Account hacking is the standard in the MMORPG


Account hacking is the standard in the MMORPG genre, and gamers who don't secure their account with two-factor authenticators frequently learn the hard way. However, nothing could have protected several RuneScape players from lately losing wealth equal to OSRS gold around 100 billion in-game coins (that would sell for approximately $100,000 to a third-party website) in the hands of a programmer.

Although RuneScape has been around for well over a decade, the sport is far from dead. Much like WoW content updates keep the player base addicted, and gamers seem to combine at a pace.

As is true with MMOs, RuneScape has an active third-party gold-selling community. For reference, 1 billion in-game coins would be the equivalent of approximately $1,000 in real life.

Naturally, this form of trading is against the game's terms of service, but that doesn't stop sites which facilitate that sort of trading from existing and thriving.Given the real-world worth of RuneScape's in-game currency, obviously, players with especially large amounts of coins jealously protect their hordes against thieving. They use tools such as authenticators, security questions, and in-game bank pins to protect their accounts.
