Before you begin to read my post, Listen to this music and relax…
Welcome back, my few but faithful readers. Today, I will talk about the Ban system for Runescape. Now, don’t get me wrong or anything, but this ban system is pretty decent. I believe the employers of Jagex actually read each one thoroughly. The problem is that, they have literally no sympathy or common sense…
I will show you examples of accounts that I had. The reason why this account was banned was because I supposedly did “real world trading”.
Now this is a picture of my main I had. It clearly shows why I was banned. I supposedly did real world trading. Now, I had this account ever since classic. This was my first account and I had him for over 9 years. He had exactly 23 million GP and around 20 million worth in items. Back in 2007, that was enough to buy a Santa hat or 2 Easter eggs.
How did Jagex ban this account? One day, while training, they disconnected me and told me to check my email. Well, I did and I found out I was banned. Instead of being a civilized person and dealing this matter in a gentleman like way, I went “berserk”. To visualize how frustrated I was, picture losing all your life saving because the stock market crashed. You may think I’m over exaggerating, but on that fateful day, my heart lost something it and was never fully able to regain again.
I wouldn’t have actually been furious if I did what Jagex accused me of. What made it even more worst, was the fact that they did not give me any FUCKING evidence. A reasonable response would have helped my aching heart a lot.
The evidence that I was given…
At that time, I was only sixteen (16) years old. Call me old fashion, but a sixteen year old can not do “real world trading” without his or her parents approval and credit card. At this time, I became a member through my parents since I was too poor and naive.
It’s quiet sad and simply stupid since I have not broken any rules before October 4, 2006. I was an honest player and never macored/bot my whole life. It was the only rule I broke because I had not read the rules at that time. If the staff member had used their brain, they would have at least considered, that the guy who they were trying to ban had not broken any rules except 1 in a period over 6 years… By some strange random change of heart, out of a sudden, in over 6 years of honesty, he’s going to start “real world trading”? That hurts… How sad… I’m sure if the staff of Jagex ever reads this thread, they will say something in lines of this, “Dear, editor of Runescape Truth, we are sorry for your account. We understand you have put a lot of hours and commitment to this game and are grateful for your involvement of our ever growing community, but we have reviewed the evidence of the crime you have committed and must use the evidence obtained and punish you on those basis”. Thanks you Jagex for nothing…
For those of you who care curious on what I said to break rule 6… The evidence.
I know many of you will ask me, Why I hadn’t apologized? Well, for that appeal, I used it to try to appeal the permanent ban. This is why it has flaws. I will tell you the flaw for Jagex ban system in the conclusion.
1) Well, They must first fix the appeal system. It has some flaws. Readers, an IMPORTANT WAY TO GET 50% chance of getting UNBANNED! Well, it doesn’t matter on what the Fuck you do, since you can get like 10 appeal chance. That’s right… How? Simply break some rules that are considered minor. They will give you a warning or a minor offense charge. Example, you could say “I’m a homo”. Do not use the appeal to apologize. Save it, and keep doing it until you get 8 of them. So, when you actually do get banned for a major mistake, you can use the 8 appeal on the serious charge. Remember, you must specifically say you want to use this appeal on the “month/date/year ban (the main one)” It does work. The staff of Jagex does read your appeals. I hope this helped.
*One of Jagex Flaws*
2) The staff of Jagex must show a little more compassion. I believe in the company of Jagex, the workers are inside their own small world. They are probably friends with one another and go to bars and hiking trips amongst the company. They do not understand how much this simple cyber game can affect the minds of the youth. How a simple appeal of a ban can make or break a child’s mentality. I understand they receive thousands of appeals each day, all pertaining to the same crap, the almost identical message, the mundane appeals of childish kids, however the kids do mean their apologizes. Common sense is lost with the staff of Jagex.
You could have started Runescape since classic and not break a single rule, but if you break a major rule, regardless of if you did or did not. There will be only one response from them. You’re fucked. They do not care if you are innocent. To them, you are just a naughty boy who broke their rule. Now that, gentleman and ladies, that is an iron fist.
Message to the staff of Jagex:
As you probably know from the message I posted above, you can see that I was banned. I hope one day you learn that on the forums and in the game, one must act mature and sensible. I am sure many of the staffs do and I am not questioning your duties, however there are some staffs who have not learned the reality of this world. They are some who are still stuck in their childish youth. These staffs have lived in their own society throughout their lives. They conform to nothing and in their bubbles, hatred has grown. They share their thoughts amongst their narrow minded friends, who are equal, if not just as bad. Runescape, you must remember is a game that is mainly played by children. One bad seed in the company of Jagex can affect many. I understand there are hundreds, if not thousands of employees hired by the company Jagex. I am not asking to remove these staffs since it is impossible and everyone has their freedom of speech and thoughts. I just hope one day, you improve your appeal system.
Thank you to all my readers. I appreciate it and this article was not meant for sympathy. I hope you enjoyed it.
