Mod Lyonsaid: SW1FTSN1PRsaid: Can we change "Runescape Accounts Made" to "Runescape Accounts Active/Inactive" for more accuracy in numbers? The 200 million+ accounts made, compared to the amount of players active/inactive in the system is way off.
That is correct. However, the counter is quite clearly labelled as RuneScape accounts made, rather than active RuneScape accounts currently 'active'.
How that would be decided is another debate, but not something we're likely to change. We're proud of the fact that we hold a <a href="http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/105537-most-users-of-an-mmo-videogame" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Guinness World Record</a> for it as well.
Not something we're going to change, sorry. Not sure what benefit we or anyone would gain from changing it either.
Lyon is absolutely right. Jagex owns the Guinness World Record of most accounts made in an MMORPG.
Who can dispute that? Tencent? Blizzard? EA? Wargaming? No. None of them.
That counter is a special accomplishment in World Record magnitude and therefore Jagex is not going to change it.
