    What is an RSPS? 

    A RuneScape Private Server, otherwise known as an RSPS, is a user-made server which possesses similar traits and content from the game ‘Runescape’. These Runescape Private Servers are usually managed by individuals or small teams with developers, community managers and administrators.  To create an RSPS, knowledge in programming languages such as Java, C#, PHP and SQL are required. 

    Are RuneScape Private Servers Dying?

    This question depends on the RuneScape Private Server's management team, development team and other key roles and factors that play a role in the overall succession of a server. There are less players playing RSPS’s in 2020 in comparison to previous years, however this does not mean the inherent fun in playing a RSPS is out of the window.

    There are still numerous successful RSPS’s with a large player base and community. Frequent and consistent updates, Server events and advertising campaigns all contribute to the fate of an RSPS.

    Newly released Private servers with a strong management and development team can also drastically change the overall player base of other competitors’ servers.

     

    How much do RuneScape Private Servers make?

    This varies depending on a few factors: Player base, the amount pumped into marketing and development and the number of players that donate money to the server in return for items or In-Game money. Private servers usually offer their donators specialized ranks and zones for their contributions.

    A successful server which averages 400 players can generate between $15,000 - $20,000 a month depending on the amount of donations they receive.

    From research conducted by Crumb (RuneScape Youtuber), the well-known private server ‘SoulSplit’ averaged about 2000 daily players and generated an estimate of 1.5 million dollars in annual net revenue. SoulSplit was said to have 3 million unique accounts registered.

     

    Does Jagex care about RuneScape Private Servers (Legality behind RSPS)?

    Jagex have taken down many RSPS servers in the past including big names like SoulSplit, Ikov, Emps-Scape, FrugooScape and many others. That being said since the release of OldSchool RuneScape, Jagex has been very idle in the RSPS scene and no take downs have happened. does jagex care about RSPS now? We will have to wait and see!

    Believe it or not, but the majority of servers are illegal. You are using Jagex's Stream and Cryption classes. There's also a belief that a TOS can save you. No, it can't. It's like murdering someone, placing them on your lawn, and then placing a sign that states 'Police officers are not allowed on this premise So, there's really only one way around the illegality,and that is rewriting the RS client not to use anything of Jagex's. Although, if you can do this, you're better off going and making your own game.

  2. The owner of RuneAd threatens owner of RuneSuite with Blackmail, attempts fraud\scam

    So where do I even start? Today I woke up with an email from PayPal saying that I have an active dispute for $80. I go to investigate and find out that its from the owner of RuneAd (Aaron) 

    I read the dispute and I'm shocked to see what was written:

    Image

    Now if this was true he would have a point but the whole story and evidence supplied is fabricated:

    The next screenshot shows his discord server not showing a channel with the name RuneAd.

    After this happened I was shell shocked and confused how is this possible? So I did a bit of investigating to see what the hell is going on and to my surprise, he actually fabricated proof and changed discord partner to $80 and gift card to $50. this was not the case when looking into the Admin Panel previous transactions this is what actually was paid:

    $50 for Discord Partnership and $80 for a custom side banner

    Evidence of what we discussed:

    When I confronted him with the evidence of what we discussed and sent proof of transactions this is how he responded:

    Image

    Image

    He blocks me then later unblocks me and the conversation continues and he states "he never used  it" directly after saying he only used it "once" (which is a lie) then continues to threaten\blackmail me:

    Image

    I "agreed" to his blackmail to get him to cancel the dispute and in the end he comes up with a joke of an excuse:

    Image

    But while RuneSuite was being "sold" we talked:

    Image

    There is a big irony to the story and its that his banner\discord stayed up for an extra month because i forgot about it which is a total of $130 worth of free advertisement:

    Special shout out \ thanks to King Fox for helping me out during this process:

    Update 1/02/2021: he is now using blackhat SEO to attack all major RSPS servers & toplists\forums & is also faking voting on his own toplist l0l
