Does anybody else here find it odd how we have Runescape 2 aka Old School Runescape, and we have Runescape 3, but we don't have Runescape 1 anymore? I don't know about you guys but I would love to see Runescape Classic come back someday even if Jagex has to put bonds in it for it to return. Am I crazy for thinking this? ^_^

It is quite weird. It's even weirder that Jagex would shut down Classic and completely kill off people's almost 2 decade long characters. By weird, I of course mean pathetic. It's a new low for Jagex. But given how they don't have a support email; it's pretty clear they don't care about their players. It's sad where Jagex is at, but they've done it to themselves. Hope they enjoy rolling in their piles of dirty money.

Oh don't worry. They most definitely do.

Obvious troll is obvious.

being honest now trolling? agree with everything here. no reason to shut down classic, thing probably cost less than $5 to run. probably a PR stunt since they realized everyone was botting on it and they rather shut off than actually solve issue

The reason to shut down classic is that it still interfaced with the modern backend systems, the friend list, account login, etc, and thus had the impact of making upgrades to those systems harder because they'd all have to be classic compatible or classic would need patching.

Or, they chose to remove the problem.

Hardly anyone played RuneScape classic anymore, so it wasn't worth keeping servers running with it. Nothing weird about it, just business 101.

And OSRS has nothing to do with RuneScape 2, it's been evolved and made into something wildly different now.

You'd still be patching the abstraction layer. You are always at some point ensuring compatability with Classic until Classic is removed entirely, and for the 100 odd bots and one legitimate user a year who might play it, what's the real benefit.
