hi

I was under the impression that cheating on a seasonal hiscore was just something jagex didn't care about, but I have seen multiple posters who are now saying that mod kelpie did in fact remove people and ban them

now I am wondering, how do I report someone for this? I participated in a recurring seasonal which was not very popular but was definitely abused, and the hiscore itself still very clearly shows the abuse.

does jagex enforce this for all seasonal hiscores? Or just the popular ones? Because I worked very hard but basically gave up because I caught people just using alt accounts to cheat, sometimes jumping a week's worth of progress in a matter of hours, and if they are actually taking action I would like to bring it to their attention because this kind of thing really ruined the seasonal for me and others and I feel like it contributed to this seasonal being discontinued altogether, since they did not even care about the abuse

thx

If they'll ban every booster in minigames you dig an even deeper grave for minigames.
Not justifying the multiloggers for exploiting but there are plenty of peeps that boost it with friends/clannies...

The problem with minigames is that they have so few people doing it (and being able to do it on every world

well I'm not here to debate that I just wanted to know if this was true and jagex had any plans to be consistent with it, because I know HUGE abusers of this for multiple seasons in a row even (no reward for this, just to grief anyone else from winning the prize)

personally I would not mind if boosting in general resulted in a ban. it's basically bug abuse and these kind of people ruin communities and make it disadvantageous to even play the game the way jagex spent hundreds of hours designing it to be played

We all remember Flare...

Meanwhile, something like the raffle that a lot of people pays attention to gets abused to the point Gilly is no more.

No surprise that seasonal hi score gets abused too; whereupon, in my opinion, it would be unfair to ban those who did a few mini games with alts to tick off a comp cape or achievement or whatever because the mini game is pretty much dead. EG: Fist of Guthix, Stealing Creation. And because the mini game is so rarely played, these alt users end up on the hi score by accident.

I'd understand if the abuse was solely for the hi score, as no acheivement requires a player to repeat alt rigging hundreds of times. That clearly would be for hi scores.

I myself use alts for activities that do not affect other players, eg: dungeoneering (Jmods said allowed), bossing, deathmatch to unlock new wilderness tele tabs (only if no one else is in queue), fight pit (for that one Karamjan achievement and could not find a partner even though I offered to pay 5m on ge world 2. No one could be bothered even for that).

What I advocate is this: Simply remove Rule 6 (The rule against alt usage and life would be so much simpler). And if alt usage is detrimental to the game, simply enforce restrictions to dissuade or prevent alt using such as level restrictions.

fair enough, but this wasn't a comp cape req. there's lot of seasonals out there are purely for FUN (example: robbers caught during heist) but one bad egg wanted to cheat and block everyone else from winning. and I've gotten in trouble for mentioning it in the past, because even without naming anyone I am not even allowed to talk about it! it's like jagex defends these people so I'm happy to hear they are banning and would like to speak to jmod or have some formal way of reporting it. the worst part is these seasonals still are available to view today but jagex has hidden their links from the hiscores. if you have the direct link they still work, but it's like jagex KNOWS they were abused and instead of fixing the problem they just hid the links... I have them saved on another computer but I am sure a jmod can retrieve them if they really honestly care to bother... @@@ @@@

well good news I just looked up my own profile and it turns out that when you place on a seasonal it is stored on your profile forever, so I was able to find every seasonal and it is permanently listed there. I just want to see if mods have any plans to do anything about it or they only ban when it's a more "important" seasonal because it's unfair all around @@@ @@@

I really think this alt infestation is an issue. It's an unintended consequence that's hard to deal with, but at least they took the right steps with the raffle, but they need to do more.

They only went after people using their own alt accounts and account sharing like 3 people playing in shifts on 1 account etc. They did not care if people got aided via their friends dozens of alts.

Last I heard they said in the future they're just gonna try to make seasonals activities which you can't boost.
