I remember back in 2007 or 08 ish,
One day, my brother and his friends come over.
They all huddle on the same computer cheering on! "Eat EAT EAT EAT, SPEC SPEC SPEC!" (At that time I didn't know what they were playing)
I guess they were pking, but I had no clue lol
So I watched as pixelated characters kill each other. Then I heard screaming... (the person dropped rune armor, and some other stuff)
I asked what were you guys playing, he said "Runescape"
I didn't immediately go on the game but after a few weeks, I wanted to try it... I couldn't remember it, so I asked my friends "do you guys play run and escape?" They were laughing there arse off then they told me "runescape."
When I got home, I remember logging in and a person offered me bronze armor, iron, I thought I was the happiest person in the world lolol! :woeh: :woeh: :woeh:

Then after that I just started enjoying the game <3

I was 'introduced to it' in second grade but I never played it because I wasn't 13 years old. I idiotically respected it and forgot about it until like 8th grade or something.

Friends irl showed me it, friends online kept me playing it.

I started playing in elementary school some time in 02/03. I had just moved across the US during the summer of 2002, so RuneScape became my way of hanging out with my old friends and when school started the fall, it also helped me make new friends in my class that played the game.

Back in late 2003, me and my friends were doing some all nighters at an internet gaming cafe place (we were like 11-12 years old). Well one night we were bored at like 3am so one of them introduced us to Runescape. Took me like two months to get Java working on my computer at home but the rest, I'll avoid as it will turn into a rant against some of those who introduced me to the game.

My friend introduced the game to me back in 2005. I had a goal to beat his combat level, even though he played for much longer than me already. I did that, easily, and continued playing.

My brother worked on my for weeks 'till I eventually gave in, I remember getting really really bored going through the tutorial; he promised me an air staff if I made it through which I guess was a whole lot at that time lol.
Now he has since quit and I'm still going strong

There was a massive teenchat phase in my school, then Habbo Hotel, people really got into that, then one day a guy in our form came in and said he started "runescape", everyone jumped on and tried it, i was one of the few who stuck it out.

I started playing my Freshman year of high school. I had saw all the kids who play all those trading card games always use the computers every morning to play the game and I'd always unplug their Ethernet cords causing them to disconnect and rage :innocent:. Pretty messed up looking back at things but I can't change it so no point dwelling on it. Anyways by Christmas break my Freshman year I was bored and decided to see what they always fussed about and whatnot and pretty much got hooked.

Miniclip back in 2003/4 but in reality I only started playing long trem in May 2005 when my friend showed me and another it. The original friend quit soon after and friend 2 lasted about 5 years. This game is very Stockholm syndrome with me right now.

I remember a friend begging me to try it; so I did. I ran oit of patience for it within 20 minutes due to me thinking Tutorial Island was the be all and end all.

Little did I know that was just the beginning...
