No, I hope one day Jagex starts to realize RS3 IS dying. Obviously OSRS is doing something right and RS3 is doing thing(s) wrong.

Like what?

It seems pretty buzzy to me...

Did someone call me? lol

This was very sharp and funny :)

The only real way to get any player interaction in this game now is through clans or friends chats.

Personally I prefer RS3 (took a while)
It is all taste and timing, I think.
Taste - which style of game you prefer atm (tastes change)
Timing - Time of year, time of day? (missing one out here lol)

All games go through 'ups and downs'. Some stay loyal and new ones join.

This question has been asked for years, yet we are all still here. :)

So NO it is not dying - just changing. imo

Yesterday, I played for the first time in several years. I threw some bonds on my account to jump into the game, bought some pk gear at the GE and hit world select to find that the game is dead. World 2 had like a thousand people, everywhere else had 20-400. There were >30 people in the pk servers. At first I felt cheated, having bought membership to a game that isn't really there anymore. But then I rationalized that Jagex probably needs help keeping the lights on at this point so that made me feel less bad.
Tldr: Rs3 is definitely dead. More people are playing minesweeper right now
This game was awesome while it lasted though: lots of good times!

id have to say runescape hasn't been the same in many years. I would say its dieing but its no longer what people were into at first. the game is going around kids now instead of older group of people ( eoc is more for kids then old rs players). I personally only came back to try to see if any changes were good. I don't think ill stay either and here my reasons. 1 of them is the things I used to enjoy doing is dead content( I would solo pvm all day /or dg). 2 the biggest things to me in a mmo is how hard is it to get on top? many of you are probly thinking what u mean by that. what I mean by that how much can a average player earn on gp per hour for rs. if average is to low players start to disappear at a rapid pace. the last time this game had a mass player base was when coinshare was still around. my 3rd reason is the state of the game and community out there isn't the greatest. mmo's should be made for people to work together how ever that's not the case in this one. runescape is all about wealth and clicks there is no trust no team work outside of this. if your a new player today all I have to say is I feel sorry for you. I remember when this game had 1k+ ppl in every world and world 2/1 was always full back in the day that time is gone and it'll never come back.

I don't think RuneScape is dead. I seem to have logged in and am playing right now.

I can't recall how many of these silly RuneScape is dead threads I have seen over the years.

Now you have me laughing. What exactly do I have to pay and how does that make me win?

I am so sick of that nonsensical rhetorical statement. All I pay for is membership.

doesn't mean that your pay to win I'm just stating that runescape has turned into 100% p2w in the right hands( for example a new player could start a new accont and have best gear in the game within days, back when rs was populated every player earned what they had). with the things out today u could max comp/trim a accont in a matter of months from lvl 3 depending on how much $ u wanted to throw at the game. give this game another 2 years see whats left of it. ive met people in other mmo's that will throw 1000's of $ at a game and not care because they can. then quit 2 -3months later til new updates then just do it again.

I play both versions of rs each have the upsides and downsides. Neither dead.
Depends how you play, sure pvp in rs3 has not been much besides rc, agility and rush pking those with little to no fight back chance, not many pk for the fight anymore. That is best in os. But not dead.

haha did someone really say OSRS will die before RS3? OSRS has only seen better days since release and averages 50% more players. At the moment we have a 60/40 split. How can a player even defend RS3 as being an alive game? Don't you guys know that the reason most people left was because of how dead the community was due to the rampant (failing) updates.
Players enjoy the simplicity of old school and how the updates are voiced by the players and not $$$

Step into an old school server and you'll see a vibrant community who actually interacts with one another. Step into RS3 and all you see are players too busy grinding their skills near a bank and don't have the time to take their fingers off their hotkeys to say "hi". :D ^_^

Not hard to see. stop lying to yourselves. :(
