    Default So, RuneScape is Dead?

    I played RuneScape a LOT during it's earlier years and hop back from time to time.
    So, I bought 1 month of premium membership and jumped in.

    To my surprise a large amount of the game servers are very low pop.
    Even some of the previously full "trade" servers are < 100.
    The last time I logged in pretty much so every server was >700.

    What happened?

    Seems a bit silly. Chrome takes like 1 minute to install. The desktop client takes about the same.

    I really like the new systems. It's no longer a mindless grind that requires jumping to a new interface table for each new action you want to do. lol

    I've played since Runescape Classic and the population is still pretty high.

    how do we know the numbers are not fake?
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    If I remember well.. Didnt Runescape have like 250k users online back in 2004 or so?

    I think thats what I saw back then. Were great times.

    And that it already has 20k in classic compared to 50k in the current rs3 already tells that something is very wrong

    It isn't dead, but it is a ghost town compared to what it once was.
