RuneScape Brazilian is the Brazilian Portuguese localisation of RuneScape, released by Jagex on 24 July 2009.[1]

Due to Brazilian laws, alcoholic beverages in-game have had their names changed, a common occurrence during video game localization. For example, the item beer has been renamed garapa, a sugarcane juice.

Previously, all Brazilian servers had been stated as located in Brazil[2]; however, when a traceroute was performed the final destination was found to be located within the U.S. state of Florida.

Brazilian Portuguese game servers[edit | edit source]

RuneScape Brazilian hosts four servers for Brazilian Portuguese players to access:

47 Yes No
75 Yes Yes
94 No Yes
101 Yes (Legacy Only) Yes

Issues with game servers[edit | edit source]

The Brazilian servers have had a history of malfunctioning since their launch:

  • Before the February 2016 Double XP Weekend most Brazilian players had issues logging in, having to connect to foreign servers to participate in the events.[3]
  • Server 47 has suffered from several cases of poor performance in the past, including exceptionally high server pings, exceeding 2,000 ms.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Due to the distance to the server, many Brazilian players have complained about the lag. On average, both Portuguese and Brazilian players reportedly have a ping over 200ms for these worlds.[4]
