If AGS is too afraid to perma ban RMT’ers because they’re a potential source of income, at least do the following:
- Remove all gear, gems and accessories from all characters.
- Remove all gold from the account
- Mail them a set of 1302 gear for T3 characters and have them “start over”
The problem of just setting their gold to zero or even negative gold is that they still keep all their 1500+ gear and lvl 10 gems. That’s a ton of net worth that’s untouched. Resetting them to the start of T3 strips them of all their ill-gotten gains, but hey, they get to keep their character and all horizontal progression so they may likely stick with the game.
