But that's the biggest difference between Runescape and its still running Old School Runescape counterpart. Both share about the exact same amount of concurrent players, but how players interact in each is quite different.
Old School Runescape may only have about 25,000 players in any given moment - hardly a scratch on the amounts it used to achieve in 2006 - but its players have understood the game for years. They have decade-old friendships , they know where to hang out, how to interact and almost every talking point the match and its storied history has produced. They ramble past each other without commenting, do not all converge in the same spots for no reason or attend feign parties in vacant attics... they simply get on with playing the match.
Runescape is best experienced as a never-ending RPG. You will find online experiences to be had there, but the ones that I played through were more structured and curated than anything else in Old School Runescape. My memories of Runescape in 2006 entirely revolve around interacting with other individuals. I had been scammed or lured into PvP zones and killed almost daily since I was promised some gift from a top level player, but as frequently as gamers exploited my ignorance there were also countless times that they provided to help me, taking me under their wing in analyzing boss fights or giving me loose gear.
Jagex spent trying to smooth out the rough edges of Runescape's online interactions to help noobs like me. They created the massive, sprawling Stronghold of Security and filled it with exceptional rewards simply to educate players about online safety, they eliminated free commerce to prevent new players getting duped into unfair deals, and made it so players can just lose a small amount of loot upon dying at the Wilderness.
The current model of Runescape was essentially made for me personally. But while I enjoyed spending a few days bumbling around its world and revelling in its apparent familiarity, it has done nothing to satisfy the Runescape craving which brought me there in the first place.A return to classic PC game Runescape after 11 Decades
