Runescape 3 came 20th of november last year, dunno what are they talking about. Glad I can keep playing Rs2 :)

I wonder when jagex actually realizes that updates like this, actually kills the game.


Only one thing sealed the fate of the game, and that was it's beginning. Now stop it with the RS IS GOING TO DIE IT'S KILLING THE GAME etc bullshit please.
Every update is killing the game. Miniclip was the end of Runescape, remember?


Face the facts, 07 version (which has less shit updates) has more players than `13 version, that tells you something doesn't it?


Except it doesn't
http://www.misplaced.../2007online.php
Online user data scrapes for both games clearly shows they have been running around 50:50 (with 07 mostly slightly behind) until the past day or so where 07scape has gone much lower.

So how about you face real numerical facts rather than making up BS 'fact' claims.


I was about to post the link that you posted after I saw 100's nonsensical fantasy claim. He can safely crawl back under his bridge now.

All the major browsers support HTML5, plus they'll have their own Jagex client.

Just to correct an assumption I saw saying only Chrome supports HTML5.

To different extents though. Probably enough to run RS I would assume. http://html5test.com...ts/desktop.html

That assumption was based on what we got told when they released the new bestiary, which would only run on Chrome. I don't know about any others, but Firefox 19 currently has HTML5 support. I'm sure that by the time RS3 goes live we should be able to use any browser we want.

This is likely due to a quality assurance thing where they disable support in non-chrome browsers. That or each browser implements some things differently (Firefox can be notorious for doing this sometimes). Probably Jagex only tested bestiary in Chrome. That or they simply haven't coded in work-arounds for the other browsers that don't support features in exactly the same way and the bestiary breaks due to this.

There are different implementations of the local storage though so Chrome might be the only browser on release.

They mentioned there was some HTML5 related bug in Firefox, and until that was fixed, they'd only use Chrome for HTML5 content.

What a brilliant upcoming update. With the EOC, the recent grandmaster and addition of the newest bosses, the past year has been brilliant for Runescape, and now this just tops it all.

No I'm not trolling.

Basically, it sounds very interesting, I just hope it isn't basically RuneScape 2.75, given that we've already had RS2 and RS2.5 (HD - high detail).

What I'm trying to say is, in my opinion, if it's just a graphical overhaul, it doesn't deserve to be named "RuneScape 3", personally though, I think it's going to be what I've just stated, seeing as their Transformers game is HTML5 compliant as well.

But the number iterations aren't necessarily all about what you can see at all - they are entirely about the backend engine.

Rs1 > Rs2 Was about a rewrite to support true 3D
Rs2 > Rs3 Is about opening up the mobile market, optimising and brining in many other things like better drawn distances, better rendering, customisable interfaces.

The visual changes are gonna be a minor icing on the cake to what the back end change makes feasible.

I've played since 2003. This update excites me more than any other. Roll on HTML5, and roll on better quest story lines.

EDIT: Just read up, I'm amazed at how [bleep]ing pessimistic some players are. Jagex make mistakes, of course. I'd like to see you do [bleep]ing better.

~peace

I also started that year. After EOC being considered the biggest update, i am excited to hear more on how RS3 will be. How different it would look, aside from even more interface changes, if there are.

I was brand new at the time, so I don't recall - did they call the first conversion 'RS2' in the beta? I highly doubt they'll end up calling it RS3. Likely just Runescape, old school Runescape, and Runescape classic.

Looks awesome though.


Yes Runescape 2 was what is was called in development and beta. How it went:
Runescape
Runescape + Runescape 2 beta
Runescape Classic + Runescape.

So basically this will be rs3 right up until release at which point it'll simply be Runescape.

Damn i had finally got a PC that could run Runescape on max settings and now there is a chance with this update that it will no longer be the case.... This does look to be a pretty great update. Touching on some of that quest talk, I myself have like 100 quests to do now just to catch up , so many that i put off doing them and more slowly pile up....


This overhaul should not raise system reqs at all, if anything it'll make it easier to run on all but the older systems.

Thank you. Kaida is right, I was going off that assumption and being told eariler that Firefox had a bug that they couldn't fix. I swear you guys know all I need to know for computers. I should hit you all up more. :P

Looks like we saw the first of a few live updates where they roll out parts of the new HTML5 engine. Mod Chris E just put up a sticky on Recent Updates.


Hi everyone,

Sorry for the inconvenience of logging you all out - we're doing some under-the-hood maintenance to the game engine to get it ready for some big updates related to RS3 & HTML5. Hopefully you won't notice much difference on the Java client at the moment, but if you do notice something awry, please submit a bug report in the usual way.

It's likely we'll need to do one more update this evening to get everything straightened out.

Mod Chris E and Mod Philip

I wonder if we are going to have a 'live beta' of sorts.
Eg the beta is still the live game just with the alternate engine running it - would certainly wrack up much more play time as everyone with access could just do their day-to-day RSing

Really excited for this. I also recall Jagex saying they were going to make RuneScape pluginable so that players could write and design their own plugins. I wonder if this will play a part in that. Ofc, I can't wait! :D.

Here's a wild guess. New skills will be released with RS 3 as they're heavily involved with how the gameplay works there.

An API system for plugins would be awesome, especially if it offered simple, automated ways to sync data between users.
Obviously applications right there to upgrade the DGS team functions - no faff automatic via rs output.
Plus would offer potential for many other things like pyramid plunder doors applet, fish flingers bait applet etc. where data can be shared to users on same world.

Could even have uses for fansites/external apps if it could provide data like GE offer status, GE prices, port status, live xp etc.
EG you log in tot tip.it calcs via a Jagex-made login api then they can retrieve your account data directly.

and then we decide they are stupid and eliminate java use because we are the java gaming experts (Jagex)".

You DO know that ever since 2010, the name stood for "Just About the Game EXperience"?
