Thankfully Jagex, the developers of OSRS

#1
Old School RuneScape (OSRS), an MMORPG title that started nearly two years ago, has recently closed a community poll which has been voting on the execution of"Partnerships." In essence, Partnerships revolve around the idea that some new things and features would become accessible to"Partners" of Old School RuneScape, prior to being published to the general populace.

That is nothing new, as last year the developers of RuneScape"partnered" with Twitch to let Prime members early entry to a new purple skin color. The RuneScape community didn't enjoy the concept back then, and they don't enjoy it now. A subreddit devoted to OSRS has slammed the notion repeatedly over the past week. Many users are claiming that this brings the game one step closer to having full blown microtransactions. Other people view this as"microtransactions via a third party," since players that have paid to be partners with another company are rewarded with exclusive items.

Thankfully Jagex, the developers of OSRS, have stated they will not include any new content to the game without first polling the community. This can be accomplished by an in-game voting booth where members can cast their virtual ballots. Due to this voting system, the majority of the community is happy with any changes made to the game that is nostalgic. The survey was set to close on Monday the 8th, however ancient polling results were negative Jagex decided to shut the stalls early. A formal statement from the company indicates that not only were the polls extremely one-sided, but the general hatred around the topic forced them to abandon the thought. They state that they had been in no way trying to add microtransactions to the game and are frustrated the community thought they would do such a thing.

Of course, they did exactly that with Runescape 3, a move which many claim stunted the development of the title. OSRS is a Free to Perform title, but it supplies a monthly subscription that adds hundreds of hours of extra content. The simple fact that any sort of monetization was discussed while the title already contains a monthly subscription was probably the cause of such a backlash from the community.
