    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.

    I loved classic. I really wish I still had PHats and Halloween Masks.

    "RuneScape 2" was annoying due to the needlessly complex interface. Switching from combat, to magic, to prayer, switching weapons, switching armor, eating...

    RuneScape 3? Seems to fix a lot of that annoying crap but brings the game to the verge of being another generic MMO.
