Anybody here who knows their Rock and Roll history knows that there are seven ages of Rock. I am just curious though, how many ages of Runescape do you think there are? In my opinion, there are four ages of Runescape players. I will list them down below.

1. The Runescape 1 generation (2001-2004)

2. The pre-Grand Exchange generation of Runescape 2 (2004-2007)

3. The pre-EOC generation of Runescape 2 (2007-2012)

4. The EOC generation also known as the Runescape 3 generation. (2012-to present day)

In my opinion, the Runescape 1 and pre-Grand Exchange Runescape 2 generation of players are the most similar generation of players ever in Runescape history. Why? Because both of these generations got to experience Runescape before the Grand Exchange came. By the way, I joined Runescape during the pre-GE generation of RS2. What about you guys? :)

In runescape, ages means the historical ages.

Here is what I am talking about. Old school is currently in the 5th age.

As to the greatest number of players, it peaked at nearly 3 million 2 years AFTER the ge was introduced.

May have had 2-3 million accounts created but hardly that many playing the game at once.

2 and 3 are the same, both are pre-eoc, cant be splitting them up due to what you like.


classic / rs1 - rs2- rs3


No, they're not. May as well call RS2 and RS3 the same then.
I would much rather anyone PK in game than do so irl. If you wanna get it out, do it on an online platform please. I don't want anyone getting harmed physically. :(

At that time they had 160 million accounts created. No, of course they did not play at one, but at least once ever two weeks and were paying membership fees.

Sure back in those days there were real world traders that had a hundred accounts, most in f2p, not paying membership, but according to jagex there were never more than 100k member bots at any time.
