Runescape being one of the earliest MMOs from Sletrry's blog



Old School Runescape, the antiquated version of Runescape that still looks and plays like the match I snapped innumerable hours in to when I actually should have been studying, is getting a raid. Its next raid, as it occurs: The Theatre of OSRS buy gold.


A good raid requires good rewards, therefore when the Theatre of Blood was declared late last year, players were not able to find out what clearing the multi-man challenge could make them. Jagex reacted with Justicar armor, a brand new best-in-slot armor set (above). There was one small problem: players absolutely hated it.


In reality, they hated it so much , for months, the Old School community dogpiled the horn on the 2007scape subreddit and memed it into hell and back. They memed on it so hard that Jagex is currently completely altering the armor's design. Virtually all of Old School Runescape's updates undergo player polls, but that is the first time that the suit of armor was forged in a passion of memes.

The irony is that while players hated the'final' armor shown earlier this season, they adored the prototypes revealed when the raid was declared. Initially, the Justicar armor was bulkier and part of a trio of new armor sets, West tells me, but buy Runescape gold since the Theatre of Blood moved from obscure concept to actual content, the armor changed with it.

Participants said there was sufficient DPS equipment but insufficient tank gear, so it was narrowed down to just 1 armor set. And if they were only going to use one group, Jagex figured they might as well make a new one based on the armor worn by the raid's huge bad.
