0s the total value of items in game as of
3s today is 164 trillion 57 billion 98 mil
15s 467,000 since the beginning of old
18s school RuneScape as we know it and like
20s an overseason roast dinner that's a lot
22s of time today we'll be tuning back to
24s clock and looking back at the biggest
26s updates and achievements in those 11
28s years after almost 450 ,000 players
31s voted to bring back RuneScape in its
33s 2007 vanilla form old school RuneScape
35s was born on the 22nd of Feb 2013 fish
38s were fished logs were burnt queens were
41s dethroned and those gnomes that hang
42s around right next to the gnome strong
44s called Bank were accidentally killed oh
46s sorry but that was only the foundation
48s and the update started to come like me
50s with a stamina pot thick and
52s fast we got to watch Bona obtain
55s arguably the most clutch fire Cape of
57s all time managing to complete it whilst
59s flicking his War remaining PR point that
61s was literally nuts back in the day
63s October 2013 saw the first real big pvm
66s update with the introduction of the god
67s Wars dungeon this came out with a whole
69s range of new best in slot gear godswords
72s the armadil crossbow band's boots boots
75s of all the armor and you mentioned the
76s boots Dave yeah the boots well what the
79s the chest plate or literally the nicest
80s legs in the game the tassets it really
82s what what about the boots there are so
84s many better drops you can get than the
85s boot all right the steam battle stuff
87s then oh my God are
89s you
93s in 2014 a ton of new bosses were added
95s to the game bringing even more exciting
97s loot for you guys to obtain I guess you
99s could say as the Millennials would put
100s it the old school team eight which is
103s conveniently the number of tentacles on
105s the new Slayer monster the Kraken the
107s offer plays the ability to obtain the
109s Trident of the Seas and enter the bone
111s whip no enter the Kraken whip attach the
114s Kraken tentacle to your traditional Whip
116s and you're left with a beast of a weapon
118s and speaking of Beast the corporate
120s Beast was also released bringing all
122s variants of the spirit Shield to the
124s table which would leave most players
126s drinking Spirits at the table as a long
128s kill times coupled with the difficulty
130s made the shields rare rare rare what's
132s that over there there there oh I don't
134s know jenton is that arguably one of the
136s biggest updates to come to old school
137s RuneScape I think it is in October 2014
140s IMA mode was released allowing players
142s to play the game on their own
144s self-sufficiently the game mode was
145s popularized by B's notorious onean Army
148s series prior to becoming an official
150s game mode which to this date stands a
151s test of time as one of the best old scre
153s Escape series ever made did you ever a
155s fancy play in an IM man yeah but the gr
157s for some of the items really put me off
159s like a rune crossbow all you've got to
160s do is get 69 flexing but obviously you
162s need to get uog so you may as well get
163s the W quitting level or or maybe do some
164s wintert but then actually you might need
166s the supplies to get 69 flection so you
167s might as well W cut anyway or or just
169s wait until you get your kingdom done or
170s or kill the
174s crazy 2015 was another year of huge
177s updates the release of the grand
179s exchange allowed players to purchase
180s items without needing to trade other
182s players directly and it's more discreet
184s discreet why does it need to be discreet
187s so people don't know what you buying are
189s you all right why does it
191s matter oh you must be talking about
193s bonds which were another addition in
195s 2015 Players could purchase bonds with
197s real money which could in turn be used
199s for membership or sold on theground
201s Exchange it also allowed players to
203s purchase these bonds with their own GP
205s saving them precious real life money
207s which is 100% what I would use it for
209s yep definitely wouldn't be buying bonds
211s to sell on G for currency wouldn't catch
214s me doing that no sir who could do such a
217s thing speaking of GP in 2023 a total of
219s 18 trillion 525 billion 16,
225s 49351 GP was removed from the game Via
228s Real World Trade band do you like mate

233s M calls me when I stay up for an extra P
235s at the pub ah dead
239s man old school release dead man mode the
242s first PVP base Survival game mode with
244s boosted XP rates players exchange more

247s crafting oh more blows than her not even
249s going to let you finish on top of that
251s we had the introduction of Zora which
253s brought with it the toxic blowpipe try
255s of the swamp and the serpentine Helm um

301s hardcore Iron Man wow great segue David
304s 2016 brought the hardcore Iron Man game
306s mode which has the same restrictions as

374s problem watching people troll through

745s redesigned to bring a new PVP experience
748s to players we were brought sequel to the
750s Timeless classic Quest desert treasure
752s this introduced four new bosses to the
754s game offering some nice upgrades to the
755s original DK rings as well as verus robes
758s awakened versions of these bosses could
760s also be tackled at significant expense
762s which were much harder versions if you
764s could stand the heat you'd be rewarded
766s with an ancient blood ornament kit
767s allowing for a cosmetic change to the
769s TOA armor set nicknamed blover Shad was
773s the first hardcore Iron Man to kill all
774s four awaken bosses which is a crazy
776s achievement we were treated to not one
778s but two two game modes last year with
780s those being dead man apocalypse and
782s leagues 4 Trailblazer reloaded this was
784s the most popular League yet with
787s 43043 accounts playing the league was
790s there a relic to stop solo Mission
792s playing for a day so I could get a rank
793s one title for a change unfortunately not
795s honestly I'm half expecting to check the
797s Premier League table one day and his
798s name's at the top I like to see him
800s Theory craft us way out of a Jurgen Klo
801s full
803s press he's actually really good at the
805s game he's actually really good at the
806s game 2023 that'ss with the to so the
810s total amount of platinum tokens in game
812s is that can someone just work that out
815s for me honestly wait am I looking at my
817s bank account here on average per day in
819s 2023 almost 56 billion GP was removed
823s through the GE tax we've also seen the
826s removal of 396 Twisted bows through the
829s G tax in 2023 the best Wilderness KD
832s ratio was
834s 1,45 to 1 which is the same odds as me
837s being able to do The Inferno the most
839s wilderness kills in 2023 by one single
842s person was
844s 20,44 and it's your typical player
846s profile from an average active
848s pay-to-play player and that's a wrap for
850s what's been going on in the past 11
852s years I'm sure there will be much more
854s to come in this year's winter Summit we
856s were teased with a whole host of updates
