There are many Runescape 3 players that are formerly Old School Runescape players. It could be that OSRS got old for them that merited the transfer to Runescape 3 or they just found Runescape 3 more fun to play. Whatever the reason is, for sure, they enjoyed Old School Runescape as well. I would bet all of my OSRS gold that they did have fun in Old School Runescape.
OSRS Gold: Curious
For those who moved on to Runescape 3 and never looked back, they don’t know the reasons why people stuck on playing Old School Runescape. Like this guy posted in Old School Runescape Sub Reddit, he left OSRS for a reason and now plays Runescape 3. He is curious to what the reasons people stayed playing Old School Runescape that he posted this:
RS3 player here. I originated in OS, but switched to 3 mostly because the obsidian maul ruined lower level pking and I didn’t want to put in all the work to get to higher levels just to pk at all, skilling felt too slow, and not feeling any motivation to keep going. I’m curious what you personally like in OS that makes you play it over RS3. Pure nostalgia? More “rewarding” skilling? A bigger pking community? I’m genuinely curious.
Old School Runescape players just like how it is true to how it was back in 2007. The old system of combat plus the nostalgic feel of the game is a great plus for Old School Runescape players. The distinction of the two also in terms of the PvP and PvE aspects, OSRS players still love the Old School Runescape mechanics. It just all boils down to preference. No need to think about the reasons and compare the two games. To me, this just instigates hatred among the two and is completely unnecessary. I just still love farming my buy genuine cytotec in the u.s. in OSRS.
The comparisons between Old School Runescape and Runescape 3 will never end. So as long as both games are active, people will still be debating which is a better game. No, this not another “OSRS is better than RS3” or “RS3 is better than OSRS” write-up. This will be an honest comparison between Old School Runescape and Runescape 3. Actually more on comparing Old School Runescape to Runescape 3. For people who honestly don’t know anything about Runescape 3 because all we know is just farming Old School Runescape Gold.
Old School Runescape Gold: Honest Question
As an Old School Runescape (only) player, I am a bit curious about Runescape 3. Spending much time playing OSRS, I think it is about time I take a look at Runescape 3 and feed my curiosity. Like this guy in Reddit:
Hello, Im an OSRS player thats considering starting RS3 this weekend. What are the biggest differences between OSRS and RS3? I already know the obvious, like EOC, new skills, more quests, and changed map, but I want to know some of the other big differences that seperate it from OSRS. Also, how is the community? Im not asking you to say thats its better or worse than the OSRS community, I just wanna get a general idea.
This was a post by Purge2202 in the Runescape 3 sub-Reddit.
So, people have been answering actively to the post. Maybe to lure more OSRS players to Runescape 3? Nevertheless, their answers were helpful. One responded that the main difference between the games is that Runescape 3 is more of a PvM (Player Versus Monster) game while OSRS is more of a PvP game. This is a big deal since some players prefer PvP and some prefer playing the PvM / PvE content.
The answer to the question with regards to the community was very generic. Every game has those very kind people and those very toxic. So nothing really different to the OSRS community.
There was a final part on how to earn bond / subscription through in-game gold like buy real cytotec in Runescape 3. I didn’t include it since I don’t think it is really a big deal or a decision changer for anyone considering playing Runescape 3 coming from OSRS.
