Title says it all really, OK so it doesn't say it all but to a degree it is the case.
I have not written for a long time and the chance is I will probably not write for a while again.
I have started a new business selling dragons, not only dragons but other gifts as well, take a look at this.
My new website bestvaluebuys.co.uk sell a range of collectible gifts.
I also set up a blog bestvaluebuys.co.uk/blog
As you can imagine it takes up a lot of my time and my Runescape time has taken a back seat, I still love playing it but my business must take priority.
Anyway thanks for reading my blog in the past, I hope the information here is not to outdated, I am likely to return to regular posts but not in the near future.
Enjoy your scaping and have a fun.
Doubling money the most obvious of scams appears to be the most productive.
I stood in the GE watching the double money scams, there are lots of scammers doing the double money scam, I counted 5 scammers in a small section of the GE, I know its not funny but to watch what can only be described as fools ignoring loads of people saying its a scam so greedy that they ignore the warning for the promise of great wealth.
In a 5 minute period I saw 5 people get scammed 3 of them having friends do false trades to add a degree of honesty to the scammer, all of the scammed players traded cash, you can always tell when they have traded cash because the money doubler logs out directly afterwards, the last scammer I watched before posting this had the cheek to say "wow scammed 509K" then logged.
This is the most obvious scam for many reasons, why does the scammer not have loads of cash if they can double money? why do it for others? even if they are quitting why do they want to hang around to be nice to players? if they can double money they can be reported for bug abuse and banned.
Luckily for the scammer there are so many scammers, bots and rule breakers that Jagex will never be able to regain control so the chance of getting banned is remote, even if they do get banned they have probably transfered their ill gotten gains to their main.
I have always supported Jagex's ban on publishing scams on the forums to prevent people copying, but anyone can go anywhere to learn the scams that it is pointless now.
Just a note, a member of my clan traded with a scammer doubling 100k, the scammer traded 200k back expecting to get a higher offer next time but my friend said thank you and went on with her business, this was funny because the scammer got stitched up but one of the scammers I observed in the 5 minute period logged out with just 20k, only try this if you are prepared to lose the cash, you may be able to swindle more cash out of the scammer if you look wealthy.
BTW I voted no.
As a follow up to my post recently titled Jagex have sold their soul having given it a bit of time to calm down have things got better?
First of all I would like to add this picture.
This was just a snapshot of a small area, people are fighting for scamming area, I love the word legit, does that mean they are a legitimate player doing a legitimate gamble that will pay out, or will they leg-it if you win? I know which I suspect.
This is just for the flower scam, every where you go there is at least 1 scam or another, makes me think what is the point of the Runescape rules.
Should Jagex just release Runescape as a free for all with no rules and let everyone fend for themselves.
I have taken a look at the rules.
Under Honour heading
Bots are wide spread, they are everywhere, I have reported bots and they are still playing.
Business appears to be booming for them, should they still be trading or able to get the resources to sell?
Loads of people selling accounts, RWT sites selling accounts,
I am sure it happens but unable to comment as it can not be witnesed by other players easily
Has happened, I have reported and I believe they were banned
Wide spread, every town, every server, every day.
Who cares about adverts.
Flower scam has spread like weeds, just being visible is encouraging others to try it to name just one.
Under the heading respect
- Discrimination of any kind, whether based on another person's race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation or religious beliefs
I have reported racist names and they have been removed
Always has always will happen
PVP what do they expect
Hmmm lets remove the profanity filter and make it so they can really break this rule
Flower game 100k - claws, 500 k ags, Flower game 100k - claws, 500 k ags, Flower game 100k - claws, 500 k ags,,
- Asking for or providing contact information such as full names, ages, postal or email addresses, telephone numbers or bank details
Reportable and banable
Reportable and ignorable
It happens, does it get banned? probably
We can still report for the above rules with the exception of bots, there are so many that if you report them all you get banned for reporting for a period of time.
Jagex have made it so you can break most of the above rules a lot easier, should you be banned for something they have made possible for you to do?
DVLA in the UK sell number plates that you can make look like a names for profit, however if you space them so it looks like the name you can be fined and have the registration revoked, Jagex are not alone in doing things for profit that go against the appropriate rules.
Jagex need to review the rules to make them more appropriate for todays game play, perhaps they should just scrap rules and let anarchy rule the game.
When the free trade and wilderness was first announced as making a come back I anticipated it being as bad as it was before, I did not anticipate how much worse is would become.
I had an interesting series of PM's the other day as I was mining in the living rock caverns.
I missed a screeny of the start of the conversation which read something like, you have been reported for scamming and you will be banned unless you give me your username and passsword.
So what do I gain by giving my user name and password? will they just forget about it and let me carry on?
If he could not work out my username then he wouldn't be able to get a job as a toddler let alone a Jagex mod.
I did not reply to any of his threats because I did not want a confrontation, I did not ignore either because I found it funny.
Unfortunately I didnt get the 2 and 1 minute warnings so he either got banned or realised that a level 138 with 2404 total level isnt foolish enough to break the rules and get banned or hacked.
There is another random player who keeps asking me how much cash I have, I guessed it was him on another account but I have no proof, I do not speak to random players unless they appear to have an IQ higher than a gerbil.
There are so many people scamming, luring and hacking that players must get caught out or they wouldnt do it, I guess its everyones job to educate the younger or inexperienced players now it has become a fact of everyday life.
