a theory on why Jagex doesn't fully shut down RSC

Recommended Posts

It seems that Jagex is trying really hard to kill RS Classic, but hasn't actually shut down the game.

 

 

 

I think I may know why. I vaguely remember that when EA's game Earth & Beyond shut down, I read about a law such that it would be legal to emulate an online service if it has been shut down completely.

 

 

 

I'm not sure if there is such a law, but if there is, it may explain why Jagex doesn't shut down Classic. Although RSC is nearly dead, it is still legally active, so it would be illegal to emulate (create private servers of) it. However, if Jagex shut down the game, then it would be legally dead, and thus legal to create private servers.

 

 

 

Since Jagex does not want people to create private servers for RS Classic, it still keeps the game "alive." Thus, Jagex pushes RSC to the point of death but doesn't actually kill it.

More than likely, it was obvious from day 1 that Jagex's real competition for Rs2 was itself (Rsc) that's why they actively tried to have people quit in a number of different ways:

 

 

 

No highscores

 

No new updates

 

No banning autoers

 

Fewer Servers

 

Inactivity ban/wipe

 

 

 

Personally i've always believed Rsc to be the better game anyway, i see nothing but flaws in Rs2 :-#


Whiterob10 was better then zorro for sure :P

i have to go with adx on this one i have unconventional love for rsc whereas rs2 is whatr i play merely because i knew rsc would get, if not killed, than majorly wounded from the moment they launched rs2 for real.

 

 

 

but if you search for private servers you'll find tons already, illegal or not.

There are currently many RSC private servers, one is even claimed to be almost perfect copy of RSC. (RSCdaemon)

 

Thanks for pointing out this theory, it can be very likely true.

if it attracts a diffrent crowd of people, they won't.... besides there is a diffrence between "upgrading" something to a newer version, then slowely letting go of the other AND setting up a whole new diffrent game...

It's maybe better JAGeX keeps classic ran just for the sake of it. If they sell it, a little of the magic of classic will be gone. Yes, it will be possible to PK etc like in the early days, but will it be as fun? I don't think so.

when they were making runescape 2, they promised to keep the old runescape for people to play. i just assumed they kept it as runescape classic because of their promise. gowers are nice people.

sounds logical to me. imo there are still 2.000+ people who would love to play old runescape classic and would be willing to pay. I do not understand why Jagex let 10k bucks per months go down the drain ... :wall:

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the game was called RS Daemon. I wish Jagex would do something about those. I know a really big one that the Tip.It admins won't let you say (it'll just get replaced with "[Forbidin cheat site]"), but I'll tell you that it's probably the biggest one around and it even lets you create your own server.

rsc was a great game, i loved the way certain items looked. however rs2 has a huge advantage and that is u get exp in the middle of fights, each hit in rsc u got exp after u killed teh guy. id say yuor theory is pretty correct. i see nothing wrong with private servers, look at WOW (world of warcraft) lots of ppl have pirvate servers. they ahve fun with them. jagex doesnt like that or account sharing which is very common in WOW. account sharing i never really understand what they have against that

Errr...

 

 

 

NO.

 

 

 

Read this article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7090490.stm

 

 

 

Dedicated fans need not worry though as, said Mr Iddison, Runescape will be the main investment focus for Jagex for the next five years.

Ah, this reminds me about the noob on the Runescape forums who was upset with the quest "Cold War" because apparently his grandparents died in the war. :wall:

Quite possible.

 

 

 

Stork was forced to shut his server down by lawyers, same with RSCD.

 

 

 

In my opinion, private servers only help runescape, since most of them are so terrible.

 

 

 

And to llamster, they are coming out with a new set of games, but are only single player. Runescape will surely go on for years to come.
