RS3 and OSRS are seperate games but their economies are tied because gp is allowed to be transferred between them.


That's completely nonsense. Using that logic you could say World of Warcraft and OSRS are linked because you can give someone WoW gold and they'll give you OSRS gold. Both forms of gold originate from their respective games. Whether it's allowed or not has no bearing on whether they are """linked""" or not. Yeah, you can trade OSRS gold for RS3 gold, but the gold in OSRS still came from OSRS, and the gold on RS3 still originates in RS3. No gold is being exchanged between the games, it's just trading hands on their original games.


When two players are EXCHANGING gold between 2 games, they are not just "giving" or "gifting" each other player gold. They are trading gold.

When two players are trading WoW gold for OSRS gp they are real world trading. It is not allowed per Jagex's EULA. You can't say they are just "giving" or "gifting" each other gold and gp.

However, it is not real world trading when a RS3 player trade gp for OSRS gp with an OSRS player because Jagex approves it.

Trading and "giving" or "gifting" are totally different things. :D:D:D

Whether or not jagex approves makes no difference, as the gold still originated in their respective games. The economies are not linked as no gold is actually transferred between games, it's merely changing hands in the games the gold came from.

RS3 players who get 9000 bil gp from TH can convert it to OSRS gp and be way way way way way ahead of OSRS players. It is an undeniable fact. :D:D:D

That is correct, but the RS3 economy is the one that will suffer inflation as a consequence. No OSRS gold is created as a consequence of RS3's MTX activities.


Who care about the economy or inflation if they are going to get a lot of gp from TH? They are not going to grind their gp. Economy doesn't bother them. They just get gp from TH and use them in both RS3 and OSRS to be better than the others. They pay to win in RS3 and also in OSRS. Good for them if that's what they care. :D:D:D

treasure hunter should be removed. they expect people to pay $12 a month for a game on life support with not many players and pay for microtransactions? jagex is literally insane at this point. dunno why i came back.

when i played in 2007 this game cost $5 and no one wasted my time with shady scams like treasure hunter lootboxes. you actually went out and played the game and got drops and earned stuff.

NO ONE LIKES LOOTBOXES gtfo jagex

I'm glad you recognize that aggressive MTX practices and short-sighted whales are damaging to the game and the economy. Good for you if that makes you happy.

Jagex should change the way they have the high score system

high score is almost pointless the way it is now because of TH.

No wonder OSRS are bitter about it maybe?

....

if I'm wrong someone correct me and tell me ORSR AND RS3 ARE not using the same high score .

No, other trust trading is allowed, but gold swapping is still not allowed to be organized on the forums.

See here Quick find code: 319-320-51-64255724
Which is still considered part of the forum rules.

You can also see here Quick find code: 94-95-486-65989354 for an example of the rule still being applied post forum rules changing.

Oh, my bad then.

OSRS and RS3 have separate hiscores on their respective websites, but like you said, RS3 hiscores are pretty much pointless because of TH. > )
