Hi,

I have a serious question: "Has the RS3 population increased or decreased over the last months?"

When I play the game, I have no problem keeping myself entertained, but I noticed that most places are abandoned. When I am at Menaphos, there are hardly any players there.

The game feels dead if I'm frank. Not the game itself ofcourse, but the current player population.

I'd like to know, thnx.

The main problem IMO is that most of the top end content in RS3 are all in the same place (prif) and most skilling can be done with portables (near banks)... thats why many places are abandoned.

and yes , the rs3 pop aint that big compared to the numbers of the worlds we have... most pvm spots are taking by 1 person only because EOC can kill stuff in area , so u wont find many ppl while killing slayer monsters aswell..


menaphos is mid -tier content, u wont find many ppl there

well when you shove microtransactions in people's faces every day and release lackluster updates to boot it's not a surprise there's only a few remaining, probably ballooning the missing costs via mtx and giving illusion of success bring back the lumbridge pig pit

I would really like to know where are those millions* who have joined the game according to Dilbert. Hard to believe that people sign up for not playing the game.

* and we are talking about about unique accounts here, no bots and alts (again, according to Dilbert).

I log on every day - in fact several times a day, but I have never felt anything has been shoved in my face.
You always have the option to turn away your face if that is what you feel - but why don't you?

Don't forget the current months are Summer in the N.Hemisphere.

Are the free keys (and they're not free, it's a discount), really shoved in your face though? That message has to pop up once every couple of months

Currently I'd actually say the population has increased simply because it's summer in the Northern hemisphere. Regardless, even though that's true, these numbers are unbelievably low - I remember when this game would've had 1m+ playing around about this time of the year and on non peak times there'd be 700k+.

The numbers isn't the issue you have or why the game feels dead (it's a pretty big factor though). It feels dead because the community is anti social, not that there aren't enough people. 200+ on a server is considered high population but even on those you'd be hard pressed to actually find anyone openly having conversations with anyone outside their group in public chat.

You mustn't be ticking the box for that not to show up again if that's the case because it's been ages since I've saw that pop up. Not to mention I think you're being a bit overdramatic regarding it too, it's not that difficult or requires that much effort to get rid of it.
