The exchange of virtual currencies against real-world currencies can cause problems for a variety of online games, upsetting in-game economics, destabilizing player experiences or making games into pay-to play scenarios. In RuneScape it is the case that Madden 23 coins trading its digital 'gold' has caused a lot of problems and has led to bots mine the resource, and claims that the capability to buy 'bonds' within the game for real money amounts gambling.
Now, Jagex has revealed strategies to tackle the issue. In a blog entry and attributed to "The RuneScape Team", Jagex claims that "gold purchased through RWT is a problem in all online games that use an exchangeable currency" and, despite the fact that its "Anti-Cheating Team has done a lot in the fight against RWT sellers in as well out" but it is taking stronger measures with immediate impact.
With the "growing team " and "improved technology", Jagex says it is not just targeting sellers of gold and other resources via RWT but also buyers. The intention is to stem the demand, and also the supply.
Jagex says it will have to send "messages to those whom we've found engaging on RWT" within "the coming hours". "For anyone who has been involved, we'd like to madden 23 coins buy make clear that this is your sole and only warning," they added.
Other measures the developer is likely to consider as punishment for RWT activities are expected to include wealth removal , which is basically removing ill-gotten gains from players' accounts at the level of servers - as well as possible bans.
