Old school runescape is Jagex’s official term for a previous version of the runescape that was introduced from a backup of the Runescape source code as it has been on 10August 2007.
This version of the game was announced in a news post on 13 February 2013, which was followed by the opening of a poll to determine community interest on 15 February 2013. The poll, which ended 1 March 2013, decided, among other things, whether an additional membership fee would be charged for access to the game.
The poll ended at 00:00 UTC on Friday 1 March 2013. The final tally of votes was 449,351. Though 500,000 votes are needed to allow no additional membership fee, Jagex stated that the first six months of Old School RuneScape will not have any additional charge. Jagex will review this again in September; if the community is still growing and active by then, then it will remain free.
Despite it having originally been stated that servers would take one to two months to be opened following a successful poll, on 22 February 2013 as part of an Early Access scheme Jagex opened over 50 Old School RuneScape servers and gave a month of free Old School RuneScape membership credit to it to all of those who had voted in the poll. The game quickly saw player counts equalling those of the main version of the game, which has since been labeled “EoC Scape” by the community in order to distinguish it.
Old School RuneScape works similarly to RuneScape Classic in that it can be played with the same account that one plays the main version of the game; yet stats, items and quests are separate and non-transferable. All players regardless of achievements in other versions of the game begin Old School RuneScape on tutorial island with a blank character. As a result, an economy and money supply has had to emerge from nothing since release.
