On Sunday we did a livestream where we opened the discussion on releasing a full and permanent F2P service for Old School. If you haven't watched the livestream yet, please make sure you do as this is probably the most important update Old School has ever had. You can find the full stream on www.youtube.com/OldSchoolRSCommunity.
Membership Bonds are very similar to RS3 bonds with the main difference being that you will not be able to redeem them for anything other than membership. We will also not be introducing Runecoins, Squeal of Fortune, Treasure Hunter, Solomon's Store or any other sort of micro-transactions - we wouldn't add these without their own poll and there's no plans for that at all.
During the livestream on Sunday we spoke about why we believed introducing a full and permanent F2P service with Membership Bonds is the right thing to do. Introducing Membership Bonds allows us to retain players who lapse out of membership when they have the option of playing a free version of the game. The result is that we will be in the best position to grow the community over the next few years giving us the opportunity to expand the team and deliver bigger and better updates so you can enjoy Old School even more.
This poll will close on Wednesday 4th February.
