“It’s been amazing to see such dedication amongst those of you who have maintained playing RuneScape Classic over the past couple of decades,” Jagex’s farewell post says,”However, RS gold‘s not all fun and games” Apparently, botting had become a serious problem and a growing record of game-breaking bugs were proving too difficult to eradicate.
For many players whose formative years coincided with the advent of the new millenium, RuneScape was the hangout of choice. Plus it seems old habits die hard. In 2013, RuneScape attained a 2 million accounts milestone. The match obviously evolved since its initial release — with significant upgrades in 2004 and 2013 — yet players were still enthralled by retro sensibilities: a survey of 160,000 fans resulted in the recovery of hosts that were old, and this leaves Jagex’s announcement even more bittersweet.
The good news — since there’s always a bright side to everything — is that RuneScape Classic servers continue to be online right now, and Gielindor’s doors will stay open for the next 3 months.Runescape founder Jagex raises $300K for mental health charities
