RuneScape Claims 200M Accounts

There are now enough RuneScape accounts for one out of every 30 persons on Earth to play the game, according to Jagex, who say their free-to-play massively multiplayer online adventure game now boasts over 200 million registered users who have logged over 443 billion minutes (seven billion hours if you favor clarity over excess) of game time since its launch in 2001. Here's word on how they are celebrating this milestone: "All residents of the RuneScape world are welcome to take part in the in-game celebrations that will be taking place over the next three days. A brand new demon has been discovered, with the health of 200 million hit points! This epic demon can only be defeated with a unique weapon developed specifically for this landmark celebration, and successful demon slayers will be rewarded with a unique item."

Counting signing up, playing for an hour or so, and never playing again... is kind of lame.

They need to boast how many active accounts they have... not how many people have fricken tried it.
They just want to show off.

Wow! Pretty soon it will be as popular as ICQ is!

Er...wait...
If anything, this just makes the company look sad.

They should have touted their "HIT COUNTER" on their website.

98,954,985 HITS AND COUNTING SINCE 2001!! Runescape has been a resounding success!

well being free to play, I am sure alot of people had tried it at some point or another too. I know I have feigned interest but haven't really pulled the trigger, to many other games to play still. However I can guarentee you the number of active players is pretty low.

Looking at their infographics they provide, I would replace 'players' with 'bots' and it would be a tad more accurate.
