My stats are not correct, honestly I am not going to continue playing if they are not fixed. Also, if I am missing everything I had before.
Let me know if you plan to work with players to fix this. I will be playing on another server until hear back from you guys.
It would just feel like a pointless grind and that defeats the purpose I play online games.
How you log on
The entire server (every player not only you) was rolled back to november 20th, We have no way to set your stats or bank back to what they were when the server was attacked.
We cannot give you any special treatment. Everyone was affected the same way (Including staff members)
U gud bro lost over 40mil XP, Kurupt lost over 250mil GP.. It is very unfortunate, it sucks very bad, but there's nothing that can be done.
We did not choose to be attacked. But we have stiffened up security from that of a Brick wall to now Reinforced Metal
It is your choice to do whatever you must. But of any other servers, the best protected has (currently) a weaker protection system than we did originally. Due to the nature of how we rose to the success we were at, there was some jealousy in the community (Not from any of the standing servers there are, it appears to have been attacks from guys who cannot run a successful server and maybe felt they should be where we were.)
Now we push forward again, to rise above and beyond the level of success we were having then. Yes we have taken a hit, but that does not mean we are not just as motivated to deliver you a great playing experience here.
To those who have been loyal and stuck with us through this entire fiasco, Thank you. When we are back to 100% and in a forward moving direction again, we will be looking for ways to give back to you guys. We have been discussing some ideas already, and look forward to bringing them to life.
I've already asked them bro they don't give a fuck.
The response was 'if I do it for you I have to do it for everyone'
Um, yeah, that would be the right thing to do.....
Most of the time if this happened a company would find a way to compensate the players affected... Def what about all those people who spent Irl money on hats and subs be people who spent hours grinding and grinding there's no compensation for all that lost time and money?, How can you expect people to stay when it's no big deal to you that so much effort was lost so easily on top of not giving anyone the right to choose to have their password wiped or not you left alot of people without anyway to get on their accounts. Some made accounts without an email. Or without using the same forum accounts. How do you expect them to recover their accounts? Someone's acc and password while on your server is still their property and they have the right to choosing to change their own passwords or not. What happened to daily backups or was that bullshit?
The massive take away from this is the fact that the people who run this server have made it clear they don't really give a fuck about the people who play on their server. Look at the response from Fah Qu
Success? Sorry, what? Why are you talking like some sort of hero? It's a Runescape Classic server that never has more than 100 people online at a time, and a lot of those seem to be the same people playing multiple accounts. This isn't some venture that is eventually going to take off. You've literally just pirated a 15 year old game and now you're illegally profiting from it. You should probably concentrate on 'delivering a great playing experience' to the people who are already playing.
Nothing in that response makes you feel like they feel bad that literally thousands of hours of human time has been wasted because they didn't put the measures in place to protect their server.
These guys could fix their fuck up if they wanted to, they're just so far detached from reality that they can't even process why this is an issue for us. I guess when you have 24 hours a day to sit in your Mum's basement playing video games it doesn't seem like such a big deal.
If you're new here and you're trying to figure out which server is best. We can now undoubtedly tell you that it is not this one.
Overall I do believe devs/admin/mods have been doing what they're capable of. Just because something is 15 years old and available on the internet does not make it an easy task. This shit takes attention to detail; otherwise you risk snowballing the fuck out of the underlying issue.
With that being said; I don't see myself playing in the foreseeable future. There is nothing fun about grinding stats you've already worked on, in a game that pushes the boundaries of monotony. This community has been excellent save for the few people of which RSC has become the highlight of their life.. for those few, I am truly sorry. Otherwise have fun chums.
Ceranthor i can hardly make out what your actually saying in your post. Anything that was purchased on the shop can and will be reimbursed. We have logs for that.
On the passwords situation. About 10% of players passwords were encrypted in a weaker encryption (im not sure why) those passwords will say invalid if you try to login. You will be forced to change. The rest are encrypted with a very strong type that is impossible to crack. You are free to leave your password the same.
Every account made is forced to use an email. Whether you used a fake email or not will determine the speed of your recovery.
Backups were taken. But if you read around the forums here and discord chat you would see the dedicated server was wiped (which included those backups) we are now filing the backups into multiple places. The reason we had to rollback to the 20th is because there were many items added and deleted, stats tampered with etc. From the hacking. As i said before. It was unfortunate but needed to be done.
@crook yes, we were becoming successful, when the new owner purchased the server, he was given a source code with deleted and sabotaged parts etc. We brought the server from a playerbase of 10 uniques to a daily 80+ uniques at peak hours. In less than 3 months time. Id say thats success. And as i said before aswell, we have taken a hit. But we will continue to push to be better then we were pre-bullshit.
As for compensation for lost time. We unfortunately have no real records of the stats and banks of characters because they were wiped without a chance to save. The only thing we can do is compensate in other forms. Which is why we are having double exp for now and when we are at 100% fixed (before adding new updates) we will be doing some other things
as i said before we are currently coming up with ideas and input from players on ideas is always welcome
We truly are sorry for the loss. We do wish that it could have been avoided. We do wish there was other ways to go about it.. But unfortunately there just isnt. All we can really do is make the regrind quicker and do some fun activities in the meantime
I think everything this far has been handled at a maximum level. The staff have been honest and repaired things rather quickly IMO. The only thing i would suggest is to bring wargear online and make the elixer add 2x while double exp is live. This could greatly help with retraining chars. Thank you to the RSCL staff for keeping the community up to date.
everyone has been hit hard by the rollback but when the xp rate and double xp (if it stops on) it will be easily achievable to reach your previous levelspersonally i lost about 17m strength xp, 20m attack xp, 7m def xpand some other levels and about 4m WC xp on my other characterthis server will come back better i have no doubt
Just a hiccup everyone, we've been down this road before. Danny and Moody will figure this out, stand by.
If that is the case, then I will bid you all farewell. Was nice while it lasted. A couple mods were cool on this server, but I am not going to repeat the grind. Had time off to get some levels and I choose not to redo what I already did.
