Right... Runescape is starting to take my m8s life over and i need some really good points to get him to stop playing it, I've tried some points but he doesn't listen. It's gotten to the point he hardly plays guitar any more and the rest of the band want to ditch him because of it but he's my best friend. Help please!

Cancel his members subsciption if he has one, if he doesn't he'll get bored in a few days on free to play

I hate that game...
My little brother almost never came off the computer when he played that, and now he's my weight...
Anyway just tell him to go outside, or pull some pranks (not on him with him)
He'll get tired of it eventually

Be glad it's not WoW. I lost many friends to that game.

Lol his Wow broke but at least he was sociable(sp?) in real life then, now all he talks about is Runescape.

Ah, runescape, so many wasted summer days on that damn game...

So glad I quit. I have a friend who's playing it a lot recently as well. Tell him that he's going to regret all the time he wasted on it when he's older. It might work, and if it doesn't get his password and take all his money and stuff, he'll lose a lot of his will to play

well, many options, having experienced this game myself for 2 yrs (got over it now a year and a 1/2 ago)

you could start playing and try to get better than him by having no life. he'll get bored when your higher than him and he tries to train all day to beat you (worked for me when got a friend into rs).

introduce him to WoW and then he'll stop playing rs, though then he'll spend more time on WoW.

tell him that once he gets to lvl 126, he'll have nothing to show for it and nothing left to do since isn't even sellable on ebay, and in high level clan wars, the level of character doesn't matter, since if your teamed against, u'll die quick anyway.

And make sure it is above level 20 so he doesn't go all teletubby like a n00b.



I'm such a nerd...
I`m glad I don`t know what that`s supposed to mean.

I wasted so much time playing that game like 3 years ago. It used to actually be enjoyable before all those damn 3d updates now it is just like a poor man's WoW. I'm glad I quit playing it.

Level 60 would take about 3 days maximum if you try hard enough...after that it starts to slow down...

I've just figrued this place is kinda like AA, but for former runescape addicts (me being one, stopped playing around a year ago )

i was lvl 75 and friend no lifed for 9 months n was 110 by time i was 106

i'd not advise that though

its easier to make him no life soo doing grinding that he gets fed up (i spent 2 months 10 hours a day grinding to get higher levels 1 summer, and then quit at end of august, but at least i got it out of my system).

to be hacked is a good way, or get his password, change it and give all his money and items to n00bs in lumbridge, and then he'll get fed up and maybe quit


i'm afraid to say i understand completely what teletubby, gds and lumby etc mean. i also knew exactly the west side of the wild, and most of the main map, because i was lvl 85 mining (spent a month mining 55k iron ore to get it) so spent a while at wild rune rocks

i was into clans, otherwise would quit a year before, and at least with clans it was mildly interesting.

^ I've already suggested introducing him to the other gender.

Or laugh at him that he dosent get any, and a day or two after introduce him to a nice girl that will actually go out with him, and give him a kiss or something.

Thats how i got one of my mates off several months ago.

We made fun of one of my friends for a looong time when he played it...

eventually he quit and thanked us 4 it.

Show him porn


Nooooo. Don't show him porn. That's even worse than RS, I would know.

Me: C'mon dude, let's go do something other than RS
Friend: Alright

*types in new web address*

Me: Uhh, what are you doing?
Friend: Porn.
Me: I meant like go outside or something...
Friend: Hey, can you leave the room for about 5-6 minutes?
Me: *goes outside*

I admit, I am a recovering WoW addict.

Damn, dude. I had ZERO life. But now I can't play it for more than fifteen minutes without getting crazy ADD and wanting to go throw cheese at someone.
