Posted On 09/30/2017 01:05:14 by march

This past weekend, Runefest 2017 hosted the finals of a RuneScapetournament with a whopping $20, 000 cash reward for the winner, in addition an additional $10, 000 to be donated to some charity of the player’s choice. Five times later, and after allegations of cheating and foul play, the winner still hasn’t been determined.

The actual competitors faced away in the 2007 develop of RuneScape, known as “Old School RuneScape. ” Because RuneScape is a massively multiplayer online game, this tournament takes place on a competitors server with particular rules. The top 2, 000 competitive gamers as of July 27 could qualify for entry in the tournament, which involved a week associated with leveling up, after that Cheap RS 2007 Gold battling. The last gamer standing would win the $20K.

Jagex-the game’s developer and the hosts of the tournament-made a change to the guidelines this year. Once the 2, 000 initial combatants had winnowed down to just 200 gamers, Jagex divided those players onto 4 islands of 50 players each. Seven of the players within the Red Island rejected to fight each other and instead appeared to form an alliance. Jagex told these types of players they had in order to either fight each other or be disqualified. They all ended up obtaining the axe.

In a statement, Jagex noted that these players were “warned repeatedly, and we arrived at out many, many times to them. ” This disqualification, however , had been just the first of numerous problems that arose during the tournament.

Over the course of the event, several competitors obtained disconnected at random, leading players to posit that an organized number of DDOS attacks have been launched against all of them. Eventually, the last gamer standing was 5PLUS50K12, a player who is actually part of a much-maligned RuneScape clan called Reign of Fear. 5PLUS50K12 was named the winner at first, but soon after, infidelity accusations emerged.

Numerous competitive RuneScape gamers are part of teams, which are fan-run factions; these clans almost all have long-standing beefs with one another. Reign associated with Terror has been charged of issuing DDOS attacks during past tournaments, although Reign of Terror’s clan rules do disallow DDOS attacks. A number of other clans have also been charged of using this tactic, but it’s a tough claim to show.

After the tournament, however , Jagex confirmed that 5PLUS50K12 had done something shady. Based on Jagex’s statement, he was “responsible for your creation of a bot farm, ” which would’ve been very useful if he had already been DDOSing anybody. Due to that, he had been disqualified. The statement went on to say:

This then raises the question of how to proceed with the prize money. At the moment we’re talking about what to do with it. A few ideas we have at the moment are another charitable monetary gift, dispersing the money among the finalists, or transporting it over to the following season (or a mix of all of these).

1 big question remains for the competitors, though: How did these types of DDOS attacks occur? An attacker would have needed their opponents’ IP addresses. The best way to get them would be to possess a man on the inside.

Numerous fans have directed fingers at Jed Sanderson, one of Jagex’s employees and tournament organizers, who often posts on social mediaabout Reign associated with Terror. Jagex acknowledged the “allegations associated with staff Cheap Runescape 2007 Gold favouritism” in their statement, but failed to clarify whether these types of allegations had merit. (Jagex did not react to request for comment before press time. )

Since this tournament lasts so long and involves so many gamers, it’s not an option to just call for a rematch. Debate has raged all week within the RuneScape community about who deserves the prize. Jagex comes with an unpopular decision to create.
