Yea, both the official RS3 twitter and Mod Shauny's twitter said this, but on the forums/RS home page... nothing.

Nah, I think they just want to release yet another "huge patch week! we removed one tree from the morytania swamp. it is now easier to take screenshots in that area. nothing else new to add this week apart from that huge mtx promotion which-" while classic wow is released and steals half of the player base.

Did i think it or did i say it? woooopsie!

You'll get it when you deserve it.

I am not a Brit but it seems like it is nice to work in UK as there are a lot of holidays.

I am curious what a Summer Bank Holiday has to do with the UK video game companies though... Perhaps UK game developers have a Banker's Hours work schedule too? :P

What the hell is the Summer Bank Holiday?

It even has parts people PAY to access. Can you imagine that ?
It's too late. You've awakened the gazebo.

Bank holiday is the term in the UK for the public holidays most countries get. The USA has more of them than the UK; in fact, most countries have more public holidays than the UK. The vast majority of companies observe the bank holidays in the UK although some work through them (especially shops and public services).

So, if you're not from the UK, maybe don't choose to come here and have fewer public holidays (although most companies do give their staff at least 4 weeks annual leave!)

I'd be very surprised if Jagex didn't close for the day given that they are based in the UK.

What the hell is a Summer Bank Holiday? Why is it observed in the UK?

It's the same as any other Bank Holiday except it's in the Summer. The name kind of gives it away.

I don't know where you're from but why is 2nd September called Labor Day in the US? Or 14th July called Bastille Day in France?

We also have Spring Bank Holiday and May Day, again, the names make it a bit obvious what and when they are.

As to why it's observed, it's historical and comes from the banks originally. We have a lot of history in the UK ;)
