How to check Old School Runescape server status

Checking if Old School Runescape is down is relatively straightforward. Before visiting third-party sites, the best place to start is the official server maintenance page; doing so can inform you if any upcoming maintenance is happening with the servers for Old School Runescape. Beyond the maintenance page, we recommend checking the official Twitter account for Old School Runescape. Checking social media is a great idea, as developers will usually make official announcements when serious issues affect their games. But If you do not see any reported maintenance or official statements via Twitter, you must move to third-party sites to verify server status.

The best third-party site to check if Old School Runescape is down is Down Detector. Down Detector is a third-party website that tracks the status of servers for many services, such as games and streaming apps. Check the site while scrolling to the bottom of the page to see if users are reporting any issues. If you see any, your best bet is to sit them out, as it will take time for the developers to sort them.
