Due to the much needed Mining and Smithing update i have rejoined Runescape after leaving years ago, and after a week of Mining i decided to take a break and play some minigames with
my shiny freshly forged armor and weapons notably Castle wars, Soul Wars and Pest Control

And what i found were mini games completely devoid of life (even after switching worlds)
and so after some investigating I've found out that mini games are dead.

Now I've played through the golden years of Runescape where worlds would easily be filled
and seeing mini games now devoid of players was a rather large disappointment i know that there is that spot light thing going on but is there a way we can revive the mini game player base?

Only way I think they can get people into it is by adding really Op xp rewards. Even then im not even sure if people would bother. Its not the same community as the "golden days" where people did minigames for fun, house parties, stood and just chatted etc.

Minigames are active on spotlights, but not active with everyone playing. Castlewars for example, w24 will have tons of people on spotlight but most will be afking at the base for thaler.

I find that for myself the greatest obstacle to playing minigames is time. I play several hours a day, but I can no longer complete all the dailees weeklees and monthlees, and use my auras (jot, dwarven instinct, hellion), let alone do a reaper task. Hopefullee we will get the "reduction in dailleescape" update earlee this year.

This is exactly the problem. A lot of people care too much about efficiency over fun( if one did find a certain minigame fun). Even when done dailies, people go to skilling and pvm over a minigame, since minigames aren't rewarding. Even if they removed most of the dailyscape, I don't think it will do anything unless they highly buff rewards of minigames. People who bother with all the dailyscape like you mentioned, care about exp. Likely they will just be skilling more with reduction

Please oh wgoever has the power. Oh great mighty runescape lords. Find a way to bring back soul wars and stealing creations. I remember doing nothing but those two minigames back to back. Oldschool right before it died. This will revive us.
