The popular online dream game has been running because 2001, as well as holds the globe record for the most-updated game worldwide, having been serviced with routine updates for greater than 15 years.

Nevertheless, players reacted with fury today when it was disclosed that Old School RuneScape, one of two variations of the video game which is still proactively in production by the UK-based Jagex, would be obtaining an unique in-game occasion to celebrate Satisfaction month.

Aw bless, all those homophobic snowflakes.

So basically, they want a safe space?

Coming off as a bit butthurt here aren’t you?

I agree with the people against this. Can’t you keep this crap out of the game? 😤😤😤😤👎👎👎👎

• Posted by The Zero Zero, at Reply

Politics run deep in games, we are just too dumb to see it until it’s done heavy handed.

Why should you care? If you don’t like it just don’t do the event. It’s not like you are being forced to. Just let the people who enjoy it enjoy it until the event ends.

How weak do you have to be to get triggered by a Gay Pride Event?

• Posted by Robert Catt, at Reply

+Tyrion L not at all play it. you can make thousands staking and betting.

• Posted by Tyrion L, at Reply

Robert Catt still doesn’t mean that it is pathetic TYT is reporting on runescape ffs. they should of talked about the march against sharia.

• Posted by xithappens, at Reply

Tyrion L …should “of” talked? WTF.

• Posted by Tyrion L, at Reply

xithappens ?

“We pay, no gay”? Runescape is free to play, ya whiny little bitches!

• Posted by Jon Tvedt, at Reply

I play runescape. You can play for free, but most serious players buy a monthly membership fee. I have probably used over 500\$ in total on runescape; however, I agree with the pride.

• Posted by Celixify, at Reply

The event was run on the Oldschool version of the game, which added free-to-play like a year ago, but more than 90% of the players are paying members. So your statement is incorrect.

+Celixify You said yourself that it is now free to play, so no. My statement was inaccurate. Though, if you’d have bothered to read the other comments before posting, you’d notice theBlackBlur already explained it to me.

A bunch of virgins mad that gay people are getting laid.

Gay virgins don’t exist? You’re a dumbfuck.

• Posted by michael cook, at Reply

+DiabolicalApostle touche gay virgin

• Posted by Tyrion L, at Reply

most people that play runescape are virgins. doesn’t matter if you are gay or straight. i don’t even know why tyt is doing a story covering runescape of all things for fucks sakes. it is a mmorpg for 12 year olds

6. Posted by David Gutowski, at Reply

So would you also support a straight pride event?

Then he is part of the minority of people who are against it, like the people who are angry about the gay pride event.

• Posted by David Gutowski, at Reply

But you literally said “literally nobody” lol

• Posted by Maxi Miceli, at Reply

David Gutowski luckily I don’t, I’m from Argentina (same sex marriage legal since 2010 voted through law, the catholic church tried to stop it but couldn’t) but is not just muslim countries, christian countries do it to, hindus, even people from african religions, and is not just small countries, Russia and India prosecute gay people

If I’m being honest it was just to make a point. Never take someone literally if they use the word “literally” in their sentence.

Lol I had no idea runescape gamers were so homophobic

• Posted by Raussl, at Reply

it’s like a tiny number of loudmouthed bigots…98% of the gamers either don’t care or are celebrating it.

• Posted by Supralobe, at Reply

Yeah, I figured – People with narrow minds usually have broad tongues

• Posted by Supralobe, at Reply

XD, right back at ya

It’s funny because every day is white straight male day.

+Robe Spier I think you’re demonizing me right now man.

• Posted by Futurism, at Reply

Cause we’re better than you.

9. Posted by lcyw20, at Reply

These “rioters” just proved Jagex’s point that there is a need to defend LGBTQ+.

• Posted by Raussl, at Reply

but showing you disaprove of something means you are against something…they very much disaprove of gays if they protest against it. If they just wouldn’t want to participate, they would just not participate in any of the content of the festival, which is very much possible.

• Posted by Andy Dominguez, at Reply

Why not have a white pride event in the game?
What’s wrong? Is there a problem?

• Posted by TheFounderUtopia, at Reply

Yes. Because I *do* have a problem with the content of a white pride event, because I *do* have a problem with white pride. I can admit that, because I am not an intellectually dishonest cretin who wants to wave a fist at the things he doesn’t like and then act like a guilty child making excuses when called out on it. Why can’t the ones protesting this pride event be as honest as I am?

• Posted by givemeinformation, at Reply

Andy Dominguez
Because white pride is already every other day. Check your privilege bud.

>comparing a movement to support a historically oppressed and scapegoated group to a movement of neo-nazis jerking each other off over the accomplishments of their ancestors. Great comparison Andy Dominguez

Libtard snowflakes need to get a job and stop protesting worthless bullshit!

789french5 the point is runescape is a game for 12 year olds. and they are doing a story about it. they should of talked about the march against sharia protests. this story is dumb.

11. Posted by Shimohi Kagami, at Reply

In other words: Snowflake “gamers” throw tantrum about event acknowledging that queer people are, le gasp, *people* that deserve to live and love like everyone else.

