Lynx Titan (known as Forsberg888 on RuneScape 3) is an Old School Runescape player whose account is currently rank #1 on the Old School RuneScape Hiscores. It is estimated he played for 17-18 hours a day. He claims to play primarily for entertainment despite his highly pragmatic approach to training and the fact that he presumably forgoes much real-life activities in order to play for as many hours as he does. He currently has 99 in every skill and 200m XP in 20 skills. His current goal is attaining 200m XP in mining.

Lynx Titan is estimated to reach 200M in all skills in late 2018 or early 2019.

Old School History

On August 14th 2015 the reign of Lynx Titan began, as he achieved 99 ranged and thereby ascended to rank 1 overall.

After achieving 200 million Hunter experience in less than 2 and a half months for his 5th 200M (improving the monthly record by over 30 million experience), he switched to Herblore. After achieving 200m Herblore, he started to train Slayer. He achieved 200m Slayer on 10 May 2016 and also finished off most of the ćombat skills. He also gained 187 million Construcion XP in less than 2 weeks to finish off 200m Construction.

Notably, from the period of July 19th 2017, to August 1st 2017, he had not gained a single experience point of experience; since Lynx Titan had played Old School RuneScape every single day while gaining massive amounts of experience, this is highly unusual. Upon returning to the game, and his fans, he revealed that he had been on vacation without internet access for two weeks.[1]

Opinions

Lynx Titan/Forsberg888 is arguably the best and one of most efficient Runescape players ever, even outlasting Drumgun for daily playtime. There are a lot of opinions about him, and other high profile players have made their thoughts known.

nobody can compete with him, he's insane. Even if I had unlimited time it would be impossible since he plays 18 hours every single day....he's a machine.

Hey Jase, Reddit[2]

The former #1 OSRS player, Sick Nerd, didn't approve of Lynx Titan's style of playing, and holds a grudge against him. It is widely assumed that Sick Nerd ultimately quit competing for 200M all skills, because Lynx Titan was gaining too much XP. Sick Nerd then gave up and changed his name to "Team Titan".

I'm not competing with him, I'd rather not use alts/afk nmz at night just to have a chance at keeping up, I'd rather play the way I enjoy :)

Trivia

He is widely known for playing more than one account at the same time; a strategy colloquially referred to as "multilogging." When he does this, he is typically training his main while crafting nature runes on a secondary account.

He has a YouTube account called Forsberg1000 where he posts update style videos infrequently.[4]

During Runefest 2015, he was awarded a Golden Gnome for "Hall of Fame" achievement. He showed the Gnome to his viewers in his RuneScape setup video on Youtube. The Golden Gnome Awards is an annual competition that recognizes members of the RuneScape community.

RS3

Lynx Titan's RS3 account is called Forsberg888. He was the second player to get 5.2 billion experience and the third to get 200m XP in all skills after Suomi and Drumgun. He was mainly known for getting over 2.5 billion XP in one year. At the time he used his OSRS account "Lynx Titan" as a money making alt doing Runecrafting. He gained about 50m Runecrafting XP doing so. After the new skill "Invention" was released on RS3, he didn't bother to train it and instead decided to focus on OSRS.
