The news prompted Redditor FatNWackyRS to reach out to users on r/Outriders to send a message about Mod Osborne who he described as the "warm and RuneScape gold friendly "Dad" face at Jagex." FatNWackyRS describes all the things Mod Osborne has contributed to the community over the years, and includes some videos, such as performing as Mod Elfborne, promoting Prifddinas (an Elf City in Runescape), joining livestreams, and helping alongside the company's vision.
Some communities or gamers would be upset about losing a brand name, FatNWackyRS invited other Runescape players to talk about their experiences. One user, for example, states that they feel they've both won and lost because they play at both Runescape along with Outriders. Many were excited by the announcement, even those who have never had a conversation with Osborne prior to this glowing review from a member of the Runescape community.
What exactly will happen on the other part of the Outriders fence remains to be seen, but the fans are aware of a number of good things are expected to come into the sport. Outriders' Worldslayer expansion is due to be released in the spring, and is scheduled to release in 2015, and beyond that, People Can Fly has a ton of other projects being developed, including a game with Square Enix. If Osborne will be involved with that, though, remains to be confirmed.
FatNWackyRS concludes his post with a simple, heartfelt note for Osborne when he is able to see it Thank you for everything he's performed for Runescape and warm best wishes for his time at Square Enix. "We are so grateful for you, we will miss you and send you the very best of prosperity in all the exciting ventures with Square Enix," the Redditor wrote on old school runescape buy gold behalf the RS community.
