Known as the ‘Money pouch glitch,’ these involved players who had a max cash stack, to withdraw cash from the Duel Arena and Crucible, to duplicate their max cash stack. You can easily tell where this went…

It only took a few days for Jagex to fix the glitch, and they weren’t nice about it! On August 7 2012, Daniel Clough put out a statement on the Runescape news feed, ridiculing the bug abusers, naming them, and banning them. He publicly stated each one of the main bug abusers, along with their levels. Daniel Clough stated, “People who abuse bugs will simply not be tolerated and are not welcome to play Runescape.” You could tell Jagex didn’t take this lightly…

Each account was banned, and any associated accounts (such as mules) were wiped. In addition, those who were in contact with the bug, were rolled back.

And there you have it – an insight into the world of Runescape bugs! Stay safe, and make sure you report those bugs!
