RuneScape (also known as RuneScape 3) is a fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that was developed by Jagex and was released in 2001. In today’s guide, I’ll be teaching you how to delete or close RuneScape Account including Email and Login Information.
Since its release in 2001, the role-playing game has successfully gathered a lot of players over the past few years and is currently holding the Guinness World Records of being the world’s largest and most-updated free massively multiplayer online role-playing game with over 200 million accounts created and that’s bigger than the total number of users on Instagram or Twitter.
RuneScape is an exciting game that lets you have full control over how your avatar behaves, which means that you get to decide the fate of your avatar. What makes RuneScape exciting is that it uses a point and click mechanism which is popular amongst gamers. The game is currently available on PC (Linux, Windows 10, and Mac) through steam, it’s also available on Android and iOS devices.
After playing the game for a long while you may have become bored of playing the game and you want to delete your RuneScape gaming account and you just want to close your RuneScape account but you are unable to. Lucky for you, I’ll be teaching you how to delete or close RuneScape Account including Email and Login Information.
How to Delete or Close RuneScape Account
Unfortunately, you may not be able to completely delete your account but there are ways to go around it. Depending on your reason, to delete or close RuneScape account you can either disable your account temporarily or permanently. In this guide, I’ll be guiding you through each method, one after the other, and at the end of this guide, you would have learned how to close the RuneScape account.
How to Close RuneScape Account Temporarily
There are several reasons why one would want to close their account temporarily. It could be because you no longer want the email you used in registering to be associated with the account or you no longer want to have access to the game because you are working on a project and you don’t want to be distracted. Whatever your reasons are if you want to close RuneScape account temporarily you’d have to send an Email request to Jagex support because it’s not possible to close the account via the platform.
To do this you’d have to write an email explaining why you want to temporarily close your RuneScape account. In your email, you’ll have to include the email address associated with the account, username, contact information, and the reason for closing the account. After creating the email, send it to “[email protected]”. Once your Jagex support receives the mail, your request to temporarily close the RuneScape account will be carried out.
Note: After sending the mail, it could take several days before your request will be granted.
How to Close RuneScape Account Permanently
Before now, it wasn’t possible to permanently close your RuneScape account. Closing your RuneScape account permanently is now possible but it’s stressful and a lot of persons wouldn’t like to go through that stress as it involves sending Jagex to support an affidavit stating your reason for the deactivation.
To close your RuneScape account permanently, you’d have to prepare an official signed notarized affidavit document and send the official document to Jagex Ltd, Customer Service Team, 220 Science Park, Cambridge CB4 0WA, UK.
Note: it might take several days and a great deal of effort from your end to permanently close the account.
If the reason for closing the account is simply because you want to start the game all over again having gained experience from playing the game then you don’t have to go through the stress of closing your account permanently all you have to do would be to create a new account and start all over again.
Creating the account is simple. To create one, follow the steps outlined below:
- Visit https://www.runescape.com/community
- Click on the subscribe button found at the top right corner of the screen.
- Click on Create an account.
- Input the new email you want to be associated with RuneScape.
- Follow through with the rest of the instructions.
- Finally, click on Play Now.
Once the game starts you have successfully created a new account that’s associated with a different Email. This means that you now have two accounts on the platform and you can access any one of your choices.
