RuneScape: How Has It Changed?
How much has Runescape changed over the past years? This topic delves into that issue as well as other issues old users such as me trying to get back into the game have with it. The facts and info in the document may scare you.
How much has Runescape changed over the past 3 years, from RIGHT NOW, (as of writing time, June 2, 2009). It may make some users think back to a time back then, when trading wasn’t limited, scamming was rampant, gold auto miners were wild, Pking was a must, and the graphics stunk. (Kind of like the comparison of today to back then, in the 80s .) There are a lot of words in the article, and if you read the whole thing and open your mind to my point I will be very grateful towards any comment you have to make towards the article.
Let me start out by listing the updates and changes as well as events and their dates that have taken place over this period of time:
Additions to the game/website (some of my favorites are bolded):
3 New Skills
21 New Player Submitted Galleries of Art
31 New Postbags from the Hedge
Addition of the G.E. and the G.E. database
Layout of the Website Design Changed
2 New Payment Options
Teleportation Portals (in the wilderness)
Pest Control Changes
Stronghold of Security
Capes of Achievement
Capes of Achievement- To start, why don’t I include probably the most desired and lusted for thing in the game: The Achievement Capes. For those of you that don’t know the Achievement capes are capes that can be bought from the skill master for 99k to increase the level of your skill from 99 to 100, maxing out your capabilities and showing off to anyone who sees it, and how could I forget the awesome emote that comes along with it? My friend (I know him in real life) had wanted one of these ever since they came out, so he said “I’m going to get at least one of these sooner than later”. So he worked for them. The first one he got was a fletching cape, and I was like “wow! How on earth did you do that!” and he was like “Cause I’m Bob”.
Months later I got a phone call from him, and he goes “Guess what?” So I go along with it, and say “What?” He says “I just got 99 fletching.” My jaw dropped. “How on earth are you that much of a loser?” were my thoughts. Now, I never told him this over the phone, but I was thinking out loud, and somehow I knew he knew. I’m just playing, I’m just playing, and I never said that to him, I was like “Wow! Congratulations!” and we went on discussing his plans on getting the skill cape for it, and the emote, and all of that.
