The company cites the "growing team and improved methods", Jagex says it will not be merely in the business of acquiring OSRS Gold and sources through RWT but also buyers. Its goal is to cut down the demand and also the supply.
Jagex claims it will start sending "messages to players whom we've found engaging to engage in"RWT" within "the coming hours". "For anyone who has been involved, we'd like to be clear - this is your sole or only warning" it added.
Other measures that the developer may take as punishments for RWT activity include wealth removal , which essentially removing ill-gotten gains from players' accounts at an individual server level. It could also mean potential bans.
RuneScape's PvP aspect, also known as"the Duel Arena, will also have stricter rules in place. Jagex claims that the feature "has been a flashpoint for this kind of toxic behavior" and that 38 percent of bans associated with RWT games to date come from that aspect that the player plays. Jagex says this is equivalent up to "thousands of bans per month".
As a result, the developer appears to be going with the nuclear alternative, saying "we're contemplating in the near future to remove in the Duel Arena out of RuneScape completely." Until then the company will introduce "some temporary steps" to tidy up PvP "until our team of developers is able to release major updates that fully substitutes for the Duel Arena next year."
The rules will have a cap at the maximum amount GP or gold point and players will be able to stake an event in the Duel Arena RS Gold Buy. Participants will be allowed to wager "no less than 50m GP for each duel". Additional measures aren't elaborated on yet.
