RuneScape has had a very special relationship with PlayerAuctions over the years, as it has been the main “go-to” place for RS trading. RuneScape is one of the gaming industry's oldest MMOs, launching in January of 2001, and it has gone through many iterations over the years. The market for RuneScape exploded in 2011 when Jagex PvP combat was re-introduced, with the “Wilderness” (or Wildy) not being opened again to the masses. It was also during this time, that trade-amount restrictions were lifted and people could trade larger sums of RS gold.
Cheap RuneScape Gold for Sale
With RuneScape’s storied history that spans longer than the length of a decade, it goes without saying that the in-game economy is vast, and layered. And with time/action based skill acquisition, RuneScape can be a very hard game to be competitive in if you are lacking in some very important leverage which can help keep you competitive… i.e. RSgold.
Because RS has been a game that has been around for ages, trading historically began in gaming forums, of which PA was one of the first, having opened up it’s site URL back in 2000 (a year before RuneScape launched). PA back then however, was primarily the hot spot for Ultimate Online, and Diablo 2 at first, but once Jagex’s title launched a year later, RS gold trades became a huge norm.
Everyone knows however that RS gold trade was hugely curtailed in 2007 when Jagex began to introduce updates which removed the Wilderness and its infamous PvP mechanics, as well as limitations on staked items in duels, as well as trade restrictions for RS gold.
This all changed however in 2011 when the Wilderness was re-introduced and trade restrictions were lifted. Virtually overnight, the RS gold market exploded on PlayerAuctions catapulting it into our top 10 games contributing to total transactions on the site!
Buy RS Gold Safely
One of the interesting things revolving around RS trades is that this particular market can be rife with scams. Not only do people screw you because there are bad apples in the trading sphere, but also much of the RS gold on the market is farmed. PlayerAuctions screens out such risky “farmed” and “cheapest RuneScape Gold” offers from the marketplace by responding quickly to user complaints and suspending relevant sellers. To date, we haven’t had any issue with this, as there has become a very established a reputable community of sellers who provide consistently positive service to buyers. This is evident in a 97% order closure rate with both parties leaving positive feedback for RS gold orders. Consistent other games on the platform, this tells us that the proprietary technology we have developed over the years to protect users in player to player trades has had a huge impact and left an inedible mark for an area where gamers have significant demand.
Because of the more tightly knit communal aspect to RuneScape, PlayerAuctions has been proud to partner with RS forum sites such as Sythe, PowerBot, SmokinMils, and a few others where forum owners are dedicated to protecting their users from fraudulent payments, and trade scams. We love being part of the community, as well as part of the overall mission to bring legitimacy to RS gold trades. Don’t risk it on those other smaller sites, that simply don’t have the infrastructure, or decades worth of transactional history that helps keep our members safe. PlayerGuardian ftw.
