Be aware that this will not be Old School RuneScape

  • Be aware that this will not be Old School RuneScape, a version of RuneScape Gold the game based on a version from 2007. The game has been available for download in iOS and Android since the year 2018. It's the complete RuneScape that Jagex has been continuously in the last 20 years.

    There's no doubt that there's a demand for RuneScape available on iOS as well as Android. There are more than 1.8 million players pre-registered to play the games with a mobile-friendly user interface with new menus, icons, text and textures. Combat mechanics have been adjusted to work on iOS in addition to Android.

    The company has filed two trademarks in the UK, one with the title "OSRS Gold" and the other to "RS Gold" and noting that the company has registered the use of the terms as words. This could prevent third-party websites from being allowed to claim that they sell RS Gold.

    A cursory Google search of any of these terms yields hundreds of websites, some of which have one of the terms in their URLs. They offer currency in RuneScape that can be exchanged for real money.

    This was in response to the announcement on October 13 that Jagex has put an end in "real-world trading". In a blog post posted to their website "The RuneScape Team" explained that "gold purchased through RWT real-world trading is a problem in any online game with a tradeable currency."

    Jagex says it will begin sending "messages to those who we've identified as being involved with the RWT" within "the coming hours". "For those who have been involved, we want to be OSRS Gold Buy clear - this is your single und only caution," it added.
