I propose that jagex look into the logistics of offering virtual tickets allowing people to view official streams of runefest with every panel streamed. It has been done by competitors (for example Blizzard's Virtual Ticket for Blizzcon). Since a lot of people don't live anywhere near england, it is too expensive to justify a trip for runefest alone. This is especially true for players like myself who come from across the ocean (I am currently located in western canada and as such the plane tickets alone make runefest out of reach).

I don't expect an immediate change to make virtual tickets available, due to magnitude of change but I would like jagex to at least look into the logistics to see if its feasible to add virtual tickets.

Also thanks to cloud computing this should be more in reach since, now-days it is easier to setup this type of infrastructure thanks to different Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon s3 making it so you don't need to buy and maintain physical servers anymore to get systems set up.

They stream everything via Twitch already, and I presume they keep the footage there for some days. Why pay for something that is already available for free? The Winner of September 2019's MUPAQ™ Award is

I guess since OP is refering to BlizzCon he wants an option to buy the cosmetics linked to it - since that is the motivation of the vast majority of players obtaining said virtual ticket


Oh. If that is the reason, OP should have mentioned that. It is something I can support.
