Old School RuneScape Ends Partnership Polls Early Due To Microtransaction Backlash

Old School RuneScape Ends Partnership Polls Early Due To Microtransaction Backlash

Old School RuneScape (OSRS), an MMORPG title that started almost two years ago, has closed a community survey which was voting on the execution of"Partnerships." In essence, Partnerships revolve around the concept that some new items and features would first become accessible to"Partners" of Old School RuneScape, before being released to the general populace.


Once the promotional event had finished, then they allowed all players to use the pigment. The RuneScape community didn't like the notion back then, and they don't enjoy it today. A subreddit dedicated to RS Gold has slammed the notion repeatedly over the last week. Many users are claiming that this brings the game one step closer to getting full blown microtransactions. Other people view this as"microtransactions via a third party," since players that have paid to be spouses with a different firm are rewarded with exclusive products.


Thankfully Jagex, the developers of OSRS, have stated they won't include any new content to the game without first polling the community. This is accomplished with an in-game voting booth in which members can throw their virtual ballots. Thanks to this voting system, the majority of the community is happy with any adjustments made to the game that is nostalgic. The survey was set to close on Monday the 8th, however early polling results were negative Jagex made a decision to shut the stalls early. An official statement from the provider indicates that not only were the polls exceptionally one-sided, however, the general hatred around the subject forced them to leave the idea. They say they had been in no way attempting to add microtransactions into the match and are disappointed that the neighborhood thought they would do anything.


Of course, they did precisely that using Runescape 3, a move which many assert stunted the development of the name. OSRS is a Free to Perform title, but it offers a monthly subscription which adds hundreds of hours of additional content. The fact that any type of monetization was being discussed while the name already contains a monthly subscription was probably the cause of such a backlash in the community.


Update: Jagex has issued an announcement stating that no credit card or banking data was dropped as a result of the breach. "Further to yesterday's statement, we can confirm that none of our players' bank or card details were compromised," it said. "We operate with an industry-respected, fully compliant third-party payment processor, to purposefully avoid staff having access to players' full card or bank details. This also applies when players decide to store their information at payment period for any future purchases. Jagex undergoes routine, third party testing to OSRS Buy Gold ensure we maintain the highest security standards."
