Has it been banned in Belgium yet? Considering their laws in lootboxes/gambling in games?


Of course not, neither are Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and Baby Troll banned there. :D

Perhaps Belgium may ban OSRS for Duel Arena Staking via 3rd party sites later. Not quite sure if they will also put Santa Claus, Easter Bunny or Baby Troll in Purple Skin behind bars though. :D

China? North-Korea?
China contributed to 30% of Jagex's membership revenue over the past 10 years.

North Korea on the other hand is a bit different. Internet access essentially doesn't exist in NK unless you're either a foreigner or a government official. You probably could play it if you were touring NK, but they'd undoubtedly be watching your every move.


LOL! Runescape is not even approved to be operated in China yet. How is it going to be banned?

Chinese firewall still exists, and all we gotta say is Tiananmen Square 1989 and oh look this forum post mysteriously doesn't load in China anymore.

Come@me Winnie the Pooh.


To be extremely honest, if Runescape was approved to run in China, these RSOF would not last long as their Government has very low tolerance against toxicity and misinformation, particularly such comments regarding politics and violence.

If it was I should be in prison now...

I'm not sure if TH falls under the lootboxes because we can see what we can win every time (except suring some events) with their chances of winning it (plus we can freeze some prizes) whereas lootboxes are completely random and unknown.


TH chests are loot boxes but only a very very tiny samples of loot boxes are not OK in Belgium. Mainly, they (or more precisely just the Commissioner of the BGC and one Minster of Culture) targeted a few companies with excessive advertising efforts on loot boxes.. like they said using a superstar celebrity like Cristiano Ronaldo as their spokesman was not OK for EA but Pokeman is fine perhaps because Pikachu is not famous enough?

Princess Alice is just a humble pixel girl nobody even knows outside Runescape, and Jagex doesn't even show her face. Definitely no issue with TH, even in Belgium. :)
