RuneFest 2014 "Most Successful to Date" -

The folks at Jagex are doing a happy dance right about now, since the successful completion of London's RuneFest 2014. Since its 2010 start, the event has been getting bigger and bigger.

Jane Ryan, community and events director at Jagex, said: "RuneFest has been building in scope and scale since the inaugural event in 2010, so we’re thrilled that this year we delivered the biggest and most successful RuneScape fan convention yet! In addition to the fantastic reception we received from our fans at the Tobacco Dock itself, it was great to see that many thousands more took part online through Twitch, Twitter, and other social media channels."

Highlights of the event included:

  • Reveal of Chronicle: RuneScape Legends, a new multi-platform CCG due for a 2015 release
  • RuneLabs - part of the player iniative Player Power, it invites players to submit and campaign for their favorite new feature ideas
  • Two Twitch livestreams featuring a 10% peak concurrency growth over 2013
  • 2000 #RuneFest tweets that enjoyed a 1.7 million person readership
  • A broad use of RuneScape bonds - 40% of attendees bought their tickets with in-game wealth and some were able to use bonds to pay for their travel and accommodations.
