As many of you our community members are aware through our honest communications.Through working with different developers over the course of RSCLegacy's ownership transition late last year our database was leaked from what seemed like help but would really be hindrances.
Individuals posed as Developers and acting as team mates withing the staff regime betrayed us an stole our databases.
From then we advised everyone to change passwords on their accounts very openly and honestly on multiple occasions through means online and in-game; if assistance was needed to recover the accounts users were advised to contact staff to facilitate recovery.
At this point the OLD leaked database has made it into many malicious hands by now through rogue distribution; as the months went on we continued to urge our players to change their passwords on game accounts and forums.
Some adhered right away to the best practices we put out an we thank you for that!
Going forward any account compromisations as a result of users not changing their passwords and subjecting themselves to their passwords being cracked; will not be investigated.
It is unfortunate that some folks feel the need to wreak havoc and take away from others time an efforts invested here however it's time to continue forward with server aspirations.
The investigations are extremely timely and difficult to trace back over longer spans of time; furthermore the time being invested into investigation, tracking of activity and going about re-reimbursement takes time and efforts away from active player engagement and continual effort to provide and add value to this game and server.
We stand at about the three month mark from the leak and server reconciliation. Multiple communications regarding account safety and changing of passwords have been put out and articulated; we feel this has been an ample window to have players work with staff members and to allow users passwords to be changed.
There will be those who do not agree with this but we are a determined team of a small group of gentlemen working to bring greatness to RSCLegacy in the ways we are personally able to; taking this stance ensure our ability to focus our efforts forward and toward the future of RSCLegacy
Stay safe and game smart!
