Year of the Upgrade: It Begins

Posted by Keith Cross on Jan 14, 2009  | Comments

Year of the Upgrade: It Begins - Runescape -

The folks behind Runscape had previously announced this year as the year of the upgrade, meaning they would be focusing less of flashy additions and more on fixing less glamorous bugs and systems. In that spirit, they kick off the year of the upgrade with a logout timer increase, chat filter tweaks, and more.

With this update we officially launch the RuneScape Upgrade Year! Today, we are bringing you three changes to different parts of the game.

Firstly, the logout timer has been increased from ninety seconds to five minutes. This means that you will not be automatically logged out before this amount of time has passed – particularly useful when you want to check the forums or the Game Guide while training combat or chopping down trees. The only exception to this is if you lose connection; if this happens, you will be automatically logged out after 30 seconds as usual (or after 60 seconds if you lose connection during combat). Make sure you stay on the watch for random events, and for other players who want to talk to you.
