The RuneScape team has announced that voting in the most recent poll has closed with over 440,000 subscribers taking part in just over two weeks' time. The poll asked players if they would be interested in an 'old school' server that would bring back the 2007 version of RuneScape. The response? An overwhelming "YES".
“Although this is only a fraction of the overall RuneScape membership, it’s incredible to see how such large numbers of our community are prepared to mobilize for issues they are passionate about,” said Phil Mansell, RuneScape’s Executive Producer. “It was clear very early on that there was a dedicated movement in our community for this project. We can therefore commit to the promise that the future of these servers are secured and their updates will be left entirely in the hands of our community to decide. We’ll be holding regular content polls which will allow them to help shape and direct which content or fixes they want implemented into the game.”
