The now official Jagex rule on Multilogging

 

Rule Update and Clarification

Recently there has been discussion on the RuneScape forums and social networks regarding two rules – Multi-Logging and Account Sharing/Selling. We need to take your feedback on board and be sure that the rules are relevant for RuneScape as it is today. We've reviewed your comments, and in collaboration with the Customer Support and Community teams, have updated the rules in these areas.

In short, we're OK with multi-logging as long as it doesn't involve rule breaking or gameplay exploitation (read the full rule here); and on Account Sharing/Selling the message is simple – don’t share, don’t sell and don’t buy accounts (read the full rule here).

From a player perspective, if you think that you might be breaking a rule, or what you are doing is not in the spirit of fair play, then you are best off avoiding it as this could result in action being taken against your account.

Ultimately, we don’t want to stifle genuine game play, and we hope you’ll agree that this approach is best for all.

Rules of RuneScape

Updated Rules:

Multiple logging-in
You are free to create as many accounts as you like and you are welcome to trade between your accounts just as you would with any other legitimate player.

However, if any of your accounts obtained wealth by rule breaking activity for example macro use (botting) or real world trading (buying gold or items from 3rd parties) then all your accounts will be banned.

Similarly, multi-logged accounts must not interact with each other to exploit gameplay mechanics, such as attempting to rig the result of a minigame.

Trading wealth or items between your own accounts is done entirely at your own risk. Unconventional trade methods like drop-, death- or trust-trades are particularly risky and we strongly advise against them.

You may log into multiple accounts across all versions of RuneScape at the same time, however any account you are using must not be involved in any rule breaking or exploitative activity. Any penalties or sanction for such behaviour will be applied to all of your accounts.

Why do we have this rule?
We have this rule as part of our procedures to monitor and deal with people who choose to real world trade, gold farm and use macros. People who move wealth between accounts they own and have gained that wealth unfairly or by breaking other game rules can expect to be banned.


Buying, selling or sharing an account
Each account should only be used by one person. Never share your account with anyone else, doing so will likely get the account banned. Players may not sell, share, transfer or lend their account to anyone else. Players should not accept an account that anybody else offers, as they may be stolen, and this could lead to your own account being disabled!

Why do we have this rule?
We have this rule for a number of reasons:
- We have this rule as part of our procedures to preserve the integrity of the game and player’s hard earned achievements. The hiscores are there to measure the achievement of an individual, not a group of players or 3rd party. Also, if disputes occur or friendships breakdown, it can lead to at least one of the parties permanently losing access to the account or having it stripped of wealth and items.
- Additionally, many of the accounts on sale are stolen, and people who share accounts run the risk that the person using the account won't give it back, or that the person will break a game rule causing the account to be banned or muted for which the account creator will be accountable.

I can see that this has attracted a lot of attention, so to clarify:

The rule has not changed, and as MMGs comments suggest, these days we apply the rule with a common sense approach (as we do all rules). If anyone is multi-logging and transferring wealth, this will attract our suspicion, and the accounts involved will be investigated. If there is nothing untoward in how that wealth was generated, then we will take no action – if, however, any of the wealth was generated through any rule breaking activity (e.g. gold farming, botting, RWT), then we will take action against all accounts involved.

From the player perspective, the same common sense rule applies - if you think that you might be breaking a rule, or what you are doing is not in the spirit of fair play, then you are best off avoiding it as this could result in action being taken against your account.

We don’t want to stifle genuine game play, and we hope you’ll agree that this approach is best for all.

Kiwi Cacher said:
Sorry, but how does someone transferring millions to their new account promote genuine game play?

If anything it does the complete opposite.


If a player has earned the wealth legitimately, and is trading the wealth legitimately, it's up to them what they do with it. People did it before I made the post, people will do it after - it's part of the modern game.

-Mod Balance
 

I'm not going to be drawn into answering every individual question because it'll take far too long.

The answer to pretty much everything, though, is that you can log into more than one account at a time. Provided you do not break any rules whilst doing so, then we will not penalise players. With that said, we hope that everyone plays within the spirit of the game.

So trading between accounts is OK after all then, since it's impossible for them to enforce otherwise.  That's what they seem to be saying.

My stance is that I kind of agree with it, but the part where people can just transfer millions and millions to their brand new account to give them a head start I'm not so sure about.

 

It allows for people to get from 35 total level to Max + Comp within 100 days *coughcoughAlkancough*

 

Then again, they *did* obtain all of that wealth legitimately, so I'm kind of on the fence.

I don't see a problem with it, if you've earnt it legitimately on another account and you're trading it to yourself on a noob account. It should be okay, as long as you've earnt it techincally it's still yours just on a different account.

Runescape is a haven..

Only issue is that this allows a person to run many accounts at once and earn more than one legit account could. The rule was never about botting and it shouldn't be now.

R.I.P. The olde nite. A legend is gone but not forgotten.

If you run many accounts at once, then the gold wasn't earned legitimately.

What if you've multilogged like 4 accounts on different worlds just fishing lrc? afking it, would that be counted as not legitimately?

My gut says to ignore all of this because it was mod balance who said it

 

This kid should go back to moderating runezone because he has no idea what he is doing.

I'd wait for a legit jmod confirmation before doing anything stupid.

I'm glad Jagex's stance on multilog is changed.

 

Some minigames nowadays are dead and require multiple players to join at a time. Multilogging greatly eliminates the need to constantly find players to participate in these minigames. It gets particularly annoying for minigame music unlocks and requirements (playing 1 game of Soul Wars for Nomad's Requiem - a game needs 20 people).

It also opens up the doors for obtaining 65-75k xp/hr at Vinesweeper, possibly even more.

 

It opens up running your own runes for Runecrafting - have one account stand at an altar and run/bank on several others (using the run time to bank on other accounts), I imagine 3-4 runners could be used.

 

You can now obtain 401 MA rank entirely by yourself.

 

You can now do 5 man larges. By yourself.

 

You can now circumvent the 4 hour GE limits.

 

You can now trap and do Dwarf Guards on any world w/o fear of crashers or other players messing it up.

 

You can now use skillers to gather from Warbands and die to yourself for loot.

 

You can now do sinkholes with yourself and win most of the time.

 

 

 

 

 

I for one would prefer none of the above be allowed.

I would prefer there to be multiple characters tied to one account with a shared separate bank space

 

and if they really insist, it could be a paid feature because this isn't really that necessary for most people

 

y'know, like how things are done in the 21st century

I find it funny that you ask a question by quoting a post that directly answers it :3

New post by Mod Balance. Edited into op. Be cautious sometimes even Jmods are wrong. But that answer on page 57 was rather straight forward.

And until they change the rules officially, logging into more than one account at a time will be breaking the rules, so.... yeah.

Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

So it's ok to transfer wealth between accounts... but where do you draw the line between what is legitimate wealth and not? Not all forms of alt abuse require accounts to be logged in at the same time. There's daily treasure hunter keys and MTK for example.

You flame her, then say she's correct? Nice one. Edit- nvm. I read this wrong. That's hilarious though.

 

People been multi logging since classic. Never heard of a ban for it. It's convenient and I am glad they don't care. If they banned people for multi logging, cya top 30.

 

As I post this I'm on my other tif acc on Google chrome.

I am not a skiller, but i do some skills.
