Castle Wars is arguably the most played and best Runescape minigame ever. Jagex released Castle Wars on December 14, 2004. The objective is simple, each team has a flag and the other teams goal is to break into the opposite teams base and steal the flag. Runescape did at it’s own twists and unique features but it’s pretty obvious they based the minigame off of Capture The Flag. In 2009 Castle Wars was voted the most popular player vs player minigame in a poll hosted on the official Runescape website. Here is an old castle wars video!
Although there are no skill or quest requirements to participate in the game, you’d generally see a variety of different high level players battling it out. For the most part lower levels would quickly be killed and wouldn’t be able to enjoy it as much. Share the memories you have of playing castlewars down in the comments below!
