Now, Jagex has laid out plans to combat the issue OSRS Gold. In a blog article that is credited to "The RuneScape Team", the publisher states that "gold purchased through RWT is a major issue in all online games that use an option to trade currency" as well as that even though the "Anti-Cheating Team has done much to tackle RWT sellers both inside both the games and outside" It will soon be taking more drastic measures with immediate beginning.
The company cites a "growing team and enhanced tools", Jagex says it will no longer just be looking for sellers of gold or sources through RWT but as well buyers. The goal is to reduce the demand and also the supply.
Jagex says it will be sending "messages to players who we've identified as being involved in RWT" within "the next few hours". "For anyone who was involved, we'd like to make it clear that this is your one or only warning" they added.
Other measures the developer is likely to look at as punishments to punish RWT activity are set to consist of wealth removal - basically taking away gains made by players' accounts on the server level, as well as possible bans.
RuneScape's PvP component, dubbed"the Duel Arena, will also have stricter rules in place. Jagex says the feature "has been a cause for this toxic behaviour" and that 38 percent of all bans for RWT activity up until now come from that aspect of the game. Jagex says this is equivalent approximately "thousands of bans every month".
This is why the developer appears to be going with the nuclear alternative, saying "we're planning in the long run to remove in the Duel Arena out of RuneScape entirely." Until then, it will implement "some short-term measures" to improve PvP "until our development teams can bring a major update that fully eliminates Duel Arena next year."
These will include a cap on the amount of GP or gold point that players can bet on an event at the Duel Arena Buy RS Gold. Participants will be allowed to bet "no greater than fifty million GP for each duel". The additional measures are not defined yet.
