Unpleasant Atmosphere in OSRS

Have you ever quitted an MMORPG not because of the game but because of the players of that game? Well I have. It was not as enjoyable as when you were ignorant of the community inside the MMORPG. It became as if I didn’t belong there anymore because everything revolved in hatred and it was not a fun place to be in. Smallishbeans I think is in the same situation but in his case, the subreddit of Old School Runescape is where he finds the negativity of people. People are fueled by hatred and people in OSRS thread is not…

Old School Runescape Curiosity – Continuation

Last time I shared with you the post of PrinceMcGiggle in Reddit asking this: “I can understand how someone would find Runescape from 2007 interesting, maybe they don’t like all the new updates and stuff. What I do not understand is what is the allure when they are constantly updating it and adding features? That isn’t “old school” any more, its just Different Runescape. Is there some set of parameters on “Old School” that allows for some update types and not others? Would love to hear people’s opinions.” We heard from watuphomi in his reply to this post, now let’s…

Old School Runescape Curiosity

There are a lot of MMORPG’s out there and some you haven’t heard of. When you encounter an unheard title of the game, you tend (at least I) to search for it, read upon on what the game is all about or even go to Youtube to watch some game reviews made by people on that unfamiliar game. Another is to ask people who are already playing the game or knowledgeable about it. You research on a game that you know or play but curious on what people think about it is another conversation. Like Old School Runescape, I know…

Change the Name of the Game?

There has been a discussion in Reddit about Runescape 07 or OSRS needing a name change. Why? At first I really don’t know what brought this. Will changing the name of the old game we love change anything? Like will it get any better if it did? Or does it have an identity change that merits a name change? Well, let us hear out the one who brought the topic up in Reddit.

Endless Debate in Runescape

Runescape fans and players have been non-stop on comparing Old School Runescape and Runescape 3. Ever since Runescape 3 came out, the comparisons are endless. Maybe this is because long time OSRS players dwell on playing or transferring to Runescape 3 and leaving OSRS behind. Or maybe the other one around, gauging Runescape 3 so that they don’t have to leave all the time invested in OSRS. Who knows?

Which Name Should It Be?

Runescape has been running ever since 2007 and (not really surprising) there are tons of people playing the game. As new Runescape iterations come like Runescape 2 and Runescape 3, the original Runescape still runs under updates and the support of its loyal fans / players and becomes “Old School.” Though they share the same loyalty to the game, Runescape players call the MMORPG with different names. The most popular are Old School Runescape (OSRS), Runescape 07 and 2007scape. Which is the right name to call the name? If so, other names should be disregard and shouldn’t be used anymore?…

Stop the War Between Runescape Games

Players of two games under one company or franchise like Old School Runescape and Runescape 3 would get along pretty well, right? Well, not in their case. Old School Runescape players usually bash on Runescape 3 for all sorts of reasons. The hating seems to pile up a lot recently. Why is this so? Shouldn’t they be getting along since they are just both Runescape games? RS 2007 Gold: Apology An Old School Runescape named wolfzwinkel posted in Reddit in relation to this topic: “I quit RS3 for OSRS 1 year ago after I finally maxed my account. I was…

Appreciate the Good in Runescape

It is easier to notice the faults in everything than appreciating what is good. It is much easier to hate the simplest of mistakes than complement the greatest of feat. This has been noticeable in our world today and in the digital world like in MMORPG’s. As this gets more and more frequent each day, the MMORPG community has been considered toxic by a lot of players. Old School Runescape Gold RS 2007 Gold: Voicing Out There are some people who have little threshold when it comes to toxicity in the community they belong to. It is either they quit…

Hacking Incident in Old School Runescape

The one thing an MMORPG player dislikes the most is getting his/her account hacked. Gaming companies try their best to keep their players’ accounts safe but these “evil masterminds” still find their way to steal login information. Old School Runescape for example. There is a player supposedly wanted to return but his account got hacked. Here’s his full story: Old School Runescape Account: Unfortunate Story by tooncow in Reddit “My Grandmother found an old laptop from a few years back, and she asked me to wipe the computer of everything so she could get rid of it.

Reasonable Botting in Old School Runescape?

Botting (the use of bots) in an MMORPG has always been an offense, most of the time, a major one. Game moderators watch for players who use this kind of “cheat” for whatever reason to impose the rules and regulations on them. Usually, one day or two days ban is the punishment  for first time offenders. And for those who likes to live dangerously and repeat on the major offense, permanent ban on their account is the sentence. Though this is considered as a bad act, is there any way that botting in an MMORPG is reasonable? Will there be…
