We have recently banned several high-profile accounts from the dicing scene.
We can happily confirm that the ring leaders found to be involved in selling RuneScape gold have been banned. Their actions have directly funded a sizable portion of all real world trading activity within the game, led to increased macro use, and resulted in huge surges in spam advertising.
Such actions are strictly against our rules, and all accounts have been wiped and permanently nuked.
This should serve a clear warning to anyone else engaged in similar activities; expect more bans of any continuing offenders.
We have been finely tuning our new anti-cheat and anti-hijack tools over the past few months and are now steadily bringing these systems online in select areas. This is part of an on-going rollout that will be completed over the course of next two months. More good news will follow in due course.
Some of you may already have noticed that we have started cleaning up the high scores over the last week, and this will assist us in being able to re-introduce relevant gold farmer free free-to-play high scores again.
