Event details

For all those outside of those worlds of WoW and RuneScape, it may have appeared an odd turn of RS Gold events when the two games re-released what could be explained as old versions of themselves as standalone games. However, the figures clearly reveal why this was a fantastic move. And while'WoW Classic' doesn't beat out the Retail version, it will come close to a 50-50 split when it comes to active, everyday players.

Without these numbers it's easy to set the occurrence of those games down to pure nostalgia. However, with them, it is clear that there's a good deal more attracting players to these titles. So let us dive into why both old and new players are enjoying these old-school versions of two of their most legendary MMOs. Even though'OSRS' might have originated as a variant of this game as it had been back in 2007, it has not stayed that way. Rather,'OSRS' is a ever-updated game which keeps everything from the older 2007 era, while building out it with fresh upgrades, articles and events . What is more, is that this content is unique to'OSRS', not seeming 'RS3'.

This implies players are not simply jumping to an old sport, but right into a living-breathing MMO that has been offer up new experiences to its own players. The same is true for'WoW Classic' which, since its release in 2019, has also obtained numerous content updates since launch.

With both games hailing from the early 2000s and discharging waves upon waves of articles over the years, it is reasonable to say that from the mid 2010s these games were very different to their former selves. Whether that is because of feature bloat, power creep or balancing concerns is very much around players on a case-by-case basis, but the simple fact that these games had gotten so large is partly why fans wanted to return to Buy RuneScape Gold a more stripped back, elegant experience. While that, naturally, could be spurred on by a lot of nostalgia, it's a simple enough concept to understand for any participant that has returned to some title after several years.
