RuneScape gold is, basically, a snapshot of RuneScape as it originally released in 2001. That first version has observed two major revisions in the years since, also as (slightly confusingly) the coming of Old School RuneScape - a variant of the game much more or less as it had been at 2007.

It is no longer updated or officially supported by the developer, but access is still allowed to certain players.

In its article announcing RuneScape Classic's closure, Jagex explained that"It has been amazing to see such devotion amongst those of you who have kept playing RuneScape Classic over the past couple of years [...] But it's not all fun and games.

"With advancements in technology helping to more support both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape, our resources are no longer compatible with Classic. This is particularly a problem with our community security and macro detection applications. The game is now easily abused with the usage of 3rd party macro tools, and botting is getting cheap RS gold a growing issue."

Worse still, states Jagex, is the fact that it"can no longer offer long term service reliability due to the rising risk of unrecoverable game breaking bugs". These bugs, it stresses, can't be repaired"because of the unsupported nature of the match".
