Cheating and Exploits - 02 March 2010

Recommended Posts

The recent cheating that occurred and the abuse of an exploit has been dealt with very seriously. We have excellent systems in place to catch and detect players who abuse bugs and have taken appropriate measures.

 

We have now banned 68 accounts PERMANENTLY, with another 48 receiving temporary bans. There are a further 117 accounts which have been temporarily banned while undergoing further investigation. These will be dealt with very shortly.


  • To give you some idea of the players involved, here are the ten highest-level players banned so far (based on total skill level):
    • 2,376 total level (520 days of in-game time)
    • 2,308 total level (477 days of in-game time)
    • 2,210 total level (365 days of in-game time)
    • 2,179 total level (1,004 days of in-game time)
    • 2,131 total level (394 days of in-game time)
    • 2,105 total level (202 days of in-game time)
    • 2,102 total level (274 days of in-game time)
    • 2,096 total level (448 days of in-game time)
    • 2,022 total level (337 days of in-game time)
    • 2,021 total level (275 days of in-game time)

 

We’d like to remind everyone that using macros and abusing bugs is NOT tolerated under any circumstances, and we will ban ANY accounts that have been cheating.

It is nice to have Jagex publicize one of these, it has been a while since they made it clear what was going on to punish these glitchers. Although I am surprised to see that these are the top 10 (I was expected a few more higher players), it is nice for them to have given us numbers. The most shocking one as most people will probably find is Player #4 with a huge 1004 days of play time, this is over 3 years ingame, assuming they played regularily that is still atleast a 6/7 year old account with over 24,000 hours of in-game play, was it really worth it to lose your account over a few million gp in bolts that were unsellable? I know personally even though I have quit my main I would not want it to be banned with the 275 days of play time I have on it (1/4 of what this other player had).
