The latest launch of the Golden Gnomes competition has subtle improvements. The fresh categories include The RuneFest Art Competition, The RuneFest CosPlay Competition, and The Video Competition. What is innovatory is that Jagex launch the “Give Me A Gnome Because…” program that acquires competitors to demonstrate strongly why they deserve the awards. The charming gallery, the eye-catching costumes, or the marvelous video themed RuneScape would be displayed at RuneFest 3.
In the first full month of RuneScape 3’s launch, the game has had well over 300,000 new players start their Buy RS Gold adventure and over 100,000 former players re-activate their accounts. In total these new, existing and returning players have seen on average 600,000 hours of gameplay being played per day, which emerge numerous talents beyond video-making out there this year. They’ve become the all-encompassing Golden Gnome Awards.
We don’t know why RuneFest and Golden Gnomes Awards were absent last year. Perhaps RuneScape team at Jagex was busy with making a difference by bringing in RuneScape 3 based on HTML5. The return of RuneFest and Golden Gnomes Awards is exciting.
