The way an economic crisis was caused by the disaster in Venezuela in RuneScape
In March 2019, Venezuela's electricity network collapsed along with OSRS gold the nation was struck by a succession of blackouts, leaving millions without water or power. At their summit in March, these blackouts were occurring almost every hour for a week. Hospitals were some of the worst areas. The issues are still affecting people now, and some believe they will continue long into the future, before the situation with the authorities is resolved.
"[People] can not get therapy like dialysis and the hospitals' conditions are insanely bad to the point that it's a hazard problem," Martinez adds. The power cuts have become a major problem for RuneScape players that rely on RuneScape as their main source of revenue. For Martinez, the power cuts were the reason that he moved away from traditional gold farming approaches to train accounts for U.S. dollars, because of sudden disconnection during combat could end in the passing of his character and also the loss of earnings. "When the first wave of blackouts started me and the men that worked with me dropped nearly all of our enterprise," Martinez says.
"Disconnections are routine but not as long as it had been when they first started," he continues. They could still affect you for a few days depending on which part of Venezuela you live in." He gets disconnected from our online chats. "We all know the power system and all the other nation controlled systems are a wreck," Perez continues. "An illustration of lack of care is the state owned ISP. We've been chatting for a few minutes and also my internet has stopped working three occasions today. Hydro/water system you don't have water, if you don't have water pumps. I could go on and on, honestly."
When these power outages first happened last March, they caused an economic crisis in RuneScape that radically impacted the prices of heavily farmed things like dragon bones, Zulrah's scales, along with black chinchompas. As scarcity came into RuneScape 2007 gold play, RuneScape players found what happens on their match's economy when you eliminate a large proportion of RuneScape players out of RuneScape.
