Recently, Jagex has been unsuccessful at preventing real world item trading and macroing. There are, in fact, more real world item traders and macroers than ever before. Even Jagex mods are macroing and lying. Take this example:
I asked a Jagex mod about summoning and two pictures that I was wondering about being faked or not. [Link] What I got for a reply is an automated message about the holiday season being busy.
I would like to bring to mind another time that I asked a Jagex mod a question in October. The moderator in that replied was (I think) a real person, but they said that Jagex never automates anything. I find that hard to believe.
Ryan wrote "Jagex are the biggest hypocrites on the internet." And they are. All of the new updates in December 2007 were to prevent goldfarming, macroing, and real world item trading. They failed miserably, or as Warren would say, UNSUCSSSPHUL. All of these updates and nothing happened to real world item trading that these updates were to prevent. Even worse, they’re going on stronger than ever! And it’s worse than that! Jagex didn’t even put a dent in the rulebreakers, but made quite a few of the legitimate players quit out of frustration. The economy crashed, we can’t give gifts, and we can’t pk!
Okay, maybe it won’t be that bad, but who knows, we’re talking about Jagex here, remember?
I’ll close this article out with a quote from Alex:
It’s pathetic. I remember appealing on an old account for macroing and they replied saying "We have conclusive evidence that you were in control of the account at the time."
If I was in control of my **** account how the hell was I macroing?
