"We work closely with communities"
This is the phrase used by Jmods loosely over the last few years on several live Q&A's.
There are many active communities that operate and exist for various reasons throughout OSRS. I am directly involved in the
largest, most active and longest standingto my knowledge, and have been for the past 12 years. The fact that this community has been running for 15 years while maintaining 500-1500 active participants across a minimum of 3 events per week is remarkable and to think they've done all of this with the very bare minimum of jagex intervention/help makes it even more impressive.
If you haven't guessed by now i am talking about the pure clanning scene. I didn't disclose the word "Pure" until this far in because it will no doubt deter a good portion of you reading this which has become obvious by any poll result targeted towards these accounts. This should not devalue the original paragraph, rather highlight that this community has also maintained such titles all be it with the majority of the mainstream community showing little respect to the scene.
I personally have only seen a JMOD reach out once over my 12 years and this was in game.
Mod Mat KAppeared in game to see why Fatality was not attacking Mayhem Makers during a Pure Clan Cup. Mayhem makers had 15-20 126 combat mains in their fall in which was pointed out to Mat, Where he replied with "Stop complaining and go". This was the final time Fatality chose to compete as it was clear how out of touch Jagex had become with their most successful community.
Every weekend over 500 players from various clans head to the wilderness, It's the same time and day it has been for the last 15 years. Great battles and rivalries have been forged over decades of activity within this scene and the fact that this isn't common knowledge is frightening.
