If you already subscribe via credit card you just have to press a button! No details needed! How thoughtful of them.

In all seriousness, wasn't credit card and paypal fraud one of the original reasons for removing free trade? And now they have added a feature that pretty much encourages fraud to obtain in game advantages.


You make it sound like running through a few level 87 monsters is hard which it really shouldn't be at your level.

It's that simple? You don't have to go through an order confirmation screen or anything? You literally just have to press a buttion?

 

Wouldn't they lose MASSIVE amounts of money in charge-back fees from the parents who the CC belongs to?

Ummm....at Runefest, Jagex said they wouldn't be introducing an in-game casino because it would be a "legal nightmare" due to gambling laws...

 

Excuse me, but isn't this gambling? A lot more than an in-game casino even would be, considering that GP only have real world value if you break the rules....whereas here there's no doubt about the real world value...?

I would hope theres a confirmation screen. I haven't even bothered to log in with all honesty so I can't say for sure if its a simple button or not.

Pressing the button in game takes you to the Jagex store place whatever it's called. There you can select the amount of spins and the payment method. If you select card it'll have your details there already then you just need to click on the confirm button and it'll complete. That's it. Once you click that button there's no chance to back out.

 

So yes, it's possible for kids to put it on their parents credit cards if they're paying for their membership that way with no extra effort.

"We don't want players to be able to buy their way to success in RuneScape. If we let players start doing this, it devalues RuneScape for others. We feel your status in real-life shouldn't affect your ability to be successful in RuneScape" Jagex 01/04/01 - 02/03/12

What is real-world trading?

 

Real-world trading is the term used for the real-world purchase of services with the intention of advancing your Jagex character. This includes, but is not limited to: purchasing gold or items in RuneScape, buying a RuneScape account as well as paying someone to increase your account's experience (XP) in a skill or for them to complete quests and activities on your behalf.

 

Why do we have this rule?

 

We have this rule for two reasons:

 

1. We dont want players to be able to buy their way to success in RuneScape. If we let players start doing this, it devalues RuneScape for others. We feel your status in real-life shouldnt affect your ability to be successful in RuneScape.

2. Often when players sell items in RuneScape for real cash, the items are actually stolen. When a player purchases a RuneScape account, there is a high probability that the account may have been stolen. Stolen accounts will always be returned to the original owner.

Thanks for the info Darkdude. I hope they change that soon. If they're going to make updates to farm in the cash, they better at least do it wisely. That's a joke.

One could argue there is no wager so it's not actually "gambling". You are purchasing content (microtransactions).

It also defaults to 10 spins and card so it's possible to pay for it without even selecting any options, just clicking the confirm button.

 

What's also interesting is that the email I received went straight to my spam inbox, so it's possible parents won't even see the email about it (assuming they've used their email for the account). This was on Gmail so I imagine it'll happen to a lot of people.

Apparently it doesn't count as gambling in a real life sense because you cannot win anything of real world value....

So say you are subscribing by credit card.I hack your account, then can I keep pressing the button to get more and more spins without needing to enter anything?

What if someone wins a lucky divine spirit shield and sells the account for real life money then? That's a real world value, IMO.

The awkward moment when Jagex realizes they just provided a loophole for goldfarmers to use when jagex tries to sue them.

 

Jagex states something along the lines of "Trading rs items for real cash is against the rules." Yet that is exactly what they're doing. All a goldfarming company would have to do is provide evidence of the rule, jagex breaking that themselves and boom, case is over.
