Today, Jagex has laid out strategies to combat the issue. In a blog post, credited to "The RuneScape Team", Jagex states that "gold purchased through RWT is a concern in RuneScape Gold any online game featuring the possibility of trading currency" as well as that even though its "Anti-Cheating Team has taken a number of steps to tackle RWT sellers both inside and out of the game" but it is taking stronger steps with immediate effective.
Citing the "growing team and enhanced technology", Jagex says it will no longer be seeking out sellers of gold and resources via RWT but as well buyers. The idea is to curb the demand, and supply.
Jagex announces that it will be sending "messages to players who we've identified as being involved within"RWT" within "the coming hours". "For those who have been involved, we want to be clear - this is your single or only warning" it added.
Other measures that developers will take as punishments for RWT activities are expected to consist of wealth removal - which is getting rid of gains that are not legitimately earned from players' accounts at a server level - and potential bans.
RuneScape's PvP feature, known as the Duel Arena, will also have stricter rules in place. Jagex says the feature "has been a flashpoint in this kind of toxic behavior", and that 38 per cent the bans for RWT games to date are due to this part which the players play RuneScape Gold 2007. Jagex claims that this equates in "thousands of bans per month".
