You can no longer play old-school Runescape, according to new figures.
Runescape servers have stopped functioning for many users, with some experiencing “excessive lag” and other issues.
The game is not working in the west, where the new versions of the game are still available.
Users in Europe and Australia are also reporting issues.
A recent patch fixed some issues, including “some lag issues” but not the rest of the world.
“A large number of users in the EU, the Americas, Australia, New Zealand and the United States are reporting some sort of lag issue,” says Runescape Community Manager John Smedley.
Players can play on the old-style Runescape network but there is no access to it on the new-style one. “
We’ll be doing a patch tomorrow, and hopefully with that patch, we’ll be able to fix all of these issues.”
Players can play on the old-style Runescape network but there is no access to it on the new-style one.
“I’m really excited to see how it plays out.
I’m a huge Runescape fan, but I’m just not seeing much in terms of improvement for me,” says David.
“It’s not a bad game, but there’s still a lot of room for improvement.”
Players who want to continue playing on the older version of the network have to switch over to the new version.
“Players are now required to switch from their old version to the brand new Runescape server, which is now running on the same hardware,” says Smedleys.
There’s no word yet on whether the new Runescapes will be released as a standalone game or as part of a larger expansion pack. “
As for the lag issue, it seems to have been a little bit of an issue in the past, but now that the new servers are up and running, it’s less of an annoyance.”
There’s no word yet on whether the new Runescapes will be released as a standalone game or as part of a larger expansion pack.
The new Runscapes will run on a custom version of Runescape that’s “more of a modern version of what Runescape used to be”, says Shedler.
The older versions of Runescames were also available on a subscription basis, which allowed players to keep the game’s main content.
Runescape is the biggest free-to-play game in the world and was launched in 2005.
It’s now sold in more than 100 countries.
The latest versions of RuneScape, which are available on the Nintendo 3DS and PC, have been downloaded more than 20 million times, and have been played by millions of people.
Runscape is still sold on the console.
