|Known for||Having been ranked the number one free-to-play user|
Syzygy started playing RuneScape after playing another game where he overheard someone mention a new graphical game that he or she had seen. He wrote down the URL and gave the game a try. He chose the name because he has had a fascination with astronomy (sygyzy being an astronomical term), and when he heard the word, he thought it would be a good name for a game character.
He was playing before RuneScape had members, and when it did come out, he made the decision to continue playing as a free-to-play user. He said that he was never saw the need to be a member, and felt that if he became a member, it would invalidate the work that was already put into the account. He achieved his first level 99 skill in Smithing. On 28 January 2008, Syzygy achieved an overall level of 1494 (which was the highest overall level a free-to-play user could be at the time), the first non-member to do so. As of 2 October, he has an overall level of 1651 (1615 if you exclude member skills), and has level 99 in every free-to-play skill except for Dungeoneering which is level 120.
On 28 April 2012, Syzygy reached 200 million experience in Woodcutting; he was the first non-member to reach this milestone. The next year, on 19 March 2013, he attained 200 million Runecrafting experience, the second to do so.[ ]
