Mod Reach has been "dismissed" from Jagex (make of that verb what you will) as of today, apparently, due to "serious misuse of moderator privileges."

 

 

It is with regret that we have some sad and unfortunate news to share with you. Today, Mod Reach was dismissed from employment at Jagex, following an investigation into serious misuse of moderator privileges. This was flagged to us by system checks which track and log code changes made to the live game. We were able to intercept the intended changes before anything could impact the game economy.

 
While staff changes are not something we tend to share so publically, when both the integrity of the game and the team are put at risk we felt duty bound to make the community aware of what has happened.
 
Obviously this unexpected news means we need some time to collect our thoughts and formulate plans for future projects. Once we have pulled all of this together we will of course share and discuss this with the community. Due to the sensitivities of the situation we are not going to be able to give any more detail at this time.
 
We are determined to ensure Mod Reach’s departure does not detract from the great start to the year we have had. We want both the team and community to go from strength to strength and to take Old School RuneScape forward onto bigger and better things for many years to come.
 
Thank you for your ongoing support.

 

I may have been living under a rock but I did not see this coming. I know there were issues with other moderators and unconfirmed reports/screenshots of abuse in the past floating around Reddit and whatnot, but is anyone as surprised as me to see this statement from Jagex? I know they aren't ready to share this information of specifically what happened yet, but I suppose it's good to see them taking a stand against this sort of stuff.

Strange news. Didn't expect this at all. 

 

Considering he started to work at Jagex in 2010, kind of weird he would do something like this now. Must be a reason.

This is just a wild guess, but from the sound of the announcement, it's possible that he introduced a logic bomb or something similar.

I think it had something to do with messing with the drop rates of the Corporeal Beast. Apparently this guy has always been shady and friendly with the dicers/rwters, so not really a surprise.

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

Major blow to the OSRS Team, and it'll have a slight impact on RS3 too as they're gonna need to drag a couple of devs over to compensate. Pretty sure the coding was a 50:50 split between Ash/Reach.

I'm more or less guessing this is something to do with management within jagex? Or perhaps a factor that plays part is how horribly devs are paid to do their job.

Shame he's killed his career within the gaming industry forgood =(

Dan was always nice and helpful towards me and at least was honest about how he often felt about the direction rs was going

So...not to bump an old topic without cause, but I found this tweet browsing on another site about the increased ruby bolt spec (from the Diary reward) being buffed to (unjustifiably high) levels at Corp, at least temporarily before they were redoing it...think that potentially had anything to do with things?

Apparently there was a bug that made you invincible and so people made dozens of bots to farm corp. One guy made like $50,000 from drops

YB and Quint were doing it and probably others. Purple leaked it on reddit because of personal problems with YB and Quint.

 

 

Jagex doesn't patch glitches, other glitchers always patch glitches because of drama in the community <_<

Ive heard he was trying to fix the 6hr NMZ afking even though it didnt pass in the polls.

 

If so thats idiotic to fire him, considering nerfing the free NMZ runes never passed either
