I don't see "unlinking" OSRS and RS3 accounts as being technically feasible considering the accounts are the one and the same in Jagex's network and architecture. It's all just one account that accesses everything from both game versions, to the forums, account settings, and other services, such as membership.

Your character & account info are more than likely saved in a database allocated for accounts and is connected to a server where that info can be accessed by individual servers for both game versions and other places like the forums and account settings, and as such, your "account" would be registered as a single entry in that database, just like everyone else.

Granting that OSRS and RS3 would both have their own individual account databases and therefore make your OSRS and RS3 accounts actually separate accounts (which would be an unnecessary amount of work), it would still have to be connected to some kind of master database for when any changes occur to your account so it would update both accordingly. However, even then, the servers wouldn't be able to understand how there could be 2 of you logged-in at the same time -- kinda like how you can't have two files both saved as "image.jpg" at once.

Take for example that you're able to send messages between both versions of the game on the same account. When I'm logged into RS3, I am logged in as Orcrist9, and when I'm logged into OSRS, I'm still Orcrist9, and I have the same account status, the same services rendered by Jagex, the same friend-list, ignore-list, FC, etc., etc..

Untangling the way all of that data is stored, accessed, and the ways in which it interacts in both games would be a massive undertaking even if it could be done, and even if it could, it just sounds like a lot of pain for a lot of nothing.

Your best bet is to just use separate accounts for both games, which is what a lot of players already do, and while it may not be ideal for you, it's just how it is.

I'd like to be able to play on RS3 and OSRS at the same time. Maybe just take our name and add "OSRS" on the end or something idk. Maybe even a "ghost" function, where your online status and all messages get sent to the version of the game that you aren't afking on.

As long as I can play both.


They'd certainly have to increase, double at least, the size of the friend-list and ignore-list if suddenly everyone has two characters with the same name they log-into and they're tagged as "RS3" and "OSRS." Not to mention FCs and CCs.

However, I also don't see that being handled very smoothly either. If you had a friend send you a message to your character in RS3, would you receive the same message in OSRS? If the individual characters were treated as separate accounts, the management of that would be nothing less than a mess, and that's just for the friend-list -- it'd be even worse in an FC and CC.

It's really not worth the effort when you can already create an individual account for both games and effectively do the same thing.
