Did you know?

A Chinese mining company appears to be offering to buy Jagex for 300 mil, discussions are in the works. I first heard about it on the BnL forums on steam. Most of them there appear to be worried for BnL's future. Some theories are that everything will be fine, another says they'll probably disband Jagex and assign a Chinese studio to work on RuneScape. Perhaps the end of AoS' history forever? Thoughts?

wow, that just shows how greedy for money the Jagex executives are. Seriously, a CHINESE MINING company buying out a BRITISH DEV company?

Yup, from what I read it appears that they're losing a lot of money too. That's why they're buying Jagex, to change their company. I don't know anything about business but I imagine there will be a lot of layoffs and they'll probably scrap the side project games like AoS/BnL, etc.

Pffft, forget Jagex, they're dead now. They don't do Java anymore, well they hardly make good games now, and they definitely aren't experts.

The deals have been finalized and Jagex has been bought.

I think the card game they just released helped seal the deal.

I say, fark the yellow goblins. Ace being owned by JAva Game EXperiments is already bad, but some dog-piss company wanting to buy THAT, with Ace as an asset... it's just up the arse!
The only improvement I wanna see in OpenSpades is "perception" - loading certain mods on certain teamcolors (all blues are Steves, all greens are Regulars (stock avatar), all Zeds are flack jackets.
