Its seems like jagex has made a new decision to allow players who had their accounts banned to be able to buy it back. You can find this here. Scroll down a little bit and look for the title "Banned Account Reinstatement".


If Jagex bans any account as a result of your breach of the Rules of RuneScape and you have exhausted the Offence Appeals Process, Jagex may, in its absolute discretion, give you an opportunity to make a fixed payment to reinstate the account.

Any membership credit that is associated with an account cannot be used to pay for such reinstatement. Please note that throughout the period during which the account was banned, any membership credit will continue to expire.

Jagex is not obliged to reinstate any accounts. You are not obliged to exercise the option to reinstate your account. If you are offered the opportunity, it is entirely up to you whether you make any such payment to reinstate an account.

Any gains or advantages that Jagex considers were made as a result of using macros shall be removed from your account. You accept that the account will be returned to you, adjusted by Jagex to take account of the cheating offence, and no discussion will be entered into regarding the status of a returned account.

So in other words you can pay for an account that was totally reset and not know this information beforehand. Makes perfect sense.

Sounds like JAGEX has to offer it to YOU for you to be able to get the option. Doesn't seem like you get the option without them offering it to you first

So looks like they can change the stats before you get the account back and after you paid. Which I'm guessing will mean they still reset stats on non-banned macroers

Ahaha, that's actually a really smart move by Jagex. I'm all for Jagex extracting every last penny out of cheaters.

I think they'll only offer you this offer depending on the circumstances as to why you're banned. eg: botting wont get it, but if you got banned for swearing in 2008, you can buy it back.

They said that any gains from botting would be reset. So they'd just be paying for nothing.

IMO this is stupid. There's no way this will be a viable source of income considering the number of people who are perm banned for non-botting offences. To be even worth mentioning in the financial report it would have to cost hundreds of dollars/pounds/euros per account, even then they number of people willing to do so would be small. It just encourages people to keep acting like idiots.

Jagex is getting money, and the occasional continuation of membership, for extremely little effort. That's a viable source of income in any book, no matter how large.

As long as they remove everything gained by botters, this is probably not that big a deal..cheaters only lose by losing RL cash and the time they wasted botting. Of course, that's assuming they really do remove EVERYTHING gained by cheaters.

I'm also genuinely curious as to how much...if it's like $500+ i honestly would not mind even if the botter could keep all his stats. Still probably not worth botting for anyone.
