Still thinking it's funny how they can post on their twitter and not their own home page or even forums.


Yay, Jagex. This is so like you. :thumbsup:

remember them saying a while back that they had specific people that updated the home page, possible those people aren't there at the moment, and posting it on their forums would be worthless since they're down.

R.I.P. The olde nite. A legend is gone but not forgotten.

I'm glad I finally made a tip.it account, Jagex really seem to have messed up their entire site at the moment.


(currently trying to get on-line on RS client, Chrome, and on forums, all failing at the moment)


They probably cant add a main page message. I'm sure they would if they could.

Got these 2 messages from a clanmate in IRC. Been trying to verify them:


We have found that the root of the problem is a dedicated denial of service attack originating from a VPN. We are trying to find out who owns this and get it taken off the web. Please bare with us - Mod Knox


We have some response from our core hosting servers now, we should have 100% functionability within the next 30 minutes. As a result of the server crash we have regrettably had to rollback everyone who was online's account by 2 hours. This was the only way we could deal with a lingering issue cause with around 50% of the accounts when we got the servers back. Sorry for the inconvenience.

There ya go. Figured there would be an explanation.

It's not a crash. Jagex is carefully monitoring the amount of posts and "Users reading" threads on TIF and other fansites. They will then use this data to extrapolate the number of actual RS players, factoring things like time of day and week among other variables using a secret formula reminiscent of the ROW.


After reaching a final number, they assume that the remaining accounts are all "bots" and then arbitrarily pick a corresponding amount of accounts to ban. ;)


Nice theory.


I am personally betting on: check to hosting company lost in the mail or bounced

Hello again guys!! Were having issues with our core hosting providers they are looking into it but we still have no timeframe. We really appreciate your patience while we work to resolve this. :) ~Zach



Hello all, Many thanks for your patience!! A few people are able to log in but the experience will still not be good. We are still working on the fix. We are unable to send out a newspost at this time but will post on RuneScape.com when we are back up and running. ~Zach
