RuneScape was such a key reference point for the game

    The RuneScape games will be Steamforged's 12th edition of a video-based game for tabletop. The previous adaptations included those of the Monster Hunter: World board game, which made PS3.4 million through Kickstarter in 2021 with RS Gold.

    The exchange of virtual currency against real-world currencies can cause problems for a variety of online games, causing disruption to in-game economics, destabilizing player experiences, or turning games into Pay-to-win games. In RuneScape the trade of its virtual gold has been a problem, leading to bots mining the resource, and claims that the capability to purchase bonds in game in real money amounts to gambling.

    In the meantime, Jagex has announced strategies to address the issue. In a blog entry that is credited to "The RuneScape Team", Jagex states that "gold purchased through RWT is a major issue in any online game featuring tradeable currencies" however, even though the "Anti-Cheating Team has done much to tackle RWT sellers both in as well out", it will be taking more drastic measures with immediate effective.

    Citing the "growing staff and new equipment", Jagex says it will no longer be targeting sellers of gold and other resources through RWT but also buyers. The goal is to reduce the demand, and the supply.

    Jagex promises to send "messages to players who we've identified as being involved with RWT" within "the coming hours". "For anyone who has been involved, we want to emphasize that this is your one or only warning" Jagex added.

    Other measures the developer will think of as punishments for RWT activities consist of wealth removal, which means getting rid of gains that are not legitimately earned from players' accounts on an individual server level. possible bans.

    RuneScape's PvP element, which is known as the Duel Arena, will also be subject to more strict rules. Jagex claims that the feature "has been a trigger for the shady behaviour" and that 38 percent of bans for RWT games to date result from this particular aspect to the gameplay. It says that already amounts around "thousands of bans per month".

    In the end, the developer appears to be taking the nuclear option, saying "we're thinking about the long-term for phasing out down the Duel Arena out ofBuy RS3 Gold entirely." In the meantime, it will implement "some small-scale steps" to clean up PvP "until our team of developers is able to create an extensive update that fully substitutes for the Duel Arena next year."
