Torque, that’s not how it worked at all.
Those who were deemed cheaters/spoofers were given the chance to self-report in order to avoid a full account ban. IF they self-reported and were not able to prove their innocence, they were reset to level 1 with all cash refunded to them. If they did not self-report and were deemed a cheater or a spoofer, they were banned straight up without “bail.”
There was a large “uproar” when the process was laid out. People with high level accounts and large amounts of Uniques all of a sudden became “bored” with the game and left. So the reason there is no uproar is because those who cheated that badly did not lose anything. They didn’t need to spend money, so quitting/banned was like they never played the game to begin with.
Lastly, the reason there are no threads is because they were told to email support directly with the issue. I am sure any topics that were related to it were temporarily hidden awaiting approval to post and then deleted by moderators.
