Cool. No appeal process or anything, just bloop, years of work and hundreds RuneScape gold of bucks down the drain.I managed to get my account back from this. It took a couple of tries, but I believe about 2 years back I got it back.How? I have sent SO many messages through the years. The problem is the claim is botting, which instantly causes it to have a zero appeals procedure.
It’s a recent thing too. A lot of people that were permabanned from years past have been unbanned thanks to appeals. I don’t understand how they do it, but if you have not attempted an appeal in the past several decades, it’s worth trying again in the event that you want to play your previous account. Yea I had the same claim against my accounts. I want to mention that there was an appeal button, but I could have only emailed support directly. Either way that was their response. “After a detailed review of the accounts, we identified that a period of unusual activity around the time of the offence. Consequently, we have eliminated any offences which happened in this period as we think they were not committed by the creator of the account”
The identical thing occurred to me, but I’m not super mad since at some point I got an email about suspicious account activity and that I dismissed it, so as far as I know my account could have been used for botting by somebody. My fault for not empowering 2FA, but still, thousands of hours of play time from my teenage years down the drain. I recently launched a new account for OSRS and it has been fine, but besides nostalgia, frankly RuneScape gameplay isn’t that fun for me. I wish it had more to do with friends, rather than being a player grind simulator.
They’ve been around a fantastic series of accounts for people that were wrongly banned years ago. Been seeing posts about people contacting support and receiving their accounts back. I used to bot in like 2012 and quit RuneScape game. Since then I have only played occasionally, maybe a month every couple of years just to test out RuneScape game. My account got banned in 2019 for botting when I was subscribed to RuneScape match. Idk if it turned out to be a super prohibit or a ban that is fictitious but I didn’t bother making another account.
Just wanted to release an update. After a day of jumping to buy OSRS gold through hoops to receive my login info to operate, I got into my accounts and yall were perfect! My permaban from 4 decades back was raised! I was worried I had been gone so long that my account had surely been all my cash and hacked and things gone, but NOPE! Its there!