• Posted by Uranius Johnson, at Reply

Shimohi Kagami Snowflake purposefully misrepresents a group of people to facilitate a ridiculous argument.

• Posted by Tyrion L, at Reply

if anything they are role playing. gayness was not allowed in medieval times.

12. Posted by Andy Dominguez, at Reply

A medieval game with gay pride events. Makes perfect sense.
Stop shoving your politics on people.

• Posted by Hitchhiking Vagabond, at Reply

The harder the left pushes the lgbt agenda the harder the right will push back. Push hard enough and there will be a backlash, like the increase in homophobic violence.

Learn when to take a hand without ripping off the arm. Be happy with the rights you have fought for and demand no more. This is a warning to all homosexuals and such.

13. Posted by Brazul Blint, at Reply

Well I’m glad runescape isn’t backing off of this. A lot of people are gamers, and the cruel ones stick out cause they’re the loudest. That makes it easier to pin gamers as bad people.

• Posted by A-Jay Franklin, at Reply

Brazul Blint yup like the United Nation force Rockstar studies to discontinue the GTA series because GTA 5 promote Anti government anti cops

14. Posted by Phil James, at Reply

Me and my wife always go to Pride events in our local area because it’s not just about gay people, its also about the higher intelligence gained from acceptance of diversity and celebrating empathy in defiance of assholes around the world.

• Posted by Phil James, at Reply

And I will be here for you to come back down to reality 🙂

• Posted by Hooking and Pecking, at Reply

So you don’t think diversity and acceptance is reality?

• Posted by Hooking and Pecking, at Reply

But how far would you go for your ideals of tolerance and acceptance? would you kill for it?

15. Posted by Kim Jong-un, at Reply

I dunno tyt video games shouldn’t promote anything about sexuality . ..its a kids game

Kim Jong-un kids are in a state of growing and learning. There sexuality is part of that growth. They need to learn about themselves and also that they are acepeted. I know sexuality has the word sex, which I feel is confusing you a bit, but they are different entities.

• Posted by Kim Jong-un, at Reply

Ryan I
do you teach straight people how to like girls…

your once again confusing meanings. sexuality is what you have you don’t teach people to like or not like a certain gender. What is important is that children are able to see examples of there sexuality in the world or vitiral world around them. Allowing them to devolve into healthy well adjusted individual’s.

• Posted by Kim Jong-un, at Reply

nah man , straight people don’t just fly around with a rainbow flag and think it’s ok for women to poop next to men .

people will never like the gay community , they just tolerate because you’re a human just like us , and you get to make ur own choices.

since gay people obviously own majority of the media , we will continue to see this pointless garbage .

NO-ONE ACCEPTS THE LGBT COMUNITY!!
it’s exactly like accepting obese people as beautiful…its disgusting.

just because the government (liberals inside the government at the time ) passed laws to protect the lgbt community…doesbt mean u guys are moving forward lmao

16. Posted by Pointless Bunkum, at Reply

The “rioters” don’t hate gay people. They hate being told to “approve” of gay people.

(whilst in a video game) (whilst being adults) (after hearing this message for the 100th time) (whist already approving of gay people)

It is patronizing, tiresome and counterproductive. This is why you get 6000 people rejecting this as bullshit.

• Posted by Pointless Bunkum, at Reply

Fair enough.

Peace.

Can’t wait for RuneScape to host a *Free Palestine, end the Israeli occupation* event.

• Posted by mrpayne123, at Reply

I’m definitely not pro Israel, but the situation is a little more complex with both sides with some fault. But with gay quality We’re talking about something with no grey area he, gay equality is about basic human rights, would you be offended if they had some type of race equality event?

• Posted by Hobbes Tiger, at Reply

*BOTH* sides are with “some” fault? Are you shitting me right now? So the Palestinians are at fault for fighting back, for opposing the oppressors. Instead, they should have simply rolled over and gone for pure, uncompromised non-aggression approach. You know, just like *Nelson Mandela* and his movement – OH WAIT! In actual fact, Nelson Mandela was branded a terrorist and the ANC did organize bomb attacks to fight back against the brutal apartheid regime.
So please, tell me; *would you consider the fight against Apartheid in South Africa as a “complex matter”?* Would you say that opposing apartheid was not a matter of basic human rights but was a purely “political issue”?

You mayn now go and f@ck yourself, dear Sir -_-

• Posted by mrpayne123, at Reply

You need to relax, & you didn’t answer my question about the race equality event. I do think that Israel has done a lot wrong, but fighting back by blowing up innocent civilians in this case is not the right move. The human rights case is not as easy to see as the simple fact that gays shouldn’t be discriminated against.

• Posted by mrpayne123, at Reply

Stop insulting & try to converse. I’m actually more on your side, though I think your views may be skewed a bit, Israeli deaths have been much lower in recent years, but the situation is still a little different than a very simple thing like gay equality. It wasn’t a terrible analogy you made, just different in a couple ways. & it seemed you were annoyed by the gay event, I don’t understand why that would be unless you were annoyed by gay equality.
