Why challenge Runescape?
« on: November 18, 2005, 04:23:34 AM »
I don't really have a problem with it seeing as a new MMORPG (hopefully someday) would be nice online to escape to when the world starts sucking even more  ::)

But, I have to ask, why are you challenging the Jagex Team? I'm just here asking a simple question since I came upon this site looking for information about Andrew Gower (to better my knowledge of Runescape and the Jagex Team)... and now I'm addicted to CyberWars :D

Well, I hope that this question is answered, and the game IS looking good so far ;) keep up the good work! :D

Thank you.

I'm not really challenging Jagex, it's all just coincidence :) I started to work on multiplayer games in java long time ago. I created multiplayer checkers, but I did not have own internet domain, nor own server. I knew Runescape, but I did not know that there existed game like CyberWars. (gamesdomain was already closed). I also started to work on Runescape-like game, but did not get very far (that was like two years ago). Then I learned about CyberWars, by pure coincidence, I found some fan webpages (bringbackcyberwars && cyberwars forever) and I liked that game. I contacted people who maintained these pages and we agreed that I'll make a clone. Now it's done, and I'm continuing with runescape-like game. I'm not trying to challenge jagex, I'm just trying to create a game which would be played by many people. (I was slightly disappointed by cyberbattles in this aspect, only few people play it)

Why challenge Runescape?  Because, frankly, it wouldn't take too much to beat runescape. :P

Putting all the facts together, not putting all my eggs in one basket, counting my chickens only after they have hatched and letting sleeping dogs lie I have deduced that nobody cares about runescape! Next topic.  :)

true dat.  Runescape may have many players, but that is just because its one of the only free, 3-d fantasy MMORPGs online.  It's really rather low quality.

I played for a good year or so, then I died trying to PK and lost all my stuff So I took up smithing/mining, but it was so repetitive and boring that I quit.

Now my account has been given to about 5 people, and I can't access it anymore :'(

No. Runescape is too sucky now in my teen years. Especially the new 3D graphics, they blow. The 2D graphics were much more colourful and clear.

Thanks for the offer ;D
