently it is only allowed to players who have voted early and have membership.

If you haven't voted yet, feel free to post here on whatever you are doing on EoC Runescape until this game is available to the public.

Currently, my goal is to be able to make addy armor. My mining lvl is 33 at the moment.

I hope you are all enjoying it as much as I do. :)

Ah man this looks awesome, I loved the older gfx.

If it was free I'd be on it, any chance of it opening to free users?

That title brings back some memories, honestly.

I remember the first time I ever played Runescape. I was in fifth grade at the time, and everyone in our little computer class was talking about it. It had just come out a week or so before then, and I remember being so impressed by it. It lost some appeal, honestly. I just can't seem to get into it anymore.

How much is it to play? Is it a per month thing or just a one time thing?

Looks nice from the page seen, may have a go at it at some point, depends do you need to make a new character for it though?

Mhe, well then again I suppose at least then I won't be AS bored. Who knows, might do it if some friends do it. As fuck playing Runescape alone anymore. That game gets so absolutely dull without people to talk to who are actually interesting.

ie. I want you to shove me in a friends request if I do get into it again as well as others.

Because they don't change currency depending on where you live with anything bought online.

Hax. It is odd that I do miss this game. So many people go "hur hur runescape is shit lol" bandwagon jumpers yet really, it's a reasonable and fun game, just got boring after a while, but seems interesting a little again.

So the vote has ended and obviously it did not pass 500k votes.

BUT they did allow us to just pay members to play. So no extra fee for another 6 months (unless the numbers keep growing and a lot of regulars play it)

They do have a team to fix bugs and make events and things like that.

A quick question, how popular is this right now? I might get it seeing as my WoW memebership ran out.

It's a monthly payment of 8 bucks. This is because you need to be a member to access it.
