Old School Runescape developer Jagex has opted to close the MMORPG name's Bounty Hunter worlds"until further notice" due to questions about gold farmers abusing them. After an early statement letting players understand that the worlds will shut down, the developers have gone into further detail in their strategies to revamp PvP. "It's time to make a change," Jagex says in the announcement. "Not only to Bounty Hunter, but also to our strategy to PvP as a whole. PvP is a cornerstone of Old School. Now it deserves better, so we're taking a step back and considering its place in the overall game. Our goal is to ascertain a long-term eyesight for PvP. Rather than move from 1 release to another, we need a clear direction for the upcoming few years which will inform the way we design content moving forward."
Plans to revamp PvP will begin taking place in February, and these ideas will be introduced to the neighborhood. "We also expect to re-release Bounty Hunter in a few months, provided we could establish a way to continuously track and act against fostering." In the meantime, the minigame's unique items"will be made available elsewhere." The studio originally educated players of the player-killing minigame's closure in an update article on the game's website, saying it's"sorry to announce that we've chosen the decision to close the Bounty Hunter worlds until further notice". The reason behind it, Jagex describes, is the manner's"design sadly leaves it prey to gold farmers, who misuse its mechanisms to generate GP in excess of those numbers available via valid procedures."
While it sounds the scope of the gold farming has not yet reached a place where it's impacting Old School Runescape's in-game market, the studio explains it"undermines other game content and the general integrity of the game" On account of the issues existing before a rework of Bounty Hunter in November 2019, the devs"do not believe that just undoing it would solve them", adding that"this is quite clearly not the result that some of us wanted, but right now we are convinced it's the best alternative available to us."
