As the developer blog notes, while melee and range users have […]

Old School RuneScape Introduces Taxes On Duel Arena

If Jagex isn’t careful, they’re going to have players throwing tea into Port Sarim. The only guarantees of life in RuneScape are death and, apparently now taxes. This week’s update to Old School sees the implementation of several changes to combat real money trading, and the main headliner is the inclusion of taxes on duels. […]

In 2004, RuneScape […]

Diaries From RuneScape: Old School Mobile Beta

I went into Old School RuneScape’s mobile beta with two questions in mind: How well this game would run on my Google Pixel (original, non XL), how well it would perform in my office which is a lead-wrapped dead zone, and how many seconds it would take my Pixel to be drained of its battery. […]

This Week’s Update Killed Old School RuneScape’s Economy, So Jagex Rolled It Back

An unfortunate oversight in this week’s update allowed players to turn various items into fat stacks of cash upon death. As you can […]

Beta Perspective: OldSchool RuneScape Mobile Weirdness

As MMO Fallout’s official only staffer and the internet’s number one games journalist, I’ve seen a lot. Betas, alphas, pre-alphas, day one patches, you name it. Last year I reviewed to rather poor reception the pre-release build of Shadow of War, and while the preview was condemned as “tone deaf” and “stupid,” I came out […]
