This is no way an attack to rs3, im not against it, there are still bugs in it im sure it will be fixed soon.
but i do support in helping those players who have lost interest it in, and simply having an alternative for them to play again, maybe a toggle to bring back the old style. (I know the old school) is a presets but still not the same for these players. I also understand the technical constraints, but there must be a way to motivate players back again.
But more to the point i checked on the 30th July, on highscores we had 586k members, i have just checked it has been reduced to 577k now. Is it cause its beginning of month and people haven’t subscribed yet or is this cause of rs3.
We can just update and see how many members we have on rs, and see a statistical trend.
Just going to leave this here:

RuneScape reaches one million members!
It’s true… RuneScape has surpassed the Million Member milestone!!!
It has been amazing to witness the growth of such a diverse and varied community of people. To have over a million individuals enjoying the members’ game for all kinds of different reasons is both hugely humbling and gratifying. It tells us our efforts are appreciated and we have you, the players, to thank for your support.
We are excited by the challenge to continue to develop the game so it simply becomes better and better. Five years on and we are more passionate about RuneScape than ever. We’ve come a really long way and whether you’ve been with us from the very start, or if you’re fairly new, the incredible impact you have all had has helped shape the game into what you see today.
As the world of RuneScape has grown, so has our desire to make it an even bigger, better and more entertaining experience. We are always looking to bring fresh new ideas to the game, and RuneScape’s development continues at full swing. We already have some very exciting development plans for Runescape 2007 Gold and beyond!
Thanks again for your support. Here’s to the future and the many adventures still to come!
