Follow Up: Discounted Key Oddment Exploit - August 24th 2020

Originele tekst

Hey all,

We have been investigating an instance in which it was possible to cash out items receiving more oddments than the cost of a Treasure Hunter Key whilst on discount, allowing players to generate a surplus of oddments.

This discount became available in-game around 11:30 game time. We were notified around 18:00 of the exploit and at 19:10 we removed the discount with a hotfix.

In total we've identified around 4000 players who attempted the exploit. There was no noticeable effect on either the economy or XP gained on the day as a result of the exploit due to the low volume of users who abused the exploit.

Following our investigations we have categorised the players into three separate groups:
  • Players who may have tested the exploit will not have action taken against their
  • 835 accounts have clearly exploited the discount and will be banned for 72 hours
  • 65 accounts have severely exploited the discount and will be banned for 14 days, they can also expect experience and Item roll backs
4 of the accounts above have been proactively so that we can do further investigations before taking a final action.

We want to take this opportunity to remind everyone that we do not tolerate bug abuse or exploits in RuneScape. We hope that the actions and communication today make this clear.

The RuneScape Team
