Runescape 'Pieces of Hate' completes pirate questline
If that opening paragraph does not make sense and seems strictly bizarre that is because the situation is bizarre. Polygon explains that because of the meltdown of Venezuela's economy, inflation has skyrocketed,RS gold food is currently hard to get a hold of, and basic survival has become extremely difficult for many people in the nation. Some individuals have resorted to a unorthodox means of making cash, such as farming dragons in Runescape.
There were guides supporting Venezuelans farming for gold in Runescape by killing dragons and then promoting the gold at a markup for real money. This little gray market tactic is often referred to as gold farming. It's been around for ages and usually large Chinese mafioso type companies have experienced the gold farming market cornered.
Well, regulars out of Runescape that are not out of Venezuela took umbrage with the gold farmers from the South American nation and above on the sub-Reddit to get Jagex's match, a manual was created on the best way to aim and kill Venezuelan players as a form of punishment.
A moderator ended up coming in and locking the thread, stating that the community's activities portrayed them as racist and buy Runescape gold. The main issue being, that simply targeting a Venezuelan player doesn't mean that you're targeting a gold farmer.
