Yeah if you think light a fire in an area that is empty gets the server tell just you concerning the fire. Lighting the fire that is exact same in a place with 1000 individuals has to send that fire to OSRS gold all 1000 in precisely the exact same time. I don't understand how much optimization they do to non visible players but it's possible that every single player in a stack of players has information about their location/actions always being delivered to every other player in the region even if it is not visible on your customer.
It functions a little bit different. Your client is asking the server the condition of Runescape in your area. Hence that the server checks that players are in your area, what they're wearing, and what they're doing (and a great deal more). Because he has to fetch player details of 1000 individuals, in large areas the host has a massive undertaking to do. That's why you will notice lag in several other regions as well, the host is so occupied with handling the areas that are crowded, he can get your request sorted.
RS2 had much more players (even much more robots ) than RS3 and we had seen 250k+ gamers on the internet often in summer and 1000+ players on each world was no issue back then in 2011. Technologies have improved tremendously nearly a decade later, it is just stupid/moronic/idiotic thought that RS3 servers have been in worse shape than the RS2 era. RS3 can manage a lot more players than now, especially more players will mean more servers will be additional. The servers' stability problems is a few players do for. It's not a huge issue.
Back in 2009 (later Runescape was considered"dead" due to wildy elimination ), a few servers are so bloated that Runescape was really literally unplayable. Killing a boss was inconceivable to me because the only actions you can perform were mid-level slayer and skilling. Some of these experiences are distinct due to me being free to play in the time however I only presumed that the once far-fetched dreams like having the ability to play RuneScape on a cell phone became possible, they would have fixed the server instability issues that created Runescape impossible to perform with.
I don't know what folks are talking about using Old School servers because I play with Old School and these servers are absolute spaghetti. The OSRS servers are so bad that you are able to perish to slayer animals that are superior because Runescape will freeze for 20 seconds or more. Not exactly. Why it is so I can not really explain, but it makes a huge difference. So much so in actuality, that in OSRS some crafty shady people realized they can replicate money if they left the server crash. The outcome? And place those accounts. They left as it tried to compute all those strikes in a tiny area, all of Buy RS gold the alts fight each other, creating strain.
