Back in the day, in 2002, I couldn't play the game as much as I wanted, even though I was 15 years old and did nothing besides going to school every morning. I had one computer, a dial-up connection and another brother to share the playing time with. So, since I had limited time, my evolution was slow and painful, so it took me some time to built a bankroll and level up. I have many stories from that time and today I'll share the saddest one LMAO.
In the beginning, I had only one char ("Samuca") and I didnt know ppl built chars just to pk (the ones called "pure"). So I trained every skill and cb skill I wanted without thinking much of it. One day, I was finally able to buy a rune long sword to go along with my full addy. Shit, I was a happy kid and wanted to play for hours and hours. I remember my parents were travelling, meaning that I could stay up and play throughout the night, a rare occasion!
It happens I had a sweet sixteen birthday party that day, a real big one, since my friend was very very rich. So I went to the party, but all I could think of was to play runescape classic, specially going to wilderness to "test the new gear". I've been there only a few times, I was always scared to lose my precious gear... But with my rune long I felt unbeatable.
So the party started. Everything beautiful, very good food, all the pretty ladies from class were even more prettier. However, lil fatty Samuca wanted none of it. Nonono. So after the dinner I stayed like about one hour at the dance floor and when the first person I knew left, I went along.
I arrived home before midnight. I was fucking hyped! Fired up my old computer and logged in, ready to go and demonstrate to everyone the mighty power of the rune long sword wielded by Samuca, the fierce predator! I went to Varrock border and found one guy around my level named "Hren" and, If i remember correctly, he was also using a full addy, but wielding a rune sword with no shield (obvious rune2h - pretty expensive at the time).
I attacked him and we fought for a couple of rounds. He hitted me hard a couple of times, but I didn't see him as a treat. Anyway, after those rounds, he asked me to team up with him, given there were some other people our level arriving at the scene. I said "sure"! I went to bank for more trouts and when I came back, he told me to range while he attacked. Fine.
So we did that for a while and even managed to kill some people ("share, "share" LOL). He was definetely a addy pure and was hitting way bigger than what I could have hit (since i fucking had more than 30 defense and a lot of magic). Ok, so some minutes later, this guy appeared and the tactic was for me to range while he attacked.
Only that when I went into the wilderness my "teammate" attacked me and the other dude ranged. He hitted a 19 and half of my life was gone on the first hit, I watched in disbelief what was happening while furious clicking to run away from the battle, my heart was almost exploding with adrenaline, but I knew I wouldnt make it out of the 3 rounds alive. And it happened. The screen froze and blackened, followed by the famous sentence "Oh dear... your dead!".
I was in Lumbridge. With nothing on my inventory. I had lost all my gear, everything I had. My precious rune long, which I bought for 32k at the store, was as good as nothing. I had no armour and no gps. My bank was probably full of junk. I probably had some steel and mithril gear there, but that was it.
I started to cry. Tears of anger coming down non-stop. That fucking traitor! How could he backstab me like that??! I was angry. I was sad. I was mad at me for leaving a cool party early just to die like a complete moron. I barely played one hour. And even though I could stay up all night, I went to bed and cried myself to sleep.
Hahahaha It was a tough lesson, but I always remember this story with a smile on my face haha GOOD TIMES!
RIP rune long. gone but never forgotten.
haha good read, when terror & I were about 14 he hacked for me 1k trouts and salmon, mind you he figured out my password because i had a crush on some girl from our class and I used her name as my password. I fished those fuckers for the longest, I spent all my money on feathers. God i hated him so much at the time, but he made it up to me couple months later with a yellow phat. Good times :-)
If you want, I say we find them and go kick their ass.
