In RuneScape, the black-market industry that was backed by gold farmers was comparatively small until 2013. Some players  OSRS gold were unsatisfied with how much the computer game had evolved since it first released in 2001. Therefore, they asked Jagex to restore an earlier version. Jagex released one from its archive, and subscribers returned to what was to be referred to as Old School RuneScape.

A lot of them were just like Mobley. They played RuneScape in their teens, and then enjoyed the sharp graphics and the fun soundtrack. Although these 20 and 30-year-olds had time to themselves when they were younger They now had responsibilities in addition to homework.

"People have jobs and are likely to have families," said Stefan Kempe another popular creator of videos on RuneScape who has over 200k followers and goes by the name SoupRS on an interview. "It's a limiting factor to how much they are able to play everyday."

The game can be very tedious. To increase the player's agility from 1 to 99, the highest level, it would require more than a week of continuous play, according to a complete guide that was released by the creator. When they realized they could have more than their typical allowances as teenagers, players like Mobley, who works in a data center, decided to bypass the drudgery of increasing their character's level as well as the price of the rare items, and the sometimes monotonous early stages that the games offer.

Others like Corne 21, a 21-year-old computer programmer born in Arnhem, Netherlands, who declined to give his name, but placed bets on gold, and by it, real-world currency, on duel with other players. "I have a love for money. If it's in real life or in RuneScape and other games, money is nice to have," he said in an interview.

Horn buys a large portion of his gold via middlemen, who buy gold in bulk from farmers of gold who then sell it via websites such as El Dorado or Sythe. Horn estimates that he's spent between 4,000 and 5,000 euros fueling what he believes at one point was the buy RS gold  equivalent of an addiction to gambling.
