They had to make it harder to create accounts from the start of the problems but that’s something they said they basically won’t ever consider so it’s almost impossible to stop rmt and bots. Look at power pass, imagine being a new player, having to deal with gold hold, insane inflation and you don’t even get the 2 free vern passes.
I dunno, people seem to be too scared and don’t actually understand why accounts are getting flagged. I have Bussed, sold a level 9 gem, and sold quite a few legendary books in the last two weeks, no flag, no ban. The only thing ive seen of an account getting flagged for sheer amount of gold was the 500k from Alan. No normal player will ever run into this, in fact Alan may be the only person in the entire game stupid enough to collect 500k within an hour from someone. We still don’t know if his automated ban will hold because its very possible he RMTd pre argos and now that they are looking at the account they might find something to keep the account banned.
I dunno, seems silly to live in fear when there is a single example of something getting auto flagged, and the amount in that flag was something players just wont have happen.
Edit: it seems Alan did indeed RMT in volume of 800k gold. Ban holds for 8 months.
Same, you’d have to keep doing some really shady stuff to get your account flagged then banned. Also that guy Alan had like full lvl 10 gems and 1400+ characters when Argos just came out. If he’s a legit whale, he should show his steam purchase history.
This is just propaganda spun by RMT buyers/sellers. The only people being banned for any of the above are those that are buying large sums of RMT Gold and are trying to shield/spin a narrative to be unbanned by community vote.
S> Vykas NHH 100,000g - Totally not their fault that it was RMT Gold and they just didn’t know…
Very happy RMTers are getting banned, better late than never.
Considering all these made up stories RMTers are coming up with it’s clear their flag system is doing a fantastic job and the specialists that manually review and verify it was correct are also doing great work.
