Main Differences Between OSRS and RS3

Let’s say you stopped playing RuneScape game in 2007 for some reason. And now you are starting up RuneScape again. You’ll discover that a lot of things have changed. First of all Old School RuneScape have appeared separately from RuneScape 3. You may be curious what precisely is the difference between the two. Is OSRS (or RS2007, both short for Old School RuneScape) is like a separate site from RuneScape 3 (aka RS3)? And is OSRS game like it was in 2007?

Well, there are actually lots of differences. Old School RuneScape (OSRS), also called RuneScape 2007 (RS2007, RS07), came out in 2017 as a request by players who wanted to play their favorite game in the form they knew well and to which they were already strongly attached. Therefore, Jagex decided to launch Old School RuneScape: a version of RuneScape from the year 2007. They formed a dedicated to it developers team and allowed the OSRS players to vote on updates if they like. Back then it was members-only and was supposed to have few updates, maintenance mostly, but seeing how huge of a hit OSRS was, Jagex soon made it a full game, available to free-to-play too, with constant updates, not only fixes, but new content as well, such as Chambers of Xeric or Theatre of Blood. So today Old School RuneScape is not the same as it was back in 2007.

As far as RuneScape 3 is concerned, the game has been even more modified and much new content has been added. So you stopped playing RuneScape game in several years ago, RS3 would now be even more alien to you than OSRS. Yet, it has the original combat system (which according to many is a disadvantage) and you could still play like you did in the past.

Oh, yeah, one more thing: If you start to play Oldschool Runescape again, you would begin at all first levels and would have no RS items. This is because, as already mentioned, players data was not included in the backup. But it would not affect your Rs3 account, as they are separately saved files.

On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.
