Luckily, it doesn't seem like Jagex is paying the outrage too much mind. Kemp said that it will allow players who wish to protest to do so peacefully.

"However, " Kemp continued. "I get the feeling some of the chat will be unacceptable and we'll take care of that. "

In a statement sent to Mic, Old RuneScape developer Jagex said the following:

One of the wonderful things about RuneScape is that it has always brought people together. To many of our players, RuneScape is more than a game: it's a warm, welcoming community. It's part of their life.

Pride is about bringing communities together and celebrating love and understanding: sentiment that’s close to RuneScape's heart. There’s no political statement here. Our only aim is to acknowledge and honor an event that promotes empathy, RS Gold,acceptance and love.

As with other community events such as the WWF Big Cats campaign, Valentine’s day or the Cryptic Cluefests we decided not to poll this event and we will always try to surprise the community with similar occasions. It is something that town has always enjoyed and something we enjoy doing too.

We are disappointed to see some hateful and abusive comments targeting individual members of staff as well as players from a small sub-section of the community. We stand side-by-side with those targeted, in support of them, and in support of this cause. There is absolutely no place for hateful behavior in our local community and we will not tolerate abuse or harassment.

Pride 2017 is something we wholeheartedly agree with and are proud to support. RS 3 Gold,We know the city stand with us supporting the cause. If you want to show your support, all you have to do is take part in the event when it launches!
