I played osrs for two years and played from 2007-10 and literally last five months made me switch to RuneScape gold which I now play for a bit over a month. Runescape3 may have MTX but holy shit that the ammount of content for all that is amazing and skilling doesn’t feel like a exact same fucking material for 120 hours straight (yes I am looking at you osrs runecrafting). Zeah amazing articles and both raids are also good but ffs either nerf present best pvm moneymakers which I mentioned or buff aged PvM loot tables because drops outside of uniques are unhappy at shit like GWD for your effort you need to make compared to stuff like revs which got even more buffed by wildy weapons.
I played it for quite a long time as it was fresh, and performed RS Vintage for the couple years that it was until two came out. Thus, guess you are mistaken.
Do I really like Runescape, It’s such a exceptional world, it’s able to have a grin in my head and it allows me feel that feeling of adventure, magic and discovery that very few games can make me feel now adays.
But then I recall, I remember that Runescape remains something, it only keeps increasing in number of players, the planet only keeps growing, the programmers keep listening to cheap RS gold their own community and working hard to make a fantastic match over all else.
