Earlier this week we published a post about Jagex's response to the COVID-19 outbreak. If you haven't seen it yet, please click here. Stay safe out there!
This week’s update sees some more changes to Last Man Standing.
Those of you who've read this month's edition of the Gielinor Gazette will know that we're removing the buy-in fee for competitive game modes in Last Man Standing. Players who still want the thrill of competing for gold can still play on the High Stakes worlds.
In addition, we've made some changes in order to combat 'boxing', which is a practice where two players will fistfight for the duration of the game, dealing zero damage and preventing legitimate players from attacking them. To fix this, we've implemented a feature where players showing no signs of valid progression within a Last Man Standing session will become attackable while in combat with other players.
Finally, both Bloody and Bloodier Keys now have a chance to give you mithril seeds which will only be usable in the minigame. Peace, man.
