On Monday, when the weekly update hits, the Runescape Legacy community will suffer a terrible blow. World 115, unofficially known as the capitol of the Legacy community and home of the most active Legacy clans, will be made an EoC world dedicated to Elite Dungeons.

This is being done despite the fact that there are several pre-existing EoC worlds not dedicated to any particular activity, notably Worlds 53, 103, and 117. Any of these worlds would be perfectly suitable for conversion into an Elite Dungeons world, and yet Jagex has chosen to remove one of the great pillars of the Legacy community.

It's true that the Legacy community is a minority of the RS3 playerbase, but I doubt that there is near as much passion in any other community of the game. I fully expect that if this change happens, a huge part of that passion will evaporate, and the game as a whole will suffer for it. Moreover, I guarantee that there will be account deletions because of this, and Jagex will be forced to introduce even more microtransactions in order to maintain their income. This will accelerate the slow poisoning of the game.

I beg you Jagex, please don't do this to us. 115 is our home. Let us keep it.

I highly doubt it will have as big an impact as you imply. There are other Legacy servers. I don't see why people would cease playing the game due to a change in the intended function of a singular world. I don't see Jagex needing to crank up microtransactions even further as a result of an extremely small number of players rage quitting. It doesn't make a lick of sense. You're making all of this up in an effort to get what you want.

Again, there are other Legacy servers. Move to one of those.

To make things crystal clear, I neither support nor oppose this as it does not affect me or any other player in any positive or negative way. I just don't like blatant lies and exaggerations.

Yeah, then there's no problem using a world like 14? Enough of your eoc biases, world 97 is a bounty hunter world and that's not an extra option and then there'd only be 2 other worlds. And you eoc elitists are the real vocal minority, you spoiled kids think everything revolves around you and jagex should only cater to you, that's why rs3 is dying and jagex are living off of oldschool runescape. There are many other types of us servers both eastcoast and westcoast for jagex to use, this is bad biases and you eoc people have more than enough, this is your main game already and it's already killed off the community as is, no need to do more.

Your argument countered to ours is just using logic that is more easily routed back onto you into favour of our statements. Imagine if 1/4th-1/3rd of EoC worlds were taken away, how would it affect your guys' gameplay? Imagine that for a minute and be logical. We have 4 members worlds as is, as Scolrax has stated; 1 of which is Bounty Hunter so it is not a full world or even close, we actually have only 3 Legacy members worlds. Taking 115 is taking 1/3rd of our space, 1/3rd of our availability, cramping the space that we do have. On top of that, it is well known to the Jagex staff that 115 is our, and most of Legacy's Home world. That is just a slap in the face to us.

Shauny think about what you are doing.

Peaky, think before you say things. You're terrible at making points. <3

I think Legacy should have a good selection of servers. Getting rid of that is not very positive.

As others have stated: There are other, non-labeled worlds, and the ability to dual-purpose worlds, so it should prioritise using those, 1st.

----------------
It's incorrect, though, to state that OSRS carries RS3, in terms of revenue. It generates a lot less money for them, though that is slowly growing (it is likely to be around 2/3 of the amount RS3 makes, this Year). There is no direct analysis of the costs for each game, individually, so it's difficult to make precise comments on such things. Hopefully they both continue to grow.


The exact revenue for each game is a little inaccurately portrayed, on the financial statement, as the sums given in the breakdown of the two games (53m RS3, 32m OSRS) add up to more than the overall revenue (84.9m), which should also include other products that JAGEX owns, and operates (Planetarion, and - back in 2017, Chronicle & Classic), that would surely be counted separately?


The main issue facing the game, is that the current owners invested a lot of money in buying JAGEX, and so are looking for a return on that; they have therefore set high targets for the company's turnover, and will expect that to be met. I am not saying they are wrong to do so, just that it will have an impact, if you take 85% of the post-tax profit, as dividends, when previously it was nowhere near that.

Just hop to a different legacy world. Ur lucky enough they added legacy back in 2014 and they buffed the dps over a year ago now. The game isn't going to die because 1 legacy will be changed.

The hell are you on about?! I'm an elitist now? HUH?! Because I called someone out for making hyberbolic statements to serve their own agenda? Look, I'm not against Legacy; I actually think it is better than EoC for new and returning players, and fine for casuals. EoC has more potential, but it is much more complicated and thus understandably confusing for some. Also, what bias? I already said I am neither for nor against. If Jagex changes their mind, great! You keep your homeworld! Cool! If not, well, it sucks, but that's how the cookie crumbles. I only posted because OP lied.

Also, you yourself said there are two other Legacy servers you could use. Why not use those? Sure, it sucks when Jagex changes the functions of various worlds, but it happens. When they changed my F2P homeworld to P2P(I was F2P at the time), I was bummed, but I didn't rage about it, and I certainly didn't blame anyone for it. When that happened, many F2P players were displaced and had to find new homeworlds. They were split up, because they weren't a strong community, like yours is. You'll be fine, your community can handle migrating onto another server. It isn't difficult. Sure, there are other options for Jagex, but even if I supported this, it wouldn't change their decision. You'll have to adapt.
