So i just got hacked lost everything blablabla.

Jagex, do you think I can move in 30 minutes to another country or continent? Does this flag something for you or do you think teleportation is real?

Also possibility to force log-out.

Now give me my money for these ideas, that are really not that advanced.
Oh boy do I love clicking!

With VPN's, yes. It's entirely possible for someone to move 30 minutes to "another country or continent".
IP address never was a 'catch-all' for location.

You're also already able to force-lock your account. Part 2: Recovery Request

Idk about VPN, maybe use a setting to indicate you are using a VPN? Not that difficult to think of....

Also accounts that bot i.e. suddenly get a huge exp. boosts are flagged. But accounts that suddenly receive o lets say 1B from maybe 12-30 different accounts in 30-60 minutes aren't? Weird.

This isn't a new issue, i'm not the first and won't be the last to complain about this.
How difficult is it to hire someone to look at twitch 24/7 to shut down these phising accounts asap?

That force-lock request is a joke. Most players instantly realise what happened but can't do anything about it. It's kind of like locking your bike, standing next to it and seeing someone use a grinding wheel on the lock but not being able to say or see anything.

I've been ranting all day :P but I'm sure nothing will change.

Look at twitch 24/7 ???
I'd rather shoot myself than do this job...
All the money in the world wouldn't be worth it.

Also, out of curiosity, how did it happen?
I'm trying to understand how they got past the authenticator to be precise.

Wrong forum.
Also it's your responsibility to not give out your password. Maybe next time you'll look at that offer to be PMod or to win an Amradyl godsword and think twice.
