Jagex just announced that RuneScape is not satisfied with its Guinness World Record, this free-to-play MMORPG is just growing and threatening to devour entire countries whole. Kind of.
With over 200 million registered users, RuneScape is a mammoth that still lives on since its inception on January 2001. An image with some additional – and wacky – statistics was released. Here are some of those stats:
– 150 dragons are killed per day by each player.
– If Runescape were a country, it would be the fifth most populated in the world (it’s currently 63% of the size of America).
– Players LOL 10 times a second.
– 27 players die each second.
– In five-and-a-half weeks, RuneScape players chopped enough wood to build a bridge to the moon.
Jagex is currently developing the free-to-play MMO Transformers Universe and recently shut down strategy game Eight Realms.
