Interesting to hear they still are looking to OSRS Gold develop a new RuneScape. As I see it, RuneScape 2 was great for me, because it was a game you could play on any PC and you could effortlessly multi-task, and it had a simple yet complex scope to it.
RuneScape is currently a completely different game for me due to the zero-trade/no-PVP focus in 2007. It's a diluted MMORPG that tries to be something more than it actually is.
If RuneScape was similar to the game prior to the Grand Exchange, I would have played it in a variety of ways while watching TV and other similar programs. The developers sacrificed the things I enjoyed in favor of making the game better, and it was no longer my thing. In a way, I could still like OSRS if I returned to it.
My issue is that I'd have to start from scratch and it's a pain for a player who was active during OSRS days and I was unable to transfer my account into OSRS.
I was scared of doing the same however, after I began Skilling a little I got hooked again. I quit on the release day of RS3 and I haven't logged into rs3. I do have a Max combat Account with a few other 99s. So I am a bit hurt by having to Buy RS Gold start over in 07 again however, at the same time it's almost nostalgic, and I get that Rush getting level again.
